Since this summer, I have been addicted to colouring books, or at least one that I got while in London. So when I had the opportunity to discover Johanna Basford's The Secret Garden Journal before its release on the 16th November, I thought I had to. 

And I was right !

More of a journal than a coloring book, The Secret Garden Journal yet includes more than 70 small images from the original Secret Garden colouring book, inspired by the flora and fauna that surrounds Johanna at home in rural Scotland. 

Decorated with intricate and hand-drawn pen and ink illustrations, the beautifully produced hardback journal also is the perfect decoration for a coffee table or a chest of drawers as it features gilt edging, a ribbon marker and gold foil embellishments...

Skin Absolute Day

After Skin Absolute earlier this year, I recently discovered Filorga's dey version of the anti-aging cream: Skin Absolute Day. Contrasting with the previous version with a bright white colour, this day cream with its snowy texture promises to help us rejuvenate at the speed of light, with a key ingredient: white sapphire.

Why? Because this global anti-aging cream has a formulation that harnesses the power of light to help prevent aging and improve skin texture.

Because life goes on and life is about sharing, I am happy to be back online and share with you one of the most beautiful things I have seen in the past days, and that can be admired at London's Claridge's hotel: the hotel's 2015 Christmas Tree, designed by Burberry's Chief Creative Director and CEO Christopher Bailey.

It's the restaurant everyone is talking about: Le George, the latest addition to the Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris food & beverage offering. 

Led by chef Marco Garfagnini, Le George adds a refreshing, urban and modern - shall I say revolutionary - touch to the rather classical cuisine of the world famous Palace, besides Le Cinq and La Galerie.

I remember trying « La Vie est Belle » for a few months back in 2012, before it was launched.

Now a bestseller (the number one selling fragrance in France, and number two in Europe), « La Vie est Belle » gets a special treatment to mark the 80th anniversary of Lancôme in 2015.

New month, new beauty essentials on The Parisian Eye: it’s all about having a clear, clean skin and starting to think about Christmas travel supplies!

ClarinsMen Shampoo & Shower

This hair & body cleansing gel gently cleanses hair and body, invigorating and toning the skin with energizing Bison Grass and Chinese Galanga. The 2-in-1 formula also conditions the hair with Provitamin B5. Finally, it has a mood-lifting effect too, with refreshing plant essences that soothe.

Who doesn't know the LV City Guides ? Since 1998, Louis Vuitton has been sharing its unique take on the world through these guides , offering a careful selection of addresses chosen with originality and just a touch of bias.

The end of the year sees four completely new cities added to the collection: Bangkok, Chicago, Prague and Rome and, for the first time, a mobile App available as of November 2015.

It is interesting to see how digital has become a basic thing in our lives, and how classic retailers keep innovating to adjust their offers to our needs.

Sometimes, those retailers predict those needs, and create new trends. This is precisely what happened this week in Paris, as Sephora introduced a disruptive new offer in the rather conservative beauty industry, with the opening of its first connected concept store showcasing the bridges between physical and online channels.

For more than 270 years, Moët & Chandon has been known and loved as the champagne of success, boldness and dazzling style: it's Moët & Chandon that introduced champagne to the world in 1743.

Renowned as one of the world’s most loved champagne for over 270 years, the Maison ends the year in style with the launch of MCIII. 

This completely new champagne is the ultimate heightened, hedonistic experience: a luxury breakthrough creation.
