I spent the past 5 days in Amsterdam discovering all things adorable and Dutch. What a wonderful city. There is so much to uncover and adorable treasures to hunt for! Have you been on vacation lately? It’s always a nice change of pace to get out of where you live for a bit, no?

I’m going to tell you about places like here and here or here and here  that I found in Amsterdam within the next week or so, so stay tuned!

Riding a bike in Amsterdam is so much less stressful than riding one in Paris…. the cars respect you!

. . . . .

Today I’ve been listening to this and this.

I’m obsessed with my new teapot from here and oodles of tea I got here.

Have you seen the cute bike accessories from Kitsch Kitchen?

A glimpse at la vie à l’américaine through the lens of Making Magique. I’m feelin’ a pinch of nostalgia!

I’m drooling over Olivia’s most recent cupcake recipe.

Watching the Olympics is always so fun, and staple in my television watching habits every 4 years.

This time last year I was in New York scarfing down cupcakes at Butter Lane.

Still not over how gosh darn cute these are.

Last Sunday Louis and I drove up to Pont Audemer, where I studied abroad when I was 16 for a year. This Normandy town is just so charming and full of adorables: flowers and canals and colombage. It’s always refreshing to go back and remember the strolls down rue de la République or running to the boulangerie in between classes. It seems so long ago.

This previous weekend we headed down to Montargis for the weekend with some friends. Stay tuned for pictures of probably what is the most picturesque weekend in this year so far!

How are your summer weekends? Enjoying some sun rays?

This little place is a piece of heaven for expats like me (I’d say at least).

Owned and run by a woman from Dallas, Blues BBQ is tucked in a little street near Basille and offers classic American BBQ dishes…. done right. The cherry on top… their Mac ‘N Cheese.

From ribs to a pulled pork sandwich, this is where you can find such dishes in Parisland at a very reasonable price… And they’re authentic! How could you pass up a real American-style baked potato in Paris?
