I'm Off To Paris To.......

This time we are flying over to Paris.

Up and away

To spend time with our lovely youngest daughter, Charlotte, who is more French than she is English after living there for over 4 years. I would kill for that hair!

To stay in her lovely little town with the most exquisite medieval part to it and one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in

To visit Brocantes in strange little places taking away all the items the French appear not to want anymore.

To wander around the flea markets, oozing with gorgeous vintage finds. This time there is Antiquites Brocante at Place de la Bastille

To see the big white domes of Sacre Coeur against a clear blue May sky - nothing quite like it in my book

To sit outside stylish Parisian cafes - people watching and sipping coffee, the likes of which only the French can make.

To lick the windows of Laduree, Maison du Chocolat, Fauchon well anywhere that sells food I suppose. Buying little tasty items just to get the boxes and bags

To shop until I DROP and see the stunning vitrines - yes their shop windows are just like glass cabinets, full of fabulous items and they do the best styling in the world

In fact Paris is so good I could eat it.
I will be reporting daily - watch this space.

I wish you a wonderful time in Paris with your daughter. I've travelled across France but never been in the "city of love". I hope Naomi and I can visit Paris one day, I always wanted to.
Have a nice trip!

You daughter is a stunner Di, at first glance she reminded me of Christine out of Phantom of the Opera! ;)
