MY TRIP TO THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

i got back from my trip last week and have been gathering the photos to share because i TRULY loved the south of france and highly recommend you go there! i went with 6 other friends and 4 little kiddos. we used raileurope to take the train from paris to avignon (takes about 3 hours) and then rented a car and drove an hour to gordes. i had never been to the south of france, so it was a wonderful new experience.

HAPPY DAY IN PARIS

while in paris out with some friends, i met katie, a photographer from australia who lives in paris. we really hit it off and she was kind enough to take me around to see a few spots i’d never seen a couple of days later…

we met and had mint tea and pastries at the café de la mosquée de paris, which is a beautiful north african cafe. mosaic tiles, birds fluttering around in the trees…a cute little spot for sure.

we walked through the jardin des plantes to see the roses and then ended up on the most colorful street i’ve seen in paris. each house with it’s own unique pastel color & doorstep decor. it was a happy day.

wishing you a happy weekend! i have my social media workshop tomorrow and then a backyard BBQ with friends. i’ve been on a sort-of-detox since my trip (no alcohol, gluten, sugar or dairy) which is pretty difficult but i’m feeling a lot better. jetlag, dehydration, and two weeks of indulgence can really catch up with ya. maybe i’ll splurge and have a margarita at the BBQ, we’ll see. have a good one! -bri

PS! be one of the 250 people to get this free summer lovin tote that i designed for lucky magazine & maybelline! details here.

HELLO LOS ANGELES

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

i’m finally home in my own bed. that’s always a good feeling after a trip. this trip was different than most, there was zero work involved. i gave myself two weeks to take in new sights, relax with good friends, and recharge my creativity. i’m excited to do a few posts on what i saw in france…i was blown away by the south. the relaxing energy, the never ending green, the vines crawling up all of the villas, the wine…ohhhh the wine. it was magic.

i’ll be catching up with work for a few days i’m sure (after two weeks of very slow, almost dial-up internet speeds) but i wanted to stop in and say hello! i missed this blog. i hope you’re having a great week so far! -bri

BRING ON THE FLEURS & CROISSANTS

good morning! i woke up verrrrrrry early to catch a plane to france today. i’m slightly nervous considering i’ve never flown abroad by myself, but i’m sure it will be just fine. i’ll still be checking in daily to the blog and obviously posting tons over on instagram.

for the first time ever, i haven’t planned one single thing to do while i’m there. so unlike me. so seriously, if you have something amazing to tell me to do in paris or provence, PLEASE DO! i always love reading your suggestions.

i will be with some people in paris for a week, and then taking the train (so excited about that!) down to provence for the second week. i’ve got a couple of possible new projects in the works while i’m there, which hopefully i can talk about soon!

ok, i keep seeing all these photos of lavender fields in provence. will i seriously be able to see those in person? because that’s like a dream. i can’t wait to just wander around and explore a new place…have a great week everyone, talk soon! - bri

TULUM TRAVEL GUIDE

tulum01

tulum? WOW. seriously, wow. i have been to mexico quite a few times but this time was really special. a few months ago, 3 friends and I decided to take a girls only trip. we all find so much inspiration from travel, and wanted to just take a few days to recharge and feed off of each other’s creative energy. it was one of those hilarious & memorable short trips that i probably will never forget. here’s what we were able to do in the three days we were there, in case you are planning a trip… (ps, the ruins are supposed to be amazing, we just didn’t make it due to time)

LOVE YOU JEN, JESSE & PAIGE!
