Links I Love Week 38

This week was BIG, I launched the “A Year in Paris” Calendar for 2021. This calendar takes you through the seasons and covers a year in Paris. I was very lucky to have found a designer who helped me put my vision together. The Presale started this week and the price will go up to $35 on Tuesday at Midnight. I have been overwhelmed with the response. Thank you to each and every one of you who has bought them for yourself and for gifts.

Now it is time to enjoy the last weekend of Summer. Grab your coffee and croissants and enjoy this week’s links.

The Last Thing Paris Needs is an “Emily in Paris” after watching the trailer, I couldn’t agree more.

If you are in Chicago, I highly recommend stopping in Old Town to hear the live jazz music from 5pm-7pm. This has been a quarantine favorite and I even brought my dad. I don’t know what took so long for them to write a story about this. Better late than never.

As I am finishing links for the week, I cannot forget Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away this Friday. I highly recommend watching this movie, “On the Basis of Sex” over the weekend to learn more about her story. I watched it on the plane last Summer and it had me in tears. She was so strong and never give up. Now we have to continue to fight in her honor.

P.S. You still have time to join the 100-day challenge. The last 100 days of 2020 is on September 22! I have been doing French and yoga daily and I already notice a difference in how my body feels and I am learning new French words and phrases.

  1. I’m with you on “Emily in Paris”. After living in Paris for a year I feel it’s so far from the truth. Although I’ll admit, I’ll likely watch it to get glimpses of the city I love so. There are a couple other Netflix series that are set in Paris and in French (may be dubbed or have subtitles but I watched them in VO), “call my agent” and “the hook up plane”.
    As always, a lovely Sunday morning reading your links 🙂 thank you Rebecca!

    • Thank you, Natalie! I was so hopeful about the series but it doesn’t seem to be relevant with the current times. I never got into "Call my Agent" but I need to try it again. Thanks for the reminder. Have a lovely Sunday. xo
