A day in Nancy

A day in Nancy

The sun was with us that day, and despite the modern part of the town I found fairly dull, I came back delighted thinking of the majestic cobblestoned Place Stanislas, its gold decorations and immense gates at each corner, as well as the sun visors of the boutiques that have made a home of the square, all looking like those of sweet shops from a time I have neither known or lived in.

A Sunday stroll in Saucourt

A Sunday stroll in Saucourt

A few weeks ago, my mum and I visited my aunt and uncle in Haute-Marne, in north-eastern France. We made the most of these few days at the heart of landscapes rather different from those we are used to living in and that we know, i.e. Burgundy’s vineyards and its small, so atypically charming villages. A three-hour drive up north away, everything is flat and there are immense stretches of gigantic pine forests.

a day in Windsor ♡ cutest place. cutest car. cutest bestie.

Last weekend, I was in Windsor (westwards right outside London) and absolutely fell in love with this place. It is the cutest little town I’ve been to so far, somewhere that gave me the impression to walk past hundreds of life-size dollhouses, giving this crown jewel a magical feel.

A day in Cambridge

A day in Cambridge

Walking down some tiny streets bordered by cute English country houses, crossing paths with happy dogs, visiting Harry Potter-like colleges, and marvelling in front of hundreds of beautiful purple flowers and the magical warmth of the first sun rays… spring was blooming in front of my very eyes this Saturday in Cambridge
