Now that I finally posted pics of the wedding I can finally share some of my honeymoon photos with y'all!!! I LOVED planning my honeymoon because it was seriously a dream come true. Paul had never been to Europe and after I went with girlfriends several years back, I always wanted to return with him. It was seriously the best trip I have ever taken in my entire life and I just feel lucky that I got to experience it and that I get to share it with you!
We chose Paris, France and Venice, Italy for our trip because they are both romantic cities and places we have always talked about visiting! I have been to Paris but not Venice so the second leg of the trip was super exciting for me.
So first stop...Paris! We left the day after our wedding, which in hindsight I realize wasn't a great idea haha. We were pretty exhausted but luckily we were able to sleep in because we took a red eye flight so we'd end up in Paris Monday morning. We slept on the plane as much as we could and arrived at our hotel in the early afternoon.
THIS...is our friggin ADORABLE hotel - Hotel Le 123 Sebastopol - Astotel.
It was movie themed and so cute I had to take pics to share with you!
They had a "tea time" every day with coffee and tea and DESSERT. Here commences my journey into a week full of bread, chocolate, cookies, pastries, croissants, and all of the other wonderful carbs that exist in the world. #HEAVEN And how cute is our room?! This little vanity was claimed by me right away haha! I wish I could've fit this chair and mirror in my suitcase to take home. Although even if I could have it probably would have been frowned upon by the hotel owners right? =P
So we got to our hotel and said we were going to take a "little nap" because I booked a tour of the Eiffel Tower at 4:30 p.m. This little nap turned into a very deep sleep that we woke up from around 3:30p.m. WOOPS. So we missed the tour and I felt like a zombie but we headed over to the Eiffel Tower to just see it and hang out before we went to visit my cousin and her family who live in Paris. It was just as beautiful as ever! I also planned my #OOTD around it so I insisted we go even though we were exhausted. If you're wondering...yes I planned every single outfit like 6 months prior to even going on the trip. LOL. I feel bad for myself.
My first Paris #OOTD

Now for Day 2! Our first breakfast in Paris was at this lovely little cafe called Republique of Coffee. Paul had pancakes and eggs and I had avocado toast with pomegranate. OMG AMAZING. Also the iced cappuccino was to die for! Oh I also took a chocolate croissant to go, don't judge.
Next stop, the Palace of Versailles! It was my second time visiting and Paul's first and he loved it! This is one of my favorite places in the world!
At night we had tickets to see a show at the Moulin Rouge, which has been on my bucket list for YEARS. Of course, I had to wear a red dress for the occasion. I got this on Amazon as well because I have an amazon shopping issue =P
Me in front of the cute piano in the lobby of our hotel!
The only picture I was able to take and this was before we got in the actual theater because photography is banned. But how cute is this?
So beautiful at night. I loved every minute of being there although I have to admit the show wasn't spectacular as I had imagined it would be. I loved the decor and the music and the side acts but the actual Moulin Rouge dancers all looked like model clones of one another who had mediocre dance skills. It felt like they were chosen more for their body type rather than talent. This made me sad but it is what it is and I have no regrets about going to the show!
Day 3 in Paris - DISNEYLAND!!!!!!
My outfit matched this cute little dessert shop on Main Street! So of course, I had to take a pic!
Dress: Bonnechance Collections
Shoes: Chase & Chloe
Ears: Shop House of Mouse on Etsy
Had to give you a close up of my macaron ears from Shop House of Mouse on Etsy! Jess is by far one of the most talented ladies I know and I love everything she makes! The pin is from my shop!
Even in Paris I lose to Paul in this dang game.
Why can't you see my face in this pic? WELL.....I was TERRIFIED. LOL I go on Space Mountain all the time at home but I had never been on this one and I read that there was a loop in it and I was so panicky before we went on the ride I almost walked out of line. Yes, I'm a scaredy cat! I didn't look up during most of the ride and now I regret it because it was shorter than our Space Mountain and was really not bad at all.
