This week has been a busy week with home and personal life. My Paris trip is still happening and I am ironing out some of the details of the trip. I typically go to Paris solo so taking a group of 20 feels overwhelming especially after not being in the city for almost two years. The wrapping paper was a HUGE hit and also very time-consuming to package up each order. I sold out of my first run and placed a reorder to fulfill current orders. I will be phasing this out for a bit while I make room for the Italy and Paris calendar which is launching this Tuesday. 🥳 If you have your eye on the wrapping paper for the holiday, I would grab it now before the second run is gone. Email subscribers will see the calendar covers first and can place their orders.
Grab your coffee and croissants and join me on the blog for this week’s links I love.
The big news of the week is the change France made in terms of travel. American unvaccinated travelers are banned.
Convert a Foreign Vaccination Card to a Health Pass for France I submitted my information through this site for the Paris trip in October. I will report back once I hear anything.
In case you missed the Diptyque Paris candle. It is perfect for Fall. I have it in my entry and it smells so good!
I am totally crushing on this Emilie Henry loaf pan. The ruffles make it so much better than a traditional pan.
A Big City Chef Brings a French Bistro to the Chicago Suburbs. I am a frequent diner at their neighborhood spot Gemini Bistro. So, I am excited to give this a try.
Last week I shared my Hill House Nap Dress, the brand has launched a whole new collection for Fall and it is adorable. Shirts, jackets, and accessories.
The Bonne Maman calendar is back in stock on Amazon at the original price plus FREE shipping! I grabbed one. These sell out so fast. Also, it’s a perfect way to Frenchify your breakfast.
I bought this belted wrap dress for Fall. I can totally see myself wearing it in Paris in October. (So, I sized up as this brand runs small)
The Fall Sézane lookbook is here! There are so many pieces I want. So, it doesn’t go on sale until Sunday. Bookmarking a bunch and will add what I am buying as things go live. I need to prep for Paris in October.
It’s sweater season. How pretty is this sweater in the navy?
Chicago was just voted the second most beautiful city in the world. Yup, Chicago beat out Paris. (via Timeout)
They lost their fathers on 9/11 and then they found each other. A love story and the silver lining from the tragic day in history. This is a WSJ article and may require a subscription.
The Paris collegiate sweatshirt is back in stock and perfect for Fall weather. I love the pop of red.
Bake a French Apple Cake. This one was so easy and delicious. I will be making it again.
