Paris: Simply Irresistible in Red, Black, and White

Today I am joining Anita, the sweet heart from Castles Crowns and Cottages, for the Paris: Simple Irresistible link party!

It is about all the wonderful things that make Paris so special to each one of us.


I think Paris has a special meaning that is different to each individual based on unique experiences and memories that we create there. To me, the beauty of the city spoke to me the most. Everywhere you look you see the most amazing architecture. And here are other things that really made Paris to me...



Fashion




















sweet treats





Notre Dame





macarons and espresso


cafes





that beautiful architecture








boat rides on the Seine














shopping





and of course, the Eiffel Tower!



And those are some of the things that make Paris irresistible to me.


There are many blogs linking up, so visit Anita's, then browse other blogs and follow the party!

A lovely collection, I'd love to see this side of Paris, I last went when I was 12 and I didn't enjoy it at all... it felt dirty and dark.

Oh my goodness.....this is SIMPLY IRRESISTIBLE MY DEAR!!! AND YOU FOUND IMAGES IN THIS LOVELY ORANGE SIGNATURE SHADE OF YOURS!!! OH I AM SO IMPRESSED that you TOO love FOX TERRIERS! THEY ARE MY FAVORITE!!! When I was in Paris, I met up with one that inspired me to write my poem about a scrappy little guy on La Rue St. Honoré...it was pure magic being in Paris with my husband. Paris brings out the child in me to DREAM AND PLAY and thank YOU for playing along with me today. HAVE A BLAST VISITING EVERYONE if you can!!!! BISES and much affection, Anita

Oh paris, how I miss thee. I try to go to Paris every 6 months and this post just reminds me I need to go soon.

Paris? I have been there several times when I was still a student and maybe that's why the atmosphere hanging in the 'Quartier Latin' is what I loved most. Something else? Yeah! Mont Martre, all the artists, pretty views, great little corners; and Musée d'Orsay, not as big as the Louvre, which is a terrific museum, but again it's the atmosphere of places that always keep me by, even after all those years. I haven't been in Paris for such a very very very very VERY... TOO long time.
Bye,
Marian

About Last Weekend said...

Paris is everything you ever thought it would be and more. The first time I ever saw the Eiffel Tower, it was so iconic I could barely believe how beautiful it was...
