Heart Evangelista shared a peek into her life in Paris in one of her recent Instagram videos.
In the video, Heart can be seen strolling around different establishments in Paris all by herself.
"Today I decided to walk all by myself around Paris. Those of you who know me know that I have so much anxiety when I’m by myself," she said.
She added: "But sometimes, you got to learn how to do new things and explore and, you know, learn for yourself."
One of the establishments she visited is a restaurant where she had her breakfast.
"I had a nice cappuccino and as you can see naubos ko 'yun, napakasarap. And I had granola. And I had blueberries on the side to balance it out," she said.
The actress remarked that she has been learning and loving to be independent.
“I’m learning to walk alone and being independent and being totally by myself. And I kind of love it!”
In the same video, Heart shared that one of the highlights of her day was visiting a pet store.
Heart explained that she is not buying a pet dog as she will not be living in Paris. She decided to visit a pet store just to spend time with dogs.
"It was so relaxing to see these [dogs]. Super duper cute. It just made my day. Just being surrounded by pets and animals just really takes away all my anxiety," she stated.
Netizens were quick to react to Heart's video and commend her for choosing to be independent.
"Aww so sweet! Walking alone, dining alone, doing the things that makes you feel full alone - are really all forms of self-love♥️♥️♥️ I love doing that too," one netizen said.
"Enjoy lang 'yung life, every second of it ma'am. Let only the positivity flow, para lagi lang glow," another fan commented.
Heart traveled to Paris late in September for Paris Fashion Week. She has been on an extended stay in the city following the conclusion of the fashion week.
During an Instagram Live early in October, Heart shared that she recently purchased an apartment in Paris.
"I just got myself an apartment so I do not really plan to buy anything else because I have like all of my nice furniture. I really want it to be very, very nice. And so I am saving up for that," she said in her Instagram Live.
But she clarified that she will not be residing in Paris as she has work in the Philippines.
"I'm not living [in Paris]. I have work here [in Paris] and work in the Philippines, and kailangan natin ng work, because, you know, kailangan natin maging independent to pay for your stuff and [hindi] humihingi ng anik-anik. So kailangan super work tayo," she stated.
In the same Instagram Live, Heart also highlighted that her recent trips to Paris were for work and not for leisure.
"A lot of people ask me about fashion week and they ask what I do here, puro lakwatsa, emeng ganyan. Hindi ho, trabaho ho siya. Hindi siya madali. Maganda lang siya and masaya siya kasi it's something that I love to do. I love dressing up," she said.
"And it's really a full-time job. You know, I've never really been the type who just stay home and wait. I'm very creative with my time," Heart added.
Heart's extended stay in Paris came amid speculation of her rumored separation from husband Chiz Escudero. Both camps are yet to address the rumors.
