Autumn Holiday Advice

So, Superbreak are holding a competition to win a weekend in Paris, and it's one of my dreams to run away to France for a couple of days so I figured I would give it a go!

I did a spot of brainstorming and figured I'd do a post about what I would take to Paris, if I were to go.  I've included my favourite autumn outfit above too, for a bit of inspiration.

♥ Umbrella - with autumn comes rain clouds, wherever you are!
♥ Camera - to capture every moment
♥ Map - circle all the places you want to visit
♥ iPad - travelling by Eurostar can get pretty dull
♥ Hand sanitiser - the Metro can get grubby
♥ Euros (duh!)

♥ Snuggly coat 
♥ Tights
♥ Scarf
♥ Comfy shoes - there will be a lot of walking
♥ Big bag - for carrying around the expensive souvenirs you will buy too many of
♥ Sunglasses - just in case there's a spot of sun!

♥ Padlock - for if you're going with a partner & want to be a part of the Love Lock bridge!
♥ Disposable cameras - because everything looks better on film
♥ Video camera - for vlogging if you're a YouTuber (I know I would!)

Sites to visit:
♥ Eiffel Tower (duh)
♥ Notre Dame Cathedral
♥ The Louvre
♥ Dali Museum
♥ The Seine - boat tour!
♥ Arc de Triomphe
♥ Les Invalides church
And many more!

If I were to win, I would of course take my boyfriend Alex as we've never been away with just us two, and I'm not even kidding when I say that I would drag him along to every tourist site, #NoShame.  Are any of you guys lucky enough to be venturing to Paris any time soon?

  5. I'm actually going to Paris tomorrow for the weekend, yihaa! :)
    I hope you'll be able to go soon! Love your style, by the way, I'm a huge fan.

  6. I Love Paris!
    Everytime i went there always been really quick. Always for gigs ^^
    But I'm going there with my boyfriend this winter so we will be able to enjoy together :)

    Hope you will win and will have fun :)

  7. I crashed on a friends floor in Paris for a while last Summer, I'd really recommend two things: Versailles (it's a short train ride out, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most amazing places I have ever stepped foot) and the Musee de L'Orangerie, it's the gallery where they have Monet's Nympheas, really breathtaking paranoramic paintings (featured in Midnight in Paris, great film and a must watch before a Paris trip!). Good luck :)!

  8. I was lucky enough to turn 21 on the Eiffel Tower last year. It was freezing cold, raining and absolutely PERFECT. You can read more about it here if you'd like!
    Unfortunately, I got a stupid bug on the trip and we didn't see the Moulin Rouge show :( I'd love to go back just for that.
