WHAT TO WEAR IN MÉRIDA, MEXICO

February 2, 2019

Tomorrow you’ll finally read a new travel guide about the cultural capital of the Yucatán, Mérida. This city has a rich colonial history, with old narrow streets, broad plazas, impressive museums and it’s a great place to explore. I have a comprehensive list of places, where to eat and what to see, which I will share with you tomorrow on the blog. But first let’s talk about what to wear in Mérida?
What I saw, people do “dress up” especially in the evening. However, to dress up for brunch or dinner, I brought lot of pastel and colorful dresses, combined with colorful jewelry, flat shoes and a pair of wedges for the evening. As well as some nice color co-ordinated swimsuits for the pool, and vacation accessories such as hats and sunglasses.

June 28, 2018

The sun is shining, and the lazy days of summer vacation are calling. No matter where you spend this summer, protecting your skin is a must. For some, summer means heading off to sandy beaches and tropical locations, but for others it’s a matter of enjoying the summer in the city, with all the good weather and heading to riverside, lake or any location with outdoor pool. No matter where you spend this summer, protecting, exfoliating and firming will make you bikini ready for this season. Continue Reading…

UNDER THE PALM TREES

August 26, 2017

Welcome to my garden state of mind with today’s lush, colorful look for day and night. The ’90s was a time of high-top sneakers, velvet chokers, and loads of denim. While we wouldn’t like to revisit some of the trends (ahhh, the acid wash!), there’s plenty that we’re glad to see making a comeback this year and one of them are the floral print cami (slip) dresses.

GREEN DESERT

August 22, 2017

I am not afraid to take risks when it comes to color and style – my clothes are a form of my creative self-expression. Pleats – a trend that has always been a must-have. Who does not own at least one pleated garment? Nowadays in every woman’s wardrobe, the pleated dress, skirt or top has become a timeless piece. Thanks to the early 90s and the genius designer Issey Miyake that, with his pleats line, gave us the practicality to throw dresses, jackets and suits in our suitcase, without having to iron them afterwards.

SUMMER HEAT

July 31, 2017

“A woman’s dress should be like a barbed-wire fence: serving its purpose without obstructing the view.” – Sophia Loren

I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. For this post, I am wearing probably one of my favorite summer dresses ever, which is almost sold out everywhere, only few left here. I used to hate the color red when I was a child and a teenager, but apparently some tastes change and do get better as you get older and you grow out of habits, then you hit a plateau.

SUMMER WATERMELON SALAD

July 4, 2016

It’s fresh, healthy, easy and super quick. This is quite simply the most delicious salad you’ll try all summer for a lazy lunch at home or as a take-a-long to your office or to a summer garden party!

This salad reminds me my beautiful childhood and our long warm summer days. I grew up in Southeast Europe – Kosovo, and my hometown is approx. 2 hours away from the Adriatic Sea. So, you can imagine the humid continental climate with Mediterranean and oceanic influences that makes the central Balkan Peninsula a perfect region to cultivate this amazing fruit.

MYKONOS BLUE

May 25, 2016

Summer is just around the corner, but for me it has already begun in Mykonos last week. Now that the weather in Europe is bitchy and I keep complaining all the time, but after a relatively warm April, going back to wearing jackets and jeans in May feels a bit strange!

TOUT BLANC À CANNES

September 9, 2015

This summer was all about off the shoulder crop tops, paired with a high-waisted skirts and all-white-looks

For me this summer was everything about off-the-shoulder and high-waisted skirts, and this trend will continue this fall as well. Ending up with a sophisticated style that I have embraced in both casual and formal settings, with the right amount of sexy meets sweet, the style feels just as right for a summer soiree as it does a beachside lunch. Summer’s whites reflect a pick and mix of influences, and what really counts is the craftsmanship: fine materials and delicate cutwork elevate this kind of designs from pretty to infinitely precious.

Based on the latest post about Tiara Miramar Beach Hotel, I was also invited to visit Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, another of the hotel’s sister properties. Its magnificent views over the blue sea and the intoxicating scents of its manicured gardens gave me the real well-being.

Probably Europe’s most romantic hotel, has been already secured first place in the ranking of the most romantic hotels in Europe in January 2011, also awarded from TripAdvisor when they Travellers Choice Awards 2012 under 25 best hotels in France. The Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, is a boutique hotel with unique charm, nestled in the seaside town of Théoule-sur-Mer, it’s a haven of peace and tranquility.

Overview

Embraced by the vibrant blue colored Mediterranean sea and dominated by the Esterel range, the Théoule-sur-Mer region is a land of contrasts. Sea and mountains nestle naturally. For those headed toward Cannes, Théoule-sur-Mer is the first commune in the Alpes Maritimes. A former fishing port, the charming maritime enclave is now home to no fewer than 4 yachting harbors. Locals are highly attentive to the quality of life in this still relatively unknown corner of paradise thus assuring a prestige destination. In this unspoiled setting, delicate pine-wood scents surround The Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur.

Rooms

The 5-star Hôtel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur has 21 rooms and suites. All rooms are decorated in luxurious oriental chic decor and delightful touches. The Superior Rooms offer cosy and spacious surroundings. Every guest experience a wonderful scenery in Côte d’Azur flair of refinement and total relaxation. Every room has a wonderful sea overview and these are unforgettable picturesque views that will always stay on your mind.

Food and Drink

We were able to spend a day at the Hôtel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, to sunbath by the hotel’s infinity pool and to enjoy the 5-star “L’or Bleu Restaurant“. This restaurant is a true celebration of the Mediterranean sea and sky, stunning tastes with unique ingredients. We had an unforgettable dining experience hosted by Chef Guillaume Anor.

With a spectacular bay view on the most glamorous terraces, the gourmet restaurant at Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur was an unforgettable night. For dinner I choose the starter “Shrimps in Cocktail Style, with fruit tartar, basil and spicy Guacamole”, companioned with the main dish “Loin of Lamb wrapped in Kadaif and baby purple artichokes” – my personal favorite, and cherry on the top the sweet note “Roasted apricot, rosemary flavored, crunchy tuile with apricots”. Everything was mind-blowing delicious and a wonderful dinner experience!

Beauty Center & Fitness

The Hotel Tiara Yaktsa Côte d’Azur, ensures the well-being of the guests. The hotel’s beauty center is a perfect place to relax with a personalized selection of massages. With signature Sothys body care treatments sooth the spirit. You can choose from manicure, to waxing or a make-up session to complete your personal care. The fitness center faces the bay yet is shielded from the terrace overlooking the hotel pool.

Résumé

The moment I entered Hotel Tiara Yaktsa, I knew it’s a special place. Greeted by blue skies and yacht-dotted seas, there’s an earthy Moroccan theme in harmony of wood furniture and terracotta tiles. Impressed by its gorgeous gardens, the elegant restaurant, and staff who welcomed us like a family. Clearly, the “L’or Bleu Restaurant” was the best restaurant I have ever been before. The taste of the food and the visual setting of every dish was just spectacular. You should choose to spend your days and nights at Tiara Yaktsa , that will everyday take your breath away.
