New York City Travel Diary

1

We arrived into NYC on a Friday evening and immediately started looking online for places to eat. We decided on one only a few blocks away called Secara, a Columbian restaurant serving fine Columbian cuisine and then tried to visit some popular rooftop bars only to find that there was an insane waiting list to take the elevator up. I was amazed at how every block was lined with an endless number of restaurants, shops & cafés galore. Everything is literally at your fingertips.

“La Vie en Rose” in Samoens & Villa Rose

village

Just an hour from Geneva, Samoens is a village in the French Alps in the southeastern region of France. It’s known for being a popular ski resort, but during the summer Samoens becomes a different kind of pristine paradise with its epic mountains and floral displays. A bit of history, this village was famous for its talented stone masons who were even called upon by Napoleon to work for him. Below is part what I did, where I stayed and what (organic beauty) products I used:

Diary of Paris

Paris has a special place in my heart. I lived here when I was 21 for about 6 months and it was one of the best periods of my life. Every day feels like a magical experience even if you’re doing seemingly normal things like having a coffee sitting in a brasserie and people-watching. It’s undeniable that everywhere you turn the city oozes charm, breeds romance and inspires awe. It is truly the most beautiful and romantic city in the world. Below is a short (for Paris) but sweet visual diary .

Annecy, France in 2 Hours

Annecy is a small town in the Southeast region of France and it’s less than an hour from Geneva. It seems like the French version of Geneva in fact because it has Lake Annecy but it’s full of cobbled streets, Savoyard charm, castles, cathedrals and canals. I visited this city for just a few hours but fell in love with its picturesque beauty so much so I had to whip up a quick impromptu post with the pictures I took. It was 90 degrees so I of course brought a few of my favorite sunscreens along with me. Below is a short visual diary of my super quick getaway.

My Lausanne Trip + Lausanne Palace & Spa

 

lausanne

Lausanne is a gorgeous Swiss city just 45 minutes away from Geneva, known for being a university town and home to the International Olympics Committee headquarters. It’s also a peaceful lakeside city with stunning views of the Alps. It was overcast while I was there so I couldn’t see the views in their full glory, but it was still glorious nonetheless.
