Waiting for our flight.
(Which means automatic Selfies DUH. hehehehe.)
Back in one of our favorite cities!!
Palais Garnier or more commonly referred to simply as the Opera as it is the National Opera of Paris.

Just about died.
And I mean DIED when I saw this grape purple Balenciaga w/ giant GHW!!!
So tempted.. sooooooooooo tempted but I resisted because we were headed somewhere after this.
(Yup a Paris reveal coming soon!!! :)
They've started carrying some MCM back home @ Bloomie's & Saks.. but it's usually just the beige or black. None of the really fun stuff so I was kinda sorta totally obsessed when I saw this pop-up shop.
REALLLY loved these mini pink bags they were studded with different colored crystals and gold beading on it.. so freakin' cute!
Even MCM doggies!

Snack time :)
Oh man I'm officially obsessed w/ Canele's it's like eating Mochi w/ a caramelized burnt sugar crust and then soaked in alcohol wahahahaha.
Loved the "view"!
Quickie stop @ Pierre Herme for macarons!
Touted as the BEST macarons in all of France I just HAD to try them.
They have super unusual flavors and flavor combinations even savory ones w/ Foie Gras & Truffles!
Walking back to our hotel!
Hotel Scribe by SOFITEL.
The hotel is a block away from Galeries Lafayette and 2 blocks away from Place Vendome.
Great hotel especially if you want to stay in the shopping district. :p
(Good job Hubby lololol. The entire trip from beginning to end including our itinerary was a surprise from The Hubs and he did good! :)
Our hotel room!
Yves Saint Laurent sketches on the walls.. or is it Saint Laurent these days.. for some reason "YSL" rolls off the tongue so much easier then "SL". muhahahaha.
Smallest Hennessy bottle I ever did see :p
We had a corner room w/ a fabulous view!!
Ok now my review of the Pierre Herme macarons.
I quite enjoyed them they were definitely very unique (I had a Foie Gras & Chocolate one that was quite delicious). But I have to be honest I still think Laduree wins hands down. While Pierre Herme has more innovative and unusual flavors Laduree's are more traditional (and I'm a traditionalist through and through when it comes to food) and they just concentrate on making them taste really really good. I purchased a Rose macaron from both Pierre Herme and Laduree on this trip and while both were exceptional Laduree just had a stronger rose essence. Ultimately they're both amazing and it really just comes down to personal preference.
Stay tuned for more Paris posts!
