Paris. The city that has inspired poets and artists for centuries, with its iconic art and architecture, cafe culture and air of romance, has also inspired three overworked sisters-in-law; mothers to 9 1/2 children between us, to get off the treadmill of life for a long weekend and embark on the ultimate girls getaway.
To celebrate our love affair with the city of lights, we indulged ourselves however briefly in everything from chocolate crepes to smooth local wine, sleeping in, facials, steam rooms, poring over original Monets and Van Gogh’s and the odd bit (ok…hours!) of interruption-free shopping. I still pinch myself wondering how we were able to pull this one off. If you’re planning your own trip soon, here are a few recommendations:
Sleep: Hotel Du Collectionneur
Visit: Musee D’Orsay
Eat: Cafe Du Commerce (Ainsley’s reco! Perfect in every way from soup to nuts.)
Onward. This week come join me for 3 fun and energising workouts:
