Photo Journal of Paris

East Coast Mermaid Photo Journal of Paris

A year ago, I embarked on the greatest adventure of my life and after a quick stop in Iceland (for the most magical time at the Blue Lagoon) I landed in Paris after a lifetime of dreaming about it. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about that trip and long for a fresh baguette and a cafe au lait under the Eiffel Tower.

Today, I thought I’d share some of the unseen photos from my trip that I still scroll through on my phone with hearts in my eyes.

If you love Paris, hopefully this post will bring you back too!

Paris was everything I dreamed it to be and then some, which is probably why it still feels so magical a year later and will stay with me always (or at least until my next visit!)

Love Paris too? I’d love to hear what your favorite spot in Paris is!

Today I’m off camping in the woods with some best friends – follow along on Snapchat (crystalcrichard) or on Instagram @crystal_catherine! Have an awesome weekend! x

    Aww Paris. Je t’aime!
    Lovely pictures :) I actually have a picture with the same bookstore from my trip in 2010!
    It’s oh so dreamy.
