We have almost made it to June (YAY) and I am just shy of less than 100 days until the big day. I am getting SO excited and SO anxious for my wedding day to get here! Can you blame me? I am so thrilled to have collaborated with Aidan Mattox again to bring you some fabulous dresses for, “What To Wear As A Bride To Be!” Be sure to check out my last post featuring Aidan Mattox for the perfect Christmas Cocktail Dress & Black Tie Gown.
Do you notice anything different about my dress? Anything, not so typical-bride? That’s because I don’t think as a bride to be you have to wear white to every single event. I picked this dress specifically because it was a tan/sheer underlay and had my wedding colors in it! It also makes a statement and I am sure to stand out from the expected white dress! As you know, I love to wear things that are on trend because I love fashion! I definitely have a preppy- classic side as well, but this time I am spicing it up for an event!
This floral dress I’m wearing is intended for a bridal shower I have coming up soon. It also would be a beautiful engagement party dress and would look perfect for a cocktail party as lilac is the hot color this season. Anytime purple is in style, I am allll in – do I need more of a reason to rep TCU? This dress is perfect for any dressy or cocktail event. Also, not only will you be able to wear it again (BECAUSE IT ISN’T JUST STARK WHITE) you can wear it to a wedding or another cocktail party. I can’t tell you how many friends will say, ” I don’t know what to do with all of these white dresses!” after their wedding day. You may be able to sneak white into a baby shower or some type of summer party, but it can get tricky. You don’t want to wear white to someone else’s wedding shower. Trust me on this one. 😉
Not only do I have my outfit linked below for you to shop, I also have a collection of gowns that would be perfect to wear as the bride to be by Aidan Mattox! Just simply click the image and you will be directed to the site to shop!
WHITE PICKS FOR THE BRIDE TO BE
FUN COCKTAIL DRESSES TO GO WITH YOUR WEDDING THEME
Hey friends! January felt like the longest month everrr and I am so excited we are moving on to a more springy season! Don’t get me wrong, I love this season of my life, but I am so anxious as I am getting so close to my wedding date!
I am not one for “resolutions” but over the past few years of “adulting” I have tried to be more on top of my game. With that being said, I now hold myself accountable for more things in my life. I have learned that I like to be in control (at least when I can) and take action. So, I bring you 5 things I have been working on lately. These are goals that I don’t only want to set this year, they are things that I would like to keep sticking to as time goes on!
Workout Routine & Healthy Eating: Before you think, “How typical,” don’t stop reading! I feel like EVERYONE struggles with this and this is something I need to make sure I take into consideration. Whether it is squeezing in some BBG or going to Soul Cycle after work, I make sure that at least once a week I have done some form of workout. Yes, just once a week. Twice or three times is amazing, but right now I am just making sure I at least make it to one class. I have been so busy lately (wedding planning and all) it gets hard to add a good workout to my routine. If there are days I know I’m going to be doing a lot of sitting, I take the stairs to my office and park far away so I have a nice long walk back to my car! I also make sure I pack a healthy lunch and snacks every day. Sure, I splurge every now and then, (I can’t say no to queso) but I make sure to make it up with something healthy the next day! Meal prepping really works the best for me because I have a set plan of what I am eating as opposed to being tempted by other meals. I am not much of a chef, so if anyone has any good recipes, send them my way!
Devotional: It is a goal of mine every evening to squeeze in some quiet time. Whether I am listening to my favorite Podcast, studying Breaking Free, or Jesus Calling, I have to do a mini personal worship session. For those of you that also like to read Jesus Calling, I know it is meant to be read in the morning, however, my mornings are just too crazy to sit down and absorb God’s Word. That’s why I like to wait until the evening to really dig deep. One of my friends also leads a bible study with the book, “Breaking Free” by Beth Moore. We watch the videos that come with the book series and discuss our thoughts, prayers, and personal struggles. It is so nice to have built a community and deeper friendships with women that are just as passionate and crave fellowship.
Friendships: My community built on bible study definitely has me thinking about alllll my sweet Houston friends. Knowing that I am moving from Houston to Dallas in the next couple of months has also made me treasure the current friendships that I have. Not only do I hold my besties close to my heart, I have also made new friendships this year from blogging! I am so sad to have made new friends and then all of a sudden having to leave. However, I know our paths will cross again in the future and I’m very thankful for blogging events that will keep me involved! So, friends, don’t be a stranger! 😉
Career Driven: I’m always craving new ways to grow in my career and everyday life. I have been so fortunate to be able to try different job roles and industries after graduating college and my graduate program. Although retail is where I have the most experience, it has been interesting to see how similar other industries are and then how they differ. Although it has been rewarding, I am ready to hone in on one industry once I make my big move.
Sticking To It: Finding time to stick to all of these things is really the hardest part and why I save this point for last. There might be some days that I am better about sticking to my “goals” than others, but it’s all just a work in progress, right? Bringing healthy meals usually results in me wanting to work out more because I don’t feel sluggish. This also gives me positive energy to work harder at my job and my blog after work! So really, eating healthy for me is HUGE! It gives me the energy to accomplish more things! Sticking to a healthy workout and diet usually keeps me focused and motivated and trusting more in the Lord. So, there you go, moral of the story – eat healthy! Haha! Honestly, even though it’s tough, it’s all so worth it. When I am on track and keeping up with all of these things, I know I am a much healthier and happy person.
So, there you have it. My goals for the upcoming months & life in general! Also, since we are moving into a more springy season, no blog post would be complete without sharing an outfit! I found this dress in Belgium on my Christmas Vacation and it is a staple in my closet for spring! This print also comes in an adorable blouse that I have linked below!
I’m so excited to share with y’all Part II of my Euro Trip. Going from where we left off on my Christmas trip to Paris, we drove from Reims to Gent, Belgium. The surprises just kept getting better and better! Our drive to Gent was about an hour and a half. It was so interesting driving over the border from France to Belgium. We drove past so many adorable French towns and I was dying to stop at all of them! We passed castles and tons of cathedrals along the way. We even passed Dunkirk which was really cool. Hopefully, on another visit, we will stop at some of the towns and explore! The culture slowly changed to a more Flemish influence and was greeted by mid-century crests as we made our way to Gent.
Gent was the most adorable mid-evil town I have ever seen! We thought the Christmas Markets in Paris were awesome, but I was amazed by what Gent had to offer! The first evening we arrived in Gent, we immediately went to the Christmas Market in the middle of the town square. The market seemed like it was almost a mile long and kept going on forever! I have never seen so much cheese, sausage, vin chaude ( hot wine), chocolate, waffles (duh), and all other kinds of goodies! I knocked out a lot of shopping not just for my family but for myself as well, hehe. We spent our first evening going to the Christmas Market as well as going back several times during our stay. Since the Christmas Market was so big, there always seemed to be something new to explore each time we would visit. The vendors also informed us that the Christmas Markets stay open until January 7th each year. So, if you are planning on taking a trip to Gent, you have plenty of time after Christmas to see the Christmas Markets!
One day when we were exploring the Christmas Market, we also found this adorable ice rink and beer garden. It was SO cold and was fun to sneak off inside and take a break from walking. Gent is also known for their leather goods, chocolates, linens, and wooden figurines. I found more linens in some little shops around Gent, but I found some adorable leather gloves at the Christmas Market. My favorite store for linens was Kloskanthuis Home Linen. Here we found an amazing quality of linens for a great price! Chris and I definitely went crazy in this store and definitely recommend stopping here on your next visit!
Chris and I both agreed we thought Gent was the best, BUT Brugge had a couple of things Gent did not. They had the most adorable handmade wooden ornaments.I found this adorable wooden Christmas tree on the Christmas Market that will be so cute in our future home! Kathe Wohlfahrt had an awesome selection of Christmas ornaments and cuckoo clocks. It is a chain and is in all different cities all throughout Europe, however, they have an adorable selection of authentic ornaments. I was so excited to find wooden ornaments similar to the ones my Uncle gave me when I was a little girl. He was an avid traveler and would have been so proud of our vacation.
Besides the wooden Christmas ornament finds, our other favorite part was this amazing cheese vendor. She had all kinds of aged cheddar and cheeses that we were able to sample. I wish we had gotten her name but I wasn’t paying attention while we were strolling around. We also had probably our 100th glass of vin chaud. Vin Chaud is hot wine, but to me, it tasted a lot like apple cider. I didn’t love it at first, but since it was so cold outside I would crave it while we were exploring! I have actually seen vin chaud at Central Market if you are wanting to find it somewhere local. I have never tried their brand, but it should tide you over until you can get to Europe!
We had so many great meals in Belgium, but our favorite meal was at Pakhuis. The ambiance of the whole restaurant and the food was to die for! It was formerly an old warehouse that has been turned into a restaurant. Our dinner started off by trying the goat cheese and carrot salad. This might sound a bit odd, but it was highly recommended by our waiter and was so delicious! The combination was so good and it was nice to have some greens after eating waffles and crepes all day! For our main course, I had the baked chicken and kale croquettes. Chris had “The Catch of the Day,” with brussel sprouts and mashed potatoes. I honestly can’t remember the type of fish, but I was able to sneak a bite – it was delicious! We also split a bottle of Prinicpale which was an awesome beer local to Gent! You HAVE to make a reservation here if you ever visit Gent.
We also loved Restaurant Du Progres. This was where we had dinner our first night and the service and food were excellent! We both had a type of white fish and a HUGE bowl of french fries. It was sooo good especially after walking around The Christmas Market all afternoon.
A restaurant that we wanted to go to, but was closed, was Soup’R. Gent is known for their soups and soup sounded so delicious especially out and about on a cold day. Instead, we went to a restaurant near downtown called, Exki Gent. Chris and I split a quiche, celery soup, and this awesome chicken and curry salad. It was a great place to stop while we were shopping on the go and didn’t want a long, sit-down type of lunch. The food was really fresh and was so refreshing to have a salad after being filled with nutella crepes and fries for days!
One night we enjoyed drinks at a local pub called Water House on Bierkant. We really felt like one of the locals having drinks here! Chris ordered a type of sour beer and he “tried” to convince me it was good. I honestly can’t remember what I ordered but they had a huge beer menu and is a great place to go to grab drinks and relax after dinner!
There were so many places especially with the Christmas Market around to grab some chocolates! Chris and I searched long and hard for the best chocolate store and that came down to Chocolaterie Luc Van Hoorebeke. Not only did this chocolate store have the BEST hot chocolate we had ever had, you could watch them make the chocolate from scratch! We did the majority of our shopping here and tried a couple samples as well!
One morning we grabbed a quick breakfast from Cru. It as an adorable market right by where we were staying. The produce and meat were so fresh and opted for pomegranates, prosciutto, a sweet quiche, and some different types of bread. We were sad we only had a chance to stop here once, but would definitely recommend doing your grocery shopping here!
While we were exploring we stumbled upon Friterie 1900. Do not pay attention to the online reviews because these were the best french fries we had the whole trip! We split a giant container of fries along with a bratwurst dog from the Christmas Market. We had way too much food, but it was so delicious! There seemed to be a wait all day, but the line moved pretty fast.
We stopped for coffee at Hotel Central Brugge. Not gonna lie… we honestly stopped here because I had to use the restroom. If you have been to Europe before, you know finding a public restroom can be tough, so we made it a point to grab a coffee a couple of different places to make it easier. The espresso and cookies we had were delicious! Their menu also looked awesome. We wish we could have stayed for lunch but we had a lot of shopping to do!
Chez Albert probably had the best waffle I had ever had! It’s located not too far from the town square and can rack up a line pretty quickly! The line moved pretty fast for us and was SO worth the wait! We enjoyed our waffles while exploring the shops in Brugge!
EXPLORE / SHOPPING
We, unfortunately, didn’t get quite as much boutique shopping time in Belgium because we were so enamored with the Christmas Markets! Also since we arrived after Christmas, we noticed a lot of the shops were closed into the New Year. That was a little disappointing, however, we were able to find some awesome shops! Not too far from the town square was a store called & Other Stories. This has to be one of the coolest stores I have ever been in! Imagine an Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie mixed together. I went a little crazy in this store, but definitely found some things I love. the clothes are excellent quality – like Anthropologie. Their clothing fits true to size and linked a couple of items I bought and currently obsessed with below!
We also found Gent’s version of William Sonoma – Dille & Kamille. From the adorable black and white awning to all the gadgets inside, this store couldn’t have been any cuter. It was right by where we were staying and have them all throughout Europe. It’s definitely a great spot if you are looking for some fun kitchen gadgets! By the time we found this little gem, I was worried I was over my suitcase limit and did not make any purchases (crazy, I know). I will just have to admire their stores online until my next visit!
We had the opportunity to tour Gravensteen or “Castle of The Counts” on our last day in Gent. I had only been to the Heidelberg Castle in Germany about two years ago. It was the first thing I did on my trip and it was AMAZING, however, I was so jet-lagged that I don’t remember as much as I would have liked. So, finally having enough sleep this time around (hah), I was so excited to tour another castle in no type of rush! The castle had a partial moat still built around it which was REALLY cool to see. The castle had been completely renovated in the museum displaying weapons from the crusades and torture chamber devices!
The tour started from the first floor of the castle all the way to the very top. It was crazy to see history come alive with guillotines, body stretchers, and other weapons used to take off limbs of the prisoners. Chris and I couldn’t believe they actually did those kinds of things like that back then! It honestly freaked me out a little especially to see the old rusted guillotine! That was something I stayed FAR away from. After seeing all of these contraptions, I was definitely ready to tour the top of the castle. I needed some fresh air after seeing all of the gory images, haha! Sure enough, the top of the castle did not disappoint. You could see the whole city of Gent with the perfect bird’s eye view! It was fun to look through the openings in the walls designed for weapons to go through to protect them from their opponents. We had such a fun day getting a little history lesson and seeing something we definitely don’t have in Texas!
Another historical site I would like to mention is St. Bravo’s Cathedral. We only peaked around here for about 30 minutes but was so interesting to see how similar it was to Reims Cathedral and Notre Dame as mentioned in Part I of my Paris post. The architecture and design definitely had that Baroque feel dating back to the 14th century. The details in the architecture all throughout the cathedral were incredible! This was maybe 5 minutes away from Granvensteen and the town square. We were only inside about 45 minutes, but this could easily be a little adventure if you wanted to stay longer and explore!
We honestly didn’t do too much shopping outside of the Christmas Market in Brugge. We were also here for just half a day so we didn’t have as much opportunity to explore. However, we had such a fun time walking around Brugge’s Markt and wandering into the Provincial Court. The Markt is Brugge’s town square. It had a similar medieval feel to Gent, but the Provincial Court was unlike anything I had ever seen. We explored a little bit inside but wished we would have had time to do an actual tour. There are also so many adorable shops around Brugge’s Markt. Just past the Provincial Court, you will find an indoor shopping center with dozens of chocolate shops. We kept running in and out of the chocolate shops trying samples and seeing if there were any other sweets we could add to our carry-ons!
Both parts of our Christmas trip were a total dream! These are memories that I will always hold close to my heart. Chris and I were so fortunate that our family friends let us “crash” their Christmas getaway. It really was the perfect way to spend Christmas and I hope someday you have the opportunity to do so as well!
Valentine’s Day is just a few weeks away and all I can think about is, “What the heck am I going to wear?” You may be thinking the same thing just like I am! Chris and I have a little tradition of going to Uchi every Valentine’s Day. This year we tried to think of a few different options, but kept going back to Uchi at the end of each conversation! It has been a fun tradition we have always had ever since we started dating! So, even the though Valentine’s Day can be cheesy and overrated, celebrating it between the two of us at the same restaurant makes it more special. We always like to try a bunch of different dishes but always end up getting their Fried Milk for dessert!
Knowing my plans for Valentine’s Day especially helps me prepare my outfit! However, I still am not sure if I want to wear a dress or going a bit more casual -“To be extra or not to be extra??” Ugh! Writing this post may help me out more than you all in for the end! Honestly, it really doesn’t matter what other people think BECAUSE you should be excited to be out on a fun date! With that being said, in case you are looking for some outfit ideas this Valentine’s Day, I have selected a couple of fun date night options for you to shop! From a classic black dress, party pants, and a day to night look, I’ve got you covered!
There are times when I really like to be festive. For me, that really falls on Christmas. If you have read my post 10 Fun Facts About Me, we for sure know that doesn’t fall on Halloween, haha! I also don’t really like to be too over the top on Valentine’s Day, either. Unless you are going to a Galentine’s Day party, then leave the heart-shaped sweatshirt at home! Although, I have a super cute one added to my Valentine’s Day Shop page. Instead, I like to emphasize my excitement for Valentine’s Day in a different way. I am in LOVE with this black dress I found from Zara on my trip to Paris. If you haven’t read my post, check it out here. I also have rounded up several identical dresses below. I love it paired with a fun clutch and big earrings – just to be a little festive. The earrings have a lot of blush pink in them and they make me feel super girly and fun! A black dress and a fun clutch is a classic and chic look. You also probably have this look or a similar look in your very own closet! This should help you especially if you are crunched for time and aren’t sure where you are going for Valentine’s Day just yet.
If you have been following me for a while, then you know how much I love my “Party Pants!” Not only are they comfortable, they are very flattering which will make you feel good especially on a date! Pair these with a fun blouse or blazer and you are ready to hit the town with “that special someone” or your girlfriends!
My last look to share with Y’all is one of my favorites! I saw this in Loft, and knew I immediately had to have it. The skirt and blouse are perfect for work and transition easily into a fun dinner or date night outfit. You can wear the top and skirt to work and then throw on a cute leather jacket after that clock hits 5:00! By now, you know how I LOVE versatile clothing and this could also double as a fun outfit for church or brunch! I love that the boucle has a hint of pink in it — sooo perfect for Valentine’s Day! Pair this with a pink clutch and you are good to go!
I’m so excited to share with y’all my first part of my Euro Trip to Paris! This was my first time to visit “The City of Love” and it definitely did not disappoint!
I don’t even know where to begin! Everything to me was new and exciting and feel like 4 1/2 days wasn’t enough! Now that the jet lag has finally worn off, I can dive into the big details. Just like my trip to Nantucket, Where I made more of a list of spots to stay, dine, and explore, I’m setting this post up in a similar way so you can skim right through! Lucky for me, I was traveling with family friends that have been to Paris many times, and we were able to travel our short time there the “smart” way.
I would like to first start off by saying you have to go to Paris at least ONCE during Christmas time in your life. Of course, that is so much easier said than done. However, if you have the chance, I can guarantee you will have the time of your life! I have listed places that I would like to recommend to you, and also mention places that I plan on going back to on my next visit (hopefully sooner than later)!
PARIS: MUSEUMS / MAJOR ATTRACTIONS
There are so many museums throughout Paris and hundreds around Europe. We toured many between France and Belgium and there are a tons of historical sites we weren’t able to uncover. If you are going to Paris, I would highly suggest getting a Museum Pass. Not only is it worth the money if you know you will visit two or more museums, you will bypass the ticket lines and don’t have to stop and get a ticket in every museum.
The first museum we went to was Musee de Cluny in the Gallo-Roman Baths. This museum holds the famous “The Lady and The Unicorn Tapestries” that are used to tell a story. The museum itself was just incredible to tour as well as the artwork and tapestries inside! The second day of our trip, we went to Musee du Louvre. Not only was I so excited to take pictures by the entrance, I was so excited to finally see The Mona Lisa and The Winged Victory of Samothrace. If you go to The Louvre I would try to go as soon as it opens in the morning. Our Museum Pass was the way to go for this one! I also highly suggest researching The Louvre before you go. The museum is HUGE and hard to complete in just one visit. I’m looking forward to our next trip to go back to parts we weren’t able to explore!
Musee d’ Orsay was a little bit easier to navigate than The Louvre, and is one I also highly recommend – especially your first time to Paris! If you studied Art History in college like me, or just love paintings/ art in general, this one holds beautiful collections of Monet, Van Gogh, Degas, and so many other famous artists!
We also loved Sainte-Chapelle! It is a gorgeous gothic chapel that is within Palais de la Cite. The church dates back to the 1200’s and has one of the most historic collections of stain glass in the world! This was a pretty quick museum visit and close to Musee d’ Orsay. We went to Musee d’ Orsay first and walked about 20 minutes to Sainte-Chapelle. There is also a creperie right down the street which was PERFECT for us to grab a quick lunch and check out Sainte-Chapelle before getting some shopping in!
Another one of my favorite things we did was go to Notre-Dame on Christmas Day. Again, if you ever go to Paris during Christmas time, then this is a MUST! The service was spoken in French, but was so beautiful and was such a special experience. Definitely something I recommend and so nice to stay after the service and explore.
The Eiffel Tower is, of course, a Paris MUST. We went multiple times – we were staying with friend’s very close by so it made the treck out there very easy! It is so gorgeous at all times of the day. It’s so awesome because it lights up for about 5 minutes each hour and is especially gorgeous at night! This was one of my favorite things to do/ see on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. There was the most adorable Christmas market near the Eiffel Tower and it was so much fun to go to on Christmas! There was so much food, that we ended up having dinner there. Christmas doesn’t seem to stop at any time there so you could definitely go a couple of days after your trip well into the new year!
This one is a little tricky to cover as I feel like there is shopping EVERYWHERE. However, I first want to tell you about my favorite places. Of course, my favorite was none other than Galeries Lafayette. This is where I found my adorable mink headband! I didn’t find too much else because I honestly was so overwhelmed and was just having so much fun walking around and enjoying the displays! The Christmas Tree, (shown below), was probably one of the coolest things I have ever seen. Every hour music would start and the Christmas tree would spin around and have ornaments coming down from the ceiling. It might sound cheesy, but it was SO incredible. I never wanted to leave until Chris and our friends made me, haha. The window displays were also very similar and had the most elaborate designs and Christmas decor I had ever seen!
I also loved wandering around and looking at all of the high-end boutiques in Champs-Elysees. There we saw the most incredible Louis Vuitton and Dior displays. I was really bummed the Hermes store was closed – I was on a hunt for a new twilly (see my post on my twilly here) but went into Louis Vuitton. There newest one is several stories high and is incredible. On the top floor, they had all of their beautiful trunks and luggage displayed and even saw someone getting a trunk hand painted! It was so much fun to watch!
A lot of other shopping I did in Paris was just going in and out of Zara, H&M, and Mango. However, one store I did find that I had never been to before was Uniqlo. I fell in love with this store. Not only do they have great prices, they have quality clothing items and GREAT basic pieces. If you follow me on Instagram, then you have seen the adorable puffer jacket I got from them. I feel in love with it and comes in several different colors. They also have a Men’s department which Chris seemed to enjoy as well! There aren’t any in Texas but I am keeping my fingers crossed one opens soon!
PARIS: TO DINE
This is also a little tricky to cover as there are so many incredible restaurants in Paris! Even just going to Paul when you are starving and on the go was better than most of the sandwiches or quiches I have on a regular basis in the United States. A lot of restaurants were closed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but eating wasn’t our biggest priority for those days. However, we found some great spots that are definitely worth trying again! We ate at Le Bizetro our first night in Paris. We loved this restaurant because it wasn’t as touristy as some we had seen earlier that day and loved the “neighborhood feel”. They had an excellent traditional French menu and I would definitely recommend the filet, hamburger, and french fries if you ever stop by!
Camille was another favorite of mine and a perfect lunch spot. They had a delicious menu and also the best french onion soup that I have ever had! I also ended up getting steak and frites (again) and saw so many adorable dogs when I was in there! This is a great spot not too far from Notre Dame and by some other shopping where I found the Uniqlo. I wish the US allowed more dogs in restaurants like Paris!
I don’t think I can say enough good things about Ozio. I had the pesto pasta and we all ordered pizzas as appetizers and it was AMAZING! It is about a 5-10 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower, which is so perfect if you are in that area! On our last night before we went to Reims, we ate at Le Corner. Again, there wasn’t much open due to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but the food here was right by where we were staying and it was amazing. I had a baked chicken and Chris had the seafood stew. This also was really close to the Eiffel Tower. Don’t be fooled by the unoriginality of the name – it’s amazing! And yes, it’s on THE corner, haha.
Finally, we loved grabbing drinks at Hotel Costes. It was so beautiful inside and would be a lovely place to stay another time! They have an incredible restaurant that came highly recommended to us. Although we didn’t get to eat there, we enjoyed their lounge and bar the night before Christmas Eve! The scenery was very chic and definitely felt like you were on vacation. There was great people watching and a variety of cocktails. This was not too far away from Champs-Elysees and would be fun to go to and grab dinner or drinks after spending the day shopping!
Before we headed to Belgium, our final part of our trip to France was going to Reims and visiting Maison Veuve Clicquot. This was probably one of my favorite parts of the whole trip! Does anyone else love Veuve as much as I do? Right as you drive up to Veuve you are greeted by a massive orange Veuve Clicquot sign! This could be Disney World for adults. I was so giddy the whole time and know that Chris and I were the stragglers of the whole tour as we were always behind and taking way too many photos! I mean, it’s not every day you get to tour the cellars of Veuve, right?
The tour was so much fun and extremely informative. We learned that Madame Clicquot was the one who came up with a way to properly remove sediments from a bottle..aka – more champagne! As if I needed a reason to love it more! The cellars were so unique and unlike any of my other tours. They also host private tours which I definitely want to do next time we visit! This was such a fun way to end our trip in France and then make our journey on to Belgium!
