The flight to Paris was no problem at all, but it took quite a while to go through customs. The young officer behind the booth was quite serious. I have read sometimes they give Asian people a hard time. So I put on my big smile and said “Bonjour!” I could see his frozen face start to melt a little bit. “That is the only word I can say in French.” I continued with an even bigger smile. He was putting stamps on my passport while smiling at me, and suddenly said to me “Ni Hao!”. I was laughing so hard because he just said hi to me in Chinese. Lol! Peace starts with a smile. 😉

For this trip, I decided that I WILL initiate conversations instead of waiting on others to talk to me first. 😉 So the whole trip I met so many great people and made some new friends.

During the Notre Dame tour I met two ladies from Georgia. We had lunch together, and then afternoon snack and drinks, and then dinner…We were sitting at that restaurant for more than 6 hours chatting and laughing. You know the feelings when you instantly click with someone? I just felt like we had known each other for a long time. I told them I felt like my husband sent two sisters to me to accompany me on my adventure. They invited me to continue the trip with them throughout the rest of Europe. I was seriously considering joining them but later I had to say no since I didn’t pack any extra medicine with me. Bummer!

I met a beautiful girl at breakfast in my hotel. She is German but lives in London. We went shopping together after breakfast and scored a few vintage scarfs together with super great deals. She helped me take photos and she was being a very honest shopping buddy too. With her help I found the best white bow tie button down shirt. Now I know if I go to London someday, I will have a friend there. 🙂

When I was in the Chanel store near my hotel, I was looking for someone to take a photo of me. I asked a very pretty Asian girl who just happened to be standing next to me. She looked at me and asked “Are you asking to take a photo with me?” I said “No, I hope you can take a photo of me.” I heard a group of people near her laugh very hard. She took a few photos of me and then walked away. I asked the laughing people what was funny and it turned out she was quite a big celebrity with almost 6 million followers on Instagram. Lol. I felt pretty bad so I waited for her to finish her own photo shoot and took a photo with her. 😉

I felt like my husband was everywhere with me, enjoying every minute of this journey. When I was in the gardens at Versailles, suddenly some old memories came. We had gone to a very similar palace in Germany 7 years ago and of course we had a great time there. I was crying by myself and talking to him in my mind for a while. I know if he was still here, he would give me a bear hug, rubbing my head and telling me how sorry he was. I treated myself to a nice dinner to make up for my bad mood later. 😉 I was happy and sad to see one of the bars offer Paulaner beer. My husband and I met at Shanghai Paulaner so I had to have a beer to honor him.

This whole trip was so smooth and filled with amazing moments. I loved everyday sitting outside of a restaurant drinking my wine, eating delicious food and people watching. My man always wanted to show me the world and now he must be very proud of me. I have to say, I am more confident after this trip.

I love everything that is personalized or custom made. The bottom line is we are all unique and you can’t find any two of us who are exactly the same. So why should we all choose the same style or looks when it comes to handbags? Of course we shouldn’t. Beau Satchelle is here for everyone who is looking to add more personality to their handbag collections. Just like Beau Satchelle mission states, they provide “Bespoke Luxury For The Discerning Individual”

I always wanted a hat box style bag so I turned to Ty Michael, Luxury Designer/Leather Artisan at Beau Satchelle. After many emails back and forth we settled on this unique tiger bag. Do you know why there is a tiger on the front? Anyone?

Yes, tigers are cool. But that is not the reason. Try again! Fine, here is the answer. Because I am a tiger. 😉 The tiger is my Chinese zodiac.

Ty worked on this bag for many, many hours and he tried very hard to make sure I got it before my Paris trip. He said he wanted this tiger a little bit mean so it can protect me when I was traveling alone. 😉 You know, when you fall in love with a brand, it is often not just because of the products, it is often because the deep connection with the people behind it. Beau Satchelle was there for me the whole time while my late husband was sick, going through treatment, and then when he passed away. Now they are here to support me getting back on my feet.

Ok, let’s get back to my cool bag. 😉 One thing I know for sure about the handbags from Beau Satchelle is they are all carefully hand made using the highest quality Italian leather goods. This tiger bag is no exception.

Other than the high end quality, I can’t believe how roomy this bag is. When I was traveling, I put my big iPad, iPhone 7+, phone charger, extra phone charging station, a book, a bottle of water, wallet, passport, a small bag with all my medicine and snacks, a middle size bag for all my makeup touch up things, a scarf, and a Neck Support Travel Pillow.

I have read so many stories of people talking about the pickpockets in Paris. To be honest with you, I haven’t seen any nor did I encounter any of them. My tiger bag may have scared all of them away. 😉 I have to say, with this bag, it would be super difficult for someone to try to open it without gaining my attention. So, if you are going to a place well known for pickpockets, then this bag is a very good choice.
