Cannes Day 1

Hello from lovely Cannes!!

The past few days have been romantic, delicious, relaxing, and sunshine. I don’t care if sunshine isn’t an adjective, it belongs on the list. In fact, don’t be surprised if I start randomly ending sentences with the word sunshine. Because, ahhhhh, sunshine :)

B and I are staying in Cannes for 10 days. We have a big balcony that faces the ocean, and we’re a 30 second stroll from the sea. Our flat is tiny but the tiles on the floor are refreshingly cold and the furniture is a happy holiday yellow.

I’m going to keep my Cannes updates short and sweet, and let the pictures do most of the talking.

Day one in Cannes consisted of beach time, getting to know the local neighborhood, and eating the most exquisite pizza I have ever tasted. Seriously, if you’re in Cannes you NEED to try La Pizza.It was an awesome day and I’m already falling in love with this adorable little city. x

  1. Ohh I am sooo watching out for your French escapade! 10 days @Cannes sounds amazing :) Good enough to know the place inside out, and with your camerawork- for us as well :)
    La Pizza check!! I wonder if they have overseas outlets as well. Else it will have to wait a couple of years :( Please look out for some vegetarian joints there as well- gets difficult to eat out at times, you know…

    Lovely pictures, as always and thank you for putting them up here for us.
