Links I Love Week 16

As you can imagine, a lot of this week’s articles were centered around the fire at Notre Dame. I arrived to Paris on the Eurostar from London just as the news broke that Notre Dame was on fire. I plan on writing more on this topic this week now that I am home along with some photos. I stayed away from the fire and the Seine that evening but ended up walking by the next two days. I had just been in for a private tour back in Notre Dame back in March. There were about 10 of us total between the choir and the private tour inside Notre Dame.

La Cuisine has a new Fromage and Wine Discovery class. They have great food tours and highly recommend either a cooking class or tour with them when visiting Paris.

The one thing I can’t leave the house without is mascara. Even for the dance studio, I always have some on. I love this one from Benefit but I have been playing around with trying a few new ones. Do you have a favorite?

What Notre Dame Means to Parisians and All of Us

I am currently looking for a new Series to watch on TV. I am open to suggestions. Has anyone watched The Collection ?

I just had drinks here with friends last night. I loved the atmosphere and music. It is a perfect spot for friends or a date night spot in the city. The Hoxton just opened this month and it seems like it is already THE place to be.

I love this one piece bathing suit for Summer.

Last month, I recorded my first podcast with The Earful Tower. It is now published for you to enjoy. How to Photograph Paris

Polka Dots are BIG this Spring/Summer. This top is 40% off and currently in my shopping cart. Now I just need a good white jean to go with it.

I really love my DSLR Canon that I have had for years. But this new Fuji camera was so much fun to explore London and Paris with. The camera is lightweight and the images are high quality.

  1. Thanks Rebecca! My fav link was the podcast and I’ve followed earful tower now cool finding another Aussie doing their thing in France! Xx

  2. I have used Benefit’s ‘They’reReal’ for a few years. I haven’t found any better. We will be finishing our month long April in Paris. Who would believe we only had a little rain on one day!

    • Hi Joanne,

      I honestly think Benefit is one of the best out there. It lasts ALL day and the price is great. My only thing that I don’t like is that I always have raccoon eyes when I wash my face and it takes eye makeup remover to clean it up. But I guess that is part of the staying power 🙂

      You are so lucky to only have one day of rain. I was there in March and I think I got all the rain for you. Almost 10 days straight of it.

      I hope you had the best trip!!
