I went avec mon cheri to Paris!
Finally, after ten weeks (!) of keeping it secret, I told my boyfriend Aaron that I was secretly taking him to Paris for three days for his 30th birthday. (I think he'd kinda guessed, though!) It was AMAZING. The weather was glorious, the sights were beautiful and I was with my joint favourite person in the whole wide world. Perfect!
I could bore you with millions of photos but I thought I'd just show you what I wore for the three days we were there. First... the aquarium dress! You guys seemed to love it on Twitter and I have to say that I'm a bit obsessed with it. Doesn't look like Primark, no?
Snapped unawares by Aaron just before we tried l'escargots for the first time!
I thought they were delicous and Aaron hated them. Haha!
I couldn't resist this doorway up near the Sacre Coeur for a quick outfit photo.
I just took a very few of my favourite pieces of jewelery away with my on holiday. Apart from my Timex watch and my new Forever 21 necklaces, everything was name or initial jewelery! This is a lifetime obsession, I think. I love this beautiful gold one sent to me by Jewelery Personalised.
Wearing one of my very favourite dresses and posing by the locks on the bridge behind Notre Dame Cathedral, on Pont de l'Archevêché. I love how lovers write their names on locks and chain them to the bridge. Next time Aaron and I go, we're going prepared, even if he thinks it's mega cheesy! It kinda is - but hey, I kinda am too.
And here I am in the Two Windmills - the café from Amelie, one of our favourite films!
And, of course, I'm wearing another name necklace.
I'll tell you more about this one later this week!

Also, I was SUPER EXCITED to get a text from Sarah while I was away telling me that I'm been nomiated for Best Established Fashion blog at the Cosmo Blog Awards! I knew the awards were coming up but I didn't mention them anywhere so I'm absolutely thrilled that you guys were secreting nominating me. Like, seriously, you guys. I'm genuinely touched.
I am never gonna win but hey, I got this far. I'd really appreciate your vote!
