A Little Trip to Paris

2/10/2015





Last week ended up being a complete whirlwind that I'm still getting over, but a very fun one indeed. On Monday morning before the sun had barely even risen Suzie, Lucy, Tijan and I were whisked away to Paris for the day with the French beauty subscription box service, My Little Box. We were invited along for a tour of the office and after a quick sit down for brunch and a fierce instagramming session we had a good nose around their beautiful space which, if I had to describe in just one word would be utterly 'Pinterestable'.

From one food stop to the next we headed over to Buvette in the ninth arrondissement were I indulged in a plate of Croque-Forestier, a melt in the mouth cheese, bread and mushroom explosion that I won't be forgetting in a while. Afterwards we made a stop at Oh My Cream, a gorgeous beauty boutique dedicated entirely to skincare with the likes of Sunday Riley, Antipodes, REN and Aurelia lining the shelves. We had a workshop session on devising the perfect routine - aka an hour of trying out as many products as possible that I'd always wanted to get my hands on, and all left with a very big mental shopping list.

Our last hour in the city was spent doing a quick run of the pharmacies - no time to stop off as Sephora this time around unfortunately but I did manage to stock up on a year's worth of Bioderma! Before I knew it we were heading back to Le Gare du Nord and hopping on the train to London again. It was a fleeting visit but a very special one and I also vlogged the day - see below! Paris, you were beautiful as always and I miss you already!
