I’ve spent the last week working to tie up the loose ends on major projects for the rest of the year. I’m really looking forward to taking time for myself to soak up the festive atmosphere of Paris during the holidays. Starting this weekend we have family and friends arriving for various holiday visits which will be so much fun and is also a first for me since moving to Paris. I may or may not take a break from posting Weekend Links while I have visitors in town, but if I do just know that I will eventually be back. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 49 include a look inside the reboot of Karl Lagerfeld’s 7L bookstore, an interview with the L/Uniform founder, and a story about Le Bristol’s bread. Enjoy!
It’s hard to believe it’s actually December. The temperatures really dropped in Paris this week and the decorations seem to be emerging (slowly but surely). I’m very excited for this month and am trying to get as much done as possible work wise in the next two weeks and then will take some time off to start 2024. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 48 include how Christofle changed its image, an ode to the Lady Dior Bag, and a Notre Dame update. Enjoy!
If you’re ever thinking about visiting Paris in October…do it! The weather is generally mild, the leaves are starting to change and the fall light is incredible. The first half of October was absolutely crazy, crazy busy (you can read about why here), so we were thrilled to head to the US for a couple weeks of relaxing at the end of the month. The October 2023 recap features exactly where I ate and drank, shopped, and what I did during the month in Paris.
This weekend I’m looking forward to starting decorating for the holidays. It’s been hard to wait but it seems like yesterday everyone agreed it was the time to start. I saw the first trees for sale at flower shops and a little boy stopped Boomer and I walking and asked when we were going to decorate our house (he started last night!). I shared two fun personal updates with members this week that I’m keeping exclusive for them. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 47 include sets of photos from Saint-Tropez and Normandy weddings, an expressive Parisian apartment tour and the best dining deal in France. Enjoy!
It’s officially, officially the most wonderful time of the year. I love everything about the holiday season and look forward to it all year, which I know is irrational. I love the decorations, the music, the foods and the parties, but more than anything I love the moments spent with loved ones. I’ve been especially looking forward to this year’s celebrations thanks to two very exciting personal updates that I’m sharing exclusively with members.
