a lovely evening dinner @ Thalys on our way back home
I had the most amazing weekend !  On saturday I was invited by Thalys to visit Paris fashion week. (Sorry for the picture overload)

The Thalys ride was wonderful, we arrived in Paris in less than 2 hours. We took the Thalys in Brussels south on saturday morning. The seats on the Thalys in first class were really comfortable and we were offered a lovely breakfast and drinks. The staff was really helpful and sweet, which made our train ride even more fun ! Before we knew it, we arrived in Paris.
After leaving my comfortable Thalys seat (could of stayed there a lot longer), we left for a hectic day with a lot of running around in Paris.

The first thing we visited was the Viktor & Rolf show, where I was asked by photographers to take my picture (including for US Glamour magazine ) .
After the V&R show, we went for drinks and something to eat.  This is when I spotted Chiara (theblondesalad) outside a store. She was really sweet.

The last show we visited was the Sonia Rykiel show. So many people without invites, that wanted to get a glimpse of the new collection caused mayor chaos :-) Truly fashion madness !

I was really surprised at how little time we had though, and was sad that I couldn't visit Belgium showroom,  showroom Jessy Lecomte, showroom Marc Philippe Coudeyre & Jean Paul Lespagnard of whom I heard were amazing ! Maybe next year ...

Before we knew it, we were back in our comfortable Thalys seats on our way back home! On our ride home we were offered a delicious meal. This really came at the right time as I was starved and thirsty from all the running around in a tropical Paris!

Special thanks to Thalys who made our Travel very comfortable and relaxing !
