I’m sure by now you are so tired of hearing about my trip to the U.K. and Paris, but the week has finally arrived—we leave on Thursday! I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get just as much joy out of planning and thinking about an upcoming trip as I do when I’m actually on the trip. I’m super excited because I won a free 30-minute session with this service called Flytographer, that pairs you with a vacation photographer in over 200 cities all over the world. I’m always so bummed to get home from a trip and find that I have next to no photos of my husband and me together, as one of us is always taking photos of the other. Ok, fine—it’s usually my husband taking photos of me for this blog! Since I am so lucky to work with some of the best photographers in the country for work, I’m sure curious to see what I think of the experience. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
In the meantime, here are some things I’m packing for my trip and some interesting things around the web.
We just rewatched the movie Julie & Julia last week—this time with the director’s commentary. Have you seen it? I’m so obsessed with romantic comedies, and it was fascinating to hear Nora Ephron (what a loss) talk about each scene.
I swear by this French pharmacy brand and can’t wait to stock up on products when I’m there.
I’ve really been into this app called Depop lately, where you can buy and sell merchandise. The platform looks like Instagram, but it is the best way I’ve found to buy and sell clothes I no longer wear. The J.Crew jacket pictured in the opening photo of this post I bought off Depop for only $59 to wear in The Cotswolds.
We were lucky enough to score a reservation at Rossoblu on Friday night for an early birthday celebration with dear friends. It was one of LA’s most anticipated new restaurants of 2017, and I see why—maybe the best Bolognese ever!
