Musée L’orangerie

Hey guys, it’s been a minute. I’m finally a little less tired after finishing my degree to get back into the swing of blogging. Taking you back to April and our last day in Paris, exploring Monet’s water lilies. I’ve always wanted to see more of Monet’s work and managed to find some time on our last day to see the beautiful works of art. Musee L’orangerie houses the eight of Monet’s water lilies, in two oval rooms interconnecting right in the middle. Supposedly to Claude’s specifications. The lilies are placed this way for the viewers to experience the natural cycle of nature. The beautiful rippling water, the delicate flowers. I had my favourites and loved moving around the space.

voyager en solo

although I’ve never travelled alone, I think I could quite easily. During this Parisian stay, I did find myself alone for a decent amount. Travelling around a city that you can’t really speak the language of, navigating the streets and cultural customs. I found it relaxing. If you’ve read my blog you will know that I’ve been to Paris a few times and felt comfortable being alone in the city, practising my French to waiters and strangers. Walking through the neighbourhood where Hayden and I used to live when we last visited made me happy. Seeing L’Escargot on Rue Montorgueil where I made Hayden try snails for the first time. It was strange to know a city that is in a different country, as though it was your own. I was out solo exploring while Hayden slept after his Marathon. I went to find him the best pastries in Paris. I chose the Patisserie Stohrer, which is considered the oldest in Paris. I returned home with Poisson de Massepain, Cafe Eclair and a Paris Brest. All were delicious and the kind of pastries we were looking for this whole trip. I organized a photo shoot while Hayden was running with a photographer that I had never met before and just went to the location, did the shoot and that was it. I wasn’t frightened, or unsure I just knew that I wanted to experience this city and to meet new people and explore is the best way to do so.

Yellow Palm Trees

Yesterday I came back from my four day adventure in Paris. The weather was amazing and about 30 degrees which meant that I could fully commit to the holiday outfit look. DSCN0224

This palm top is a high-low but I love it tucked in, gives me a bit more of a shape. I wore this look around Disney Paris on one of the hotter days. My Camo Converse are the most comfortable choice for the day, I wore them the whole trip.

DSCN0227DSCN0226The stone cuff is a nice detail for me making the whole look more tribal. The ring and the layered necklace are both from Naf Naf. Which was one of my favourite brands when I was younger. We stopped into the Champs Elysees store and picked them up.
