Have you ever been in this park? It’s one of the most beautiful parks of Paris, among Jardin des Tuileries and Jardin des Plantes.

If you have already been to Paris, I guess you have also been to Jardin du Luxembourg, but if you haven’t yet, then add it to your list among “Must to do and see while in Paris“. A visit at this park was also on my list on a sunny Sunday last Easter.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t take the photos I had envisioned. The sunlight was very strong and the park was full of people at the moment I visited the park. Makes absolutely sense on a sunny Sunday. However, I enjoyed my Sunday stroll.

Spring in Vienna

Spring in ViennaSpring in Vienna

I spent about one hour taking photos of those gorgeous flowers in Burggarten the other day and wouldn’t mind spending one more hour if I didn’t have to go to an appointment. I had the perfect afternoon light and the perfect flowers in front of me. Luckily, I also had my camera with me.

I spotted them unexpectedly! But I can recall, they were there, at the same place, last year as well. If you see the peonies in Burggarten, you cannot just ignore them and walk past. I wasn’t the one who was taking pictures of them. They must be one of the tourist attractions during spring in Vienna, I guess.

Peonies blooming in Burggarten

Each year in early Spring, you’ll find an astounding number of Peonies blooming in Burggarten. The sheer volume of these beautiful flowers makes them impossible to miss, but they are also so much more than just a visual spectacle that you can admire from afar.

By standing near these flowering bushes and inhaling deeply, you’ll find yourself surrounded by their sweet scent – and by walking between the rows, you’ll be able to feel their petals brush against your skin!

Sadly enough, they will wither soon but then we will have the flowers in Volksgarten if my memory doesn’t fool me from last year.

My travel to Paris in April has been undoubtedly the highlight of the month. I wish I could visit this incredibly beautiful city every month and this little wish of mine is not meant to stay as just a wish. Who knows? Life is unpredictable. May Dior call me tomorrow and want me to take pictures of their next summer collection. : ) (ok, here you can laugh out loud.)

The last days of April have been very strange. My body was in Vienna and my mind was still in Paris. My mind just didn’t want to get back to Vienna. Maybe because I really had unexpectedly a very nice time in Paris or because this travel has been all I really needed at that specific time of my life or it is just a combination of those two factors. But you cannot easily forget moments of happiness in life, right?

On this blog post I publish a collection of Paris photos. How many Paris photos can your heart handle? I just took so many of them and cannot keep them in my archive only for myself. They are meant to be shared with all of you who follow The Viennese Girl blog.

Don’t get fooled by the pictures. I don’t go shopping at Gucci and Prada, unless it’s a special occasion, like a birthday or something. I usually do online shopping at home, with ease and comfort, especially when I am not in the mood of going out and mingling with the crowd and I personally avoid Saturdays, which automatically means long queues in the cash desk and fitting rooms. Some of the online shops I tend to shop at are Bonprix, Asos, Zara or Massimo Dutti.

When it comes to shopping in Vienna, some of the main shopping streets are Mariahilferstrasse, Neubaugasse, Kärntner Straße and of course the Golden Quarter which is a luxury shopping area in downtown Vienna. This is the area where you can find international designer labels but keep in mind that there are also many other interesting shops and boutiques in the 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th districts, maybe not that well-known but still you might find pieces that you will love.

Summer is just around the corner and I feel like my garderobe needs a total makeover. To be more precise, I actually feel the need to give away all my clothes (or throw them from the window 🙂 ) and buy some new, fresh pieces. You see, it comes the day when you want to get rid of everything old.

My advice: better fewer but beautiful, than too many and useless. Buy fewer pieces, yet more precious. Always remember to prefer quality over quantity. ♥
