Paris, Part One: Cigarettes and Chocolate

The title of this post is play on a great Rufus Wainwright song I put on repeat while walking along the river; mostly, this song embodies the very attitude of the city. Take a listen

This was my second time visiting ol' Paris, and I think I loved it even more this time around. I wasn't rushed to see all the sites I had seen before, which left more time for croissants, crepes and espresso. This made for a very happy (and slightly chubbier) Ashley.

I started my trip with the Notre Dame. I loved it last time, and my love continues for this Gothic wonder...

 Notre Dame, we meet again! You're looking lovely, as always. 

Cute paris streets & street corners.

 Paris, a city made for the rain! 

 Listening to "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" while gazing at the pretty river and architecture. 

I don't have to say too much. The splendor of the city speaks very well for itself...

Until my next post, in which I share more devilishly delicious pictures of Paris (and the food). 


  1. Wow, these pictures are just stunning.

  2. I'm one month away from Paris! These photos are so romantic. Cannot wait til you post your food photos.

  3. so amazing, these photos totally remind me when I went in November. I miss it so much! I actually didn't really love their crepes though, I really want to live in cali, how do you like living in england!

  4. You went on yet another trip!! Beautiful pictures!

  5. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
