Friendship without borders: Laura Van de Vorst

the-world-of-bergere-tea-place-hamburg

My friend Laura is the kind of person that inspires me and I’m glad we met during our studies in Copenhagen. It didn’t take us long to bound, it was obvious we had a lot in common. She appeared to me as an inconditional dreamer, an adventurer (she lived in Australia, Denmark, Holland and Italy) and optimistic with a constant smile on her beautiful face, but also a hard worker with a rather authoritarian lifestyle, at least I thought at first. You can imagine, with my typical French eating habits, I was meeting for the first time a person following the Paleo Diet: «Whaaaat? You don’t eat baguette?» Eventually she taught me all her healthy secrets, while still partying until dawn, and today I thank her for that.

After she graduated with a Master’s degree from the Copenhagen Business School in Innovation and Entrepreneurship, she naturally started pursuing a degree in Nutritional Medicine. As co-founder of healthcoachFX, an Online personalized health coaching, and blogger at The Green Tribe, she aims to “inspire, empower and connect wellness-seeking warriors with simple, delicious and earth-worthy ways to live better every day”. Today, she set up home in Hamburg (where we took the pictures) with her loved one and her yoga mat and she keeps following her passion of storytelling while trying new delicious recipes to share with you on The Green Tribe.

She’s wearing a coat from Vanilia, a cool brand from Amsterdam.

Mon amie Laura est le genre de personne qui m’inspire et je suis heureuse que nous nous soyons rencontrées lors de nos études à Copenhague. Il ne nous a pas fallu longtemps pour s’entendre, nous avions beaucoup de similarités. Elle m’est apparue comme une inconditionnelle rêveuse, une aventurière (elle a habité en Australie, au Danemark, en Hollande et en Italie) et une réelle optimiste dotée d’un sourire constant sur son beau visage, mais c’était aussi une bosseuse avec un mode de vie plutôt autoritaire, du moins je l’ai cru au premier abord. Vous imaginez, avec mon alimentation typiquement française, je rencontrais pour la première fois une personne suivant le régime Paleo: «Whaaaat? You don’t eat baguette?» Au fil du temps, elle m’a appris tous ses secrets d’un mode de vie plus sain, tout en faisant la fête jusqu’à l’aube, et je l’en remercie aujourd’hui.

Après avoir obtenu son Master à la Copenhagen Business School en Innovation et Entrepreneuriat, c’est tout naturellement qu’elle poursuivit un diplôme de médecine nutritionnelle. En tant que co-fondatrice de healthcoachFX, un site de coaching nutritionnel personalisé, et bloggeuse pour The Green Tribe, elle a pour but d’inspirer, de valoriser et de connecter les fous de bien-être avec de simples, délicieux et respectueux moyens de vivre mieux au quotidien. Aujourd’hui elle a posé ses valises à Hambourg (où nous avons pris les photos) avec sa moitié (également un jeune entrepreneur) et son tapis de yoga et elle poursuit sa passion de narratrice tout en partageant de savoureuses recettes avec les lecteurs de The Green Tribe.

Elle porte un manteau Vanilia, une super marque d’Amsterdam.

In the streets of Aix-en-Provence with…

In the streets of Aix | The World of Bergère
Last week I spent few days in my beloved South. It had a wonderful time as always. At last I could feel the sun and the heat on my skin (NOT exaggerating) and I was lucky enough to be able to wear a bikini, lay by the pool, and do absolutely nothing but read a good book! I wanted to come back to Paris with some colorful pictures to give the blog a little summer feeling.
Now let me introduce you a fellow blogger. This talented, smart and beautiful woman is the voice behind Le chat et moi on est content. She writes about life, love, guys, good and bad moods… basically you’ll find the answer to all the female questions you’re asking yourself daily. She’s an excellent writer; it’s bitter and humoristic, light but not shallow. There is a good dose of girly, a statement against bad guys, and mostly pride of being who you are no matter what other think. That’s the spirit! We took some pictures in the street of Aix-en-Provence, little nest where we met and place of many crazy nights. Now she lives in Lyon and recently she regained her freedom after spending 3 years on her thesis. She’s tough! And brave. Congratulations Doctor(love)!

La semaine dernière je me suis accordée une pause dans le sud que j’aime tant et comme toujours c’était fantastique. Pour la première fois j’ai senti le soleil et la chaleur sur ma peau (PAS du tout exagéré) et j’ai même eu la chance de pouvoir me mettre en maillot, larver au bord de la piscine, et ne faire absolument rien si ce n’est lire un bon bouquin ! Je tenais quand même à rentrer à Paris avec quelques photos colorées pour donner une touche d’été à mon blog.

Maintenant laissez-moi vous présenter une autre bloggeuse. Cette femme talentueuse, belle et intelligente est la voix qui se cache derrière Le chat et moi on est content. Elle écrit à propos de la vie, de l’amour, des mecs, des bonnes et des mauvaises humeurs… bref vous y trouverez les réponses à toutes ces questions de meuf que vous vous posez tous les jours. Elle a une très bonne plume ; c’est amer et humoristique, léger mais pas superficiel. Il y a une bonne dose de girly, un coup de gueule contre les mauvais garçons (pour ne pas dire les connards) et surtout un sentiment de fierté: soyez vous-même peu importe ce qu’en pensent les autres. Bon esprit ! Nous avons pris quelques photos dans les rues d’Aix-en-Provence, ce petit nid ou nous nous sommes rencontrées et un surtout (un lieu de débauche absolue) ou nous avons longuement aperoté en refaisant le monde. A présent elle vit a Lyon et elle a récemment retrouvé sa liberté après trois ans passés sur sa thése. Elle est courageuse ! Félicitations Docteur(love) !

Five things #2

Five things I really love right now: emma-watson-headshot

At the last Golden Globes Awards, we’ve seen Emma Watson on the red carpet wearing an astonishing backless red dress from Dior. But what really caught my eyes was her “discreet” Dior pearl earring, also known as “the lone lob” earring. I absolutely love that simple piece of jewelery. Paula Cademartori

Over the last two fashion weeks, fashionistas have been carrying the Paula Cademartori colorful bags and it didn’t go unnoticed! In fact, there is a true originality in each pieces with unique color assemblage. The designer has been studying in Brasil and now lives in Italy, now I understand where the exoticism come from.

Each season, Prada amazes me with more original advertising campaign. It is one thing to print ad in the magazines and make it visually artistic, but the brand also masters the new media and has a strong digital presence using as main support, YouTube. Here you can see the colorfulness of their Spring/Summer 2014 advertising campaign. It’s powerful and catching attention, perfect combination to make people want to share your content on social media. quinoa-chia-porridge-with-stone-fruit04

Recently I have changed my eating habits (because winter killed me) and became aware of new ingredients beneficial for me that you don’t find in “traditional” food. I’ve started looking for vegetarian recipes and I found this amazing blog : Tales of a Kitchen is the kind of digital place where you want to spend each of your meals and ask Chris to teach you how to cook like him (or just move to Australia). It looks so healthy and tasty. It is full of flavors, colors, original addition of ingredients and basically everything to make you feel powerful and fit. No the vegetarians are not sad and boring people!

Anders Petersen is THE photographer of the year. Born in Sweden in 1944, he became well known with the photographic story Café Lehmitz (1975) and kept on the successful path. He won four prices including best photographer of the year in 2003 at Les Rencontres d’Arles. I went to see his exhibition at BnF in Paris this year and I had a huge crush on his work.
