The Day My Dreams Came True
Today was by far my most insane moment since living in Paris. Never in a million years when I was packing my suitcase to leave my little country town in Ireland would I have imagined that I’d get the opportunity to work as a model in the fashion capital of the world.
A Hidden Part of Paris
What is it exactly that comes to mind when you think of Paris? Before living here I used to dream about all of the clichés; champagne on the Champs-Elysées, riding a bike to the boulangerie and hanging out at Ladurée, sipping hot chocolate over a plate of macarons. But what a lot of people don’t know about Paris is that underneath the luxurious façade of the city there’s a thriving subculture of street style and grungy street art.
The 13th Arrondissement is one of my favourite places to experience this. Especially around the area of the Butte-aux-Cailles, one of the most hipster-friendly areas of the city and an unchartered territory for tourists.
