My Stay in Hotel de Nell Paris

My Stay in Hotel de Nell Paris

Oh, how I miss Paris! Now that I’ve been back in Groningen, in the real world, I can’t wait to plan my next trip again. Although I would like to visit a different city, I wouldn’t mind to visit Paris again too… Especially because I had such a pleasurable stay there. One of the hotels I stayed at was Hotel de Nell. It’s a relaxed and chic luxury 5-star hotel, located in the city centre of Paris.

Le Palais Royal Paris

Le Palais Royal Paris

One of my favorite spots (especially for outfit shooting) in Paris is Le Palais Royal. It such an unique location in my opinion; old and new architecture blending together into something stunningly beautiful. In a way, it represented the mindstate I had during my stay in Paris: old and new memories blending together, creating a different dimension to me. I’m still figuring everything out when it comes to that, but hopefully pieces are going to fall in their places soon. And yes, I wanted to wear stripes to match the location perfectly, haha! I think these photos turned out great and I can’t wait to show you it ‘in motion’ in my upcoming video as well that I will be posting tonight…

My Instagram Vegan & Vegetarian Hotspot Guide To Paris

My Instagram Vegan & Vegetarian Hotspot Guide To Paris

I think all my blogger and Instagram babes can relate: you’re planning a trip, and the first thought that pops into your head is ‘where can I find the cutest Instagram hotspots here?’… Although sites like TripAdvisor etc. can help, but they tell you nothing about the Instagrammability (lol I think I just made that word up) of the places you’re thinking of visiting. That’s why I wanted to do an Instagram Hotspot Guide to Paris, because who doesn’t want to take the perfect pictures in the cutest food hotspots there? So if you want to know where I took all my pictures on Instagram during my trip to Paris, keep reading (and the food of these places was also bomb.com, so this guide is also perfect for all my non-influencer babes!).

Jean-Paul Sartre and the Pont Des Arts

Jean-Paul Sartre and the Pont Des Arts

It’s strange to realize how certain places can seem so ordinary to some, while be so extraordinary to others, all at once. For some people the ‘Pont des Arts’ can seem like a regular bridge in Paris, while to other people it can feel like they are being teleported back to other times. That’s how I felt when I was walking passed this bridge, and realizing that my favorite philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre must have done the same thing, yet centuries ago. The fact that I was standing at the same spot where he would’ve talked, walked and thought, while reading his Nausea, was mind-blowing to me. It made me reflect on the past years of my life too. A long time ago, I discovered his existentialistic philosophy, which made me change my life completely. And even now that I am way older, I still have some difficulties implementing his philosophy into my life. I know this may not seem a topic that’s for everybody, but trust me; you need to continue reading this, because I feel like it will help you with your life too.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Avenue des Champs-Élysées

Paris, you were intense. I guess that’s the only word I’m able to describe you with. And no, not only the life threatening way I had to take these photos on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in front of the Arc de Triomphe. I feel like this trip could be best described by psychedelic experience (= Ancient Greek words ψυχή – psychē, and dēloun – δηλοῦν, translating to mind-revealing). Strolling through the tiny streets in Paris while constantly getting these vivid flashback to certain memories I had during my lifetime; it was like the past and the present were simultaniously existing, and melted together into a new reality. Like living a life, within a life, or a dream, within a dream. I literally didn’t know how to feel. Should I be happy or sad, reminiscing or forgetting, missing or letting go?
