I have just returned from a magical two days in Paris with fellow blogger Susan of Unefemme. We stayed in a very comfortable hotel, the K+K Hotel Cayre in the heart of St. Germain. We spent our time sitting in cafes, people watching (I will be posting street style photos shortly) and of course some shopping! The shops in Paris were stylishly and festively decorated.
The beautiful river Seine at dust. Such an iconic symbol of Paris.
Festive Christmas decorations and delicious looking chocolates. I love the attention to detail so evident in the way the french present their gifts.
Susan and I took time out to indulge in some sensual perfume testing. First off we checked out Annik Goutal. Susan fell for the exotic Rose Pompon
We went to the Avedon exhibition at the Bibliotheque National. The portrait photography was absolutely stunning. Highly recommended if you are visiting Paris before 26th Ferry 2017. I will be showing some of the photographs in detail next week.
We also spend a couple of hours checking out the latest styles at Le Bon Marche Rive Gauche. A devine department store. Not too large that you feel overwhelmed. The range of brands were comprehensive and extremely chic. We checked out more perfume in the make-up department. Ellenisia by Penhaligon’s was my favourite. Penhaligon’s perfumes are available at Bloomingdales and Feelunique. It was closely followed by Premier Figuier Extreme by L’Artisan Parfumeur, Available at Bloomingdales and Selfridges.
Au revoir for now. I will be back next week with some more news and views from Paris and some street style photos.

Lovely ladys in a lovely city
Beautiful! I can’t wait to see more pictures.I will be visiting Paris in February so your photos are whetting my appetite ( and giving me wardrobe ideas).
I like your short boots! What brand are they?
They are by Rupert Sanderson. I bought them in an outlet village a couple of years ago. They do seem to have similar at Yoox and I found a pair at Vestiaire.
You can find very similar ones at Nordstrom.
You look fabulous in that burgundy cape! Wish I could sniff your favorite scents.
What a lovely post! I have never been to Paris, but feel this is the year that I will be going! Your photos are gorgeous and I love your cape! I just bought one in a plaid and can’t wait to wear it! Have a lovely day!
Thank you for your comment Britta. I am sure you will look great in your plaid cape.
Josephine, thank you again for joining me in Paris! I really enjoyed our visit!
Fabulous photos. Really like the Cape and handbag on you too.
Thank you Dee. Burgundy is my favourite colour this season
Have so enjoyed your and Susan’s trip. Thank you so much for going and posting about it so nicely. Looking forward to even more pix and stories later this week. Merry Christmas!
What a great trip and such fun to see all the photos! Hope Susan is back home safe and sound! It was perfect that you had such good weather too…
