VACATION STYLE - PARIS

 Paris, France was the third stop on my vacation. Paris holds a very special place in my heart because it has been on my bucket list since I was a child and I have my great grandma to thank for the wanderlust that I am. As a child, I would sit and talk to her for hours about places she traveled and my excitement to visit the same places. She never visited France but it was the one place she and I talked most about. I was so happy to walk the streets and visit the sights I dreamed of.
Paris is breathtaking, filled with tourist but beautiful. From the moment we landed I was in my element, it was almost like the city was welcoming me, the weather was perfect! It rain a bit on our second day there but I loved it, I felt like I got a little bit of everything. We walked up the Champs-Élysées, ate delicious pastries and food, visited the sights, walked endlessly exploring the city and even walked 4 miles to get delicious Crepes that came highly recommended by a friend. It was worth the 4 miles walk.
The view from the Summit of the Eiffel Tower is amazing! I wish I could post all the amazing photos my husband and I took.

VACATION STYLE - LONDON

I absolutely love London, we took the train from Manchester to London and the entire train ride was mesmerizing! London is so beautiful, I was blown away by the character of the city; the busy streets, the breathtaking architecture, museums and the ever so beautiful churches. We did the big bus tour and we loved it, I swear we got off at every stop and explored! I should also add, since I am a big foodie and couldn't stop eating, every meal was hearty and delicious but chips aka french fries in England are out of this world, I felt like I was back in Idaho, they were not greasy and they were made with REAL potatoes, pure deliciousness.

The best part, was just walking around the city at night and taking it all in. I can't wait to go back.

VACATION STYLE - MANCHESTER

I am finally getting around to posting what I wore during my vacation. First stop, Manchester, UK. My husband and I are HUGE Manchester United supporters, so for his birthday last year one of his presents were tickets to "the Old Trafford Experience" which consisted of entry to the museum, a full tour of the stadium and lunch at the Red Cafe. Let me tell you, the tour did not disappoint. It was such a dream come true to visit Old Trafford and our guide Allan was so knowledgeable and he made the tour so wonderful. My husband could not stop talking about the experience, he was so excited. Next on the agenda, I have to get him tickets to go see a game :-)

FRENCH BRAID

Hello beautiful people, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend.

Two weekends ago when I went to my hair stylist, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my hair then I remembered a photo Danielle of the Style and Beauty Doctor posted of her hair in a beautiful french braid, to which I commented and told her I'll be stealing her look :-) Even though I have relaxed hair, the minute water touches it, it goes back to its natural state. So my hair stylist created this beautiful braid that I wish I didn't have to take out.

Outfit details: Top: H&M (similar) / Pants: Loft (loving THIS pair) / Pumps: Similar / Handbag: Angela & Roi / Necklace: Forever 21 (old) / Ring: House of Harlow Art Decor
