EVENING ACCESSORIES

Paris August 2016

WHEN fall is around the corner and sales finally over it just makes me wanna update my closet and see what newness is out there. As my boyfriend been away for weeks traveling plus most of my friends on vacation, I basically had the time to actually detox my wardrobe and put them up on Vestiaire Collective, if you’re curious you can click here to see what’s still left!!

After all that work (seriously it takes forever) I felt like I was worth a treat. I popped into Givenchy where I sooner or later found myself falling in love with two slightly more edgy evening accessories. Then I thought to myself: “It really has been ages since I pampered myself with something pretty”. About an hour later, I walked out with a smile and an elasticated pochette (love the orange strap detail as it changes your day look for evening) and a chunky gold chain richer – tada! Hope to put up an outfit with them very soon!

STAYCATION

Paris August 2016

MEANWHILE everyone is still on vacation I’m enjoying the empty streets and open tables. Luckily, a few fellows came back this week. However if you’re here in Paris (surviving the +37 degrees… I’m not) I suggest a fresh break at my favorite Hotel Plaza Athénée on Avenue Montaigne with its red awnings and French charm.

MONDAY MOOD

90s bitch Tank | THE ROW      T-shirt | COMME DES GARÇONS       Necklace | GIVENCHY

ANYONE growing up singing to Ace of Base in your parents’ living room every Friday evening (my poor family had caught up with me) in a a white top or shirt styled with a black tank, Levi’s and a black velvet choker, probably knows where I’m going with this. The latest street styling and now on the fashion shows, is clearly showing us that the 90’s are back. The classic spaghetti tank over a top, or it can be anything from a t-shirt to a turtleneck, to a shirt to a blouse, the list is indefinite… Simply don’t feel like you need to limit yourself, it can even be a dress or vest instead of a tank. Today I thought I share my quick fix if you don’t know what to wear for work, home, school or whatever lovely thing you’re planning to do on this particular day. A plain white tee (or with a retro print) with a plain black tank, together with you favorite jean, will take you long. If you need more styling tips check out these hot girls too…“but I’m a 90’s bitch”! Or follow me on my Instagram stories today where I will take on the trend.

IBIZA APARTMENT

Ibiza ApartmentWHEN I go traveling I love exploring new places or simply the same area but from another perspective. This summer we decided to rent an apartment on Airbnb that was nearby everything as well as inspiring. As it was only the two of us and not a big group traveling, which might be the criteria for Ibiza, we explored a completely different island, which I truly recommend.

Back to the subject of choosing a place, this summer we then looked for a creative-boho-esque apartment that could influence our style. As it actually made us update our interior in Paris I thought I it share with you, especially the hammock and bed canopy… Just click on MORE fore full story!

HEALTHY LUNCH

Ibiza June 2016

IT’S raining in Paris and the town is dead as it’s the official vacation month in France. As I changed jobs not too long ago I choose to work. However, I can’t help myself drifting away to a sunny beach with background music and delicious food. All your lovely insta photos are not helping – but keep them coming!

As you know I love food, however I rarely over eat (unless someone is putting sweets in front of me, I can go bananas…) and that’s why most things are considered healthy. Maybe you seen that I try to stay away from any certain diets? It’s simply because I don’t believe in them and honestly I don’t have time to suffer nor plan my social food life (can you even be spontaneous then?). With that said I still buy organic and near produced food. Seldom processed food, I’m more on home made stuff as I want build myself strong from the inside. Also, I try not to eat carbs in the evening, which helps you to stay in shape. But you have to work out, whatever works for you. It’s probably the key to any joy or at least for me!! So today I’m dreaming back to this nacho platter that I had in Ibiza with home made nachos and dips, and yes I think it’s healthy!

FASHION NOTES

FOR me style is all in the details and how you move yourself. For this Fall I will definitely invest in some different pink shades to express my look in a minimalistic way by accenting with a nice piece of jewelry or a brooch, why not go a bit decadent for the evening set? For more inspiration you can surf into my Pinterest. Have a fab day!

CALVI ON THE ROCKS BY DAY

Calvi on the Rocks 2016

DURING the day there’s three beaches to cruise along, but really only two that’s worth going to (oops!!). So how to choose, well I kind of looked up the schedule and picked my DJ of the day that I wanted to move my body to. Don’t even try or think that you will actually joggle between them all, including a fancy lunch place off sight, every day… You need a car, vespa or boat, if not you’re kind of screwed or at least let’s put it this way – you’re not going to enjoy it as much. So which two are the beaches for me? Easy as always In Casa on Calvi Plage and then Villa Schweppes at Mar A Beach. What’s really nice with the latter is that you ride the boat over from Calvi harbour. Let’s a sneak peak at my iPhone album:
