Two things I love are starting to evade from our landscapes: old Mediterranean houses and ...postcards! So I decided to please myself with both in one shot.. Freshly published, the Beirut Series postcards, my snapshots of little corners in Beirut that are disappearing completely. In fact some of these don't even exist anymore. Well at least they're captured now, and you can even write on them:-)

A few days ago I went with a wild friend on a wilder shopping spree in Rue St Honoré, where you can find a high concentration of the latest trends in fashion, design and food: Great fun for taste buds and soul!
We started with a soup at Higuma ; full spicy energy refill!
And then we went on to discover the new AESOP boutique, Australian herbal power... The boutique itself is in splendid Aussie wood, and the citrus fruits hydrating balm was just as splendid!
We continued towards uno de 50, silver spanish accessories, also new on St Honoré: If you're looking for a statement piece, that's where you should look!
After that, Colette was just too much.. Too much people, too much attitudes... I think too much hype kills the hype, no?
So we decided to play it low key and try the new fruit dips at Godiva with a lovely iced green tea "desert des tartares" at Café Verlet... Mmmm!
The end of a perferct afternoon...
