bad day remedies

Who said "a bad day in Paris is better than a good day anywhere else”? After a bleak morning for reasons beyond the ever-gray sky, having half your lunch (an overpriced butternut squash soup from the café across the street) spill in its entirety just five minutes before it had the chance to redeem your afternoon... still sucks. Feelings are only so affected by the places they're experienced in.
But, this isn’t meant to be a pity party. I recognize there are a few distinctly Parisian ways to add optimistic sparkle to each day.
Take the “Champagne Social”. Lisa organized the event to celebrate Cara’s first visit and the City of Lights itself. Habitat Parisien provided the gorgeous loft space. Lauren brought her creative talent to the fabulous decor. It was an evening of inspiring conversation, amazing home videos, and one incredible sing-along dance party. Oh, there was champagne, too. Obviously...

Remember: research has proven that the bubbles in champagne really do go "straight to your head." Thanks to Tricia for the photographic evidence of Daisy and I's tipsy fun in le gran bain. And merci, Lisa for the great night ! Also, I brought lunch today.

  2. Oh, that last bathtub photo is the best! To save, and look at when feeling down.

  3. Love these photos and loved the first Champagne Social. Indeed, I'll revert to this post whenever I'm having a drab day to see our adorable Bathtub Bubbles!

  4. Those bathtub photos are amazing! You both look really pretty. : )

    I love that you all had such a good time. It really made the months of prep and organization so worth it! I may need to do more of these... ; )

    Thank you for this post!

    Side note: I'm so glad no one fell down the stairs. I was a little worried about that (I'm an old Italian mother, I can't help it)...

    1. Thank you, darling! You did an AMAZING job executing it. I'm glad no one fell down the stairs, too! Perhaps the fun on the ground floor kept us safe? :)

  6. If I had a dollar for every time I ended up in a bathtub with another woman after drinking champagne.... ;o) Kidding!! I love the pictures, especially the last one!

    I'd never really thought about it that way, but you're right - bad days are still bad days no matter where you are. Except maybe the beach. ;o) Nah, I bet people spill their soup on the beach, too...

    1. Haha, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience ;) I could go for some gazpacho on the beach right now though!
