  1. Have a nice trip home! I love you Paris entries. You should travel more 😉

  2. I loved your Paris posts. I’m leaving for Paris in a week and you’ve totally gotten me in the mood 🙂

  3. Sorry to hear your trip is winding down, Amy. I loved every Paris post you’ve done. Thanks so much for thinking of us!

  4. On the picture of the cafe near the Seine, your ‘Cafe Makeup’ logo was so perfectly placed, I did a double-take, momentarily thinking that you had found a cafe (which sold makeup?) with the same name as your blog!
