Links I Love Week 15

Luxembourg gardens Paris in the spring

I am officially back from Paris, and if all goes well when you are reading this Sunday morning, I will either be sleeping or have caught up on some rest. I had long nights in Paris, balancing work and late dinners, and I am way overdue for some sleep. On the flight home, I only napped shortly while we were delayed on the ground for take off. I can’t wait to share more about my trip with you later. If you were not following on social, there were some great meals that are must-visits. The Paris Guide will be updated with these new locations so you can start booking those reservations ASAP.

My last night in Paris, I had the most amazing stay at Royal Monceau, and as I packed up to go to the airport, I took two croissants for the road for the morning.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s links I love.

I picked up a few items from Sisley Paris this week at duty-free. I love this hair oil, a little goes a long way. It smells so good and keeps my ends healthy. I also grabbed a backup lipstick in sheer rosewood that I love so much, which I forgot to pack for Paris.

This straw Sézane bag is begging to be used this summer. I picked one up in Paris to be used in Chicago. I also got these shoes which I am obsessed with, and walked all over Paris in them which is surprising. I ordered a size 8, and I am usually a size 8.5.
