DIOR One Essential City Defense SPF 50

“One of my favorite sunscreen, this invisible shield protects the skin for up to eight hours from toxins and sun damage thanks to its triple anti-pollution action and UVA/UVB filters. It also acts as a makeup base to deliver youthful-looking radiance. I apply it 15 minutes before going outside and take it with me to reapply during the day for optimal protection.”



“Mojitos are my go-to cocktail during the summer. They are perfect for those hot summer days where cocktails turns into diner, and diner turns into late nights.”


RAY-BANS Aviator Classic

“I never leave the house without sunglasses, so of course you’ll find me wearing my favorite Aviators on a terrace. Still one of the most iconic and timeless sunglass models in the world, this pair of sunglasses with the gold frame are one of my favorite accessories to complete any look once the sun is out.”

SHISHEIDO Extra Smooth Sun Protection Lotion

” Terrace is synonym for me of long exposition to the sun and some sweaty moments that have nothing to do with sexy time. Which means using tons of sunscreen to defend my skin against powerful UVA/UVB rays. This lotion fullfils this mission without leaving my skin greasy with a “I just took a butter bath” kind of feeling.”



“I have a thing against super sweet drinks, especially during summer. What I want is something fresh that I can drink easily without feeling like I just chugged a pint of something that reminds me of coconut body lotion. My go-to drink is everything gin based that includes cucumber and some lemon.”


COLOURPOP  Ultra Matte Lipstick in Creeper

” All I am asking from a lipstick when I am in the mood for drinks is to stay on place long enough for me to try many options on the menu, without looking like I just made out with my glass. This one by the trendy brand Colourpop is perfectly pigmented and give the impression that I just paint my lips with ink. No joke.”

“Terrace season often implies a lot of walking. What’s better than wandering around the city after a few margaritas? There’s only one caveat: pick out a comfortable pair of shoes! After a great love affair with sneakers and an array of faux-enstocks, I’ve moved on to mules. They’re super comfortable, modern, and, will add a pinch of sophistication to any outfit.”


OLIVER PEOPLES + THE ROW After Midnight Sunglasses

“Because squinting causes wrinkles and UV damaged eyes aren’t something to look forward to. Protect yourself, people! And round sunnies are just plain cool.”



“Sunscreen is not enough, pom-poms are fun, and I often do inappropriate things in public. Hiding my identity is a must.”
