Opium is one of those “blink and you could miss it” places. Located amid the hustle and bustle of Chinatown, I actually did miss it on my first few passes. However, once you climb up a few flights of stairs, all the find and seek is well worth it. Here’s why.
Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.
Where To Stay
I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.
London is known for its supercars – especially in the summer, when foreigners ship in exotic, incredibly expensive cars. Although I’m pretty sure this one is in London year-round, I recently came up close with one of the more unique luxury cars in Knightsbridge – a velvet wrapped Rolls Royce. It’s quite a sight to see.
And, in case you’re wondering….I did not touch the car. But, I’ll admit it – I was tempted to!
There’s always something interesting happening in London, and this weekend was no exception. When I heard Hermès was hosting an exhibition at The Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea, I immediately marked it on my calendar. While I am familiar with Hermès, the Wanderland experience presented me with a different side of the brand. Unexpected and experiential, I really enjoyed it.
