First of all, happy holidays 🙂 I hope you’ll spend this time surrounded by friends and family ❤
So, work has been crazy for the past weeks (months?) and I have been really (like, reeeaaallllyyyyyyy) looking forward to having this week off. So much so that I have been planning what to do during this holy moment for some days now. As much as work is my priority, I believe it is extremely important to take some time for yourself from time to time. And that’s what I’m gonna do this week 🙂 Here are some ideas on how to reward yourself this week (or anytime for that matter, because you should!):
I don’t know if you know this (if you follow me on Instagram, you might remember), but about a month ago I went on holiday to Dinard. It is a commune on the Côte d’Émeraude of Brittany (it’s also the name of Iwan Rheon’s first album, by the way). And I totally fell in love with that place. It’s cute. It’s charming, The views are gorgeous. I’m sure that some of you might not agree with me, thinking “what’s the big deal?”; but I absolutely loved it and honestly I can’t wait to go back.
Let’s reminisce about my (too short) trip over there and let me know what you think 🙂
As I explained in a previous post, I went to Morocco for a couple of days in April. I already shared with you pictures from my first day which included a visit of the Jardin Majorelle. Here, you can find the rest of the photos: the Koutoubia Mosque (I didn’t go inside the mosque — but the exterior was still impressive) and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place. I was by myself so I chose not to visit the souks since I’m directionally challenged. However, next time I go, they will definitely be on my to-see list.
For me, the holidays will be in September but I need to escape a little bit – I’m almost counting the days… So, I gathered here my 6 beauty essentials, the 6 products I’ll definitely pack for my holidays. I know it’s early but it’s so exciting to think about your beauty kit, don’t you think? Besides, I’m pretty sure that some of you are leaving sooner than me (a lot of you probably already came back, sorry about that ladies), so maybe you’ll be interested in some ideas for your beauty kit. And if you’re staying at home or if you already went on holidays this summer, I still think this post can be of interest: these beauty essentials are still valid for the summer even if you stay at your place 🙂
In April, I got to spend a couple of days in Marrakech, Morocco. It was a business trip, but I managed to fit in a few sightseeing sessions. I absolutely wanted to see the Majorelle Garden, so that was the first thing I did when I got some free time. I also went to the Koutoubia Mosque and the Jemaa el-Fnaa market place, but that will be for another post 😉
“Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé discovered the Jardin Majorelle in 1966, during their first stay in Marrakech. […] [They] bought [it] in 1980 and saved it from falling victim to a real estate project and becoming a hotel complex. […] Yves Saint Laurent would say he was able to find an unlimited source of inspiration in the Jardin Majorelle, and that he dreamt many times about its unique colours.” [Source: jardinmajorelle.com]
