This week was busier than expected and I did not get everything I had planned finished – including a fun update just for members which I promise is coming next week! It feels like it’s rained for two weeks straight, even though I know it hasn’t. Luckily the festive decorations are making up for the onset of winter gloom in Paris. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 46 include some of the world’s most beautiful shops (the Paris inclusions are favorites of mine), a gorgeous Paris apartment tour, and where the chef of the Ritz eats on her days off. Enjoy!
