Shipment date recommendations for the holidays

This post brings you the recommended shipment deadlines for X-Mas gifts ordered in my online shop. But first things first. It is only a few days ago since I was in Paris, and yet it feels like it happened in the last century. Almost. This alone tells me how fast time seems to go by […]
