I didn’t intend on taking time away from Weekend Links, but while I was at home in the US we traveled on two Saturdays, which is when I usually put these together. I had a dog sitting on my lap both times, so using my computer was out of the question. I’m back in Paris and Weekend Links Week 31 is back. Some of my favorites include a cartoon guide to French colloquialisms, a list of the best hotels in the South of France, vintage Chanel references in the new Barbie movie, and a look at how Hermès scarves come to life. Enjoy!
