Life in Paris: Day 3 (shopping, shopping, shopping)
Saturday, March 31st
Today was all about shopping. Shopping, shopping, shopping Geez… I can’t believe we come to one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and the first thing we think of is to shop. BUT, going to the biggest Sephora in the world had to be on my bucket list! We headed to Champs-Elysees to check out makeup heaven.
When we walked into the store, it was like a club in there with half of the store dancing and people playing drums! It was insane! The store was jammed with people- literally hundreds of people crammed in like sardines. We bought some new goodies (which we could have got at home, but I just wanted to say I bought makeup goodies in Paris ) including Too Faced glitters, Lancome Lipsticks, and a new perfume. I’ll do a haul video later showing you all the makeup/beauty goodies I’ve bought here so far
We also stopped in Zara – possibly our fav store here! It’s very reasonably priced and they have really nice clothing and fun jewelry. I bought a gorgeous leather jacket there…kind of a creamy color that looks aged, love it! (was a great price too) Down the street from Champs Elysses is the Arc de Triomphe- not sure of the history behind it yet, but it was beautiful!
This is me and my sweet friend Nina- she has been SO sweet and helpful as we fumbled our way through a new country. Not sure what we would have done without her.
When we asked for suggestions on things to do in Paris, we got TONS of you saying to try Laduree macaroons. So we went to the one near our shopping, and stood in line for AN HOUR! On the upside…these little cookies were AMAZING! I swear they dropped down from heaven- in lots of fun little colors too I’ll do a post later on how amazing these cookies are. I’m not usually a foodie, but these cookies are worth all the hype. SO yummy.
Here’s the inside of the store- it’s very ornate and beautiful.
Alrighty, off to bed as tomorrow is my last day before school! More on that later
