So recently I’ve been traveling so much, Traveling has literally been my aphrodisiac this summer. It’s been making me feel so happy and alive just seeing different parts of the world. Jennifer and me decided to visit Paris again this year. So we booked it and off we went. We got a super early flight from Luton!! I am talking 7,00am, guys never get an early flight ever! HOW IS ONE SUPPOSING TO DO AIRPORT CHIC? You can’t be in the airport with puffy eyes and chapped skin! That’s never cute.
Anyways we got on our flight safe and sound. I remember our last trip, for some foolish reason we decided to take the coach to Paris. I can’t even explain how painful the trip was. It literally felt like I was on the titanic. Anyways unlike the coach it never took 10 HOURS!!! It took only 55 minutes. We were up and down so fast, that I didn’t even get to listen to all of Gucci Mane’s new mix tape.
We arrive in the beautiful city of Paris, like always I wore the wrong airport outfit. I had on my Adidas tracksuit with my fedora hat. I looked like I was in Run DMC! Our lovely driver from Blacklane cars was arrived already waiting for us to drop us to our first destination. The driver was amazing and so helpful and sweet. Did I mention the car was a brand new luxurious black Mercedes, I felt like Naomi Campbell strutting to my car.
We finally arrived at our hotel the beautiful Hotel Da Vinci, which was located in the most beautiful part of central Paris. Hotel Da Vinci looks so stunning from the outside, it really has this vintage boutique feel about it. We pressed the button to open the door and made our way to reception. As soon as we walked in the hotel manager shouted “ThePlasticBoy” I couldn’t stop smiling like “OMG” how sweet is that, she obviously remembered my face from my blog and the emails we had exchanged previously before my visit. Our welcome was one of the warmest welcomes I had ever received, We were seen to straight away by the lovely receptionist and told everything we needed to know about the hotel and when we could use their beautiful spa. The receptionist also told us the best places to eat and shop near our hotel, which was lovely.
We then made our way to our room, which was on the 4th floor, the hotel made sure our luggage was delivered to us after we settled in our rooms. The room was stunning it was just the right size for Jen and me. Our twin beds looked so bouncy and soft and the bathroom looked so crisp and luxurious. The hotel even got us a bottle of Prosecco as a welcome gift, which made my day! I just couldn’t believe how beautiful the hotel was and the service we had already received. It was definitely 10/10 from us already. Because Hotel Da Vinci is a boutique hotel each guest had to book their time for the spa/pool which was an hour, we decided to book ours for 8pm as we wanted to do some shopping and come back before we went out in the night.
We explored Paris but before we went to any store we had to visit Colette. I tried to go before the last time we were in Paris but it was closed sadly. So I was super over the moon it was open the day we decided to go. Colette reminds me of Dover Street Market in London except its way easier to get around and the staff are way more helpful (No Shade) I literally fell In love with everything in store, It has everything you can think of from I-watches to Magazines to Fendi & much more. Colette even has a beauty section where you can find such brands like Balmain hair care and Topshop makeup.
We then popped into Mac and I spent like 60 euros on lipsticks LOL! But they were worth it obviously because they were from the new matte collection. Then we headed to Monki and An Other Stories. I didn’t see anything that cute though but I did get a cute oversized white shirt in Monki, which was perfection.
Me and Jen then decided to head back to the hotel to indulge in our spa session for the evening before we went out. The spa had to be my favourite part of the hotel. It was just so relaxing, It was located on the bottom floor of the hotel and we had the pool all to ourselves which was amazing. The pool had different jets, which we could control if we wanted to be massaged under water. It was so much fun but we only had 1 hour down their which went by so quickly.
I felt that breakfast at Hotel Da Vinci was so lovely, we sat down with all the other hotel guest but I didn’t feel like we were to close to anybody. It’s a very intimate breakfast but there’s a lot of space. The hotel provided fresh pastries with a selection of mouth watering bacon and eggs. I was impressed with the breakfast because I’m not usually a fan of Parisian breakfasts because their so simple but this one was perfect.
I just want to say a huge thank you to the team at Hotel Da Vinci, you made our stay beautiful and relaxed. I will defiantly be staying at you’re hotel again in the near future. Check them out here guys!!!
Plus before I left I had to try out the bath! It was gorgeous!!! Not sure why I took a bath 30 minutes before checkout but it was totally worth it!! P.S Thanks Jen for taking the sexual photos of me HA!!!
