It’s hard to believe that this it’s already week 30 of Weekend Links. It seems like time is really flying by this year. Some of my favorites from the week include a free virtual exhibit from the Museum of Impressionisms in Giverny, how to bring back the Salon experience (and not the salon for hair and nails), 30 photos from Slim Aarons that capture the essence of summer, and a list of new ice cream shops to try in Paris. I hope you enjoy!
Happy Friday from Paris! It felt like I pushed the reset button after a very fun, but broken up week last week with the Fête Nationale on Wednesday. After almost six months of waiting (just five days short) I finally picked up my Titre de Séjour, my French residence card, this week. Unfortunately, almost all of the horror stories you hear about the French administration are true. It’s just part of the experience! This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features the croissant from Le Boulanger de la Tour (it’s worth going out of your way to get), a note about traveling to Paris during les vacances, a book on French Château Living and more.
Certain editions of this series are more robust than others and that is certainly the case with Weekend Links Week 29. There’s lots of good information regarding the health pass which is important to know if you’re traveling to France soon. Some of my favorite articles include an interview with Omar Sy from Lupin, the best food lessons from a French mother-in-law, news on a new Julia Child documentary, baguette secrets and photos of the beautiful Château du Grand-Lucé.
With a Wednesday holiday this week has felt like a series of Mondays and Fridays. It made the week go by quickly, but I’m also ready for a “normal” routine. Five Friday Finds from France features a bit from my first Fête Nationale in Paris, the incredible Ducasse-sur-Seine dinner cruise in Paris, significant news regarding vaccinations in France and more.
After a busier than normal (and very fun) week, I’m looking forward to a leisurely weekend at home hopefully filled with lots of cooking. Weekend Links Week 28 features a lot of articles to recap the Fall 2021 Couture shows in Paris, a few French-inspired recipes perfect for summer, plenty of France travel inspiration and more. I hope you enjoy!
