Links I Love Week 42

As you are reading this weekly roundup, I am headed back to Chicago on a plane from Paris. It was a very full two weeks and in some ways, it exceeded my expectations. I had a great time showing the Atlas Adventures girls around Paris with a bike ride through Versailles, an Eiffel Tower picnic, a macaron class, and a private shopping experience at Sézane. I tacked on a few days at the end of the trip to soak up the city. We were so lucky with the weather and it only rained briefly on the day I arrived.

I had an amazing trip but I am also looking forward to snuggling Henri and sleeping in my own bed.

If you aren’t on Instagram, there is a lot to fill you in on from the last two weeks in Paris. This video is a fun one from my stay at Saint James Paris.

Watch Jimmy Falon share his love for Nancy Meyers movies. I have been following her on Instagram and she has hinted at a new film she is working on. 

While I may have packed in a carry-on to get to Paris, there is no way it is happening on the way home. I picked up a good amount of Caudalie and pharmacie products for friends/family back home. 

I have stumbled upon a few brocantes (antique markets) while in Paris, this website tells you which ones are happening and the location each weekend.
