Links I Love Week 7 Year 2024

Paris booksellers on the seine everyday parisian

Happy Sunday from Utah! I am here with my family for a ski weekend. Links typically take me all week of reading and curating. I worked hard to pull these links together during the week, and I am scheduling them a little in advance while doing them on the plane ride so I can be present with my family. ($8 well spent on airplane wifi)

Links I Love Week 7 Year 2024

This week is excellent! Enjoy these for the long weekend. 

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

We are all celebrating with the news that the Parisian booksellers, known as bouquinistes, are allowed to stay during the Olympics. It was once up for debate, and the city was looking at removing them. They are very much a part of Paris’s history. 

The Clyde trench is back at Sézane. It sold out so fast last time. I wear a 4/36 for trench coats from Sézane. So many of you have asked when this item will be restocked. Now is your chance!

15 places to see cherry blossoms in the United States. No plane trip to Japan or Paris is required via Afar. 

I bought this lotion from Credo last year with ski weeks in mind. This is an excellent moisturizer for dry skin, especially for cold climates. I packed it for Utah and am so happy with my decision and this oil. My husband made fun of me watching my skincare routine prep for the flight out. It was worth it!

Boll and Branch just added this dream blanket. I would love to try it for spring. It looks like the perfect, cozy, cool layer. 

What a hotel concierge is and what they can do for you via Afar Don’t underestimate the power of a concierge at a hotel. I always lean into them when I travel. While I do a lot of research for the blog, there is always something new to be discovered.

I finally decided on a black dress! Yulia and I will probably shoot it next week so I can share it with you all. It’s a well-constructed, beautiful dress I can wear for multiple events over the years. 

Has Saint Laurent created Paris’s most stylish bookshop? I’m adding this to my list for Paris.

This makes me so excited for the farmer’s market season. I always pass by this vendor and have never stopped. I love supporting small businesses like this and can’t wait to try their offerings in April 

Oat milk vs almond milk, which is healthier. This is a conversation that has blown up my DMs on Instagram. Oh my! You may enjoy this article.

I made lemon cake this week, but it didn’t turn out as well as I had hoped. I remembered this was the recipe I made in the past and enjoyed. I’m taking a second attempt this week! 

Notre Dame’s new spire was revealed after the devastating 2019 fire. 

A first look at Hotel Hana, a new opening in Paris, I am intrigued to check it out on my next trip. 

Olympics could impact travel all summer long 

Speaking of Chicago, we are getting a new French restaurant. Alyssa and my friend Kat also sent this to me. I made a reservation for date night and will report back. I didn’t love the restaurant’s other Chicago restaurant. I’m curious to see how they do French food. 

Food and Wine share’s their favorite places to eat and drink in Chicago 

I watched this comedy act by Taylor Tomlinson on Netflix on Valentine’s Day and was laughing so hard. If you are looking for something funny and light, this is it.

  1. Rebecca, have you ever considered having your fans send you their own favorite personal photos of Paris for you to review and perhaps show on your posts? I think it would be fun.

    Best, Daniel

  2. Lots of great links today (go skiing more often).
    I can’t get too excited about La Grand Boucherie. From the previews it sounds like a redoux of Le Select. We really looked forward to that one and it was so disappointing. The prices are New York prices which also doomed Le Select. It really doesn’t matter how much was spent on decor, people go for the food.
    We love the smallest, simplest places in France that have great food.
    Another problem may be that since the pandemic, the Loop has emptied out during the day and will people go there for dinner. Will the food match the prices? Dinner for two will easily top $200.

  3. I started putting a small bit of sweetened cocoa in my coffee (in lieu of sugar) after a trip to Costa Rica four years ago, where the breakfast coffee station included a small jar of cocoa powder with a spoon. Not too much, I don’t want it too sweet nor too chocolatey (not looking for a Starbucks Mocha at home, too much of both). But just enough to be noticeable. It’s so good and now good to know that it is healthy.
