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!

PFF-Raybans MirroredLenses-2

RAY BAN – AVIATOR GREEN FLASH LENSES

As my mom would say: “Don’t you have enough already?!“… Nope, never! ^^
I just wanted to share these new bad boys with you. It is my first mirrored pair of sunglasses and I’m obsessed with them.

Comme ma mère me le dit souvent: “N’en as-tu pas assez comme ça?!“. Non, jamais! ^^
Je voulais juste vous montrer ma nouvelle paire de lunettes de soleil. C’est ma première paire avec cet effet miroir et je les aime d’amour.

What do you think? They also come in an orangy-pink color (here).
Qu’en pensez-vous? Elles existent aussi dans la couleur rose-orangé (ici).

¡Ayyy Barcelona!

A video can sometimes show what words can’t explain so here’s a little video of our trip in Barcelona. It was so much fun! Hope you enjoy :) *Thumbs up if you like it!

Les images sont souvent plus communicatives que les mots alors voici une petite video de notre voyage à Barcelone. C’était vraiment top! J’espère que ça vous plaira :) *Cliquez sur Like si vous aimez!

Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Pie-recipe

I am a salty kind of girl. I don’t have a sweet tooth. But sometimes I just crave a specific dessert, especially in the summertime when you just want to indulge in fruits! So the other day, I was craving a strawberry tart and since I never made one before, I decided to just give it a try using this recipe! And it was so yummy! I know, I know, I really need to improve my strawberry organization skills because there’s definitely NOT enough strawberries in this pie now that I look at it and it’s not that well organized either ^^

Je suis plutôt salé que sucré. Mais de temps en temps ça me prend et j’ai vraiment envie d’un dessert, si possible avec de jolis fruits pendant l’été! L’autre jour, j’ai eu l’envie soudaine de manger une tarte aux fraises et comme je n’en avais jamais fait auparavant, j’ai décidé de m’y mettre et d’essayer cette recette! Et elle était dé-li-cieuse! Bon, je vous l’accorde, je suis loin d’être une experte en placement et répartition de fraises – Je ferais mieux la prochaine fois ^^
