Paris : via Instagram.

Sunday, 29 July 2012

1. An impeccably dressed lady casually strolling Paris on her bike in Louboutins (as you do!) // 2. Survived the massive trek that was the Louvre // 3. Laduree Paris - where macaron dreams come true // 4. Frolicking in the Tuileries Garden // 5. Rose petal ice cream that is an artwork even before reaching the palate // 6. Jardin du Luxembourg - only in Paris will you stumble upon a 'garden' and find a palace! // 7. Paris Opera - where the Phantom originated // 8. The most delicious mussels gratin that I now crave for incessantly // 9. Pierre Herme macarons (which are absolutely divine!)

With my limited photography skills, I constantly feel that the images I take of the beautiful places I visit simply do not serve the moment any justice - in some ways, I think Instagram certainly has revolutionised my ability to encapsulate the moment a little more accurately! 

Love, Mandy. xx

Of late, I have been so busy chasing my dreams that I have barely had time to breathe, let alone scribble a blog post! In the time since my last post, I have covered three countries across Europe, started a placement in my dream department (Ophthalmology) and as I found out today, have passed all my med school exams and will officially be a doctor as of next year! Thank you to everyone who has shared this incredible journey with me!

Apologies for the brevity of this post but I am now off to celebrate with some high tea at Harrods! ;) Have an absolutely stunning week everyone. <3  

Much love, Mandy. xx

I am currently writing this from my hotel room in Paris and after two days of traipsing around its labyrinthine streets and lush jardins, these photos taken in a break during my exam block seems like worlds away from my current existence of impeccably dressed people, gorgeous scenery and macarons that taste as whimsical as they look.

Whilst I absolutely adore this city, internet here seems to be quite erratic and I somehow find myself breaching my personal goal to write more regularly since exams yet again! 

If you want to follow all my Parisian adventures, you can follow me on Instagram (frocks_frivolities). 

Much love, Mandy. xx
