During our trip to Paris, My husband surprised me with a birthday breakfast on the balcony of our hotel- Hotel west end which I might add was very cute, in a fabulous location and excellent staff. And If all of that wasn't enough, it has view of the Eifel tower!
He set up fresh croissants, coffee and orange juice along with fresh macrons from my favourite Laduree. How cute is he?
What a fabulous surprise to start the day with!
He also gave me one of my birthday presents early. We had been "window shopping" the day before when I spotted the cutest Chanel wallet on a chain in the most unusual shade of baby blue. When the sales associate told me it was in fact called Tiffany blue I nearly died.
But instead of opening, I chose to pleasure delay and wait until my actual birthday to open it... but don't worry, I will show it to you!
Really, what more could a birthday girl want! Roses, the Eiffel tower, love heart macrons and Chanel. I am a very lucky girl
It was actual love at first site when I first laid eyes on this, and as the majority of my handbags are pink, nude or black its something a little different to the rest of my collection.
After the loveliest breakfast, we headed to 4th arrondisment- Le marais neighbourhood of Paris which is super cute and full of life and interest.
Its a neighbourhood that's best enjoyed on foot or by bicycle, meandering through the many streets that are lined with small boutiques and cafes â
After coffee at Au rocher de cancale (a total must, and is totally Instagram worthy painted in the most beautiful blue) we strolled through the neighbourhood, stopping at the little vintage boutiques and taking in the sites ...it used to be occupied by aristocrats!

I promise you, you will not be disappointed with a visit to Le Marais! If you haven't been make sure you add it to your Parisian wish list
