Our last day in Paris was filled with a trip to the Eiffel Tower and climbing the Arc de Triomphe.

We had to do the touristy thing and take stupid pictures but we were laughing and ready to move on.

The top of the Arc de Triomphe had a fabulous view of the city. Sandy said she was done walking a bagillion steps so she stayed below and waved from afar!
We ate lunch on the most touristy street in Paris and watched all the tourists go by and decided that french women can be summed up in a few simple sentences...
-very natural looking, no highlights, very little makeup and simple haircuts
-sensible and good looking shoes, not necessarily expensive but comfortable and pretty
-dressed simply and always with a jacket of some sort to finish the outfit
-very little jewelry
-leather, well worn handbags, again, not necessarily expensive but good looking

We decided we all want to look french! Oh yes....THEY ALSO SMELL SO GOOD! Really! It was the first thing we noticed in Paris. You walk by a french women and she smells so good - very floral but sophisticated. We were determined to find that french fragrance and we did. On our fourth day, I walked into Sephora and said 'do you speak english', 'We want to smell like french women, please point us in the direction of the french scent'. They did and we all smell uber fabulous now!
We then ventured to the flea markets! WooHoo! It was awesome and I'll have to do a full blog on this when I get home.

I ended up buying these postcards to frame.
If only there was a way to get this home!We enjoyed crepes on the way home and finished our day with a party on the rooftop terrace!
