I’m not going to lie, last week really took it out of me. I gave a mini-update earlier this week, but between a trek from Paris to get vaccinated (worth it) and almost more work than I can handle (which I’m incredibly grateful for) I was absolutely exhausted by mid-week. I’m so looking forward to a relaxing, fun weekend! I think Weekend Links Week 24 is a fun one too. A few of my favorites include a piece on Little Lady Liberty’s journey from France to the US, a list of nine beautiful villages in the south of France, more on the stunning new hotel literally inside the Château de Versailles, and a beautiful Parisian apartment tour. I hope you enjoy!
Another week has seemingly flown by thanks to lots of excitement in the air. Life is finally starting to feel like normal again in France with restaurants, visitors and more. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France has an overarching bag and basket theme. There’s a fabulous wicker cocktail basket from My French Country Home, a French-inspired embroidered market basket from Tory Burch, my summer market tote modification and more. I hope you enjoy!
I’m so excited to share the latest extension of my print shop – Paris and Normandy phone cases! I wanted to go into a little more detail about the cases to help you make the best decision as well as share a mini update ahead of tomorrow, which is a very exciting day for a lot of people. June 9th – the day France reopens to tourists!
Weekend Links Week 23 is here! The most exciting news of the week is undoubtedly that France is officially reopening to tourists on June 9th. I can’t wait, but will also be savoring every last moment of Paris as it is currently. I’m sure it’s something I’ll never experience again in my lifetime, and as difficult as it’s been at times it really is unimaginably gorgeous. Some of my favorite articles from this week include an upcoming exhibit of Normandy through David Hockney’s eyes, the 10 best cheese shops in Paris, a tour of a literal Parisian dream home, how to properly clean champagne glasses and more. Enjoy!
Happy Friday from France! It’s really starting to feel like summer in Paris with warmer temperatures and significantly less rain. It seems like everywhere you look preparations are underway to begin welcoming visitors again. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France include Bernardaud’s ‘Tout Paris’ porcelain collection (that I’m dying over), an exciting new Cannes outpost of one of my all-time Paris favorites – Harry’s New York Bar, a new book dedicated to Provence Style and more.
