Paris Day One and Two: Settling In and the Louvre

Hello and welcome to the beginning of my Paris posts!! 
I couldn't wait any longer to start these posts so here we go! 

Day One in Paris was mostly travelling. We had an evening flight so didn't get into Paris until around 9pm. We then had to catch a train to our area and find our apartment. Which included trying to figure out how to get inside it... Finally we made it and awaiting us was a stylish, open planned studio apartment. It was lush! The living space was big and open with the kitchen just around the corner and the bedroom divided by sliding doors. We made it to the apartment around 10pm, so it was too late to do any food shopping, instead we spotted a handy Mcdonalds restaurant on the main street next to our apartment. So we decided to venture out and pick up some grub. I was so excited to try out my Francais for the first time, I had it all planned out in my head.. Go to the counter, begin my sentence... But of course she was American and jumped straight into speaking English... Thanks a lot -_- 
 Bon appetite!

After our 5 star meal we slept. The next day we met someone from the apartment company to sign some forms and then got ready for the day ahead. Tourist Attraction One: the Louvre... Here are a few pics from our day out.
 Our first meal out!


First post over! Short and sweet I know but to be honest I didn't take a ridiculously large amount of photos while in Paris!! Especially not on my Nikon. Just an FYI, these photos are from my Nikon camera and my phone. So that's why there is quality variations. Hope you enjoyed the photos none the less and look out for my next post!!
Lots of Love!!

Post From The Past (13-12-14)

I'm so desperate to write right now I'm using Facebook Notes to write this at Tom's because I can't access my blogger account at his. I feel like I haven't written in ages. I hate it when I don't write in a while. Last week between the dates of Thursday 4th December and Monday 8th December me and Tom were in Paris, the city of love. We went for our 1st year anniversary together and it was perfect. We stayed in such a nice open apartment which was right in the center of Paris. It was so nice heading out for a walk somewhere, jumping on the metro to explore Paris. We went up the Eiffel Tower, went underground in the Louvre, climbed up the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dam, and ate out almost every day. A long weekend away was the perfect amount of time for the perfect holiday. 

But now we are back, and I was thrown straight back into work with 6 shifts in 4 days! Today has been my first day off since I got back from Paris, I woke up 11.30am which was nice and late for me and now I'm sitting typing this before I get ready for my busy day ahead. Tonight myself, Tom and Rose are catching a Megabus to Bristol. There we're going to meet Agnese, Ruba and Reem and head to motion later in the night. Talk about a night out!! I'm so excited, not only have I brought all my closest friends together to go Motion, but we all literally haven't seen each other in months. Agnese living in London now, I haven't seen her since Halloween. Ruba and Reem living in Bristol whome I haven't seen since some point in the summer!!!! On top of all that the DJs playing in Motion are two I've really wanted to see. Detroit Swindle and Tensnake. I'm so excited for tonight and so glad I'm going to be spending it which my closest friends and amazing boyfriend. 

I guess this post is just a chance to write whats been going on, the thought of waiting until Monday before I can sit down and do a proper blog post made me sad, so I thought I would take this day off as a chance to write something. Next week hopefully I'll be able to start on my Paris blog posts, I went through 2 rolls of 36 frame films, took 3 instant photos and took just under 100 on my DSLR. I also want to make a blog post out of tonight, and I want to upload my mobile photos into a blog post. So I should be a busy blogging bee hopefully!

Can I just say on top of all this, I want all of you to check out my bestest friend, Aggie's blog: http://war-peace-love.blogspot.co.uk
Her photography is amazing and the way she writes is so lovely! I think she deserves way more views than she gets at the moment so check it out :*

Little Dragon (London)

Hello my lovelies! Today's post is going to include lots of videos and a few pictures, all from my phone. Last Thursday me and Tom left early to catch a coach to London. We arrived in London around half 1 found our hotel and then went to explore the area a bit. That evening we headed to Brixton to see Little Dragon perform in the O2 Academy. I wasn't too sure what to expect as it wasn't really the kind of thing me and Tom usually go to, but it was so so good and everything I usually want from a night out! 

Little Dragon were amazing. Yukimi's voice sounds exactly the same as on the tracks and the music live was even better! It was so electro and techy. Towards the end Yukimi even went off the stage to let the band smash out a techno set, it was amazing! Anyone who hasn't heard of Little Dragon truly needs to look up their music. I first fell in love with them after hearing their album called 'Little Dragon' which is more instrumental and chilled, but I love where their music is going in their new album 'Nabuma Rubberband'.
Here are some videos I took throughout the night, all 15 seconds long because I have to edit them through Instagram or they play horizontally! Doh!

Take care and Happy 1st of December!!!
