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.

Six months ago I was standing here - hot, sweaty, thirsty, hungry, exhausted, bothered by the hoards of people pushing me to get through for their shot inside the #Colosseum. I forgot for a moment where I was and more importantly why I was there.

It's not always easy, but it's most definitely worth it. Live a life that's worth the trouble. ?
I've found that those who work hard are motivated by the people who made sacrifices to provide for them, or the people they need to make sacrifices for. 
You see, that's what makes us different - that's what makes you strong. There are people who have been spoon-fed all their lives and thus have no clue as to what makes them happy. There's no drive. How can money motivate you if you've already got it?

You have no control over how you were born, or how you were raised, but you do have control over your perspective. You'll come to see that everything you think happened to you was actually happening FOR you. ?

So what motivates you?
The older I get the more I realize that nothing will ever go according to your plan. Every time I feel like I'm headed somewhere, I'm knocked into a different direction wondering where the h - ll I'm going next. It just isn't enough to feel completely secure about your future if you're constantly doubting yourself. I have no idea where I'm going to end up or how I'm going to get there, but I'm moving. Slowly, maybe, but with passion, conviction - and with a dream worth more to me than the empty riches of this world. You'll make mistakes and you'll learn from them. You'll think you've failed and realize it was meant to be that way. You'll love and lose, someone or everything all at once.

But at the end of it all, you'll realize that everything will be okay. ?
I don't want to be perfect. I want to be just as I am.
You can tell the size of a man by the size of the things that bother him. With ? | photo by @samsal
Don't be afraid to walk away from something or someone that holds you back from becoming the person you want to be.

The seasons are changing. So can you. ?
While the rest lay easy, withering away - you're still standing, shining brighter than ever.

Your scars are what makes you beautiful. ?
Allow the world to remind you of how beautiful the life you live can be. ?

Dream with the dreamers and invent things you never knew you had in you. Think with the thinkers and discover ideas that mold who you are. Smile at strangers and make friends that last a life time. Travel with travelers and explore a life beyond your imagination. Love only one and grow old with your best friend. Let these things bring fire to your soul, so when you look back at your life, you'll have no regrets and you can leave this place a little better than when you found it. - @rmdrk

Postcard from #Iceland ?
Get out of your head and get out in this world. It's waiting for you. 
With love, from #Iceland ?
Fresh prosciutto, mozzarella, and tomatoes in #Cannes. ?
Last night I joined my sister @amy_marietta to celebrate genuine people & the launch of an amazing skincare brand @rescueskin at the #rescuepopup. It's nights like these that remind me to keep pushing. Hard work pays off. ?
