Sleeveless Blazer

You may not know this about me but I am a real blazer lady.

I love my blazers for any occasions. When I want to dress up they are almost a must to me, but when I want to be more casual and throw one some jeans, sneakers and a cute top, I love topping everything up with a cool blazer to add structure.

In fact, I am not the most curvy girl on Earth so when I opt for more slouchy look, I sometimes feel some lack of structure in the whole outfit. Is there anyone in the same case? So this item is a must for me for these situations. haha

Now what about summer time? One still need to add structure to the lazy summer outfits but those long sleeves are just too warm then! ;) SO THAT IS WHEN I UNDERSTOOD WHAT THESE SLEEVELESS BLAZERS WERE FOR.

Yes, until I realized this, I was just very sceptical about this not so new trend. But it is actually genius! Look how great it looks! Once again, you cand ress it up or down, and you will still feel light and fresh.

#ALWAYSGOODTOREWATCHANOLDTEDTALK

Almost one year ago, I discovered this Ted Talk that absolutely amazed me.

Everything she says is so true and helpful.

I highly recommend watching it for the 1st, 2nd or 1000th time.

3 things I have always kept in mind since the first time I watched it:

- DOING THESE EXERCISES BEFORE AN INTERVIEW

- FAKE IT TILL YOU MAKE IT

- FAKE IT TILL YOU BECOME IT

Now go rock your world. ;)

So I got to spend a week in the South of France this month and wanted to share with you some relaxing and beautiful days spent there to hopefully give you some inpiration for your vacations or just day dream a bit.

An afternoon in Monaco :

- We walked around the quiet streets of the upper part of the coast

- Visited the Royal Palace and enjoyed the view from one of the highest spots of Monaco

- Went down to the Marina to see the gorgeous boats

- Headed to Monte Carlo to seet the high end shops, luxury hotels and of course THE gorgeous Casino

Highly recommend cheching out: http://www.hoteldeparismontecarlo.com/discover-the-hotel/virtual-tour/

We stopped at the Hotel de Paris for a drink at the Bar Américain. I highly recommend this place. Cocktails are not cheap but affordable and the whole experience is definitely worth it. The décor is splendid very 1930’s, everything is very woody, a wonderful piano stands making you think about all the great concerts this place may have known in the past and the current excellent ones. You can definitely feel the jazz vibe and we all know my love for it. THE PLUS SIDE: Cocktails come with delicious snacks and the staff personnel is the best you could ask for.

Dear Emma Watson,

UNWomen.org

UNWomen.org

At the beginning of this month, I read this article announcing that Emma Watson was going to be ONU Goodwill embassador

I was so amazed by this great achievement.

To me, this lady really has it all. She is a wonderful actress, a true humanitarian, and gorgeous model with a degree from Brown Univeristy to top it all.

I really admire how she managed to follow her dream of becoming an actress, being able to diversify her path in the artistic industry. But at the same time, she made a good use out of her notoriety and influence to achieve great humanitarians missions. In addition to that, she continued her academic education getting a degree in English literature, becomming a great influence to many young ladies.

She embodies to me, one of the greatest types of career one can get: learning from books and people, following dreams and hobbies, and at the same time, trying to make some difference in this world through active participation in volunteering and social improvement.

I would consider her a great role model.

Vilebrequin – The Preppy and Funny Brand

I have never mentioned Vilebrequin on my blog before but let me tell you this is one of my favorite brands ever for men swimwear.

Vilebrequin is highly known for its excellent quality fabrics, unique patterns with fun and vivid prints and finally the possibility of buying matching trunks for little boys and grownups for the father & son look.

Vilebrequin.com

Vilebrequin.com

This brand was created in the fabulous city of St-Tropez, in the French Riviera and embodies the whole croisette lifestyle.
– Early mornings having breakfast to the sound of cicadas
– Coffee & Newspaper reading at the Marina
– Lunch at the beach
– Late afternoon playing pétanque
- Dinner in family
– Night out (optional but good!)

In other words, the brand echoes a pretty prep lifestyle that I am all about. And what I love about it is that the funky prints will prevent the chic allure to become too posh looking. In fact you would expect the 40 year old man, matching his 4 year old with its turtle green and pink swim shorts, to be pretty cool, laid back and FUN.

In other words, this is definitely a P&F Brand to me and if you can get your loved ones a model from there – you would be the coolest!

They also have models for women that are pretty nice and that I invite you to check out – http://us.vilebrequin.com/.

Cheers,

World Cup over, let’s stay together

Dear all,

Not quite the soccer addict here, but I have to confess that I admire the power and position of this industry – as a business but also as a culture.  Millions of € are traded everyday thanks to it and millions of people gather to look at the same images whenever a game takes place.

This impact is particularly important when international teams meet such as in this year’s World Cup.

Competition may have raised some tensions around the world (among many other important ones), but it also brought people together and highlighted the beauty of sharing cultural differences – which is an area that I particularly love.

I had to share this song,  because I love these lyrics that bring a true feeling of international unity, something we need to fight for. Particularly in such an unstable World as the one we live in.

Put your flags up in the sky
And wave them side to side
Show the world where you’re from
Show the world we are one 

Let’s make this World a beautiful place.
