Finally the essential Paris travel guide & map are here! Two years ago Matt & I came to Paris. Fast forward to now, and we’ve fallen in love with the city, rented an apartment, and call Paris home 6 months out of the year. Eula took her first bite of food here, her first steps here, and celebrated her first birthday here. It’s become our second home. And I’ve gotten to know it so well, though it’s forever full of surprises. Below I’ve given you my Paris travel tips for the first timer along with my favorite stays, coffee, eats, drinks, and shops. And I’ve included a free map of the most Instagrammable photography spots in Paris….cause I miiiiight know a thing or two about that! The map also has my favorite eats & shops on it, and you can use it on your phone! It’s the perfect companion to a trip to Paris or planning one!

Which is to say, adding it into my daily routines, recipes, and rituals was something of a no brainer.

Meet the magical Adaptogen Coconut Cacao Bliss Ball with Reishi & He Shou Wu. I wasn’t always a lover of the so-called “bliss ball”. The one’s I had to be unpleasantly sweet and sticky and chunky, a poor substitute for my sweet vices (namely Haribo gummis of all kinds…). But I couldn’t shake the idea of pretty little balls of energy filled with nutritional bliss. I shelved the idea for ages, but since I started making my own coconut milk for my coconut matcha lattes, I’ve found myself in possession of a lot of coconut pulp that I can’t bring myself to toss. I really wanted to call them Calming Immortality Beauty Bliss Balls. But that’s a bit over the top. And “balls” kinda makes everything funny. Calming Immortality Beauty Bliss Truffles? Eh, we’ll stick with adaptogen coconut cacao bliss balls. Read on to learn more about the magic ingredients!
