Travel Vlog: Paris & London


Happy Monday!

Our trip to Paris and London back in 2012 was so beyond exciting for me. It was my first overseas vacation in a very long time (the motherland never counts!), I was going away with Waseem, & hello he ended up proposing to me in Paris! Literally a dream come true. Fast forward 3.5 years, a week away from 2016, both of us burnt out from an extremely busy, but amazing, year and our friends convince us to go to London with them on 6 days notice! We didn’t care that we were running on fumes, we were so excited to jetset with our friends and revisit an itinerary so near and dear to our hearts. My individual Paris and London photo-diaries are on the way but I wanted to share my vlog with you the moment I finished it today! Our 2012 trip was my very first travel vlog; and it wasn’t very good haha so I’m excited to come back with a do-over! We were corny sightseers the whole time so hopefully this isn’t too boring. Enjoy!!

While we wait for the full photo-diaries, here are our Instagram photos from the trip!

Be sure to follow us if you aren’t already! @irenesarah x @waseemstark

& if you’re wondering how Waseem’s photos look so great…


lol!! Just kidding, Waseem did an amazing job on my photos too, and hes able to do it without looking like an idiot haha!

    Love it, you 2 are just too cute together mashallah! My husband and I are planning a stop in Paris this spring on our way to Spain and your video just got me so excited =) I just got a GoPro camera so I can record our trip but having trouble figuring out how to piece together videos and pictures. Any recommendations on a program to use?

      Thanks so much! your computer should have something built in.. iMovie if you have a Mac or windows movie maker on a PC. I believe GoPro might have some software too but I’m not sure

    I’m a new follower. These pictures came out beautifully. Very inspiring for our next vacation photos. I always find it’s hard to go glam on vacation but you execute it very well.

      Oh girl there’s a reason why all my vacation photos are the back of my head haha!!! Thank you so much and welcome to my blog!!
