For a relaxing afternoon, the Kapuso socialite suggested to chill with a cup of coffee at the Ritz.

 Considered as among the world's most luxurious hotels, Ritz Paris has been the subject or setting of many of the world's greatest literature, including F. Scott Fitzgerald's "Tender Is The Night," Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises," and William Wyler's "How to Steal a Million," which was adapted into a movie starring Audrey Hepburn.

4. Shopping in La Vallee

“If you want to shop and you don’t want to overspend, you can go to La Vallee, it’s an outlet. It is really good to go to that,” Heart suggested.

Located in Cours de la Garonne, 77700 Serris, about 35 minutes away from Paris, La Vallee Village is a designer outlet complex with over 110 fashion and lifestyle boutiques.

5. Taking #OOTDs in Eiffel Tower


For Heart, visiting Paris is not complete without seeing the Eiffel Tower.

“Of course, the Eiffel Tower, you can really take a nice picture,” she said.  

Her favorite outfit, she said, is usually all-white, punctuated with a red lipstick.

Heart recently graced the launch of L'Oreal's new EmpoweReds collection in online platform Lazada. The collection, also now available in beauty counters, is composed of five different shades of red and aims to provide bold, all-day matte color, ideal for Valentine's Day, Heart's birthday.
