Links I Love Week 24 Year 2024

luigi capri beach club

Thank you so much for all your support with Wells Street. It was wonderful to meet those who stopped by with smiles and enthusiasm for Sunday links. The last couple of weeks have been a whirlwind. Monday and Tuesday were filled with some exciting work calls. A dream I have been manifesting since the beginning is taking shape, and I have butterflies when thinking about ideas.

This week, I am spending some time in my first love, Italy. My husband and I are in Capri for a few days, unplugging and recharging before jumping back in for a busy second half of the year. A long time ago, I met Holly and Gianluca, who run a cooking school on the island. It has become a tradition to spend an evening with them each visit. Instead of Gianluca cooking for us this time, we will learn how to make pasta and hopefully bring the skill home. You can see some of the behind-the-scenes on Instagram.

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

Once we are home, I will share our trip’s details, including where we stayed, ate, and what I packed. This is the view from our balcony, which is the backdrop while I work on links I love.

This week, I’ve included links from big publications and a few Paris bloggers who have written excellent articles I wanted to highlight. I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Ohhh, I’m so sad to hear about Francoise Hardy! I was listening to hear all weekend and didn’t realize she had passed! Her music is so beautiful.

  2. I am a long time subscriber and always look forward to–and enjoy!–each one of your posts( and calendars!! thank you!)
    I am a user of diclofenac,both pills and gel.I have discovered,though. that the gel is harmful to dogs if they lick it.As a loving “fur ball”mommy to our two Yorkies, I thought it
    beneficial to pass on this information to other dog parents who might be using it as well.

    • Thank you, Natalia. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention and other dog moms from EDP. I will keep an eye out for Henri. xo

  3. I was recently in Paris and developed a sore throat – the pharmacist recommended Endomune + a throat spray and it worked like magic. I wish NHCO products were more available in the U.S.

    • Thank you, Jennifer! I wish I had popped by a pharmacy in Italy before boarding the plane back home for some of this magic.
