A casual day w/ ASUS

An afternoon with friends. The joy of a spring day, one of those carefree, between chatters and laughters. Because you know, sometimes we women only need this: spend time with us. A pizza or a walk downtown, the time with our friends is something precious.
Sunglasses, a pair of flats, a colorful skirt that recalls my Africa and a denim shirt. But do not give up my ASUS ZenBook, it accompanies me everywhere! So while I await the arrival of my friends, I can interact with my followers, upload photos for the next blog post or listening to music. Now we are inseparable, it accompanies me on all occasions, from the most formal to the total disengagement; then it is so slight, I can easily put it in the bag to be connected with the digital world at all times!

Happy Hour with ASUS Zenbook

End of the day, a shy spring wind that caresses the hair, the sun with its rays on my skin and summer becomes ever closer away with fresh and genuine flavors of a Mediterranean aperitif: toast, tomatoes, red and juicy, basil with that intoxicating aroma.
From my ZenBook, musical notes of distant lands surround me and accompany me looking for the next destination to visit, in a summer to be discovered.
My ZenBook is not only a tool but a great companion during my free time, which makes it a must have from which never separated even during an aperitif, cheerful and colorful as my #ZenOutfit.

Una mattina alla SPA del Mimozas Resort

Sometimes we feel the need to estranged from everyday life, take time for us, treat ourselves further, but the simple escape from the daily reality of is not enough. What could be better, to recuperate, a SPA treatment perhaps in a romantic resort located in a seaside town?
I found this peace at Mimozas Resort Cannes (here), with its SPA for those searching for the pleasure of harmony and relaxation in a precious environment, where care of himself becomes the only priority.
An exclusive oasis of relaxation and wellbeing that offers its guests prestigious spaces and world-class standards: whirlpools, a wellness program that consists of Finnish sauna, aromatic steam bath, emotional and reactions showers, finally a relaxation area where tea and relaxing herbal teas are served.
If the spa treatments are not enough, you can give other relying pampering with gentle massage, accompanied by relaxing music and the scent of essential oils, which will make you want to immortalize that moment...

Château De Mandelieu

I woke up at dawn, with the weight of sleepy eyes, among the crumpled sheets and matted hair, even before the alarm clock. The bathrobe waiting for me, there where I left it the night before. One foot and then the other, on the cold floor, to the window of my room here at the Mimozas Resort (here). Hands on blue cotton, decided to deviate slightly those curtains, just a little, to go out barefoot on the balcony and breathe that air, warm and salty, of a Friday in late May morning in Mandelieu.
Wearing the peach-colored dress, one of my favorites, one of those long and fluttering at the first breath of wind I decided to have breakfast, eagerly, like children on Christmas morning.
Once walked the avenue flanked by a side from the golf courses and on the other by a canal navigated by many boats and ducklings, the sea loomed before me in all its glory, with those calm and turquoise shades. To fall me in love, right next to the port, a castle, that of a princess and her childhood dream, when as a child she enjoyed building sand castles.
Once upon a time... So, as in fairy tales we find ourselves in Mandelieu-La Napoule, so romantic and charming, with its château constantly kissed by the waves.
One of the most charming castles of the French Riviera, built by the sea in 1387 by Villeneuve counts, witness a rather eventful history and makes unique La Napoule beach.
Destroyed and rebuilt several times throughout history, the castle of La Napoule is a gift of love and the dream of a romantic couple; the Clews. Henry, rich heiress of an American banking family, and Marie, a beautiful lady who, with his sensitivity, carved the castle gardens for the pleasure of guests and visitors.
What we see today is the result of the renovation and modification work that Clews have brought to this place. A real spell of works of art, engravings and symbols that, for the most part, were sculpted by Henry Clews as a promise of eternal love for Marie.

Un week end al Mimozas Resort

A few years ago I was on French Riviera, and I fell in love. So close to Italy as it is welcoming, the French Riviera is full of all the right ingredients for a perfect holiday: crystal clear water, excellent cuisine, vibrant city full of night life, white beaches, perched villages and flowers, from lavender to roses but also the mimosa. Mimosa?? Yes, in French Riviera there is a place where this fragrant blossom is celebrated. This place is Mandelieu-La Napoule, just a few kilometers from Cannes, famous throughout the world for its mimosa.
Over the years I have longed to come back; the French Riviera, with his sea that "speaks", is one of those places that do not get enough, I would go back a further 100 times. So, last week I found myself preparing a suitcase made of long loose-fitting dresses, big hats, sandals and sunscreen.
I had never been in Mandelieu, with its castle on the sea, the unique charm and allure of "Belle Epoque" that makes La Napoule a landscape that is the legend of the French Riviera.
But Mandelieu is also the ideal place to relax in the beautiful resorts and spas that are located along the coast. And where to stay if not at the resort, with its name, celebrates precisely this flower?!
The Mimozas Resort, one of the jewels of Mandelieu, located 10 minutes from the center of Cannes; here you can follow the footsteps of the "stars" on the Croisette and pose for a souvenir photo on the red carpet of the Palais des Festivals, intoxicated with the scent of flowers from Grasse, the capital of fragrances, discover the pleasure of Monte Carlo, take a trip by boat to the Lerins Islands, or visit the picturesque towns nearby, such as Antibes, Nice and Frejus.
From the first moment I stepped into the entrance, a sense of peace and calm enveloped me and rocked along with the scent of salt air carried by the sea breeze.
After a romantic "Bonjour Madame" I began to dream: the lovely view of the lake, the bar-shaped boat, the solid wood furniture and green and blue fabrics, corals... all spoke to me of my great love, the sea. But the show was yet to begin. Once I opened the door of my apartment, the Maritime Alps and the lake, inhabited by many fish and turtles, are wide open in front of my eyes, from that moment, no longer have ceased to shine.
The walks on the pier to reach the restaurant, the smell of croissants au chocolat still hot, the sun's rays that plunge into the lake, the cry of gulls, fresh fruit, baguettes and a sweet melody accompanied my every waking. The days spent slowly, in total relaxation, including massages and rejuvenating treatments in the spa, play golf, swim and grilled fish in the cheerful and colorful pool bar, then to fall in love on the beach in front of those breathtaking sunsets. When the evening fall the atmosphere at Mimozas Resort is even more romantic and relaxing. The dinners by candlelight, those with refined and delicious tastes, accompanied by a good wine from Provence, live music and lumières de la soir to illuminate the lake, make it all so magical, evocative and unforgettable, like one of those so beautiful moments that you would like to expand endlessly, much to stop time and remain in that mixture of sweet sensations from which would you want to separate yourself.
At that moment I realizes that will be a goodbye:
Au revoir Cote d'Azur, mon coer appartient à toi.
