April favorites

April came and went like a fine unnoticed breeze.

I started the month in Mexico City to shortly after finding myself on another transcontinental flight to  South of France. We spent lovely days visiting  La Cote Bleue´s  cute fishermen towns with landscapes and life scenes worthy of a picturesque novel. Two weeks later we were packing again, this time for our move to Marrakech, of which I already told you about here.

April faves

- Sunny, breezy days spent at tiny Carro (pronounced carró), located in the Côte Bleue´s famous calanques. Our favorite non touristy village du pecheur near Marseille.

- Photo shooting Daniela Pacheco at her studio. Sweetest photo shoot ever. Hardest job as well.

- Carnitas tacos at El Parnita in Mexico City.

- Bougainvilleas in bloom through whole Marrakech, making this pretty city, impossibly prettier.

- Vegan soul food in Mexico city by Los Loosers. Hearty, delish, eco-friendly vegan lunches delivered to your place by super cool bikers. And did I say delish?

- A weekend spent at a private riyad. Personal buttler included. I felt like a princess.

- Made some decent Mexican chicken quesadillas for our Riyad´s host. My hubby loved my Guacamole.

- La Koutoubia´s appel à la prière, from our suite.

- A lovely chat with Miss Speculoos. Check the interview here.

- More than 15,000 friends on Pinterest and 17,000 on IG. Gosh, gracias!
