Snapshots In Nice, France

The patisserie windows truly speak for themselves. The streets are lined with endless varieties of macarons, and the freshest, most mouthwatering fruit topped pastries you've ever witnessed.

Nouveau App!

I came across this wonderful (free) app yesterday and couldn't help but clicking "install" right away. As the weather gets cooler, I always turn to my silk scarves to add some much needed colour to my outfits. I display my collection on the back of my bedroom door, loosely knotted to a set of hooks:
J'ai trouvé cette merveilleuse application (gratuite) hier et j'ai immédiatement cliqué "install". Quand le temps se refroidit, j'utilise mes foulards de soie pour ajouter un peu de couleur à mes tenues. J'affiche ma collection sur la porte de ma chambre, attaché à crochets:

Silk scarves collected from various second hand stores, family members, vacations, etc.
It happens far too often that I simply forget to slip one of these pretty pieces off their rack to tie around my neck as I head out in the morning. After watching the short and sweet video below, I quickly began to pair scarves with various outfits and jackets. I would definitely recommend a watch, and for those apple users out there, take note of the simple yet sophisticated methods of "knotting" featured in the classy new app by Hermès.
J'oublie souvent de porter une de mes belles foulards quand je sorte au matin. Après avoir regardé cet petit video au dessous, j'ai commencé à assortir foulards avec des tenues. Je recommanderais de regarder, et pour les iGens (lol) noter les façons simples de "nouer" présenté dans cette nouvelle application par Hermès. 




Happy knotting!

Madeline,

Travelling to Monaco

The view from behind some trees of Port Hercule in Monaco.
Monaco is a (rather petit) country of opulent living. Every square foot is looked after, to ensure a perfect getaway for the world's top tier. 
Monaco est un pays (plutôt petit) de vie opulent. Chaque pied carré est maintenue propre, pour assurer une escapade idéale pour le Tout-Paris.

Travelling To Menton and Èze

Situated near the boarder of France and Italy, Menton and Èze did not fail to impress. We had the most beautiful sunny weather, despite the chilly breeze.


Blazer- Club Monaco, Pants- Gap, Chambray- Forever 21, Sweater- H&M, Scarf- H&M, Shoes- American Apparel, Bag- Coach
 Even though it was technically winter in France, the greenery was strikingly beautiful. From blossoming fruits and flowers to cacti and succulents, every corner is sprinkled with a bit of greenery.

Castle Hill In Nice, France

The beach view from Castle Hill, Nice
 The pictures captured on and around Castle Hill have found their place as my desktop background ever since I returned home from France. The sunshine made for stunning shots, while the cold air left the beach and streets uncrowded.
Les photos que j'ai prises autour de Castle Hill ont été mon background depuis que je suis rentré chez moi. Le soleil a aidé à crée des images éblouissant, tandis que l'air froid a laissé la plage et les rues pas bondé.

How beautiful life is in the French Riviera..
La vie est si belle dans la Côte d'Azur..
Salade Niçoise, and moules-frites at a local restaurant. The most vibrant fresh flowers and fruits decorated our table.
