In exactly one week Ted and I will be traveling to Europe. Our first stop is London, followed by Munich, Brussels and the grande finale in Paris. I visited Paris when I was younger... I am so excited to finally return.

I wish I could pack for 10 days in a carry on but it's just not happening. I'll be consolidating as much as possible this weekend. Lots of basics and black. I have failed to do much research on what we will actually do upon arrival... any advice would be appreciated. I get overwhelmed each time I start researching... now the trip is almost here!

We will be staying at The Savoy. We are only there for 2 days... so need to make it count. My friend kindly gave me two Oyster cards to load upon arrival.


This is the one city where we have a plan...Oktoberfest. We are meeting up with our friends that live in Germany and a few of our best friends from home. Together we will travel to Brussels and Paris.

We will be staying at an apartment in the Latin Quarter along with our friends Mike and Kate. Croissants, Macaroons. Wine. People watching. I can't wait.

I'll definitely be visiting City Pharma... I have a long list of French beauty products to get my hands on. That I have done my research.

If you have any tips or recommendations.. please, please share! I really appreciated all of the advice before my Charleston trip back in the spring. 


  1. I just went to London for the first time and loved it! It's a very walkable and metro friendly city. If you're into history, I would suggest Westminster Abbey, The British Museum, and the Tower of London. Harrods is the ultimate shopping mecca and you must visit it! Fortnum & Mason is also an incredible and adorable old department store to have tea and buy gourmet goods. To eat, we had two great dinners at Hakkasan and the Square. Both are in the fashionable Mayfair area. Hope this helps!

  2. I love London and the easiest way to see everything in a short amount of time is to take a double decker bus tour. It usually takes about 4 hours and you can see Westminster Abbey, Tower of London, Big Ben/Parliament, Buckingham Palace, etc. Tea is a must. Fortnum & Mason is good as well as The Dorchester. Go to Claridge's Bar for drinks - BEST MARTINI. The Shed in Notting Hill is amazing for lunch or dinner. Windsor Castle & Angelsea Arms in Kensington are great pubs. Cecconi's in Mayfair is delicious for lunch or dinner (owned by Soho House).

    Paris dining: Monsieur Bleu, Bones, Ferdi (drinks), Ralph's, Café de Flore, and Bar Hemingway.

  3. So exciting! I hope you have a blast!
