Ah, my days in Paris have come and gone in an instant, but I’m here to give you the recap on my trip with Artistry for the Studio Parisian launch.

It’s not everyday you get the chance to experience the city of Lights in its full glory. To make things even sweeter, this was my first branded international trip! Here I was with a group of content creators exploring the city with a full itinerary of things to do. I’m telling you what we did, what to eat, what to wear and giving you the ultimate Paris itinerary for a glam AF trip!

I could get use to this view everyday!

Day 1 – Let the fun begin!

Thanks to Artistry, my voyage began before my passport was even stamped. I dreamed up my favorite sort of Parisian experience, researched the city, packed up my favorite Studio Parisian goodies and was set for my adventure. My flight was a long over 12 hours, but that didn’t stop me from taking on the city.

First stop was Hotel Atala, where we would be spending the entire stay. Greeted with a warm welcome by the Artistry Team, set the tone for the trip. They had the Studio Parisian bath and body products in hand for us to relax and unwind!

Day 2 – What to wear in Paris

Paris culture is all about less is more, quality over quantity and refinement! Also, anything goes! Opt for cute basics. A safe bet is a cute dress or skirt and a statement coat.

I want to take a moment to highlight the #passionistas who took over Paris with me side by side; Bessy, Caroline, Farheen, Kika, Morgan and Ria. These beautiful ladies came from far and wide, but we all shared one thing in common – fierce women who valued empowerment! One of the first steps to empowerment is confidence and what better way to feel confident than dressing to impress.

Confidently, we hit the Parisian Streets in style on our way to the Pamella Roland Trunk Show where we got an exclusive buyers’ look of her new collection just in time for Paris Fashion Week.

Day 3 – Chic things to do in Paris

There are honestly no words to describe the art in the city. All across Paris, street art is yours for the viewing and we got to dive in deeper on a Street Art Tour of Bellville with our very own native guide!

Fun Fact: The Artistry Studio Parsian Line features artwork by French illustrator, Adolie Day, who brings a little bit of Paris whimsy to life through her designs.

Furthermore, you have no clue how many surprises you can get roaming Parisian colorful streets decorated by amazing artists. It’s only right we touch up our passionista glam along the way!

I had so much fun on the Street tour with my on-the-go makeup handy. It was effortless transitioning my look from day to night. Paris has a variety of options for night owls and the highlight of my night experience was the City of Lights Dinner Cruise on the Pont de L’Alma (Seine River). The city’s landmarks illuminated by night mixed with good vibes, while enjoying a 3 course meal was unbeatable.

Bon appetit!

Day 4 – What to eat in Paris

What’s the best way to immerse yourself in the culture of a new place in the world?

Dinner at Atelier Maître Albert

I can’t tell y’all the countless times on this trip that we passed by a cafe filled with all kinds of colorful macarons. Despite the simplicity of this small delicate snack, I soon learned how hard they are to make.

We got the chance to attend a Macaron cooking class with Artistry in a beautiful kitchen space filled with materials, instructions, ingredients and tools. All we had to do was watch, listen, learn… and of course DO!

Ohh la la


I’m so glad I got the chance to travel to Paris as an Artistry Partner! Where should I go to next?
