Links I Love Week 50

Shop Christmas in The Tuileries Gardens Print Here

It was a BIG week over here. I announced my engagement on the blog. I have been blown away by the sweet comments and overwhelming amount of love. Thank you so much!! Henri and I had a photoshoot together which is something I have wanted for a long time. The photos are adorable and I cannot wait to share them with all of you. They made me tear up. I had planned a trip to Paris this week for Christmas but ended up canceling as a personal decision. I am working on fulfilling last-minute Print Shop orders and making sure everything runs smoothly before taking some much-needed time off!

I had a haircut this week and ended up chopping a good 4-5 inches. It’s above my shoulders. I love it, but I am already thinking about how to grow it out for next year’s wedding.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for this week’s favorite links.

The 10 Best Things to do in Paris and What Not to Do

Paris in the Winter: A Traveler’s Guide to the best exhibitions and art museums 

I recently splurged on these Sheertex tights after seeing them from another influencer. I haven’t been out in ages but they came in hand for a last-minute holiday event. They are pricey but are supposed to be the strongest on the market. I ordered a medium. 

I finished “Tell Me Your Secrets” and the last two episodes were deeply disturbing. I am already on the hook for what happens next so I hope there is a season two. I also started “And Just Like That” I have mixed feelings but it was so emotional. Have you watched it?

I made this tortellini soup over the weekend and it was one of the best things I made all year. 

This Paris mug is adorable!! 

French Christmas Traditions 

I love these eye patches for late nights and puffy eyes. I use them all the time. They are great for packing in your travel bag too!

France adds COVID test for American travelers whether they are vaccinated or not.

New restaurants to try in December in Paris

This candle is one of my favorites and makes a great gift for a Francophile.

The Art of Friendship: It Was So Much More Than a “Friend Breakup”

I ordered two of these Henleys for layering pieces and I love them. I wash and repeat wear them so much! 

How can I get over my fear of failure?

This couple doesn’t exchange gifts at Christmas, this is what they do instead I like this idea!

I bought this Summersalt Swimsuit for an upcoming trip. 

New Zealand plans to ban all cigarette sales

If you don’t want to make a Bouche de Noel but would love to serve one, Williams Sonoma has them for sale. 

I asked for a Rumba-type vacuum for the holidays. I love this one and Henri’s not so much. I am amazed at how much dirt is in my home. Totally worth the investment and this one is cheaper than Rumba. 

How to socialize safety in the Booster era

Since getting engaged in October, I am a weepy mess of anything wedding-related. It is a water faucet of tears on a regular basis. I found this post on Wedding Do’s/Don’ts and it was so sweet and of course, made me cry. 

I love a good Christmas movie and I rounded up some of my favorites here I love to watch every year. Henri and I will be watching some of these this week!

My plaid pajamas from J.Crew are currently 50% off and I have worn them a few times since ordering them and I love them. They are cotton and not flannel and they have pockets. I wore them for my photoshoot with Henri!

There is a fun giveaway for my favorite Christmas tea and my teapot on Instagram that ends today.
