1. Sadaharu Aoki

The best patisserie in paris for Asian fusion. Flavour packed treats, that look too good to eat. I love the combination of flavours they have and the packaging is so chic, all in white.

2. Bon Marche and Colette

They are my favourite boutique, department store experiences in Paris. The sales teams are very helpful, english speaking (for ignorant fools like me) and the buy is wonderful.

3. Marie Mercie

A must stop shop for me every time I'm in Paris. I just love these whimsical sometimes surrealist hats. They add some fun and chic humour to every outfit. Although they have a store in London the selection is much wider in Paris.

4. Hotel Coste

It's still one of the coolest places to grab a drink in a courtyard. Brush shoulders with the fashion, music and movie industry here, while sipping slowly on your long glass.

5. E.Dehillerin

The best cookery shop in the world. They sell everything, and the copper pans are to die for.

This month as part of our coverage of fashion weeks across the globe we've asked a selection of world's best fashion bloggers to give us an insight into what they get up to during their busiest time of year. Where once bloggers may have been shoved to the back of the room, nowadays the internet-savvy fashionistas are offered pride of place, often sat front row rubbing shoulders with the fashion elite.

So how do they cope with juggling catwalk presentations and parties with uploading content and keeping their followers up-to-date with their every move? And more importantly, what do they wear!?!

We've already been wowed by the blogger diaries from New York Fashion week (check out Kristina Bazan from Kayture and Ella Catliff of La Petite Anglaise) and in London beauty blogger and one of Grazia's regulars Lily Pebbles from What I heart Today shared her backstage beauty diary. We also heard from Daniela Morosini Of Couture & Crumpets who gaves us her tips on how to survive Fashion Week, Millie Cotton from it's a LDN thing who showed us round the shows and Ella Gregory of Coco's Tea Party, who, like Millie, joined the fashion pack at The Apartment where she ate pizza, read Grazia (natch) and met Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling - yes really!

Finally we arrive at our final stop in our journey around the fashion cities, Paris, where the lovely Peony Lim has provided a whistlestop tour of the French captial in the way of her top 5 Parisian picks. From trendy boutiques to hotel bars, find out where this uber stylish London girl shops, eats and sleeps when she's in town - in between attending all those fashion shows, of course!
