When in Paris

Unbelievable, but I’m already living for three months in Paris. OMG, can someone stop the time right now, please?!
Before I came to Paris I created a „To-Buy-in-Paris“ list with all the things I would like to buy here for myself. Most of the things on my list you couldn’t buy in Germany or at least it was definitely easier to buy them here. One of my musts haves for a few years now is a KENZO sweater. I just never found the right one and online all the pink and white sweaters were always sold out.
While I was strolling around Galeries Lafayette I discovered this beautiful model. Of course, they didn’t have it in my size anymore but as I already said: in Paris everything is so much easier! I went to the main KENZO store then and when I was in the fitting room, I knew this was the perfect one for me. Because it’s not just a normal sweater from KENZO but it’s more a sweater in Ly style.

Some of you probably have already seen it on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat (ly.hoang), that I had my birthday on the 22nd of March. In fact of this, I got a lot of wish requests. How ironic it is that for 95% I always find the perfect present for my family and friends, but when someone ask me what would I like for birthday I never got a clue. So today I'm going to tell you my secrets how to find the perfect present.
I already mentioned it before that when it comes to me, I love giving gifts more than receiving them. Of course, I also appreciate it when I get one. You should have seen me on Monday. I literally jumped and screamed after opening the present and getting an adapter. I really wanted to have that one actually, nobody wanted to buy it for me. So it was a perfect surprise! I was also very happy about the other presents and I love them all.

Pastel in Madrid

A few weeks ago I decided to travel to a warmer city and left my currently living in city Paris, which is definitely lovely but was also rainy a lot during that time back then. So I got into a plane and about two hours later I landed in Madrid. It felt so good to finally hug my favourite Blondie after a few weeks not seeing again because Julia is doing her abroad semester in Madrid. If it comes to the weather she definitely chose the right city, but, all in all, I love Paris and I would like to stay here forever hihi. Especially since we also have the sun here, but let’s get back to Madrid. Even when Julia is studying there it really felt like a vacation for us. Together we explored a little bit the city, went out twice and, of course, enjoyed the amazing food such like Paella, seafood, drinks, paella and paella…

From Paris With Love

So there we are... Already in week six, which also means that I have seriously lived in Paris for six weeks now. That's almost a third of my whole time... Talking it out loud even is stressing me more than just keeping it in mind. I've literally done nothing so far. I made a thousands of to-do lists and to-buy lists, and a positive thing is that I already could cross a few things out. But besides that, the lists are still very long. What I've done so far in January, I'm going to sum it up for you in my next post.
Today I just want to tell you how I feel about the whole situation. I have to admit that in the beginning it was harder than I expected. Before I came to Paris I already knew that I will need time to enjoy it here. Just because of my experiences with my moves to London and Munich back then. I need time to find out everything but it was more time than I planned to.
