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]

Beijing Photo Diary

Hey there,

In September 2016, I had the chance to travel to Asia for the first time.  I  went to Beijing, China.  And it was quite a journey!  I visited the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, and the Great Wall of China.  Let’s relive this trip in pictures…

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?

San Francisco Photo Diary

Hey there,

I thought that today I would try a different kind of articles and in doing so launch a new category: Travels.

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”

These past couple of years, I had the chance to do some very interesting travelling – and I found out that I love, absolutely love it. I travelled by myself, and I think that made it even more special. First of all, I got to choose what I was doing every single day and I didn’t have to consult any other people. Second of all, if I had a problem I had to take care of it by myself too and I learned a lot.

The first time I travelled – far away – by myself was to California, and more specifically to the San Francisco area. For most people, San Francisco is on their dream destination list. I must admit… I was not disappointed!   I took one of those tour buses, very touristy but I didn’t care because I wanted to see as much as possible and I had only one day there so I had to make the most of it. And I did!
