I remember as a child I was dreaming and wishing to go to Paris just to see the Eiffel Tower. When you are a kid in Africa you don’t have too many choices. Traveling and exploring the world seems a distant dream, but I always kept my head up high as my hopes. I didn’t know if I would ever make it to Paris at all, but I just knew someday I will get a chance to see this beautiful country and visit the Eiffel Tower.  When I got the chance to come to America, I was so excited because I knew this little girl dreams came do come true and that I’m going to continue to dream and someday, you never know, I just might be lucky enough to actually visit Paris. My friends always tell me I want it all and that I’m a big dreamer but I will be honest with you, I do want it all and I never stop dreaming because it makes me work really hard and I get to see all my hard work also can pay off. So that’s what dreams are for, right?
It took me 9 years since I got to America to finally visit Paris and it still seems so unreal. I can’t even believe I was there. You guys, this trip is such a big deal for me because I’m  a adventurer but I couldn’t figure out how I would get to Europe. I was afraid to go alone, I wanted to share the experience with someone special in my life, I wanted it to be right at the right time. As you can see, I had lots to take in to consideration before taking this big step. At the end of the day, I made it and it was special with my favorite person in the world by my side. I will say it was magical.

When we first landed in Paris it was late and I was so tired but I couldn’t wait to see it all the next day and when the day came I was so happy. We walked everywhere and I saved the Tower for last. It looked as amazing just as I expected and I remember feeling like a kid again hahaha. It was so crowded, people from all over the world come here to see this beautiful “Iron Lady” as I called it and it’s totally worth the travel. I read that is the most visited commercial attraction on the planet. Of course I visited the tower a couple of times to see the three shades printing progressively lighter with elevation, in order to augment the structure’s silhouette against the canvas of the Parisian sky. On my last day in Paris, I went back again, this time very early morning to watch the sunrise behind the tower and that’s when I shot these beautiful images of the tower while wearing one of my favorite designers: Laura Basci.

There were almost nobody there so early in the morning. What a chance from the evening or during the day when it is packed! It made it all that more special. If you’re looking to enjoy the view and have some alone time with the Eiffel tower I’ll recommend going on a Weekday morning. Such a great way to feel the love in Paris. My boyfriend asked me again why is this Tower so important to you? And I told him because since I was I child, I dreamed of this moment and now I get to live in the moment and it’s just so perfect. I don’t want to ever stop dreaming.
