It's been a long time that I wanted to share my favourite spots in Paris with you. This will be the start of a new series, where I will regularly post some of my favourite spots, be it coffee places, restaurants or just nice locations to discover in the city. Today I'll start off the series with with my favourite places to have a coffee in the Marais.
I'm truly honoured and excited to present you my new collaboration with Van Cleef & Arpels. A Paris based jewelry brand, famous for its unique designs, that was founded in 1906. Their historical shop in the center of the city, at 22 Place Vendôme, is almost a must visit place if you love high jewelry. When I got a proposition to collaborate with them I felt immensely flattered! They reason why they chose me, was that they wanted the real girls to represent the new collection named Frivole. Obviously, I did not think twice and I accepted. Since then my Cinderella story started.
A few weeks ago I went to Milano to attend my first ever Milan Design Week. For those who don't not know the concept, it's like fashion week, but instead of clothes, brands present furniture and objects in their respective showrooms. Some of these objects easily could be considered pieces of art. Milan Design Week is an annual event, and it's world's largest one of it's kind. It's an amazing opportunity to discover young artists and getting inspired by all the latest creations in furniture and design.
Last weekend, during one of those rare sunny days in Paris, I decided to have a walk through the city with my boyfriend. Naturally I went to one of my favourite spots in Paris: Ile Saint Louis. I love crossing the bridge from Île de la Cité, finding a sunny place, sitting down along the Seine and contemplating the back view of the magnificent Notre Dame. Usually, I always shoot pictures the way you can see the cathedral behind me, but this time I decided to show you Ile Saint Louis in the background: cream white colour old houses, where you can find some really beautiful apartments, very old shops and some restaurants.
