Monaco – My Love!

Bonjour My Friends!

It is been a long break for me from blogging. I really missed it all =) and glad to be back!

How have you been doing?

We came back from our trip to Cannes and Monaco last Saturday and things were pretty rough in here! But first things first – i loved, loved and loved Monte-Carlo. It is so chic, so taken care off city! Every step of it is like a living a dream! We visited Monaco Yacht Show and i was pretty immersed by the luxury of boats for sale.
