Restautant Vendôme Paris

September 3, 2017

Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love French food. This weekend I had the chance to go to a lovely restaurant called Vendôme Paris specialized in French cuisine but with additional international dishes as a wider selection.

A Day in The Jais Mountain

The Mountain is located in the Emirate of Ras El Khaima,  on the border between Oman and United Arab Emirates. The height of the mountain is 1,911 m (6,268 feet). We drove from Dubai, and it took us 1,5 hours to get to the highest point of mountain (you can drive up,…

A Scent of the Middle-East Jo Malone Velvet Rose & Oud

June 22, 2017

Living in Dubai, I got attached to the smell of Oud or Agarwood. The strong smell and long lasting qualities of Agarwood makes it a favorite among locals. Agarwood is mostly burned as incense during festivities, but a lot of people still prefer using it as a perfume (compact or oil). I never thought that I could wear Oud until I came across Jo Malone’s Velvet Rose & Oud…

We loved touring all the main area from the Mercado Central to the Barrio Bellavista, the Moneda, San Cristobal Hill, Alameda, The Museum of History…
