No trip to Paris would be complete without a visit to the world famous Laduree bakery to pick up some of their delicious macaroons... and the other cakes were pretty tempting to!
I was so excited to see that the gorgeously talented Christian Louboutin has designed not only an illustrated gift box but his own macaroon - one half black one half red just like the soles on his famous shoes.

We enjoyed a glass of red with our meal in first class on the way home on the Eurostar while I made a really long list of all the items that I would be ordering from the Paris catwalks. By the time we got to London I had polished off a whole box. whoops!
Here are some of the things you'll definitely see me wearing next year
Yves blue from Yves Saint Laurent and lots of lace from Viktor and Rolf
Parisian Chic from Sonia Rykiel and vampish red from Christian Dior
Two takes on frills from Giambattista Valli and Chanel
simple chic from Chloe and Celine
Hope you like my choices
