A PEACEFUL WEEKEND AT HOTEL PALAFITTE

A few weeks ago, my friend Romina from the Blaastyle blog and I were lucky enough to be invited to spend a night in an unbelievable hotel, the Hotel Palafitte in Neuchâtel, less than one hour from Lausanne. Let me tell you – to give you even more the desire to go there – that this Hotel is the only one in Europe built on piles, and some pavilions are even located directly on the lake (sounds like a dream, doesn’t it ?) But the most incredible part is the rooms and the breath-taking view on the lake (and of course…

MORNING COFFEE

FR « L’ART DE REUSSIR SA JOURNEE, C’EST DE MIEUX LA DEMARRER » Nescafé Dolce Gusto A l’occasion de ma collaboration avec Nescafé, je profite de partager un détail plus personnel que mes looks, mon addiction au café! À mon avis, il n’y a pas de secret pour bien démarrer sa journée… c’est d’avoir un bon café (en plus de ses heures de sommeil)! Première chose dès mon réveil, je me dirige, en mode pilotage automatique, vers ma Nescafé Dolce Gusto. Je met ma capsule “Cappuccino“ et regarde  couler ce nectar dans ma tasse favorite. C’est mon rituel matinal – sentir l’odeur de…

FREITAG AD ABSURDUM @MUDAC

Few days ago I was fortunate to attend the opening or rather finishing the Freitag « ad absurdum » exhibition at the MUDAC museum in Lausanne. It was a pleasure to meet all Freitag team and especially the two Freitag brothers, Markus and Daniel.

The four brothers share an attitude and certain basic principles in their work: actions focused on resources, the pleasure of social interaction and a way of thinking and acting based on the idea of…
