Chicoteando

chicote-entrada

Today I want to share with you a must address in Madrid: the Museo Chicote (Gran Via 12 Madrid)
The Bar "Chicote" was created in 1931 by Perico Chicote, barman at the Ritz Hotel, it was the first cocktail bar in Madrid;  83 years later it remains a benchmark of the capital nightlife.
Now it continues to make history and for the first time they have started to serve food, with a menu with tasty and original dishes, perfect for "chicotear" -Shake something vividly, as with a whip.  
We started with a "creamy croquettes of Iberico pork cheek" and "red prawn carpaccio with truffled eggs and macadamia nut"
Alexis, Raul and Aaron, recommended us to fusion it with the cocktail "Moscow mule" (Vodka, Ginger Beer, Lime Juice and Sugar) and we understood the true meaning of "chicotear" =)
Our favorite dishes were the "oxtail burger on stout brioche and special sauce with crispy potato" the meat is cooked for six hours to acquire a unique texture; and "wild sea bass tartare with caviar sauce, pistachios and toast payesas"
And for dessert? Mascarpone Panna Cotta infused in red fruits, accompanied by one of their new cocktails, the "Caspian".
It is open Monday to Saturday from five in the afternoon until three o'clock in the morning,  and Sundays with a special Brunch with a Dj session to begin the week with energy.

This weekend I have lived a magical night in the gardens of the Palace of Versailles.
"Les Grandes Eaux Nocturnes" is a summer event where all fountains are turned on at the immense garden of Versailles, accompanied by music and lighting carefully.
A 2 hours walk between groves, orangery, colonnades, enceladus and fountains with music as "The Bocanne primitive" and multiple lighting effects. At the end of the walk, lovely fireworks put the finishing touch to the evening.
I really felt like a princess, with my blue lace dress from ChicNova, perfect for the occasion =) As always, a wise site to purchase. It is a very elegant yet comfortable dress. I combined it with jeweled sandals, Armani Exchange bracelets and my clutch "Tomorrow I will quit caviar" from Petite Mendigote.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. kisses,

Châteaux de la Loire – Chambord


Today I bring you a post with many ,many pictures to show you our last trip to the Loire Castles .
We stayed in Blois , a city to 2 hours away from Paris , located on the banks of the Loire River . A strategic point to visit the different castles of the Loire.
On Saturday we visited the famous castle of Chambord . It is one of the most famous castles in the world due to its Renaissance architecture , which combines medieval forms with classical Italian structures . It was built as a hunting lodge for King Francis I in 1539.
Walking through its halls, and all the rooms made ​​me feel like an authentic medieval princess. The tower and especially the double helix staircase , were so fun, and you have to be careful if you do not want to get lost.
After the visit we made a picnic in the gardens next to the river Cosson , and we still got some time to visit the city of Blois.
I choose a country outfit to match the castle. I love the lacy trend , and it seems that my grandfather, who is a visionary , love it as well: he gave me these lacy shorts and this vest. I love them! They are very comfortable and gave you a chic look . I combined them with a brown shirt with ¾ sleeves and a maxi collar , for a touch of color. In the morning , the weather cooled off , so I used my maxi fur vest to protect me from the cold ; and to be protected from the sun , flowered sunnies and  this straw hat with ears, I fell in love as soon as I saw it.
Hope you enjoy the pictures. Thank you so much for your comments !
