Destination Pretty: I’m Leading My First Beauty Tour of Paris

Arc de Triomphe

I fell in love with Paris the first time I visited. It was the long lunches, the extra long dinners with stimulating conversations, and the food. It’s the je ne sais quoi. It is hard to explain. You have to go to fully understand what no book, blog, or photo can truly show. I always [...]

Reading Pretty: Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (And Dark Chocolate)

Paris My Sweet Book

I always have a Paris book in my reading rotation. But before I headed to Paris in May, I wanted to read Amy Thomas’ ode to my beloved city. Paris, My Sweet: A Year in the City of Light (And Dark Chocolate) is a sweet junkie’s tome on life and sweets in one of the [...]

Destination Pretty: Parisian Beauty Find – Bioderma Cleansing Water

Bioderma

It is no secret I love me some Paris. But, one of the things I love is finding all these amazing beauty products that I can’t find in the U.S. I read tons of magazines (domestic & international) and the one thing I always ask is “what is the beauty editor buying.” I have been [...]

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

Paris Collage

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. [...]

Travel Essentials

The retreat I’m leaving for today has been awhile in the making. What started as a discussion on art journaling and yoga with Kimberly is now a 10 day retreat in the City of Lights and Provence. I have been itching to go back “home” as I like to call France. Last week I tore [...]

Six Years Later … Bonne Anniversaire to All About the Pretty

Paris Je t'aime

I could never have imagined six years later that All About the Pretty would still be here. At the time I started blogging it was still looked down upon. It is hard to imagine that today, but blogging wasn’t what it is now. I remember my first fashion week and it was like blogger what? [...]

Happy Weekend and Dreaming of Macarons

Laduree

As always I’m dreaming of Paris.  This weekend is no exception.  I have been addicted to French macarons, not to be confused with American macaroons.  These are light, flavorful, and divine sweet treats.  Last year my friend Laetitia invited a few foodies over to learn how to make these delights from the fab Cecilia.  I [...]
