News from Menu, designers of scandinavian interiors. I discovered Menu on the fair Maison & Objet with a sleek and delicacy stand. The brand is made for those who wish to have the least possible elements in their interior, whithout any frills. I especially like the sets for the art of the table, and you immediately want to realize dishes as delicate as you can see in renown restaurants. You can find this brand in Le Bon Marché and Fleux.

I visited Italia and Amalfi coast during the summer. We went from Amalfi to Positano and Capri. All the views are beautiful and stunnings. But don't go there when it's summer. It's crowded and you can't enjoy the whole beauty of the place. Though, we spent good times and eat really well, many pizzas and spaghettis alle vongole !
Be careful, you can fall in love again there, it's a place made for it. It's full of romantic places and you can feel La dolce vita in every stone.
We really enjoyed historic places like Pompei, and Herculanum which are intriguing for they're intact. You feel like there are still people living in these houses. The ruins are telling so much stories.
In others places, little towns like Positano, Amalfi, Praiano, Ravello, you can see panoramas with the blue of the sky, of the sea, and you feel like you are falling in these blue.
My preferred place were Ravello, and the villa Cimbrone, it's simply a perfect place to stay, to meditate. You have horizontal lines. One for the sky, one for the sea, and one for the balcony. They sum up the life like this, it's as simple as that...

Lola James Harper is a brand we discovered with A in Le Bon Marché in Paris. It's a collab and they have a corner down there. The artist who created the brand is also a photographer, a traveller and he started to work with perfumers and a Maitre Cirier in France.
So he did with extreme good tastes a serie of candles and perfumes reminding our childhood or some particular moments we'd loved. I bought one for my mother based on fig (!). I think she will love this fragrance for summer. And baboon A bought the one with monoï, perfect for the summer as well...
Names of perfumes are like poetry : The Promenade in Vincennes Wood, The Surf Shop of Stephane etc.
