  1. Looks like you had a super lovely time, and why wouldn’t you?! The multi-coloured street is gorgeous and I do love a blurry lights photo. Very romantic way to start the new year, I’m sure it’ll be a good omen 🙂

  2. What a great post and blog! I just discovered the site a couple of days ago and am loving it. The blue and yellow is a fab combination and you have inspired me to be braver as I move to a new home and update my wardrobe. Thanks and keep up the great work!

  3. Headed to Paris in the next month! Would you mind sharing the link to the Air BnB apartment you rented?

  4. Happy new year! Everything looks fabulous 🙂 I was in Paris last year and I loved everything about the city..ok, except that in some places the smell was awful. A little bit like a piss.

  5. Clarins Spa looks ahhhhhmazing !!!! I have never been to Paris. Clearly that needs remedied 😉

  6. Such a beautiful post! I love Paris so much I literally got goosebumps just now seeing your photos. I now feel totally inspired to go out and shoot some of my town (Miami) for my own blog. Happy New Year! 🙂
