I’ve spent several hours over the last week clearing out some old photos on my phone and organizing the rest. Going through my travel photos makes me miss Paris all over again. (Le sigh.) I’m still hopeful that we’ll be able to visit later this year, fingers and toes crossed.
France at your doorstep…
In the meantime, I’m looking forward to the next My French Country Home Box, scheduled for delivery in May. My French Country Home Box is a subscription gift box, filled with uniquely French items hand selected by Sharon Santoni. The concept for the May box is “time for moi-même“, and what better theme for a Mothers’ Day gift? The contents of the box are kept a surprise until after everyone has received theirs, but Sharon has announced two of the featured French brands included will be:
- Imai jewelry, created by Julie Borgeaud. Handmade in Paris, and featuring stones, vintage rhinestones, pearls and 24-carat fine gold.
- Mademoiselle Saint Germain, clean and cruelty-free beauty products, created by two pharmacists.
You can read all about the most recent box HERE. (One of my favorite items from the last box was Miss Maggie’s Kitchen Cookbook, which features French recipes and ideas for relaxed entertaining. I’m looking forward to using some of these when we can host at-home gatherings again!)
My French Country Home box is prepared and sent quarterly. Shipping is free (and duty-free). You can also subscribe annually to receive an extra gift in each box, and save. These boxes almost always sell out so don’t miss out!
Styling jeans and a graphic tee…
(Or you can watch with music on Instagram HERE)x
(Yes, the loafers are splurgy; here’s a similar look that’s more budget-friendly.)
Here are a few more options for fringe jackets…
I had fun putting this video together, and will be doing more of them soon!
Lipstick, for the win
A few people have asked me what lipstick I’m wearing in the video above. It’s “Passego Puro” from Brian + MW. It’s one of my favorite colors to wear now, as it feels so fresh and Spring-y. I’ll be doing another LIVE Zoom tomorrow with Brian, this time on LIPS! (and cheeks). As I’m a lipstick junkie 😂 this is the one I’ve been looking forward to! Brian will be showing us how to prep, define and enhance our lips. (We won’t be wearing masks forever…)
These Zooms have been so fun and informative, and I hope you can join us tomorrow. We’ll be starting at 3pm ET/12pm PT. You can pre-register HERE, and submit any questions you have for Brian. Looking forward to seeing you there!
