As a Christmas present to my mum, my sister and I brought her tickets to Paris! So on Friday off we went on the Eurostar to Paris for 2 days. It was 2 days filled with lots and lots of walking. I haven't walked that much in years, haha. As well as the walking, we also did a lot of shopping and eating. I went to a few vintage shops recommended by a friend and was pleasantly shocked at how cheap everything was. I now have an overload of polka dotted items (one of the shirts I brought I'm wearing above). So expect a lot more posts filled with polka dots! Though we went to some other stores, such as Etam, Stradivarious and Eleven Paris. Eleven Paris was an amazing little shop, the clothes were gorgeously simple and I wish I hadn't spent most of my money in other shops, as I found such a lovely shirt I wanted there in such a lovely shade of green.
The first place we went to after we got off the Eurostar was Sacre Couer, which was amazing. You had to walk up a bazillion steps and then you were greeted by the sight of a beautiful church. The most rewarding part of visiting there was the view. It was gorgeous, you could see across most of the city. Also we went inside the church and there were nuns singing and they had the prettiest of voices!
The next day we went to this lovely cafe called Cafe de Flore, which was so so lovely. I had the best hot chocolate I ever had there, and some really yummy French onion soup. This was the best place we went to eat, it was so busy and bursting with people.
One of my favourite things about the city was the graffiti and posters that were placed everywhere. Whilst
shopping we came across a Mario on one wall and a really cool horror style poster that was peeling off on another. Though my favourite one was definitely the wall with "regarde le ciel" sprayed on it.
Sorry about the amount of photos, I took a lot!
