#SMART –> Whistles

As you figured, P&F is mostly a sharing spot. I love browsing through clothing and decor shops, streets, restaurants, magazines and blogs.

I wanted to share some of the nicest branding/marketing ideas I have been seeing all over the web during the last week. Some brands have beautiful ideas and are really inspiring. Today I decided to share one part of the Whistles website.

It has this “Inspiration” tab that is very VERY nice. Over there you can find some collabs with artists and other models, some ideas on ways to wear their clothes, and mostly you have the “neighbourhoods”. The latter is the best to me. Basically they take you to the neighbourhood of their stores (mainly in Britain but also internationally) . Examples: Whistles in Nottin Hill, Cambridge, Berlin, NYC, etc.

It is genius marketing and branding for Whistles and their partners, but also, reading these small posts offer a beautiful moment to the reader that gets to see amazing pictures and also learn a little bit more about these cities and companies that are featured. Those reader who will likely become consumer-to-be ;)

If I may – Well done Whistles.

Hope you enjoy it!

Monikh’s Little Treasures

MONIKH

EN

I discovered Monikh through Estée from Essie Button (love love love her). Monikh is a personnal shopper at Top Shop and has amazing style that she features in her fashion blog. Her blog is very nice but what I personally prefer is her instagram account where she shows little moments of her everyday life (and of course some outfits) but also wonderful quotes that all have the same typo and give so much harmony to her page. I wanted to share some of them that are particularly inspiring to me. I might print and frame them! Hope you like them. :)

FR

J’ai découvert Monikh à traver le blog d’Estée, Essie Button (que j’a-dore!). Monikh est une personnal shopper pour Top Shop qui a un incroyable style qu’elle partage dans son blog mode. Ce dernier est vraiment sympa mais j’ai personnellement un petit penchant pour son compte instagram où on peut apercevoir des petits bouts de sa vie de tous les jours avec évidemment ses tenues mais aussi de fabuleuses citations à la typo constante qui donnent une forte harmonie à sa page. Je voulais partager avec vous mes citations préférées que je vais surement imprimer et encadrer dans ma chambre! J’espère que vous les aimerez autant que moi. :)

Descobri a Monikh através do blog da EstéeEssie Button (que adoro adoro!). Monikh é uma personnal shopper para a loja Top Shop com um estilo incrível que partilha no seu blog de moda. Gosto muito do blog mas tenho uma certa preferência pela sua pagina do instagram onde partilha o sei dia a dia o que inclui nomeadamente os seus outfits mas também muitas citações que ela partilha sempre com a mesma tipografia o que da muita harmonia a sua pagina. Decidi partilhar aquelas que mais me têm inspirado ultimamente e que estou muito seriamente a pensar imprimir e colocar em molduras para o meu quarto! Espero que gostem tanto como eu. :)

McGregor Afterwork Party

Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to go to the Mcgregor afterwork party in Paris, for the launching of their first women collection in France.

The event was absolutely divine: DJ Mayah Levels @mayahlevels , was there to rock our world – doing a perfect job mixing some of my dearest commercial tunes with a hint of hip hop, Champagne was bubbling in our glasses, miniature cupcakes were the most adorable (and delicious!) thing ever, and those candy buckets just made my life complete at that precise moment.

There were two different ateliers, one for having your manicure done, another one to take amazing pictures.

Now let’s talk more about their collection. As some of you may know already McGregor is a brand with strong Scottish heritage that we can particularly feel through the plaid that appear in their collections. However they have an important diversity in their collection some lines are more focused towards sportswear, other ones are more casual and you can also find a very fine luxurious line. I invite you to check them out here to discover the brand if you don’t love it already.

I recorded a tiny bit of the event to share with you and this way you could feel the atmosphere a bit better. If anyone in the video does not want to appear, please let me know and I will immediately take it down.

I also had the opportunity of meeting a wonderful blogger Delphine that took some amazing shots at this party. Say hi @ dustylemadame.com !

This post was very different for me so let me know if you liked it and if you would like to see more of these.

Cheers,

What does 200 stand for?

EN

Ladies and Gentlemen,

This is officially the 200th post I am publishing on P&F! I can’t believe it – I did not notice I had written so much on the blog!

And this number means another special thing for me as I’ve reached 200 likes on Facebook the other day! It is not a lot but it is still another benchmark that I just passed and I am so happy to see P&F developping and getting more and more readers each day.

I sincerely hope everyone is still enjoying very much my content and once again do not hesitate in giving suggestions about what you would like to see next.

Mesdames, Messieurs,

Ceci est officiellement mon 200ème article publié sur P&F! Je n’arrive pas à le croire – je ne me suis absolument pas rendue compte que j’avais tant écrit sur le blog!

Mais ce chiffre représente quelque chose d’autre de très spécial à mes yeux, le fait d’avoir passé la barre des 200 “j’aime” sur Facebook! Cela peut paraître peu, mais c’est tout de même une étape de franchie et je suis vraiment très heureuse de voir que P&F se développe et que le blog connaît tous les jours de nouveaux lecteurs.

J’espère sincèrement que le contenu continue de vous plaire (en particulier j’espère que vous appréciez cette petite nouveauté: les articles en 3 langues!) mais n’hésitez pas à me donner des suggestions sur le type d’article que vous aimeriez me voir publier davantage.

Senhores e Senhoras,

Este é oficialmente o meu 200° artigo publicado no P&F! Não consigo acreditar – não me apercebi minimamente que já tinha escrito tantos artigos para o blog!

Mas este número representa algo mais para mim, o facto de ter passado o limite dos 200 “gostos” no Facebook! Pode parecer pouco, mas sempre é um etapa passada e fico mesmo feliz por ver que o P&F continua a desenvolver-se e que todos os dias se juntam mais leitores para seguir o blog.

Espero sinceramente que o conteúdo continue de agradar a todos e mais uma vez, não hesitem em deixar sugestões relativamente ao tipo de artigos que gostariam de ver mais.

Voltem a viver os melhores momentos do P&F!

Polo Game in London

As some of you may know already, I spent a month in London last summer. Although I was there for my studies, I had the opportunity to explore the city, taste a tiny bit of the British lifestyle and mostly, meet a lot of amazing people.

972344_10151595216723553_623400045_n 539661_10151595215638553_678250485_n

One day after classes, a friend of mine suggested going to see a polo game – I accepted the invitation right away as I think it is such a beautiful sport and I had never been to any game before.

When we arrived I was so excited to see all the horses (that I think are one of the most beautiful and elegant creatures ever), the players in their nice uniforms and everyone dressed up to attend the game.

What I liked about it was that you could either appreciate the game from one side, sitting down and enjoying a cup of tea, or be on the other side (more casual) throwing your own picnic with friends.

In fact, I was expecting the game to be much more dynamic. You don’t have that many players in both teams but the field has to be huge for the horses to run. As a result, the action may not going on in front of you everytime. This was the only downside.

I loved to see how fast the horses went, and then how precise, delicate but yet strong the kick had to be done for the players to throw the ball. Absolutely amazing.

If you ever go to a polo game and if you are able to bring a picnic or so, I would suggest you to do that. Attending a game like this is more about the atmosphere and enjoying the time spent with your friends and family than really bein drawn to the action (at least in my case because I am not a fine connaisseur of this sport).

Have you ever been to a game like this?

Hoping you are having a wonderful week.
