IT GETS ME EVERY TIME. IN ANY SEASON. Anyone else?
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.
Hope you are all doing amazing – love chatting with you guys on Snapchat.
Talk soon, lauryn x
