Well… after a lengthy day, 2 days of traveling, we finally made it to Europe. The 9 hours of jet lag definitely has me feeling a little funky but I knew that going to the ocean today would be the best thing to get me feeling energized again.
No surfing for today, just enjoying the lovely waves, the sun and the beautiful Côte Basque scenery. Some days, it’s nice to be a beach bum, I rarely get the chance to just lay by the beach so I’m making the most of it!
Excited to be heading to the #ProAnglet surf competition later this week. Got any recommendations for the Côte Basque? Send them my way!
Happy Friday everyone! Excited for a relaxed weekend at home before the Canadian Music Week madness begins! I’ve been hiding from the rain all week watching all the latest episodes of Kitchen Nightmares and also the amazing new season of Anthony Bourdain‘s Parts Unkown. If you’ve watched some of his shows before, you know that Anthony Bourdain’s shows are beautifully shot, feature some of the yummiest food and some of the dreamiest locations in the world. The latest season of Parts Unknown is no exception. As someone with a serious case of wanderlust, watching the show just makes me want to travel even more! The latest episode on Lyon, a place I’ve had the pleasure of traveling to (I even ate at the same place at Bourdain – Comptoir Abel!) is magical! Also watching it with Offner, a Lyon-native made it that much more special. I’ve grown really fond of anything Bourdain does and highly recommend watching any of his series (No Reservations, The Layover and Parts Unknown). The first two seasons of Parts Unknown are available on Netflix. This Sunday – it’s Mexico!! Can’t wait!
For today’s outfit, I’m dressing down a beautiful white flower silk blouse from Zara with black skinny jeans, beige ankle boots and a few dainty gold rings.
Stay tuned Sunday for a brand new 5 Questions With interview! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
My obsession with all-things southwestern is apparent today in my daily outfit. I love this aztec print top that I found last year in a little store in Vermont. Also, as part of the swag I ordered from Forever 21, I purchased a super cute thunderbird and faux-stone cuff that I absolutely love. Lately, I’ve been considering getting a thunderbird tattoo, I love what it stands for. It says “The thunderbird is a legendary creature in certain North American indigenous peoples’ history and culture. It is considered a “supernatural” bird of power and strength.” I realized that I’ve had a thing for thunderbirds for quite some time now. I have many accessories and decorations with thunderbirds around my house and in my jewelry box… That and all of the day of dead skulls I’ve been bringing back from Mexico. Two of my favorite things! My apartment is also a mix of Mexican-inspired art/decor mixed with some southwestern items. The perfect blend!
Wishing you all a great long Easter weekend!!
