Bonj Les Bains

A few years back at the airport I picked up a copy of Condé Nast Traveler.  As usual browsing through I think we all dream of running away to at least a few of the places we discover in them. But this was something different. When I saw Bonj Les Bain  it became more like an obsession. I needed to go there. I had to go there. I was dying to go there. Now I have been! Doesn’t it feel amazing checking things off your bucket list? Sam and I spent our whole first day in Croatia on one of these luxury beach beds being served wine and lunch, lying in the sun and jumping in the incredibly beautiful water to cool off. It was like a dream, better than I imagined my perfect beach day would be. I feel like it’s been years since I spend a whole day by the sea in the sun, salt in my hair, sun on my skin. It’s one of the best feelings in the world.

In the pictures is my Bel Air beach bag, vintage Emanuelle Kahn sunnies, and my favourite American Apparel swimsuit. I’ll share more with your from my trip really soon. In the mean time I hope all of you are having a magic summer and checking something off your bucket list, or just spoiling yourself a bit. You deserve it. Let’s talk more on facebook, twitter, and tumblr this week! Kisses to you wherever in the world you are!
