The city of Nice may be the most famous of the Côte d’Azur. I love how it is a perfect mix between the touristy areas and the more typical ones: The English Promenade Vs. The Old Nice.
Along the sea you will find the English Promenade and if you walk towards the inner part of the city, you will find the old town. Both sides are absolutely gorgeous and I think it is so beautiful how the whole landscape changes. You will pass from perfect turquoise water on the beach, to warm yellow and orange houses surrounded by cute little restaurants.
We arrived in Nice in the morning, went to a restaurant on the beach to enjoy a nice cup of coffee and chilled there listening to pretty cool smooth music.
After that, we went back on the promenade and took a bunch of pictures because all the colors were looking absolutely amazing.
We then decided to climb the famous Castle Hill – not hard at all to climb and the views we got to see made us speechless. We stumbled upon a wonderful park with a lot of kids and families having picnics – it was so cute!
After coming down the hill we decided to go for lunch in the old town and had the very typical “socca” ( a type of tortilla/corn pancake), amazing warm goat cheese salad, and mussels. It was delicious! Of course we could not enjoy it to the max without a little glass of Rosé 😉
Overall it was an absolutely wonderful day and if you go there I highly recommend living the whole experience. Try to explore the city as much as you can!

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

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.

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.
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?
Getting ready to go downstairs?
What are YOUR favorite moments?
What are your next projects for a break?
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.
My last post today will be about boats, and sailing. This is a passion that I discovered a year ago.
Now it is completely different. I guess it is because now I am living in front of the ocean and I see these magnificent boats everyday.
After thinking a lot about it and annoying all my friends and family with that topic, I decided that I would take some sailing classes this next year in order to make my dream come true.
So, as you can see in the title, this is not something checked yet, but I hope that very soon there will be a post: “P&F Sailing! ✓!!”
Few weeks ago I visited a huge boat and yesterday I saw an amazing little sailing boats race. Wonderful!
The one that I visited was so amazing…
The two first pictures are random pictures from the internet, but the two last are pics that I took.
Hope you enjoy this as much as I do…
Do you have some experience sailing? Share it!
Here goes the first Do It Yourself (DIY) article!
You feel like having a nice and quick little sandwich for a snack or so? I found this very cute way of customizing your sandwiches. I think it is so cute, can wait for doing it! It is the easiest thing to do – follow the steps on the Sugar and Cloth blog (which I love) and discover how to transform something random into something special.
