Paris Photo Diary Part 2
Paris Photo Diary Part 2
All week I’ve had the pleasure of watching Paris Fashion Week go down…from my phone…on Instagram. Let’s just saying I’m definitely jealous of all the lucky little boys and girls that get to see it IRL. Anyhow, I thought, what better day than today to publish Paris Photo Diary Part 2. After all is was Paris Fashion Week Couture when I was there end of January.
I know I told you babes a little bit about ago about this chicest Parisian brand I know Nour Hammour. They make the most stylish, detailed and fashion forward leather jackets and coats around, Parisian chic at its finest.

Ok..we all know I love Paris, blah blah blah. So I wanted to do something special for all my fashionista babes. Here is a quick “must see” guide to Paris of some of my favorite spots and areas.
where to start…?
- Angelina – Located on rue de Rivoli across from the famous tuilieries sits the beautiful Angelina. Angelina has been around since 1903 and for over a century the tearoom has built a reputation as a place of sophistication and indulgence. As soon as it opened, Angelina became the place to be among the Parisian aristocracy. Proust and Coco Chanel rubbed shoulders with the biggest names in fashion in Angelina’s salons. The interior, designed by the famous Belle Epoque architect Edouard-Jean Niermans, combines elegance, charm and refinement to create a sense of romanticism and poetry. Angelina is a tranquil, exquisite space, somewhere between serenity and indulgence.
- Cafe de Flore – The infamous Café de Flore is perched quaintly in the 6th arrondissement of Paris on the corner of the Boulevard Saint-Germain and the Rue St. Benoitand. Its ambient atmosphere, delicious dishes and it being the perfect place to lose yourself whilst watching the passers by. Packed day and night it is clear that Café de Flore is the hot spot and place to see, and be seen.
- Hotel Costes – Powdery velvets, the use of filtered lights, the typical scent, the energy in each detail. Located in one of the best shopping areas of Paris, Hotel Costes is a must must see. In fact every time I visit paris, I visit Hotel Costes restaurant and bar. Its absolutely beautiful inside with a dark romantic edge. I have never stayed at this hotel but the scenery and ambiance of the restaurant and bar is enough to know that this is one of the chicest and trendiest places in Paris.
- Tour Eiffel , Musee Louvre , Arc de Triomphe , Sacre Coeur , Notre Dame – It just wouldn’t be Paris without seeing the famous sites.
- Pont Neuf – is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris, France. Pont des Arts the famous Love Lock bridge is no longer filled with locks due to the damage the locks were causing to the bridge. However, Pont Neuf is filled with love locks…so this is a must see.
- Jardin des Tuileries – the most epic Parisian garden, next to the Gardens at Versailles. I recommend a stroll through both with your lover. Romance everywhere.
- Place Vendome – beautiful historic square north of the Tuileries. Gorgeous architecture, famous Parisian doors with all the famous designers and stores residing here. This is in the best but most expensive shopping area of Paris.
- Le Marais – Historic, charming, beautiful, an architectural dream. This neighborhood is like stepping into another place and time. Absolutely stunning.
I could really go on and on but I will leave you here. I will be back to Paris soon with more hot spots to see.
