One of the best meals I've had in my life! Detour in the 9th arrondissement gave me the best food highlight of the year! Like, holy shoooooots guys! If you're ever in Paris this is a bistro you can't not go to!

So these Street performers are almost always at the Trocadero around golden hour. After seeing the Eiffel, take time to watch them and sit by the steps at the Trocadero and spend Quarter of an hour watching these guys! They're fun!

How about a five-star happy meal? Sad to be leaving the land of ooh-la-la and va-va-voom, but man... what a way to end a birthday week! Definitely one for the books, particularly due to the amount of great food consumed. This burger, albeit probably one of the most normal things one can have for lunch, was pretty spectacular. Merci beaucoup, Paris. A bientôt! 🍔🇬🇧🐮

It's my birthday month and so I will be sharing some of my faves in this channel! First, let me tell you about Saint Tropez. Known as its glamorous style, I like this quaint French Riviera town best in daylight when it's slightly sleepy and it's just plain beautiful without the glitter. There's something peaceful about this pretty seaside town without the parties, where everyone is living a slow life and everyone smiles a very patient and sincere smile. And that's when things are at their best, you know? When it's stripped bare for all the world to see. Just pure, naked beauty.

October is just around the corner which means I'm turning a year older. And though getting ID-ed is annoying, I hate feeling old AND looking old. Here are two of my holy grail beauty products that I feel I'm going to love for the rest of my life... until the next generation batch comes along!

Do you guys like skincare too?

Cheers to the weekend, folks!
Old rustic setting that offers authentic Korean dishes. The Korean deep fried chicken paired with Asahi, and Bibimbab.

Must try - Toppikki rice cake fried in a spicy Korean sauce to give the crunch on the outside while keeping the chewy rice cake feeling on the inside.

Hello Honey de G, I'm looking to spend a weekend in Edinburgh. What places would you suggest to explore? A mix of the city experiences and a trek could work. Thanks!

Arthur's Seat is beautiful! And the museum of childhood! And Carlton Hill is lively too. Also do a walking tour of Mary King's Close :)
