We are gearing up for a full weekend while also trying to enjoy the (potentially) last bit of warm weather in Paris. I’m personally ready for full fall mode. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 40 include a look at a seaside city loved by Parisians, a list of Champagne cocktail recipes for the holidays (it’s never too soon), and a simple vinaigrette recipe. Enjoy!
