After an amazingly crazy day of getting lost but having a blast on an adventure, a group of us headed up the Champs-Elysees to watch the fireworks from the Arc de Triomphe. Because they didn't start until 11pm we toured the shops up that streets--though to call them shops doesn't quite do it justice. These are the world design houses--not just stores, the actual real deal. These are the designers, THE DESIGNERS, the design capital of the world--where fashion begins. Do you understand how cool this is??? Anyway, we had a few hours to kill, so we did makeovers in Sephora. Lizzie did my eyes up to be festive for Bastille day--I was the only guinea pig brave enough to let her do blue. ;) I like dressing up--pretty, crazy, whatever, I'll go for it.
And finally (I was so exhausted, I thought they would never begin)--the fireworks!!!
Watching the fireworks from the Arc itself--not the closest view, but definitely good enough for me--it's the ARC DE TRIOMPHE after all! And the best part was that we beat the crowds and made it home first. Yep, that's where I get excited. ;)
Joyeux Quatorze Juillet! Bonne fete! Yay for crazy French Revolutionaries storming the Bastille!
