Hermes loot from Avignon, Provence, France

As I mentioned in my previous post, I visited the gorgeous area of Provence in southern France recently, and of course one simply needs to shop for some of those amazing products the French are so good at making while in France!

In my case, I decided to do a teeny tiny bit of shopping at Hermes, that happens to be one of my favorite brands.


I got a new scarf, as I have been so happy with my previous scarves from Hermes, so I knew I would be using any new scarves I got too.



This scarf is called Under the Waves, and I have actually been eyeing it for a while, but none of the other Hermes stores I visited recently had it in stock (it's a scarf from last season), so I was very happy to find it in Avignon!
I also got an enameled colorful bangle.

I actually had another bangle in mind, but they did not have the one I wanted, so I ended up getting this one instead, the Harnais des Presidents.

My husband actually thought that was enough shopping, as I also planned to visit the Hermes store in Aix-en-Provence (sadly, I never had the chance to do that in the end...), but I grabbed some of the new shower gels, with brand new scents, on the way out as well. I am yet to try them, but look forward to doing so soon!

The Pigonnet Hotel, Aix-en-Provence, Provence, France

As I mentioned in my previous post, I traveled to Provence, France recently, and when doing so, I had the chance to stay at the wonderful Pigonnet Hotel in Aix-en-Provence. And I would go back there in a heartbeat!




Not only does the Pigonnet have wonderful gardens, where Cezanne supposedly used to wander once upon a time (my son loved them!), the food was delicious and the room (or apartment suite, actually) just wonderful!










Although we just stayed in Aix-en-Provence for a few days, the Pigonnet Hotel really was the perfect base for all our adventures in the city!

Some more photos from my trip to Hong Kong

I have mentioned my trip to Hong Kong in 2 previous posts, but since I am about to set off on another trip (to France this time, so I am sure both the dining and the shopping will be amazing!), I thought I would share some last photos from my trip there, that I intended to post ages ago, but somehow I forgot.

First of all, if you have never been to Hong Kong, let me tell you the shopping there is amazing!







And the hotels are too!
I stayed at the Langham Hotel, which was just amazing!

I especially liked these charming statues in their lobby, I wished they were for sale so I could have brought them home with me!


Hong Kong was definitely a wonderful experience in every way, I can't wait to go back there!

What I have shopped so far in Hong Kong

Well, besides a hairbrush that I had to get at Muji as I forgot my regular one at home, I have only made purchases at Hermes and Louis Vuitton so far, but aren't those some of the best stores to shop in anyway?

My purchases at Louis Vuitton were some travel books...
and a black simple pochette.
Some might say that is a boring option for your first Louis Vuitton bag, but I actually don't think so at all. I am not very into super big logos, so this is more discreet and therefore more to my liking.

And at Hermes I had to get two scarves of course. I went with the classic 90x90 size.
These are actually my first Hermes scarves too, so they are really special to me for that reason.
This one is called Le Voyage de Pytheas and I love it since I am a big lover of maps.
And this one is called La Maison des Carres and I fell for it since it is kind of funny and has a lot of detail so I feel I will not get tired of it too fast.

Where I am at the moment

It is pretty exciting, so of course I have to share! You see, for the first time in my life I am currently visiting Hong Kong, and what a fantastic place it is!
The city itself has a great energy and a lot of really charming places too. I am staying at the Langham Hotel in Kowloon, and I must say it is a fantastic base for exploring Hong Kong!



I haven't left yet, but I am already looking forward to returning here, and if that isn't a good sign, then I don't know what is!
