My New Squeeze from Paris: The Celine Trio Bag in Magenta Red

You know how some guys are into their cars, computer games or others are obsessed with collecting the latest tech gadget and once they get their hands on it, getting their attention is harder than prying a smackos out of a dog’s mouth? Well, I was kind of like that this weekend with the newest handbag in my collection: My very first Celine! I was spoilt courtesy of my girlfriends with this generous birthday gift that I picked up in Paris last weekend. Blog readers, may I introduce to you my newest perfect partner in life, I mean, handbag …

We’re currently in the honeymoon phase; I’ll admit I’m definitely the more clingy one in the relationship. But this kind of happens when you’ve been dreaming about having someone like this in your life: vibrant, photogenic, sentimental, practical and most of all, doesn’t give me headaches from heavy baggage (It also doesn’t hurt if they’re romantically French either!) We’ve been inseparable all weekend long… This is just a sneak peek for now as my trio will be surely making more appearances soon xx

T-Styled Me’s Insta Tumblr Round up: Happy snaps from Paris

Why haven’t I posted on my weekend travels to Lyon and Paris last week I hear you ask? Well funny story that – You’ll find it amusing to know that I did bring my camera to France only to realise on the first day that I’d left the memory card at home (still plugged into the SD reader to my laptop, of course). Annoying as that were, I popped into Fmac to buy a new one and managed to take a few photos of dinner on our first night. Second morning, rocked up at the Le Halles de Lyon (Paul Bocuse Food market) only to discover I’d left the camera on the entire night and the battery had died! Massive.Fail. I was so annoyed at myself. You’re probably thinking ‘Well… at least you had your iphone to take photos right?!’ Nope, wrong again. I also managed to leave my phone at home; I only realised upon arrival at the airport. Fail.fail.fail. You’d think after travelling veteran by now and have this packing thing down pat but no, even I continue to surprise myself!

Here are a few pictures I managed to take with my bf’s phone:

Still at awe at how French women stay so slim when such rich and decadent food is always at their disposal …

Dessert at Paul Bocuse’s 3 Michelin starred Restaurant in Lyon

I loved the coloured walls and cobble stone pathways of old town Lyon

Dinner with friends in Paris – We had such a good time catching up and visiting the Parisian Flea markets together :)

I believe the Christmas tree at Galleries Lafayette gets bigger and brigher each year. This is the third consecutive year that I’ve taken this photo x

Last minute decision to go with the blue – Thanks for all your comments and helping me decide :) As my friends have noticed, this is a huge and heavy ring!

The highly coveted Celine Trapeze handbag – I couldn’t stand the ‘side flaps’ initially but I must say it has definitely grown on me (and the fact that you can adjust the bag so they fold inwards).

Dessert and wine were mandatory for each meal … Soooo.good.take.me.back.please!

I think I’ll definitely need to invest in a photo like this one for my future house to remind me of all the fabulous Parisian memories over the years ..

I hope you enjoyed my snaps from the good old iphone and have a great week!
