Ravishing Riviera

Good morning, lovelies! Hope you're all having a wonderful start to the week. Mine's wonderful and as dreamy as ever.

Ever since the lovely Christel contacted me a few weeks ago about filling in with a guest post while she was vacationing on the Côte d'Azur, my mind has been overtaken by visions of the Riviera. I've been to the Italian Riviera before, to a lovely little town called Camogli years ago, but I've always dreamed of making my way on over to the French Riviera. Perhaps that will be an alternative to my other possible holiday destination, Majorca.

Either way, I don't think we can go wrong. All I know is that, we have to make a decision and start planning soon!

Enjoy your day, sweets!

xoxo

I don't care which riveira it is, as long as I get to go there! (c; Nothing but fabulousness...I think the Italian Riveira would be my first choice...just because Italy is my #1 place to go visit! Have a great day, dollface, good luck on that decision, that is going to be tough! (c:

I would love to vacation there - it looks so beautiful. There is something about water that is so soothing to my soul.
Much love,
B

Steph said...

Ooo, I want to be there.

Katie said...

Beautiful :) Definitely makes me wish I was on vacation instead of laid up at home!

Vanessa@Luxuria said...

French Riviera is gorgeous, but they are having a really cold summer this year. I would stick with Mallorca (but I would say that wouldn't I?) ;-)

Lindsey Regan Thorne @ be pretty said...

OH girl after seeing this I'm back on cloud9! We just returned from Negril Jamaica and it was so peaceful and beautiful! Now, your making me long for another blue water vacay! xoxo

Mrs. C said...

So beautiful! We went to Monte Carlo and St Tropez for a day each on our honeymoon and I loved! We stayed in Positano Italy for a while and that was heaven! Nothing like laying out with a glass of Prosecco in hand. Oh take me there!

Julip Made said...

Ohh they all sound fantastic! I just spent a good hour browsing Eurorail coming up with combinations for the Boy and my hopefully possible trip to Portugal, Spain and France next year. Now my mind is wandering more!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Even with the tourists I still love the Cote d'Azur - best thing is to rent a nice house in the Provencial hinterland for peace and quietness. I think I even prefer this to Mallorca. xoxo
