Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

IN THE PAST WEEK, we ate a little too much, drank a little too much, and watched a lot of holiday films. I did something that was very strange to my being, a thing very foreign to me, a thing normal people refer to as relaxing. For the first time in a very long time, I did not work for five days straight. It was wonderful, actually.

Holiday Decorating Trend: Sculptural Garlands

WHILE SEARCHING for a festive wreath for our front door, ended up coming across many wonderful florists on Instagram who we’ve begun following.

An Ode to Cinema: Our Paris Editor’s Favourite Films

Cinema has always been my escape. Since I was little, I always found ways to watch movies, even though we didn’t have a TV, or later on, when we were not really allowed to watch it. Every Thursday, I went to the Alliance Française to « Soirée Cinema » in my hometown—what a feast for the eyes and the soul.
