Where on Earth does one start? Just raaaaah. I've never been to a city that has one, males so suave and sophisticated in their attire, two, it's just so chilled, yet with this busy, urban vibe rustling underneath, and thirdly, drivers who are so crazy. Paris Fashion Week was just commencing as we boarded the Eurostar from Kings Cross (a station that is so beautiful within itself) and away we went. Arriving at the hotel, which was small and quirky, I can probably say I was already shopping around Paris by 3.30pm. Die hard shopper right here. We ended up walking around the beautiful monuments such as the Louvre, and Pont Des Arts, the famous lock bridge where hundreds of couples were at one with their partner we shall say. The Tuileries (huge long gardens by the Louvre) I think by far are one of my favourite parts of Paris- there were so many people my age, clothed in such cool outfits just chilling around the fountains in large groups, embracing a school night in the middle of city through drinks and laughter. Later on during that evening, we entered what I can only describe as a capacity of such thrill and excitement: an old-fashioned bookstore (as in those ones with the ladders running up the walls) I got far too excited in there. So I had to save myself from entering a literature-based illness and divulge into the French cuisine. Huge mistake- I am now 50 stone heavier. Why is French food soooo good!? After that, we meandered through the streets, soaking in the vibes of a
the relaxed city, and found our way back to the hotel (rather difficult, as the streets do look very similar) and I found myself watching EastEnders and Silk in the middle of Paris (hallelujah we found English channels) and having an early night, I got ready for Mom's birthday the next day.

Holllllla. So this weekend was so amazing- I went to Devon with my family to celebrate my parents birthday's in Burgh Island, and it was awesome! The hotel was 1930s inspired, with extreme art deco furniture everywhere, and like die hard Agatha Christie fans everywhere (in full 1930s dress) with me just rocking up in my air max like 'Yo, Poirot who?' There was also a murder mystery trial as well that took place, and we ended up winning the Champagne (kerchinnnnng). So all in all a most snazzy weekend by the sea. I've just got back today, after a long four and a half hour journey, and after the havoc of unpacking and re-packing, I am extremely excitedly say *squeals* that I am off to PARIS tomorrow! Rahhhhh! All being well I get WiFi (praise Jesus) I'll blog my Parisian experience when I'm out there! So farewell England, and Bonjour French Garçons!

So this blazer so totally isn't mine, in fact I don't have a clue who's it was- but it was of my favourite vintage finds from Islington Market, and was apparently from a local boys boarding school. Today myself and my friend Joe went for a drive to go and get coffee, in celebration of life just being so fabulous. To add to that we had 'Material Girl' by Madonna, on full blast whilst driving - dream. We plan to go to LFW in September, because after having seen all of the latest collections (specifically Ashish and Christopher Kane) I am just in lurrrrrv. Now I'm off to go and have an "It's-Not-Sunday-But-a-Wednesday Sunday Dinner," whilst watching To Kill a Mockingbird with Mom, and then I think a bike ride is long overdue! But of course, I'll be back for the Brits! (Four days until holiday-wahoooo)

Life's been pretty siiiick at the moment- today I spontaneously found myself decorating 42 pointe shoes in silver glitter for my forthcoming dance show- but I keep finding random speckles of glitter in my eyebrows. Hmm. Then tonight, I went out with the girls to celebrate Yas' birthday, so it's been a pretty sweet day. I am however hyping crazily for the next week. I'm off to a secret destination which I cannot reveal as it is a surprise for the Mothership's birthday, which she has no clue of where abouts (and the chances are she is probably reading this, so hi mom). But I'll reveal all soon. My leather LBD in the picture has served me proud for a good 4 years- and the jacket was one of my Grandma's which she gave to me (Thanks Grandma.) I literally shed a trail of glitter wherever I go. So all in all, today has been a very glittery day, and on that note, I am off to go and read in the bath, and hit Netflix! P.S Tomorrow I'll hit you with the low-down on my walk in wardrobe (ish) that has taken me like 2 days to do, and has involved heavy manoeuvring (grr). Goodnight!
