Paul's Guide to Paris

March 21, 2018


I have always loved Paris. I make an effort to get there a few times each year, and every time I visit I fall in love with it all over again! I have a few favourite places that I pop into whenever I'm there, all of which I've shared below!




L'Hotel is nestled right in the centre of Paris where you've got easy access to everything you'll want to see. The rooms are big and cosy and it doesn't have the feel of a chain hotel because each room is completely different. To top it off they have an amazing restaurant so if you're feeling lazy and can't be bothered going out, you won't have to!





Robert et Louise is where you'll want to head for the best steak in Paris. They char your steak over an open fire - nab a seat with a view so you can watch! They also do hands down the best goose fat potatoes I've ever eaten. You can't miss this place, it's gold!




I can't go to Paris without stopping in at Merci Paris. They have mens and womenswear, but what I really come here is for the interiors and homeware. They have beautiful bedding and table settings, and some of the most amazing furniture. When it comes to interior design I like quite a modern look and I love having a few really quirky pieces to keep things exciting. Last time I visited Merci I spotted this crazy chair and fell in love with it!



Enjoy the View:


With all of the eating I do when I visit Paris, (not to mention enjoying some French wine!) I try to make sure I fit in a workout when I'm there to balance things out. I like heading to Jardin des Tuileries for a run first thing, before the tourists arrive. The view makes the run much easier!




This is an obvious one but it would be criminal if I didn't include the Musee du Louvre. I'm always looking for inspiration for bags, whether that be in shape, colour, or texture, and I always find that here. The architecture alone is incredible let alone the art itself. 



Most Instagrammable:


You will have seen this spot on Instagram, and for good reason! The Les Deux Plateaux (or Colonnes de Buren as known by most people) is an art installation created by French artist Daniel Buren. It's a little controversial but I love it. Definitely worth a visit.
