When in Paris...
A couple of weekends ago we decided to do a last minute, exciting trip to the beautiful and romantic city of Paris. Myself, Jordan and Rosie packed our things and off we went ready for a weekend adventure! It had been ages since I had been there....a few distant and vague memories of Disney land, French hip hop and fresh baguettes were pretty much what Paris boiled down to for me, so I was super excited to go back!
Waking up at 4am in the morning is definitely NOT the one.... but the quick journey (for which most of it we were all snoring) meant we got there at 9am in the morning and spent the whole day roaming the streets, finding shooting locations and discovering the little treasures of the backstreets of Paris. Of course, what's a trip to Paris without the very occasional pit stop for red wine and a traditional cheese board and fresh bread? This was definitely a highlight.
Now if you're a fan of macaroons, which, to be honest, I never thought I was - then you HAVE to go to Laduree! It is unbelievable. You can get macaroons in any flavour, colour and size and they simply melt in your mouth in one bite. It's a super cute, traditional looking French Patisserie and is so beautiful inside. Tip : Go for the coconut macaroon - simply divine!
After visiting pretty much all the most famous monuments in Paris on Saturday including The Eiffel tower, The Arc de Triomphe and the Notre Dame, we decided to treat ourselves to a yummy, tender steak in the evening at 'The Beef House' however funnily enough it's not the steak I am about to rave about, it was in fact the unbelievable, mouth watering, jaw dropping, over sized profiterole dessert that they gave us! One huge profiterole covered in melted chocolate and freshly whipped cream covering layers of gooey, rich chocolate and ice cream (Mmmm I'm hungry thinking about it) The Beef House definitely surpassed our expectations and I would definitely go back...even if it is only for the profiterole!
Sunday consisted of a similar itinerary and we continued to roam the streets looking for the coolest places to shoot. Thank god it didn't rain! We were really lucky but it was so cold and even more so than London which is always a tough one to beat.
Our Eurostar back was nothing short of a nightmare being stuck on it for at least 6 hours...but we shan't go in to that now, we'll stick to the positives. Paris, you were brilliant, we'll be back!!!
Hope you like the photos :) :)
