Le Cinq Codet Paris - 7th Arrondissement Hotel Review

Made it to Paris, once more just before I fly back for good; indeed the best decision ever. 

This time around, I had the luxury to experience a night of staycation at Le Cinq Codet, a 5 star contemporary hotel located at the left bank of Paris. This hotel is situated centrally at the 7th Arrondissement, right next to Les Invalides and Musee Rodin, which is also walking distance from the Eiffel Tower. If you're in search of a hotel located in an arrondissement which makes exploring the city easier, then this hotel definitely fits the bill! 

As I was walking towards my room, I can't help but be enticed by the luxury suites that are all located on the top floor. The Eiffel, Rodin and Louis Codet Suites have breathtaking views from their respective private terraces that rub shoulders with the Invalides dome or the Eiffel Tower. I was granted the opportunity to stay at the Louis Codet Suite, which comes with Les Invalides' view from our terrace and of course not forgetting our very own jacuzzi in the room. 

Upon entering our Superior Suite, we were briefed thoroughly on the functionals of the room and of course a part of me just can't stop squealing inside during then (I almost couldn't contain my happiness.. oops)! To start with, it's entire room is delicately designed in a contemporary and understated style by designer, Jean Philippe Nuel who emphasises on warm tones as can be seen in the visuals later below. 

Being in a room as luxurious as this, everything should be easy, including opening and closing the curtains. I literally only had to lift a finger to switch a button and the curtains would automatically open or close. So functional, I just love it! 

I wish my pictures did more justice towards the ample amount of space of our Superior Suite. 
Scroll on for more visuals + aesthetics of our room: 

One call away, and you get to have your breakfast in bed. What's not to love about that?  
The oh-so-spacious bathroom that I miss so much! There are a total of 2 bathrooms in this suite and the one featured above is the main one which comes with a bathtub & shower. Getting refreshed being my favourite time of the day after a long sweaty day out, this bathroom definitely puts a great end to your day. The bath too good to resist; the extremely on point audio system embedded into the entire bathroom which gives an overall unforgettable bath experience while having your favourite jam on replay. You'll get what I mean once you experience it yourself! 

Our very own private terrace, where the jacuzzi is located. 
The bar patio of Le Cinq Codet. 

It is open to public as well as guests. Simply journey from the lobby and you will find a blend of industrial and artistic contemporary decor providing comfort and modern views while you dine.

It opened its doors after a modern restoration of the former France Telecom Building. It now has 67 rooms in total, with 29 different styles, dimensions and prices.

Gaston Luga, Swedish bagpack + Discount Code

Gaston Luga: A stylish Sweden designed bagpack

I recently got my hands on a functional bagpack - The Clässy in black & pink that I personally handpicked from Gaston Luga which I brought it along with me during a road trip. I love how its Scandinavian minimalism mixed with elegance makes a chic fashion statement to one's outfit and it is unlike any regular bagpack that makes you look sloppy while carrying it. I have to say, the one thing that caught my eyes after getting my hands on the item is definitely how it is made of thick and strong cotton fabric for durability. It comes with sleeker shoulder straps and shape for a more feminine look, a perfect fit for work or leisure! What sets apart its bagpack is definitely its functionality, which contains a 13" laptop pocket and several other smaller pockets to fit your smaller valuables.

If you're interested on purchasing, don't forget to use my discount code which gives you a 15% off on their site with the code "amelia15" & also enjoy free shipping + 20% off tax rebate. What's not to love about a little discount? x 

P/S: If you're interested to know where this was shot, stay tuned on this site as I'll be making a separate blogpost about it real soon!

Spring outfit with SheIn

In collaboration with SheIn Official
Today I'm wearing: Top from SheIn  // Skirt from Urban Outfitters // Adidas Stan Smith

Gone are the cold chilly weather days in the UK where I often dread, but I'm pretty sure I'll miss it the very moment I step foot back in Malaysia this summer (a little too soon!!) Sentimental moments aside, the arrival of summer shouts more opportunity to dress up more in summer clothing that I definitely miss so much + the thought of not having to layer up anymore just makes me :) This time around, I paired my criss cross bare back top, which was such a steal from SheIn with a furry patchy skirt by Urban Outfitters to achieve a simple overall ensemble. I love love love bare back tops + its skin-showing feature & the sheer simplicity of this curation is what makes it irresistible! Plus, if you're wondering, this top is made of the comfiest material (I loved it!)

P/S: If you don't already know, SheIn is currently having an early Summer sales up to 85% that offers a wide range of good deals up for grab;
