My visit to Paris was super short, but I still found time to snatch me some goodies in between all the sightseeing, lunches, dinners etc. To tell you the truth, I'm still surprised at the tiny amount of stuff I got back with me, usually I go a bit gaga with shopping when I'm abroad. This time, in terms of both time and money, it seems that we went all out on the food and wine (how can you ever pass on the daily pain au chocolat, coffee and orange juice for breakfast or the yummy desserts during tea time or the cheese?!) and put our shopping on the back burner.
Yet, I'm still super duper proud of my bits and bobs from Paris. My little flask from a tiny shop near Canal Saint-Martin and the Bioderma pack from the pharmacy near the Opera. My "merci" notebook and stickers from "La Petite Epicerie", a small crafts and cooking shop in the Notre Dame area and my cobalt blue frame from Urban Outfitters in La Fayette. My 'A spell a day' book as well as the make-up wipes and make-up brush cleaner from Sephora. The magnetic sticky notes I purchased from the Notre Dame area (again) and the retro phone case which is currently on my phone from Centre Georges Pompidou. Finally, some bars of soap and chocolates for my friends from Montmartre (both items not featuring in the post, the latter because they were eaten/almost entirely consumed before I had the chance to remember to snap a photo!)
On the last day, I also treated myself to a navy blue coat from ZARA (which I'll soon show you in an OOTD post) and a pair of taupe sandals; looking forward to the warmer days, so I can wear those.
Hope you enjoyed this brief post, off to use my sticky notes!! :D
