As I settle back in from my recent trip to France, I am already dreaming about my next destination (the travel bug bit me hard long ago!). As part of my newfound commitment to consistently updating this blog, I decided that it would be fun to dream about far-flung, exotic destinations together.
Each week I will share a favorite destination from my Wanderlust Pinterest board and a recipe or two (or three) from that destination from my Recipes Pinterest board (because if we can't hop on a plane and jet off to somewhere wonderfully exotic, sampling new cuisine is a nice compromise, no?!).
Today I am dreaming of Santorini, Greece. Would you like to come along with me?

After spending the last few days in New Orleans I came home with plenty of inspiration. Yesterday as we were walking home from brunch I realized that it would be great fun to plan future Ella Lou collections after cities I have visited and found particularly inspiring. New Orleans home are some of the most beautiful and vibrant homes I have ever come across in the United States. I'm mulling over how to translate the inspiration they provided me into an Ella Lou collection.
Bonjour! I was recently asked by a journalist to provide a few shots of my daughter and I playing with Ella Lou products for an upcoming article (more about that later) and realized I didn't have any. I have hundreds of her playing with my Wanderlust Playmats, wrapped in a pestemal, or hugging pillows. However, because I am typically behind the camera, we didn't have any of us together. We decided to make an afternoon of it and made an appointment at Blink for a quick photo shoot.
On my most recent trip to Paris, I asked my close friend Vanessa, a particularly savvy Parisian, for a list of her favorite Parisian kids stores. Having recently developed our line of Wanderlust Playmats, I am increasingly interested in well-designed children's products and spaces. The Parisian children's stores did not disappoint. Here I share a few of my favorites.
