It´s been a few weeks since my last post and I am truly sorry for this! Even though I always knew that being a mom would change my priorities forever, I never in a million years imagined how (sometimes) stressful and time consuming this new role can be. And while I enjoy and appreciate every moment with my little one, I also miss my old life and especially my blog.

Well, I will try to post more often and regularly from now on! Bear with me, my dear readers :-)

For today´s boho-inspired look I wore a white tunic from Zara, some grey skinny jeans and combined them with my current go-to-mom-shoes from Jimmy Choo. Yes, my high-heel-wearing-times seem to be over and I assembled quite the sneakers-collection. Didn´t see that one coming :-)

Jewelry: Cartier & Hermès

Handbag: Hermès (find a very cute and similar Fendi bag over here)

Starting this week, Chanel once again takes up summer residence at the private villa La Mistralée in Saint-Tropez. Each year House creates different décor settings, a showcase for its Ready-to-Wear, accessories, watches and fine jewellery collections. This season, the interior design tends towards clean lines and monochrome. Each room is painted in a single shade: navy blue, burgundy, pink nude and gold. Only a few walls are heightened with sections of floral wallpaper. The glass and chrome furniture in colours to match each room is modern and minimal.

Review: Shangri-La Hotel Paris

My husband and me recently took a three-day shopping trip to Paris and decided to treat ourselves to a special accomodation.

The Shangri-La Hotel is a 5-star belle-époque palace with the absolute best views of the Eiffel Tower and it was once the home of Napoleon’s grand-nephew, Prince Roland Bonaparte, who lived here until his death in 1924. For the hotel opening in 2010 every small detail of Prince Bonaparte’s home has been meticulously restored which makes you feel like visiting royalty. I love hotels that are authentic in their design, and like the Mercer Hotel in Barcelona, which I visited last May, the Shangri-La is a perfect example of a hotel that honors its building’s history.

Dear all,

I´d like to thank you for your kind words, messages and sweet gifts that have reached me within the past week. Me and the little one are now at home and slowly getting used to our new life together. While I am currently very busy with nursing and taking care of the baby, things on the blog will hopefully be back to normal in a few weeks :-)
