So, it’s now less than four weeks until Scotty and I head back to France. We’re headed back to the French Riviera and it’s safe to say that I’m super excited.
I’ve been in full scale planning mode. Thoughts of what to pack have obviously been on my mind. I’m thinking there will be lots of white in my case. While there’s always a smidge of danger with white, especially if you’re as messy as me, it does look fresh. And white pants were everywhere last time we visited Nice. Because I still choose a colour palette to anchor my packing choices around (as I spoke about in this post), at this stage I’m guessing that I’ll be teaming the white with navy and tan.
I’m now a serial restaurant stalker (there’s a good chance I’ll be making a reservation here just for the view). And I’m planning our day trip to Èze entirely around lunch. I’ve also been printing vaccination certificates, trialling face masks in order to find the most comfortable variety and I’ve dusted off my camera to get some early practice. And we’ve got the house-sitter (or should that say Chandon Cat-sitter) locked in.
But I’d Love To Know What You’d Like Me To Share
While I’m starting to feel ready to go, one area I need to get clearer on is what you want me to share about this trip. Do you want to see what I’m packing? Or how I pack? Are you keen to see what makeup and skincare will be in my case? Do you want me to share photos of the French Riviera, or would you prefer to see video? Would you like more outfit shots like I shared on our last trip? Or would you prefer shots from our travels. Are you looking for fresh travel tips? Or maybe you’d like to see or read something entirely different – something I’ve never thought to do before.
If you’ve been in the Distant Francophile community for any length of time, you’ll know that I’d much rather share information on things you want to know, rather than me just guessing and sharing any random thing.
So please, hit reply to this email and let me know what you’d like to see both here on the blog and on our Instagram page. Or share your thoughts in the comments below. Don’t worry about full sentences – dot points are fine. We’re even contemplating YouTube videos – so let us know if that’s something you’d be keen to see.
Thank you in advance for helping me with my planning. I can’t wait to start designing some fun bits and pieces to share with you.
And until next time – au revoir.
P.S. If you’re not looking to travel to France any time soon, but would like to bring a little piece of France into everyday life, don’t forget about the Distant Francophile Fine Art Print Shop. You’ll find a series of gorgeous images for sale, including Saint-Tropez Style, which is the photograph I’ve shared in this blog post. And a reminder for my US friends…thanks to the current exchange rates, print prices start around $170 USD. And we offer free shipping worldwide xx
