Are you ready for a relaxing time out in Brittany, France? There is no better place than “La Matine”.
This little chambre d’hotes has been carefully renovated and decorated by the lovely ceramist Colette and her charming husband. The couple knows how to spoil their guests with a great breakfast, homemade jam and delicious crêpe. Make sure you have a glance at Colette’s ceramic atelier. She is doing beautiful outdoor accessories and pottery decorated with her own poems. I’ve been there in June just before the high season started. It’s so quiet and peaceful.  A romantic stroll along the cliff is a “must do” before you go to bed. Enjoy the dramatic sunset. Bon nuit!


La Surprise is a very cute and charming boutique bed & breakfast, hidden in the mountains of Grasse at Côte d’Azur, France. It has been almost a year ago that I have spend some very relaxing days at La Surprise. The hosts of this mini paradise are Steve and Claire from England. Claire is the queen of decoration and she truly knows how to make an amazing breakfast. Steve is the one who knows all the fun places and stories about the area and its people. They even made a little travel book with all kind of tips and ideas about the area. Love it!

Summer is a great season, when you have time to enjoy it. In my case, I don’t. Too busy to leave the city and too rainy to get excited about anything. So I keep dreaming about my last trip to Côte d’Azur, South France. While I was looking through my old travel photos, I thought it would be fun to post this week some of my favorite Bread & Breakfast places. For everyone who doesn’t know where to hang out the rest of the summer, stay tuned! …and I keep dreaming.

It will be a place for creativity, art, design and interior design. Check it out – it’s gonna be something great!

When I saw this picture on streetfsn I was impressed by the amount of amazing shoes, outfits and color. It made me so happy and I got pretty much inspired. I promised myself to mix and match much more often style and color. This rainy summer definitely needs to be finished well heeled and happy!!! Love the jeans shirt – yellow skirt combination. Adorable. Which one is your favorite outfit? Any tips and ideas how to survive a rainy 15°C summer?
