Just back from 3 sun drenched days in Paris with the teenager. So much to see so little time. 

A blissful afternoon was spent roaming the cobbled streets & independent shops & cafes of Montmartre. A whole day was spent on the open top hopper bus visiting all of the iconic postcard destinations. With stops off at the breathtaking Louvre, diversions to discover the more unfrequented alley ways, quay sides & parks Paris has to offer & to add a lock to the bridge at Pont de L'Archeveche.

On our wanderings we came across the beautiful shop window of Roses Costes Dani Roses. A peek inside unveiled the most beautiful selection of heavenly scented roses I've ever seen. Linked to the rather Chi Chi hotel Costes, set opposite Chanel & a mere well heeled stroll from Louboutin, it undoubtedly has a clientele that can buy a bouquet or two without the need to sell a vital organ ! 

An unhealthy amount of time was also spent concocting our own wish lists from the shop windows of Rue De St Honore.

Cake was bought and eaten, Sancerre quaffed & a very content duo with very achey feet boarded the Eurostar home, heavier but happier.
