For Valentine’s Day…

Valentine's Day Tech

I was sick in bed all last week, with nothing to do but troll the web and build my Valentine’s Day wish list. Dangerous.

I might just have to dust off my language skills from high school and tell Siri to read my emails to me en français. Each of these products— for your self, your home or your tech— has that je ne sais quoi that has me crushing on Parisian style. Oui oui!   phone case | soap + lotion | clutch | head form | jumper…
