Gotta do Paris in style.
Iconic, worldly and ever inspiring, few cities in the world can match the timelessness and romantic charm of Paris. To commemorate this iconic city, BLAAX has released a new minimalist watch as an ode to the city. Featuring high-grade stainless steel case, minimalist markings and hands, and genuine leather nude strap, this dazzling unisex watch evokes fashion and style that is truly apropos of its namesake with an affordable price to match. So, here is the top must-do’s worthy of your time in the City of Light!
We all know Paris is world famous for its iconic cuisine and impressive array of delectable culinary options—guaranteed to satisfy any traveler’s taste, from local neighborhood bistros, delicious gastronomy to fine dining at three and four-star Michelin restaurants. Make sure to visit fromageries (cheese shops), patisseries (pastry shops) and boulangeries (bakeries), including Du Pain & Des Idées, and pack yourself a nice picnic along La Seine River for a truly local and Parisian experience.
It goes without saying that Paris leads the world in fashion and international trends, which makes shopping at chic boutiques and established designer brands, to vintage shops and local flea markets a quintessential experience worthy of indulgence. Don’t forget to visit secondhand bookshops, including Shakespeare And Company, and local wine shops as well.
A visit to the City of Light cannot be complete without seeing the iconic Eiffel Tower (tip: make sure to visit at night when the tower is lit up and unquestionably gorgeous to behold), Arc de Triomphe monument, beautiful gothic cathedral of Notre Dame, expansive Champs-Élysées boulevard, and stroll along the scenic La Seine River. Stop by Centre Pompidou for modern and contemporary art, Louvre for world-renowned masterpieces by Renoir, Picasso, Monet, Rodin and others (including the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci); and Musée d’Orsay for Impressionist and post-Impressionist art.
Paris is a city that conjures deep emotions unlike any other city on the world’s stage, regardless if you’re a first-time visitor or longtime denizen. When I think of Paris, intimacy is the most compelling and powerful emotion I take away from it. And despite stereotypes often touted about the city, having lived in Paris for three months I can tell you that there’s a deep sense of community and warmth amongst Parisians that makes venturing into local shops, cafes and markets a pleasurable and worthwhile experience.
It’s a worldly cosmopolitan city with a rich and deeply intimate charm, so much so that even after you leave it stays on your mind, unwilling to let go. Hemingway was right; Paris is truly a “moveable feast,” satisfying in more ways than one.
