Annecy, France

When my friend Rachel reminded me that we had a four-day weekend, we decided to explore the eastern part of France, starting in Annecy.

Okay, time to get back on track with my fall break adventures. I already told you about Krakow, so now it's time for Prague!

Birchbox Pop-Up Shop (Paris, France)

When researching ideas for my weekend in Paris, I was so excited to learn that Birchbox France was hosting a pop-up shop--perfect timing!

Admittedly, I have not subscribed to Birchbox France. It costs 13 €/month (compared with $10/month in the U.S.) and almost all of my money is going toward traveling--in fact, a one-month Birchbox subscription here would pay for a train ride to Paris! Still, I couldn't resist visiting the pop-up shop and seeing what it was all about!

Lille, France - VLOG

I know I haven't even finished posting about my October vacation, but I just spent the weekend in Lille at the marché de Noël (Christmas market). Normally, I'd wait until the rest of the travel posts are up, but this is not only time sensitive (it's Christmas, after all!) but it's also a vlog! Yes, that's right, I tried my hand at vlogging.

So instead of writing about my weekend, I photographed and filmed it.

As this was my first time vlogging, I know the video could have been so much better, so I'd love any tips you may have! (FYI, most of it was filmed on my iPhone 5S.) Also, feedback about whether I should continue to vlog my trips or go back to writing about them would be wonderful. Thanks in advance!

Shoutout to my lovely travel buddies for putting up with me as I experimented with vlogging this weekend. You ladies were great sports!

Krakow, Poland

About a month and a half ago, I set out for Eastern and Central Europe with one of my roommates and our friend. Don't worry, you'll hear all about the trip! But first stop: Krakow.
