MY FIRST TIME IN PARIS!
Chyba jeszcze nigdy tyle nie podróżowałam! To wspaniałe, że dzięki blogowaniu mogę zawitać do tylu nowych miejsc, a teraz w końcu przyszła pora na miasto w którym jeszcze nie byłam. Robię to, co kocham, a przy okazji zwiedzam świat i co najważniejsze – mogę Was w te podróże ze sobą zabrać! Dlatego dzisiaj usiądźcie wygodnie, bo zwiedzamy… Paryż! ^^ Zostałam tu zaproszona przez markę Claire’s, z okazji wypuszczenia międzynarodowego lookbooka (o czym napiszę więcej w nowej notce). Jako, że w Paryżu jestem po raz pierwszy, oficjalnie czuję się zobowiązana do przyznania, że miasto jest tak piękne, że wcale nie trzeba być zakochanym, żeby to docenić hah 😉 Kiedy mam trzy dni i grafik napięty jak struna, trudno oczekiwać, że zobaczę wszystko o czym zawsze marzyłam, dlatego wieża Eiffla, Luwr czy inne tego typu miejsca muszą jeszcze poczekać do następnego razu. Już teraz wiem, że na pewno tu wrócę! Paryż jest jak smakowity tort, którym trzeba się delektować i jeść po kawałeczku!
I think that I’ve never travelled so much before! It’s great that thanks to blogging I can visit so many new places. Now the time has come for a city that I haven’t been to yet. It’s magnificent that I do what I love and by doing it I have a chance to explore the world and, above all, I can take you with me! So today sit back, cause we’ll be visiting… Paris! ^^ I was invited to come here by Claire’s, on the occasion of launching an international lookbook about which I will write you about in another post. As it’s my first time in Paris, I feel obliged to confirm that the city is so beautiful, that it doesn’t even require being in love to appreciate it, ha-ha 😉 Clearly, when I’m here for just three days and my schedule is very tight, it’s hard to expect that I’m going to see everything that I’ve ever dreamt of seeing. The Eiffel Tower, Louvre and some other places are gonna have to wait until the next time. Now I know, that I’ll come back here for sure! Paris is like a tasty cake, which one has to savor and eat piece by piece!
During my meeting with the French way of living I’ve had the company of the magnificent Laura (The Stilettoholic), who is a blogger and a stylist herself. Paris is her home town so she knows all of its nooks! 😉 On Monday morning, my first day here, we decided to have a little walk. When we got off the tube we walked a bit in the surroundings of the Opera. As I was terribly hungry we went to ‘Le Gramont’ to have dinner. I was curious whether what they say about the French cuisine is true, so I ordered an onion soup, salmon and… snails ;D Laura was a bit amused by my flair for discovering things. She wasn’t convinced to go for the snails as well, as she simply doesn’t like them. I decided to try them anyway and I’m happy I did- they were delicious! ^^ I tried them before in Maroco, but they weren’t even half as tasty. As they say, fear doubles all! 😉
Then we decided to visit Place Vendôme, where you can find jewellery shops of the most popular brands, such as Chanel, Cartier, Dior or Commes de Garcons. It’s an ideal place to get trinkets, or, like in my case, just to have a look at them 😉 It was dark already, so all of the shop windows were visible. To get to the square we had to walk through the allegedly most expensive street in Paris! I was amazed by the ‘Repetto‘ store, which used to sell only ballet shoes and other paraphernalia for ballerinas, now known for producing pumps and bags for ‘common use’ as well.
On the second day, as a typical tourist should do, I insisted on having some pictures taken with the Eiffel Tower in the background. That is why we decided to go to Tuileries Gardens, where it is perfectly visible from. And here is where I have to agree with the books again- the view of the Gardens and the Tower above them just takes one’s breath away! Next time I’m here I’ll definitely have to come closer to the Tower! 😉 After the photo shoot there was a perfect time for another obligatory matter, namely macarons. When I was doing the research, where the most popular ones are to be bought, the Ladurée confectionary won conclusively. This time, however we couldn’t get there, so I had to satisfy my appetite by… a little shopping 😉 We visited a few vintage shops (Come On Eileen also) so I was finally able to provide for my fashion demand. I was looking for some unique specimens, which, in a few years from now, would remind me of Paris. And what did I buy? That’s what you’re gonna find out soon, but believe me, now I think I know what it means to be in heaven! I’m planning to come back for more! ;)))
