Bohemian has many different definitions but the general meaning is a movement of artist and poets in late 19th century France, especially in Paris. Bohemians believed in living outside of the bourgeois (conventional, middle class) mainstream culture. Bohemians were against the Salon (the institution that controlled the literary and art market in France until the turn of the 20th century)and believed that art and literature should be radical.

Bohemian style is about doing things your way, away from convention and its all about self expression and creative energy. Creating your own style using recycled or finding things on a shoe string means also creating magic from the mundane.

Chicfinds August Summer Holidays


Oops, I forgot I no longer live in Europe and so August is no longer my vacation time. What a shame! I am so jealous of all my friends as they go on vacation now and the big European cities become ghost towns while everyone exits to go find some fun, sun and love.

My top 5 are Formentera, Sardegna, Greece, Ibiza and France….Formentera is one of the gorgeous Pine Islands south of Ibiza. It has the most splendid beaches and the waters are crystal clear. The beach culture here is so sensual and relaxing with white sands, sunsets, bars on the beaches with sounds of famous DJ’s. It is still a very natural island and possesses a certain magic. You have go there to know what I mean. For the latest on what’s happening in Ibiza take a look at this informative blog by Maya Claughton.In Greece I would recommend Pathmos, Mykonos and of course Santorini. The islands are magnetic, dynamic and so beautiful you will never forget the energy and forces that you experience when you go. The rhythm is so relaxing you will take no time in feeling like you are a part of its irresistible nature.

Sardegna is the island that takes you captive. Its waters, sands and coast line are unique and so breathtaking you should go around by boat (around the Costa Smeralda). You will be hypnotised by this island and its sensual beauty.Of course there is the Cote d’Azur, but a little secret jewel undiscovered by many is the Ile du Levant. It is a nudist island but you are not forced to be naked. You can enjoy the most sensational nature on this little island with the many scents of the most luscious vegetation surrounded by the sparkling Mediterranean. The hotels, restaurants and brasseries are all of a very good standard and add to the chicness and sheer elegance of this tropical and magical paradise.

ChicFinds Hot air balloons

Beautiful things

They are enchanting and exude freedom and joy and on Friday 343 balloons dropped from the skies over the Chamble Bussieres in Eastern France to break the world record for taking off at the same time. What a spectacular site.

Balloons of any type are such a sensual shape and the hot air balloons also inspire color and a sense of air and escapism. Happy days. X
