The Paris Diaries Spring

I arrived in Paris still under the weather but I did manage to sleep a bit on the plane via the help of some cough medicine. I swear this was the key to fighting jet lag. After falling asleep again on the way into the city I felt pretty rested for a long plane ride. I typically never sleep and my flight arrives later. We had a 2 hr delay on the ground so I didn’t arrive to Paris until the afternoon. 

I spent two lovely days at Le Cinq Codet on the Left Bank. My room was ready upon arrival and I was so happy to check in. As a Birthday gift, I was upgraded to the nicest room in the hotel. I felt completely spoiled. My terrace had a hot top with lounge chairs and a view of the Eiffel Tower. It is safe to say there were happy tears coming down my face.

I quickly unpacked and showered to get ready for my meeting with Corey Frye. Since we were meeting in The Marais, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t late so I headed over that way for a late lunch. I ended up eating at Le Favorite which is also where we filmed the video.

I got off the metro at St Paul and was greeted by the most amazing cherry blossom display.

It was still chilly but on the way to a warm up. Since I was still sick, I was dressed in my leather coat, scarf, and sweater. I did manage to wear my new red blondo flats and a red lip. After watching the video, I am so happy I wore the red lip. It might be my new favorite accessory after my bangs. 


We did a Live video in the Marais which you can see here. 

The original video is here. I had a blast with Corey! 

I walked around The Marais a bit before taking the Metro back to my hotel. I had plans to meet a friend for drinks to celebrate my Birthday.

We ended up at Biondi for small bites and drinks. Afterwards we headed to the bar at Candalaria. I can’t say much for the bar here since it was SO loud. I left thinking gosh I am old. I prefer places where I can hear conversations. The food looked great if you love Mexican and the cocktails were good. Just after being jet lagged and still sick. Yelling with no voice was not what I wanted to do. 

I headed back to the hotel where I was greeted with champagne and chocolates from Angelina on my pillow. The two ways to my heart were right there waiting for me.

I put on my bathrobe and enjoyed the Eiffel Tower sparkling from my balcony at Le Cinq Codet Paris.

  2. What color is your red nail polish? And what color of the lipstick did you get for the red lip?

    I love reading these, thanks for sharing!

    • Hi! The nails are rue de la ruby by essie.

      The lipstick, I carry a few with me. I love the burgandy one which is #21 I think and #22 is good too. I also love the poppy color #13 for Spring. It is in my bag.
