Things I love:

1. Paris Can Wait with Diane Lane and Alec Baldwin. I don’t see many movies but when they involve Paris how can I say no? The movie takes place in the south of France as they take the scenic route to Paris. If you haven’t seen Under The Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane I highly recommend it. 

2. The new Sisley Fragrance Izia has arrived and it is based around the scent of Rose. It is perfect for Summer. I don’t wear many fragrances since I suffer from migraines but this one doesn’t bother me and the scent lasts all day. 

3. I saw this Paris Wall Decal of The Paris Metro at my friend Kat’s this weekend and I am in love! This happens to be the line I lived off of back in 2013. I have the perfect spot in my house for it. Kat had hers going up the stairs which was super cute! 

4. Nuxe Oil. It is finally warm enough in Chicago for bare legs. My skin has been so dry with the cold weather. I have heard enough about Nuxe dry oil over the years I had a bottle on hand so I tried it last night. I loved how smooth my skin was after using it. I was worried it would be shiny and feel greasy but it didn’t at all. I can’t wait to use this all Summer long. They have one with a gold tint to it as well if you want to add a little shimmer to your skin. 

5. Paris Street Style Coloring Book. I have heard for a few years ago coloring is great for stress relief. My friend Leyla of Second City Mom gave me this book for Christmas. While I was at my sister’s this past week she had to get rid of Emma’s non-washable markers. I jumped at the chance because I was in need of markers for the coloring book. Perfect timing! 

If Emma sees this coloring book I know I am in trouble and I will have to share. So cute and it feels so good to color!
