Day 5 – Sweet Sunday

20130811-223813.jpg
Sunday, the day of rest. It always fascinates me how bustling French towns turn into empty streets one day each week. It changes a place completely. We spent today relaxing, eating, walking and taking in the calm atmosphere.

I went for a mint dress this eve with neutral accessories. My new clutch and bracelet matched up well and it is a particularly comfy dress which was perfect for sitting on the port wall eating treats and drinking iced tea.

I fell in love with this pink and white macaroon dessert today. Ive been conjuring up cupcake ideas inspires by the lovely colour all evening. We stepped away from the French cuisine and opted for sushi for dinner. It was so fresh and delicious! We ended up sitting on a wall eating dougnut sticks (chi chi) and watching the beautifully lit harbour.

Off to bed, ready for the world to wake up for Monday.

Day 2 – Are we there yet?

Hello Everyone,

Today was our main travel day. A five hour drive through to La Rochelle has worn Tink out but we did get here in time to enjoy some of the lovely sun and scenery!

With a strong coffee, a coissant and clear roads ahead, our morning drive was pleasent enough.

Our hotel is really nice, sittig right in the center of La Rochelle just a few steps from the port.

Is it sad that the first thing I always check out is what freebie wash products are out? Probably, but I’m impressed with my little selection. I have now added to it my essentials: Liz Earle Cleanser, Origins Ginzing face cream and Soap & Glory sugar body butter.

The weather is fine but not scorching so I popped on my denim dress and some accessories.

La Rochelle really is a stunner. I love the sea and Tink and I enjoy picking boats we like best in wishful thinking. The top image really caught my eye. I love the colours of the houses with the lighthouse and wheel together. When I get back to the UK I will post some higher quality pics of the whole trip.

I thought I would add some pictures of random bits and bobs each day that I liked.

There are some really fun shops here, lots selling retro furniture which I love! Even thw green chair in my hotel room is pretty cool.

I always stand for ages starring at stalls. This bead stand had me for quite a while. All colour co-ordinated and shiny!

You can’t go a day in France without some kind of sweet treat. Today a chocolate and banana crepe. Yum!

Looking forward to more exploration and fun tomorrow.

Day 1 – On The Way!

20130807-214540.jpg

Hello Everyone,

We set off on our little holiday to France this morning, yay! I am going to post a little page of pics each day on here for those who fancy seeing what I’m up to.
Apologies for quality as I am having to use my phone to take the pics, collage them and post from.

I will include as much fashion and beauty as possible but the trip is mainly about sun, sea, food and pretty views!

We are currently relaxing in hotel number one in Rouen just south of Calais after a little poke around the cute city center and a scrumtious salad followed buy sweets from the biggest sweet shop I have ever come across!

Until tomorrow,
