Winging it

“To be honest, I’m just winging it. My life, my eyeliner. Everything.”

– Hotel Des Arts Saigon –

And she says: “Yes, Please.”

Pinch me, I’m dreaming!

Having a lush time in Vietnam with the Les Rives cruise.

 When I think life won’t get any more beautiful …

Here comes the sweetest butler from the Reverie Saigon with a bottle of champagne…

And she says: 

“Yes, please.”

Fairytale hideaway

I could never in a 100 winter escapes get tired of this hotel room at Inkaterra Machu Picchu Pueblo. When I was told Pharrell Williams also stayed at this suite, I almost went on instagram to ask him which side of the bed did he sleep on! xo

The best way to wrap up a one-month life in Buenos Aires? Go spinning on an old-timer with your coolest friend in town, and photograph the windows7-desktop-kind-of-blue sky with my eyes for the very last time.
