Time flies when you’re having fun! With longer days and warmer weather in London, I spent lots of time outside. I also traveled more than usual with a weekend jaunt to Bruges in Belgium, followed by a week in Boston, Connecticut and NYC, all before coming back to London for the Bank Holiday weekend.

Travel: An Epic Girls Weekend In Paris

Ah, Paris. Always a good idea, especially when it’s the setting for an epic girls weekend. Between the warm weather, incredible food, sightseeing and a few surprise encounters, the magic of Paris made this trip memorable. Here are my tips and recommendations on how to spend a girls weekend in Paris.

Where To Stay

I absolutely adore Hotel Le Bellechasse in St. Germain. Decorated by Christian Lacroix, the hotel is in a fantastic location blocks from Musée d’Orsay. The hotel only has 33 guest rooms, free wi-fi and the service is great.
