Grand Pigalle Hotel, Paris

Grand Pigalle Hotel in Paris

I usually stay with my sister when I go to Paris but last week I spent one night with my friend Catherine at the Grand Pigalle Hotel. I hadn’t spent some time in Pigalle since I moved to London 19 years ago so needless to say that the area had changed a lot. South Pigalle (now called SoPi by hipsters) is a great district that has a lot to offer. So if you’re looking to spend a few days in Paris or feel like trying a district you’ve never been before, I have created a handy Jauntful map for you with all my favourite addresses in South Pigalle (see below) including cool fashion and second-hand shops, design shops and places to drink, eat and sleep. You can also download my guide as a pdf here.

Bohemian luxury on the island of Mykonos

Bohemian luxury on the island of Mykonos

Dreaming of Summer by the beach? Let me take you to Mykonos…you won’t regret it! Spread across a peninsula flanked by Kavos and Paraga Beaches on Greece’s Mykonos, the Scorpios beach club has just landed at the top of my bucketlist. With its natural, boho vibe, the place exudes Summer and me-time at the beach. The wood and natural tones are simply gorgeous. I have been lusting after these Shezad suspensions since my last trip to the Maison & Objet trade show in Paris and while they are probably too big for the bedroom I want to revamp, this smaller suspension would be a great alternative to introduce a natural, carefree vibe to the room. So what do you think? Do you fancy going there too like right now!?
