Paris Is Always A Good Idea

I mentioned in my last post one of my goals for this year is to go to Paris with one of my best friends Harri  in a few months time. Neither of us has been to Paris before and we are both quite very very excited.

As neither of us have been before I wondered if any of my lovely readers could help with recommendations on places to visit hidden gems, beauty/fashion related places or general touristy places. I would also be interested in any recommendations on places to stay? Any recommendations would be great and much appreciated.

 We have a few things in mind......

Happy reading,stay pretty
