From Paris to Rome.

This is our last day before we leave for Rome.
How I miss Paris now already. I wish I was still there!
Before I begin, here is a pretty one-piece short jumpsuit I received from The Friday Best.
Oh my god, I love it!
It’s super comfortable and I think I’m going to head out in it tomorrow. :p
You can throw on a belt if you want, but I like it baggy like that. Looks cute! Heh.

Let me start the Europe trip with our Looks of the Day pictures!

We visited Galleries LaFayette, a big shopping area with a lot of “serious brands”.
A and I call huge labels “serious brands” because one needs to be very serious when you’re shopping from these brands.
Hahaha!
To be honest, serious brands shopping for ONE WHOLE DAY can be really tiring and boring.
But something you girls might be interested in is the LongChamp store in there.
It’s near the main entrance and there is always a loooonnnngggg line of tourists waiting to go in!
More interestingly, all the tourists are Asians.
I don’t know why we like LongChamp so much, but I think the stuff there are really much cheaper. :)

There is a huge Apple store nearby too!

I also saw these super pretty Coke metal bottles in the mall.
Pretty in pink and white!
I’m instantly swept away when I saw it!
Although it’s Diet Coke (which I dislike), I bought it anyway. :p

And yes we brought the clean bottles back!
Gave me quite a lot of problems at the customs because they keep beeping at the metal detectors. Hahaha!

We also had a nice lunch at a coffee place nearby.
I really love the food there! ♥
I’m not a huge coffee drinker, but I think through this Europe trip,
I’ve learnt how to enjoy coffee more than before.

We also went back to the Eiffel Tower to get on the river cruise and saw the Eiffel Tower lighting up!
The light-up is at 6pm, for those who are going there soon.
It’s totally gorgeous so you guys have to check it out too if you’re heading over to Paris. ♥

The tower is gorgeous at nightfall!
I’m in love.

It sparkles too! This picture does it no justice at all.
I think it sparkles every hour for a couple minutes.
We were in that area for around 3 area and saw it sparkles thrice! :p

River cruise!
We decided to get on the upper deck to have a better view from the cruise.
But it was SO GODDAMN COLD!
The wind and all made us shiver and grab on to our scarfs tight as we sat there in awe of the gorgeous Paris skyline.

And of course, the heat packs are our best friend in chilly nights like this one.

We had a flight to Rome to catch the next day so we decided to end the night early.
On our way back, we decided to take some pictures at a photo booth as a way to say Goodbye (for now) to Paris!

I noticed a few comments on the previous posts asking about the apartment I stayed at.
I actually found this awesome room at Roomorama and I have no regrets!
The room is at 90 euros a night and I think we got a pretty good deal for a great location like this one.
We had a kitchenette in the room (all built inside a cupboard), toilets with nice heaters and shower,
and I like how everything looks very simple but yet they have everything we need in there. :)

You guys can check out some of the pictures of the apartment in the link above.

When we got to Rome, we got to A’s friend’s apartment at Piazza Santa Chiara.
The location is totally awesome – for the 4 days in Rome, we didn’t have to take any public transport at all.
We could walk to almost everywhere from our apartment.
Here are some pictures of the apartment before we messed it up. :p

It was already pretty late by the time we arrived at the apartment.
So after settling down, we decided to just walk over to the nearby Piazza Navona (2 mins walk away) for dinner.

Before I go, here are some pretty nail polishes I received from Nail Splash in my mailbox yesterday!
I love these China Glaze and Essie polishes I have, the colours are unique and there were so many to choose from.
Oh and Orly too!
They also have other brands like Deborah Lippman and Butter London,
I heard these are pretty exclusive and hard to find in Singapore.
Nail Splash is the first to bring them in!
If you wanna try these brands, which are favourites of many Hollywood stars, do check them out.
As for glitter lovers, do check out the TiNS range available there too.

  7. To Traveler: Nope. I don’t find it disturbing at all. They’re so lovely. Love has no boundaries. We should accept who they are & it’s none of our business. It’s her blog & we should respect that. (:

  8. to traveler: agree with Flor and nope i do not find it disturbing too. if any of P’s reader find it disturbing they DO have a choice of not reading HER private blog. And just out of curiosity, if anyone happen to see you and your wife/hubby kissing on ur wedding day. if they were to ask you to stop cuz IT IS disturbing. would you have stopped to?
