I’m putting together Weekend Links Week Five from the Eurostar on the way to London. I decided late yesterday afternoon to take a very last-minute day trip to look at wedding dresses. I’m meeting my cousin who lives in London and am so excited to be back, even if it’s just for a quick trip. It’s going to be such a fun day. Some of my favorites from this week include a look inside the making of Chanel’s SS 2022 haute couture collection, a comparison of Ina Garten and Julia Child’s beef bourguignon recipes (I will definitely be making Julia’s version soon), and a great guide to Paris. Enjoy!
My most exciting plans for this weekend are Saturday night dinner with Dalton, and I can’t wait! Other than that I’m just going to catch up on some work and prepare for the always dreaded visa renewal appointment next week. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Four include a list of 19 restaurants to try in Paris, an interview with 100 year-old “it girl” Françoise Gilot, a list of the 100 best French movies of all time, and a sweet (and sad) story of love and a cherry tree in France. Enjoy!
This week didn’t go exactly as planned after I came down with a stomach bug on Monday. I spent two days in bed and spent the rest of the week trying to catch up (surprise, I’m not there yet). When I was sick it looked like the weather was gorgeous. Since Wednesday it’s been very grey – welcome to January in Paris! This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features Cédric Grolet’s gorgeous book for pastry lovers Fruit: The Art of Pastry, a cannelé recipe from Caudalie, my Paris apartment search and more.
Hello from Normandy! We came back to Paris last Saturday after a very fun holiday in the US with my family, but were already itching to get out of the city. I’ve never been to Normandy in the winter. We got in late last night when it was already dark but I loved seeing the remaining holiday lights. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Three include Paris apartment tours, a look at the unique croissant at the Ritz, an upcoming immersive Mona Lisa exhibit, and a list of 27 must-make recipes by Julia Child. Enjoy!
I’m back in Paris after being home in the US for the holidays. While I didn’t originally intend on taking such a long pause from posting, it just kind of happened and I must say I really enjoyed it. It’s nice getting back into my normal routine, even with the lingering effects of jet lag. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a time-saving travel tip for flying into Paris, somMailier which is a fabulous French wine subscription box, a newsletter by the real Emily in Paris and more.
