I present to you my latest purchase… I’m quite thrilled about it. 
This is the first time I’ve ever bought an antiquité; I got it from a bouquiniste in one of the boîtes vertes located on the banks of the Seine.
The book is an edition from 1951 and it’s the first real book in french I’m ready to read.
I’ve always loved the 18th century and the French Revolution, but I’m not gonna say I know much about it {I love History but I suck at it}, so I’m really looking forward to re-learn many things through this beautiful french book :)
PS. I also got a box of Macarons from Ladurée with a Matthew Williamson design special for PFW, but I’ll show you that later ;)
Gros Bisous!

Versailles part 6 » Le Château et ses Jardins

Finally!! The last post of the “Versailles series” lol
Now I can go on to spam you with new Parisian wonderfulness :D

{Don’t get me wrong I love Versailles and will go back soon [be prepared] but even I have to admit that I went crazy with the photographs… but I can’t help it! :O I’m a camera whore!!} 

So these are just some random shots of the outside of the Château {that’s why I have to go back… to go in!!} and the main Jardins. I hope you like them!

Versailles part 5 » Le Petit Trianon et Le Hameau de la Reine

Again some pictures from Versailles, though these are more focused on the Petit Trianon and the Queen’s Hamlet… it’s just a preview, since there’s so much more to see.
[For some super weird reason, the Petit Trianon was closed to enter the day I went, so I guess it’ll be included in the pictures of the next time I go to Versailles] 

Hope you like them!!

This post will probably be a bit boring for you, since it’s literally just a bunch of repetitive unoriginal pictures of Flo & me in Versailles… but what the heck, I wanna share them with you anyways, enjoy! ^^

Versailles part 2 » Details

If you have seen some of my previous posts, you may have realized that I’m obsessed with details. I love to do a lot of close-up shots showing textures, patterns, just any kind of detail that many times go unnoticed.
{that’s why it’d be a dream to have a macro lense but I can’t currently afford it :(}

Well in Versailles, there is a lot of little details that are worth taking a moment to pay attention to… theres millions of things, and this is just a little hint of them. I would love to provide you with even more shots, but since this is already a long post, let’s keep it this way.

I hope you like it!

These photos are from the Trianons and the gardens. I didn’t get the chance to enter the actual Château de Versailles this time, but I will go soon and of course you can expect another DETAIL POST about it :)

{As you can see, I signaled 3 photos that were taken by my bf :) ever since I moved here, I’ve been trying to infect him with my love for photography, and it’s working! Plus, he’s the one who’s doing all my outfit shots lately, isn’t he becoming great?}
