Happy Sunday! This week’s links are packed for the long weekend. Don’t miss the two recipes that were home runs this week and plan to make them again. I had plans to travel this weekend and our flight was canceled due to bad weather. March will give me another opportunity to practice my ski skills and I am using the extra time to catch up and finish The Paris Guide which I plan to release this spring.

Grab your coffee and croissants and join me for links I love.

Traveling to Paris or do know someone who is? This safety post is always a good refresher on keeping your belongings safe, riding the metro, and what to look out for when exploring Paris. I wrote it back in 2017 and it is still one of my most popular posts. I recently updated it for you.

I also tried this Vodka sauce recipe and subbed in whole milk instead of cream. This was so good! I served it over rigatoni with chicken. A true game changer as I usually order this sauce out and now I just want to eat my own at home. I made mine in my Staub which is on major sale right now.

Blue Mercury has a sale for 20% off if you spend $200 or more. I feel like I am on a spending freeze when it comes to beauty serums until I move through my beauty cabinet.

The resurfacing mask from Tata Harper is a home run in terms of glowy skin after one use. If you need a pick-me-up in the dead of winter, this is it.

  1. I absolutely love Quince – there products are so well made, comfortable and reasonable in price. I have at least 12 pieces and they are my go-to shopping spot when I need an item. A huge plus is their outstanding customer service.

  2. Hi, Love Quince! I have the cashmere sweater and am waiting for another to arrive. Runs TTS. I am not a cashmere lover because I usually find it so itchy. These sweaters do not itch at all and the quality is excellent. Shipping is a bit slow (around 10 days) but they do keep you informed. I hesitated for a long time before purchasing, read all the reviews and looked at all the photos. Don’t hesitate…they’re great.

  3. I’ve been happy with my Quince purchases, a silk skirt and two dresses so far. The dresses (most recent purchases) took a while to get delivered, but I’m very happy with them, and I love the skirt and am planning to order another. Decent quality for a good price!
