It’s definitely not summer anymore. Fall is coming to an end and winter will be here soon. Yet I am so happy to be in Paris. There are so many exciting things going on in Paris right now that I just don’t have enough time to see them all. Here is a small snapshot of what I’ve been up to. J’adore Paris!
The small details and accessories are what can take an outfit form okay to exceptional. Sometimes it’s something you can’t see like special lingerie that makes you feel sexy and sometimes it’s something more obvious like a killer pair of heels. Here are some details that I find inspirational and beautiful.
What are your favorite style details? What accessories make you feel special?
Some living rooms are just comfortable. The invite you in, welcoming you to curl up with a book and a cup of tea. You want to sink into the sofa and you instantly feel at home. They are designed to be lived in. These pics inspire me and I can only hope to have a living room as lovely as one of these someday.
What do you think? How do you make your living room into a cozy, inviting place to be?
Do you know where you will be in January? Where you will be living? What your job will be? I don’t. I don’t know if I’ll be in Paris or somewhere else. I don’t know if I will be employed or not. Or if I will be taking classes or not. I don’t know. I’d like to say that this is liberating but in truth it’s terrifying. I want to find a job I love in a city I love. I want so much. What if I can’t find it? What if I find nothing or have to compromise too much? Some days it’s enough to make me want to hide under the covers all day. But I can’t. So I go to classes. I apply to jobs. I hope and dream and pray. I try to embrace this uncertainty and to let go of control. I try to have faith. But damn is it hard sometimes! Any advice? How do you deal with uncertainty?
This lustable is a beautiful way to add scent to a room. This electronic diffuser is not cheap but then it will outlast any candle. I love products that merge design and functionality and this definitely does this. You can buy an assortment of Diptyque’s beloved scents to add to the diffuser. Your house will smell so good you might never want to leave!

Fall is here. I can no longer deny it. Instead of mourning the loss of summer, I’m trying to focus on the bright side. There is the return of root veggies and kale, the chance to wear sweaters and boots, and the crispness of the air that perfectly invites a snuggle session and a cup of tea. Fall is one of my favorite times of year in the fashion world. It is much easier to look chic when you are not perspiring heavily or huddled inside five-thousand layers! Fall is easy. Throw on a skinny pair of pants, tuck them into a great pair of boots, add a sweater and an interesting scarf and you will look great every single time. In the spirit of fall fashion, here is my shopping list for the season. What’s on your list?
This is the kind of meal that personifies summer. It’s light, fresh and simple. It relies upon the best ingredients available because there are so few of them. It’s easy but heart satisfying. While I look forward to the root vegetables, hearty greens and warming foods that symbolize fall, I must first say goodbye to summer. This was one of those goodbye meals.
