Travel // Ladurée, Paris

>> Wednesday, November 24, 2010

A visit to Paris is only complete once you have visit the original macaroon maker, Ladurée. Our last day in Paris was an intense rush as we were attempting to meet up with our friends' friends, and then me and my friend were trying to meet up with our men (we split up to do some girls' shopping without the boys!). We were all suppose to meet under the Arc de Triomphe at 3pm and then proceed to go up the Eiffel Tower, but of course it didn't go to plan. My friend and I ended up waiting underneath the Arc de Triomphe for about 2 hours, but alas no one showed up! So we decided to walk down the Champs Elysées and take in the Parisienne atmosphere. We saw so many people with Ladurée bags, but couldn't find the store, and because of how late it was getting (since we missed a couple of hours waiting) we thought we would leave Paris without trying the famous macaroons.

Anyway, fast forward a couple of hours and we finally meet up with our boys (surprised they didn't get lost) and we decide to find dinner then walk down the Champs Elysées all the way to the Lourve. As we are searching for a good restaurant to eat at, low and behold we come across the annex of Ladurée! To say I was excited is a massive understatement!

After a little line up and a few hard decisions later we had our little pack of macaroons and took them down to the Lourve to enjoy by the fountain and the mesmerising pyramid :)

Just a Minute in...November

Watching... Criminal Minds - season 5 - I'm trying so hard to catch up the the current episodes, but watching it online from a dial-up speed internet connection is proving to be an issue!
Lemon slice made by moi!
Reading... 'The Girl who kicked the Hornet's Nest' by Stieg Larsson: The third book in the series! Can only read it in large chunks of time because of the description and suspense overload.
Listening... Marching bands playing as wedding season kicks off here in Nepal! The whole wedding party walks around the streets with a wedding band followed by their family and friends. Talk about a celebration!
Wanting... Lace shorts and a khaki playsuit for Thailand :)
Excited about... My birthday next week. But not so excited about the turning 24 years old bit :P

'Just a minute' is a fabulous idea from these ladies: click here and here...

I love these Zara Wedge Court shoes with strap. It's the new 'it' shoe apparently! Just asks Gwyneth...


Olivia's Cape

>> Monday, November 8, 2010

I love Olivia Palermo's cape while out shopping in New York City. It's By Malene Birger and looks so warm and cozy and so perfect for the upcoming winter!

Also, have you heard the news? That The City is not returning for a third season! So sad...but I guess there is only so much of the same drama they can show! Anyway, Olivia is making her mark in the modeling world. Her latest involvement with Mango, modeling with her model boyfriend, have everyone going crazy in the fashion blog world! I'm wondering if she's going to take over Scarlett Johansson's role as the brands' ambassador. But I guess we'll have to wait and see!


Enchanté, Riva!

Chanel's beautiful new nail colour for Spring 2011, that I just can't wait to get my little fingers on! It's a pastel blue colour called, Riva.

Now everyone, say together with me: "Hello Riva!"

Just a Minute in...October

>> Friday, November 5, 2010

Am I allowed to post for October now? It's only early November. Coz to me, October just ended now that our trip has finished and we are back in Nepal! So I thought I would reminisce about what we were doing on my favourite day of our trip, which was of course our first full day in Paris!

Let me just fill you in: we've just spent 4 days in Morocco - 2 days of which my husband and our friends we were traveling with, were sick (me too, but not as bad as them).

It's Monday 24th October, 2010: we are exhausted, excited to be in Paris and have a cute little apartment in the 10th arrondissement which I found via (and I highly recommend using it!).

Watching... Criminal Minds - season 4 - put the whole thing on my ipod just for our journey!
I think it should be: what am I not eating! But it's safe to say that croissants seem to be what I keep shoving in my mouth!
Reading... 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson (note: I ended up finishing it in 2 days)
Listening... To beautiful French being spoken all around me and loving it!
Wanting... For once in a long time, nothing. I'm quite content after our trip :) I went into lots of shops and fulfilled my little list from 'Just a Minute in...September'
Excited about... And probably still excited about seeing the beautiful Eiffel Tower, Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame, the River Seine, the Lourve, the Parisienne buildings, eating crepes filled with nutella and almonds, eating baguettes...I could seriously go on!

Paris stole another heart...which was mine.

Stay tuned for more posts from our trip :)
