Sooo I’ve been back in Paris for nearly a month now and I’m finally getting all of my travel photos developed and organized which means… I’ve got a lot of travel posts to share with you guys! Continue reading
This past week I discovered a new region of France and toured some amazing châteaus in the Loire Valley. Previously home to French royalty and international nobles, most of the castles lie just about two hours outside Paris by car, though some are as little as an hour away. I’ll show you my favorites below, and a couple of insider tips as well!
If you’ve been in Paris at all these past few months, you’ve surely seen denim popping up all over. Not just on runways during fashion week, but in store windows and on the bodies of the fashion-conscious. Of all the jean-inspired items out there, I was most hesitant to give the denim skirt another try but it’s a trend I’ve grown to love! Worn the right way, a denim skirt can be the perfect standout piece in a variety of looks.
Below, I’ve selected my fave 5 denim skirts below in a range of prices. Continue reading
So if you guys are anything like me, you’ve got a serious love for all things chocolate. I’m so excited to share with you my new favorite Paris address where my two dessert favorites – Ladureé and Chocolat- are combined. Et voilà: Les Marquis de Ladureé! Tucked away just next to Place Vendôme, it’s a specialty Ladureé boutique focusing on chocolate. Here, you can find everything from a dozen new, chocolate-based takes on their classic macaron to seemingly hundreds of homemade chocolates and truffles, to even totally chocolate versions of Saint-Honoré and Religeuse pastries. If none of the above sound like the perfect summer treat, they also have their own ice cream cart right out front serving up some incredible flavors.
Of course, everyone knows and loves the classic Ladureé, but this chocolate version blew my mind in the best way possible. I hope you guys check it out and love it as much as I did!
