Finally the sun came out so i have taken the advantage to go out and take some outfit pictures.
In this look i am wearing the french brand Le Temps des Cerises that is very famous out there for their jeans. Indeed, le Temps des Cerises is a specialist in “authentic” jeans. The design are inspired by second hand clothes but are still rock’n'roll and sexy.
The new spring/summer 2015 collection is very laid back and cool and is inspired by the Californian deserts I am wearing my favorite pieces in the outfit below. An almost transparent boho shirt that i will be wearing with shorts as well in the summer for a real boho look. The print is also available as a mini dress and as a maxi dress in the new Spring/Summer 2015. I am also wearing their skinny white jeans with fine embrodery. White jeans are a must have in spring and there are a lot of white jeans in their spring/Summer collection : boyfriends jeans, ripped jeans, or even dungarees.
Hello everyone, i know a lot of you girls are wearing the Chloé fragrances. Chloé is now selling a limited edition of their most famous fragrances which have the rose flower as head notes : Chloé, Roses de Chloé et Eau de Chloé, all available in 20ml for a price of 90Euros.
A perfect gift idea for all who have friends who wear the Chloé perfume or just for yourself if you wishes to try out new perfume or another side of the rose fragrance.
My favorite is Roses de Chloé, and since the bottle is small i always carry with me the Chloé perfume as well that i use after the gym or when i am at my boyfriend.
Another kind of article today. I am showing you what I use for blogging.
My most important item is my computer. Without computer it is just not possible to blog. I have a Mac Book Pro since 2 years. I am a huge Apple fan. I know it’s a bit ridiculous but I could not image using another brand for a computer. It’s just super easy to use. I can remember when I had a windows computer and had to install stuff I didn’t understand or fight against Virus and stuff I just don’t have the nerve for it.
I am thinking of buying a Max Book Air though, since I am travelling around it would be lighter to carry.
My second most important item is my camera, because without camera, no pictures and no pictures means no content.
I have been using the Olympus Pen E-Pl7 since december and I am really happy with it. I have 3 different lens. The basic one that is 14-42mm 1:3.5‑5.6 and that I can use for all situation, the 45mm 1:1.8 that I use to take my outfit pictures and the 8-18mm 1:4-5.6 that I love for travelling since it’s a wide angle lens and capture lots of the surroundings.
Another camera I have is the one i bought for my iphone. I started using Snapchat a few weeks ago (add me : lesberlinettes) but i didn’t really like the angle the iphone camera gives so I ordered an extra iphone 6 lens on Amazon. The one I have is from Olloclip. I really like it since it works on both back and front cameras. (Good to know : Other brands also sells those kind of lens but they work only on the back camera).
Recently I also bought an Ipad for when I am travelling. I think it is hard to blog with an IPAD though but I still like to have one when I am travelling and when the iphone is too small for example to watch a movie, do online shopping, read books or play games.
Also i use it to sign and scans documents. Two really good apps that work also for iphone are : Sign Easy and Genius Scan
For my music or watching movies I mostly use the Frends Taylor Headphones since the quality is good and they look so stylish
Hello, a little interview with the band The Plain White T’s.
You probably know their song “Hey there Delilah” which achieved platinum status in 2007 and earned two Grammy nominations, now they are back with a new single called “Pause” and a new Album called “American Nights” about which they talk about in my interview.
Enjoy their songs and the interview below
Me : You have been away from the Music scene for a little while now, so where have you been and what did you do?
The Plain White T’s : Since the song “Hey there Delilah” we actually had a few more hits. I don’t think you know those songs here in Europe but in the USA we had a few big hits :” 1,2,3, 4″ or “the rhythm of love” so have been busy with that. And for the past few years we have been working on this new Album : American Nights. We also went through a little bit of drama with labels and management, so it took a little bit longer than what we wanted to but it finally came out on March 31st.
Me : You talked about a bit of Drama. Can you tell a bit more about that.
The Plain White T’s : We had some creative differences. When we turned in what ended up being the album that we though taking back from them, they were pretty excited about it. They loved the album.
The label has been through a lot of changes in house though, so maybe the people that were fighting for you in the building aren’t there anymore. They kept pushing back the release date of the album and we were stuck without being able to release anything.
So at that point we were like well, if you are not gonna do anything about it, give it back to us and when we took it back we pretty much scrapped half of it and said, we’re gonna be independent now so let’s just make it just how we want and not worry about any kind of creative issues. So we ended up really rerecording all the songs and ended up doing the album that we wanted.
So, what is the new Album, “American Nights” about?
The Plain White T’s : It’s just about going out, meeting up with friends, just having a few drinks and trying to make the most of the night. It’s also about looking back, being nostalgic but also abut looking forward.
How did the collaboration with Lipton Ice Tea for your new single “Pause” happened?
The Plain White T’s : We wrote a song called “Pause” last summer while being on tour. So one morning i woke up and i was like, we are on tour, this is great, we have to make the best of this and enjoy what we have here, we’re doing what we love, we’re living our dream and so i wrote that song about really acknowledging where you are in life and being appreciating of that moment.
Lipton came to us because they were fans of the band and they liked the idea that we were the Plain White T’s and it would be a play on words with Lipton Ice Tea. Also they planned a campaign called #bemoretea that will launch this summer and the idea behind is the same kind of idea than what we say in our song “Pause”.
Their thoughts were that coffee drinkers are too hectic, and they never slow down. The idea of taking a second and enjoy a cup of tea and enjoy the moment, is what they want to promote and so it happened that our song was similarly about slowing down and enjoying the moment.
Now that we are independent we don’t have the reach that a big label would have by pushing everything, so having our song played in a commercial across the continent is is a huge exposure. It was for us the perfect timing to come together with Lipton Ice Tea.
Me : What is you #bemoretea moment?
The Plain White T’s : It’s the moment you pause. It’s when you can be more reflective, when you take the chance to look inward or take the time to connect with someone.
Hello everyone, finally I am posting a little photo diary of the trip I took to Lisbon, Portugal with other brand Ambassadors of the Olympus Pen E-PL7.
Not only we visited the beautiful city of Lisbon but we also had a shooting with the photographer Ralph Man for the Olympus online campaign. The idea behind the campaign was to shoot the ambassadors in their more representative outfits.
My style is very moody, one day I am boho, the other I am rock’n'roll or totally girly. Where I am, also affects my style and I like to adapt it to the city I’m in. For Lisbon I could not think of anything else than something boho. So for the shooting I decided to wear a long printed dress (that remembers all prints you can find or the walls and floors in the city – dress from Only), a fringed jacket (from Misguided, similar HERE) and some greek sandals (from Aldo you can get them HERE) to be comfy.
As I mentionned before, we hat the opportunity to discover the city of Lisbon during our trip.
We had a great time, we stayed at the beautiful Almana Hotel that is overviewing the old part of the city and the river, we visited very nice stores (who knew Lisbon had so nice interior stores?!), we drunk the typical Portuguese liquor : Ginja and ate delicious pastel de nata and other food (my highlight was the dinner at Mini Bar, it is such a beautiful location, the restaurant is inside the São Luiz Municipal Theater and the food is great, you can choose a surprise menu (you don’t know what you get so it’s very playful) that comes with 6 courses.
What I really loved about this city is the architecture though. This city has no much charm, the tiny alley, the colorful streets, the tiles everywhere, but also the few derelict buildings.
A little outfit from Lisbon where i spend a few days for a project together with Olympus.
I am really happy to be in this city i wanted to visit since a long time and with people i met and like. We are shooting some outfits and we did a tour of the city which is truly amazing.
In this outfit I am wearing a jacket from Esprit that is from their Campaign about friendship, and about being with special people in special places. Pretty much what i am doing here in Lisbon. Discover the campaign in the video below and HERE
Last time I stayed in Paris I slept at Hotel Molitor. It is actually the very first time that I slept in an hotel in Paris. When my family used to live in Paris I would always stay at my old apartment but things have changed and here I am in my hometown, sleeping in a hotel. Well I am not complaining about it, but it was definitely a weird feeling.
Anyway, I have heard a lot about Hotel Molitor and especially about their outdoor pool so I was thrilled to be able to stay there for a night.
The inside pool was closed because of a special event that day, but the outdoor pool was 28 degrees so even if we are in march, I went for a swim. That pool, is the main attraction in this hotel. Indeed, before Molitor was a hotel, it was Paris’ most famous swimming pool since 1929. All eyes are driven on it, all rooms have a view of it and it is illuminated at night.
This hotel actually made me think of a Miami hotel which you seen in movies, and this in the middle of Paris. Amazing.
I really liked the fact that Molitor is a 5 stars hotel but the crowd is very young and trendy and so you feel at ease despite all the luxury.
In my outfit I am wearing :
Jacket : Marc Cain
Dress : Zara
Shoes : Zara
For what is the city guide i think all guides are the same and you can find everything on the internet but if you want to treat yourself something nice then i would recommend the Louis Vuitton city guides.
And never forget to take pictures along the way! For this i always have my Olympus PEN E-PL7 camera with me with 2 lenses. One i do my outfits with and take pictures of food with, the 45mm lens and the wide angle lens the 14-42mm lens
