My visit to Paris with Ric ♡

Picture heavy post! :)
We drove to Paris from the Netherlands and decided to stay in Paris for 2 days.
We stayed at the Mama Shelter Paris :)

The hotel is quite affordable with rates from 79 euros +/night.
They have a special on Sundays, so we drove there Sunday morning, arrived about 6 hours later.
We slept there Sunday and Monday night, then left Tuesday afternoon :)

This was more of a 'romantic' getaway trip lol, we wanted to go to Barcelona after as well, but
we did not have enough money and could not afford to go >< maybe another time :D

I have been to Paris before, but I would never mind going back there again just because the city
is very beautiful and I love the architecture. There is always something new to see. There are many
parts of France in general, that I would like to visit. I feel very grateful that I am able to visit places,
be able to eat good food, be around people who are friendly and kind to me. Although I like to keep
my personal life private, Ric and I have been in a long distance relationship for almost 5 years now.
That is why I travel to the Netherlands more often than some people. We try to see eachother at least
2 times a year, if not more, if possible.

Sorry for this horrible, blurry photo >> The hotel had natural skin/body care products! yay :D

We decided to take the Metro on Monday to travel throughout the city. The subway is very accessible
and affordable. We spent about 6 euros for a day pass and the subway line is just crazy compared to
the Toronto subway line, haha. I like how Toronto's subway line is simple and to the point though.

I didn't bring my DSLR with me... and I felt pretty stupid... but my Canon D12 did a pretty good job.

I also posted a few photos on my Instagram if you're interested in seeing a bit more :p
Hope you're all having a nice summer :)

Random new things :)

I bought this lovely pencil case from ONE's. It's by a brand called Languo :)
The highlighter below can actually be erased! :) I thought it was neat and cute so I bought it :p
They were both very reasonably priced. The pencil case was $5.99 and the highlighter was $1.99 :)

I also picked up this super cute Bubble mesh sponge from The Face Shop at Pacific Mall.
I will be doing a review on facial cleansing tools later in the month :)
The sponge was only $3 in the store, but I also found it on eBay here.
There is also one from Missha for about $4 on eBay here.

Hope you all had a nice weekend. I just wanted to share some of my random purchases :p
