Links I Love Week 20

rue richer Paris

This week, I updated a bit of our front room with the arrival of this cabinet. I still need to move over all our books which will hopefully happen this Sunday afternoon. Our matching navy couch is almost finished in production and will arrive this summer. (fingers crossed) The countdown to my big summer art fair is on, and I spent some time prepping products to sell, including new notecards. I may have gone a bit overboard!

Grab your coffee and croissants, and join me for links I love.

I absolutely loved this interview with Bobbi Brown and her new venture. Leave some time to watch the whole clip.

  1. LOVED the interview with Bobbi Brown — AND the Julia L-D podcast (listened to Jane Fonda and Ruth Reichl). Much needed and appreciated wisdom from exceptional women this week. Thanks Rebecca!

  2. Was anyone else disappointed to learn that the iconic Bobbi Brown story wasn’t exactly true? I’ve read watched interviews where I’m told that with meager savings & 10 lipsticks she went to Bergdorfs and the buyer loved them and off she went to become an iconic makeup success that she later sold to Estée Lauder. Now it seems that her husband was her partner all along. I’ve loved her since I was a teenager and would read the credits for the amazing photos that were in Glamour Magazine and Mademoiselle. Bobbi Brown makeup artist was my hero loved her work her attitude. Now I find out there was someone else involved it was a let down.

  3. Thank you for that Frenchly post re: the ETIAS. I’m going to be responsible for prepping about 20 co-workers for a bi-annual trade show in Paris next June and need to stay on top of that situation! I’m saving the link for my show prep items.
