Paris is my favourite city in the world and I like to go as often as possible – mainly to stalk Parisian women for style tips. Packing for Paris is always a little bit more exciting because I already know exactly what we’ll be doing when we get there.

Our plane landed on snow. On snow! I was caught up somewhere between feeling like I’d just jetted through the wardrobe to Narnia and wondering how can Norwegian airports could be so much more sophisticated than those in Britain – where they’d have been closed hours ago with weather like this.

If you’re anything like me you love being at home and those quiet cosy nights in are your idea of heaven. I grew up in the kind of house that celebrated pyjama days and I’m still a loungewear loyalist. If you’re one of those people who lounge around watching telly in your jeans and then change straight into pjs (or not) for bed, firstly I’d argue that you don’t know what you’re missing but secondly, this might not be the post for you.
