  PARIS DAY TRIP  //  MARCH 2013

OH LA LA! Last month I ventured across the Channel avec my GIRL STOLE lover Lereese and our pal Emma for a girly day galavanting around Paris. I hadn't been to the City of Luuuuuurve since I were a wee lass and so was super excited to get my tourist on with my gal. 

Luckily for us the sun had his big floppy hat on so we made the most of the crisp dry day by boarding a boat and cruising down the River Seine. Boats and hoes baby. The Seine was the perfect place to view the city's stunning sights from the Alexander lll Bridge to the Champs-Elysees, the Lourve to the Hotel de Ville and my absolute fave of all faves - Notre Dame Cathedral. I'm totally in awe of Notre Dame's magnificent Medieval architecture and am desperate to take a tour next time I'm in town.

Craving some understated Parisian culture we hit the historical district of Las Marais in search of boozy bevvies and pre-loved apparel. Lereese, Emma and I stumbled across a quaint little cafe with a friendly barman called DJ who let us pour our own pints and gave us a lesson in French lingo. We roamed the cobbled streets soaking in the laid-back atmosphere and peering longingly into shop windows filled with vintage clothes and antique trinkets, until we peered into a patisserie. Tartes and macaroons beckoned to us and before you could say Pan au Chocolat we were plonked down with a pot of tea, elbows deep in cakey goodness. I opted for a larger than life slice of Mille Feux which I inhaled in an instant and felt my hips bulge as I did so. Worth it.

No day trip to Paris would be complete without a trip to the iconic Eiffel Tower. We timed it to perfection arriving just as the Tower's lights began to flicker and managed to squeeze in a few obligatory 'under the Eiffel' pics before we were Blighty bound. Audrey was right - Paris is always a good idea.

Would YOU say oui or non to a trip to Paris???
