My friend Katie and I are teaming up for our Valentine’s Day giveaway this year. One lucky winner will win a photo shoot in Paris with a voucher to bring home their Paris portraits. Katie and her team shoot me when I am in Paris; they have captured many unforgettable memories over the years. You are in great hands for creating your special portraits. 

Avène released a new hydrating cream with SPF 30. I use and love their rich cream with SPF, which I think is a France exclusive. This is a great way to make sure you have SPF daily.

  1. You both look super cute with those red headbands! I’m just jealous that I can’t pull them off myself! (Believe me, I’ve tried)

    • Thank you! We have been talking about the red headbands for so long. It was the perfect time to break them out. xo

      The bangs help a lot to style the headbands.

  2. As a long-time EDP fan, I’m thrilled to see Katie vibrant and happy after overcoming cancer. Her hair is beautiful, and I love that you celebrate her with your matching headbands. That’s true love and friendship. And that’s all that matters.

    • Thank you, Trinity. You couldn’t have said it better. These photos are filled with joy and I am so happy to see Katie vibrant and happy and HEALTHY! I really appreciate your sweet comment. She is such a beautiful person inside and out and I am lucky to have her as a friend.

  3. Wanda, perhaps you can answer this question. What makes you write a comment like that? Are you trying to be hurtful? Would you say something like that to a person you actually know? I am so puzzled by internet trolls. What do you hope to achieve from it?
    P.S. I think it’s a wonderful photo Rebecca and the story that goes with the gorgeous headbands is even better.

    • Thank you, Fiona. That comment was not an easy one to wake up to on Sunday morning. We we had so much fun doing those photos together. Our friendship is something I cherish. These photos were such a gift to capture us laughing and enjoying life together.

  4. Wanda, au contraire, I thought that Rebecca and her friend looked darling with their red headbands, and were clearly having loads of fun. Why make such a hurtful comment?

    • Thank you, Elizabeth! We had a ton of fun. I had promised Katie one of those headbands for years. These are great memories of our friendship.

  5. I was embarrassed for you if you & the other woman walked around Paris with those awful red headbands eating & drinking . Quelle horrible
