You know what makes this Friday especially fun? The fact that I… drumroll please… leave for Paris in two days! If you haven’t heard me talk about it yet, I’m packing my bags and heading to France as a guest of Disney Adventures for a Seine River Cruise. My precious friend Caroline is joining me for a whirlwind 10 day trip through France, and we’ve been talking about it non-stop these past few weeks!
I’ve been fortunate enough to have visited Paris a handful of times over the years. It’s without a doubt my favorite city in the world, because the cliches are true. It’s just as magic in-person as every movie and song makes it out to be!
This will be my first time exploring other parts of France, and the Adventures by Disney team has crafted the most incredible itinerary complete with visits to chateaus, hikes to the top of beautiful towns, orchard visits, macaroon demonstrations and more. I cannot wait to see more of this stunning country!
I can’t wait to take you along on all of the fun, but before wheels are up, let’s go over a few favorites from this week. I’ve got some fun ones to share with you! Here’s a peek at a few things I’m packing up:
NEW JUSTIN BIEBER SONG
Have y’all heard it? It’s a new one with Dan & Shay (interesting collaboration but I’m here for it!) called 10,000 hours… and it’s so sweet! Having a bit of a JBiebs moment due to his recent wedding celebration at the Montage Palmetto Bluff.
FAVE SHAVE CREAM
I picked this up on a whim while at Target the other day, and I don’t know what magic is bottled up in this but my legs have never felt smoother! Have any of y’all tried it?
A few of you have asked how I’ve been liking a new book I’ve been reading, American Royals. I’m now 3/4 of the way through it, and am loving it so far! It’s definitely a teen read, but it’s fun to get lost in this alternate reality. Excited that it’s a series, and more books will be coming out!
DREAM DRESS (I’M TAKING WITH ME!)
It’s not often I splurge on a piece that’s not specifically for a special occasion, but when I saw this dress, my heart stopped. The color, the fit… everything, absolute perfection! It arrived a few days ago and fits like a dream. (I ordered a Ted Size 0.) I’m packing it up for Paris because if the city of lights is not an occasion to wear this I don’t know what is!
MY WHITE SNEAKER SITUATION
My new shoe crush? These white sneakers! Not only are they insanely comfortable, but there’s also a 2″ wedge hidden inside! I’ll take a little lift wherever I can get it these days. so these were a no brainer. They’re going to be my go-to in France, and now I’m wanting them in every color!
HOME CHEF HOME RUN
Andrew and I have been using Home Chef for a couple of months now, and seriously can not say enough good things. It’s a total dream that they’ve chosen to partner with me, so you’ll be seeing me create some of their meals these next few months! This shoutout isn’t sponsored, however. I just wanted to let y’all know about a few delicious orders we’ve cooked recently… Ginger Steak and Peppers, Korean BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches, and Chicken Bahn Mi Lettuce Wraps all get five stars from us. If you’ve used Home Chef before, what have been some of your favorite meals?
Now, I need to finish up packing and a few errands! Andrew and I are heading to our neighborhood October Festival this evening and tailgating for the Florida homecoming game tomorrow. It’s busy weekend before an even busier week, and I’m so excited!
Love from the Sunshine State,
