I recently went to an event in the Salon Bellevue set up on the top terrace of the Cafe de Paris. ‘Sophie In Monaco’ was kindly asked by the Copurchic girls hosting the Puttin’ on the Ritz event to be a sponsor (how exciting!), it was a pleasure to attend on the blogs behalf and enjoy the evening with everyone. There were many surprises throughout the soiree including singers, dancers, a men’s fashion show, live art and after dinner a dj spinning tunes all night long.

I was having a monochrome phase and decided to dress up my favourite MyAnnika bandage dress (currently on sale!) with some gorgeous black fur from Carlo Ramello Monte Carlo, a fun Skinny Dip London perspex clutch, Chanel watch and my Carmen Steffens pumps.

Join me tonight in Monaco this time for a “DANCE WITH DIESEL” event in their Diesel Monaco shop at 18h00 on 15 rue Grimaldi just behind the main port.

An evening full of surprises awaits you so come and say hi!

I had the pleasure of attending my second inauguration of a Carmen Steffens Boutique last week, this time in Nice just off Place Massena. You may remember I was very recently at the launch of the Carmen Steffens shop in Cannes (Here) where I first discovered the popular Brazilian shoe brand and took home my first pair of their shoes. I headed to Nice in the early afternoon by train, which if you haven’t done before definitely do it, the journey down from Monaco follows the coastline and on a sunny day its quite scenic. I had a meeting before the Carmen Steffens event so hurried down to the Promenade des Anglais while doing a bit of window shopping and then returned in time for the opening.

One of my favourite things I have to admit about being a blogger and taking an interest in both fashion and beauty is that I get to find out about new and exclusive brands like “House of Thara”. Being British I also feel I have a certain duty to brag about the best things that are created there ;) House of Thara is a niche luxury fragrance house which is part of the Dragon Group, drawing upon 20 years of experience sourcing precious metals and jewels in the most exotic and remote corners of the world.

I was kindly invited by House of Thara to the St David’s Day dinner held at the Hotel de Paris here in Monaco to present to Princess Charlene her own perfumes and to support her charity the “Princess Charlene Foundation” which helps children through sport and swimming training internationally which raised a grand 75,000 euros that evening.
