Say hello to Paris and three of the city’s most magnificent hotels.

HOTEL: SHANGRI-LA HOTEL
LOCATION: TROCADERO
WHY IT’S AWESOME: GET THE ROYAL TREATMENT

Once the former home of Napoleon Bonaparte’s grandnephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, the Shangri-La Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels in Paris. But I’ll just let the photos do the talking.

You walk in past the lobby and your eyes don’t know where look next – marble floors and columns, sculptures and original ornate mouldings.

We explored the hotel for almost an hour, soaking in each room – each one telling a different story.

And then we came into this banquet room – quite possibly the most beautiful room I’ve ever been to in my life.

The hotel has 8 suites that overlook the Eiffel Tower. This was only one of them.

HOTEL: L’HOTEL
LOCATION: SAINT GERMAIN
WHY IT’S AWESOME: FULL OF OLD WORLD GLAMOUR; FOR THE ART ENTHUSIAST

Situated in the heart of the Left Bank, L’hotel was once home to Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde. I felt like I had just stepped into a time machine, with the hotel oozing old world French glamour, surrounded by original artwork and ornate accent decor.

Enter, lobby.

The most magnificent part of this hotel was the spiral staircase, smothered in leopard, winding all the way down to the lobby.

You walk outside and you’re surrounded by art galleries. The hotel is on Rue Des Beaux-Arts – there are charming cafes, bookstores and designer shops everywhere. It’s quiet enough during the day (silent at night) in the neighborhood, perfect for sleeping in and cozying up with your loved ones. You’re also only a few blocks south of the Seine River, so a quick hop skip over the bridge (about a 4 minute walk) and you’re at the Louvre (READ: How I spent my first four days in Paris).

The rooms are moody, filled with antique furniture. It’s a tad bit dark, but doesn’t that just make the whole place that much more romantic?

Velvet bed. Cherry wood everything. The bathroom was just as glamorous, with a separate closet for la toilette.

The staff is attentive, polite and we were extremely well taken care of our entire stay.

HOTEL: HOTEL VERNEUIL
LOCATION: SAINT GERMAIN
WHY IT’S AWESOME: MODERN STYLE + CHARMING COMFORT


There was a sense of comfort walking into Hotel Verneuil. I don’t know if it was the cozy lobby or the bright, clean room we stayed in, but I found myself lazier and lazier the longer I stayed.

The rooms are clean, yet charming with a mix of modern touches and classic accents.

As soon as I hit the bed I did not want to get up.

I saw the bathroom, filled with L’Occitane products and did not want to leave.

Six hours later, I’m picking up my fringe key, take a minute to enjoy the breeze on the balcony, ready to explore the neighborhood of Saint Germain.

There are moments when I wish the world would stop so I could stop moving. There are moments when I get so overwhelmed that all I want to do is quit. There are moments when I am so tired that I cannot even rest.  And in these moments, I look back only to see how far I've come. And the road ahead is not short, it's not easy and sometimes I have no idea where I'm going.  People have failed me when I needed them the most. Those who I never looked twice at ended up becoming the best friends I've ever had. I've made more mistakes in my life than I can count. But you've got to know that you're not alone.  And even if you have no one paying your bills, no one who believes in your dreams, no one to pull you up when you are down, no one to call when you're crying yourself to sleep at night - you have to know that you are going to be okay.  And that this period of time when you think you've got it the worst, is exactly what you need to go through to find the strength to live the life you've always dreamed of - the life that you deserve. Don't ever give up on yourself. ?
Sky above me. City below me. Fire within.

If only my heart could speak the words my mind wants to say; if only my mind could stay silent instead of getting in the way.

Life is not meant to be perfect, and neither are we. We're born to be imperfect, bred to be passionate, more or less placed in uncomfortable situations to become who we're meant to be through this journey - unique, full of soul, adorned with scars healed through tears carrying hearts filled with love. #morningxmusings ?
Sometimes I wish that I could tell my head to get out of my heart, and my heart to get out of my head. Maybe then I'd do what's best for me.
You cannot be afraid to fall, stumble, scrape your knees, sink beyond your comfort zone. You have to drown out the voices of doubt, swallow your pride, and forgive yourself when you make mistakes along the way. Because you will. You cannot let the fear of failure prevent you from following your dreams. Because if you do give into your fears, you will be safe - grounded. You will be comfortable. But if you do not jump, remember one thing - you will NEVER be able to fly.

Never lose hope. ?
The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow.

A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.
Create like a god. Command like a king. Work like a slave.
If you only care about money, you might as well settle for a boring job with a steady paycheck. The most successful people risked everything they had to get where they are. Money is an illusion - it comes and goes. Your legacy is forever. - Mark Zuckerberg
