So.....First of all a very Happy New Year to all of you girlies and men (Dad I know your reading this). 2016 was a year where I had a lot of ups and downs and I am so ready for the 2017 roller coaster.
This look was shot on my trip to Paris at the weekend where I had to add as much warm accessories as possible because it was pretty chilly. I could not get over the quality of this new black fitted blazer not to mention the amazing gold button detail.....LOVE! I picked up these black stretchy knee high boots a couple of weeks ago and no joke I have been living in them ever since, for anyone who doesn't like to wear a heel too high or just needs comfy every day boot heels these are divine. Now to one of my new favorite purchases my new bag which screamed Gucci vibes to me in store, there is plenty of room inside for all of your unnecessary items all of us women feel we "need" and the price is perfect for all our poor bank accounts after the Christmas period (all items linked above).

In the middle of December I finished up my time as an official International Business Studies student here in the city of Dornbirn, Austria and ever since I have been doing as much skiing and traveling as possible before I head home this Saturday after the most amazing five months of my life.
I am sure many of you are already aware my Mum lives in France and as a result I have been lucky enough to visit in particular Paris many times over the past couple of years. I am actually just in the door from my most recent trip and you guys have been Snapping, Facebooking etc. requesting my tips for all of your upcoming trips to Paris so below are a couple of random tips, spots etc. I think you all need to know about before hitting the city.


The Metro and comfy shoes will be your BFF

Despite the fact, the metro's may not be the cleanest they are extremely efficient and get you pretty much everywhere you need to be in the city in a short space of time, of course depending on where you need to go. Any of you guys going for a small trip my advice would be to purchase a book of metro tickets, this is where you get 10 tickets for around €14 which actually saves you a little bit of money appose to purchasing a ticket each time......more money for shopping! Also, as much as we all love our heels make sure to bring some comfy feet wear at least for during the day, you do not want blisters after half a day of walking the city.


Who doesn't love fresh treats?

So, it is no secret France in known for its amazing bakery's and let me tell you Paris is covered in them...sorry January diet ;)
Apart from the amazing local bakery's that are on pretty much every corner and are home to all of the amazing macaroons, croissants etc. one place which is a real treat for me to visit is the Ladurée Paris cafe on the Champs-Elysées, this is a luxury bakery like no other and if you are a macaroon lover you have to pop in for a treat it is just amazing and the building inside is something else.


Tasty dinner with a view

As you can imagine it can be a little more on the pricey side to eat near the tourist spots and to be honest a lot of the food is not worth the price tag but this weekend I found a gem 100% worth paying a visit to. The Frame Restaurant which is located in the Hotel Pullman right by the Eiffel Tower was an absolute treat after a long day of exploring the city from the amazing food and drinks to the friendly service I would one hundred percent recommend it for dinner. We were also lucky enough to be located right beside the window which gave us an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower at night.




Down by the water

This weekend we took a one hour boat trip along the Seine for around an hour which was really nice to do and it doesn't break the bank. You can book the trips in Paris when you arrive all you need to do is walk along Seine around the Eiffel Tower and you will be able to see the range of boats and offers they have, obviously, their availability will depend on the time of the year etc. but our particular boat this week offered a trip every 30 minutes so you will be sure to find one to suit you. It would also be worth your while to check online as you can find some deals there also. 
Every time I have visited Paris I have gone up the Eiffel Tower because I just love it! This weekend we went to the very top which meant we bought a summit ticket, this costs a little bit more but if you are not a fan of heights or you just don't want to purchase the summit option you can go to the level below and still take in all the amazing views of the city. 
I have also gone for dinner and champagne a little over a year ago with my Mum along the Seine which was a little more pricey but worth it.


You can’t forget

The Eiffel Tower is something I visit every single time I visit the city, this time we went up around 4pm which meant we got to see the amazing views in the light but also see the tower in darkness a short while after getting down.
Another thing to keep in mind is the time of year you are going, we were lucky this time because its January and the majority of people are just back to work etc. it was pretty quiet so thank the lord we didn't have to queue for very long...no one likes them long dreaded queues.

  3. What adds to the fashion quotient of boat shoes is its durability. A nice pair of boat shoes looks even better after several seasons of usage, drenched in seawater number of times.

  4. The next thing that you have to do after choosing a style is to make sure you choose a colour that is appropriate for what you are wearing, no one wants others to be able to see their underwear through their dress as this can often be incredibly humiliating. Matterhorn vêtement en gros
