I am safely back in the States after a whirlwind of a trip to Paris. Leaving Paris is never easy for me but I am so happy I had the chance to visit, make new memories and take you along for the ride via The Paris Diaries. Keeping up with work on two different time zones was challenging and there were a lot of moments I felt overwhelmed. I decided to take a break from Links I Love because I simply didn't have the time to do everything. Thank you for your patience.

Things I LOVE
You may be a little tired of hearing about this mirror from Anthropologie but I finally got it. It was waiting for me when I got home from Paris. I had to move a few things around but you will see it in an apartment update soon!
I didn't bring home much this trip. I barely had time to shop with my busy schedule but I had run out of my favorite Caudalie Night Oil. I literally stopped at a Pharmacie on the last hour on a Sunday to bring it home. For those of you with dry skin, this is a game changer. I wear it every night just a few drops goes a long way and a bottle can last you around 6 months. My skin is hydrated and glowing the next day.
A huge Merci to my friends at Cafe Melango for sending me home with coffee and my first Chemex. Has anyone tried a Chemex before? This may have just changed my whole coffee experience. Stay tuned for more details!
You may have heard me talk about this nail polish before but my manicure lasted a whole two weeks. There are a million color variations but "bubbles only" is the only one that lasts on me. Plus it is the perfect color for Autumn.
