Hello Summer!

heartyellow(smallblog) Now Playing: 5 Seconds of Summer・She Looks So Good

I flew to Los Angeles for a few days last month. I went to Malibu, Santa Monica, Venice, Joshua Tree, Palm Springs and around and about West Hollywood. I recently bought a GoPro so I decided to try it out and film this short trip with it. Hope you enjoy! x

What a better way to enjoy the summer than walking bare feet on the beach, feeling the hot sand between your toes; wearing your brightest swimsuit once you have somewhat of a tan; eating delicious ice creams (this one is from pop bar in Manhattan. Absolute must try!); eating fresh lobster rolls and sipping on a margarita by the marina. Gotta love the summertime! What have you been up to this summer? x

Cape May

I love to get in the car and simply drive away sometimes. Last Saturday was the perfect day as it felt like a beautiful Spring day in New York. We decided to head south to Cape May. We got lunch at The Lobster House by the Marina, walked around town and along the beach, saw the lighthouse and ended the day on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Such a lovely day!

J’adore prendre la voiture et juste partir à l’aventure parfois. Samedi dernier était la journée parfaite avec ce beau soleil de début de printemps. Nous avons décidé de partir vers le sud de New York, à Cape May au bord de l’eau. Nous nous sommes arrêté manger à The Lobster House sur le port, baladé en ville et sur la plage, vu le fard et avons fini la journée sur la promenade d’Atlantic City. Une belle journée!

Envoyez moi les liens vers vos préférés!

California Love

California Porn

Every time I think about summer, I think about California: its palm trees, beautiful beaches and skilled surfers. They all make me want to teleport! But since I haven’t figured that out just yet, I just go on Pinterest and keep dreaming ^^ Do you have a Pinterest? Why do you use it for?

Quand je pense à l’été, je pense à la Californie: ses palmiers, ses plages magnifiques et ses surfeurs expérimentés. Tout ça me donne envie de me téléporter! Mais comme je ne maitrise pas encore parfaitement cette technique, je vais donc sur Pinterest pour continuer de rêver ^^ Avez-vous un Pinterest? Pour quoi l’utilisez-vous?

Summer Reads

Summer Reads2

Let the Summer beach-reading season begin! Those three first books look like total page-turners to get completely lost in and of course, if you haven’t read the fourth one yet, The Great Gatsby, this is an absolute must-read!

<3 Grace, A Memoir by Grace Coddington
Beautiful. Willful. Charming. Blunt. Grace Coddington’s extraordinary talent and fierce dedication to her work as creative director of Vogue have made her an international icon. Known through much of her career only to those behind the scenes, she might have remained fashion’s best-kept secret were it not for The September Issue. [more]

<3 Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
Marriage can be a real killer. On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. [more]

<3 What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
Alice is twenty-nine. She is whimsical, optimistic and adores sleep, chocolate, her new house and her wonderful husband Nick. But now Alice has slipped and hit her head in her step-aerobics class and everyone’s telling her she’s misplaced the last ten years of her life. [more]

<3 The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby’s youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age. [more]

What will you be reading this Summer?

Vous pouvez aussi les commander sur le site Amazon France. Mis à part, Gatsby Le Magnifique, je ne suis pas certaine que les autres livres soient déjà traduits en français.

Vous allez lire quoi vous cet été?

High Tide

High Tide Inspiration Board

It’s been raining quite non stop in Paris lately and all I’ve been thinking about is the ocean: clear turquoise water, hot white sand, cute little sandals and my fabulous new pair of Roberto Cavalli sunglasses. Summer, come to me!

Mood board inspired by Make My Lemonade and my Pinterest.

Il pleut non-stop à Paris depuis quelques temps et je ne pense qu’à une chose, l’océan: eaux turquoises, sable blanc, de jolies petites sandales et ma superbe paire de lunettes de soleil Roberto Cavalli. Été, vient à moi!
