Guide to 8 most photogenic places in Paris

Paris no doubt is one of the most photogenic places in the world! Ahhh, the Eiffel tower again! (I know, I know…).

Each year there are around 25 millions tourists coming to Paris, and 99% of them come to top destinations like the Eiffel Tower or Louvre museum…. But believe me, this post is not just about naming the most popular places to visit where there are full of people. I’m gonna guide you to the most photogenic places in Paris with beautiful corners that I have just had a chance to sight-see with my Vietnamese friend Helly Tong when she came to visit me.

Having lived here for 3 years, I could say I know this city well. However going around Paris with someone who came here for the first time like this, was such a rare occasion that I could see Paris again with fresh eyes.

Denim dress

I’ve been looking for a perfect denim dress for ages!

It has to be in a perfect blue colour, I’d always prefer it to be in blue blue to greenish blue. Faded blue can be interesting too. Some pockets, big buttons. A belt! I always love unusual touches, the contrast between forms and materials. We’ve seen many flowy, silk dresses with belt, so for a denim dress, a belt is such a pretty touch to enhance the feminine form that contrasts with the tough material.

Coton Coloré

Colours tell us stories, and often give us the impression of characters, too.
Brown, grey or any dusty colour often associate with boring people. To wear taupe and not being boring is like breaking the standard prejudice about colours (and about ourselves).
How I love breaking prejudice!
Like that taupe coat with a touch of jeans textures, worn with pink and magenta. Mushy white flowers on a rough canvas band, flowing over a navy, dusty blue silhouette. It is a spring morning in Normandy, with fresh, cold air in March…

Kitchen talk

I spend a lot of time staying at home in Paris lately and organising my plans for school and work. That makes my travel-bug bite become so uncomfortable and gives me a fluctuating mood. That’s the power of weather, isn’t it? I’m doing my best to avoid being affected by it.
Here I have some solutions…

Colour of the sun

I always love this part of Paris.
Apart from the tourist crowd around La Basilique du Sacré Coeur, the rest of Montmartre behind the Basilique was gracefully quiet on a summer afternoon in August, where I walked uphill to rue Caulaincourt to see all the beautiful stairs and passageways.

I never thought of wearing suede in summer weather, but I did…

Chic packing light how to #1: Shoes that go with you everywhere

One cute pair for everyday activities, one comfortable pair for running late, one pair of heels for dinner or going on a date with a handsome man if needed…. I would need to bring 3 pairs of shoes at least! 3 PAIRS…OMG they would take enormous space! What can I do? No date possibility or no running late? Well, we can never tell things before they happen… I should bring them all!)
Should I?

Palazzo Sant’Angelo

Venice was a blast! One of the thing that made me happy the most was the hotel Helly and I stayed in Venice. The Palazzo Sant'Angelo really won my heart with their fine interior, magnificent view and excellent service. Therefore I decide to write a post to recommend them (though they did not pay me to do this), and most ...


I couldn’t describe the colours of Venice.
We all know the Italian love colours (wait for my photos of Cinque Terre coming soon), but this, the colours of Venice, they are a little different, not too vibrant, not too dim… they are combined together in a perfect harmony that just took my heart away immediately!
