I wrote down trends that I noticed in Paris and predicted they would shop up this Fall in the US. How did I do? The only trend I forgot to mention was velvet. Huge fan and I am glad it is back in so many ways.

If you are interested in the blogging world, I highly recommend this book. All of these women are such an inspiration. I am learning about so many new amazing bloggers through this book.

Beauty empties that I love and use on repeat include: My shampoo that is almost gone. I will restock in Paris. I have been on the same bottle since the beginning of the year. This goes to show you how often I really wash my hair. My moisturizer finished without warning this week because it is in a pump. My eye cream is on its last few applications. Is it the full moon to finish all these at the same time? What are some of your favorite beauty products you purchase on repeat?

  1. Do you use the Klorane conditioner too? I think I’m going to try the shampoo, my hair is in desperate need of a change with better products.

    • Hi! I do use the Klorane conditioner as well. I only condition my hair maybe once a week and use a mask the other day. My hair has totally changed only washing it a few times a week 🙂 It takes a little time to get out of the oil cycle but once you do, it is a game changer!

  2. I’ve been to Bouillion Pigalle and loved it! Really great, traditional (heavy) food in a fun, updated atmosphere. It was loud in a good way. Be prepared to wait in line, but I thought it was worth it, and you can get a great cocktail afterwards at the nearby Glass.

    • Thank you, Beth! I will check it out and your recommendation for Glass. You know everyone! Let’s get coffee when I am back from Paris. Lots to catch up on!
