Rendezvous avec Cartier
At the beginning of this year, I asked myself whether I wanted to go to the upcoming season’s Paris Fashion Week or not. To be completely honest with you, I wanted to (of course I did) but the thing is that I didn’t really want to go through all this process of organizing everything all over again.

Believe it or not, the organizational part before the PFW is a big production. Flight tickets, hotel arrangements, presentations and shows, plus emails, emails, emails…So I was kind of skeptical and couldn’t make up my mind. For that reason, I called my friend Polina in Athens to see what her intentions were, since we spent the previous fashion week in Paris together, and we could make a decision this time together again. Together, it’s always better.

All this lasted until the moment an email from MAISON CARTIER hit my inbox. It made me change my mind immediately! Wouldn’t you change yours as well? I was kind of flattered, to say the least, that I was invited by such a huge renowned French Jeweler and Watchmaker to visit Paris for the Press day. So I felt it was meant to be and hopped on a flight to Paris on the first of March. I had a Rendezvous avec Cartier. How cool! But I didn’t stay for just one day. I stayed the whole week, but more of that on next photo blog posts.

The event took place at Hotel Pourtales. During the Rendezvous avec Cartier, I didn’t take many photos, nor had someone with me to take photos of me or for me (which could have been an option as I noticed from watching the others). My focus was rather on the collections, to see and try out some of my favourite pieces (of which you can see here), the Cactus de Cartier for instance, which reminds me of my days in Morocco, and meeting new people.

And I know, I know before you say anything…I should have published my photos from the event much earlier, but don’t be harsh with me : ) The last months I’ve been traveling non stop, and I finally found some time right now to deal with all the editorial content from Paris before I leave for the next travel adventure. I hope I will finish my work before Sunday night, because the next departure is on Monday morning.

Adèle et Jules, our boutique hotel in Paris

Since I have visited Paris several times already, I had the pleasure of staying in many hotels and in many different districts around the city. This time, I had the chance to stay at the Adèle et Jules, a boutique hotel situated in the 9th arrondissement in Paris. Because I have been traveling so often lately, I have become very picky when it comes to accomodation. With that being said, I was happy to discover one more gem in Paris, that I could comfortably call, my home away from home.

During my stay at the charming Adèle et Jules boutique hotel, I paid attention to each and every detail of the hotel. What I noticed (and loved as well) was their attention to the details. The colors matched with each other, the quality of the mattress, of the bathrobe and of all the textiles that were selected for use in this charming Parisian boutique hotel. I took some pictures of the interior design so that you can have a look. I hope this can be a helpful tip for your next visit to Paris.

Apart from the interion design, I also loved that there was an ATM right next to the corner of the hotel (important when in need of cash). In addition, the hotel is only a few minutes walk from the metro station Grands Boulevards.

Generally, I do love small boutique hotels. The private atmosphere, the laid-back feel, and the peace that they can offer you are experiences to be enjoyed. And the Adèle et Jules hotel is for those who are looking for a new, modern, clean and centrally situated boutique hotel in a nice neighborhood of Paris and for those who love clever and positive decor. I will definitely come back to Adèle et Jules, our boutique hotel in Paris. ♥

Outfit: Oui / shoes: Humanic

It feels like Paris and I have become much closer over the years. Just this past year alone, I have visited the city three times. If you want to see the articles and photos from my previous visits, you can find them here and my photos from my visit during the summer here.

I wouldn’t miss out on Fall in Paris. So, right after I came back from Marrakesh, I packed another luggage and left for Paris for one week. In this blog post, I’m publishing some photos of the hotel we stayed in and some from the photography stroll at Jardin du Luxembourg on a Saturday morning, so that you get an idea of how Paris looks like in the Fall. I have to admit, I was quite lucky with the weather. It rained a little bit during the first two days, but after that the weather was perfect and not cold at all. One trench coat (or something light) was all I needed, and I was off to take some pictures around the city.

There are still things that I haven’t done and places that I haven’t visited in the city, so I hope for one more trip to Paris before this year ends for good. If you also would love to visit Paris, have a look at the travel competition I organized with Atout France and Air France here. Subscribe to the newsletter of Atout France and win two plane tickets to Paris. I wish you good luck.

Watch: “Rebel Spirit” Thomas Sabo – White blazer/grey coat: Oui

Last week while in Paris, I gave myself a photography assignment: to photograph my new Thomas Sabo watch everywhere in the city. Because if not in Paris, then where else? Paris gave me so much inspiration and all those fall colours made me want to shoot non-stop all around the city. The doors, the Parisian bistros, the Seine, the parks…pretty much everything was an ideal background for what I had in my mind. Of course, not all the photos ended up in this blog post. I was strict with my final selections, as always, and only published my favorite shots. I hope you like them because honestly speaking, I do love them; both the photos and my new Thomas Sabo watch. This “rebel spirit” watch from Thomas Sabo is actually a watch for men. But I selected it because I prefer the larger size watches over the smaller ones. Plus, you can also share it with your boyfriend.

Let me tell you a few words on how and where my photo assignment was executed. The first two photos were taken during my visit to Jardin du Luxembourg. The ones that follow were taken at the Pont Marie on our way to the cafe Le Saint Regis. The third photo session was held at the table of the Cafe in front of a variety of French cheese and white wine. And the last two photos were taken at the garden of my favourite restaurant, Ralph Lauren, in Saint Germain. And of course, I need to thank my friend Edisa for the support. I couldn’t have done all this without her.♥
