My Week In Pictures

I've finally started using the Instagram account I made over a year ago, and although we share almost all social media accounts for the blog, this isn't really one of them. It just isn't practical with Jasmine living near London and me in Paris so this will most likely be 100% me. I finally have a phone that can cope with Instagram (see ya Blackberry Bold that has given me jip since 2010) so I'll be instagramming quite a bit from here on out.

I've had quite a jam packed week, with a friend visiting me on the weekend followed by 6 days of work. I had a bit of an awakening the other day and realised that I am in one of the most beautiful, and most visited, cities in the world and I won't be here forever so I should take advantage of it whilst I can. I've been going for a fair few walks and because I live so centrally, I get to see some really stunning landmarks and architecture. 

From L-R:
1- This one needs no explanation, on one of the last days of winter the weather was perfect for a stroll through the Champ de Mars.

2- I thought there was only one 'love lock' bridge in Paris but it would seem there are two, this was on Pont de L'Archevêché which is right by Notre Dame.

3- I love cooking, but I don't have an oven in this flat so I have to make do by vicariously living through recipe books. This beauty has pretty photos and some useful recipes for me to try out in the future. 

4- I went to the Jardin d'Acclimatation in the bois de Boulogne with my visitor, which is basically like a mini farm-y zoo with a kids theme park inside. 

5- There's tonnes of street art in this area of paris, and Beaubourg is home to this beast. 

6- I started a carb-restrictive diet this week and this was one of my least boring meals; pancetta w. brussels sprouts, chicken breast and a spinach cream sauce. 

7- The view from Place de la Concorde as the sun was setting. I love getting little peeps of the Eiffel Tower from different parts of the city.

8- Café Pouchekine is my new favourite Pâtisserie, their macarons are better than Ladurée's and this giant took me ages to munch through. It definitely made a perfect last sweet treat before low-carbing.

9- This is the hot chocolate we had from Angelina's in the Jardin d'Acclimatation. Service was very different to in the Rue de Rivoli tea room, it was almost like a canteen but it was half the price  (€5) for the heavenly l'africain hot chocolate.
