Sunsets in Deauville

I love my alarm in the morning. – Now thats something you don’t hear often! But when your alarm is as cute as mine I am sure you would feel the same way! My morning alarm is a little panda licking my face until I wake up! Whats a better way to start your day then to open your eyes and have this little thing staring at you! – He is ready to start another happy and careless day!

When you walk around in Deauville you can feel the summery atmosphere. While wondering through the tiny streets filled with bakeries you can smell the fresh bread. When you walk past the harbour you can hear the seagulls while fisherman unload their daily catch. Everything gives a sense of calmness, of happiness. This is a place where you sit down on a terrace, and just endlessly watch people walk by. You will notice that each one of them has their unique style, but show similar vibes. There is a restaurant opposite the harbour in Trouville named Le Central where you can enjoy a freshly caught fish while enjoying your view and watch people walk by. It is the perfect location and they serve the dishes that Deauville is so famous for! Their amazing fresh fish!

The restaurant is also extremely close to the beach, which means you can have an evening walk while watching the sky turn orange and witness the sun disappear in the sea. Deauville has the most stunning sunsets. It is the landscape and the surroundings that makes it so unique and breathtaking.

If you don’t want to go home yet make a stop at the most delicious ice-cream place named Amorino! They have an amazing selection of flavours and are beautifully presented! There is also a very large dairy free selection! Which are absolutely delicious and flavoursome! – Try the sorbet hazelnut, you will long for more and more!

Summer nights are my favourite. A late night swim is the perfect way to end the day feeling fresh. Cooling your skin down from the hot sun. As you step out of the cold water you can feel the warm air hugging your skin, making you feel drowsy and cosy. The sun is down, the moon comes up. Its another beautiful night in Deauville. You can hear the birds sing into the night as you lay in your bed. Facing the window you see the stars. I close my eyes, and think “I cant wait for my alarm in the morning.”

My favourite places in Chelsea

 

I have been living in Chelsea for almost a year now and have explored every little street! It is an amazing place and especially now the summer is finally here it is prettier than ever! Roads are full of gorgeous and colourful houses, flowers are blossoming, cafes are opening their doors, it’s just buzzing with excitement! Early morning walks as well as late night walks through Chelsea are my favourite! – Especially those late night walks ending up in my favourite ice-cream shop near Sloane Square!

Let me guide you through some of my favourite places in Chelsea that you definitely should give a visit next time you are in the neighbourhood!

Juicebaby Chelsea

 

First stop, Juicebaby! These smoothies are just mind-blowing! They have an amazing menu with each smoothy sounding better than the other! – It is impossible to choose in this place! I will never spend less than 10 min staring at the menu debating whether I should just get them all. At first you might think they are a bit pricey, however, they definitely give you your moneys worth! The smoothies are rather large of size and the ingredients are very high quality. Also they are not the average smoothie you would make at home. Each one of them has some kind of special ingredient in them! You should definitely go and try them, trust me you’ll be back soon enough craving for more! Have them in the morning, as breakfast, as a post or pre-workout or even as a snack! You’ll love it!!

Soya cappuccino, The Ivy Chelsea Garden

 

Next stop, coffee! Now to many of us coffee is our best friend in the morning, afternoon or even at night after a nice dinner! And one of the best places I recommend you to go and have a coffee is at The Ivy! Not only do they have good coffee, the place is also amazing! On a nice sunny day go and sit in the garden at the back of the restaurant! It is so pretty you wouldn’t want to leave! You will be drinking your coffee being surrounded by flowers and palm trees, while you can hear the sound of water clattering in the background from the small fountains. It’s magical.

Noodle salad, Phat Phuc Noodle Bar

 

My all time favourite place to go for lunch is a noodle bar named Phat Phuc! (I know right, I couldn’t stop smiling when I first heard the name either!)  This is a place not many people know about as it is slightly hidden on Kings road. But as it is rather small it is quite hard to get a table around lunch time! Nevertheless, the service is incredibly quick and trust me the food is so delicious that you won’t take that much time to finish it either!! – Which means it does not take extremely long when waiting for a table!

The bar is located outside and you will be sitting in what almost feels like a tent, its extremely cosy! The people are really friendly and as I said the service is super quick! But, most importantly, the food is just incredible. Every single dish is fresh and hand made! (which you can definitely taste!) The flavours explode in your mouth and leaves you longing for that next bite! They use a lot of ingredients which makes every dish special and unique! Honestly, everything on the menu is amazing. But there are two dishes that I cannot get enough of! In the winter I love getting the warm and cosy vegetable laksa, but in the summer the fresh noodle salads are just perfect!! Pictures nor words do this place justice, you will have to taste it yourself!!

Amorino

 

Last but definitely not least! Go and get yourself a well deserved ice cream! (Yes everyone deserves to enjoy the best ice cream in London!) Amorino is located on Kings road and is honestly my favourite ice cream place in London! They have incredible flavours and a large selection of sorbet ice cream! (Perfect for the vegan’s under us!) Not only does it taste amazing, they also manage to make it the prettiest ice cream in London! When you order your ice cream on a cone they create a masterwork by making your ice cream in the shape of a flower! It’s almost to pretty to eat! But too delicious to resist!
