I spent most of my week wishing it was Friday so I am so glad that it’s finally here! This week has been a cold one in Paris, which I suppose is seasonally appropriate but it seems like November isn’t usually this cold. Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone I think everyone can be on the same page that it’s officially the holiday season…even if I was ready to officially be in the spirit in October. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features several books that I’m coveting, Olympia Le-Tan Paris clutches, sweet Christmas cards with a French twist and more.
It seems like every year it hits a little earlier, but I’m in full on festive mode. I loved the holiday season last year and appreciated the magic more than ever, but looking back it was definitely a demi-Noël for numerous reasons. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a very exciting announcement of a series of Paris Christmas Walks I’m co-hosting with my friend Emily, a cheese-themed 1000 piece puzzle, an absolute must-have book for dog lovers (and Dalton lovers): The Golden Retriever Photographic Society, and more!
Between traveling back to Paris on Monday and Tuesday and having a holiday yesterday this week really flew by for me. It was nice having a little break after experiencing jet lag for the first time in a long time. Five Friday Finds from France features a special holiday collection at the Diptyque Boulevard Saint-Germain store, a Karl Lagerfeld book, an update on how to receive a French health pass and more.
This week I’ve been home in Dallas for the first time since January 2020 which is pretty wild to think about. It’s been busy but it’s great to be home and really doesn’t feel like time has passed at all, which I’m sure is the same feeling people have had after returning to France. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France includes a beautiful book from Buly, the Cire Trudon Christmas candle collection, a new coffee shop in Paris and more. Enjoy!
I think I’ll stop announcing my work schedule is slowing down because whenever I think that’s the case it ends up being false! I’ve enjoyed every single moment I’ve had to be outside and take in the beautiful fall weather. The leaves are starting to really change colors and it’s been so striking to see them against a bright blue sky. This weeks Five Friday Finds from France features a fun book on cheese, the dreamy Ritz Paris x Marin Montagut collaboration, Diptyque’s Holiday Collection and more.
