Paris


Hey! Today I am posting a few pictures from Paris where we spent five days last week. We stayed in a beautiful apartment close to Montmartre. It was first time when we booked the place through Airbnb and we were very pleased with the whole experience.

The hot weather successfully discouraged us from being very active but we managed to discover a few new nice spots and visit some places that had been on our wish list for years.


Hank Burger, 55 Rue des Archives, 75003 Paris - OMG! The best vegan burgers I have ever eaten. Lots of options to choose from and very reasonable prices. Although the place is very small, the staff is very welcoming and friendly and speak English fluently.

Kilo-shop Kawai, 65 Rue de la Verrerie, 75004 Paris - a vintage shop where you pay for your clothes by weight. It has a lovely interior and an impressive range of clothes sorted by colours and patterns.


Las Vegans, 30 Boulevard de Bonne Nouvelle, 75010 Paris - we had very tasty and inexpensive hot dogs there. Again, a very friendly staff. We had to wait a bit longer for our order so we were given lemonade in compensation. 

Jardin des Plantes, 57 Rue Cuvier, 75005 Paris - Royal Botanic Garden. A wonderful way to chill out on a very hot day in the city, especially if you want to get away from the crowds. It displays countless varieties of plants and an electrifying range of flowers.


Surprisingly, none of the pictures are related to the recommended spots, but, to check the places, you can always visit my Instagram: @Missplayground

25 Facts About Me




I rarely write something here but since there has recently been another blog anniversary (6 years!!) I thought it's a good time to introduce myself a little bit better.

1. I always check if there are any spiders in my shoes before I put them on.

2. I am 28.

3. I originally come from Czestochowa in Poland. I have been living in London for nearly 9 years. I love this city and I don't have plans to move away any time soon.

4. I have been a vegan for two years now; before that I was a vegetarian since the age of 13. I never really liked meat.

5. One of my passions and hobbies is painting.

6. I have major concentration problems. I cannot really focus on one thing for a long time, for example while writing this post, I have already been distracted a few times, checking mails, other websites. 

7. I love watching Friends. It's actually sad how much of my life I have spent watching it. It really uplifts me and makes me laugh. Even when I watch the same scene for the twentieth time.

8. When I am sleepy I get really grumpy.

9. I have one small tattoo. I did it when I was 13.

10. I would love to go to Japan. It's right at the top of my wish list. I love Japanese culture, literature, movies etc.




11. I don't know if I will ever go to Tokyo because I don't like flying. It's not a risk of crashing that puts me off, rather being closed in a little tube for so many hours without option of leaving it even for a second.

12. I very easily get excited, even about small things.

13. I have a strong sense of humor. Not to everyone's taste and not everyone understands it.

14. I am 173cm tall and yes, I am aware of the fact that I look much shorter in the pictures.

15. I love reading books. Murakami is my favourite author.

16. I love listening to running water. It calms me down.

17. I think I am an ambivert. I am quite shy when I meet people for the first time (especially when I need to encounter bigger groups and I am on my own). But once I get to know them a little bit better my extrovert side is revealed.

18. I love veggies, rocket salad, tomatoes, kale, cauliflower, radishes to mention just a few :p If I had to choose only one group of food I would have to eat for the rest of my life it would be them.

19. I am addicted to Instagram. 

20. If I like a particular song I can listen to it on repeat over and over again for a really long time.



21. I am scared of bees, wasps. When I was about 10 I got stung in my neck which started swelling. I couldn't breathe and ended up at emergency in hospital.

22. I am a typical cancer. I think too much I over-analyze everything. I am very sensitive, intuitive and empathetic.

23. I secretly enjoy watching Deal or No Deal game show. It even makes me emotional when I watch how supportive the contestants are for each other and listen to sad stories of the participants. 

24. I started blogging in 2009 and then, after two years, stopped for a while. When I decided to start doing it again I was so embarrassed by my old photos that I decided to delete all the content. Now I regretted it a bit. We could all have good laugh at some of them.

25. I am terrible at learning languages. I started learning English when I was 7 so over twenty years ago and it is still far from perfect and I still make lots of mistakes so please, excuse me if you find any above! :-)
