2016 | A Parisian Weekend Getaway

It has been 2 weeks since classes have started up again and I’m just getting back into the swing of things.  What better way to de-stress than a long weekend in Paris with some girlfriends filled with shopping, wine, and food.

We stayed in the Les Marais district in Paris, a short stroll to Notre Dame.  The SOHO of Paris, which is filled with cafés and boutique shops, was the perfect home base for us 4 girls to celebrate a birthday!

Although we did hit up some of the touristy spots on our wandering around, we explored the shopping and foodie scenes more.  On our 2nd night we booked a dinner experience through EatWith, a site where you can book dining experiences with chefs in the comfort of their homes.  The 4 of us spent the evening being wined and dined by Masterchef Jean Yves along with 7 other strangers.  I’ve written a foodie post about my experience here!

Shopping wise, I’ve finally picked up my first Longchamp bag, as well as some bits and pieces from Cos, Massimo Dutti, and Oysho.

Check out my weekend highlights below!
