Paris Mission

This was time for Mom and I to have our family trip to Paris after a few years without going there together. It was such a lovely weather out there! We got on the Euro Star and made our way across the English Channel.

Arriving in Paris, we were super well greeted and headed to Relais Christine for our check in. This cute hotel is located in a quite street but with so much of the St Germaine lifestyle present. Super close to places such as Pont Neuf, Notre Dame Cathedral, Sainte Chapelle and Louvre. Right in the heart of Paris, couldn’t ask for anywhere better situated, right?  

It was a two-days trip only and we had loads of things to do and one mission: To find my mom a mother of the bride dress! As some of you may know, I am getting married at the end of August and the reason behind our little getaway was that we wouldn’t leave without a dress….. It made our voyage even more special!

It wasn’t easy to find something, we went to so many different shops, especially at Saint-Honoré and also at Reciproque (high luxury items stores, but highly recommend to whom is looking for bags and luxury accessories). First dress-hunting day was coming to an end, the stores were getting closed, and we didn’t manage to find our treasure. After such a long day, it was time to enjoy a daughter-mom’s moment and chill for a bit. First place that came into my mind: Peninsula Hotel.

We started off by having a drink at the amazing Hotel’s rooftop. It was such a remarkable moment, sipping some rose champagne and watching the sunset with the view of the Eiffel Tower. A bit after, we headed ourselves a few stairs down to Le Lobby Restaurant. Our starters were a very fresh burrata and also a water mouthery dish with quinoa and prawns – Just perfect for a hot day! Mom asked for a really nice fish as main and I ordered a delicious steak, with asparagus and feta salad on the side. Time for a bride-to-be worst nightmare: the dessert.  Mom and I shared an amazing chocolate profiterole. It was such an incredible and special night!

Next day, we had to go back to that mission of ours…… we never give up! haha We ended up finding a beautiful dress for my mom at Max Mara. It fitted her so well! We were so happy and also very emotional, couldn’t hold the tears after seeing my mom dressing her dress for my wedding! 

It was about lunch time so we were off to Mandarin Oriental, what a beautiful garden that place has got. Unfortunately, our adventure was coming to an end and it was time for mom to leave back to São Paulo and I to return to London. Most importantly: our main trip Mission was accomplished and very successful. It was summed up in glasses of rosé, food and of course, shopping!

Looks

Wide Leg Trousers

Sunny days are back in town! It’s been just so nice out there these days, all that greyness was replaced by the heat. I was on my way to another meeting, non-stop as usual. So I thought that something a bit more loosy and refreshing would be ideal to face the busy day that I was going to have ahead.

In this occasion, I am wearing these beautiful wide leg trousers by Missoni (available at the Outnet). I love the stripped colours on it! Also, to make the outfit a bit more simple and basic, I wore this top from Storets. I really think that the design of it and also the material are amazing! Just perfect for a full-on day. How do you guys like the look?

Marrakech with Kalmar

Had a 5am flight again, early bird! Not complaining though when destination is the beautiful Marrakech with my partner in crime NinaAs soon as we arrived, there was a car waiting for us at Marrakech Airport to bring us to Four Seasons Hotel. London isn’t cold at the moment, which is great… But nothing to compare to with the heat we felt as soon as we touched down. 

Location: Royal Mansour

Arriving at the hotel, I was welcomed with such a nice surprise from Kalmar. There was a bag with so many beautiful pieces in it, right on the bed! We chilled for a bit and had a shoot with Kalmar afterwards. 

Location: El Fenn Riad

Location: Our Villa at Four Seasons

Shoot was great! Our villa in Four Seasons  in Marrakech was just out of this world guys, you cannot believe it! So beautiful! A bit later, we gathered at the Royal Mansour for our afternoon tea, amazing place guys, really reccomend it (Sorry queen, but I just love the way Moroccans make tea and the taste of it). Time to get changed again and head ourselves to Bô Zin which is considered to be one of the restaurants in town. Dinner was just mouth-watering and the music was absolutely great! We danced the whole night. It’s gotta be one of the best restaurants I’ve been to! 

Location: El Fenn Riad

Next day, we had breakfast at 9am in the hotel and went for a private tour in Marrakech centre. Weather was boiling hot and the tour was really nice! I really liked the street markets in town. Also, we visited  Koutobia Mosque and a beautiful palace. 

Location: El Fenn Riad

After the tour, we went back to Karen Ruimy’s home for lunch, followed by AW17 collection preview. The pieces were absolutely beautiful. Then, we had the whole afternoon to enjoy at Karen’s pool afterwards. Headed back to the hotel for dinner and to get ready for the party later on! 

Woke up early next day for breakfast at Four Seasons Villa and later we relaxed with a traditional Hammam spa treatment. At around 16:00 we had our airport transfer, it was unfortunately time to come back home. 

Thanks Kalmar, Four Seasons Hotel and Marrakech for such a lovely time!
