Links I Love: Week 33

petit palais paris france where to enjoy a café at Parisian museums

This week was especially stressful. I have been working on a secret project the last few weeks and it has me loosing sleep. By Friday night I was already in my pajamas by 8 pm and I was totally okay with that. Does anyone else like matching pajamas as much as me? 

This is one of the my accurate descriptions about being an entrepreneur. I found this graph and immediately sent it to my family. It is the most stressful but rewarding job.  Can anyone else relate?

Paris in the Autumn. Where to Stay according to Forbes

This past week, I attended Dîner en Blanc for the second year in a row. I had a reader reach out with a last minute ticket. We didn’t have to carry our table, chairs, plates so it was a MUCH more enjoyable experience this time around.

I would also like to hear about Paris from a child’s viewpoint. What is it like to live, play, attend school, and grow up to seek work.

  5. I’ve ready many of your book recommendations and look forward to checking this one out. Love you’re skincare and beauty posts! And would like to see more tips for outside of Paris. Maybe weekend trip from Paris?

  6. I am traveling to Paris for the first time in October. We are staying in the first arrondissement and I was wondering if you had any recommendations for places to eat or shop for food?

  7. Have you made plans to travel in France, outside of Paris? I’m starting to think about branching out a little. Where is the first place you’d go? Alsace? Loire Valley?

    • Cindi,

      Thank you so much! I hope you love the lipsticks as much as I do. 20-22 have been the most popular votes so far. My Mom and sister want to try them too! I have really enjoyed 20 which is Portofino. I can’t wait to try the red ones too. I would love to know what you think!


    • Hi Marsi,

      Yes! The lipsticks just hit stores. They are available at Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus I know for sure. The pinks are the post fun for Summer. I can’t wait to try the red colors for Fall.


  8. I’m always looking for a novel that inspires me to travel. I know you post about books you’re reading currently, but are there any that are your all time favorites? I’d love a round up of your favorite travel-inspired novels 🙂

  9. Thank you for sharing the Netflix French films post. Would love to read more about visiting the South of France during the off season, say in October?? Merci 💋
