Paris is a feeling

It’s one of my favourite destinations in the entire world and a city that would take a lifetime to see.


You can't NOT be romantic about Paris.

I know, because I dragged Mr S there twice in one month.

It was freezing, I was wearing a mini dress, it started to rain… I didn't care.

Paris just sweeps me up in it's magical entanglements.

I think it fits the bill for almost any kind of traveler.

Whether you want to relax, explore, learn, feast… it's all there, waiting for you.




Understandably, planning a trip to Paris is hard.

Just when you think you’ve seen everything the city has to offer, you find new attractions, new cafés, or new markets to explore.

There are layers to this city — which is partially why I love it so much.

Whilst Paris might be a food mecca for anyone who loves to eat, that’s not to say that a good meal can be found everywhere in Paris, a lot of restaurants and bistros are merely tourist traps, serving underwhelming food with questionable service to match.

So you need to know where to go!


" I love coming to Paris for my fix of confit de canard or even just a good steak frites."



Cafés & Restaurants You Won't Want To Miss

L’ÉCLAIR DE GÉNIE

14 rue Pavée, 75004 Paris www.leclairdegenie.com


If you are interested in trying some of the aforementioned, new-generation éclairs, L’Éclair de Génie is the place for you. The name of this venue is a smart play on French words which translates to “a stroke of genius” in English, something which you won’t deny the moment you step foot on the premise.









LE SOUFFLÉ

36 rue Mont Thabor, 75001 Paris www.lesouffle.fr


The only thing on the menu at Le Soufflé is … soufflé. Their savoury menu consists of simple cheese soufflés to something more spectacular with chicken and mushroom sauce or even a soufflé with boeuf bourguignon.












Pierre Hermé

The macaron phase looked to be a fleeting one, but even I have fallen victim to these petite morsels of heaven. I once thought I had tried every possible flavour combination that could be squeezed into these coin-sized bites, and even thought my quest for the perfect macaron was over when I discovered Ladurée, but the macarons of Pierre Hermé will make you understand why he is considered the most creative and gifted pastry chef in Paris.
