So, our last full day in Paris...sad times.
We started the day by meeting up with my sister's friend Marie, who lives in Paris, at the pyramids. She gave us a mini tour of the city, and we had lunch at the infamous Ladurée! I was so so so excited to go, as I had never been before, but had heard ALL about it. Marie had recommended the omelette from there, so I went ahead and ordered an omelette and fries. It was so good, and the fries were yum, but the bit that I was most excited about was still to come...DESSERT! Of course, we had to order the macarons. We got a selection of 4 mini macarons, in orange blossom, strawberry and mint, salted caramel and violet and blackberry. The mini ones were more than enough as they were so sweet, I kinda just wanted to try the flavours more than anything. My favourite was the violet and blackberry flavour, closely followed by strawberry and mint. Both were actually quite refreshing after trying the salted caramel one, which was really nice, but so. so. sweet.
After, Marie took us shopping in some very expensive shops...e.g. Hermes, YSL, Christian Louboutin etc. And by 'shopping', I mean drooling at the amazing pieces in the shops, then crying a little inside when I looked at the price tag.
Then after Marie left, my sister and I went vintage shopping, the part of the trip I was most excited about. I will do a whole separate post about vintage shopping in Paris, so more on that next time...
And I'm sure you know how the day ended...dinner, then dessert. Oh my, the dessert. I swear, I must've eaten more dessert than anything else in Paris, it's just so damn good.
Vintage post soon!
