We could have travelled between Palm Springs and Los Angeles in one go, but we decided to stop halfway and spend the night at the Motel Wigwam in San Bernardino ! I really love kitsch motels !! (but the Madonna Inn is still my favourite ).
Til tomorrow !
I’m carrying on with my California trip …
We are in Palm Springs ! One of our favourite cities, to Mathieu and I ! It’s the 3rd time we go there ! Our fave hotel : the Saguaro ! Remember, it’s the place where I took the pictures with my donut-shaped pool float, it was 3 years ago ! The heat is still so unbearable and the atmosphere still so cool !
Today, I invite you to discover in my company the new Tiffany store on the Avenue des Champs Elysées that I visited before its official opening on June 10 next, 3 storey where I had the opportunity to play princess and had a «Breakfast at Tiffany’s».
Be it an engagement ring with a amazing diamond or more affordable fashionable collections, not to mention the Gatsby collection or the legendary bracelets worn by Jacky Kennedy, I tried them all on !
My favourite picture is the one on the stairs ! A spiral staircase with an impressive ceiling light.
Last time, I set a little puzzle about a black and white thing that looks good and will change the way we go shopping … ( Well, it made me laugh to read « ultrasound scan » in your answers ^^).
So, the answer was this puzzling QR code we can see now almost everywhere for years. I see them everywhere myself but I never think of scanning the code because I can’t say it interests me very much.
And that’s where Comptoir des Cotonniers is entering onto the scene with this concept that speaks to me a lot : each QR code becomes a potential store. The name of the app that allows to read the code is Powatag ( I can only invite you to download it ).
For the launch, CDC has the exclusiveness of this concept, in a few months, other brands will take part in this adventure and in theory, if all goes well, in 10 years it will be quite usual to scan a bus shelter to buy a tee shirt there !
Voilà, another new step in the evolution of the internet ( and of course, you can find below my outfit presented as tags … )
This is the wonderful light we discover early morning ( as I haven’t slept a wink all night, I was awoken at sunrise). The morning light is just as beautiful as the evening light, but different. I’m wondering if I would be able to tell a difference between both when I see my photos without knowing.
We took Mathieu’s pictures at that time. Til tomorrow for the rest of our trip
After criss-crossing wonderful remote roads, we arrive at Joshua Tree National Park. We already went to the park 4 years ago, when we did our very first road trip. As you might imagine, we never get bored of visiting the american national parks.
In the middle of nowhere, we hired a small lodge from AirBnB. We arrive there at sunset and it’s just breathtaking. The night quickly falls and it was strange, I feel like I’m in a movie, the coyotes yelp, the slightest breath of air startles me and what if a mad man comes nearby with a chainsaw ?
Really strange, but paradoxically I loved the atmosphere, between the magic and anxiety.
We leave Vegas to get to Joshua Tree National Park. Roads in the American West are the most beautiful and it’s a real pleasure to drive.
Today, I’ve a little riddle to share with you ! It’s black and white, it looks good in a picture and … that might just change one’s habits in the next decades ! I’ll give you the answer on May 28 !
Well, well, speaking about a cute little back and white thing, who looks good in a photo … You certainly have recognize Léon ( yes, in person ^^) Comptoir des Cotonniers’s mascot. It’s my first collaboration with this legendary make and what’s more for a world exclusive. It’s an amazing experience to have been able to discover CDC ( to their friends ) and get to know them better, soaking up the brand’s DNA and make it my own ! So, see you on the 28th.
Can I send Léon 50.000 kisses for you ?
