I bet you never thought you would see the words "bargain" and "Saint Laurent in the same sentence, right?!" I have an obsession with handbags. There. I admitted it. Happy now? I should probably seek some sort of group therapy where we all sit around in a circle talking about our deep underlying problems that have led us all to be obsessed with handbags, but I'm much happier scrolling through Net-a-Porter creating my wish list.

The Notre Dame Cathedral is one of the free attractions that Paris has to offer, and although the queue may look like you'll be waiting around all day, it moves so quickly it only takes about ten minutes to get in! The architecture of the Notre Dame is extremely intricate and when you get up close, you can really see just how much work must have gone into its design.
Notre Dame is very reliant on donations by the public so there are a lot of opportunities throughout the visit to dig deep in your pockets and spare some of your holiday money for this historic landmark. They also have some extraordinary souvenirs with most of the profits going straight back to the church or different charities.
I hope you've enjoyed reading the 'Christmas in Paris' blog series and that it's given you some sort of idea on what to do when time is limited! Thank you for reading :)

Our second day in Paris also happened to fall on my birthday which is on Christmas Eve. Except for Christmas Day, it's probably the worst day you can have your birthday as everyone is too wrapped up in the holiday season to really do anything. I wouldn't consider myself as very "cultured" when it comes to museums however, I was desperate to visit the Musee du Louvre during our time in Paris.

As much as I love the Christmas period, Christmas Day itself can be pretty boring and as an only child with divorced parents, nothing particularly eventful ever really happens. This year my dad wasn't in the country for Christmas so it was the perfect opportunity for my Mum and I to go away on a city break.

Ho Ho Ho! Christmas is coming and I'm super excited! Over the last few years, beauty advent calendars have become a BIG thing. There are so many of them available on the market; from your high street brands to your higher end labels, they're all at it.
I love the traditional chocolate advent calendar as much as the next person, but the beauty fanatic inside of me is lusting over some of these advent calendars big time.
But it's not all about beauty advent calendars this year. There are so many different kinds available on the market for 2014 and this post is going to show you some of my favourite ones!

As the Dubai Series comes to an end, it's time to share with you my favourite place to go to in Dubai, Atlantis the Palm.
The Atlantis hotel is probably one of the most famous hotels in the world and so it should be. I could happily spend a whole week there without even leaving the resort because there are just so many fun things to do!

This post is going to be about three things that I love to do whilst I'm in Dubai.
- Souk Al Bahar
- Visit the Burj Khalifa
- Watching the fountains outside the Dubai Mall
All three things are in close proximity to each other (and Dubai Mall) so if you're only in Dubai for a short stay, you could easily do all of this in a day.
