Snow Date

January 16, 2013 • FranceGeneva

last weekend was one of the first in a while i got to spend alone with my guy. i love having friends over in geneva – in fact, i live for those moments shared with them – but nothing beats quality time with my love. we went skiing on saturday (very first time it was just the two us!) and for sunday, we made plans for a different kind of snow date. we went snowshoewalking in la givrine, watched adorable toddlers skiing on baby slopes, fell backwards and forwards into the deep snow, found a few magical places, shot amazing photos and i made my first snow angel. it was all aces. and yup, that’s me instagrammin’ in there. but if you’ve been following, i didn’t have to tell you that.

what kept me warm and cozy in the snow: loungelife hat // spyder coat // peak performance pants // columbia boots (they are ah-mazing) // ray-ban glasses

Merci Paris

June 21, 2012 • FranceParisTravel

i had a blast last weekend in paris. from the moment when my best friend chose me to be maid of honor (one of two, actually) i knew her bachelorette party was going to take place in her favorite city in the world. we put together a little trip to see a different side of paris: staying at the super cool mama shelter, snapping photobooth pictures at bonton, eating at merci (and fruitlessly stopping by rose bakery, merce & the muse and wanderlust, all of which were fully packed and sadly couldn’t seat our group of eight). we also stopped by daniel buren’s monumenta 2012 at grand palais (impressive!) and tim burton’s expo at the cinémathèque (so, so cool). it all made me realise just how much i love paris.
