Do’s and don’ts in Paris: (Ex: Tipping: yes/ no, public transport tips, safety tips etc.):

I recommend getting a Carte Navigo Découverte for your stay if you're here more than a few days. No need to tip. Say "Bonjour" as much as you can. Avoid the bus late at night. Watch your belongings in the metro (especially your phone when the doors close!)

Which Paris shops do you hit up when you’re itching for something new?

Satellite for jewellery, Rains for hipster bags, Jimmy Fairly for sunglasses

What’s the one place in Paris you think is underrated?

Jardin du Luxembourg is the best park yet no one ever recommends it!

Where would you take a date for a romantic night out?

Dinner on a boat on the Seine, no doubt.

Drunk and hungry - where do you go in Paris?

Mardin Soure or Sette Pizza!

Where do you take your guest when you want to impress?

The rooftop of the Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers has incredible views of Paris and a great atmosphere!

Your go-to brunch spots:

Season is the best!!!

Special views that mainstream tourists don't know about:

The top of Belleville park ;)

Best place for a cheap bite on-the-go:

Pokawa = amazing Poke bowls

Tomorrow’s your last day in Paris. How do you spend it?

I start the day with caramel pancakes at Season. Then I walk through the Tuileries gardens to get to the Musée d'Orsay to make the most of the intellectual side of Paris. For lunch, I eat the best tapas in the world at l'Avant Comptoir de la Terre. I then visit the Chateau de Versailles, mostly to lay in the beautiful gardens and read a book by the lake. I enjoy a delicious dinner at Café des Anges and watch people go by with a steak tartare and a glass of wine. Finally, I end the night partying at Rex with my friends and dance the night away!

You’re meeting the mayor of Paris - what constructive criticism would you give them?

Hmm where are the outdoor cinemas and rooftop pools?!
