This week was a long but fun one and I had to slow this weekend down to catch up on life and sleep. If you have been following along this week was a whirlwind after a hot and windy Wells Street I jumped a plane to NYC for my first meet up. Ladurée and four fabulous authors in a backyard garden made for the perfect setting. I explored NYC and added more places on my Paris meets NYC list which I will be updating and sharing soon. Croissant research is hard work but I am happy to do it! I have a lot of takeaways from my first event and I can't wait to make this community bigger and better.
This Friday I hop on another plane but this time I am headed to meet my family. If you have seen me in the last couple of weeks you have heard me talk about my big family trip abroad which will be with my niece and nephew. To say I am excited to explore a new part of the world with them is an understatement. While I won't be headed to Paris with them even though Emma has been begging for the Eiffel Tower I will be working hard to set up content for you these next couple of weeks you won't even know I am gone.

The Give Back Box - For me since I run a business out of my home I am constantly getting boxes and taking them down to recycling. This helps reduce the clutter and helps get your donations out of the house and into the hands of people that need it.
Bastille Day Plans for Chicago. Who is joining in on the fun?
http://rstyle.me/n/cpjaa6b98pfA few other highlights of NYC include a facial at my favorite skincare company. I will be the first to admit I drank the Kool-Aid with this one. I have been using Sisley for over a year and there has been such a difference with my skin. If you were at the event they did my makeup. Fresh glowing face with a red lip. I have such dry skin and I am loving their newest black rose collection. It is perfect for flying.
Petit Marseilles is now available in the United States and Canada. When I first arrive in Paris I head over to Monoprix to pick up my toiletries (soaps and liquids) I am a big fan of the Poppy scent and the lavender everything. It makes my suitcase much lighter and if I am staying in an apartment I will make use of the products for the next month or so. I was so happy to hear you can now pick up my favorites in the US at Target and Amazon. (For those of you in Canada that asked here is a link just for you! )
