Paris; short but sweet.

A surprise trip to Paris – every gal’s dream, no? Apparently, not so much in Italy…

It’s somewhere i’ve always envisioned loving – because PARIS, plus doesn’t everyone imagine themselves prancing around the streets wearing fur coats; croissant in one hand your lover holding the other, speaking fluent french (year 10 standard, although I was complimented on my perfect “bonjour”) and immersing themselves in the ever so chic Parisian lifestyle. Well I did, and I nearly re-cut my fringe in a frenzy the night before to really get into character (cue Jane Birkin, Jeanne Damas, etcetera).

I won’t bore you with the details of how we got invited (off the street) to a penthouse terrace in the 7th Arr. (which over looked the area’s surroundings, Eiffel Tower and so on), and how we had a  security scare which had us locked at the top of the Arc de Triomphe.
However, you can take a peek below, because if you didn’t capture it, it never happened – riiieght!?

Final thoughts: Paris Ç’est Magnifique. x

roma.

Oh Roma, you magical beauty. I liked you, a lot.

Saturated with character and history,  Roma offers a mixture of serious and fun – the perfect balance for my curious eyes (cue textured walls, greenery and doorways a plenty).

From Trastevere we strolled, 68,227 steps to be exact.

(My) words can’t quite describe it, join in on our visual journey below.

“Let yourself be silently drawn by the stronger pull of what you really love.” – Rumi.
