Paris

So we made it from Bordeaux all the way to Monaco, and our trip was coming to an end. But before we could leave, we had to spend a day in Paris – the place of dreams, extravagance, and fashion. We couldn’t experience it all, but what we did see will forever hold the warmest of places in my heart.

Remembering France

A couple of summers ago, we spent a week driving through the south of France. I literally shook on the flight from New York to Paris because it had been ten years since I last stepped foot in France and I still couldn’t believe I was going back. We landed in Paris and immediately took the SNCF to Saint-Michel in Bordeaux. From there, we rented a car and began our scenic journey through small villages and towns eventually ending up in Monaco before returning to Paris. Follow our journey from Bordeaux to Monaco below!

Canadian New Year

My boyfriend lives in Canada. I know, bummer right? Although his move back home hasn’t been easy, mini trips to see him and vacations there have certainly helped. Originally from Quebec, he wanted to show me his home province during its most magical time, the winter holiday season. With only a week to get everything in and dodge the brutal cold we spent as much time, as we could tolerate, walking through the streets of Montreal and sitting in its warm bars and cafes.

Unfortunately, it was so cold that most of my days involved layering and bundling up to the point that I couldn’t get dolled up for our outings. My hair was constantly flattened by hats and my face was mostly covered with a mega scarf — he called it, “the ski look”. But despite that, I had the time of my life. Montreal and Quebec City have amazing architecture and culinary experiences and I am so excited to return…in the summer. 😉

So, happy New Year from us. We hope that 2018 brings so many blessings and lots of prosperity!

Resolutions in Decor!

Here we are in the beginning of a brand-new year with so many opportunities to make new decisions and lifestyle changes. As we grow and change, it’s important to make sure our personal space and atmosphere reflect the changes in our lives. So this year I’d like to think about making a resolution in decor. An office space is invaluable to anyone. It should permit comfort but also help generate creativity. Using Wayfair, I found the perfect pieces to create an in-home office space. Look at some of them below!

I enjoy many differing styles and would love for an intimate space, such as an office, to incorporate bold colors and reflect my innermost self. But I can confidently say that such a space would need to be very clean and light to help me keep an open mind — beginning each day with a blank slate.
