PrincessaPetra x #BeKindForReal #TheSun Exclusively @ Inveraray Castle

Hello, sweethearts!!! 👑

Welcome back to another splendid Royal Endeavors episode regarding my fabulous adventures in Scotland, dedicated to the ancestral home of the Duke of Argyll, Chief of the Clan Campbell and the iconic, must-see visitor attraction on the West Coast of Scotland – the one and only marvelous Inveraray Castle. 

Inveraray Castle has been the seat of the Dukes of Argyll, chiefs of Clan Campbell, since the 18th century. A visit to this Gothic revival style country house gives an incredible insight into the history of the Campbells, once the most powerful clan in the Highlands. There’s amazing art everywhere, from the displays of Campbell family portraits through history to the lavishly painted interiors. You’ll see work by Thomas Gainsborough, John Hoppner and French artists Girard and Guinard, whose only work survives at Inveraray. 

Perhaps it was the French artistic touch and the baroque glamour of the interiors, the exquisite china and Highland ghost stories that fascinated me instantly when stepping into the extravaganza of this Royal residence, but that is not surprising at all considering the fact I was only surrounded by Art and Beauty. No wonder this envy-inducing castle has been selected as one of the 10 magnificent castles to explore in the old country of Scotland by CNN, precisely on National Tartan Day.

QueenP, Your Hypeness

Princessa Petra 052

– Barry W. Procter (Barry Cornwall), The Nights.

Bonjour, mon amour!

Welcome to the Crowning Scene Supreme of Your Royal Hypeness – QueenP – which takes place in all of her glory on the legendary premises of Vila Katharina Boutique Hotel in the one, only and most exquisite Sapphire Room – a discreet and silent room which distinguishes itself through the classy furniture, dominantly made out of brass, with a bed inspired from the famous 1930s model of the Savoy Hotel in London, yard view and an impressive bathroom that displays carrara marble, cast iron bathtub, painted Vasarely-style.

As much as I would love to “mumble” about my lovely outfit “for hours” following the “style” of so many irrelevant online entities with pretentious endorsement velleities – I do what I want. That’s the whole point of living the life of your dreams – being free to think, act and speak in the manner that you please – don’t miss it.
Compromise is not an option as I certainly cannot promote a product which does not interest me, flatters my persona or I simply don’t or won’t use.
Let’s take whiskey into consideration for a second – darling, I am sipping on Martini Asti. That’s my all time favorite – sweet and bubbly! Vichy? You mean L’Occitane Divine – just like me. Oh cool – why would I Armani Perfume while I’m getting high on my House of Dimener – Petra Paitici 014 supply? MAC Cosmetics? Sorry, I’m Too Faced for it. My choices reflect my standards and the quality of my living. Please let’s all stick to our basics and not falsely “educate” the audience into becoming consumerist clones lacking personality, with no idea on how to think of and for themselves. That’s rather far from the idea of luxury most virtual entities into the blogging stratosphere aim to – in my never humble opinion – independently of the money involved into promoting such things.

I’ve seen you, beauty, and you belong to me now, whoever you are waiting for and if I never see you again, I thought. You belong to me and all Paris belongs to me and I belong to this notebook and this pencil.
– Ernest Hemingway

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Following my Royal Path into the coeur of the City of Love, I have decided to enchant you with a distinguished and versatile selection of three incredible locations which I wholeheartedly recommend to visit while you’re on vacation in my favorite city in the whole wide world ever since my first trip at 11 years old, which I have been visiting yearly and dearly for the past 5 years.
It will probably come to you as a total surprise I haven’t seen these luxurious places before, therefore I am more than flattered to share my precious experience with you, which aims to provoke and inspire you to follow my lead deep down into the Heart of the City of Romance.

No matter the weather, keep it in your mind there will always be something absolutely mesmerizing about Paris to surprise you, whether you’re in for a little treat (I mean trip) or you’re a well established resident of this global center for art, fashion, gastronomy and culture.

Whoever does not visit Paris regularly will never really be elegant.
– Honoré de Balzac
