Links I Love Week 17

paris france in the spring

This weekend I am in Nashville, celebrating a friend’s Bachelorette party. I tried to plan ahead with links so I could focus on the party and having fun over the weekend. If you didn’t know, I am a HUGE Country Music fan so I am looking forward to spending time in Nashville. I have been a few times before but never with someone that knows the city well so this will be a different experience. I hope Spring weather has arrived in your city and you enjoy some time outside in the sunshine.

My friend Beth Kirby of Local Milk is launching a podcast May 8. I am all about podcasts as they put me right to sleep. Anyone else have favorites I should add to the list? NPR How I built this is always a good one. 

Le Creuset launched a new more affordable brand called Sorbet. How cute are these? 


Sisley has introduced a new hydrating Serum to go along with the Hydra Global Moisturizer that I currently use. My skin is SO dry to this is a great addition to my routine. My Sister makes fun of me for all my steps but I really think it makes a difference!

I purchased this Radiance Serum from Caudalie during the sale and I have seen noticeable results already. My skin is GLOWING! For the same price as just the serum you can buy this set of 3 from Sephora. Bonus!

My friend Kat bought me this Caudalie French Kiss Lip Tint that is a beautiful color and hydrating.

For those of you asking for my nail polish color it is this one by Essie and my lip color is Burgundy. I also really like Poppy! 

If you are in NYC, I have something special for you! My friend Katie Donnelly who does all my photo shoots in Paris is offering one of you a one hour photo session and a $50 credit. You can sign up here! She will be in NYC this May. This can be for best friends, sisters, girlfriends, Aunts, anyone! 

I ordered this blanket in white from Boll and Branch. If you have been following my sleep goal this has been a great addition to my bed. You have to wash the blanket before using and it turns SUPER soft. I love using this laundry detergent on my white which smells heavenly. 

From Speakeasies to Clubs, Where to Go out in Paris

I bought this skirt and I am already in love. The sizes are selling out quick. I purchased an XS which I was worried about but it totally fit and wasn’t even tight. For reference I am usually a 2/4. 

Straw bags were all the rage in Paris. I can’t decide if I should keep this one I just bought. Thoughts? 

I ordered these leggings on SALE for $17 so I bought both colors. More pants for the gym means less laundry 😉
