Last post we discussed everything properly posh and British for Christmas, today we are popping across the Channel to the croissant filled rival for my affections, la belle France. Paris in December is like living inside of a beautiful jewel box. Everything is lit up and decorated to the 9s, but with the quintessential artistry and luxury the French are known for. I was lucky enough to see Paris in all her festive glory twice. Once during my year abroad, when we also took a trip to Strasbourg’s Christmas Market, and last January after New Year. There’s already so much magic in Paris, its parks, streets, shops and cafés, then add that extra delight of buche de noel, pain d’épice and lights all around! In a year where travel has largely been out of the picture, I wanted to gift you all a little piece of a place I love so dearly. Without further ado, allons-y!
