The struggle is real. The musings of your trip to Paris are cut painfully short when you open up the website for The Four Seasons George V- the most prestigious hotel in the city- if not Europe and the bill for one night are equal to your monthly rent. Despite imagining yourself stood on that balcony, posing with that box of Ladurée macarons (for your rapidly growing Instagram account), in those killer Louboutin sling-backs you’ve been dying to wear since just about…forever…. You are broke- And the likelihood is, that you will never be able to afford the premier suite at The George V.
