Links I Love Week 26

Links I Love Week 26 | Rebecca Paris photography

I am officially on the plane to Italy. I am with my dad and fiancé who are both sitting on each side of me while I type. We are meeting the rest of our family in Lake Como for a week of exploring. This is most of my family’s first trip back since pre-Covid. I am very excited to see my niece and nephew, hang out with the family, and eat lots of pasta and pizza. Henri is in very good hands although I wish he could join us.

Grab your coffee and croissants or cappuccino and cornetto as I will be doing as soon as we land.

Thank you for joining me for this week’s links!

Once I am home from Italy, it will be the blog’s 6th anniversary! I have a few surprises planned. I also am hosting a small event at the Diptyque in Chicago. You are invited! There is limited space so make sure to RSVP. Special guest, Henri! 🐶

A few new things to watch:

Hotel Portofino – many have suggested I watch this. This is also a hint to where we are going in Italy. 

Murder in Provence – you need Britbox to watch but looks interesting 

Lincoln Lawyer – we have been watching this on Netflix recently. I would love to know if anyone else is watching or has watched.

My favorite gold Anthropologie mirror is 30% off.

I had the 3ft for many years before moving and now we have the 5ft. The price is very reasonable on sale. It is still a splurge item. If you have your eye on it, this is a great opportunity to buy it. You can see it in my home here.

I updated this Boutique Hotel post in Paris with two new hotels to discover on your next trip

The Laundress is 25% off right now. I know I talk about them a lot but they are really that good! It’s a splurge but with the discount it is reasonable. This also makes a great housewarming present. 

I am adding these chicken pesto skewers to my list of recipes to make for summer 

Summersalt is running a 30% off sale on their swimsuits which I have never seen before. I own the sidestroke in the pink. I love that they research the fit of so many women to make their suits flattering on all different body types.

  1. A few weeks back, you mentioned Victor Cabs in Paris. We spent two weeks in Paris (attending a pastry course!) and, upon your recommendation, called upon Victor Cabs both when arriving and departing. Thank you! They were wonderful – on time, polite, helpful, and efficient. We are grateful to you for bringing them to our attention – made the beginning and ending of our journey just perfect.
