Over the weekend my family and I spent a night at the Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfront. We desperately needed a staycation. As a frequent reader of this blog you may know that we’re all about family time especially on the weekends. This being said when the opportunity came along to spend a night at the Wyndham’s Presidential Suite we knew that we couldn’t pass up on this amazing occasion. Chicago is not only our hometown but it truly holds a special place in our hearts.
Driving along the California Pacific Coast Highway was perhaps one of the best experiences my family and I did together. It’s by far one of the greatest road trips in the world…, and my son LOVED every minute of it as well. He did amazing and I truly couldn’t be more blessed to share these precious memories with my family…

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
― Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
Ernest Hemingway is right: Paris is a moveable feast, a feast for your eyes. Returning to Europe has been nothing but pure joy except for my jet lag. We arrived early Sunday morning Paris time and I must admit: We were dead beat. My son and I slept on and off until 1PM the next day. However, after 1PM I said to myself: “Enough sleep. We need to go out and explore!” The fact, that most places are within walking distance, is such a plus! Hence my son, Kingston and I (my husband had to work) ventured out to Notre Dame. We passed the “Lovers Bridge”, and Kingston and I decided to leave a love locket with our initials behind as well. It was a very sweet moment.
I took these pictures myself today, and believe or not, but I really enjoyed being behind the lens for once. Capturing the beauty of Paris is almost impossible but I tried my hardest. Even though I’m European and I grew up with all this history around me I am still mesmerized every time I’m surrounded by historical architecture, such as Notre Dame. My son was quite smitten as well. He asked a lot of questions which I was very happy to answer.
This being said: Travel, travel! There’s nothing more beautiful but to smell foreign air.
As always, thanks much for visiting & have a wonderful day!
Much love from Paris!

Greetings from Aruba! My family and I are having a wonderful time in the Caribbean, and I am excited to announce that I have a few wonderful projects lined up while I’m here. So, stay tuned for more!
Today I’m featuring a head-to-toe look from A’GACI. I focused on styling this look to create a Halloween costume…can you guess what I’m trying to be?
I think the color burgundy is perfect to be a “seductive” woman, and what’s more “femme” than these lace-up heels? I seriously love them! I’ve been looking for lace-up heels for the longest time, and I’m just so glad that I finally found a pair at A’GACI. What are your plans for Halloween? Any outfit ideas?! Let me know by commenting below, and as always, thanks so much for visiting!

Happy Friday! I’m quite obsessed with Instagram (HUBBY, I admitted it!). It’s such an easy way to share snapshots from your day! I haven’t done an Instagram round-up in quite a while so I figured a Friday was the perfect day for it. First up, are my insta snaps from my vacation in San Francisco! Enjoy, and have a fabulous weekend! See you back here on Monday!
