My favourite men watch

On last June 30th, Omega – partner brand of the blog <3 – has launched an atrium in Printemps, « Omega loves Printemps », dedicated to its watches while celebrating its 27th participation as the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games, which will take place in Rio 5-21 August this year. The big launches of the night were the changes in Seamaster Planet Ocean collection: all of its watches are now certified with chronometer for diving.

Starting with the Caudalie spa, in which I’ve tested the classic Modelage Caudalie, which is simply à tomber! It tones the muscles and energiez the body, very good. Overlooking the étangs (lakes), the location is really privileged by silence, nature and the Caudalie products … I’ve noted a huge ten! In the evening I went to test Le Corot (name of one of the first Impressionists), restaurant with a macaron in Michelin. Guided by Chef Rémi Chambard, which prepares dishes that look like paint screens. I opted for the tasting menu « Menu en quatre étapes » with …

A box para mamães de primeira viagem!

Eu sei que existem box aos montes: de miniaturas de produtos de beleza, de delícias gourmands, de artigos para pets, de bijoux e até de queijos (!!!). Mas essa ideia de criar uma para as mamães que acabaram de dar a luz foi uma boa (sobretudo porque ninguém pensa nelas)! A My Little Mum Box (uma colaboração de My Little Paris, um dos sites franceses mais cutes de todos os tempos, com a marca Bon ton) vem com cinco produtos de beleza, quatro acessórios e um livro de endereços para kids; tudo isso por 29 euros aqui.
