Tuesday was a holiday in France which threw my entire schedule off, but also made the week go by quickly. It was an exciting week with lots of fun announcements including the return of Paris Christmas walks, my new memberships, and a limited edition vintage French Christmas collection. Tis the season! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 45 include a lovely feature on my friend Latrice who is behind Paris Chic Code, a look inside the recently reopened Cartier boutique in Paris, and tributes to Julie Powell. Enjoy!
