I returned home almost a month ago after a week long trip to North Cyprus, my post holiday blues disappeared two weeks later and back to the usual daily humdrum.  Being a long term sun-hater, I really did miss my first proper sun bathing experience on a sandy beach, *tahdahhh, wave hands* hello freckled face and odd tan lines.  Perhaps I should include ‘Kit, formerly a sun-hater…‘ in my resume.  And another thing, I do miss my usual daily treats, chips. Yes chips!  Right now I’m laughing out loud because my next holiday is just around the corner!

Not long after my return, I spent two days in Paris with team Next and my lovely friends; Reem, Shini, Emily, Carrie and Ella (as pictured) just doing fun girly activities; from the long overdue catch up conversation over lunch at Schmuck, giggles and intensive macaron making masterclass at Les Secrets Gourmands De Noemie to sampling Pierre Herme‘s macarons, and La Maison Angelina‘s rich hot chocolate drink and mouthwatering eclairs.  The two day trip was relatively short-lived, can we have deja-vu every day so we can stay and have fun in Paris…like forever?

Pictorial highlights:

    Oh no, this post did not make me crave macarons or eclairs at all. What in the world, this trip looks perfect in so many ways and my tummy is making this horrible noise! I really want to go to Paris now. I really like your watch by the way, it looks really neat!
