Sister’s Bridal Shower

Words are just words and they cannot express enough the love of a sister. More importantly when sharing big (huge) highlighting life moments such as a bridal shower. I love my Fofi to pieces and so grateful to have her in my life. As for her bridal shower, this bride-to-be had a vision and we {along with Anila and Lika) achieved every little detail. It was so much work but we did it! Check out the eye candy and feast your eyes…

Magical Montmartre

The most adorable and magical section of Paris was Montmartre for me! I loved it and I would go there again in a heartbeat. If you are into art and delicious food, this is the part of Paris you have to check out. I loved the cobbled stones and the little narrow streets. Seriously, can I just sit in the middle of the street and get lost? Yes please (that doesn’t make sense I know)! Montmartre is located in the northern part of Paris and is on a hill. I suggest wearing comfortable shoes to walk around a lot especially on the cobblestone streets.

Amazing French Food:

La Mere Catherine – If you want to experience french cuisine, go to this restaurant. I tried escargot (snails) and duck l’orange followed with delicious red wine. This is all from my memory but I remember having the complete five course meal which also consisted of cheese and a tart desert with an espresso at the end. Really amazing food hands down!!

Overlooking Paris

Is it Friday yet? What a long week it has been. I was scrolling through my many photos of Paris and I wish I could share them all, but I had to share this one. Overlooking Paris everything seems so calm and sound. Behind me is the the Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica. It was opened to the public in 1914.

Beautiful, isn’t it! Have you been? I’d love to hear about it! Again as I’ve mentioned before I’m not a religious person, but the architecture of churches really get to me. Such a presence and full of wonder. It leaves me with a million questions yet brings me such peace. If you’re ever in Paris, it’s a must see attraction! It’s open from 6:00 am – 10:30 p.m. It’s really an amazing view and people just sit by the steps to relax. Once you’re up there, walk over to the streets of Montmartre which I’ll talk about on an upcoming post.
