Paris day 2&3

Day 2 ended here. Pretty amazing, we clambered up to the sacre coeur just before the sun started to dissapear leaving a orange glow over the city, but before all that... 

Continuing on our chocolate voyage through Parie we visited the Lindor shop where little chocolate balls wrapped in gold, red and blue lined the walls along with chocolate Eiffel towers with chefs at the back making rich hot chocolate and mini desserts. 
We then went to Laduree along the Champs Elysees for macaroons, all the shops where covered with hot pink and gold leaf macaroons for the launch of Nina Ricci's new fragrance. 

From here we went to the Moulin Rouge.

Photos aren't allowed in the 'club' so this was the only one I could sneak but yes all of these where drank...
To be honest the show was a little dissapointing, the atmosphere was amazing but I was expecting more :(

We watched the sun set on another amazing day.

The next day we kept it fairly relaxed, we visited an amazing antique market on the outskirts of Paris, which literally has everything. 

Then we went to do some more touristy stuff..

We walked all along the river to the Louvre, through the gardens and back again before heading back for tea. 
We had an extra day but unfortunately I wasn't feeling great so we did a bit of shopping and headed home. 
Thanks for an amazing trip Paris! 
See you soon.  

Other tips...

Go and watch the sunset, we went to the Sacre Coure which was amazing but extremely busy so next time we're going to hunt out a spot a bit more secluded!

Explore back streets, they're so beautiful and you never know what you may find.

Take pictures of everything, even looking back I've forgotten some things that I wish I had captured!
