10 THINGS TO DO AND SEE IN SAINT PAUL DE VENCE. One of my all time favourite little mountain villages in the South of France is without hesitation Saint Paul de Vence. This little village has such history and charm, filled with countless of antique stores, art galleries and neat little boutiques selling curated fashion and accessories. They also have the most picturesque little Relais & Chateau property located in the village, Hotel le Saint-Paul which I love. It’s the perfect boutique hotel for a romantic get away. We ate dinner at their restaurant one night and the ambiance is absolutely magical and the food and beverage experience is absolutely mouth watering. Johan surprised me during our dinner with a present, an absolutely stunning sapphire/diamond bracelet that goes perfectly with my engagement rings.

I wanted to share my 10 favourite things to see and do in Saint Paul de Vence in this post so here we go! I hope you will find some new favourites!

Le Tilleul – Enjoy a romantic dinner here and make sure to book a table outside with the best sunset view. This place has such an amazing ambiance.

La Colombe d’Or – An absolutely stunning 5 star boutique hotel. Perfect for a romantic get away or make sure to stop by for lunch or dinner. The garden it absolutely beautiful.

Fragonard – Be sure to pay this boutique a visit. I love Fragnoard and I always make sure to stop by to buy souvenirs and presents for friends and family.

Le Saint Paul – The perfect restaurant to enjoy a romantic date night with your loved one.

Musée Renoir – Saint Paul de Vence is filled with so much beautiful art to discover as well as museums, Musée Renoir being one of them, a must visit when in town.

Le Petite Cave de Saint Paul – If you are a wine lover make sure to stop by Le Petite Cave de Saint Paul and buy some wine from local producers. They have a great selection.

Les Gourmandises – My favourite ice cream in Saint Paul de Vence can be found right here. I love their salted caramel flavour as well as their peach flavour.

Foundation Maeght – One of the most famous art galleries in Saint Paul de Vence. A must visit when in town.

The Folon Chapel – Discover the design work of Jean-Michel Folon by visiting this chapel. Folon’s close collaboration with village craftsmen, his stained glass designs, sculptures, and fascination with light, are all keys to understanding his world and his conception of art.

Grande Fontaine – This square has always been the busiest spot in the village. From dawn until dusk villagers would come to fetch water, donkeys and mules would drink, and washerwomen would scrub and beat their laundry in the washhouse. The square also hosted the weekly market in the 17th century.

Our home in Saint Tropez

8 September, 2019

Photographer: Mon amour

OUR HOME IN SAINT TROPEZ. The house we rented was located in a suburban area approximately 10 minutes away from the harbour of Saint Tropez. It was such a calm area, such a lovely contrast to the city center of Saint Tropez which is pretty much one big, never ending party.. I love taking part of it but I need some down time in between, just chilling by our pool, reading, enjoying some rosé, eating delicious French cheeses and baguettes, otherwise it can get a bit overwhelming. Not really feeling like a vacation, more like a part-time job, keeping up with everything that Saint Tropez has to offer.

This was a look that I wore before we headed down to the harbour to enjoy some delicious ice cream at our favourite ice cream parlour Barbarac (I love the tarte Tropezienne flavour) to then watch the sunset before heading out to dinner.

Lunch at La Réserve à la Plage, St Tropez

6 September, 2019

LUNCH AT LA RÈSERVE À LA PLAGE, ST TROPEZ. During our vacation we rented a house in St Tropez. My favourite kind of vacation, I love to rent a house, making you feel more like a local in another country. We spent our days enjoying different beaches, beach clubs, restaurants or just enjoying some quiet time at home in the villa by the pool, reading books and drinking rosé. I just can’t get enough of the French riviera, there is no other place I would rather spend my summer vacay.

One of the best lunch experiences we had during our vacay was without a doubt at La Réserve à la Plage, a new restaurant located on Plage de Pampelone. They serve Mediterranean cuisine and the menu is filled with mouth watering dishes, you want to eat it all. Some of my favourite dishes that we ate was their burrata (Made to share) which was divine. We also ordered their yellowfin tuna with corn (Which was my favourite), their truffle rigatoni as well as their divine guacamole made of avocados from Peru (Peru have the best and most delicious avocados in the world). I must say, it was the most delicious guacamole I have eaten in my entire life.

I can’t recommend this place enough! Can’t wait to come back next year! After our lunch we spent our afternoon on their beach beds, swimming in the ocean, drinking rosé, reading our vacay books, simply soaking in the wonderful ambience of the French Riviera!

Born to go with Samsonite

27 August, 2019

This post is a collaboration with Samsonite

 

BORN TO GO WITH SAMSONITE. Travelling smoothly has become more and more important for me with age. When I was younger I had no problem buying a ticket with 1-2 stopovers, buying the early morning flight because it was the cheapest. But at this point in my life I prioritize convenience and comfort above all. Always choosing direct fights, avoiding those early morning flights at all costs and buying business class tickets when we fly long haul so I can arrive well rested at the final destination. So for me it’s more than natural that my suitcases need to be just as smooth and light as the rest of my journey and Samsonite has been my go to suitcase since I was young. My parents always bought Samsonite bags so I have truly seen the product development closely during these last 20 years and it makes me even more proud to collaborate with Samsonite. These Samsonite suitcases are so extremely light and are super smooth to roll, it feels like they are floating along beside you. You don’t want to feel that your suitcases are a hassle, they should at all times make your life easier when travelling.

A new feature that Samsonite has launched recently is the ‘Make your bag personal’ feature that you can apply to certain bags in their selection. You can read more about which bags you can apply this in here. My bags are branded with @afashionistasguide so they can’t be mistaken to be somebody else’s bags when they arrive on the baggage belt and it’s always a fun feature to make your suitcases a bit more personalised.

New in: & Other Stories and Soludos

15 August, 2019

 

NEW IN: & OTHER STORIES AND SOLUDOS. I did some shopping before our vacation in Saint-Tropez, I needed some vacay bags, a pair of white denim shorts and a new pair of espadrilles and I must say that my little shopping session was a great success! I found 2 super cute vacay bags in the & Other Stories store on Biblioteksgatan, such a great brand a store that I recently started to discover a bit more, this was my first time shopping there. I loved their selection, will definitely come back for more! After that I found the perfect pair of white denim shorts at Twist & Tango that I have used so much since buying them, they are so comfy and has the perfect length. After that I walked up towards Östermalmstorg where you can find Åhlens which is a big department store. I found 2 espadrilles from Soludos (Which is one of my favourite brands for espadrilles) as well as a third vacay bag which I have used so much since buying it! All in all, this shopping session was a great success, I found everything I was looking for!

 

NEW IN: & OTHER STORIES AND SOLUDOS. Inför vår semester i Saint-Tropez så gjorde jag en liten shoppingrunda på stan där jag köpte lite passande semesterföremål. Jag gick bland annat in på Akademibokhandeln (En butik jag absolut älskar) och köpte med mig 4 böcker att läsa (Älskar att läsa böcker). Efter det så gick jag ned på Biblioteksgatan och slank in på & Other Stories av en slump, har aldrig direkt haft en relation till detta varumärke förens några få veckor tillbaka men jag måste säga, wow, vilket härligt varumärke och älskar deras butik samt utbud! Det fanns verkligen mycket fint! Jag spanade in deras väskor då jag letade efter lite semesterväskor och hittade 2 stycken (Den med snäckor på samt den runda bollen) och blev så nöjd med mina inköp, riktiga fynd!

Sedan så promenerade jag vidare upp mot Östermalmstorg där jag slank in på Åhlens där jag köpte två espadrilles från Soludos (Ett utav mina favoritmärken när det kommer till espadrilles). Samt så hittade jag en tredje semesterväska som jag har fått så mycket nytta utav sedan jag köpte den! Letade även efter ett par vita shorts och hittade ett par riktigt snygga inne på Twist & Tango. En riktigt lyckad runda på stan måste jag säga!
