Visiting Paris is one of my favourite things to do, and with the city only 2.5 hours away from London by Eurostar, it’s easy enough to go for the day.
So, I thought I’d fill you in on what a typical day trip to Paris for me looks like! 

Angelina is always the first port of call when I get to Paris, grabbing one of their famous hot chocolates to go and heading to my favourite neighbourhood, Le Marais.

When it comes to Le Marais I love the familiarity of it and the fact that it has everything Parisian written all over it, oh and the Chanel store is all sorts of beautiful. Grabbing a falafel to go from L’as du Falafel, macarons from Carette, and a few trinkets from Merci are my go-to things I have to do when in the city but, aside from those there is so much to do and see.

I have my favourite restaurants in the city, but I do try to visit a new one each time I’m over there. Pink Mamma is my newest favourite and an easy walk to Montmarte and the Sacre Coeur (more about the restaurant here). Sometimes though, I like to go back to an old favourite, Chez Janou in Le Marais as having some of their chocolate mousse is the best thing ever.

If I have time, I try to go and see an exhibition - Paris always has something interesting going on, and currently you have the Christian Dior, Couturier du Reve at Musée des Arts décoratifs and Irving Penn at Le Grand Palais, both absolute must-sees.

Then it's back to Gare du Nord to catch the Eurostar. I like to walk back to the train station instead of getting the metro, as the streets and buildings are so pretty to look at, and you never know what you’ll stumble across.

Paris is a dream, and I’ll never tire of visiting.
