Paris, Je T’aime!

Life

When I start to analyse my life and the opportunities that I have been presented with, I start to feel a wave of calm rushing over myself. I like to believe that I have persuaded my mind-set to become more proactive and because of this slight shift in my thinking I have been able to take the bull by the horns and control my chances. I say chance because at the end of the day, life is all about how we mould our chances or opportunities that are thrown at us – that’s all we can do. Some people like to call it luck that we are given and if that’s the case, I work bloody hard for my luck.

Paris

Adding to my blessings, I was recently able to travel to Paris with my mum to visit my dad whilst he was running a work course in the city. I quickly stopped off at the family home in the South-West of France and before I knew it I was on a plane, jet-setting to Paris-Orly. Once the on-flight panic attacks had settled, I began my decent into Paris. I’d never travelled elsewhere in France as I’ve spent most of my childhood summers in Bergerac, so this was an incredible experience for me. As a lover of fashion, this capital was the most crucial in the bunch – for obvious reasons.

Obviously, being a tourist in Paris I had to take part in all of the typical tourist activities – not that I was arguing, I was dead excited to see the Tour Eiffel, Champs Elysees, Arc De Triomphe, Notre Dame, The Louvre, The River Seine…you get the idea!

  1. Ah what would I do to get close to Paris. I had lived in England for a bit was alittle too young to travel on my own. Parents never cared to go there lol. I am happy you got to experience Paris. Btw…I have the same scarf as you. I haven’t worn mine yet waiting for it to get a bit chillier over where i live 🙂
