There's only so much you can fit into 8 or so suitcases when you're moving across an ocean. A lot of space in my family's luggage was taken up by clothes for all four seasons, toys that my kids couldn't live without (which turned out to be a lot), and lots of kitchen paraphernalia, because I couldn't live without them. In the end, there was very little space, or rather weight, left for beauty supplies to come back with me. Luckily, I ended up squeezing in some things that I couldn't bear to part with, and lucky for you, I was able to find most of them available in the States!

Have you been feeling an itch to travel lately? While it may be some time before you can fly to Paris and then hop on a train to the south of France, thankfully, there are plenty of great French-themed movies that will take you there for a few hours. Add a charcuterie board, cozy up your home for fall, and voila!

Has 4 or 5 o'clock ever rolled around you find you've found yourself wondering, "What should I make for dinner tonight"? Me too, me too. Meal planning can be a pain, so I thought I would share a few of my go-to dinners with you. I made all of these recipes while living in Paris and would cycle through many of them throughout the long fall and winter season. Each of them is a nice, warming meal, but more importantly, an easy meal.

As the weather starts to cool, I find myself longing to walk through Luxembourg gardens to watch the leaves and the beautiful flower beds change with the season. While scrolling through instagram brings me joy at seeing my friends go on with their lives in Paris, I also experience a little pang of missing. Fall has always been one of my favorite seasons and I want it to be filled with joy, so this year, I'm bringing in some French inspiration. Here I've collected 10 things to help your home feel more French, too.
