While I was in France, I went to the Louvre. It’s another item I successfully marked off of my bucket list. I know a lot of people dream of visiting this museum, however travelling to France can be expensive for some people. One of my friends’ parents recently visited, they used a company like Key Equity Release in order to fund their trip against the value of their home. They had decided that since they are getting older, they should start making the most out of their lives by visiting all the places on their bucket list. This made me want to go and see more things around the world, where better to start than the Louvre Museum! This museum is so astounding and breathtaking, and HUGE. It’s obvious to see why it’s so popular and attracts so many tourists!

I wore a simple, comfortable outfit that I could walk long distances in, and that would also be warm. Museums filled with marble and tile tend to be very cold.

My best tips for navigating and enjoying the Louvre is to go very early. I went as soon as it opened and there was still a twenty minute wait to get inside. They have crowd control so that the museum doesn’t become a hazard, but I can assure you it’s still extremely crowded.

Bring water bottles. Any time an Uber or hotel offers you sealed bottled water, take it, it will cost even more than usual to buy it at such a crowded place like the Louvre.

Most importantly, have fun, looking at art doesn’t have to be boring, look for pieces that call your attention and study them. You might find really awesome “easter eggs” in the paintings and find deeper meaning in them.

Here is how crowded it was when we first arrived. Crazy!

Note: The Mona Lisa is stunning in person but it’s VERY difficult to get anywhere it. If you want to get a photo with her, you have to go around the edges of the crowd and squish yourself in.

Added side note: it’s worth it.

The day that Brendan proposed, he told me to make sure I wore something nice. I didn’t know we were going to a palace but I was excited to see what I could pull together to go to one. Bren has in the past told me to wear something nice specifically because he knew I would want pictures. I really took more time than usual to pick this outfit. 

When traveling it’s essential to pack things you can wear more than once, such as a coat, a hat, sunglasses. Many tourists think they have to sacrifice style for comfort. This is not the case! I wore a white cotton off the shoulder top, warm wool coat, pants and chiffon pants. 

I was so pleased to see that my outfit seemed to even mimic the colors of the flowers in the garden. 

France was surprisingly chilly but once the sun peeked out it was finally warm enough to go without a jacket. 

I felt really good in this outfit and I even felt glamorous. This might be one of my favorite looks ever. The best part was that none of it was planned!

I made my first Youtube video! I recently purchased a Chanel Grand Shopping Tote and friends have already asked me about what I’m carrying in such a large bag. I’ve always been fond of these videos, so here you go!

I have always wanted to create a YouTube channel of my own so this is a very exciting time! I hope you enjoy checking out my debut vlog. Although my channel is still in the early stages, I have lots of fun plans for future videos so please stay tuned.

Ultimately, if you want to get ahead of the competition on YouTube, then you need to make sure that you post regular and engaging content. Furthermore, it is no secret that the number of views your videos can get makes a huge difference to the popularity of your channel too.

One of my friends recently recommended that I check out Get Fans to give my YouTube views a boost. Their website (https://getfans.io/buy-youtube-views) is filled with lots of useful information so I am going to have to do some research before posting my next video. What kinds of videos would you like to see from me next? I would love to know!

What do you have in your bag?

Every so often I get struck with wanting all white clothing. It’s a very rare occurrence but when it does happen, it seems like I go all out. Today was a very low kew day, I went to the bookstore and coffee shop. Very relaxing through and through. Many of you have asked me what I wear on my “day off”. This is a key example. I can be a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl, but I do it just a little differently. 

Outfit Details: 

Shirt: Helmut Lang

Pants: Hudson

Shoes: Rosina Ferraggamo 

Purse: Chanel classic double flap

Sunglasses: DIor
