  1. ahhh adore adore this post!!!

    btw sticky toffee pudding is one of my ALL time favorite desserts in the world!!

    and i have that SAME exact navy blue eiffel tower longchamps bag and i got it in paris too teheheh :p

  2. Welcome back! This is making me want to go back to France, it is so lovely! I adore everything you purchased on your trip. The satchel is amazing and so is the scarf. Hope you are not too jet lagged!

  3. I am so so so jealous of your trip and all your purchases! I studied abroad in Paris but was way too poor to buy anything cool at the time. London is my favorite place on earth, but I didn't know about the Cambridge Satchel Company last time I went. It is a definite must on my list for next time!


  4. Chanced upon your blog and enjoy reading it!

  5. i loved all of your IG pics when you posted them - the scarf is a spectacular print - congratulations!!!

  6. Dear Laura - I came through via Lisa's blog where you left a comment.

    These pictures make me miss both those cities tremendously. And well done on the Hermes purchase - my knees go weak every time I am in there, especially in Europe!

  7. I'm lusting over that Cambridge Satchel! So beautiful and love the initialling. Such a great idea. looks like you had an awesome trip- very glad I found this blog!
