Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend. I spent the week prepping for the Wells Street Art Festival. It’s a BIG weekend in Chicago as two art shows simultaneously happen: Wells Street and Old Town Art Fair. There are over 450 artists between the two shows and over 100,000 people. This is the first in-person selling event I have done since 2019. There was a lot of packing, printing, and organizing to prepare for the week. If you are in Chicago, you can stop by booth 180 on Wells St. You can always shop online at The Print Shop.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale starts July 15. Here are the details to start bookmarking and planning your sale strategy. I have always shopped the sale but feel it has declined in what it offers in the years.

Kerzon candles are back at Nordstrom.

They sell super fast! I have the Place des Vosges one. The brand sent me the newest Eiffel Tower one that is available on their site. Definitely check out their store when you are in Paris. Each candle is named after a place in Paris. They make great souvenirs.

Plum Guide is in the news. I love this site for finding curated Pairs of apartment rentals. They have high standards when it comes to hosts, cleanliness, and reviews.

I watched the movie, Audrey on Netflix last weekend. And I love her even more now when I see how much she gave back to the community and UNICEF 

I saw my first movie in the theater since 2019. Top Gun was better than I expected. I was entertained the whole time. I saw the original a while ago and felt I may need to watch it before seeing it. But we went very last minute and it turns out I didn’t need a refresh. I may want to watch the original this summer.

A lot of florists and designers have been asking for me to share. This is a slow start to my vision. I’m all about simple and neutral colors. I haven’t even shared this with my finacé but since the beginning, he said after we chose the venue it was all up to me. 

I am reporting back on the new Basil odor removing Diptyque candle. It’s SO good. I know they will sell out fast so if you have your eye on them don’t wait. You will thank me.

  1. Hi Rebecca,
    It was so nice meeting you yesterday! I wish I could have stayed longer to pick your brain on planning my upcoming trip to Paris at the end of September and just talk all things Paris. 🙂 I can’t wait to stay at the Pavillon Saint-Germain and will mark down the Agatha Pizzeria as a must try.
    Hope you had a successful weekend at the Wells Street Art Fair!
    All my best,
