J'adore le Paris~








At the end of January my boyfriend and I had a lovely weekend break in Paris celebrating our anniversary. I last visited Paris back in 2003 but I was unfortunately very ill from food poisoning so ended up not seeing much of Paris at all. For this trip we booked the Monterosa Hotel which we were extremely pleased with, it was modern and clean and the price was very reasonable as well.

The main part of our trip was spent going round the museums in the city centre but the highlight was definitely going to Laduree and Angelina, their cakes and pastries were just too cute and tasty! It was like heaven for me and I loved the rose and raspberry profiterole I had at Laduree. The hot chocolate there was also nicer than the one at Angelina as that was just a little too sweet for me. I would go back to Paris tomorrow just to buy cakes and macaroons if I could!

Another yummy find was at the Pierre Herme near Concorde, I bought a selection of macaroons before I got onto the Eurostar and they were the best macaroons I'd ever had. All the fruity flavours were delicious and they also had creme brûlée!

The trip was lovely and hopefully we'll be going there again soon! I'm sure I'll need to go and visit their bakeries and cake shops to get some inspirations for my jewellery anyway :p x
