Top Five Friday ~ From Paris with Love!! 

Happy Friday y’all, I am so glad to be here in Paris enjoying the city and embracing everything French. Though it’s not an entirely leisure visit we decided to add in some fun into our day. It’s not everyday you hop on a plane and find yourself in Paris especially during summer as it can be quite expensive.

Last Friday I mentioned how I am working to revive this blog and post more often than not. Currently Monday’s {You’re the Star link party} and Friday {Top Five Friday} seems to be the only days I can pull out content. That’s fine by me as it’s better than no content at all if I want this blog to continue ticking over.

Top Five Friday ~ From Paris with Love 

As mentioned, I am currently in Paris to firstly explore the city and its secrets then venture off to a wedding tomorrow. But before we do that, here are the Top Five Friday items I wanted to share.

Exploring Paris, we flew to Paris last night so we can spend all day today exploring the love city. We want to see so much but also have time to relax, first stop is the Louvre Museum. We have so much on our list because it’s my friend’s first time and my fourth.

Paris with Love

Wedding in a Castle, tomorrow’s wedding will be held in a castle just outside Paris. Follow me on Instagram where I will be sharing sneak picks of the location and the beautiful castle. I am going as my besties plus 1 to her friend’s wedding who is also my friend{ish}.

Last weekend my sister and I went to London to review the afternoon tea menu at Chi Kitchen. We had such an amazing time and grateful for the opportunity to taste the exquisite menu. Until recently I didn’t know that the executive chef at this restaurant is 2014 Master Chef winner Ping Coombes.


Dating again, so I finally too the plunge and started dating again. It was not an easy decision for me, I was in a 10-year relationship which broke down. Learning to love, to trust and be me again with someone new wasn’t an easy process. But I am glad to say, I am taking it one day at it take but also going with the wind. I forgot just how awesome the honeymoon phase can be but also how scary and fragile it can leave you.

Continuing on with the dating theme, for our latest date he cooked me Paella which was out of this world. He looks to cook so much and has brought out the domestic {baking} goddess in me. He doesn’t like to bake and I am not that good a cook but love to bake. We compliment each other in more ways than one, it’s truly refreshing to date someone like him.

Until next time, from Paris with love.
