Links I Love Week 10

paris france by rebecca plotnick

This week was an interesting one. I had my head down focusing on organizing my taxes for my accountant and felt a little drained from creativity. I think it is easy to say taxes will do that to you. My desk is filled with post it notes as ideas came up on future post ideas. I have a few upcoming Spring posts for Paris including what to pack for all of those who are headed there for Cherry Blossom Season. I also had a few first dates this week, which one took place at a Vegetarian Restaurant. If you didn’t know, cooked veggies aren’t my favorite thing ( I prefer chocolate) I came home craving a burger, but at least I tried 😉 

This week’s links are so full of good reads. My favorite out of the whole list is the Goop Interview with Oprah. I highly recommend a cup of coffee and listening to this one this Sunday morning.

Thank you so much for being here and reading! xo
