This week, #DebutDoll Batty, who hails from Paris, talks about ways to spend her birthday in the capital.
My birthday is coming up and I’m so excited as I’m the type of girl who really loves to celebrate her birthday. I believe we all need to make the most of it while we can, even if becoming one year older doesn’t seem like much, it’s still a celebration!
Ever since I was sixteen, I’ve spent most of my birthday’s in Paris, whether at night or with a daytime celebration. It went on to become a tradition to spend it in the capital.
Last year, I decided to change it up a bit and go abroad to celebrate it – but this year, I’m going to go back to old habits and celebrate it here by night. My birthday is in January, and, to me, winter is a perfect time for a birthday.
So this January, I will celebrate it in the parisian way as usual.
If you ever fancied the idea of celebrating a birthday in Paris, there are many ideas to choose from, but here are three amazing ways I can suggest.
The Cosmopolitan way – clubbing in Paris by night
If your birthday is during winter and you feel like doing something extra and fancy, this one’s for you. You wanna have fun and party? Get your most beautiful dress or evening gown and go for it. There are a lot of clubs to choose from but going to the Champs Eylsee is the perfect option. You can definitely go to the Duplex, based in the Champs Elysee street and that’s what make the place even more charming.
It’s also worth visiting the Lido. One of the most wonderful places ever – the Lido will blow you away. The Duplex and Lido are close so you can also make both!
Last minute birthday at Saint Michel
Saint Michel is the perfect area to enjoy your birthday especially during spring or summer when you just wanna go with the flow and don’t want to organise anything. Go to Saint Michel at night, where the streets are so alive, it’s a living party with plenty of terrasse cafe’s where you can have a drink with your friends.
An afternoon birthday in summer
If your birthday is in the summer then you have so many options. You can go for a picnic at the beautiful gardens of jardin des Tuileries or to the famous teahouse Angelina, my favorite place ever, where you can get some macaroons and a coffee!
