Enjoy The Perfect French Sunday In Paris.
Oh! Paris, the city of love. And food, and intellect, and art, and gorgeous architecture. Listen closely, as I am about to blow your mind with the mental image I’m about to paint you. What is a perfect Sunday? One in Paris, as it is the day for rest, to reflect on all aspects of your life, but never neglecting doing it in style, so shall we?
Your eyes open as your curtain let’s a soothing amount of light into your room. You’re hungry, physically and also, starved for information about the night before you text on your friends group chat and meet for breakfast at your favorite place: “Hollybelly”, that Vogue listed as number 1 on the list of best places to eat at the beginning of the day. In Vogue, we trust. To 5 Rue Lucien Sampaix we’re off.
You’re starring at your Granola engorging it, Laura has given you the tea, now what’s next? Lose yourselves in paintings.
You splash on some dark lipstick and enrobe yourselves in your trench coats, and end up in the Musée d’Art Moderne, where Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Gustav Klimt, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Monet, become your best friends, yet very platonically, they’re too cool for anyone.
You now have a full stomach, eyes filled with beauty. Now your spirit needs a helping too. Could it be yoga time? There is an oasis in Paris, one that you only might have seen in your dreams if you are lucky. All the celebs resort to this free establishment and nourish themselves. Two words for you: Parc Sceaux.
After some yoga, relaxation, and spiritual guidance held by tall trees and a reflecting lake, it’s time for you and your girls to go home take showers, put your favorite outfits on, heels that make you feel gorgeous yet you’re not in an amount of pain that makes you want to stab someone with the heel. You need a goodbye week party. Cocktails anyone?
There’s a private garden, very secretive, in the Novotel de Paris les Halles, it holds events that help you regain strength for the next hard week of work ahead of you. You’ll have a Martini, and while you sip on it, laughing to your friends, you’ll be thanking me. Enjoy your perfect Sunday in Paris my friends!
