PHOTO DIARY | Bonjour, Paris - Day 2



Our second day was pretty chill. And by that, I mean, we kind of slept in and didn't get to do much. Was suppose to check out The Louvre early in the morning. Clearly didn't happen haha so we decided to go to the Catacombs of Paris instead. Such a huge line up when we got there. The average time was 1.5-2 hours, and they weren't exaggerating! Literally waited for an hour and a half. Super worth it!! I've yet to watch the movie about the Catacombs - which made me feel excited about checking this place out. It's definitely the highlight of our day though. Very interesting if you think about it, but it's really cool to be underground looking at skulls and bones of dead people. Our only mistake was we should've went later in the afternoon because they close at I believe 8pm. By the time we got out of there and walked to the Panthéon and Notre Dame Cathedral, they were already closed. Hence, the limited amount of photos for this post. My sis and I were both still pretty exhausted from the day before, so we walked around the Latin Quarter, bought souvenirs, and had dinner at this restaurant called Hippopotamus.

PHOTO DIARY | Bonjour, Paris - Day 1



Back in April, I did a trip out to Montreal for a few days (see here) and as you know, I don't speak French at all. Most people in the city speak English as well so that wasn't a huge problem for me. Until our sudden trip to Paris, the City of Love.. or City of Lights..? Whatever you want to associate it with. You can just imagine my struggles when my sister and I flew out to France. To our luck, she had taken French during high school so she knows and can understand basic conversations.  Still wasn't enough, but we manage to make it through, didn't we?

Our very first day was pretty hectic and exhausting, because we arrived early morning and had to get going after settling in to the apartment. Obviously we did get some sleep during the flight, but y'all know how uncomfortable the seats are! Especially if you're only on economy. So 7-8hrs travel time..  Plus time difference.. Not so good.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful (NOT Covergirl)




I know. So cheesy, right? I added the "NOT Covergirl" part, because it's the brand's slogan. Don't want y'all assuming it's a beauty post. Very, very appropriate though. This is one of the easiest and most comfortable item in my closet. Not only it looks like a beach cover-up, but can also be worn as a dress during the hot weather. Like killing two birds with one stone! How very wise of me.. Anyway, bought this piece at Winners a month ago and I am in love. Wore it the day after it was purchased, hand washed it right after, and packed it in my suitcase to bring to my trip to Paris (which I will be posting very soon). I am again tempted to wear it. I swear I have more clothes!
