Paris, je t'aime

Our lovely room

The breakfast room

I meant to post about the hotel I stayed in when I was in Paris back in February but of course it slipped my mind. Better late than never I suppose. Hotel Arvor is the first hotel i've stayed in in Paris because generally when I visit I stay with friends but I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is not only very good value but it's in a great location and is also wonderfully stylish. Breakfast is not included and is pricey enough at €11 but considering we only paid €400 for four nights it certainly wouldn't break the bank. It's properly cool too, We Have Band were being interviewed in the lobby when we arrived and Marina of Marina and the Diamonds was checking in as we were leaving.


Catherine Recommends

Ziaga Natural Skincare Range. A colleague of mine gave me a gift of a selection of Polish beauty products for Christmas. Now, I was never too bothered about what kind of shower gel or moisturiser I used until I started using this stuff. It's incredible and it smells amazing. I have the shower gel, body balm and hand cream from the cocoa butter range and you can get it from all good chemists and it's usually between €3 and €5.


We Have Friends In Design

Our friend Anna (I am all about plugging friends projects this week) is a graphic design graduate and has a blog called Puking Rainbows where she does some very amusing design criticism that i'm sure you'll all love.

Some of our friends have decided to start a little fashion blog over here. I know they're our friends but we really like it and think you will too.
