Hairstyle

This weekend my friend and I tried the dry bar and it was so much fun!! So for the ones who don’t know what is the dry bar, it’s a hair dresser who washes and dried your hair, no cut! You can also choose a braid, a bun or any hairstyle, straight or curl it’s a complete service. You can get different types of curl, everything is shown in the catalogue. For 45$ you got a shampoo, a beautiful hair style and a glass of champagne (whatever drink you want but champagne is my favorite) We loved to spend time there with my friend and we definitely will do it again! My hair is very straight and thick, so it’s very hard for me to curl it. I have to say, my hairdresser did a wonderful job! Ce week-end ma pote et moi on a testé le “dry bar” et on a vraiment adoré! Qu’est-ce que le dry bar exactement !? C’est un salon de coiffure où l’on ne coupe pas les cheveux. Le menu est …

Chicago

24 hours in Chicago

For me Chicago is famous for three things, first the Cloud Gate (nicknamed « the Bean », The Chicago Bulls (basketball team) and the Deep Disch Pizza (calorie killer). We were lucky enough to do the three plus some more cool stuff. The « Windy city » is very charming and so far my third favorite city in the United States, after my bae NYC et Miami of course! So the first night we went to an amazing basketball game in the gigantic United Center, beers, hot dog, crazy fans. It was like in a movie but for real and of course because we were there, the Bulls won. Saturday after an insane breakfast, we  visited Millennium Park, walked in the city, Navy Pier and had a dinner at Giordano’s Deep dish Pizza. We ended the day with the Willis Tower (14th-tallest building in the world) and his amazing sunset. At night we went out to kick some Chicago nightclub and rooftop!! This trip was a very short one, but we filled up our bucket list so I guess it was …

Fifth Step ”Napoli”

Wow Naples, where the driveway became a complete mess, I am not kidding better to be careful and a good driver. Naples is really typical like you expect the Italian city to be with sheets across two balconies, small streets, restaurants and bars. But this city is really messy, dirty and expensive, to be honest, it was not my favorite even if we had such a great moments there. Naples is really good as soon as you get out of the city, actually we just spent few hours in the town to visit a little bit and have dinner, for us it was enough. My favorite part was 100 per cent Capri, this Island is so gorgeous, the architecture, the flowers, the shops, restaurants everything is perfect there. I was falling in love while I was walking in the street. We visited another Island, Ischia, was really pretty too (Capri better), we went for a tiny hike to Vesuve, was really cool and the view there was something else!! We also drove to Procida, is …

Fourth Step ”Roma”

If you go to Rome in the summer I really suggest you to take a hotel with pool, it was our best place after our crazy day in the city! There is so much to see and so many tourists at the same time, I remember hours waiting by 95F for a visit. Rome is a pretty city with an incredible history, we visited the Vatican and went all the way up to Saint Peter’s basilica (from 1506) where the view is amazing. We also visited Castel Sant’angelo, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Piazza dI Spagna, Foro Romano, Piazza Venezia and Piazza del Populo. Of course we did Colosseum was one of the most important things to do in Roma because it’s so old (70–80 AD) and still beautiful. You should definitely take the audio guide while you visit, it’s not one of the most fun, but it helps a lot to understand if you (like me) don’t know the entire story about the Colosseum. My big disappointment of Rome was Trevi Fountain, not because it is …

Third Step ”Firenze”

My favorite Italian city, I really fell in love there, our hotel was on top of the city with an amazing view on it. No car needed during the 3 days we just walked all the way down and up (excellent worked out on our butts). We visited, the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio, Galleria dell’Accademia, Boboli Gardens and the Uffizi Gallery. The entire city is so charming and pretty you just have to walk in the street and enjoy the moment. I also recommend to try the special meal ‘’Fiorentina’’  it’s just a huge piece of beef but very delicious! Mon amour d’Italie, c’est inexplicable à quel point je suis tombée amoureuse de Florence . Notre hôtel était tout en haut de la ville, on avait plus qu’ à descendre une centaine de marches (et travailler nos fesses) pour accéder au centre-ville. Pour moi la voiture n’est pas indispensable (contrairement à l’anti-moustique, surtout l’été). On a visité le Duomo, le Palazzo Vecchio, le Ponte Vecchio, la Galeria del Accademia, le jardin de Boboli et la Galeria …
