Posted by 04.12.17

I’m embarrassed by how frequently I tell people that I spent a year in Paris. Then again, I spent a year in Paris, it transformed my life, and I often find myself near tears, wondering if and when I will live there again. Since I can’t just up and move to Paris right now, I try to recreate pieces of Paris at home, and part of that is in my beauty routine.
