Between the Hubs & I we've been to Paris nearly dozen times so all the "touristy" sites we've done a few times over but there's one thing I've never had the opportunity to see and made it a personal mission to do on this trip back to Paris was to see the Christmas window displays at Galeries Lafayette & Printemps!
As you can see everyone else and their momma had the same idea. You might be able to pick out my head looking back at the camera lol!
They're MAGICAL and definitely did not disappoint!!
The displays were all animatronics and were covered in glitter and sparkly bling!
They even had displays where all the bears were carrying mini Prada bags in a rainbow of colors!
Totally beats Macy's window displays during the holidays!
This one was a tiny mouse chef w/ a giant lobster & lemons pushing open the door and the tiny ballerina mouse was holding it open for him! SO CUTE!
Cutest snow owls ever!
This one was one of my favorites the tiny bear was actually pulling the covers up over himself so adorable!
Mini sparkly blue holiday dress! :)
The ballerina at the front I think was trying to pull her ballerina dress on.. and the Hubs said it looked like she pooped her pants -___- SIGH.
Galeries Lafayette grocery store!
Love how in Europe & Asia the bottom basement level of the malls are these AMAZEBALLS amazing gourmet grocery stores!!
Giant wall of just ALL FOIE GRAS!
So many things to eat not enough stomach room lololol!
$1200 EUR for these truffles AMAZING!
These were $930 EUR!
The little green bear is carrying a mini blue Prada bag!!
These displays are apparently all sponsored by Prada.
The latest Prada shoes seem reminiscent to the Miu Miu's from the last couple of seasons! The heels are covered in crystals.
This was SUPER ADORABLE!!!
The Gondola actually circled the mountain on a track!! And the tiny bears all wore mini black Prada nylon backpacks!!!
Can't get enough of my new vintage mini orchid Chanel! :)
|Foie Gras Burger & Pommes Frites|
The seared Foie Gras was so rich and decadent.
Nobody does burgers & fries like the Parisians! I think the fries were triple fried btw hahaha.
We literally had Foie Gras with EVERY meal while in Paris (I mean why wouldn't you hahaha!!) But I don't think I can eat Foie Gras for awhile lololol.
Bye bye Paris!!
It's been lovely!
And the Hubs thought he was safe.
I turned around after taking the photo above and ran straight into the Hermes store.
Lucky for the Hubs they didn't have what I was looking for.
Sadly nothing from the Hermes duty free but there was this ADORABLE Laduree carriage!!
Nobody does packaging like Laduree!
|Vanilla, Rose, Holiday Special Marshmallow Framboise, Salted Caramel, Violette & Coffee|
All of my favorites!
And they had a special Holiday one (the 3rd one from the left covered in sugar crystals) the inside was actually a soft marshmallow filling. Honestly it was a bit too sweet for me. But the rest were LOVE!!!
The perfect ending to our 5th anniversary Paris trip :)!
