JARDIN DE TUILERIES.

While it’s certainly no secret that I have not been prioritising my blog while on this whirlwind Eurocation, I couldn’t help but stop for a quick fashion blogger moment in the Jardin de Tuileries in Paris after a beautiful morning spent in the Musée de l’Orangerie gazing at Monet, Picasso, Renoir and Matisse (pinch me).

I feel like I have been wearing the exact same outfit every day this last month, so it’s nothing exciting but it really is no wonder that Parisien bloggers do their outfit photos here – it’s spectacular. I can really imagine myself moving to Paris. It has everything I dream of and I can just imagine coming home to a quaint and charming apartment in one of these picturesque streets, with my cat sitting on the colourful flower box-lined balcony, and drinking wine with friends til all hours. Le sigh.

NORWAY VIA INSTAGRAM.

When I was 17, I spent a year abroad living in the beautiful Norway. Now 25, being able to re-visit the families who hosted me, the friends I made and breathe in everything this incredible country has to offer was truly spectacular. It sounds cliched, but I promise you it is the most pristine place with stunning fjords, magical forests and views that make your jaw drop no matter how many times you see them. I can’t even describe it in words. The people, the environment, the lifestyle, it’s something that you can’t really comprehend until you experience it yourself. These are just a few of the snaps I took via Instagram and I look forward to sharing my other photos and more stories with you shortly.

This trip has been magical and I never want it to end. I’m currently sitting in the most adorable apartment in the heart of glorious Paris, surrounded by picturesque laneways and windowsills with colourful flowerboxes. Paris is making my heart beat faster and faster, I can totally imagine myself living here. xx

ENGLAND VIA INSTAGRAM.

How much does a hipster weigh? An instagram. Haha. OK, so when people told me that this holiday couldn’t have come at a better time for me, I didn’t really believe it. I guess I was just too caught up. Anyway, it’s been a blast. Totally bonza. From the Harry Potter studio tour (which deserves it’s own blog post – and yes, I’m a HP nerd from way back) to eating at Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant in Hyde Park (I’m a bit of a food nerd too) to exploring the hometown of my alltime favourite musical heroes, the Fab Four in Liverpool. Plus everything in between. Shakespeare. Roman ruins. Quaint towns and quainter pubs. Sightseeing. Catching up with old friends, making new. West End. Brick Lane. Endless and ridic cheap fast fashion. British cats. Harrods. Countryside. Accents. Cocktails. I’ll do some proper blog posts as soon as I can, but in the meantime, here are some snippets from Instagram. Follow me if you like @stylepaws. xx

ON MY WAY.

So I’m jetsetting off on a European adventure over the next month, revisiting some of my favourite countries in the world. Hopefully I’ll be able to check in somewhere along the way.

It’s been 8 years since I was living and studying in Norway and I just cannot wait to be able to reconnect with all my loved ones over there. This time will be particularly special as I can share the experience with my family.

I’m looking forward to having my head in the clouds, my feet off the ground and my heart swept away with wanderlust, leaving everything behind. See you all shortly. xx
