So as you maybe saw, I was very inactive the last few weeks. I was in Paris, to get better in French and to enjoy the city before my finals and stayed with the language school of EF, which is a very famous language school all over the world. I’ve had school either in the morning or in the afternoon, discovered Paris a little more (I’ve already known Paris pretty well) and of course I did some shopping. In the middle of my first werk my boyfriend surprised me with very very good news: he was coming to Paris for the weekend! Means I could stay in a lovely hotel with him and just do all the cliché things in Paris: the kiss under the Eiffel Tower, the déjeuner (lunch) at Ladurée and lots of shopping! We’ve had a very lovely time there and I’d love to explore Paris again with him ♡
Anyway, enough about romance, I bet you are super excited about what I bought. First of all you should all know that I went a little crazy in Paris. I bought so much, not just because I wanted it, but also because of the prices!!! It is crazy how expensive Zurich is compared to Paris! So that’s one of the reasons why I went a little crazy, but also because they have soooo many lovely things in Paris, I just couldn’t resist… Alors, here we go:
After so many times I’ve looked at this bag, I finally got it at Galleries Lafayette. The lovely Falabella Mini bag by Stella McCartney. I hesitated a little when I saw it, because it’s very expensive for what it is. The leather is not real and it’s just the name that costs so much. After thinking about it for a few days, I just got it because I knew I’d regret it if I didn’t. I went for the Falabella Mini Tote, the perfect size for short girls like me. It holds a lot and is very handy for shopping, going out and daily life, + it looks super cool with boyfriend jeans.
One of the things I also got when I was with my boyfriend is this lovely Chanel brooch. I was dreaming of a brooch for so long and I was just waiting to find the perfect one – and I found it in Paris! 🙂 Isn’t it just beautiful? I chose a solid silver Chanel logo brooch, just because I’ll be wearing it a lot and I don’t want any pearls or stones to break off. It also has different colours, depending on the light to shine in.
So that’s it for the Fashion-part. I didn’t really buy a lot of other clothes, since I don’t need it. I alson got two tank-tops by American Apparell and a simple grey sweater by & other stories. At Sephora I went a little crazy, they have so many makeup brands that we don’t have here in Switzerland, like Too Faced, Bare Minerals and Benefit. So I got a few things for my makeup table:
– TooFaced Melted Lipgloss in Fuchsia. It’s a very bright color and lasts about 4 hours
– BareSkin Foundation by Bare Minerals, it’s so light and perfect for summer and the Mineral Veil Powder for the finish
– Ooh La Lift eye brightener by Benefit to brighten up my dark circles (lack of nerves lol)
– Maroccan Tea Hand cream by & other stories – seriously the best hand cream EVER!
So that’s it, over all I was happy to stay in Paris but I also missed Zurich so much. Swiss people are so much nicer and have more respect (like in the public transports and on the streets). Paris is a wonderful city, beautiful architecture and lovely boutiques, but after all my heart belongs to Zurich!
