Paris Essentials



Before I start blogging about what I did everyday while I was in Paris, I thought I'd write a post about the more important things regarding the trip like ; travel essentials, tips & tricks for surviving Paris and things like that for those of you who plan to visit this beautiful city in the future. Or are just curious to know haha. Of course, things change and seasons change as time moves forward so bear in mind that everything I write is based on my trip in mid-September 2015 (near beginning of Autumn). 

Where I stayed




Paris has 20 arrondissements. Which means 20 districts / neighbourhoods basically, and I stayed in the 11th. The arrondissements are arranged clockwise, as you can see in the photo. You can read about all 20 arrondissements here and here. We opted for a studio apartment instead of a hotel because a) it's cheaper, b) we can cook + do laundry.  So we looked for an apartment on Airbnb, if you don't know what that is, it's an app that lets you find places to rent when you travel. People upload listings of their homes / rooms, and we can look for them and pay through the app straight. You can choose a room or an entire home, so in our case we chose an entire home (apartment). 

I stayed on Rue du Fabourg Saint-Antoine, and it was such a nice location. It's not exactly near all the tourist attractions, and it's not far from them too. There were no tourists at all where I stayed, so you can bet I felt über Parisian living there hahaha. Another perk about my street is that, it's right opposite the metro station (travelling by metro is the best way to travel from one place to another in the city of Paris, besides walking !), there's a halal butchery nearby, a few halal restaurants / food joints, markets, cafes and down the street, numerous shops ranging from clothes to shoes to hats, you name it. Oh and right below my apartment is a bakery, so I wake up every morning to the smell of freshly baked pastries, and right beside it is a cafe / bar called Le Bidule that serves the best hot chocolate I have ever tasted.  The guy that we rented the place from is also super nice, and he's muslim too which makes it a lot easier for us to ask about food matters and things like that. 

The place I stayed was opposite the Faidherbe Chaligny station on line 8, and it's a 2-3 minute walking distance from the Reuilly Diderot station on line 1. You can hop on and off different trains that go on different lines to get to different places (hah, that's a lot of 'different'). Sounds complicated but as long as you know which station on which line you need to stop at, you're good to go. 



Besides my passport and IC (or ID if that's what you call it), here are my other travel essentials.

Travel Essentials : Technology 


You can use the code 'atirah2015' on www.danielwellington.com during checkout to get 15% off all watches and accessories.
Free worldwide shipping too ! Valid til 30th October 2015. 

Phone + charger
Camera + charger 
Adapter 
(Our plugs won't fit into European sockets without it)
Extension plugs 
(so you can just connect it to one socket through an adapter and charge multiple things at once. 
Saves the 'I wanna charge my phone first' arguments)
Earpods 
Powerbank
Watch

That's all I brought technology-wise on the trip. The powerbank is probably the least essential because the whole period while I was in Paris, I depended on wifi, and obviously when I'm sightseeing and walking around, I'm not on my phone because I don't have data so that saves a lot of battery. Also, I use a camera to take photos. Because of that my phone doesn't use much battery at all, and it'll last me all day. If you do take photos with your phone, bring a powerbank. The powerbank was only useful to me on flights and at the airports when there's a lot of waiting and boredom involved.


Travel Essentials : Beauty 


I went for a natural, minimal kind of everyday makeup look so I totally skipped bringing my eyeshadow palettes, bronzer, highlighter and eyeliner. Ain't nobody got time to do any of that when you're rushing to go out, seriously.  Okay, so the list will be in this order : skincare, makeup tools, makeup items, makeup removal, miscellaneous 

Moisturiser (cold, windy weather = dry, dead looking face) 
Sunscreen - L'Oreal Paris UV Perfect 12 Protector SPF50++++
(note that even though the weather is gloomy and cold, the sun rays can still harm you)
Cleanser 



Real Techniques Multi Task brush (powder)
Real Techniques Expert Face brush (foundation)
Angled eyeliner brush (brows) 
Eyeslash curler



Primer - Benfit POREfessional
Foundation - Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum in shade 52 Vanilla
Concealers - Collection Lasting Perfection in shade 2 Cool Medium 
- Revlon Colorstay concealer in shade Light Medium
Setting Powder - L'Oreal Mat Magique BB Veil in shade N2 Nude Ochre 
Blush - Benefit Rockateur 



Eyebrow pencil - Silkygirl Natural Brow Pencil in shade 02 Dark Brown
Eyeshadow trio - H&M. I use the matte brown shade to fill in my brows some more, the lightest shade to highlight under the browbone, 
and the shimmery shade as highlight on my cheeks and bridge of my nose. 
Eyeshadow Stick - Etude House in shade #10 Little Bear Star
Mascara - L'Oreal Miss Manga Waterproof (SO important that it's waterproof, Paris rains unpredictably)
Lipbalm - Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast
Lipliners - Silkygirl Long-Wearing Lipliner in 01 Nude
- Rimmel London Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner in shade 045 Epic
Lipsticks - Silkygirl Moisture Rich in shade 01 Naked
MAC satin finish lipstick in the shade Twig

Makeup Remover wipes - Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes
Liquid remover (for stubborn waterproof mascara) - Silkygirl Gentle Eye & Lip Makeup Remover

Dry shampoo - Batiste 
Cotton Pads (for liquid remover)
Cotton Buds (for makeup mistakes or whatever) 
Body lotion 


Travel Essentials : Fashion-y stuff


I'm not going to list down all the clothes I brought because I don't think it's necessary at all, you plan what you want to wear before the trip itself to make it easier. Think of comfort, take account of the weather, and the versatility of the garment (read : how many times you can style it so you don't have to fit your whole wardrobe into your suitcase). 

Comfortable Shoes

I brought my heeled boots, and intended on wearing them throughout the whole trip but my God, after the second day my feet felt like they were gonna fall off. I bought a pair of slip ons from H&M out of desperation, and I didn't expect to love them as much as I do, but these shoes are the bomb. Comfortable as heck !!! I walk a lot, and I mean A LOT a lot when I travelled so when I say they're comfortable, they really are comfortable. I now understand why they were a trend (are they still?) a few months back. I also like the material on mine, I don't even know how to explain, but it's shiny and it's sort of water resistant which is a major plus point because it rains out of nowhere 60% of the time, and chances are you'll be stepping in puddles here and there. 

Bag

Also preferable if it's water-resistant. Because rain, duh. Unless you're bloody rich and you have a driver to drive you around Paris, go ahead and bring your Chanel and Dior(s). If not, skip it and just bring any bag that is big enough to fit all your crap and that you don't mind bringing on the metro and taking for long walks without worrying about pickpockets or snatch thieves aiming at you because of what you carry. Paris is generally a safe city, but because of the high amount of tourists that visit each year, there are always people aiming to steal something from you if you're not careful enough. So bring a bag with a zip and if you're carrying a backpack, lock it. I carry a lot of crap with me even when I'm not travelling (lol) but I'm glad I ditched little sling bags and brought my Longchamp. I can fit a universe in there + it's waterproof. 

Headscarf / Tudung

Skip your chiffons. The wind is going to ruin it !!!! I wore my Georgette dUCk once out of the 10 days and it was torture, it kept flying e.ve.ry.where. My holy grail in Paris was my black pashmina shawl that you see in 90% of my Instagram posts / video. It doesn't need ironing, super easy to wear, stays put, and it was only 10 bucks. You can find it anywhere lah, I found mine at a tudung booth in Tesco. #realtalk. Oh and bring a lot of pins. I lost like 5 there. I brought 7 -_-

Outerwear 

I got my black and grey outerwear on Shein.com. They take a while to ship though and not all of their clothes are of good quality. You have to really read reviews and see real pictures on people wearing it on the site before you buy it, and also measure yourself before getting any. It's like a gamble buying on the site honestly haha. A lot of research has to be done before purchasing anything on Shein, so take your time. I had to return one of mine because it didn't meet my expectations and it was too big even though I measured myself correctly. The coats were like 100+ each, when I got them (but that was before our currency became super weak). The site is in USD so yeah. My leather jacket is from Bershka. 

Heattech from Uniqlo

I borrowed these from my best friends and they actually make me feel warmer. To me, at least. I tried going out with and without it (but okay maybe the temperature outside was different also but anyway) it works ! You probably need only one or two because you can re-wear these throughout the trip. You won't be sweating if the weather was anything like mine while I was there (9 - 18 degrees celsius). 



Travel Essentials : Others


Neck Pillow 
A guide book - The one I have from Lonely Planet is really good 
Umbrella (you have to bring this everywhere, not joking)
Sunglasses (for those rare sunny days)
Wet tissues / small water bottle (they don't have hand bidets in their toilets)
Normal tissues (you can never have too many)
Sanitiser (if you're a germaphobe like moi) 



Paris Tips & Tricks 


Do's 

Bring an umbrella everywhere
Bring a guidebook with you everywhere, or at least just the map. 
Be aware of your belongings, especially on the metro and at touristy sites
Do bring comfortable shoes

Say bonjour to everyone. At the cashier, when you enter shops, when you wanna ask someone something, start with bonjour. 

Learn the very basic French words and phrases, some helpful ones :

Pardo = Excuse me (but in a 'get out of the way' context)
Excusez Moi = Excuse me (but in a 'I need to ask you something' context) 
Merci = Thank you
Non Merci = No thank you 
Sil vou plait = Please 
Oui = Yes
Parlez vous anglais ? = Do you speak English 
Je ne parle pas francais = I don't speak French 
Malasi = Malaysia 

Get the all day metro ticket for 7 Euros if you're planning to travel a lot of places in Paris on that day. 
Saves you time and money from buying one way tickets. 

Walk a lot from place to place, Paris isn't that big surprisingly. 

Look up - Paris itself is a museum and almost all the buildings have amazing architectural details. Don't forget to look up !

Don't bring your freaking huge wallet when you travel. 
a) You don't need all the cards / crap you have in your purse when you're in a foreign country
b) It'll take you a while to dig out for money when you need to pay for something
c) A small pouch to keep your IC and your money is enough. Also don't keep all of your money in the pouch, hide some in the pockets of your bag. 



Dont's 

Don't be arrogant. It will only deter you from the friendliness of French people. 

If someone comes up to you and asks if you speak English, always say no. These people are either scammers or thieves trying to target you. Even when young girls come up to you with papers claiming it's 'surveys', just ignore and say no. They'll force you to pay a fee / donation for answering them, or they'll snatch / pickpocket something from you and run away. 

Don't go on the metro during peak hours. In the morning around 8 - 9, in the evenings around 5 - 6. Metro closes at 11. 

If you want to shop, go in the mornings or afternoons. Shops close at 8 except for bars, restaurants, cafes. Majority of shops are closed on Sundays in Paris. 

Around the Eiffel Tower especially, ignore people who try to show you a 'magic trick' by asking you to pick something up from the ground. They have other people waiting to come at you and accuse you of stealing, and / or pickpocket you while you're at it. Just walk away. 




That's all I remember for now.. if I remember anything else I'll definitely update and edit this entry. 
Leave me comments if there's anything specific that you'd like to know about or if there's anything I might have missed in this post ! 

The next time I blog will probably be somewhere around next week because I have a really busy weekend ahead of me ; working, wedding, 2 assignments (ugh). 
But yeah, I'll still be checking for comments and all until then. Thanks for reading ! x

  3. Did you get anything branded while you were there or was it a budget trip

    ReplyDelete

    1. 1) Okay, to answer your question no. And what I buy and don't buy on the trip is really none of your business in the first place haha
      2) I'm not even the type to share what I buy unless it's small things like makeup. I don't even do clothing hauls.
      3) When I said, ask me questions about anything in the post, I meant about Paris. Not questions like why my step dad didn't follow or if I'm materialistic enough to come home with anything designer (that's the correct term. Anything with a brand call be called branded.)
      4) I went to Paris to sightsee. If I wanted to shop it would've have just been a 3 day trip spent at the Champs-Elysees and Galleries Lafayette.

  13. Hey! I went there a couple years back and ya Allah the cheese AND pastries was so so good. And i don't even like cheese. But now i do haha. Did you try some? Oh yes, Paris is a beautiful place, but i sincerely reccomend Japan if you are interested. So happening and a fun experience all the way. Although i'm assuming you are a part of the sushi-lover clan. Anyway. glad you are back safely.

    Replies
    1. Hi ! I did try the cheese and I completely agree ! I lived off bread and cheese as snack while I was there hahaha. I'll keep the recommendation in mind ! I've also heard so many great things about Japan, and it's definitely somewhere I wanna visit soon. Haha I have Japanese genes but I surprisingly hate sushi.. I'm okay with other Japanese food like Teppanyaki or Ramen though. I've tried different kinds of sushi a lot of times and hated all of them haha. Thank you ! Nothing beats the feeling of coming home to my bed haha. x

    1. I'm not sure actually, I went into Sephora and everything was mostly the same. I didn't go in the pharmacies to check if their cosmetics were cheaper ke apa either, but I don't think ada banyak difference. In London it's better to shop for makeup, they have a wider variety also.

  15. Paling annoying when you come back from travelling and people ask you "what did you buy there?" Or "what souvenir did you get for me?". Serious potong steam -.- defeat the whole purpose of travelling. Travelling is to discover new places and culture and learn the history of that City, not to go shopping -.- Malaysia pun mostly got the shops/brands that overseas have. I understand your frustration cuz I received those questions when I came back from Spain. Haih some people. Lol. Anyways, thank you for the insightful post on your trip to Paris! I will definitely refer to it when I do plan on visiting Paris one day :-)

    1. So glad there's somebody out there who understands !! I totally agree, some people think its necessary to buy a lot of stuff just because you're in different place. There's sooo much more to travelling than just shopping la please. Thank you for reading ! Appreciate you writing to me too x

  17. Assalamualaikum... Hi Izza! Oh so much love for this one blog post! Thanks for sharing all the tips and tricks!

    Izza, i hope u dont mind if I ask u a question regarding the cost to get myself to Paris. Me and moi friends are currently planning to get ourselves a short getaway from the hustle and bustle of a student life. I hope you can share the (approximate) cost for the tocket flight, rent, and all the basic stuff (exclude shopping please, we only want the beautiful scenery of Paris)


    Thanks for the sharing Izza! Keep on writing young inspiring lady! Sending u all the love and blessing! Have a great day 😘❤️

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Waalaikummusalam ! Haha you're welcome, I'm glad you liked this !

      I think the most costly thing are the flight tickets, so if you book months and months in advance, you can get a good deal probably around 2000 or less. On average the tickets going to and fro would be around 3000 or 4000. But for accommodation, you can look for them on Airbnb and find good apartments for like RM250 - RM300+ per night, which if you divide amongst yourselves should be quite reasonable ! For food, if you cook at least one meal a day and eat out one more time, I think 10 - 20 Euros should get you by daily. Oh almost forgot, for metro tickets it's 7Euros daily, you can go so many places in a day. Oh you have to go to Musée d'Orsay ! The admission fee is 8.50 Euros for ages under 25, but on the first Sunday of every month, admission is free ! All the other tourist attractions are free unless you want the tours, or go on top of the monuments haha.

      I'm sorry that was messy but I hope you're able to get an idea of the cost somehow ! Oh and I found this Instagram account that takes you to places on a budget, including flight tickets and all, you should check out @bucketlistabroad ! I think what they're doing is really cool. Paris is beautiful and I hope you'll be able to visit with your friends soon ! xx

  22. Bonjour Izza, The "don't " tips is so useful for me. I just wanna ask about food. Is it easy to find halal food? I mean like whenever you go to a place is it there will be a halal restaurant nearby? Mérci Izza

    Replies
    1. Bonjour ! Glad you found the tips useful. Food wasn't that difficult, there was always a halal kebab shop somewhere along the streets. But worse comes to worst, you can always just masuk a fast food restaurant and order a fish burger. And they sell lots of bread there, so a plain crossaint is surprisingly already sedap haha
