This little blog has been on hold recently, life seems to have taken over a bit! But to be honest, I really haven't had that much to blog about. I got back from Paris late Monday evening, and since haven't been up to too much. Paris was definitely one of the best holidays that i've ever had. I loved the city so much (sorry NY, but you nothing like Paris!), the architecture, the culture, the sights. We were really lucky with the weather, with beautiful blue skies and hot, sunny weather each day. We had 5 days in the city, and so we had enough time to visit all of the major sites/buildings that we wanted, and it also meant that we could have some time to laze about in the parks after a long day of walking (I don't think i've ever walked so much). Thank God for their Metro's! We rented an apartment from airbnb, which I think was the best decision we made (hope you agree Alessio!), it was so much more relaxed than staying in a hotel, much more cosy and comfortable. Being in a typically Parisian building, it really felt like we were living like proper Parisians, even with a little balcony looking over a courtyard. If I ever venture to Europe again, i'll definitely take a look on airbnb, a lot more affordable than a hotel too! I would really recommend having a peek at their website if you're going away and unsure of where to stay. They also have a lot of apartments available in England, and even further afield in America.
Now, back to the beautiful city that is Paris. Everything about Paris I loved. The breakfasts were definitely my cup of tea, what more could you want than brioche or a croissant with jam, French butter (which seems to taste way better than ours) and a bowl of sweet hot chocolate?! I really, really loved the city, because of it's history, beautiful architecture, the symmetry. It almost felt like I was walking through a dream world when walking down the cobbled streets and past the rows of balconies filled with flowers. I could definitely see myself living in Paris, (only have to learn French first, ha!).
Sorry this is a bit of a short post, these are just some of my pictures from Paris, I have so many on my laptop (way too many to show). I'll have to do some more picture posts from the holiday, especially of our day in Versailles which was always destined to be pretty special as we sat on the double decker train (crazy, right?!), although I don't think i've ever seen a historical site so busy, at many points our view was blocked by a sea of arms throwing their cameras into the air in the hope of getting a picture. I'll post more about where we visited soon!
For some reason i've felt a little bit stressed today. I've got my first ever London fashion Week event tonight and am feeling very worried about what i'm wearing, whether it's too casual, not casual enough, if i'll look silly in a crowd of fashionable and important people, tripping over in front of everyone with my cocktail etc. But i'm sure (fingers crossed) it'll all be fine, I'm feeling the excitement!
I start my third year at University next week, and so my venture back down to Falmouth is imminent. I can't believe the summer is over already, and I really don't feel quite ready to go back to University yet! If you're starting your first year, hope you're enjoying the fresher's events so far, i've got a post with some tips/advice coming up!
Right, off to get some writing done, hair tamed and nails painted. And I promise i'll get back into my blogging this week, eek.
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
