Hi everyone! Today we're continuing my recap of PARIS! There were so many amazing restaurants that I legit gained about 6-7 pounds. I wish I was over exaggerating but I'm not. My work dresses don't fit right. Depressing but the food was totally worth it. French food is just mouth watering, completely satisfying and worth every calorie. I'm not over selling it. Also, I think there's like the most Michelin restaurants in Paris. I never even knew what Michelin was until my boyfriend started taking me to all these delicious spots. Below are a few suggestions. E N J O Y!

Try these:
1.Les Orchidées: We had the bolognese cappuccino, confited tomatoes with origan and the roasted cod with soya butter
2. L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon Saint Germain We've had Robuchon before in Tokyo and again in London so we're pretty familiar with the menu. Recommended: LA LANGOUSTINE in ravioli truffled with stewed green cabbage, THE BLACK COD marinated in miso, crunchy cucumber on a cream of smoked eggplant and THE LAMB OF MILK in chops with the flower of thyme
3. Le Cinq (@ the Four Seasons) French gastronomical cuisine. This one is 3 stars so it is a little pricier. They do offer different tasting menus too but those have limited selections. Try: steamed line cod fish with truffled potatoes and surprisingly the grilled and glazed pigeon.
4. L’Avant Comptoir Paris by Mouth. This restaurant was so extremely fun! It's super small and hard to get reservations. I saw a lot of people just stand at the bar and eat. It's a great local tapas spot where you get a taste of everything. There menus are on the ceiling and the have literally a MOUNTAIN of butter for their customers. We ordered way too many items but everything tasted so good so I don't think you can go wrong there.

Besides seeing all the amazing monuments in Paris that everyone dreams of seeing, the food adventure was just as enjoyable. I've never had so many amuse-bouches (single, bite-sized hors d'oeuvres) before in my life lol and I don't mind it at all. So let's say you pay for like a 3 or 5 course meal, you always end up getting like 2 extra dishes. While I was in Paris, I literally cleaned every single dish off. If I could like it without being judged, I would have.

Thanks for following me on my recap. Next up. London!

Hi everyone! I'm back from my trip from Paris and London. I had the most amazing time EVER IN LIFE. It was my first time visiting and there was a lot of planning and research so I wanted to quickly give you tips and a list of some things we did while we were there. Enjoy!

Some things to do:

Eiffel Tower: Trocadero Trust me. You see the beautiful Eiffel Tower almost everywhere you go in Paris. If you want the really good view of it, definitely check out Trocadero. I had to do some searching to find this spot so I wanted to make it easier on anyone that's going. :)

Lock Bridge: Pont des Arts Since the bridge was replaced, they do the locks here. HINT. Bring your own lock so people there don't try to scam you lol.

Jardin du Palais Royal: The Royal Garden We didn't get any tickets for this. We went to explore the garden. We went in March so it wasn't in full bloom yet but still nonetheless, extremely beautiful.

Louvre: Louvre Most people go straight to the museum to get the tickets but there's usually a really long line just to get in. There's a "secret" entrance at the Carousel du Louvre where no one goes so there's no line. I think if you buy online or through the hotel it's a little more expensive.

We went mid-March so it was still pretty cold in Paris. Definitely check the weather and pack layers. A few things I learned there:

1. So much people watching in Paris - it's awesome
2. Smoking everywhere, you can't run from it
3. I love that there is a cafe literally everywhere so coffee lovers are literally in heaven
4. There's a ton of scammers on the walk towards the Eiffel Tower so just avoid them
5. Bring scarves. Paris street style is on point

Next couple posts will cover food and some restaurants we tried and then on to London!
