Weekend Links Week Four has sixteen articles about France…I included a few extra since it’s a holiday weekend! Some of my favorites include photos from Brigitte Bardot’s former home in the South of France, 19 fascinating things in French supermarkets, links to take a virtual tour all around France, and 10 favorite French rosés for under $30.
As I mentioned in Wednesday’s post, we’re officially halfway through 2020 which is crazy to me. Tomorrow will be my first Fourth of July in France. I would be lying through my teeth if I said I was excited about it. I’m going to attempt a Fourth of July spread in Paris complete with oven-baked ribs and potato salad. This week you’ll find a great basic French cookbook to have on your bookshelf, the “Dior Untold” podcast, Gris Rosé (which might be my summer favorite), French summer produce favorites and more!
Getting halfway through the year has never been something I’ve paid attention to before, but suddenly there are reminders all over Instagram and I’m writing a blog post about it. 2020 is full of surprises I suppose! While I certainly wouldn’t have expected pretty much anything that the first half of 2020 has brought, I have learned quite a bit.
In Weekend Links Week Three there are thirteen articles about France. There are plenty of changes going on in Paris and throughout the country – notably the pollution has returned to the pre-virus levels, Orly Airport and the Eiffel Tower reopened this week, and Paris Fashion Week will go on this fall. There’s also a Condé Nast Traveller contest to win four nights in the South of France that you won’t want to miss!
This week was a hot one in Paris and the only place to be was outside, which meant my first summer picnic of the year as well as a gorgeous brunch in the Baccarat garden. While at Baccarat, I saw the Virgil Abloh Crystal Clear glasses and they shot to the top of my wish list. This week also marked the reopening of more museums in Paris like the Musée d’Orsay and Musée de l’Orangerie – great options for a heatwave because they’re air conditioned. It really is starting to feel like summer, which of course means I started craving BBQ…read on for the spot!
