Marrakech – Day 2 Photo Diary

Hey there,

As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April.  I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle.  Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place.  I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged.  However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.

Let’s (re-)discover the red city…

6 Summer Beauty Essentials – What To Pack For the Holiday?

Hey there,

For me, the holidays will be in September but I need to escape a little bit – I’m almost counting the days…  So, I gathered here my 6 beauty essentials, the 6 products I’ll definitely pack for my holidays.  I know it’s early but it’s so exciting to think about your beauty kit, don’t you think?  Besides, I’m pretty sure that some of you are leaving sooner than me (a lot of you probably already came back, sorry about that ladies), so maybe you’ll be interested in some ideas for your beauty kit.  And if you’re staying at home or if you already went on holidays this summer, I still think this post can be of interest: these beauty essentials are still valid for the summer even if you stay at your place 🙂

Marrakech – Day 1 Photo Diary

Hey there,

In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco.  It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions.  I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time.  I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉

“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech.  […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […]  Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]

My Dream Dressing Room

Hey guys,

How are you doing today?

So, a couple of weeks ago someone asked me what my dream dressing room looks like.  And it got me thinking about some “famous” dressing rooms.  My first memory of a dreamy dressing room is Jenna Rink’s; aka Jenifer Garner in 13 going on 30 (remember that movie?).  And then, Mia’s in the Princess Diaries.  And finally, Blair Waldorf’s.  Just so you know the level I’m at right now.

These fabulous dressing rooms make me want to invest – some day – in a gorgeous one for myself.  Even more so that I’ll probably get my own place pretty soon.  Obviously, I won’t be able to afford a huge apartment right away but that won’t stop me from dreaming and imagining my perfect space for when I’m a real grown-up 😉 (wait, shouldn’t I be a real one by now?)

Gifu, Japan – Photo Diary

Hey there,

Sorry for the long absence, but work has been a b**ch lately and I couldn’t find a single moment to stop and write something down.  I’m glad I can do it now and connect with you again after this delay 🙂

So last week I got back from an a-ma-zing journey in Japan.  I started with Gifu, I went to Kyoto, and finished with Tokyo.  I’ll show you some pictures of these great cities, starting with the first one I visited.

I know that if I ever have the opportunity to go back, I will jump at the chance!  And if you think of going there: stop thinking about it and just go!!!  You will not regret it.  The people are super sweet and extremely respectful.  The views are simply stunning.  And you have great food.  What more could you ask for?
