Destination Pretty: In a Beauty-full Parisian State of Mind

I made it from Paris to Provence in one beauty-full piece. I love traveling by train and when you are passing time in the French countryside with a magazine, Kindle, portable wine, and conversation the time passes quickly. I was asked before I left DC “Does Paris get old?Never. It’s still magical to me. I love the slower pace, the numerous hours sitting, talking, exploring, and learning. Let’s not forgot all the eating. I found beauty products that we will be obsessing over soon in the U.S. Here are a few photos of Paris that make me smile.

    Very exquisite and seductive at the same time. The French really know how to beautify everything.
