All right, so November is probably one of the most depressing month ever. The days are super short, it’s getting cold and it rains way too much. Thank god for hot chocolate, right? But since I can’t only drink hot chocolate to make me forget about the oh so sad weather (who am I kidding? Of course I can but I’m an adult and I decide not to), I figured that the next best thing would be to remember some of the great trips I took to sunny places. And lately, I’ve been thinking to one of my favorite trips ever: Palo Alto. I don’t know if you know this, but I’m a nerd. So needless to say that I was super excited when I got the chance to go there and visit Stanford University. Now let’s walk down memory lane….
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]
In September 2016, I had the chance to travel to Asia for the first time. I went to Beijing, China. And it was quite a journey! I visited the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, and the Great Wall of China. Let’s relive this trip in pictures…
