Ashley Brooke Designs - Le 8th Arr.


Good Morning and Happy Monday to you!

Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend”¦

Photo 1: Hello Paris!


As you might have noticed, we are on a bit of a French holiday! We arrived on the redeye Saturday afternoon, and have been exploring the city ever since! So far we’ve taken a fabulous bike tour, seen the Eiffel Tower sparkle, meandered through palace gardens, and eaten ALL the food. It’s been THE BEST.

Not that this trip could get any better, but our One Fine Stay apartment is kind of unreal! We’ve decided to pretend that we are French (don’t worry, we are failing, but at least we are putting forth some effort, you know?) since THESE are literally the doors to our apartment for the next few days. Heavenly.

While wondering around yesterday afternoon, we stumbled across Le Palais Royal! This landmark was totally on our to-see list, but was a happy accident to run into while, to be honest, we were on the hunt for a latte and a croissant! This has been by far one of my favorite places we’ve visited. So many pretty things! When I thought of Paris, this is the kind of thing I envisioned!

Photo 3: Macaroons + The Eiffel Tower


Last night before dinner (because when you are on vacation dessert doesn’t count!), we opened up the box of macarons we had picked up earlier in the day and found a perfectly lazy spot in the grass to enjoy them as we waited for the Eiffel Tower to light up! It was utterly and completely the perfect Parisian moment! 



Hope your weekend was equally as lovely! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!  xoxo
