Spending a magical 24 hours in Paris wit the Renaissance hotels; including an EPIC party at the Eiffel Tower!

Last week I was invited on an INCREDIBLE whirlwind trip to the city of lurveeeeeeee; Paris! I went along for a magical 24 hours with the Renaissance Hotels to celebrate their Global Day of Discovering and we had the most amazing time! With a 5am start, and arriving to a stifling hot Paris by 9am, we were whisked off for a delicious lunch at Balagan (an award winning Israeli restaurant), followed by a wander around the city, and a party at the Eiffel Tower (yup, a bloody party at the Eiffel Tower - it was as incredible as it sounds!). Let's take a closer look at where we stayed and what we got up to!...

Renaissance Paris Arc de Triomphe Hotel

39 Avenue de Wagram, Paris, 75017, France

The Hotel: One of the first things I noticed (and loved) about the Renaissance Arc de Triomphe was the bloody amazing location, just a stones throw from the Arc de Triomphe as well as the Champs Elysee. It's in such a central location that's easy to reach key points around the city. We were treated to super luxe rooms with the most incredible floor to ceiling window that overlook a typically Parisian street - #GOALS much?!

Where we ate: Upon arrival in Paris we headed to the most incredible restaurant; Balagan - located in the Renaissance Vendome and newly launched by infamous chef Assaf Granit (co-owner of Jerusalem's famous MachneYuda restaurant and London’s award-winning The Palomar/The Barbary). The restaurant aims to make customers feel like they are at home; and it really does give off a homely, welcoming feel. Not to mention some of the most incredible humus and pita I've ever tried! This restaurant is DEFINITELY one for your bucket list if you're visiting Paris anytime soon. Oh, and let's not forget that Insta-worthy decor!

What we did: We wandered the sunny streets of Paris on our first day pre-party to capture some shots by the Eiffel Tower and walked along the Seine (SO dreamy!). Post party we visited the Louis Vuitton Foundation and it was such a treat! I would highly recommend a visit - the building alone is a work of art so if you're into art/architecture and culture then this is a MUST for you!

The party: I have to say, it's not every Wednesday I get bloody invited to party at the Eiffel Tower; this for me was a massive highlight (and the sole purpose of our trip - we were kindly invited along as guests of the Renaissance Hotels to celebrate their 'Discover The Lights' event). First of all, I had NO idea - what does one wear to party on the Eiffel Tower?! I settled on my red floral dress from H&M and some barely there strappy heels from Primark. We sipped on champagne, ate some delicious canapés, rubbed shoulders with some of France's finest and danced the night away until we were ready for bed! It was such a fabulous evening!

So, there we have it - an aboslutely incredibly WHIRLWIND of a trip to Paris! I honestly had the best 24 hours, from the EPIC party, to a delicious lunch, wandering the beautiful Parisian streets and exploring the Louis Vuitton Foundation.. WOW. A HUGE thank you to the Renaissance Hotels for the BEST trip! Paris, until next time bae!...

    I did the Global Day of Discovery a few years ago. The experiences that they gave us were just insane – but a party at the Eiffel Tower is just next level!

    Wowee!! What a day! First off – you look absolutely gorgeous in that red dress (really really gorgeous!) and that party sounds incredible!! Sounds like you’ve pretty much done the whole of Paris in a day, creds to you what a busy day! That Louis Vuitton building looks awesome, definitely on my list of places to visit next time I’m there (on the list with Balagan, OMG that food looks tasty!)

    Love that last photo of you and the Eiffel Tower too!

    Hope you’re having an incredible time out in America too my lovely, can’t wait to read all about it!!
