The return of sunny days make me want to stay in France. You know how much I love parks, vegetable greenhouses. Yet, the world is badly made, I do not have a green thumb at all ! But I am full of good will, especially when it comes to concocting me a pretty hanging on the garden city. We are fortunate to have a small balcony in our apartment in Paris. But lack of time, I've never been able to arrange to enjoy the summer. This is where the social network Pinterest helps me. It's a great tool to easily create his board inspiration from photos by themes. Walking through the garden section & terrace Pinterest account sign Leroy Merlin, I made my small selection of photos that I liked well by adding them to my favorites. It is super convenient to define the world we want to recreate at home. I poked around in the section terrace Site for finding decorative elements, Materials, moods and colors I want to find on my bacon this summer. I am looking for a romantic atmosphere with garden chairs heart shapes, touches of blue sky to enlarge a small space, games transparency and flowers, full of flowers ! And lots of ivy to create volume at that. Yes, I dream of a bucolic atmosphere with touches of pastel blue colors. If like me you're also in the mood for customizing your little home, there is a contest that should interest you. Of 15 mai au 17 June, teaches Leroy Merlin saves 4 vouchers of € 1000 in the framework of its operation “We're doing everything we like” !

★ In my bag this weekend spring had slipped a precious document. A letter of invitation to slip between the sheets of Trianon Versailles. This is the third time we have the honor of opening our doors to the palace after Majestic Barrière in Cannes here and is and more recently the Plaza Athénée in Paris. Confirmation sent, I have a few days to prepare my necessary. Namely swimsuit, sunglasses and dress special tea time. We climb on our 60 horses under the hood to block the twingo. The great ride lasts only 30 minutes. Time to turn towels, car radio à fond. Super excited to spend a weekend chic green ! The valet of Trianon Versailles immerses you immediately in a world where YOU are part of the stars. Even arriving on my vintage car collection but not. Rather like this is ★
What I Loved
- accessibility of’Hotel Ile de France, you take the Queens Boulevard and is at the right end.
- very close to the location of the park of Versailles (200 meters away)
- the brightness of the bathroom, the heated soil, the Mosaïque, the grand balcon
- the pool where you can really swim laps, the patio where you can sunbathe
- the feeling of sleeping in a castle
- breakfast served in a bright room overlooking the park where the sparkling chandeliers refer sunlight
- the servers attentive but not stuffy
- breakfast at the height of luxury palace with two choices of omelets with yellow or white (I did not even know that it was done)
Comment j'ai mon organize week-end
- we took our bikes in the car to enjoy the estate of Marie Antoinette (I must speak to you soon sooooo hamlet of the Queen, reconstitution of an Austrian village of his time, right next to the hotel as I have A-DO-RE !! A good ride two-country bucolico hours.)
- Saturday night towards the city center 15 minutes from walking through the park of Versailles to enjoy the sunset (magic magic) for dinner in a restaurant without pretense. We get lost in the streets of downtown realizing that there is nothing, Versailles that it really is death in death even on a Saturday night. And there, the hazardous exposure to a street corner. Pretty small terraces, not bad for restoration (Brittany, un thai, semi gastro) of music. In short it moves ! Phew. It is in the rue Ducis you will find your happiness. What a pleasure to dine on the terrace without being the one on the other (Pay your life Paris) ! After extensive discussion, I yielded to the wishes of Mr., was the restaurant “Beef trendy”. Very good passing.
- Sunday morning (Finally, instead of 12 to 14h – we were offered a check-out at 15h) dip in the spa pool Guerlain, puis bronzing express
- Sunday afternoon it was cycling through the castle to finish with artisanal ice by asking to cool along the Grand Canal (the best perfume : rhum raisin)
Back from Versailles, see the defense, it's a little glimpse as New York, ok the loin. More on Trianon Palace Versailles.

It's a little my look every day since my return from Thailand. The combination of these three basic outfit with touches of color. Coral, flesh and emerald. I had fallen in love with this tricolor satchel, a market in Chiang Mai, between two stands of Thai snacks. Perfectly with this pair of sandals that I bought a few days earlier. An association that gives pep to look casual weekend ! To structure my gray t-shirt became too large, I made a small noeux I then went inside. I like the effect it gives, it closer to the body to look better right away. I bought full of accessories like these extensions with clips for fun from time to time change the look. I wanted for a little while wavy extensions to create new hairstyles. And why not retro pinup ! :-)

This is the story of an outfit that was the basis summer. Avec pants a certain Colors. But mostly rolled with a pair of peep toe retro and my new white shirt tied. Except that here, en ce 1er mai à Paris, the weather was changing too, with risk of showers. But as I too want to wear these jeans, I took the first jacket to get into with a combination I had never tested : blue monochrome. And I was surprised to realize that this marriage was quite nice. As a, I put my belt western brown boots go with my everyday story to define the colors. Un look Urbain and sums. Without falling into the attitude Michette. Indeed, this is the first time I wear colored pants, I must tell you how I started. I already knew that I wanted a light color. It was a good start. Then I expected to find the cut and material that matches my morphology. After several tests in stores, I was finally persuaded by a casual style, the radius of the same name from Herbert and Maurice. Cotton jeans with a little Strecht a straight cut, fairly close to the body without being tight and wide enough to roll down so 60′ summer with a pair of heels. This, this was my inspiration for fashion week in a gray Paris.
Have you already tested the shades of blue ?

The holidays often mean jet lag. Return travel, must readjust to the time zone. But stand at odds with the usual pace can better appreciate the beauty of everyday life. Since this morning there, from my apartment in Paris, I witness the spectacle of sunrise.
Ce week-end we went toward mop Seals, to 30 minute drive from Paris. One area that has not been too yet the advantages of a large park. A grand canal, water games, all imagined in the style of French park. Climbing above the heights of the castle, kiosk relaxation. A large terrace invites you to take the time. The ideal time for a delicious tea time, I suggest you try the pancake apricot jam nuts. From this terrace, perspective on the park is just sublime. Expected to return to cycling this summer. The green corridor South of Paris 14 km can reach the area from Sceaux Paris. The opportunity to highlight my folding bike Tilt. :-)
