A LITTLE GUIDE: A Weekend In Paris

A LITTLE FIND - A Visual Guide to - A weekend in Paris - Merci Store

I LOVE Paris. In fact, I think I could actually live there... Which is a big statement to make, coming from a dedicated London girl like myself.

Maybe it's the language or the architecture, the food or the wine, the abundance of history or the Parisian style - Even on a Monday, Paris is just so completely charming.

If you are daydreaming of booking a trip to Paris or need some ideas for a European city break. Here is my visual guide to give you a little inspiration of where to shop, eat & drink in the city of Love... Enjoy!

Wondering why Parisians always seem to look so effortlessly chic? It's because they shop at stores like The Broken Arm.

Sezane is an Instagram paradise - colour, humour, merch and a vintage photo booth to capture those precious moments with your mates, plus they have a pretty insane shoe collection.

Regardless of whether stationary is your thing, I dare you to try and leave Papier Tigre without buying a notebook.

Ceramic heaven at Les Grands Voisins, once a hospital that has now been transformed into a cultural centre with independent shops and craft beers.

One part homewares boutique, one part cafe (with cookies so delicious, I had one of each flavour)! The peaceful environment is the perfect place to unwind (and take some goodies home to style up your kitchen) O/HP/E.

Cookie & tea time at O/HP/E and creamy broccoli soup with my daily dose of caffeine at The Broken Arm (yes, they have a cafe too)!

You cannot go to Paris without stopping for a coffee at The Boot Cafe - it's tiny, it's quaint, it's made with love (and it'll look great on your Instagram feed).

Gothic decor, low lighting, a courtyard to die for, excellent Thai food and a life-size ostrich, I present to you, Bambou.

The service is impeccable and the food on point.
