Weekend Links: Week Eight

weekend links week eight paris morning pont royal

I caught up on some much-needed rest last weekend which changed my entire week. Romain and I had an early Valentine’s Day dinner at home with caviar (served with both chips and blinis), a special steak that my dad carried on the plane to Paris from Dallas, and Aligot. We decided it was going to be our new tradition going forward. On actual Valentine’s Day I had a fun lunch with girlfriends at Mon Square. I rarely go out for lunch during the week and it was a great reminder that I need to do it more often. Being self-employed has pros and cons, the biggest con for me being I’m not very good at taking breaks or time off. This weekend we have a lunch that I’ve been looking forward to for a while but otherwise no plans. I’m looking forward a relaxing weekend before heading out of town next week. Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week Eight include Thom Browne’s guide to Saint-Tropez, a must-visit Paris restaurant from Anthony Bourdain, and an amazing experience at Palais Garnier. Enjoy!
