Things to do in Paris

Paris is a city with endless sights to see, and often times too much to take in on one visit.  Having visited Paris more times than I can count, I have listed a few of my favourite activities that will give you a taste of the Paris I have come to know and love…

Take a walk along the Left Bank to see the Bouquinistes

The Bouquinistes are the booksellers and literary antiquarians that sell their wares from wooden boxes along the left bank of the Seine River in Paris.  Now a UNESCO World Heritage site, this stretch of the river and the unique book boxes are an important part of Paris’s literary history.



Have a coffee at Place de la Contrescarpe

Place de la Contrescarpe is a delightful square full of cafés that sits between the Pantheon and the oldest street in Paris, Rue Mouffetard in the 5th Arrondissement.  Before venturing down Mouffetard, stop in Place de la Contrescarpe for a coffee at one of the many cafés; and watch the world go by.  People-watching is one of the simple pleasures enjoyed in Paris, as illustrated by the outward facing chairs in the bars and restaurants.

See Notre Dame by night

Most people queue for ages to head inside Notre Dame Cathedral on the edge of the River Seine, and yes, it is something I recommend seeing.  However, I also recommend taking a walk around Notre Dame at night.  The façade and famous ‘flying buttresses’ (the external support system) are well-lit at night and there is something magical about seeing her grandeur at night.

Walk along the Promenade Plantée

Similar to New York’s High Line, Paris’s Promenade Plantée or Coulée verte René-Dumont, is an elevated green course built on the old Vincennes railway line.  Inaugurated in 1993, it was the only elevated park in the world until the High Line was created.  At 2.9 miles long, this walkway affords spectacular views of the 12th Arrondissement and lets you see Paris from a different angle.

How to make perfect eyebrows

 Sprancenele mele sunt destul de rare si oricat am incercat sa le fac frumoase si dese nu am reusit. Chiar daca am un machiaj reusit, daca sprancele nu sunt accentuate, ceva lipseste si pare in neregula per total. Fardurile de sprancene nu sunt intocmai preferatele mele desi stiu ca multe fete le prefera. Astazi vreau sa va arat un gel pentru sprancene achizitionat recent, care-mi place foarte mult : DipBrow gel de la Anastasia Beverly Hills. Este un gel de sprancene pigmentat, are acoperire buna, eu aplic putin produs si pentru mine este suficient, este rezistent la apa - dupa cateva minute de la aplicare nu se mai ia usor, nu curge,  si ofera un aspect natural si mat sprancenelor. Vine in varianta mini si full size, eu am luat varianta mini si il folosesc de cateva luni, insa nu zilnic. Dar este genul de produs care rezista destul de mult. Periuta face aplicarea foarte usoara, poti chiar sa dai putin forma sprancenelor cu ea. Dar se poate achiziona separat orice perie de sprancene

3 Amazing Uses of CBD Oil

    Image by Oliver King via Pexels  CBD oil has gained enormous popularity in the recent past for its incredible health benefits. Today, this  beneficial compound is present in various products, ranging from cookies to nasal sprays to even  burgers. Given its numerous advantages, there is no doubt that the oil will keep growing in popularity in  the future. Here is all you need to know about CBD oil and the potential benefits you could reap by  using it.  What is CBD Oil?  CBD, which stands for cannabinoids, is a compound found in Cannabis. Unlike THC, which is the other  primary compound in Cannabis, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not alter the working  of the brain to produce a “high” as THC does. It does, however, affect various body processes to alleviate  certain conditions. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the cannabis plant has been used for   medicinal purposes since 750 B.C . Well, here are three key benefits you stand to gain by using CBD oil.   CB

Atmosfera cozy de toamna la tine acasa cu aromaterapie

 Hello girls, Acum ca vara a trecut si toamna si-a facut simtita prezenta, imi petrec majoritatea timpului in casa, in living, unde mi-am pus si biroul. Petrecand atat de mult timp acasa de un an, este foarte important pentru mine ca sa am mereu casa ordonata, aranjata, primitoare unde sa ma pot simti relaxata. Toamna te ademeneste sa bei o cana buna de ceai, sa iei un pulover gros si confortabil, sa te simti cozy intr-o atmosfera placuta si imbietoare de toamna. Daca ai la cuptor si o prajitura cu mere si scortisoara, tabloul perfect de toamna este acasa. Seara imi place sa aprind lumanari parfumate , sa stau pe canapea cu cana de ceai si sa ma uit la un serial. Mirosul imbietor al lumanarilor Yankee candle ma face sa fiu relaxata, intr-un mediu linistitor cu un parfum imbietor. Yankee candle este brandul meu preferat de lumanari parfumate, colectiile lor de Craciun sunt mereu apreciate si il consider un cadou potrivit pentru cei care doresc sa aiba o casa parfumata. Momentan este c
