Links I Love Week 1

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a great rest and you have enjoyed the slowdown. I have enjoyed it almost too much and I am not ready to start back on Monday. Daily naps have become one of my favorite activities and I have stayed in my pajamas until noon with no complaints. I am ready for a restart, a health jumpstart, and a clean slate. I usually don’t make goals until later in January. I am going to approach it differently than in years past because lets be honest, 2020 was hard.

I cleaned out my closet over the holiday, donated clothes, and realized there are a few categories I would be okay with not purchasing in 2021. Bras, underwear, probably workout pants, and skincare. I could make it well into the middle of 2021 without purchasing lotions or serums. The one thing I am missing is a good eye cream. I love the Sisley one, but the price is high and I am looking for something more affordable. I did not love the Caudalie one, so in the theme of clean beauty, I purchased this one from Kiehls. I promise to follow up with feedback.

Enhance your family zoom calls especially with little ones with these ideas. I am going to try this app with Bobby and Emma to do games. We did enjoy watching Soul on Disney Plus together.

I barely made it through a book in 2020, but the last couple of days I took time off I am about halfway through Mistress at The Ritz, and I will finish in the next week or so.

Context Travel is a great resource to learn about Paris and do some virtual cooking. I love this Galette de Rois class happening this Sunday. You can use code EDP10 for 15% off.

  1. I just found your blog Every Day Parisian and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!! You have so many interesting stories and suggestions. I plan to purchase many of the items you talk about in your blog. I got tears in my eyes watching the "Dancing Dad" commercial- beautiful. I also appreciated the Free Printables- very useful.
    Thank You for having such a GREAT blog!! xo, Donna Rose

    • Hi Donna,

      Thank you so much! The "Dancing Dad" commercial was so great. I am happy you loved it!

      Keep in touch and I hope you enjoy reading. xo

  2. I discovered your blog about a month ago and have been LOVING it! Thank you for sharing such great content. I feel the same way about not needing skincare or loungewear for a looong time. My pajama assortment has never looked so good…For eye creams, if you’re still on the hunt for an affordable clean option, I really like the Follain Eye Cream. It has bakuchiol (clean retinol alternative) and works for me both day and night.

    • Hi Sarah,

      Thank you so much! I am always on the hunt for clean beauty options. I looked up Follain and it will be my next eye cream purchase. The reviews are great. So far, I am loving the Kiehl’s one I bought.

      I hope you had a good first week of 2021. Keep in touch! xo

  3. The eye cream I buy on repeat is Shiseido Benefiance Wrinkle cream. So hydrating, and remains so through the night.

    Agree with you on the Caudalie one. I played with a sample a couple weeks ago. Quite suboptimal. I’m over Caudalie, for the most part ….

    • Hi Marsi,

      Thank you for sharing your favorite eye cream! I will check it out.

      I am sorry you didn’t have very much luck with Caudalie. I think their products can be hit or miss. I do love their night oil and it is affordable.

      Happy New Year and lots of love,

    • Hi Susan,

      Thank you! I am so happy you enjoyed the holiday commercial too. Have a great Sunday. xo

  4. Thank you, this is my first time getting your Sunday Links I love. It touched everything! Looking forward to more!

    • Thank you so much, Kelly! I am so happy you enjoyed them. My grandma used to send me newspaper cutouts of articles when I was younger so this is a tribute to her each week ❤️
