Hi everyone and happy first day back for those of you who went back to work this morning!

I hope you all had great holidays, and I wish you success, good health and happiness all around for 2014!

I’m writing to you from the Acela Express today, the train that links Boston to New York. Due to the blizzard on the East Coast of the US, my flight coming in from Miami was rerouted from LaGuardia airport to Boston’s… the perfect time to test my new year’s resolution of thinking positive (…..)! So there you have it, after a 5 hour flight, 3 hour wait in the plane and 3 hours of sleep last night, I’m on the train and as I’m writing to you, I’m taking in all of Massachusetts’ beautiful landscapes outside my window…!

This year, one of my life long dreams came true: to visit another South American country. I had only known Brazil, where I lived from 2009 to 2010. My trip started in Argentina, where I spent 3 days discovering Buenos Aires, then 6 days by the ocean in Uruguay, and most recently at Punta del Este, the Uruguayan St Tropez.

In Buenos Aires, I visited the antiques quarter of San Telmo, my first afternoon there. I then went for an iced coffee break at Tortoni, an institution established at the start of the XXth century.

That night, I had dinner in an Argentinian meat restaurant in the neighbourhood of Puerto Madero that follows the Rio Plata river. The restaurant is called Cabanas Las Lilas and I highly recommend it if you’re ever near by!

The next day, I was off to Ricoleta where I went for a stroll through a little market (of textiles, mostly). I also went to visit the famous cemetery near by, that is up to par with the Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris, and where Eva Perone rests.

The picture where I’m posing in front of a pale pink building is called Casa Rosada; the “home” of the government. I’m wearing floral print shorts, an LF tee, The Row by Linda Farrow sunglasses and a Valentino bag!

The last day, I explored to colourful neighbourhoods of Palermo and the Bocca, where Tango dancers teach tourists the first few basic steps!

I then headed north, towards the Uruguayan beaches of Punta del Este! I stayed in a little village called José De Ignacio. On the menu: walks by the water, tastings of profuse amounts of Dulce de Leche and reading ( The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair– great suspense !). PS: On the beach pictures, I’m wearing a turquoise dress bought on the beach in Sardaigna. The other light blue one comes from a boutique called unday StTropez, and New Years Eve, I was wearing an Alaia dress and Gianvito Rossi heels from the summer 2014 collection.

I should leave you as my computer is almost out of battery. Lots of love and I’ll write to you once back in New York.
