Hello all!

Now that my wedding is less than two months away, it's been a little hectic around here - hectic in the best way possible. Everything seems to be really coming together, thanks to my in-laws who have been so helpful and are taking it seriously, unlike my own family. Get this, my grandmother is actually criticizing our invitations, claiming that we clearly don't know how to put together a proper wedding. Ha! Wait until she sees photos of my dress! She'll pretty much be horrified.

Aside from disparaging commentary, I'd say that my final week of vacation has been pretty good. I've slept in, organized the administrative side of getting married in France (to be shared!) and a few of my articles have been published, here are the clippings...

Thanks to introductions made by Out and About in Paris' Mary-Kay, I met with Selysette, contributor of on-line fashion and art website Lively. Over drinks to catch up on Paris Fashion Week, we learned that we're both native New Yorkers, have Latina roots and have a passion for fashion (yeah, like there is only two of us, but still it was pretty cool.) Here are my two cents on one of my favorite events of the year. 


My friends over at Parisian tour company Localers asked me to share some of my favorite spots in my old haunt the Marais. If you're coming to Paris and want to take a tour that goes beyond our beloved Eiffel Tower, they offer tons of unique walking tours around the city with their team of experts. No, this is not a sponsored post, I just think these guys are great. After our bonding experience in the caverns of the Catacombs on a cold winter's day in January, these guys proved to know their stuff.




I'm going to end with thanking you all for your comments and e-mails about the incident that happened in the 20th last week. I will respond to comments in the morning. I'm sorry I have been slow with getting back to all of you who take the time in your otherwise busy lives to leave me notes.  Thank you again and more importantly, I hope it's made you a drop more aware than I'm sure you already are because you just never know. Bon week-end.

  2. I'm glad everything is coming together! I love that you are getting published more and more; this is exciting!

    I'd love those Dr. Scholl's flats! I am frustrated about the lack of affordable and good shoe stores here in Grenoble/France (or are they somewhere?).

    Loving the posh photo of you at the garment rack. :)

    1. Thank you so much Dana! These two features came out nice. The editors behind both sites are super cool!

      Dr. Scholl's flats are the best! Wear comfy shoes to my wedding...it's in a backyard! : )

  3. Thought grandma wanted nothing to do with that wedding?

    When she made that statement, she lost the right to have an opinion:)

    1. Ain't that the truth! She's trying to upset me during "my time" and it's not going to work. If it hasn't by now, she needs to just give up. Ugh...

  4. Congratulations on your articles! You are quickly becoming Paris's answer to Carrie Bradshaw (except less neurotic). And after reading the post about your jazzy grandma and now this, I'm having a hard time handling your awesomeness. I'm on the verge of a Wayne and Garth bow down. Seriously.
    And can we talk about your hair in that one feature... you need to give this curly haired chick some tips because that mane is amazing!

    1. Awww, thanks Sara! That's really so nice of you to say. I'm blushing. : ).

      So I got my hair done that week (the photo was taken a few years ago) at an Arabic salon near Place de Clichy. I paid 16 euros. Cheap blow-outs are the way to go. I always find my cheapy places in town! There's NO WAY I could do that myself!
