A peek in my holiday album – Paris edition

I love going on little city breaks and for the first weekend of 2019, we took a trip to Paris. Me and my boyfriend Bren decided to treat each other to a weekend in Paris as a Christmas present to each other.

I have been to Paris a few times before, so I was excited to go again, Paris is one of my favourite places. I love all the beautiful buildings and Paris has some fascinating history. You are spoilt for choice on what to visit, and every time I visit I always discover something new!

We stayed in a lovely Hotel in Rue Monge, which is in the Latin Quarter, and very close the Norte Dame Cathedral.

Time to explore

We explored the area around Norte Dame, went to Louve Museum, which we got a little lost in! Because this was the first weekend of the New Year, a lot of Christmas decorations were still up, so it felt really Christmassy. We explored a Christmas Market which was near the Lovue and had loads of pastries and other tasty treats.


We headed the Palais Garnier and Galeries Lafayette which is probably the biggest department store I have ever visited. It was amazing, they had a spectacular Christmas display in the center of the store, which looked like something that belonged in V&A.

A few of my main highlights of the trip was finding a lovely little square not far from our hotel called Rue Blainville, which had lots of bars and restaurants to choose from. We found a lovely bar and restaurant called La Contrescape, where I had a few cocktails.

The Highlights

We also walked down a very quiet Champs-Elyseees and climbed to the top of The Arc de Triomphe.

Here are some of my favourite snaps from this trip. (If I look a bit different, it’s because someone left their glasses at home!)

Hope you enjoyed a little peek in the Paris Edition of my holiday Album. Have been away lately? I’d love to know, leave me a comment in the box below xx
