Good Morning Paris

Oh Paris.. I miss you already. 

Jord and I got the opportunity to go there for fashion week and spend one lucky week in this beautiful city. From its romance, to the historic beauty and artistic atmosphere, I fell in love with all it has to offer.

If you are ever traveling to Paris, I strongly suggest you take a day to wander the city by yourself. I know that may not sound like something you'd want to while in the most popular, beautiful, romantic city in the world... but trust me, it was the best day I've ever had. To walk the small streets and be surrounded by the majestic buildings and pretty architecture, and watch everyone from locals to tourists as they go about there day, was truly the perfect afternoon.

After wandering through streets, and finding markets in Marais (my favorite area) I met with a friend for lunch at a cute (Australian inspired... of course) cafe, called Season.  I always use Yelp and HappyCow to find spots with good vegan options when I am on my own time traveling. This cute lunch spot had bowls, toasts, lattes, and juices.. All I need in my life. Seriously. I got the 'little bit of everything plate' (don't know if it was actually called that, but it should be) that had avocado toast, and a mini acai bowl with an almond milk latte. Now thats my idea of a perfect brunch!

After I hit up another healthy cafe by myself (its pretty much my favorite thing to do.. ever) called Wild and the Moon. Right when I read the name on Yelp, I knew it had to be a good one. This place was my favorite. I sat here, with my charcoal latte (omg, so unreal), and wrote a lot. I love writing, and sometimes forget how much it inspires me creatively, so it was nice to sit back for a couple hours and do this. I chatted with the barista, and herd her story, and then mostly just observed the people around me. The people of Paris were so elegant even when they were in a rush. They seemed happy to be there, and thats the energy that you want to be around when experiencing a new place. I can't say enough how enjoyable this day was.

My last day in Paris consisted of being surrounded by Super models and Jane Fonda.. Oh AND Helen Mirren. Like ummmm... COOL.

Being backstage at the Loreal Show surrounded by such empowering, beautiful, confident women was truly inspiring, and getting to sit front row and watch them kill it on that runway was so friken awesome.

After Jordan finished shooting for Loreal, we explored the city at night and went towards the Eiffel Tower to watch the lights that go off every hour (it may be touristy, but that's for a reason...it is pure magic)
