Introducing ‘PAS DE SAMEDI SANS BIGOUDI’

67734_10151568440386705_115467731_n

Hello my lovely ones and happy Monday to you! Today I decided to publish my last article related to my nice little weekend in Annecy… Indeed I wanted to introduce you to a very sweet and trendy French brand that is PAS DE SAMEDI SANS BIGOUDI!

In this little shop, I found two very nice bracelets I’m completely addicted to now! If it had only been me, I think I would have gone on a shopping spree!!!!

This very girly local shop is (in my opinion) a must-go when you’re a proper romantic fashion victim ;)!!! PAS DE SAMEDI SANS BIGOUDI ‘s jewellery and accessories are bright and colourful, slightly vintage and, above all, they inspire you the lust for life :D!!

Their talented creator, Sara Coulloud, will take you back to your childhood and will revive all your memories!!!

With  this, I hope you’ll like her photos and that they’ll make you want to have a cheeky buy someday soon ;)!

xoxo

InstaMagic #3

Woooo! I’m so happy to finally release the July InstaMagic!

So many things have happened this month, it’s just crazy!!! The barely unbearable heat, the lovely souvenirs from England that sometimes made me pretty nostalgic, the reunion with my beloved horse as well as with some of my French friends I’ve been soooo happy to see again, the French national day with the beautiful fireworks, the farniente life next to the swimming pool… well in short, SUMMERTIME instants!

I hope you’ll be delighted to share this month’s memories with me :p !!!

Wishing you a very nice little tour…. 😘

OLIVE… or the place to shop this summer if you wanna adopt the vintage preppy casual look that fits summer so well!!!! Thus I made 3 different collages, each of them reflecting a certain folksy & chic style!

As far as I’m concerned, I fell in love with my Casual Chic board! It’s pretty cool and classy at the same time! I just LOVE it, LOVE it, LOVE it!!! Though my own style is actually a mix of the 3 collages, I have a big crush for this one ;)!

What about you now, my lovely ones? Which one is your favourite? Which style is the closest to yours? Tell me everything, I’m listening (well… reading, actually ^^!)…

Ready, Steady, SHOP!!!!!

I hope you liked this post and I also hope I made you feel like having lots of cheeky buys at OLIVE ^^ !!!

✰ LONDON LONDON ✰

send from InstaText(Free iPhone_iPad App)

THIS is a post I’ve always wanted to write but… I’ve never really taken the time to write a post as incredible as it has to be when you talk about London! You know my love for this city and its inhabitants, so it was just a matter of time for me to get to write an article about it ^^!!!

But… today I’m not only writing for this reason… I promised one of my good friend’s little sister (who is going to London in a few days!!! Lucky her!!!!) that I would give her my good addresses in London and tell her what my favourite bits of this amazing city were!

So my lovely ones and my little sweet pea, get ready ’cause here’s my TOP 3…

1. Covent Garden (© photos by Tec Pateja – Airbnb)

Without any doubt, my favourite place to be in London… This district, full of street artists, very talented cheese maker (and I know what I’m talking about! Shall I remind you that I’m French?! :p), gorgeous museums, great taverns, operas and overwhelming with energy, IS the place you have to go to if you’re the kind of persons who dare get off the beaten track ;)!

2. The West End & Soho (© photos by Sophie Carr & Tec Pateja – Airbnb)

My second favourite place in London is OBVIOUSLY the West End and Soho! These districts are maybe the most famous districts that don’t sleep at night! The perpetual hustle and bustle of this area is just crazy and provides such a good feeling :)!!! And what can I say about the West End other than quoting its brilliant musicals, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square and Piccadilly Circus… I think everything that has to be said is within those 3 amazing locations and this great thing that characterises the West End that is the musicals!!!

And in Mayfair, not far from Covent Garden and Marylebone, you’ve got one of the greatest museum of London… I’m obviously talking about the maybe-sometimes-unexpected Opera Gallery…Bowie-Opera-Gallery-19

3. The South Bank (© photos by Daniel Burman – Airbnb)

In my opinion, this region of London is one of the greatest and most beautiful! Everything there seems so big and great (from the diverse and various street arts to the giant buildings, without forgetting the sight of the city itself) it’s really hard to believe you’re actually there! The South Bank definitely provides the most incredible panoramic view you can get of London!!!

Closely followed by…

4. Marylebone (© photos by Daniel Burman – Airbnb)

Marylebone, with its perfect geographic situation near the GREAT Hyde Park, is the synonym of elegance and refinement! There, you’ll find lovely little book shops, family patisseries and upmarket shops that will please the most sophisticated ;)!

5. Saint-James (© photos by Rebecca Duke – Airbnb)

The select district of central London is a symbol of prestige! There, the lovely Saint-James Park, impressive antiquarian markets, art galleries and grandiose terraces are on the cards!!!

6. Camden Town (© photos by Tec Pateja, Sophie Carr & Rebecca Duke – Airbnb)

Formerly a hospital for horses, Camden, which is situated behind Regent Street, is now one of the most expensive districts of London!!! Leather, nails, combat boots, pubs, pop art, concerts and markets are THE key words to describe the atmosphere in Camden! In a few words, there’s everything you need to fill your rebel’s soul ;p!!!

7. Greenwich (© photos by Rebecca Duke – Airbnb)

The architectural wonders, the parks, the antiquarian markets and the boats reminding of the south west London maritime history are all the elements that make the charm of Greenwich :)!

8. Rellik…

… or the shop every vintage lover has to go to!!!!

9. Melt (Nothing Hill)

To all my lovely readers, who, just like me, LOVE chocolate, THIS shop is definitely made for you (I mean… for US :p!!!)!

Melt in Nothing Hill

10. Westminster (© photos by Tec Pateja – Airbnb)

If you’ve never been to London before, I really advise you to have a big and clever browse around Westminster! With all its monuments, the Parliament, Big Ben and Buckingham, this district is well and truly THE MUST-DO in London, especially as it constitutes the cultural and political centre of the city!

11. Saint-Pancras (© photos by Rebecca Duke – Airbnb)

Simply stunning! But the best bit of Saint-Pancras is definitely its beautiful and luxurious hotel (you have by the way an overview in the video ;p)!!!

12. The British Museum (© photos by Rebecca Duke & Tec Pateja – Airbnb)

Also a not-to-miss part of London, if only for its astonishing architecture!!!!

13. Kensington (© photos by Sophie Carr & Tec Pateja – Airbnb)

Or the princess district! 😉 With its old buildings, its rustic cheese shops and patisseries, its international embassies, its gardens, palace and museums, Kensington is without the ounce of a doubt the VERY posh district of London!!!

There’s so much more I could write about this city, but there will surely be other posts about my very cherished London ❤ ❤ ❤

Now, I just wanna wish a safe trip to my friends’ little sister and an amazing time there,  in the city I fell in love with…

But with all that, don’t forget to…

Keep holding on to what you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉

Much much LOVE ❤
