October flew by. It was such a fun, busy and beautiful month that felt very “normal” for the first time in a long time. The bright blue sky is gone and the rain seems to have settled in at least for a bit, which is a reminder that winter is coming. Holiday decorations are already starting to appear and I personally can’t wait. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 44 include a look at Karl Lagerfeld’s Rue des Saints-Pères apartment, festive Champagne punch recipes, several Paris apartment tours, and a list of 19 luxury hotels for literary buffs. Enjoy!
