I really forced myself to exercise some self restraint whilst in Paris. But that crumbled pretty quickly. I picked up some French magazines, including an independent magazine called Paulette which uses their readers as models. Pretty cool no? I also couldn't resist popping into MAC (post featuring my purchase coming soon) and Shakespeare & Company to get a copy of Hemingway's Paris memoir. When you buy a book at S&Co you get their stamp which makes it feel pretty special. I'm a postcard hoarder so I grabbed a few more to add to my collection. I'm thinking of putting them up in picture frames once my other half and I move into our new place this summer.
A trip to Paris wouldn't be complete without macaroons from Ladurée. I picked these up in Charles de Gaulle airport and carefully transported them back to Cardiff. I can't bring myself to eat them just yet, they look so beautiful and it'll be impossible to try and make them last. The nearest Ladurée is in London so these really are a treat!
Are there any special things you guys treat yourself to when you go abroad?
