Merry Christmas [Last Minute]

Hello all beautiful people,

I hope you are all doing fine and getting ready to have the best holidays ever.

Here goes some Christmas Inspiration – as you know I am rocking the whole minimal style, so I am loving these.

Those pics may also work as some last minute ideas to decor the house/entertain.

Total Black Look

Mr. Total Black Look.

Indeed.

I’ve flown out from Paris to Porto for these holidays and could not pack many things in my luggage. Plus, as I am a complete disaster when it comes to packing (although reading tons of tips about that) now it appears that I am struggling a lot for putting together some cute outfits. Sigh.

And oh well, when nothing else works, go for a total black look.

Inspo found on Pinterest. Hope you enjoy!

Well here – do I need to a say a thing? YES. DA HAT. Love it.

This one, well. It could be me on a sassy-ish day 😉 Love the chunky scarf, the suit and the shoes – need to get my hands on  good pair like this ASAP.

Hope you enjoyed!

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.

ARE YOU SERIOUSLY WEARING THESE SHOES?!

Today’s Song!

Hi guys!

Well, I NEEDED to post this. I may be super late on this trend, I don’t know. But this is such a surprise for me.

If like me you have already been to a beach with little rocks instead of sand (I spent all my summer in Nice– South of France, until last year), you may have already used these little sexy things.

You may know that I started a TUMBLR account (follow here!) two days ago. Can you guess what have popped to my eyes everyday since then?

OH YEA. The shoes are back brothers! HOW COOL?! Never thought they could look that cute.

What do you think? YAY or NAY?

Going for a swim will never be a nightmare again. Well, at least this summer. Dear trend, YOU CAN STAY IN.

XOXO,

Let’s have a break!

As you may know I have been wanting to get away from my town for a few days in order to relax and just breathe a different air.

I was thinking about spending a week end in a hotel or so and enjoy all the amazing services inside of it.

There are some key moments that I love when staying in a hotel. First, fiding my bedroom in the corridors, then discovering the actual room (the bathroom, the beds, the closet, the view, THE MINI BAR!), finally enjoy as I told the services meaning, dining room (breakfast!), room service, swimming pool, spa etc. (AAH!)

But yes, to me the breakfast really is a big deal! So I would like to ask you what do you prefer?

What are YOUR favorite moments?

What are your next projects for a break?

Pack & Fly (Away)

GUYS, I WANT TO TRAVEL SO SO BADLY!

Imagine I’m this girl (well I am a brunette but still, try to picture me). I have everything folded and packed. Just need a destination and some cash in my pockets. 

I don’t know why but I want to go to England since Christmas (well, actually I know why: it’s because of all the amazing british youtubers and because I want to shop there)! Any English bloggers who want P&F in their house? hahaha

In case you are thinking about travelling these days or if you are like me (needing some fresh air), enjoy the pics below.

Random Stuff

Hello everyone! As you may know, I’ve been super busy with all my college exams and finding some cool ideas of posts, have been a very tough task. However, I did not want to stop posting! So, here goes my most random post ever! YAY (-_-)

Let’s start with a nice DIY,

Image

You may not know this, but the major part of my clothes is very sobre and plain. I’m starting to buy more colorful stuff now and some cool crazy pattern, but until this point it was not what I would buy. As a consequence of that, most part of my closet is very basic and dark. And during the winter, I like to add some pop of color, because the days are already not very bright so, I think you should add some color to your outfits! 🙂

For all these reasons, I’ve been cra-zy looking for some big bold colorful necklaces! So when I saw this DIY, I absolutely fell in love! I think I will try this next week end and may post about it. You can follow all the steps in this website.

You may know yesterday was Epiphany, and from what I know countries have all sorts of different traditions. I think it is really interesting to get to know the different ones, so feel free to share what’s yours! I was born and raised in France. There, the tradition is to eat the Galette des rois (name of the cake, see above). In this cake there is a hidden “bean” (I did not know how to translate the actual word but Google Translate told me that was the best one.. There is a link attached in case the word is not explicit enough – haha). The person who finds that bean is the King and gets to wear the little gold crown! Cool, huh? 😀

Well, and this date marks the end of Christmas so I took all the Xmas decorations down! I found this adorable wreath on Pinterest and I thought it was really really cute. I guess the fact that it is squared don’t give that much of a holiday effect and it’s okay to have it in your house all year long. I think the white and grey give a very nice Winter effect which I think is really cute for the season! 🙂

Hope you liked these small random stuff and I’ll talk to you very soon.

XOXO,

P&F
