Gemstones of Paris – Part I

Hello, My Lovelies!

This year is quite unusual and I find myself travelling more than ever, and I am loving it! πŸ™‚ Recently my better half (let’s call him Mr.G) took me on a lovely short break in Paris via Amsterdam. Every day of the trip was a fragrant adventure… πŸ™‚
