My sixth day in Paris was spent catching an early chunnel ride to London. I don't have very many pictures from London only because it was freezing out and we were only there for maybe 6 hours and we spent those hours riding around on a double decker tour bus hopping on and off. After seeing so much beautiful architecture in Paris, I thought that Buckingham Palace was very anticlimactic. Sort of like the Mona Lisa. Westminster Abbey, however, was one of my favorite things from the entire trip. It was absolutely beautiful. I even snagged a picture inside before I realized you weren't supposed to take any. Woops! I wish I could have spent more time and really explored London but I didn't get to. Next time!

Supplies you will need: Cork (I used a medium thickness), picture frame (mine is a 16 x 20), 1 yard of fabric, scissors, measuring tape, sharpie, and a stapler.
1. Roll out your cork and measure out the width and length of your picture frame. Mark it with a sharpie. Mine was a 16" x 20"
2. Cut out the cork.
3. Put the fabric face down and lay the cork over it. Wrap the fabric around the cork and staple it into the cork. You can also use a staple gun but I think the staple might then poke through the other side.
4. Insert into picture frame and voilà you have a cork board picture frame! I also suggest if you have a crease on your fabric to iron it or steam it before hand. I did not do that which is why there is a big line through mine. Hope you all enjoy!

Day 4 was spent shopping along les Champs-Elysées and then wondering around the Tuleries, the area around the Petit Palais and the Grand Palais, checking out L'arc de Triomphe, investigating the Louvre, and finally ending with a much desired trip to the infamous Laudurée. The craftsmanship and the size of the buildings in Paris astonishes me. They paid so much attention to every single detail on every building they have ever built. I just absolutely love it. Laudurée lived up to its expectations, however the hot chocolate was literally a melted bar of chocolate. But I did have a macaroon that tasted like gardenias. Amazing!
Again, I apologize for the lack of fashion photos as I was with people who could not figure out how to use the camera. It's amazing I was even in some of the pictures.
