Links I Love Week 37

everyday parisian in Paris

I am in Florida for the weekend visiting my family. I surprised my niece and nephew which made for a very fun school pickup. It is a combination birthday weekend for both kids. I am helping my sister with a birthday party before flying back to Chicago on Sunday.

The Paris and Italy calendars will go on pre-sale on Friday, September 16th. Hint, the Italy calendar this year is beaches and it’s dreamy! 😍 You can see last year’s Paris calendar here.

My fiancé and I attended the Green City BBQ in Chicago on Thursday and we loved it. We attend the farmer’s market regularly and this was a special event they put on every year. I have already decided that we will get tickets again for next year. A lot of readers expressed interest in the event and I will make sure to remind everyone to grab tickets before it sells out. 

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

Why CVS and Walgreens still print photos. This is a valid reason and it is a good reminder to print your photos. As a travel photographer, I print my photos after each trip but not as many family photos as I should.

My fiancé and I started registering last week which was both exhausting and fun. We had a head start but will probably do the rest online.

How to clean a wood cutting board. If you have been around here for a while, you know I love a clean kitchen. This is so helpful and a good reminder. I am leaning towards registering for new cutting boards for the wedding and starting fresh after all these great tips. 

I love these new arrivals from Cuyana along with the pop or red called poppy for their leather goods. This coat looks so cute! This v-neck cashmere sweater.

I spent a lot of the pandemic using Duolingo and now I am ready to try out Babbel. My friend Cécilia says it’s better. There is a great discount going on so I signed up for 3 months for under $30. 

I love fall but can skip all the Halloween and pumpkin decor and skip straight to Christmas. I am already shopping the Williams Sonoma Christmas Preview

My Biossance order arrived. A lot of you ordered the same items. This set has eye cream and serum for a discounted price. I also ordered this face cream for winter as I have dry skin and needed the extra boost.

J.Crew released Fall new arrivals. I rounded up my favorites in this post here. They brought one of my favorite coats back in beautiful colors. I want this coat in navy. Watching for a sale.

  1. If you’re serious about upping your French game, you should check out the zoom classes from Coucou. I’ve been taking them on/off for the past year and a half and it’s really the best thing for really getting a hang of the language, finding other lovers of the language and testing your skills when you’re not in France. It’s also awesome that they have so many levels, so you can test into which class you think would best fit you. Would 100% recommend.

  2. Hi Rebecca
    I will be looking forward to your thoughts on Babble. I too heard it was better than Duo which i’ve been using since pandemic began. This year I signed up for a one year subscription to Babble, promo. I liked it at the beginning but didn’t find it relevant as the course progressed. I was doing both Duo & Babble for months. Back to Duo for me, I am wondering about the subscription Duo, do you have that?
