Hello 2017! The last few weeks were very busy: basically a lot of paperwork to do before loads of projects coming up! When my first semester came to an end, all I needed was to get some time far away from Paris. Guess what? Tickets to fly to Thailand were booked a week ahead! No no, this is not craziness, just pragmatism! Life is too short to make plans, you never know what happens next. So, here is the situation. I spent two weeks in the land of smiles, split into one week in Bangkok and the other one in Koh Samui. Although I was supposed to visit other islands but you know, things don’t always work the way you want.
Dorothée Contour, 34 years old, is at the head of JEM Jewellery Ethically Minded, a French jewellery house at the crossroads of ethical commitment, minimalism and poetical philosophy. This collective project gathers several talents and embraces a lucid jewellery. Mixing the immaterial that is transparency and consciousness with the tangible and the preciousness of the materials, the aesthetics of the pieces translate into a timeless elegance. She is convinced that tomorrow’s business model must be embellished by a sustainable environment through authenticity and sincerity.
In Denmark, a study shows that almost 80% of the inhabitants trust others when the global average reaches 25%. This caught my attention and I wanted to know more about it. I briefly visited the city a few months ago and really liked the atmosphere, the way people live and the city itself. When back to Paris, I had one thing in my mind: to go back and learn more about the culture.
Charles Pétillon is a French photographer whose poetic work is known across the world. He invaded Covent Garden last year with an installation of 100,000 white balloons – his favorite material to work with because of its simplicity, accessiblity and universality.
What a good idea to go back to Copenhagen at the end of the year! Cold and windy, facing the weather, in the end, all you need is a warm and cozy place to rest at night. Located in the Latin Quarter of the Danish capital, the SP34 hotel opened in April 2014 and has its doors right opened to welcome you within an original Scandinavian haven.
We, as Parisians, love spending time in the cafés. Whether to meet some friends, to read, to type on our keyboards, or simply to stalk the passersby – yes we do that. A freshly pressed juice during warm days or a hot chocolate when it’s colder, “un café, s’il vous plaît !” classic. So French. Goodbye terraces, let’s welcome the new versions of coffee shops! Disruptive and hybrid, they give a fresh breath to the city of light! What are we looking for at first? Good products, nice deco, tasty food? Ok that’s instagrammable, go!
What does the word colors mean to you? What comes to your mind when you see colors?
Sunday. 12pm. Brunch time. Are you hungry? Meet me at L’Alcazar!
As seen from my previous articles about several hotels, I firstly spent a few days in Milano then went to Firenze! I haven’t been traveling that much lately but I’m definitely working on the travel section of the blog! It also seems like there’s a lot of Italy around here too… stay tuned, I’m on it, fun things are coming soon. For now, let’s see what we spotted in both cities.
