Favorite Parisian Drugstore Buys

Trips to Paris do not have to cost a lot of money.  Small pharmacy purchases are the secret, (aka les Petits Objets).


Some of my favorite purchases are made at the pharmacy. And that is a budget friendly store found on many Parisian corners.  There is something so fun about searching through a drugstore that is not a cvs and seems somehow so glamorous, how stereotypically French is that?  As French as a French poodle wearing his Goyard collar!


Marvis toothpaste is a must, especially at half the price that it is in the US.


Klorane hair products are some of my absolute favorites.  Blondes love the camomile line, but there are a multitude of options available.  Mango butter shampoo anyone?  Yummaroo!


Klorane is a natural plant based hair care company, and one of those lines that actually delivers immediate improvement to your hair.  ❤ that!


Nuxe body oil is pure magic.  I always stock up on it in Paris as half price is better than full – plus it leaves more euros for other purchases.  Nuxe is the only after shower oil that saves me from New England winter dry skin.


Et voila!

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Seriously, deliriously happy it is Friday!!!!!!

Celine is growing, and I for one am deliriously happy about it! There is an outlet recently opened at the Woodbury Commons just outside of NYC. (Insert extremely high pitched squeal of happiness by reversecommuter here!!!!!). Celine has also just opened the brand spanking new doors of their new flagship store in London on Mount Street (neighbors to Lanvin, Azzaro, Balenciaga and Goyard!).  Phoebe Philo is also going to fill up 15 additional new shops internationally including Tokyo, Soho, and Las Vegas.  Ahem….Boston please?!!!

J Crew might be going public.  Looking for a cash king to come riding into the sunset but not having a happy ending with Japan’s Fast Retailing Co (parent company of J Brand, UNI QLO, Theory and a few others).  Talks ended earlier this week in which J Crew was possibly going to be bought by Fast Retailing for $5 BILLION.  That is a whole heck of a lot of sushi so the Japanese company went Sayonara.  Rumor has it that Mickey is now gearing up for an Initial Public Offering with Goldman Sachs.
