The Critics Love (to Hate) Me!

Though Lucy in Paris dot com remains my passion, I’ve been expanding my writing to other outlets, like the school newspaper and BuzzFeed. Particularly BuzzFeed this week.

Thanks to Delta Skymiles! What did you think I meant? This summer I’ve been to Chicago, Virginia Beach, Baltimore, and, of course, Tennessee.

Mon Retour

At this point, you’re probably sarcastically saying, Were you, like, in France or something? because I pretty much incorporate it into conversation anytime I get the chance. Is she still going to talk about living in France? Well it was basically the peak of my life so YEAH, I’d say I’m still going to talk about living in France. But just for a minute.
