Salut à Paris!

Alright, I'm not gonna lie. When I found out I was going to spend the fall in Paris interning at Ogilvy, Sofia Coppola's spot for Miss Dior Cherie ran through my mind. 

Trade in the sundress for some boots and a cardigan, and boom - here I am. Carefree strolls through a world-renowned city of regal architecture, dainty pastries, high fashion, and whimsical landmarks? 

Uh, yes please.

While on one of my adventures, I stumbled upon an amazing little cafe called Tuck Shop (I could go on and on about this place but I won't - it's utter perfection in my book). While I was enjoying my avocado sweet chili toastie, I flipped through their stack of old magazines and saw this quote:

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.
— Roald Dahl

Clearly Mr. Dahl hadn't spent time in Paris, because this shit is in-your-face magical. Everyday, I'm trying to resist the urge to go full-blown tourist snapping pictures nonstop. So here's a little Parisian magic below from some moments I just couldn't resist... Profitez!
