English Roses & French Rose

Hello friends! I am back from my trip across the pond. Hopefully you followed along on instagram stories. If not, I rounded up some fun photos from the trip. I visited London and Paris this week. Both cities I have explored previously, but it was fun to tackle the city by foot and with great enthusiasm for good food and even better shopping.

I have a series of great posts lined up in the coming weeks. Until then, enjoy these photos, get inspired, and let me share some of our itinerary with you!

Cheers, Au Revoir, and see you tomorrow! xxoo

  1. It is not the “Four Season George Sank”. Perhaps George did sink at some point, but in this case, it’s “George Cinque” which means “George the Fifth”. Written out, it appears like this: Four Seasons George V.
