Travel Vlog | Paris with HomeAway

I’m so excited to be sharing our very first travel vlog today! As I talked about here, during our stay in Paris, we had the amazing opportunity to stay in one of HomeAway’s ultra-chic Parisian apartments. It’s a place I literally am still dreaming about every day! We really couldn’t have had a better stay, and I can’t picture a more perfect way to embrace Paris as a “local” than by having our own home for the nine days we were there. I can’t wait to share with you a glimpse, film style, into our trip and a first hand look…

Paris Guide: Rainy Day

The age old saying is definitely true: the city of light is just as beautiful when it rains as when it’s perfectly sunny. It may even be slightly more magical (if that’s even possible). Over the span of our ten days there, we had a couple that were gloomy and rainy – but that wasn’t going to stop us from enjoying Paris! The day we spent wandering around in the rain, hopping in and out of museums and shops was one of the absolute best days. Museums & Cathedrals  Musee D’Orsay // Located on the banks of the Seine, this…

Parisian Glow

Can you believe it’s already the Thursday before Christmas? Just three more sleeps and it will be the big day! I’ve been busy preparing for the festivities the last few days – and prepping for some other exciting happenings in my life. I’ll be moving out of my apartment in just a couple of weeks, right after the holidays, and I’m looking forward to creating a fresh start and a home somewhere new. Stay tuned for details to come over the next couple of weeks! Just incase you still have some last minute shopping to finish up – I wanted…

Paris Guide: Where To Eat

During the weeks leading up to our trip Paris last month, Ryan and I spent countless hours making spreadsheet upon spreadsheet of things we wanted to see, eat, and do. However, once we arrived at our HomeAway in Le Marais, we realized there was so much to do within walking distance (and just so much to do in general) that we decided to forego our premeditated list, and see what gems we could stumble upon during our stay. Though I’m usually a major planner and like to have everything scheduled, living on a whim when it came to choosing places…

Cold-Shoulder

With a shift in temperatures comes a new approach to dressing. Those summer trends we loved are by now fading with our tans, been pushed to the back of our closet, and we’ve moved on to newer (and warmer) things. One trend we all tried and loved over the summer months was the oh-so-romantic off-shoulder look. Whether in be on a dress or flowy chiffon top paired with our favorite high-rise shorts, it was a winner. But how to pull off the sweet look now that winter is upon us? Let me introduce you to its cold-weather sister: the cold…

Our Parisian Home

I’m so excited to share the second half of our Paris proposal story today (you can find part one here), as well as a look into our home for the nine days we were in Paris! After our whirlwind of a morning, I was ready to head back home, call our families, and cozy up on the couch with Ryan. It had been such a perfect day so far, but after all of the excitement, nothing was more appealing than having a little bit of downtime. We headed back to our HomeAway located the Le Marais to find yet another surprise. We entered into…
