Brittany #1: The AGAPA hotel in Perros-Guirec & its surroundings…

DSC_0013

Hey my sweeties! I’m finally back from holidays and ready to start writing on a more regular basis again! So as you’ve probably noticed it through my Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts, I’m freshly coming back from Perros-Guirec, a stunning place in Brittany!

I’ve had such a nice time there with my daddy and a good old friend of mine! When we got there, after a long (VERY LONG) 8 hour drive, we could finally enjoy a tea at the AGAPA hotel (where we stayed those few days) and the amazing view from the bar and then from our room!

And trust me, it was more than delightful to wake up every morning facing the ocean and leaving our awaking souls to the open seas!

Concerning our first dinner in Brittany, we had it at the restaurant of the hotel, which was (let’s say it) a pure wonder for our quite demanding French taste buds ;p! Letting you enjoy what I tried on this first night with your little greedy eyes … I shall see  you here tomorrow to discover Brittany #2…

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

xoxo

My weekend in Haute-Savoie: DAY #2 – leaving Talloires & heading to Annecy

DSC_0754

Hey there my lovely ones! I hope you’re well today and ready to go through LOTS of photos ’cause here I am, back with the second post about my weekend in Haute-Savoie!

On the saturday, we left Talloires quite early in the morning after a very yummy & healthy breakfast and after taking some  pictures next to the lake… before we could head to the lovely town that is Annecy!

Annecy is so amazingly pretty with all its flowers and its at-the-same-time German, French and Italian influences (well, that’s quite logical when you know you’re not far from Switzerland :p!)! The old part of the town is such a lovely place to spend a weekend and do some traditional or also original shopping! I can only & highly recommend this place!!!!

With this, I wish you a lovely and (you’ll see) pretty flowery wander through the port of Talloires and then through Annecy… without forgetting to…

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

Financiers & red fruits skewers

Yoop! Here I am today with a brand new and very yummy recipe! I hope everybody had a happy national day in France and that everyone had a lovely weekend!!!! I was thinking the other day (yes! it happens sometimes :p!!!) and I realised it’s been ages since I last wrote a cookery post on the blog (the 14th of July cupcakes excluded of course!!!), so I thought it was more than ever time to do so! I mean… Summer is here and most of us like cooking and making delicious little things for these very hot summery days so…

Today’s recipe is extracted from the last MY LITTLE WORLD magazine and is entitled Financiers & red fruits skewers! This title and the photo below are greatly enough to make my mouth water :p!!!

DSC_0580

Enough babbling! Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients (for 12 skewers)

  • 100g of egg white
  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 40g of ground almonds
  • 40g of flour
  • 50g of butter
  • 12 raspberries
  • 12 strawberries
  • 48 blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C.
  2. Make the butter melt.
  3. Mix the icing sugar, the flour and the ground almonds in a bowl. Then, add the cooled butter and the egg whites.
  4. Mix it all well!
  5. Pour the dough in muffin pastry tins and put them in the oven for about 10 minutes. The financiers must be quite brown!
  6. Let it cool.
  7. Make the skewers the way you want or getting inspiration from the picture above ;)!!

Now, put your aprons on and let’s bake these SO very yummy summer skewers :)!!!!

With this, my budding pastry chef, and apart from enjoying & savouring these financiers,

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

Red fruited kisses ❤

Beauty Tips by MY LITTLE WORLD * HOLIDAY

2 little beauty tips today! Look how lucky you are ;p!!!!

First and foremost, let me introduce you to a kind of magic potion… a very freshening rose-and-lemon-based body water! The roses will help hydrate and tone your skin up, while the lemon will purify it!

DSC_0578

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon (and one squeezer)
  • Roses petals (of 3 roses)
  • 1 little spray

Directions

  1. Boil some water and put the previously-washed roses petals in it. Cover the whole thing and let it brew for about 10 minutes.
  2.  Meanwhile, squeeze the lemon.
  3. Dry the roses petals. When the mixture is cooled down, add two teaspoons of lemon juice.
  4. Put it in a spray and it’s ready to be used ;)!!!! 

 

The second beauty tips of this month MY LITTLE WORLD is another very useful potion that is a repairing potion for sunburns! I personally think THIS is the must-make and must-have of the summer! So here’s the recipe, my beauts!!!

DSC_0579

Ingredients

  • Green tea
  • 1 fresh tomato 
  • Cottons 

Directions

  1. Let the green tea brew for about 20 minutes so that the water contains enough healing molecules (polyphenol). 
  2. Peel a tomato and blend it. The tomato contains the necessary vitamins to easily regenerate the skin.
  3. When the two mixtures are cold enough, soak the cottons and leave them on your sunburns for about 30 minutes. (You can start this process over and over again! Pretty cool, uh?!)

 

Here they are, my lovelies! The 2 great beauty tips of this month MY LITTLE WORLD magazine!

With this, you’re ready to serenely face the summer 😉

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