Last weekend, my sister and I took a short trip to Paris. We got the Eurostar extremely early on the Saturday morning and left really late on the Sunday evening. We spent two days shopping along the Champs Elysees, walking around the christmas markets and took trips to Galleries Lafayette. We've been to Paris many times before, so two days was enough for what we wanted to see. We tried to do things that we haven't seen before, like the effile tower at night, which is absolutely stunning, read: magical. We also wanted to check out the Christmas markets and Christmas lights, we've never been to Paris at Christmas time so it was a nice change to going in the summer, even if it was freezing.
We stayed in a lovely hotel (Hotel Friedland) just off the Champs Élysées, which I'd highly recommend. We wished we could have stayed longer just so we could enjoy the hotel luxuries. Free wifi was also available and all the staff were so friendly and welcoming, I'd defiantly visit again.
Of course a trip to Paris would not be complete without two things: regular trips to sephora and macaroons. We visited Sephora a total of 5 times throughout the trip, yes I have a problem. There will be a haul going up after Christmas because I did pick a few things up as Christmas presents. I tried to be well behaved but we all know that was never going to happen, I can finally cross a few, read: A lot. Off my makeup wish list now.
Laduree macaroons are my favourite, there are now a few shops doted around London but it felt even more special going in and seeing what the flagship Paris store had to offer. In interiors of the store were even more beautiful than the outside, it felt very old and vintage with gold and mint green decor (My two fave colours).
Thank you for reading, part two will be up on Monday so don't forget to come back to check that out. In the meantime head over to my Instagram (@whatlucyloves) where I have posted a few more of my snaps on there.
