Gold, glitter, and some French; how much more darling can you get? These little elements make up some of blogger Emily Snider’s site, Em La Jolie. La Jolie stands for the pretty, lovely, or nice-looking, which is a French translation that describes Emily’s blog right on point. This twenty-one year old East Coast-at-heart gal is currently blogging all the way from Paris. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? She shares some breathtaking photos of her travels with her readers, including food reviews, overseas looks, and her thoughts about her Paris journey. Her “101 Things in 1,001 Days” bucket-list post, which she started last year as a New Year’s resolution, is a must-check-out piece on her blog, especially for the holiday season.
