If I had to make a list of the most luxurious places I’ve ever been too, Monaco would definitely be in it. Between the high quality shopping options and the five stars hotels, it is the place where the jet set crowd from all around the world reunites during summer time to party and enjoy fancy cocktails at the Jimmy’z. Get your party dresses out and put some lipstick on it, the game is on.

I’m not the kind of person who tries to fit in a mold wherever I go, I usually like to play on my rules and kind of follow the other path. It’s kind of psychological, I think I have a trauma… because I always tend to feel pressured to actually do things differently. The more casual people dress, the fancier I want to look. The more extravagant, the more I try to under dress. I’m just that kind of freak… BUT, Monaco did make me want to put my game on and just enjoy this incredibly posh lifestyle, if even only for 48 hours. My inner Grace De Monaco kind of resurrected in me.

Staying at the hotel Hermitage, lunching at the hotel de Paris and then enjoying the view of the Monte Carlo beach club, Louis Vuitton heavily spoiled us. We were giggling of happiness like rosy little piglets. Not to mention that Monaco is the place for instagramming. It just seems like everything, at every angle, is photogenic. From the rooftops, to the actually ground, to the food : everything was so meticulously prepared, with so much care and attention.

I highly suggest you guys to discover Monaco if you ever have the opportunity.  Don’t stay there for too long though as it’s a very small city with not that much to do, but it’s so cute and fancy, perfect for a short week-end to enjoy the beach, the clubs, the restaurants and the spa treatments with your friends or just as a romantic date! As always, enjoy this Instagram Diary, you can follow me on Instagram (@kristina_bazan) or my partner in crime James (@jameschardon) for our live updates!

Lovely photos!!! I love your looks and comments to your photos on instagram.


I have followed your journey daily by instagram, it seems as if you had loads of fun! You’re the luckiest but you really deserve all those experiences :) xx

Why do you post “The instagram diary” if you already have an Instagram widget on the right side of your blog? I really don’t understand. Do you want us to see the pictures twice?

Looove the shots Kristina! I agree, Monaco is nice but I wouldn’t want to stay there for a whole week (except when I had zillions on my bank account haha). Could you pleaaaase do an article with how you edit your instagram photos? I never get mine to look like this! I’m sure you have many followers who would love to see that article :) Thanks! xx

Les deux paires de chaussures que tu portes sur les photos de cet article sont vraiment très belles. Totalement différentes mais chacune à son style. Et il faut vraiment que j’apprenne à manger comme toi ! Tes assiettes font beaucoup plus saines et jolies qu’un assiette avec un gros hamburger !!

Beautiful photos. You look gorgeous in all of these and I just adore your pictures. You see an incredible beauty in everything!
