LIFESTYLE | June in Paris


I'm back in Paris and with a very original (*cough*) post with never-seen-before (*cough cough*) places. No macarons involved.

I said goodbye to my little home of Northampton a couple weeks ago and came back where my French heart belong: Paris! If we set aside the horrendous heatwave that's been going on this past week, I'm glad to be there again and I've made the most of it by meeting up with friends and walking around my favourite parts of the city.
And yes, my favourite places happen to be full of tourists all year round. I can't help it though, it's so pretty!


Fun fact: I almost didn't post this photo because it's such a tourist shot haha. (Not that I have anything against tourists, it's just that you'd think that after all the time I've spent there, I would have gotten over the whole Notre Dame thing. Well, I haven't.)

These days in Paris have been glorious, the weather is beautiful and it's the perfect time to walk around the banks of the river and have an iced coffee. Until the heatwave hit us and the thirty-seven degrees made it impossible to breathe at all. 

From Notre Dame, it is an easy walk to the Louvre, my top favourite. I haven't had time to go inside yet this year, but I am definitely planning to go later in the summer. Cross the Seine, walk towards Châtelet and the never-ending Rue de Rivoli... And you'll find yourself in front of the infamous pyramid and the beautiful neo-classical buildings that surround it. You'll easily guess which one I'm more fond of!


When I'm on my own, I love sitting in a corner of the museum and read a book. Even though it's quite a crowded area, it's so vast that you don't find yourself stepping on other people or feeling too bothered by the noise. Just a charming place to hang out, really! 


On a side note, my friends and I went to the Olympic Games events held around the Seine last Friday, and it was rather cool. Swimmers dived in the river from the Alexandre III bridge, our new President played tennis and there was a giant colouring wall where you could colour the images of olympic sports and leave silly messages, because of course we'd do that. We are against LA for the organisation of the 2024 Olympic Games, and let me tell you: our event was awesome. Paris for 2024!

PS: I'm leaving for California in two days. Reunited with my boyfriend after being apart for six months. I'm all heart eyes emojis. This also means a lot of brand-new content for the blog - you've probably seen enough of Paris already. This is going to make quite a change!

What are your plans for the summer?

  1. I am actually going to France later this summer, but not Paris. South of France for a family vacation. And I have to admit I was disappointed that there were no macarons...

    1. The South of France is perfect for family vacations, much more than a busy city like Paris! Also sorry for the macarons, I'll try to do better next time haha. xx

  6. You're forgiven already, seeing the beautiful and historical buildings of Paris never gets old! I have the tendency of burying myself into a book too in crowded places, it soon becomes a background hum tbh! Aww high five to being in a long distance relationship too, I feel you sister, glad to hear you've been reunited!

    1. Exactly, when you're focussed on your book the crowds around just disappear and it makes a most wonderful, comforting background! Yeah long distance relationships aren't easy, but it's well worth it! xx

  7. Oh man this is so beautiful! I went to Paris not so long ago, but it was freezing, and I didn't have time to see half the things you did. It's so gorgeous, I want to go back now haha.
