My Adventure In Paris

Next Stop: Finding Stan a Cup of Tea. 
My boyfriend Stan had being going on about a cup of tea for hours, i've always been more of a black coffee person so i was surviving quite well, there is a Starbucks every 10 minutes in the town center thankfully. But after walking around for good hour we come across something wonderful, 'Tea by The'. The closest thing to a cup of tea that we were going to get was a Vanilla Earl Grey that had a similar latte froth on top. It was served with a straw, very strange. But i was a lot more impressed with the cup. Beautiful logo, great name ('Tea' in English, 'The' the French translation. Seeing as Tea is an English thing i assumed that this name basically meant...Tea by the French. And may i add they did a wonderful job.), and an even better typeface. I like things clean. 





My Adventure In Paris

Next Stop: The Most Beautiful Metro Station You Will Ever See.
So we had left the Louvre because of an insane amount of tourists, which we were not enjoying, and decided to take a walk around a nicer part of Paris. As the sound of a string quartet emerged i caught a glimpse of something extraordinary. The most beautiful metro station you will ever see, the photos do not do it any justice. You could see it from a fair distance, and would probably give any English Magpie a heart attack.

Next Stop: Garden Sculptures.
On my way up to the Louvre i came across the most beautiful selection of what looked like giant flowers if seen through the eyes of someone on a drug induced 'trip'. After taking a few photos i did some research into the artist, who was none other than Japanese artist and writer Yayoi Kusama. Definitely someone for the sketchbook.
