2018: What I'll Care About This Year

Is this another post on new year resolutions? Well yes and no. I woke up on 1st January just like every other day of my life without even giving them a thought - I'm not into the debate as to whether they're useful or not - but then, a couple of things popped in my mind a few days ago.

Why You Should Visit the Dior Exhibition Before It's Too Late

So I don't know if you know that a Dior exhibition is taking place in Paris at the moment, but what is absolutely certain is that the Musée des Arts Décoratifs is the one place you need to pop by if you're visiting the French capital before 7th January 2018.

Breakfast at Montmartre

On a fine Parisian day in the 18th arrondissement last month, Ophélie and I decided to treat ourselves with a couple of photos and an astounding view over Paris from the Sacré-Coeur in Montmartre. It didn't really feel like autumn - the sun was shining and the air way too warm for October. In fact the only thing that was reminiscent of a chillier time was my outfit.

Why is Paris so fascinating?

Paris is an exceptional city who benefits from a great reputation among bloggers and lovers alike. Although just like every capital in the world it is not perfect and has flaws, the City of Lights gives off an irresistible something that makes you fall in love with it. Maybe it's part of my French pride to rave about Paris but it didn't take me long to realise I am just one in a million: until recently, it had been the most visited city in the world. The evidence being that flocking together under the Eiffel Tower has lost a little bit of its splendor, but anyway. What happened in November 2015 impeded people to live normally at first but as nothing stands for freedom more than Paris, the city has found a way to continue doing what it does best: drinking wine at a terrace, talking for hours with a coffee in hand and loving, of course.

Two Days in Naples

I’ve been living in Rome for three months now, and because there is so much to see in the eternal city I hadn’t taken the time to book myself a weekend away to another Italian city. Therefore I decided to go on a trip to Naples with a friend of mine who had not visited the city yet. We literally did it last minute: we booked a room two days before the departure and bought train tickets the day before we left. And because it is southern Italy, we didn’t even spend a lot of money (a return ticket from Rome on the fastest train cost us 35€). Obviously although we hadn’t planned anything or spent any time looking for what to do there, we were incredibly excited to find out what Naples had to offer. It turned out we got plenty of information on where to go to enjoy delicious Neapolitan food thanks to acquaintances of ours on our way…

La vie en Rouje

As you’ve probably noticed on my Instagram or my previous post on influencers (here), I’ve been smitten by Jeanne Damas for more than a year now. Her fashion sense and lifestyle in Paris have became an obvious stream of inspiration to me. There is just something about them - maybe the fact than she seems able to recreate a Paris from the 70s than doesn’t exist anymore, enhancing the idea of a perfect city exuding la joie de vivre à la française, wine and trips to Bretagne included - I can’t help but feeling drawn to what she wants to share through Rouje, the brand she launched not so long ago. Ah yes. Her perfectly-tousled bed hair and insouciant sophistication.

So when a friend of mine let me know there was a collaboration project going on between her and My Little Box (officially confirmed on her Instagram story) I didn’t think about it twice, also because I had already experienced two boxes I was happy about (you can read about what I thought of them and learn more about the concept of the boxes here and here). I ordered the September special edition as a flash. As September is also my birthday month, the box came as a gift to myself and fortunately I was very satisfied with the content of it.
