 This past Memorial Day I spent my weekend thinking of my memories from last year in Paris, and I felt compelled to re-share one of my favorite travel posts I've written, The Parisian Dream.

Original Post Date: June 6, 2017

Paris is one of those places that little girls dream of. I still recall the excitement of my mom when we booked our first ever trip to Paris in May 2000, for Memorial Day. At the time, my mom was already sick with cancer and it was one of her last wishes to go to Paris. The saying that "You always remember your first trip to Paris," is true. I remember it vividly, 17 years later. I still remember what I wore, places we ate, things we did, and the ench...

In 2015, I had the honor of attending the Beyond the Little Black Dress fashion show hosted by the Alliance Française . I was a volunteer for the event and took over their Instagram handle to cover the show. It was that year that I was introduced to AF, and the magic of French culture in DC. You see, I always loved Paris, but the charm of an organization such as the Alliance Française was new to me. I was mesmerized by the Beyond the Little Black Dress show, and it is one of the first events that I attended due to my blog. I have always appreciated the opportunity to volunteer at that show, and that the AF trusted in me for their prestigious event. 

This year, I ha...

I know, I know, by now you all are likely tired of me raving about Paris. But, I'm sorry (sorry not sorry!) to tell you, a lot more Paris is coming! Not only with this post, but I'm cohosting a Paris themed event with ELOQUII on July 13 from 6-9pm at the pop-up in Pentagon City Mall (SAVE THE DATE!). I rave about Paris, because, it is a place that truly inspires wanderlust in me. While I could argue Positano, Italy, also makes me feel this way, they are two different cities and both hold special places in my heart for two different reasons, but I d...

You all know I love Paris. If you don't...then you must not be following me on social media or read my last blog post, because the love is seriously strong. Another thing you all know I love, is the ELOQUII brand. So, it made sense to blend these two loves and plan a photoshoot while in Paris, wearing ELOQUII. Luckily for me, ELOQUII introduced me to Mindy City Beauty, who introduced me to Katie Donnelly, an American-turned-Parisian photographer based in Paris. Thank you Mindy, for this fabulous introduction.

From the moment I saw Katie's photography on her social media channels and website, I knew this was going to be a perfect match. Her style is classic, clean, and a...
