A sunny week-end

Tao Black tea - Fitness/Detox
What a lovely week-end it was! And week-end came early for me. After many days of ugly weather, the sun came out a little this week-end in Paris. So here's all that I did this weekend.

I am into teas and infusions lately, rather becoming heath conscious. I am in the under-weight category. So I really want to gain some kilos and I have started taking vitamin and mineral supplements: healthy eating to gain weight. I tried this Tao Pure Infusion black tea with lemon and orange blossom and kinda love it. Especially for the bottle. See how cute it is!

Sumptuous French breakfast
Friday morning, I was at the Aligre market in the 12th arrondissement of Paris. I found this little Parisian café hidden in a small street and had breakfast there. They have the biggest croissant I have ever seen. Delicious! And that freshly pressed orange juice. Friday morning was heaven!

They have a variety of coffees from around the world. On the whole, the ambiance was pleasant and I want to explore more cafés like this in the city. 

Coffee and breakfast
The flowers at the Aligre market. Fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers and antiquities. It was refreshing.

I was in week-end from Thursday afternoon and I visited the Sacré-Coeur, Montmartre. It is an ancient basilica. It was wonderful and so mysterious that it reminded me of Angels and Demons movie. I mounted to the dome and I had the bird's eye view of Paris. It was lovely!

The Montmartre area was beautiful and it was a pleasure to stroll around. I discovered this cupcake shop. Pretty shop with yummy cupcakes. I tasted their Red velvet cupcake with butter cream topping.

Apart from that, Saturday night I was out with friends and I totally enjoyed this weekend.

P.S: I made some shopping too during the weekend and over the month. I will do a haul post.

Take care
