Paris is always a good idea
Paris is always a good idea..
In case you need another reason to procrastinate, let's acknowledge the dreaminess that is The City of Love, Paree. I recently travelled to this romantic city for the second time and I was every bit satisfied and overwhelmed.
From the delightful pastries and macaron stores on every corner (I tried them all), the chic effortless-ness of the women (!) to the incredibly beautiful architecture, this city is all that it's cracked up to be and deserves it's sterling reputation.
If the more lavishly-appointed area's of shopping are on your agenda then you'll want to swan around the area's of St Germain, Rue Saint Honore and Avenue Montaigne. This is where you'll find Celine, Acne, Dior, Christian Louboutin.. (sigh)
For the more bargain-savvy, head to Rue de Rivoli, it's lined with multi-storey goodness like Forever 21, Sephora (it's on most shopping strips and I recommend going into all the stores in case you missed something from the last one), Zara and H&M.
It also goes without saying that you need to waltz down the Champs Elysees, the iconic avenue has plenty to offer in terms of shopping and entertainment, plus the gorgeous Arc de Triomphe is the pot-of-gold at the end.
