Moroccan Iphonographie

Hello there, thanks for stopping by today! I'm so sorry for the missed posts. I was very tired and a bit sick when we came back (we had to take numerous taxis, buses and trains under the insane heat, before stepping in the chilly air-conditioned plane, which resulted in sore throat and exhaustion).

Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few Instagram shots of my trip before getting back to normal schedule (expect a DIY round-up tomorrow!).

1. I fell in love with our hotel room - it was an absolutely perfect mix of modern design and moroccan traditional interior decoration. I definitely want a dark gray bathroom one day.

2. Sun bathing, swimming, reading, and doing nothing had never felt so good.

3. I took a moroccan cooking class and bought some spices to put what I've learnt to good use. I'm hoping to share a recipe here soon!

4. The streets were full of tiles in shades of blue and purple. Gorgeous!

I had a fantastic vacation, and feel like I really needed a break to be back on track. I'm so happy to be back here now (I kind of missed you!). Hope you have a lovely day! xo, Clemence

    Lovely tiles too, Moroccans know just what to do with blue!

  11. A cooking class in Morocco? Great. I love the spices. After our last visit in Morocco we bought a large Tajinepot that can be wonderfully put on the charcoal grill. This works quite fantastic.

    1. "Le douar des arganiers" in Sidi Kaouki, a small village near Essaouira. I couldn't recommend it more. It's gorgeous, perfectly clean, and the owners (a swiss woman and her moroccan husband) are the sweetest. http://www.douardesarganiers.com/en/
