It's Thursday night and it's aperitif at the legendary Café de Paris.
So get down there right now, live music and drinks await you with a great little crowd to boot and boost.
We love Emilie.
We met her through Caroline, our favourite yoga teacher ever, as she happens to be her sister.
What a family.
Emilie set up the Nourishing Box a few years back with the great idea that people need to be fed, organically and in a well balanced way. But people often really don't have time to prepare healthy meals and detox the way they should.
Hence the creation of her company, that makes great lunchboxes and meals that can be delivered to your DOOR in the Basque Country and the Landes. Better still, Emilie also does the catering on venues and yoga/fitness retreats.
We at InHossegor adore her lunch boxes and a special thumbs up for her invigorating smoothies and raw food balls.
Check her website out www.thenourishingbox.com. We highly recommend you try her food and detox packs out.
We all run out of ideas of what to do with our youngest on weekends and holidays.
So instead of sitting in watching your kids watch the gogglebox or colour in the walls, take them to a place where kids RULE.
Grenadine et Crayonnade is a place small to medium kids where every type of personality can have fun. From the creative drawing on the wall space to the Building Site and Toy space to the teeny weeny little kid space, we like it here. Organised, safe and there is EVEN an area for mama and dada to sit and have a proper cup of coffee and cake.

We love this communal street art project.
Tomorrow, all day, on the beach in ONDRES, go paint and fill in a giant street art creation with the artist Celine Chat.
Bring the kids or go solo, this is worth going to even if you don't want to paint but just want to see what comes of this giant painting. Celine has already prepared the canvas, now it's up to all of us to fill it in.

Having been introduced to Cecile at yoga, I really wanted to try her massages. Being sporty I often feel the need for my muscles to be kneeded and looked after as all I seem to do is stress the life out of them.
So Cecile was kind enough to offer me a session. She comes to wherever you need to be, is discreet, professional but above all, she really really knows her stuff. I came out after an hour feeling rested, positive and the next day my muscles felt like gold again.
I asked for a sport's deep tissue massage but she can also do relaxation, she can concentrate on certain sore points like your back or legs. Cecile is a trained reflexologist too.
Finding a good massage therapist isn't always easy. Finding a professional and friendly one is even harder. We highly recommend Cecile, who spent 15 years in London so speaks fluent English as well as her native French.
So if you are sore, in need of some time out, relaxation or even to work on certain points, Cecile is the one to call.
