It’s been 2 weeks since we got back from Paris and I am still a little jet-lagged! It’s real, yall! I honestly never really understood jet lag….until I went to Europe and back. Let’s just say, my body ain’t what it used to be! 😉 Jet lag aside, #AmaryllisAbroad in Paris, France was EVERYTHINGGGG. It was so incredible; such an amazing experience and I’m so thankful to have been a part of it all!
I wanted to write this while Paris is still fresh on my mind! I felt like it was a whirlwind and have a few tips for you if you are planning to go to Paris! I certainly wouldn’t have known what to do if it weren’t for the Amaryllis team, but I did learn so much while I was there! And of course, what all of you are doing on this post, I’ll be linking my outfits, too! The Amaryllis Paris Collection is incredible. My favorite collection yet!
I’m going to jump right into it! Let me know in the comments if I’ve left something out! This might be a long one 😉
If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing with shipping Amaryllis lately! I swear most of my closet is this brand and I’m not mad about it! So affordable and you can definitely mix and match their pieces! Also, they introduced a new way to pay which makes shopping easier for everyone! Check out with afterpay to save and still get free shipping and returns on top of the amazing prices!

TIPS FOR FLIGHT + PARIS
- Take a European outlet adapter. Our hotel had them upon request, but I was glad to have my own. I didn’t take a blowdryer, they had one in room.
- FIND WATER AND STOCK UP – this was the biggest issue we ran into. They are very stingy with their water. I took a reusable water bottle and just refilled as often as I could as you can only buy glass water bottles. They also don’t like you to have your coffee on the go. Plan to sit and drink. Enjoy 😉
- Flight – We had a 9 hour overnight flight. I took these Liquid IV Sleep packets and used one in a water bottle on the way there. I took at 10pm and slept 7 hours. It wasn’t bad at all! For the flight home, I napped off and on and we binge watched Yellowstone (can be found on Amazon Prime Video)
- Plan to stay in Europe for 10 days or more. We stayed for 7 days and found that it took us until day 3/4 to get adjusted to the 7 hour time difference. Some of the people with us had a 9 hour time difference and it was hard. By the time we adjusted, it was time to go home! Next time (when we don’t have small children at home) we will plan to stay longer for 10-14 days.
- Take an anti-nausea medicine with you. Brett and I didn’t get sick, but almost everyone else with us had stomach/car/flight issues. I had medicine with me and was able to help them out, so it’s always good to have on hand! Just contact your doctor and tell them you are flying/leaving the country and they will be able to recommend the best option for you.
