Paris in a Day: Part 2

After spending most of the day sightseeing, it was on to the good stuff--shopping and food!

We had lunch at Fauchon and were mesmerized at their selection of gourmet desserts, caviar, jams, candies and chocolates. 

We also window shopped at Galeries Lafayette where I sadly left behind a pair of Chanel flats.  We had our evening meal at the cafe on the upper floor with a lovely view of the Eiffel tower in the distance.

One of my favorite vacation purchases from the Longchamp store--a nice little reminder of Paris.

And last but not least, despite the long line, we made it to the famed Laduree bakery for some macarons.

Delicate flavors like blackcurrent, rose water, piscachio, hazelnut, sea salt caramel and lavender.


  1. It looks like you all had a great time! Those macaroons look delicious!!

    I have been eating my candy and trying to prevent Mike from eating them all. AND that truffle balsamic sauce. Delicious!

  2. So sorry about your flats.:(

  3. Lisa I blame your brother for not getting me those flats! (also the bad US-Euro exchange rate!)

  4. I haven't been able to comment on each post but I wanted you to know how much I've enjoyed living vicariously through you. I loved all the pictures of your trip!!
