SATURDAY/SAMEDI

It was spent frolicking the streets and  getting my last fill of France before heading home early the next day.

THURSDAY/JEUDI

THURSDAY/JEUDI

5am hair and makeup. 7 am Eiffel Tower photo shoot with Pierre Torset. I couldn’t believe how warm it was at 7 am. The Trocadero is amazing. Besides the few runners – it was like the city was still asleep (and probably was!). We then went over to Marais to take photos at the restaurant.

In some photos you can really see the blue black semi gloss that was put in my hair for the L’Oreal shoot. What do you think?

After a nap, I explored around the Arc di Triomphe. I had to take a picture of the metro station sign, I kept thinking of the word Poisson.

WEDNESDAY/MERCREDI

WEDNESDAY/MERCREDI

I was up for the challenge
– both getting up early on vacation and to make croissants and Pain du
Chocolat. I attended a baking class at La Cuisine Paris
and understood why the flaky pastry tasted SO good. It has something to
do with the 5 pounds of butter.

That was my salmon and
broccoli quiche I had for lunch too.

I managed to walk it off
later in the day when I went to the Louvre and signed up for a treasure hunt
with THATLou. Let me tell you – it was tricky
but I never learned so much about the artifacts and paintings in such a clever
and unique way (sadly I lost – next time I would do this as a team of two at
least!)
