Since it was introduced at this year's Baselworld, I've loved the very special Mademoiselle Privé Embroidered Camellia Watch line. For the very first time in watchmaking, diamonds and fine pearls have been embroidered, thanks to the know-how of the House of Lesage, who have been embroidering elaborate designs for all the top names in haute couture and fashion for almost a century. 

In this masterwork, fine pearls stitched with gold and silk threads, rose-cut diamonds, flakes of gold and gold seed-stitch form precious camellias on ink-black fabric. A real prowess, achieved by the embroiderer’s exactitude and precision to fit the embroideries into the extremely thin watchcase. Each dial is an exceptional and unique piece.

Over the past month, I have had the pleasure to discover and share news about Hermès' latest watch creations. Exciting news is coming now if, like me, you enjoy learning about exceptional jewelry. For the first time, I have the pleasure to introduce Hermès' Haute Bijouterie (High Jewelry) new line. 

For the past six years, Hermès has trodden the path of metamorphosis, step by step, asserting the style of its Haute Bijouterie designed by Pierre Hardy.

I immediately thought of a destination I had never, believe it or not, visited: New York.

My knowledge of the States was, until now, limited to the West Coast (where I have been on multiple occasions: Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Palm Springs), and Chicago for my first time ever in the country back in 2009.

Although most of my summer had been planned already when this incredible opportunity came in, I managed to find a few days mid-August to discover the Big Apple.

Brut Selection Gold by Champagne Gremillet

To celebrate Christmas and the New Year in style, champagne house Gremillet  launches a limited edition of its non vintage brut. A sober and chic gold bottle, limited to 1000 units only. 

If the package is very nice, what’s inside is quite nice as well, with a combination of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. Subtle and refined, it surely calls for a unique tasting experience.

This year, Printemps Paris, one of the most famous Parisin department stores, worked with Burberry to bring some British Chritsmas magic to the city of lights.

Burberry ambassadors Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne unveiled the windows of the store - becoming digital this year under Burberry's impulsion, earlier this month.

It’s this time of the year when Sephora delights us with a new, full range Christmas edition of their famous bath line. This year’s limited edition theme is simply called “Bath Party”.

The collection provides an exclusive, festive and totally addictive fragrance with notes of bergamot, ylang-ylang, peony and patchouli.

Located in Paris' Marais area, Hotel Bourg-Tibourg is a neo-gothic hotel designed by Jaques Garcia. 

With is particular decor of clover patterns, red-and-brown striped-tissues, XIXth century engraving and Viollet Le Duc chandeliers, Hotel Bourg-Tibourg has an atmosphere of its own.

The hotel soundtrack is also part of the atmosphere. This December, a best of this sound track will be available as a luxury vinyl set at world-famous Paris store Colette.

The past 2 days have been quite busy for Sotheby's France, with major sales going on. If the atmosphere for the Photography sale that I attended Friday was quite exciting, it seems that the Man Ray sale of Saturday was a definite success too.

It is no secret that fall and winter can be tough for our skin... So here are a few beauty products I discovered recently, and are worth checking to help your skin make it through the upcoming weeks!
