France

From La Ciotat with love

•••
When I say the South of France, I bet you instantly think of sunning yourself on a yacht in Cannes, Nice or St Tropez. Well I say it's nice if you can afford it! But you don't have to have a budget as big a super yacht to experience life in the South of France; you just have to be savvy about where to stay! La Ciotat and the neighbouring towns of Cassis a[...]

Last-minute NYE tips for Paris, London or New York

•••
New Year's Eve - the one night of the year that we repeatedly have too high expectations for. Awaiting a kiss from Mr. Handsome at 12 o'clock sharp while you're at the perfect party with your girlfriends, sipping bubbly and dressed to the nines? It may be a long shot, but one you're especially likely to succeed at if you're in one of the world's inofficial "[...]

Paris Nostalgia - Part II

•••
The thing about Paris is that it never gets old. Or older. Or younger. Somehow, in Paris time stands still. That's part of what makes it so special. The streets are filled with life, food and smells and on every corner there is a photo waiting to be taken. When you go to Paris and really see it, you'll know why it's called the city of love. And the beauty of[...]

Paris Nostalgia - Part I

•••
Visiting Paris is always a slice of magic. I once lived in here for 3 years and I still get enchanted by the pittoresque streets, the little cafes and the charms of French people. After an almost 2 year-absence I went back last week for Paris Fashion Week. However, I ended up spending next to no time at shows but wandered the streets of the French capital[...]

•••
As one of the largest and beautiful palaces in the world Le château de Versailles should (hopefully) be high on the list of places to visit when you are in Paris. The royal reign at Versailles ended in the late 1700's around the time when the French were in the mood for choping off some heads and thus decapitated their King and Queen (Louis XVI and Ma[...]

The most beautiful beach in the world

•••
If I were to ask you to name the most beautiful beach in the world what would you say? Somewhere exotic in Thailand, a secluded island in the Caribbean, or maybe you’re tempted by the crystal clear waters of Mexico? Perhaps a beach in the south of France would not be a natural choice but I recently found somewhere I consider to be amongst the most beautiful [...]

They offer sewing machines to rent for 6€ an hour, professional advice and help included. Next to coffee and cake they[...]

Outdoor Cinemas in Berlin, Paris, London and New York

•••
Open air cinemas are a wonderful invention. Sitting underneath the stars in a folding chair with your buddy/boyfriend/cousin/mom and dad/neighbor watching a movie you've always wanted to watch while sipping on a cool beer is a great way to spend your summer nights. My first time in an open air cinema was in Paris, where they show free movies at different [...]
