good morning! so hopefully you were able to check out our paris post on tuesday with the map of everywhere we went (i got a lot of comments about people using it for their upcoming honeymoons!) and maybe you saw the hilarious #bonertent twitter conversation about a questionable photo from that post? guys, come on. do you really think i would put something like that on the internet? too funny.

ANYWAYS, here’s a short video about the creative council project and a little interview with me (excuse my cold)

so here’s the deal with the videos around here. i think it’s time to start doing more of them. (my youtube channel that i just started is here) i’m considering doing more talking videos too, what do you think? we do so much DIY, food, travel and style content around here that i think video needs to come into the picture more often.

my boyfriend captured this video when we were in paris. the song is so catchy right? i’ve had it in my head for days. it shows our apartment and even a little dance number by yours truly…

i hope you guys check out some of the spots we visited in paris, you won’t regret it! a lot of you asked about the apartment listing: it’s here.

  • 7. alicia  |  April 18th, 2013 at 11:09 am

    So cute! I really want to take your video class and I agree, more video!! But make sure lots of photography keeps sticking around too :)
    I love that you get your best ideas while in an airplane as a way to fight your fear – that’s pretty hilarious. It makes me wonder, how are you with handling stressful situations? Does the creative bust come out when a deadline is approaching way too fast?
    ps: your too cute <3

  • 8. charlotte  |  April 18th, 2013 at 11:15 am

  • 16. Ashleigh | Love Stoned  |  April 18th, 2013 at 12:16 pm

    Do you know Bri, after years of frequenting your blog like a friend seeking advice on beautiful objects, hidden food gems and colourful styling, today was the first time I heard your voice. It made me smile. It was so sweet and adorable. And I think everyone who meets you must secretly wish you were their best friend!
    Thanks for the beautiful and whimsical Paris video and recommendations. Perfect timing as I am heading there on belated honeymoon very soon…

  • 33. Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today  |  April 19th, 2013 at 5:40 am

    Your movie is super extra positive.

  • 34. Giò  |  April 19th, 2013 at 6:21 am

    I’m loving these two videos!!! And I love Paris too. You’re so cute!!! Kisses from Italy

  • 35. Sarah  |  April 19th, 2013 at 6:59 am

    Love the Paris video, and I can definitely understand what you’re saying about the need to bring in video. You definitely get something from that short video that you can’t experience through still photographs. It also helps to have a super talented boyfriend to help out.Your trip looks awesome, and the music is quite catchy. It’s inspired me to listen to my favorite french band, Holden (kind of a similar vibe).

  • 36. Janet  |  April 19th, 2013 at 8:53 am

    So inspired by your Paris video. Love it!

  • 37. Cynthia  |  April 19th, 2013 at 4:06 pm

    Your boyfriend looks like one of the guys from new girl. Haha! just noticed that! xx

  • 38. Erin  |  April 19th, 2013 at 8:01 pm

    I am completely in love/inspired with/by your life! Your trip to Paris looks like it was wonderful!

  • 39. leann  |  April 20th, 2013 at 9:55 am

    looks like so much fun, bri! i must admit that i am overcome with envy that you get to do these things with your life – i hope one day that will be me :) thank you again for the endless inspiration.

  • 40. Anne  |  April 20th, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    Loved the Paris video!! Especially the little dance part at the end :))

    Superb blog you have here but I was curious about if
    you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about
    in this article? I’d really love to be a part of online community where I can get comments from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Bless you!

    I don’t even understand how I stopped up right here, but I believed this put
    up used to be good. I do not recognize who you’re but definitely you’re going to
    a well-known blogger if you aren’t already. Cheers!
