Beginning of Spring OOTD

It’s been a long time since I actually went outside in Paris to take some photos of the city I love. No matter where I go here, every photo turns out to look like the backdrop of a movie poster in the cinema and it feels amazing being able to appreciate that again.

Something I can never get enough of about the city is the thrift stores here. Two months ago we found this fluffy white coat in a vintage store and I’ve been smitten with it ever since. It’s so soft and so stylish. It makes me feel like both an ice princess and a girl in a hip hop music video at the same time and if that’s not a mood then I don’t know what is.

Paris syndrome hits hard when it comes to apartment hunting, especially when you realize just how competitive it is to find a decent place to live in the city. If you’re a foreigner here there are so many unnecessary hurdles to jump over and so many obstacles put in place that are borderline xenophobic. In this post I’m going to be sharing with you all the steps I had to go through to find my apartment in the city centre. Brace yourselves, it’s gonna be a long one.

Modelling in Paris

 

In today’s video I got to model in a photo studio in Montmartre with some of my friends. Honestly it was a crazy experience because I’ve had so many opportunities to do little modelling jobs here and there in Paris and A LOT of them involved me standing out in the cold for hours, shivering between changing outfits. It felt so good to be warm inside a photo studio!

You’ll see in this video that we played a lot with different lighting, poses and effects to create the best portrait photo. I really hope you enjoy! I’m going to leave the photos down below so you guys can see the result of the photoshoot.

Studying in Paris

Let’s Talk About University! My Experiences Studying in Dublin VS Paris

IMG_5907

Recently on facebook I saw pictures from my old classmates that they had graduated college in Ireland. I had no idea that the graduation season was upon us already but congratulations to anyone who got their degree!

Unfortunately graduation isn’t really a big event in France. There’s no celebration where you dress up and wear the cute hats and old-timey cloaks. Nothing is really organised within the university as a big event, or at least not by the university anyway. You basically just finish your exams in May, hope to get your degree in the post over the summer and off you go.

Ive been studying in Paris for two years now and this year marks my final year. Today I decided to make a post about what its like studying in France since its basically taking up my whole life recently. Hopefully if any of you are thinking about studying abroad or are just curious, the post will help you out!
