Mini DeLites: Paris, Paris, Paris

Paris, France was the last & final destination of our travels.


Lots of croissants, long strolls, harps ( like the instrument ), bread, more bread, museums, sites, & red wine.

Everything Paris is made of.

When we arrived to our hotel, Le Bristol Paris, we immediately scoured the premise for the two cats, Fa-raon & Kleopatre, who reside in the hotel. They’re very difficult to find because they hide AND they had sort of a tiff. You know, like they got into a little confrontation so the girl cat makes the boy cat sit in the garden while she stretches out on her own personal chaise lounge filing her toenails. Their life is one of a kind. When in Paris, go by or stay at the hotel & find the cats. Trust me, they’re a trip.

Outfit theme was blacks & whites with pops of red. Red shiny nails is always my go to in Paris. It feels right when sipping a whole milk cappuccino.

Michael & I did a lot of walking, thank God because BREAD. We essentially walked everywhere. One day we basically got lost on the streets of Paris. We found a spot to sip coffee then walked to a tiny, tiny hole in the wall crepe store. The woman was so kind & made us the most delicious Nutella crepes in front of our face. Honestly, they were the best thing to ever hit my lips.

( Oh, as you know if you listened to last week’s podcast, I lost a FUCKING DIAMOND EARRING in Paris. Shoot me. That whole story is recapped on this week’s Episode 24. Very, very annoying. Let’s just say Michael…was not pleased. Christmas is around the corner, nudgey-nudge ).

If you’re thinking of traveling abroad, I highly recommend looking into Paris or France in general. & if you’re in college & thinking of traveling abroad but not pulling the trigger: why not? GO FOR IT! DO IT! I can honestly say I wish I spent AT LEAST two semesters abroad. College is the ideal time for you to do whatever the fuck you want. Travel! Look into the programs through your school, it will shock you how inexpensive some of the programs are.

Speaking of traveling abroad, we met up with Michael’s sister, Tara, who’s been traveling abroad since she was sixteen years old! She’s now 21 years old & speaks three languages. Tara literally blew my mind. To be that cultured & worldly at such a young age is badass. We talked to her A LOT about how she makes it work on a budget. I hope each & every college student who’s reading right now will RUN to their counselor tomorrow & inquire about studying abroad.

Just my two cents.

What do I know though because I’m currently in front of the T.V. absorbing Housewives of OC ( what is Kelly’s problem? ), stuffing my face with homemade watermelon jerky.

You should know, A LOT of madness has been going on in my life lately…& I will update you guys very soon. I haven’t had a chance to really sit down & pour my heart out on here lately. No problem though, because sometimes stepping away from something ( whether you take a personal break or travel ) can really encourage creativity. I’ve recognized that little lesson the hard way.

Ok that’s all for today.


Paris Itinerary is coming ( more Paris here )! And of course, Michael already did St. Tropez so we covered that. ALSO, I have NOT forgotten to share outfit details from our trip…just give me a minute because it’s A LOT of info. The white bomber I’m wearing in this post is MY FAVORITE EVER & you can find it here.

  1. can you have michael’s sister on for a guest post on how to travel the world on a budget???

  2. Can I just say I am LOVING all your outfit?!. I am all about “color coding” a trip and totally agree about shiny red vampy nails in France. Also, wanted to echo what you said for anyone that could possibly be reading this is that my biggest regret in life is not traveling abroad. I had the opportunity to for Angers, France back in 2007 and I chickened out for whatever reason & even had the opportunity for the wine industry (interning abroad in some ridiculous cool places, etc) and I didn’t for even dumber reasons. Anyways, adding Paris to our list especially this hotel (for the cats alone!) and that cutie Kleopatre has life all figured out – I can take a tip or two from her! 😉 x Shannon

    1. Ahhhh you guys are giving me the itch to travel abroad.. I study Medieval Literature and there is so much opportunity to go abroad to sit in old European libraries and look at ancient manuscripts. And of course tour the country on the days I have off!
      I know I would regret not doing it. I just need to get my ish together.

    2. Dressing for the place you’re traveling is half of the fun right?! LOL. Oh wow those sound like amazing opportunities. I hope you make it to Paris soon : ) xx

  3. Okay so I LOVE the Brendan Bomber from Touche and Morgan Stewart is just… perf. Ya know?

    The bomber is definitely on my wishlist this Xmas. I keep seeing it everywhere and I just need to give in and get one already!

    Love your photos, as always. Paris is such a gorgeous place to be. Europe in general is just effing amazing.

    Can’t wait to read your next post. I know you’re getting into Vitamin Infusions and I’ve been doing them for almost a year now. They’re amazing right? Can’t wait to see your take on them.



    1. I’m obsessed with the bomber. Highly recommend! YES! Can’t wait to post on it. What vitamin infusions have you been incorporating!? xx

  4. Im actually a college student and have traveled SO MUCH thanks to my school and Humanitarian trips. A lot of times yo can find that those trips are funded through other organizations so you really only need spending money and you do get time to explore. Just little tip!

    1. GREAT tip Hanna! There are so many resources out there if you just do some looking to make travel affordable. Thanks for sharing : ) xx

  5. Loved this post because…1) I’m literally sitting here right now planning my outfits, itinerary, etc. for my Paris trip in October, 2) I completely agree with you on traveling while in school, I wish I had read advice like yours when I was in high school, my biggest regret is not traveling abroad in high school and 2 semesters in college (I had a boyfriend at the time and I didn’t want to lose him…worst decision EVER!), and 3) seriously, what is up with Kelly on OC Housewives, she’s f*ing crazy town!

    1. Aw thanks so much for the support Cari! Have an AMAZING time in Paris. What are you most excited to do while you’re there? xx

  6. Can you please do like a Paris guide????? Going in December and I’ve been before so I’ve got the touristy stuff checked off but I’m interested in some of your recs for restaurants and things to do that aren’t necessarily in guide books!

    1. Hi Courtney! Michael & I are working on one now! Should be up soon!

      In the meantime, check these out:

      Hope that help xx

  7. It’s remarkable to visit this web page and reading the views
    of all colleagues on the topic of this piece of writing, while
    I am also zealous of getting familiarity.
