I am officially back from an incredible solo trip to Paris. Part of the trip was spent in Bordeaux for the dreamiest bachelorette party of one. You can see a sneak peek here and here. I can’t wait to share the experience with you all and encourage you to book some time away at the dreamiest hotel. It felt like I jumped into one of my favorite movies, “A Good Year.”
Henri and I had a love-filled reunion followed by many toilet paper rolls destroyed in anger (by him). But I think we are finding a balance between snuggles, walks, and playtime.

Diptyque has a pumpkin-scented candle out for a limited time. I haven’t had the chance to smell it but it will be gone in a flash so if you are intrigued like I am, snatch it before it’s gone.
I packed for Paris in my Away carry-on and Away tote bag and brought my Cuyana zip tote for walking around Paris. I also packed a Longchamp foldable bag, which I used as a checked bag on the way home. It was clear I wasn’t making it back in just a carry-on. I picked up a few gifts for friends and skincare for me that had my bags full!

One of the most asked questions in Instagram DMs was for the link to this t-shirt that I wore in Bordeaux. I over-ordered t-shirts recently but they came in handy as layering pieces. I am so happy with this purchase and I ordered this one in black and white.
My Staub pan is one of the most used pieces in my kitchen. I bought it as a gift to myself a few years ago and I love it. This is a great price and would make a great gift idea for a cook in your life.

This week’s best sellers. So many fun fall and holiday items included!
I had a lovely meeting with the Degrenne team in Paris and chose these bowls and plates for our kitchen at home. My fiancé has his own plates that are sentimental and I wanted to add white bowls and plates for the kitchen.
The weather was so dreamy and warm in Bordeaux, I left my Everlane sweater there. The hotel has been kind enough to ship it back to Chicago for me.
I recently discovered these depuffing eye masks. They look like an intense version of the Klorane ones I use which are more budget-friendly. I am tempted to order this for my wedding day because I know I will be puffy from crying and I don’t want to mess around.
The ballet flat is definitely a trend in France right now if you haven’t jumped on it yet, now is the chance. I always say that trends that are happening in Europe will be in the US so it’s best to make the investment now. I had dinner with two French friends and we looked down and the three of us all had ballet flats very similar. I swear by these Margaux flats for walking around Paris.
One of the best parts of my trip to France was my solo bachelorette party in Bordeaux. I had a spa day and stocked up on all my favorite French Caudalie skincare. This vinoperfect serum is a must! I also picked up this day cream and this night cream to add to my routine per their suggestion. I will report back!
The Fuel Shortage in France is Testing Commuters Patience I experienced this firsthand as it is a challenge to get an Uber or Taxi. Allow extra travel time.
