Calvi on the rocks

It was only 2 weeks ago, but it feels like it was ages already!! Just a quick post to share with you my amazing holiday with my bestie. When I arrived to Calvi I was very tired, but when I left it, I was completely exhausted! On Sunday 8th July, I took the 6am flight from London straight to Bastia. Once there I took a bus to Calvi, I met my best friend there and I’m just telling you it was so much fun!! So here we go: Calvi on the rocks Day 1  We first went to Octopussy but after a drink we both decided it was a bit too young for us so we moved to In casa. A lot of brands were there and we won a lot of goodies (tote bags, beach towel, cap, sunscreen and beauty creams… We came back home right before sunset, had dinner and we both agreed to go get some sleep instead of going out (this is when you realized you are not 20 anymore!!) Calvi on …

What to do in Dubai

My mandatory stop while in Dubai was the mall of course!!! We visited two of the most famous ones, Emirates Mall, the one with the very well known indoor skiing, we spent our evening there and I obviously spent a lot of money at Sephora but it’s not my fault if we don’t have one in London! We also had the biggest meal of our vacation at Cheesecake factory and for the first time of my life I was too full to try a cheesecake… We also went to Dubai mall which is a really huge one, they got an aquarium, an ice rink and a even souk. The mall it is in the front of the Burj Khalifa, every 30 minutes you can watch the fountain show front of it. The best place to see the show it is at the top level of the Apple store. If you are going, make sure to go early because it’s a very crowded spot. Lorsque vous visitez Dubaï, vous êtes obligé de passer par un Centre Commercial! …

Where to swim in Dubai

Dubai is one of the best cities to hit some private beaches. We wanted to go to the Jumeirah beach hotel but it was too expensive for us, so we went to Cove beach instead and it was very nice. Beautiful view of the Burj Al Arab, big bed and cocktails. We spent the day between the pool and the beach, we also watched the most amazing sunset. It was the best way to start our holiday. Dubaï, c’est le paradis. Surtout celui des plages privées, avec Coni nous avions décidé d’aller au Jumeirah Beach Hôtel le premier jour, mais arrivées sur place nous nous sommes rendues compte que l’entrée était beaucoup trop chère!  Nous avons donc opté pour Cove Beach et c’était vraiment parfait! Avec, en prime, une vue incroyable sur le Burj Al Arab.  Nous avons passés toute la journée dans ce bel endroit, entre piscine et plage, c’était juste la meilleure façon de commencer nos vacances. Another very cool spot is the 0-gravity pool at JBR, it was my favorite, the pool …

What to do in Amsterdam

I really loved my few days spent in Amsterdam, the weather wasn’t great at all but I got used to it since I am living in London after all. I was very glad, I brought my umbrella and rainy boots with me, it was completely needed. Amsterdam is a really cute city everything is on the water so we cross about 15 different bridges a day and obviously we took pictures in all of them! We did all the tourists stuffs like the flowers markets, the red-light districts and the boat tour which was my favorite part. J’ai vraiment adorée mon week-end à Amsterdam même si le beau temps n’étais pas vraiment au rendez-vous, mais bon je commence à m’habituer à la pluie depuis que je vis à Londres donc ça ne m’a pas déprimé de devoir prendre mon parapluie avec moi pendant 3 jours. Ce que j’ai vraiment préféré, à part les brunch, c’est l’architecture de la ville, on a dû traverser un peu près 15 ponts par jour et bien évidemment on a pris des photos sur chacun d’entre eux! J’ai bien sûr fait toutes les activités de touriste, comme le marche aux fleurs, le red light districts et une visite en bateau que j’ai absolument adoré. Our 100 shots over the …

Pinknic day

Yesterday we went to the Pinknic at Governors Island as you can understand it was a pink picnic. The dress code was white and pink, and the main topic of the afternoon was drinking rosé. The event privatize half of the island, DJs, snacks and bar was there with a lot of entertainment. The VIP access even got a pool I was so jealous about them. Next time I’ll be a VIP too. Anyway it was great the sun was burning hot, the frozé was delicious and the music good. The only bad point was the people, too much people, we have to wait to do everything, grab a drink, go to the bathroom, take picture it was a line everywhere and it was pretty boring. But at least we went to the event because I heard they cancelled yesterday’s one because of the storm so I’m feeling kind of lucky to participate at this one. I hope you enjoy this post, I am starting to do a blog as well, not really sure how …
