Weekend Links: Week 30

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!

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.

Weekend Links: Week 27

While it’s not a holiday weekend in France I’m definitely pretending that it is one. I’ve decorated my window boxes with all sorts of red, white and blue. Hopefully my French neighbors don’t mind since we share the same colors after all, although I did take inspiration from Clark W. Griswold. I have a fun weekend planned which will culminate with some of my favorite American foods on the Fourth of July. My favorites from Weekend Links Week 27 include 10 inspiring quotes from The Little Prince, looking back on 60 years of Diptyque, a piece on why the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc still fascinates today, and a very good Paris guide. Enjoy!

Weekend Links: Week 26

Weekend Links Week 26 is here which means we’re almost halfway through the year – kind of hard to believe. This weekend I’m in Normandy which is always a very welcome change from Paris. I wish the trip was longer but even just a couple of nights will be so relaxing. I’ll probably spend most of my time hanging with sweet Dalton. Some of my favorite articles from this week include a list of 20 cult films about the Côte d’Azur, the most beautiful exhibitions to see in France this summer (including one I’ll see this weekend), timeless Eugène Atget photos of Paris in the 19th century, and the history of Van Cleef & Arpels. I hope you enjoy!
