Haute Pic in Bonaire

Living in the moment with a smile!

Haute Thoughts

The universe is constantly talking to us through intuition, Godwinks and serendipitous moments that show us something about our lives. I know for sure that when you fail to listen, it will get your attention one way or another. 

You always know when your life starts to veer off course... that it's time to assess what you're doing and who you are most connected to on a daily basis. Relationships are key to where your life is taking you. People come into your lives for a reason, there's always a lesson attached. 

Spending time in mediation and connecting with the Universe is key to understanding the unfolding of your life.

Slave Hut on the island of Bonaire stands as a silent reminder of the past.

Haute Day at the Beach in Bonaire

My winter escape took me to the charming little island of Bonaire. It's one of the ABC islands (together with Aruba and Curacao) off the North coast of South America... nestled in a Western crescent. 

On this day, I spent some time on one of its tranquil beaches at the luxury resort Harbour Village. It's the perfect weekend getaway for those who want to get far away from life in the city.

Most people come here for water sports like diving, snorkeling or wind surfing, but I love to sit on the beach and think about how to live in the moment, reflect on lessons learned and prepare for a future full of abundance. I'm a Pisces girl, therefore sitting near the ocean offers me the right kind of energy to recharge and renew my mind body and soul.

Haute Meetups in Paris at Shangri-La Hotel

One of my favorite places to meet friends and enjoy lunch in Paris is at the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris. It's beautiful and full of life with "old world elegance" and amazing views of the Eiffel Tower. It's also just a stone's throw from exclusive fashion designers along Avenue George V and Avenue Montaigne.

If you want to spend the afternoon in Paris in a place that requires you to show up haute, then plan to spend your day at the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris.
