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.
Unexpected collab from 2011.
& look at all the FUN they are having!

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.
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/.
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.
I remember that a lot of you loved my “Today’s Song” and I am definitely going to keep it for you to listen to while reading my posts.
Alright so first things first.
That song! Amazing, huh?
I discovered this channel on Youtube and fell in love with so many of their songs. I think the most part of it is mix of songs with the house/chillout touch which is basically their brand.
I think there is something very sophisticated and seductive about this beat – which I absolutely love. It basically makes me day-dream which is something so typical of me.
If you liked this song let me suggest you my top 5 from that website:
- Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing
- Pharrell – Happy
- Klingande – Jubel
That is it for today, just a tiny recall for “Today’s Song”.
I hope you enjoyed it and are as excited as I am for next posts coming up.
For more content, please follow me on my other social medias.
So here I am typing again.
It does feel good.
As you may remember from my previous post, I stopped blogging last summer. I got into some sserious projects that continued over winter and I just had no time for P&F anymore.
Time will tell if this coming back is for good.
In the mean time, I have so many things I want to share with you! Can’t wait to share it all!
I hope you are all really excited and thank you to everyone who kept thinking about Preppy&Funny. It really means a lot.

I hope you are all doing fine, that you had an amazing summer time and back to school/wrok time was the best.
As you may have noticed my blog has stagnated over the last 2 months. Long story short, these month were very busy, lots of projects, lots of things changing in my life.
I thought you all deserved an explanation about my absence. Unfortunetely this is not a coming back… I truly loved this year (almost) of blogging: discovering and learning a lot of things and metting very interesting and nice persons.
I had such a good time, that I do think that I will continue this blog in a few months.
Until that time, I will keep following you guys, and hope to still have your support when I’ll finally come back.
Thank you to all of you who made this blogging experience so fulfilling.
