Camichella

Few weeks ago we set off to Bodrum for my HEN party. I was just so excited for it and couldn’t wait to manage to gather my friends from Europe and Brazil all together in such a beautiful place. #CAMICHELLA

We were a group of 12 friends from the UK and from back home! It started off on the bad foot when my maid of honour and my cousin missed their flights, they normally say when something happens right at the start, the rest should be all ok. Not sure if the theory is correct but I must say we had the best time apart of this little incident haha.

As soon as we landed we were greeted by the the very friendly staff from Il Riccio that took us to the amazing hotel. Set by a paradisiac rocks and sea, white and blue themed, so dreamy! We checked-in, then straight for lunch at their restaurant. A feast awaited us as we came for lunch, the most delicious seafood and mediterranean food – just what we needed to fuel up! The best part was yet to come… once we  finished our meal the staff took us to the “Temptation Room” which is a room filled with the most amazing sweets and everything you can think of really… the only rule is to eat as much as you want! We definitely obeyed it.

After lunch we headed for a cocktail party at the busy and very lively Maçakizi hotel. The mixture of relaxing paradise with the lively vibe was perfect for the HEN. We all had a great time.

Later that evening we headed for dinner in Bodrum busy city centre where the marine is. For my surprise it is a very modern place with lots of tourists and such a nice place to hang out. We had a yummy dinner at FENIX and partied the night away there.

Next morning we were off to D Maris Bay. The place is located right in the middle of an absolutely gorgeous nature area, in between the volcanic rocks and almond trees. We had the pleasure to enjoy the views towards the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. 

My favourite part of our stay at D Maris Bay was the incredible boat trip we took around the island. My friend Edson has a brand called Alto Giro. His brand actually designed all the CAMICHELLA swimsuit for us! It was so special! I couldn’t ask for better friends on earth, really…

Thank you to my forever gorgeous bridesmaid Nina for organising the Hen. Thanks to all my friends for coming and making it happen! And finally thanks to D Maris Bay and Il Riccio team for hosting us.

Le Vendôme

Le Vendôme is situated in the heart of Beirut, right in the coast overlooking the Mediterranean sea. It’s very close the main shopping areas, such as the Beirut souks and Hamra street. 

As soon as you come in, your attention will surely be caught by the beautiful gold furnishings, there’s gold everywhere you look actually. Another thing which is very clear about the hotel is the fact that it’s a very quiet and private place. Unlike other places, Le Vendôme is the perfect hotel if you’re looking for privacy. 

The hotel hosts Sydney’s restaurant, which is for many the best in town. The restaurant is on the rooftop and has an amazing panoramic views over the sea. It’s absolutely beautiful! Sydney’s serves incredible classic dishes and it is also 24 hours. Breakfast is also served there, you can enjoy the outstanding morning view as you have your breakie! 

Le Vendôme is everything you could expect from a hotel, I would definitely recommend it!

An Escape to Beirut With Michael Kors

Touched down in Beirut. The heat as soon as I came out of that flight on my skin… oh summer, how much I love you! Long days till I waited to come to Beirut…and there I was, in this vibrant, lovely, young city and apart of the scars from the war so full of life! You can feel it everywhere…

Just like escaping to a new adventure on the most exotic places, is the new fragance by Michael Kors Wonderlust Sensual Essence. I have to admit I must agree with you here Michael:
“There’s something alluring about such an intoxicating and exotic scent—it makes you want to have an adventure,”. Yes, that is right! One pump of perfume and it takes me to another place… it is incredible how some scents make us feel like this, isn’t it?

Traveling into places you have never been before and feeling the freedom is something that amuses me so much. I love to walk around, stop at the cafés, speak to locals and go to places where tourists don’t normally go to – you never know what is to come from the unexpected!

The scent exhales romance and fearlessness, a mixture of Jasmine with Orange Blossom to create a captivating spirit while the sensuality and warmth of Amber and Cashmere Woods gently embrace the skin.

Thanks Michael Kors for being part of this trip with me. You can find the perfume here.
