Links I Love Week 5

Happy February! Can you believe January flew by in a blink? It was a bit crazy for me. I hosted a really fun event at Diptyque in Chicago this weekend for their limited edition candle and fragrance. In case you missed it, in January I announced a group trip to Paris. I am taking 20 girls to Paris with two other bloggers. Oh, and I learned to ski on a weekend in Colorado. I am still working on my goals for 2020 which will be posted next week.

On February 2nd, the French eat crêpes, here is why.

If you are in Paris, here is a list of my favorite places to eat crêpes and a recipe to make them at home.

Travel is about commas, not exclamation points. From Samantha Brown. I remember watching her on TV when I was younger thinking she had the coolest job. I never expected to be where I am now.

I had a reader write in asking about French Beauty products for dry skin. I sent her an email back but also turned it into a blog post just in case other readers had the same questions. It was an instant hit!

These are great to pack in your travel bag. I flew home from Colorado last Sunday and was suffering from a terrible headache (not sure if I was getting sick or the altitude) I drank one of these before bed and I woke up feeling 100x better then the day before. Plus, I slept through the night which was a major win for me.

My Everlane leggings arrived early this week. I bought both the black and green colors. The material took some getting used to as they aren’t your typical Lululemon legging. They are slimming, soft and super comfortable. Plus, they are half the price of the regular Lulu legging.

  1. Paris is a vegan dream! There are so many vegan restaurants and vegetarian restaurants with vegan options opening in Paris each year. I also have a gluten intolerance still eat like a queen. Some favorites include: Le Potager du Marais, Wild & The Moon, Aujourd’hui Demain, The Friendly Kitchen, and Chambelland bakery. This past New Year’s Eve we celebrated at The Friendly Kitchen. They served an amazing gourmet 5 course meal which included a glass of champagne and wine. It was a beautiful dining experience and a memery I’ll treasure always.
