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.
The pace of my work schedule is maybe finally starting to normalize a little bit…which I’m very ready for. I can’t wait to visit museums and mostly just incorporate some leisurely walks around Paris with my camera. My creative batteries are ready be recharged ahead of the holidays. Speaking of the holidays, this week’s Five Friday Finds from France features Ladurée’s 2021 Advent Calendar that’s available for pre-order, how the French do fall decor, and where to find a good spicy margarita in Paris for good measure!
