...London and Paris!
Yes. *twirls around and around*
In 14 days, I will be heading across the pond. My dear friend, Melenese, lives in London and her birthday gift to me this year was a trip to spend a few days as her guest. Surely, The Queen awaits my arrival. Ha! Firstly, how great of a friend is Mel? I've been breathless since I received the news. I've been wondering what should I bring? What will we do? Where will we go?
When I tell you that I've become obsessed; that's an understatement. I've always admired how perfectly (and effortlessly) chic the women in Europe always seem to be. I couldn't WAIT to pick the brain of the dear Kayln about what I should bring. She was so gracious and provided thoughtful feedback here.
With the exception of a crisp white shirt (which, with the change in seasons, I needed to get anyway), I am going to shop my closet.
You see, friends...this trip is all about the experience AND will be budget-friendly. I refuse to spend unnecessary money (especially with The Boy just getting settled in for his freshman year and my empire-building) preparing for the trip. The dear Mel has forbidden me, too.
So here goes...Country Goes To London/Paris. I shall chronicle my experiences here. I've my point/shoot camera, Flip camera and MacBook Pro.
Watch out, Brits and Parisians, here I come.
If you've ever been to either city, what shouldn't I miss?
