Even on a semi cloudy day Paris is still such a beautiful city! I took a Eurostar train to Paris
from London and had the time of my life! The amazing architecture, shopping, dining,
and night life had me smiling the entire time. Let me just say that shopping overseas was
insanely amazing. It's their season of "Summer Sales" and the sale dates are set by the government. Stores are offering sale items up to 70% off. Think of it as an American
Black Friday for a week long...pretty good, I know. :)

Such class and beauty...the view from my Parisian hotel.

Paris' "Love Locks" on a bridge over the Seine River.

I had a great time overseas, but nothing can compare to the simple things about
the "States" that I love and missed so much while I was away. But with that, traveling opens
your eyes to other cultures, and I can't wait to see more of the world. Until next time, au revoir!

While in London, I celebrated my birthday!

Overlooking a breathtaking night view of the city, my friends and I enjoyed dinner at Paramount Restaurant. I had asparagus soup, lamb, and a trio of sorbet! It was beyond delicious.

I posted this photo to my Instagram account...
I had no idea that they were going to bring out a candle with my dessert.
My sneaky friends planned it all lol I love those girls to pieces! :)

After dinner we went to the Viewing Gallery, a cocktail and champagne bar located
above the restaurant. I opted for a mini shoot in the staircase leading up to the venue,
with this insane artwork behind me.

I wore a vintage beaded and sequined dress with black pumps and pearl accessories. This dress, like many other vintage pieces in my closet, has been just sitting and waiting for the
perfect night out. I'm happy that it had it's "first go 'round" in London.

If you're in London for the Olympic Games, please visit Paramount! You'll absolutely love it!!!



Hey all! If you follow me on Instagram, handle KrystleMii, you already know that I recently 
visited London, England and Paris, France. I have so many photos that I would love to share
with you guys from my trip BUT I don't want to overload you with my amature photography
and touristy photos. With that being said, I'll do a series of 3 posts that will include few pics
from both London and Paris. In this post, let's talk London!

I had an amazing time sight seeing, shopping in Oxford Circus, and just walking the streets of London . It was exciting to see all of the preparations being made for the 2012 Olympic games. GO USA! Unfortunately, the weather kind of put a damper on my hopes of getting great shots of certain landmarks. It was cold and rainy so I settled for a boat tour of the city on the Thames River. So if you see any water droplets in the photos, that's why. In the picture below, I was very comfy in my jeans, thrifted oversized blouse, vintage Ked's, and Forever 21 scarf.

Loved this! A blue painted phone booth with a mirrored silouhette of a shapely Queen!
I truly believe that this was made for me.
