Linda and I took the Eurostar to Paris on Thursday night. We felt like we were already on holiday at St Pancras - the lego Christmas tree was fab and there was a great live band playing.
We went to visit Hellie in her new home in Suresnes, Paris.
Hellie hand embroidered personal guest towels. How gorgeous. Linda's was in red but she used it before I could take a pic!
We did some local shopping for breakfast. La Jolie Pause bar is on the corner of Hellie's street and popular it is too.
The appartment is lovely and we had breakfast by the French windows.
The view from the back.
Time for another petit dejeuner.
Paris is getting ready for Christmas - even the patisserie was festive.
We chose some gateaux to take home.
Lovely lunch with Robbie and Hellie in Versailles.
This shop was a real find. Can you believe we spent nearly two hours in here trying on some fab gear. Hellie bought a coat, Linda bought a beautiful blouse and I bought a sequin top. Chinemachine, 1oo Rue des Martyrs, 75018, Paris. Check out their blog http://www.chinemachinevintage.com/blog/
We climbed the steps to Sacre Coeur and looked over Paris by night.
Every hour, on the hour, after dark, the Eiffel tower is lit up with flashing fairy lights for 5 minutes.
It was so pretty and a magical moment.
