• WHEN A COUCHE BECOMES THE TRAVEL REFERENCE

    LAST WEEK I VISITED PARIS WITH MY DEAR FRIEND MARIE. PARIS WAS CROWDED OR AT LEAST THE HOTELS WERE ALL BOOKED OUT. INDEED, THE FAMOUS FRENCH TENNIS TOURNAMENT ROLAND GARROS WAS HAPPENING ON THE SAME WEEK/WEEKEND AND THERE WERE OTHER FAIRS TAKING PLACE AROUND AND IN PARIS. AS I LOVE DESIGN, I THOUGHT OF BOOKING US AN HOTEL WITH A SPECIAL LOBBY, AT LEAST TO ME. THE NEW HOTEL LE VOLTAIRE LOCATED IN LE 11EME ARRONDISSEMENTS, A LOVELY NEIGHBORHOOD NORTHWEST FROM LE MARAIS AND VERY CLOSED TO THE PLACE DE LA BASTILLE, HAS A BEAUTIFUL COUCH IN ITS LOBBY. ONE OF MY FAVORITE SWISS BRAND, DE SEDE, DESIGNS INCREDIBLE SOFA.…

  • PARIS, RUINART & VIK

    A month ago I had the chance to travel to Paris and Reims with Ruinart, the oldest (1729) and famous champagne Maison. It was a dreamy experience as Ruinart is definitely my favorite champagne not only to sip but also to learn from. Indeed, every year Ruinart collaborates with an artist who creates and interprets his vision of the champagne house and its domain through several artworks. This year, Vik Muniz, the Brazilian sculptor famous for his unorthodox choices of material for his art compositions was chosen and revealed as the Ruinart’s artist 2019. After checking-in into the beautiful Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers in the 3ème arrondissement de…

  • Un voyage à Bordeaux Aux Sources de Caudalie

      It has been a while that I have not been to a spa as splendid as Les Sources de Caudalie. Located in the countryside of Bordeaux you will fell in love with this place. Let me draw you the picture; drive 15 minutes away south from the city center of Bordeaux, and you will enter a magical scenery full of vineyards and castles. The region of Bordeaux (Gironde) is famous for their red wine. Almost every wine estate possesses its own castle, or vice versa. It’s a beautiful region where nature and wine will make you daydream. I highly recommend you to visit some wine estate to try some…

  • Took off to NYC one year ago

    I have not really shared more of my voyage in New York, I guess I wanted to keep it for myself. My Instagram feed also changed a bit and I was mostly working or discovering the city, then the blog was not a priority anymore. 14.05.17 was a decisive date for me, that was the day I took off for my internship in New York. Or in other words my dream internship in my dream city. Indeed, I was going to work at one of my favorite label of all time The Row. In addition, to enter the very closed Fashion circle, I was going to spend some time in…

  • Côté make-up & skin care

    It’s been a long time since I have posted. For those who don’t know I’ve recently started videos more and more – let’s be honest here, it’s difficult but so interesting to explore! I love it while hating it at the same time – it’s like directing the mini vision you have in your head and turn it into reality – however editing take quite some time. Anyways, I am learning and I will keep on doing so as well as publishing this article. Beauty and skin care have taken a huge part into my daily life. I want to share here my (current) favorites. I put current in bracket cause…

  • Two fall obsessions

    OMG! I have been super duper busy, and it’s not over at all! I mean it is great! I only had 4 days of post-New York depression. No! I’m kidding, but you know this feeling when you come back from holidays and get back to your routine and then you’re missing your holiday-life, now you see what I mean, right? So, since I just moved in with Forti and we got our dream apartment in the best neighborhood in Zürich, I’ve been busy with the blog slash videos, the move, university stuff (or mostly commuting time) and keep on being social (at least a bit ;) haha). As I love love…

  • Brooklyn without Coney wouldn’t be Brooklyn

    If you feel like New York is not really Merica, go to Coney Island and you’ll see. Coney Island is located in Brooklyn by the sea where the attractions of the amusement park offer the best view of the beach and the city skyline. Coney Island is the place where Brooklynite would go on weekends to enjoy some hot dogs and roller coasters. Speaking of roller coasters, the ‘Cyclone’ which first opened in 1927 is still working…and believe me I’ve been on it and I was more than surprised by this old one – honestly, I freaked out. The sounds while you are riding literally scare you. I have a…

  • Does magic only happen during the night?

    New York City might not be the City of Lights, but to me it is! Well, let me explain it to you. New York is an amazing and large metropolis famous for its energy and vibes that would bring you anywhere amongst many other things, but the big apple by night is definitely something else. It all starts by those burning evenings when the sun slides itself in between the big allées of skyscrapers, gets so hot onto your layers and bedazzles anyone who would dare to look at it. Usually called, sunset situations. The sky becomes truly orange and everybody opposite gets a bloody sanguine tan. It does not happen every…

  • SPICE UP YOUR LOOK

    Here is a black everything look (except for the bag) with really exciting and interesting pieces. Let’s start, from head to toes. I received this super lovely hat from A Lack of Color, for those who don’t about this brand, it is a quite famous Aussie label who creates beautiful hats. A mixture of light bohemian vibes and inspirations from the Seventies.. their hats are the Bomb! I picked this black one (I hope you know me by now) probably because of my dark hair and its fresh and Mediterranean design style. It’s called ‘Spencer Noir‘ in case you are wondering. The next very interesting item of this look is my…

  • The chicest attire for a pool day

    So, following my birthday chill day (article), I also wanted to do something special in order to mark the occasion. So, again with Laura and my friend Miranda, we booked a sunbed for three at the pool of the William Vale Hotel for the day. The hotel is located in Williamsburg almost in Greenpoint though..and the view is just superb – the whole Manhattan skyline! However, the pool is not as high as the Westlight, the rooftop bar at the top, but still, the place is a little heaven in Brooklyn. I’ve always wanted to chill one day by a pool on a rooftop in the middle of the city,…
