Hunter Boots


It's winter in Paris so rain isn't something new. Well, the Hunter boots are new though. It was my birthday present from my sister last year. She knew how much I talked about and loved it but never  purchased it. The reason being? It's freaking hot and humid in Kuala Lumpur, so even though it rains a lot, I will sweat so much that it will be like flooding on the inside.

Since I'm here in Paris now, I have every reason to wear it out, especially on rainy days. I bragged about it to my bf so much that it made him think twice about owning a pair. So, we set on an adventure to go La Fayette for Hunter boots hunting. Let me tell you, it is definitely not easy to find Hunter boots for men here in Paris. Our mission failed big time! The sales lady in La Fayette sent us to another branch in Bazaar Hotel De Ville (BHV) saying they have a bigger size. We still ended up empty handed because they ran out of bigger sizes and asked us to order online instead.

If I would have known about this, I would have ordered it from Shopbop and ship it instead. Oh well, now we know. So for those of you who're still thinking of a present for your husband/bf/brother/best friend, look into Hunter boots. They're a little heavy but very comfortable and keep your feet extremely dry on rainy days.

Grey Day


After Pont Des Arts visit, we went over to Musée Du Louvre are for a walk and took a few pictures. I like this faux shearling jacket from J.O.A which I ordered from Shopbop. Call me slow but I just discovered J.O.A (Just One Answer) and I totally love their selections of jackets and coats. This jacket is more for fall weather but I'm sure it can be worn during winter too. I'll just need to add more layers.

What is your favorite jacket this season?

Pont Des Arts

Pont Des Arts
There are two very famous bridges filled with locks. One is Pont Des Arts and the other is Pont des L'Archevêché. I've heard so much about this two bridges but this is the very first visit for me. Apparently, one must be very careful which bridge to put the lock because Pont Des Arts is for committed love, while Pont des L'Archevêché is for your lover (information taken from Bonjour Paris). 

We chose Pont Des Arts at first because there's still room to place our holy-shit-it's-an-expensive lock. It was fun throwing the key into the river. We will definitely look back to this day as a very good memory.

Jardin Des Tuileries


A few weeks ago, Paris was blessed with so much sunlight. One of those days, we went to Jardin Des Tuileries. It was a beautiful day not to be out there basking in the sun with the cool breeze dancing across my face. We had lunch at the park and enjoyed people watching.

Jardin Des Tuileries is a beautiful garden with a fountain in the middle. In fact, it is very near to Rue Saint Honoré. So, we went window shopping after we left the garden. Guess I got side-tracked and I hear Hermes calling my name. What happen to window shopping?? Well, I bought some presents for myself which I believe some of you might have seen it on my Instagram @stilettoesdiva =)

Have you been to Jardin Des Tuileries? Share with me your experience in Paris.

Parka And Layering


I never thought Parka was interesting or warm enough for fall weather till I visited Australia in July and found this Billabong Parka. It was definitely love at first sight. I like the designs at the edge of the hood and sleeves. It's not too thick and definitely requires layering when it comes to fall and winter.

Basilica Sacré Coeur

Basilica Sacré Coeur
In translation, it's called Church of the Sacred Heart. This church is beautiful and grand but if you're visiting Paris for the first time and time is not on your side, do visit Notre Dame instead. In my opinion, the interior of Notre Dame is more interesting than Basilica Sacré Coeur. Unfortunately, I couldn't show you much of the interior except for this picture below which I took from Wikipedia. They do not allow cameras in there. Oh, and no cap is allowed. My bf was asked to remove his cap in order to get in.

If you would like to visit Basilica Sacré Coeur by Metro (subway), be prepared to walk a lot! Do wear comfortable shoes such as sneakers or flat boots. We had to walked two flights of major staircases and that almost took my breath away. You have another option too, just pay for the cable car ride. It was a beautiful day when we were there and it's a waste not to be out and about.

Printemps In Paris


I discovered a nice department store right beside La Fayette which is called Printemps. I like that place and I find it more pleasant to shop in comparison with La Fayette. This year, Burberry did a great job in decorating Printemps' window display. If you visit Printemps' website, you will see many pictures and videos of the window display from their social network. 


I wandered around in Printemps for a while and found myself spending a long time in the shoes department looking at their booties. Couldn't resist but to stop by Stuart Weitzman to have a look at what their new arrivals are. I do love their boots a lot and they're very comfortable. I had my 5050 for 2 years already and I still travel with them to colder places.

Would you invest in a good quality boots? Or do you prefer quantity vs quality?

Monday & A Shopbop Giveaway


Sometime ago in September, I bought some stuff at Shopbop (view my shopping here). This Tibi top is one of the items I bought. I've always love the international shipping provided by Shopbop. The package reached my doorstep unbelievably quick! 

I love the quality of this Tibi top. I've previously bought a skirt from Tibi as well. Their quality definitely did not disappoint. I wore this top to the hair salon, which I blogged about last Friday (post here). Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, I would like to thank all my readers and those who had been visiting my blog. Thank you for being a blogsphere-friend and giving Diva In Me all the support. With this, I'm going to be doing a $200 Shopbop Voucher Giveaway to a very lucky winner.

W Centro & Kerastasé


Good things got to be shared right? Hence, I'm sharing this new found salon I went to few weeks ago. Remember this post about the Kerastasé Discipline? After using it for a week, I found it simply fabulous. It worked on my damaged and unruly hair really well. I've previously permed, colored and took very little care of my hair. So I guess, naturally, it is not in its best shape. 

Bain Fluideaslite (Shampoo) - RM85
Fondant Fluidealiste (Conditioner) - RM95
Maskeratine (Mask) - RM136
Kératine Thermique (Leave-in Conditioner) - RM88
Since I love the home care from Kerastasé Discipline, I've decided to try out their treatment at a salon. I called up W Centro, made the appointment and the adventure began! I got there really late. It's a bad first impression for a hair stylist as they aren't too fond of lateness and delays. I was surprised that they were really nice to me even though i was late. I felt so bad and apologise profusely to my hair stylist, Celine Yap.

Love Faux Fur


Last weekend we went for a stroll at Jardin D'Acclimatation. It is a huge park and we only walked a small portion of the park. Apparently there's a zoo, Japanese garden, miniature golf and lots to do. I also got to know that the LV Foundation Museum just recently open their doors to the public in this garden. Maybe I shall make a point to visit soon =)

Top - Zara
Coat - Storets (other colors here)
Jeans - J Brand (available here)
Boots - Stuart Weitzman (similar here)
Also, I've taken up the challenge by Diane from DeeVine AnonymousHow Would You Wear / Fall Colors. I realise that when it comes to fall, the colors are mainly black, brown, grey, burgundy and  mostly on the darker side. Why not brighten it up a little with some pastel like this pink faux fur coat? It makes fall not as dull don't you think?

Trocadéro


In Paris, it's all about walking. I noticed people here walk a lot and fast too! Maybe this is the trick for the French to stay so slim and in shape. Today I'm going to bring you along with me to Trocadéro, Eiffel Tower and River Seine.

A Visit To Galeries La Fayette


After much rest, I recovered from my flu and fever. Woohoo! Couldn't be happier to be going out and about. We decided to decorate the house a little and make it warmer so, we went to Galeries La Fayette and did some shopping. I like Galeries La Fayette for the choices they have and it seems like I can find everything under one roof. For foreigners like me, I can get back the tax refund (VAT) in the mall itself. So that makes shopping real easy and I don't have to deal with the VAT at the airport. 

We did some early Christmas shopping as well. Was just trying to beat the Christmas crowd because it can get pretty horrendous. Oh, I am definitely feeling the Christmas mood over here =)
