Girls, Paris has some exhibitions on right now for us!
It’s the stuff that makes us break into a run in our ‘Louboutins’ (or in my case converse)! Literally it’s a feast for the girl within, from Haute Couture at the Hotel De Ville, to Murano glass at the Musee Maillol and not forgetting the heavenly paintings of Chagall at the Musee du Luxembourg.
Yesterday I queued up with hundreds of other holidaymakers to indulge in the colourful, poetic paintings of Marc Chagall. There are some exhibitions you come away from and the inspiration stays with you for a lifetime, this is how I feel about Chagall. I feel like photographing everyone flying, in bright colours, with a fabulous chicken by their sides. Loving Chagall..
Chagall, Entre Guerre Et Paix
19 Rue de Vaugirard
Metro: Saint Sulpice
Queue Jump: Book online, the day you want to go and walk straight in..
I turned up in Venice for the first time at the age of 21 and it was one of the greatest travel impacts that I have felt to date. It was like being hit over the head with a Gondola, I was in love, in awe and have been ever since. When I returned in my early thirties I walked away with a Murano chandelier and I will be forever in love with their glass.
Sooooooo the exhibition of Murano glass at Musee Maillol has my name and heart all over it.. A must if you are in Paris.
Fragile – Murano, Chefs-d’oeuvre de Venise

I have walked past the queue a thousand times and I am determined to get into the Hotel De Ville and see those frocks! This exhibition was made for me and probably you. There is no town like Paris that can claim a history of Haute Couture and thanks to the couturiers and the Hotel De Ville they have gathered all the silk, embroidery, glamour and FROCKS under the one roof..
Hotel De Ville

So girls, if you are lucky enough to be in Paris in the coming months put your walking shoes on and revel in see some of Paris’s most inspiring exhibitions to date..Yipeeee
