WHERE TO EAT, STAY, PLAY, AND MORE IN PARIS
Paris is for lovers, which is all we want to be. From sidewalk cafes loaded with pain au chocolat, to luxe hotels stocked with claw foot tubs, this is a JA getaway you don’t want to miss. So leave the diets behind, pack up your chicest wardrobe, and escape with us to the land of champagne showers - preferably on the back of a handsome stranger's motorcycle. La vie est belle!
Next-door neighbor to Coco Chanel’s original design house, The Castille Paris is a sophisticated home base
with an enviable address. For our lovers who are less low key and more high fashion, hook yourself up in the Rivoli Wing. With a palette of classic neutrals and Chanel as its muse, this is sure to make you feel the vibes of French style
you've been craving. Drop your bags and fuel up for the shopping wonderland that is Rue Cambon
(best done with espresso and a glass of champagne).
Privacy reigns supreme at Hotel Particulier Montmartre. Wander down a serene cobblestone path and check yourself into this ultra-exclusive 5-suite townhome. As a former residence of the Hermes family, this retreat was built for luxury. Unpack your bags and experience the magic of the divine gardens onsite. Landscaped by the mastermind behind The Tuileries Garden, this botanical beauty is the perfect spot for a morning meditation session. Chase the tranquility down to Le Mandragore for a brunch of French pastries and bloody Marys.
Screw the bikini bod, you're in Paris - bon appetit, babes!
We're all about hidden gems, and Le Très Particulier is a jewelry box full of them. Tucked down a secret passage in Hotel Particular, you'll find one of the most romantic escapes in Paris. Buzz on the intercom and say "prendre un verre" ("have a drink") to be permitted entry. With a wonderland-like setting of lush, tropical plans and deep red velvet armchairs, this is a secret that's best enjoyed in pairs.
What we're wearing
Ears dripping in bling, our Pave Diamond Agate Druzy Signet Rings and Polished Watermelon Tourmaline Baguette Signet Rings, with plenty of feet bauble— Diamond Toe anklets and shakers with our ballet flats.
Once a famed nightclub frequented by Jagger and Bowie, Les Bains has reincarnated into an international hotel paying homage to its iconic past. Stained glass windows, marble walls, and a Warhol-inspired aesthetic give this 39-suite boutique hotel an aura of pure rock-and-roll. Our favorite features? An on-site Turkish steam bath, and the lavish bar reserved exclusively for guests.
Craving something sweet? We always are. Lucky for us, Alain Ducasse and Nicolas Berger have manifested their passion for all things cocoa into a decadent chocolate factory in the heart of Paris. Enter La Manufacture and watch the magic happen from bean to bar. Indulge in ganaches, pralines, and truffles - each with rich, subtle flavours that are a true match to the industrial-chic vibes of the surrounding interior. Bon Appétit!
The sophistication of a champagne toast overlooking the Eiffel tower est incroyable, but sometimes you just need a night out dancing with your girls. Candelaria, a tiny taco shop offers a delicious variety of Mexican basics- and an impressive cocktail list to match. Nothing pairs better with tortilla chips than tequila, and we know just the place. Behind this tacqueria lies a hidden speakeasy with a modern-rustic vibe that’s bound to impress. Head through the unmarked white door, and order yourself a Naked & Famous - a mezcal cocktail that’s manifesting all the right things.
Patisserie Stohrer, opened in 1730 by the personal chef of Louis XV of France- this legendary patisserie serves pastries baked for royalty. Most people opt for the classic éclairs, but the tarte du citron is our guilty pleasure. Get in line goddesses; this spot is a local legend and known to be packed. We know waiting can be rough, but patience is a virtue baby and we promise its worth it.
Restaurant derriere Paris, Feeling home-sick? We doubt it. But just in case, Restaurant Derriere Paris has you covered. Imitating the style and décor of a French baroque home, this intimate dining experience feels like a casual night in at your best friend's abode. Guests are seated in a room of the house according to their mood, so you know where to find us…bedroom vibes forever baby ;)
Brunch is calling, and the all-white, luxe vibe of
Claus Cafe is the perfect answer. Upon entry you'll find yourself situated in a small grocery store, the épicerie. Browse the pristinely curated selection of honeys, jams, and specialty goods - then let the faint sounds of clinking teacups guide you to the eatery upstairs. With a spread of biscuits, organic mueslis, cheeses, and fresh juices, this German-inspired cafe is adorably chic and bound to impress.
Time to treat yourself lover! After a day of fine art and divine shopping, keep the luxe coming and indulge in something rich. Just steps away from the Louvre lies Angelina, a tea house serving up the most decadent, velvety hot chocolate in all of Paris. Order up a glass (its okay, chocolate calories don’t count) and ride this cocoa high into your next adventure.
Ready for Happy Hour?
Hotel Maison Souquet is the perfect beginning for a night out in the city. Serving as a house for ladies in the early 1900s, the décor of this modern-day luxe establishment rings true to its past. Golden-accented interiors, rich velvet, and a barely-there entrance draw in locals and jet-setters alike. The dimly lit lounge, simply called The Bar, offers cocktails served in smokey wood glasses and peppered with chai spices. Come with your tribe and stay for the vibe.
You can’t leave Paris without a stop at Le Montana, an exclusive socialite magnet with a long-standing reputation. Situated on a quiet street in Saint-Germain-des-Pres, this noir building is anything but discrete. Head up to the rooftop bar for a toast with a view, or make your way to the underground dance floor for midnight fun. Boasting guests from the worlds of fashion, film, and music, the crowd you’ll find here plays hard and works even harder.
Time for some spa culture! One of our favorite stops on this JA getaway is Spa Le Bristol. We’re all about sharing the love, which is why the Midnight in Paris treatment will always make our itinerary. This experience is served up in pairs, so strip down with your lover and soak in the serenity. Highlights include an aromatherapy massage, a caviar lift facial, and a champagne/pastry tasting served on your very own private terrace. Indulge baby, and welcome to the city of love.
Next up on our travel hitlist is none other than
Musee d’Orsay. Located on the banks of the Siene river and across from the Tulleries Garden, its nearly impossible to believe this dreamland of fine art was once an old railway station. The vibes here are silent admiration and the setting is pure bliss. Natural light pours down from glass ceilings and golden details lace the walls. After spending some time with Van Gogh, Monet, and Renoir head up to the fifth floor for the pièce de résistance: a lookout view of Paris that’s unforgettable.
What we're wearing
Layers of diamonds and gold with our Gemstone Aromatherapy Potion Bottle Necklaces filled with our favorite essential oils.
Musée de l’Orangerie, Creative mavens, this one's for you. Exhibiting the complete collection of Claude Monet's
Les Nymphéas, this quaint, two-floor museum has you covered for an afternoon with the arts. What better way to
chase your champagnes dreams than with a Monet masterpiece?
From 2:30-4pm on select Saturdays, Le Bristol opens its doors for an afternoon of fashion that can't be missed.
Indulge in a menu offering tea, pastries, and champagne as you sit back and enjoy a runway show featuring a neighboring couture house.

A trip to Paris is never complete without a visit to Jardin Du Luxembourg, an urban oasis of chestnut groves
and 17th century French architecture. Whether you’re calling dibs on a few iron chairs to picnic with your tribe,
or strolling solo, these iconic grounds are heaven for the leisure-loving goddesses craving some down time.
Tucked within a courtyard off of Rue Saint-Honoré, Madlords delivers fine jewelry within an aura of badass Parisian style. The airy vibes and glass walls you’ll find here provide the perfect ambiance to score some divine pieces. Whether you’re with your tribe or solo, this is a stop you left extra space in your suitcase for.
Don’t forget to hit up the Jacquie Aiche shop-in-shop!
Marche aux Puces de Saint-Ouen, or Les Puces for short, is a vintage lover’s paradise. This antique market, hosting more than 120,000 visitors each weekend (casual), is the largest in the world. Brimming with art, vintage clothing, chic furniture finds, its not just sad to leave here empty handed..its devastating to have to leave at all.
Walk into Le Bon Marche, the world’s oldest and most iconic department store, and brace yourself for some serious shopping damage. Wander up to the second floor and you’ll discover L’espace Souliers, the iconic shoe department complete with insanely stunning architecture and a glass roof to top it all off. Many of the shoemakers displayed are artists who solely exhibit at Le Bon Marche, so if anyone asks- no you didn’t buy more shoes, you bought art.
