4 October Favorites
Hello girls! We are here with another post of the week. Like every month, we bring you what have been our favorites for the month of October. You know that we are always delighted to share with you the products that work best for us, series or movies that have hooked us or restaurants that we cannot stop going to. Ready? Let's start!
A place? Bordeaux
We recommend you visit the city of Bordeaux, which stands out for its good gastronomy (although we do not lack that in Spain). We advise you to visit the fashionable neighborhood: Chartrons . It is a bit far from the center but it is the place to be with a gastronomic commercial offer that you should know. One of the streets where there is the most atmosphere is Rue Notre Dame , a perfect fusion between gastronomy and shopping where you will have to see Village Notre Dame , a 1,500m2 antique gallery. A store that we love? Do you speak Francais , a store that combines the best of French fashion, beauty and decoration. Ideal to take something home with you...!
Another place that you should know is the Place du Marché des Chartrons , where the locals meet on weekends to enjoy good oysters and good wine in the bars that the square has.
To have drinks? We recommend L'Alchimistre Gintoneria, Le Cancan, Café Bellini and L'Apollo if you want to listen to good music.
Sites that few people know about PARIS
Art with few tourists around, dreamy streets and patios, period restaurants... We are going to discover some places in the city of light that you may not have known about.
LE TRAIN BLEU: It is a restaurant from 1900 that transports you to the Belle Epoque with dishes made with local products and a very traditional French service. ( www.le-train-bleu.com )
OFFICINE UNIVERSELLE BULY: For French women this place is like a temple, and for its beauty too. We already told you about how Parisian locals take care of their skin and how they wear their makeup ...well, here you can find up-to-date classics of French cosmetics. ( www.buly1803.com )
MUSEUM OF ROMANTIC LIFE: Girls, if you are a romantic of life, this is your place in Paris. It is the house of the painter Ary Scheffer and brings together many of his magnificent works. Their tea room is the highlight. ( www.museevieromantique.paris.fr )
CAFÉ KITSUNÉ: This café is hidden inside the gardens of the Palais Royal and is a true wonder. If you are one of those who likes to have a tea or a coffee surrounded by nature, you will love this place.
Girls, one thing that we have tried and that we have loved is www.tellevamosalagloria.com
It is a travel agency but not the kind you may be imagining. The agency is specialized in tailor-made health tourism and we believe that it is an excellent opportunity to balance body and mind through programs that include healthy therapies. For example, if it is difficult for them that you lead a life with a lot of work and that you suffer from stress, they will organize a de-stressing trip for you. They are magnificent and very nice!
A pumpkin recipe
One of our star recipes when autumn arrives and the temperatures drop is the sautéed pumpkin with vegetables and rice….It is to die for! We show you a little how we have done it.
1. Sauté the vegetables that you like the most and add some seasonal mushrooms.
2.Then, dice the pumpkin and add them.
3.While they are sautéing, cook some brown rice.
4.As a final touch, add some raisins and leaves of fresh herbs.
A trend: The animal print
We cannot avoid talking about trends, even in posts as favorites, but we must include the animal print trend, one of the ones we are seeing the most in street style. Leopard T-shirts, snakeskin skirts, animal print cowboy boots... We believe that the fun thing about this season is that we have the power to combine and mix all kinds of animal prints and you will also know that you will not be doing ridicule.
The garment that we like the most to wear animal print are skirts. Why the skirts? Well, we find them super versatile, you can wear a basic t-shirt over it or a silk or velvet blouse and it can be super elegant and sophisticated for an evening event.
We leave you a photo of the Chloé skirt from the new PARIS collection , which is already becoming one of the most acclaimed.
Well girls, so far our favorites of the month! We hope you liked them as much as we did and if you visit Bordeaux or one of the recommended ones in Paris, don't hesitate to share it with us on social networks.
