Ohhh La La, My Trip To Paris

Hello My Lovelies,

It's been a few days since i last posted, i've been really busy getting ready for my trip to Paris, sorting out personal things and i havent been feeling too good the last few days, but i'm back tonight with a post about my Trip To Paris :)

Not all of my newer followers will know but a few months ago i won a competition through Impulse on Facebook. You had to upload a picture of yourself looking 'Glamorous' to promote their 'Into Glamour' body spray. I can't even remember how i found it but it was somehow on my timeline so though 'Why Not?!'. The weekend before was my cousins 18th Birthday party so we all got dressed up really glamourous and really made an effort so i thought i'd upload a picture from that night. So i uploaded the picture and though nothing of it, i've never won anything before in my life so simply assumed i wouldn't win again haha

So, a few days later the competition ended and i got an email through i'd won the competition. At first i was like 'What's This?!' because sometimes you can get spam and all sorts :L but then Impulse announced it on their Facebook page and i couldn't believe it! I won two tickets to Paris and to have Lunch in Paris on a really luxurious tour boat.

So, my trip was yesterday and i got back early this morning and i am still totally exhausted, theirs so much to do in Paris in one day haha So i thought i would upload a few photos from the trip and show you what i experienced :)

This is a picture of me and my cousin Carmela. This was taken before we got to Paris whilst we still looked pretty decent before traveling haha. These huge mirrors were calling our names and we couldn't resist a Photo Op ;)
