Sezane lovers

Coucou Sezane lovers! I am so very happy to announce my partnership with one of my favourite Parisian brands Sezane! Sezane just launched its new Spring 21 Pre- collection!

With the code “BONJOUROSTERREICH”, deliveries will be free of charge, and a lovely surprise will be slipped into your package (valid for everyone who orders from and to Austria until the 7th of March).

Dear Sezane lovers, 100% of the sales of the iconic Will Jacket will be donated to Caritas Lerncafés in Vienna (from February 14th until March 7th). It is a special project for children from families at risk of poverty, often with a migrant background. In the learning cafés, these children receive support from volunteers to do their homework and to learn together. In times of lockdown, these children continue to receive support. Either online or on the telephone from the Lerncafé teams!

More about Sezane’s philanthropic program on their website!

If the first day of June already finds me on a Greek island, this is a sign that this summer is going to be great”. This was one of the thoughts that crossed my mind upon arrival at the airport of Karpathos island.

Even though I grew up in Greece, I never had the chance to visit Karpathos. With my family and friends, we used to always spend summers in Samos, where my mom has a family house there.

I can’t tell you enough how happy I was, when the official Greek Tourism board invited me to join a group of journalists and gave me this chance to finally visit Karpathos island, take some photos and publish them on The Viennese Girl blog.

Things that I truly loved in Karpathos island during my stay
  • everything about the traditional village Olympos.
  • the restaurant Under the tree in Finiki. The owner cooked for us something I will never ever forget in my life. It was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten: Crab Salad!!! To die for!
  • waking up to the seaview from my hotel room every morning.
  • a little bit of “me time” on the last day and discover the island on my own. I looked for green soaps made of olive oil to buy, treated myself twice with iced coffee latte in a cafe called Anoi all day bar in Pigadia (the town of the island) and ate lots of Yogeat Frozen Yogurt.

Afternoon tea at The Peninsula Paris

Afternoon tea at The Peninsula Paris

The first thing that was making me super excited about Paris Fashion Week last March was the Cartier Press Event, and the second thing was the Afternoon tea at The Peninsula Paris.

Oh yes, here on The Viennese Girl blog, we die for little glitter and glamour. Why should we hide it anyway? And Paris has a lot of them to offer, that’s why we also go. Why should we hide it anyway?

The Viennese Girl blog

And all those things together always remind me the reason why I started this blog: to escape the routine, get access to dreamy places, and do things I’ve never done before.

It was raining cats and dogs the moment we stepped in at The Peninsula for our afternoon tea. Perfect timing to be somewhere indoors. Polina and I hunkered down in the armchair and indulged in delicious finger sandwiches and pastries.

While sipping tea and savouring scones served with cream and jams, we took those photos. At the same time, we tried to be as discreet as possible not to disturb other people in Le Lobby, although it was quite difficult to hide our enthusiasm.

I still remember vividly the moment when I arrived in Dubai at the beginning of last November. I took off my black winter coat and I was the happiest. Warm weather always has that impact on me. It just makes me happy!

The Ritz-Carlton Dubai

Upon landing, I was picked up at the airport and driven to The Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Centre where I spent one night and one day, before my next flight to the Maldives.

Everything was perfectly organized from Michelle and Dubai looked familiar to my eyes. Although it has been years since I visited this city for the first time, people have told me that many things have changed since then.

Dubai was actually a stopover on my way to the Maldives. I spend two nights at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Centre before flying to the Maldives , and two nights at The Ritz-Carlton which is located along the Jumeirah Beach during my return trip from the Maldives. It was nice to have the opportunity to stay and check out both hotels.

During my stay in Dubai, although I wanted to go out to see more of the city, I decided not to and preferred to spend the whole time at the The Ritz-Carlton because long flights and changing time zones made me a little bit tired. The pictures that you see in this blog post were all taken in both hotels.

Where to stay in United Arab Emirates

I loved the suite at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Centre with its full sized living room and very comfortable king sized bed. I was lucky enough to be there on a day when they organized a food party in the garden.

In addition to that, having access to an exclusive lounge of the hotel was an extra treat. Before I had to leave to catch my next flight, I stopped by the rooftop terrace and spent some hours gazing at the illuminated skyscrapers.

Regarding my stay at The Ritz-Carlton in the Jumeirah Beach, everything was perfect and I need to thank here Miss Chloé Perrin-Macgaw from the Public Relations & Marketing of The Ritz-Carlton Dubai for the great company, warm welcome and hospitality.

The only thing that I couldn’t stand during my visit in Dubai was the air conditioner. That’s because air conditioner is not common in Vienna, so I am not used to it. However I totally understand that for the residents of Dubai, having air conditioner everywhere is more than necessary.

This is my last blog post for 2016. I wish you all Happy New Year’s Eve.
