Guest post: Jillian of Cornflake Dreams

I am so excited to have Jillian here in my place today! She is one of my favs. I love the Paris round up she put together!


Five on Friday - Paris edition! It's Jillian from Cornflake Dreams and I am thrilled to be guest posting for Jessica while she is running around Paris :) I have visited Paris twice and it's one of my favorite cities, so I wanted to round up my five favorite things about Paris: 
ONE: The Fashion - High-end designers aside, I love every day Parisian fashion. The city is full of stylish men and women who look so chic in the Parisian uniform: lots of dark colors, simple jewelry and no-fuss fresh make-up.
TWO: The Food - specifically croissants! There are days when I dream about Parisian croissants! It's kind of hard to believe that I wasn't a huge fan of croissants until recently (even after studying abroad in Paris for a month in college). I finally gave in and I had a croissant every day on our honeymoon. Now I am really disappointed when American croissants are mushy and not flaky on the outside (that's the most important part!)
THREE: The Architecture - Paris is one of my favorite cities because it is a city filled with gorgeous architecture and historic churches and museums. There is something beautiful on just about every street!
FOUR: The Parks - There is nothing like a beautiful green space and Paris has quite a few parks (perfect for an impromptu picnic or people watching).
FIVE: The Art - Paris has some of the world's most famous museums, the Louvre, Musee D'Orsay, Centre Pompidou, Cluny Museum, Rodin Museum and a few others I haven't gotten the chance to visit. Not to mention all the sculptures. 

Have you visited Paris? 
What is your favorite part about the city?
