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…. 😘

Let me take you to the south of France…

Mistral Gagnant – by Renaud ♪

Not that I come from the very south of France (I actually quite live in the middle :p!), but I’ve spent so many summer holidays over there. To be honest, I think we’ve always spent our summer holidays in the south but since the family kinda split, those times are well and truly over; and today I simply wanted to share with you, my lovely ones, a few sweet memories I had kept inside of me all this time :).

The idea of that post simply came last weekend, as it was the Monaco Grand Prix, and I know that some friends of mine were very lucky to be there enjoying themselves and the beautiful sun of this place! Furthermore, summer holidays are closer and closer, and I just thought some of you might want to spend a few days in France… and what better place than the south of this lovely country to have the loveliest and most memorable summer holidays ever?!

Therefore, I wanted to write a little something about my favourite places in the south of France, which obviously includes Monaco (who isn’t sensitive to its charm?!).

To accompany you, I picked one of my favourite French songs… Mistral Gagnant, by Renaud! Let yourself be guided by this pure French voice and tormented soul…

I hope you’ll enjoy this little tour through my must-go places 😉 !

The first place of the south of France I really want to talk about is called Les Baux de Provence. It’s simply my favourite place to go to, when I’m on holiday in the south :)! I am totally in love with the village and the old-looking streets (that are so typical of the south of France), but most of all, I am completely thrilled when I find myself in front of this yummy little shop, La Cure Gourmande… **

I think my lovely Flavie Peticoeur would love that Teeshirt :pgourmandises

The second place I’m gonna mention is Cassis, a very posh town of the south of France, which simply gives you goosebumps when you’re there, as everything simply seems so unreal! It’s a kind of little paradise on Earth 🙂 …

My third favourite place of the south of my lovely homeland (see?! I still love France ^^) is, of course, Monaco! There are so many reasons why I love that area… The royal family (always very appealing when you’re a little girl, dreaming of becoming a princess ^^), the always beautiful bright sun, and the so perfect everything actually… But when I go to Monaco, there ‘s a place I quite fancy going to; and this place is the gorgeous botanical garden…

My second-to-last place I want to bring up is the place that will never go out of fashion… I’m obviously talking about the mythical Saint-Tropez! And to honour this very special place, I couldn’t prevent myself from changing the music and turn Do you Saint-Tropez by Brigitte Bardot on! This place simply represents the south of France ‘par excellence’! Everything is just so very pretty… I truly love it 🙂 and I quite look forward to going back there!!! I couldn’t lay my hands on my own photos, as it’s a huge mess on my computer, so here are a few pictures, taken by Margot from YouMAKEfashion!

And to conclude this post, I only want to share some photos of a hotel we stayed at a few years ago with my family, and where everything was just stunning! This hotel, that you may also know, is called Le Mas Candille. It was kind of  a Suite life for a couple of days… :p

Here it is my lovelies! I hope you enjoyed your little tour in the south of France with me, by this very sunny Saturday afternoon ^^ (Yay! the sun’s finally back!!!)

I write to you very soon! But meanwhile…

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