Thalassotherapy At The Thermes Marins Spa 

Sparkling Happy New Year to everyone! Here’s a post that is specially aimed at those who have eaten too much chocolate, champagne and whatnot … during the holidays : ) And also to travelers before a long haul flight.

Invited by the luxurious Ayana Resort and Spa, I had the pleasure to experience a thalassotherapy at the Thermes Marins Spa of the Ayana, just few hours before flying back to Europe. The goal was to prepare the body for 25 hours travel (plane and stopovers included).

Throughout the course of care that lasts 2 hours in the Aquatonic Pool, a huge pool of 700 liters of the Indian Ocean’s water, I am guided by a member of the spa staff that shows me the jets to use. I guarantee you that I felt my muscles worked deep (sometimes it was a bit painful), while enjoying a direct sea view, in a pleasant golden light of late afternoon. Happiness!

I came away softer than a mollusk, LOL! Extremely relaxed and a bit euphoric! Honestly, if I had had more time, I’ll be stayed even longer! I usually have the swollen legs and back pain in the plane, this time I slept like a new born.

A Drink At The Famous Rock Bar

Even though I am late because of the spa, no way not to make a short stop at the Rock Bar of the Ayana Resort and Spa. People can stand in line more than an hour to have a seat at the sunset time.

I know, it’s insane, but the location is great with good music! Even crazier: after sunset, the bar empties. For me, the best time is the dusk, when candles are lit and the ocean gets darker … But I gotta run to the airport, bye bye beautiful Bali!

Antwerp: Spring-Sum 2015 Trends at The UPR Press Days

Antwerp-UPR Pressdays-Club Med Lunch-Chef Pascal Devalkeneer-1-Photo Mademoiselle Le K-copyright 2014

I left early in the morning without knowing …

Arrived in Antwerp, I waited and waited for the bus … almost one hour! Note that by walking, it would have taken half an hour max! On the bus after two stops, the driver asked us to get out because he ended his service and invited us to choose to wait for his colleague or take another bus, explaining that today there was the strike. 

I chose to walk twenty minutes under a drizzle that ruined my hair! When I finally arrived at UPR, nearly 2 hours late, I had a scarecrow head! Big thanks to the new hair products (completely ineffective) I’ve tried the night before to have the impeccable hair!

Never mind I’m right on time for the lunch organized by Club Med, for the presentation of its new Spring-Summer 2015, along with the CEO of Club Med Belgium and Luxembourg, Hadi Kamouh and his team. On the photo montage below: No. 1, the new catalog of Club Med.

The dishes cooked by the starred chef Pascal Devalkeneer are really delicious, my favorite: a dish consisting of thin slices of octopus (photo above). While the sommelier Eric Boschman is horrified seeing that I drink Coca Zero. “When you want to return to civilization …” he says to me serving me a glass of wine, LOL!

As I almost exclusively communicate through the Internet,

I have little opportunity to meet the people I work with. So it is always a pleasure to go to press days and put a face to familiar names : )

And of course discover new collections and labels that I didn’t know, such as Rado and Bell & Ross watches, the German brand Dorothy Schumacher, with simple lines and beautiful materials. And the Luz jewelry, really trendy.

On the photo montage above: No. 2, suspense! The beautiful Sam Edelman ankle boots, very soon in one of my fashion posts. No. 3, the Swarvoski necklace with 700 mini cristaux very soon in an upcoming post on a series of selfies I realized. And No. 4, the Ferragamo beautiful sunglasses, very Dolce Vita.

As you know I am a huge fan of sunglasses

And beauty: shortly on the blog, my new tests of l’Occitane products. I also had the opportunity to test the famous Sopolish of Pronails. Stickers to put on nails, on which the polish is applied for a perfect finish for three weeks! Without damaging the nails. To remove the polish, just remove the stickers!

Since the stickers and nail polish were applied (one week), my nails remained perfect! With my usual polish, after 2 days, it’s a disater. On the above photo montage: No. 1, the different sizes of stickers. No. 2, stickers placed on the nails, before limiting. No. 3, the ultra glam and flashy red that I chose. And No. 4, the catalog of the beautiful Spring-Sum 2015 collection of the Swedish brand Philippa K.

Bangkok Tree House, The Eco-friendly Hotel

Thailand-Bangkok-Tree House-3A-Photo Mademoiselle Le K-copyright 2013

After several days of an itinerant blog trip in nature reserves, 

I spent two days in Bangkok Tree House. Epic arrival in a motorized small boat stuck in the mud, filmed by the show “Follow Me” for Thai TV channel! So glam! Honestly after hours on the road, endless waiting at the airport, the aircraft, traffic jam in Bangkok and now the vase added to a moist heat (I liquify): I don’t really want to be filmed ! The art of being a travel AND fashion blogger ; )

The area is far from the center 

and I feel heading to the end of the world when reaching by the bamboo pontoon. I really liked the architecture and eco-friendly concept. The small hotel of eight rooms, is divided into several blocks partially covered with large mirrors, bamboo, paintings of artists (below) and lush vegetation (photo 6).

The owner and staff are very welcoming. The place is hype. Before discovering my room, during the filming of “Follow Me”, I begin a short interview with the producer and host, Dr. Nathasedh Top Poonsapmanee (photo 5).

– In “Follow Me”, I’d like the Thai to see places where they never go. Today Bangkok is colorful and a mix of tradition and new generation.  

Where to eat and drink in Bangkok?

– Go to Sukkumvit area! Bo.Lan is a renowned Thai restaurant, run by a couple of chefs, Bo and Dylan (Sukhumvit Soi 26). Grase, a bar and nightclub (Sukhumvit Soi 49). And Level, club and lounge (Sukhumvit Soi 11).

What about Thai young designers? 

– For women: Vic and Asava. For men: Grey house and Closet.

The + of the Bangkok Tree House 

The eco-friendly and sustainable concept: congrats ! The architecture and decoration both organic and design, are great too. The atmosphere and the staff are very cool, it feels good immediately. The neighborhood, 100% Thai immersion. 

The – of the Bangkok Tree House 

The hotel is on stilts, at low tide you can see all the rubbish of the Chao Phraya river and it is not pleasant. Maintenance: ants invasion on my bed and clogged toilets in my room. The restaurant.
