New Year's Eve in Paris Part 1

I have just arrived back from an amazing long weekend in Paris with my boyfriend well they do call it one of the most romantic cities. This was our first holiday to Europe & because of my superb planning skills we didn't get lost!

On our first day in Paris we explored where we were staying in the 15th arrondissement we walked 30 minutes towards the river seine & it was such a glorious day we could see the French version of the Statue of Liberty & the Eiffel Tower! 

My shearling coat is from M&S in the sale for £41 and the hat is from Matalan for £6 I felt very Parisian chic!

The New Years eve celebrations in paris started with a lovely meal at a restaurant called deuz I had crayfish to start, scallops & risotto for main then chocolate cake!.They even gave us a little treat before we left superb service!

After a long journey on the metro we pushed through the crowds to get to the Champ Élysées to see the arc de triomphe we read that it was the first year Paris had planned a big light show & fireworks it sure was spectacular! There must of been over 500,000 people you couldn't move but it is an experience I will never forget!

On day 2 of our trip to Paris we found out there was a parade on the champ élysées and a Christmas market so we headed towards the arc de triomphe.  They had mulled wine at the Christmas market too!


After the parade and market we went for a ride on the wheel known as the Roue de Paris such an amazing view!  We also managed to fit in the Notre Dame & the lovelock bridge which is so romantic leaving a part of you in Paris! 

On the evening we ate at a seafood restaurant La cagouille I had haddock salad to start & cod soup for main best fish I've ever had!

Look out for part 2 coming soon! Happy new year everyone!
