Links I Love Week 8 Year 2024

Paris in the winter everyday parisian

It has been an eventful week! We are prepping for next weekend when the family will be in for a big event. This will be the first time my husband and I have hosted everyone. We are having a lot of fun getting the house ready. Henri has no idea the chaos and love that is about to fill the house. 

On Friday, I booked a new French spot to try, which was a total bust. (Patty, you were right!)  My husband and I ended up walking the streets of Chicago in the snow and crazy wind, looking for a second dinner. It was a memorable date night. We decided to try a new coffee spot that we loved. The line was out the door at 3 pm, buzzing with energy. They have croissants from Dan, the baker. I need to give a taste test one of these days.

How to bring the Parisian design trend into your home. These articles tend to be clickbait, but I loved this one, and it may help my campaign for a ceiling medallion. 

We started watching “One Day” on Netflix. I can’t say if I love it just yet, but it has me a little hooked. One of the episodes takes place in Paris. If you are curious where the locations are from the show, you will enjoy this post. 

The coffee mug you choose is as important as the beans you choose. 

I am so excited to share I am partnering with Artifacts Uprising this year. They printed our wedding album, which I made for our first anniversary. (paper) I loved it so much that I reached out to them. You can use the code EVERYDAYPARISIAN15 at checkout for 15% off.

I finally brought out this mini bucket bag for a shoot and can’t wait to carry it this spring. It’s a perfect size for a phone, wallet, and keys, and the brown is beautiful. I fit a bouquet of red tulips inside for the shoot and will share soon!

How To Eat Locally In The Winter

I bought this adorable linen top in blue. It would look so cute with a pair of white pants or a skirt tucked in. I have a similar silk blouse from Boden that I wear ALL the time! 

How to add flavor to soups and stews with a parmesan rind. You can easily find these at Whole Foods. They sell just the rind. 

Speaking of soup recipes, I had a similar soup in Park City and wanted to create this at home. It still needs some tweeks since I added more chicken than the recipe called for I should have increased the garlic and ginger. Overall, it was delicious, and we enjoyed it for lunch throughout the week. 

This week’s best sellers include two adorable pieces from Boden, and the J.Crew Factory flats I own are back and under $100

I started “Winter Garden” on the plane since we didn’t have wifi. It was already downloaded on my Kindle. The book was easy to get into, and I enjoyed it. I found myself finding every chance to read it and finished it early this week. Kristin Hannah is a fantastic author, and I loved how she incorporated Russian history and culture into the book, giving it another layer. 

For Channukah, I got my sister an NYT subscription. She loves it and enjoys reading the articles often. When I saw her last weekend, she sent me this one on “How to Survive Long Haul Flights” and told me to add it to this week’s links!

I may have redeemed myself for the lemon cake! Yulia was over for a photo shoot, and I pulled this one together. I love this pan from Emile Henry, which I typically use for banana bread and lemon loaves. It works great! 

How does poor sleep affect your mood, and what should you do? Via NYT, I have the Oura ring and am constantly working on my sleep. I need to write a review on it; I love it! It offers way more insight than the Apple Watch. 

The art above the bed has shipped and should arrive early this week. I can’t wait to see it hung! This is a preview of what it will look like. We have dark blue walls, and they will pop. 

One of my goals this year was not to buy more skincare until I worked through what I had on hand. I am a skincare junkie and have collected a good stash. These Caudalie products are some of my favorites right now. I love this mask for detox, use it right after the shower and rinse with warm water. Also, this rich cream for during the day in the winter. It smells so good! P.S. Dermstore is having a sale soon so add to cart. It will be hard for me to resist.

  1. Salut Rebecca! I just got home from France for the first time and so I signed up for all the great blogs to keep me feeling like I was still there! I love this blog, I love all of your ideas and suggestions, things about France, and then tips and links and tricks about stuff here at home in the US. I already can’t wait for next Sunday’s email!! xx
    PS – I have been studying French since the 8th grade and finally put it to real use this last month in France, would love a conversation partner if you know one!! 🇫🇷

  2. Always love your Sunday “Links” but unfortunately the link to the small bucket bag appears to be broken.

  3. I tried to open up the article on chocolate. It only shows a paragraph and then wants a subscription. Are you able to re-send the link so that it can be read without purchasing a subscription
    Thank you,

    • Hi Debbie,

      I am sorry about that! It appeared to be an open article when I read it yesterday.

      Thank you for your understanding,

    • Hi Mary Ann,

      I am so sorry about that! I worked for me last night as an open article and I was able to read it. Normally, I wouldn’t include it if it had the paywall. Thank you for flagging that for me.
