Notting Hill Girl: Birthday in Paris
This trip wasn't about tourist sites, and I kind of feel bad that I didn't even set my sights on the Eiffel Tower as I love it! There was just no time...

Myths and Facts About Paris
MYTH: No trip to Paris is complete without a visit to the Eiffel Tower. I've been once on top of the Eiffel Tower. I can't remember any mind-blowing views or unforgettable love scenes- just a "breeze" that blew my skirt over my head, endless queues and a very annoying girl dressed in pink...
Paris | First Impressions I've passed the Louvre museum, the Place de la Concorde, I've seen the Champs Élisées, the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame church. It is all so magnificient. Through my strolls on the city I've seen so many stylish women, passing by on high heels, radiant of style. Those parisiennes truly...
Lancôme Maison Lancôme Gentle and Long-Lasting Powder Blusher from 29 St Honoré for Fall 2011 When you use the top layer, which has an overspray on the design of the lamp post and Eiffel Tower, it definitely adds shimmer. That shimmer will diminish with use.
I was surprised by how light this blusher is. It reminds me of Chanel's new Pink Cloud. You can control how pink it is with...
Paris Eco Tote With Purchase Illustrations associated with the Big Apple cover on one side (most prominent among them, the Statue of Liberty) and, on the other side, sketches of Parisian landmarks (most notably, the Eiffel Tower) remind us of the City of Light's allure.
The fluid look of the colors lend the tote a...

It's Fierce and It Called To Me But, anyway, I'm extremely glad that after months and months of Sophie's hard work to come up with a sassy, mataray version of the Travel Pro series, it's finally out in all its fierce faux crocodile-skinned glory:
The Eiffel Tower and Dutch windmills on the box. Can't get any wanderlust-y...
Champagne on top of the Eiffel Tower Day one – The Eiffel Tower. You might think that there is nothing luxurious about the Eiffel Tower. Well, and you are probably right. The crowds are never ending, even when there is a rainstorm (yes, there was one that day too). However, they do serve champagne there, which I think is...
Holy Grail: Charm Travel Pro Makeup Brush Set V.3 And though I don't have the money to enjoy the Eiffel Tower of Swiss Alps, I'm glad to have this brush set with me. Even if it's only to travel the Philippines. Hey! The PH have great places to visit, noh!
And this set is surely coming with me to my trip to Tagaytay this month and next...
Clare Owen's Amazing Art Seeing art like Clare Owen's, though, makes me want to whip out my feather duster (or perhaps just my sleeve), de-dust those paints, and set them into art action! Clare's panoply of oh-so-good-lookin' oeuvres, whose cute, cut-paper aesthetic makes my heart Texas two-step, is as inspiring as...
Fall 2011: Lancôme 29 Saint-Honoré Fall Color Collection. How beautiful is that with the Eiffel tower embossed in it? I see another collectors piece for my collection.

I LIKE YOU!
Lancome A/W 2011 Make Up: 29 St Honore There are golden shimmer sparkles around the lamp and on the Eiffel Tower that don't translate well in the picture but are, in fact, absolutely lovely.
The eye palette in my view is nothing much to shout about, but is very wearable. Les Oeillades in Blondette Fatale, £33, has brown and...

Eiffel Tower tat:
The almost hyper-real brightness and colours of the Jardin Luxembourg and all the sightseers on a sunny day:
I also very much liked my new hotel discovery, Le Citizen. I finally found...
Challenging Perception: René Magritte: The Pleasure Principle, Tate Liverpool. In La Famine (1948) the Eiffel Tower is reduced to garish daubs and a French Policeman to a comic figure, apparently an attack on his alienation from the Paris surrealists.
It's often been said that Magritte's work wasn't technically brilliant. Indeed there are finer hands to be seen, and...
Carina100 Interior Design and Style - The Bedroom I love the blue and white striped wallpaper on the alcove wall (Casadeco Wallpaper Stripes OJ760339) and the different shades of blue in the accessories, like the Mimo cobalt blue lamp, the Megan Quinton Eiffel Tower cushions and the John Lewis royal blue attache trunk.
I'm really enjoying...
