Christmas in Paris

At the beginning of December, I headed off to Paris for the day with one of my best friends, S. We went together in June (You can read about it here, here and here!) and wanted to go back and see the city in it's festive glow. 

Paris is my place to go when I just want to escape from everyday life. It's only a little over 2 hours from London and, the adventures you can have there are endless. It's so easy to get caught up in the magic and excitement the city seems to have plenty of.

Plus, the cakes are amazing and, who doesn't like cake?

The first stop of the day was Angelina where, we picked up a Chocolat Chaud each. The sugar fix definitely kept us going until our late lunch at Chez Janou where our dishes of steak (moi), Tuna (S) and a 'healthy' portion of their amazing chocolate mousse, gave us energy for the rest of the day.

We finished our day at Merci where after a bit of shopping we sat and relaxed over a pot of tea at their used book cafe. The store itself is an absolute must when in Paris - it's a perfect place to wander around for a couple of hours and look at all the lovely pieces they have.

My Paris haul: obviously a visit to my favourite Pharmacie in the Marais to stock up on some of my essential beauty products (Bioderma obsessed!) was a must and, I had to bring back some french snacks for Christmas. Check out the size of the Kinder Eggs!
