Monaco never sleeps…

 No, I don’t mean the night life. Here, people very much like to get their rest in order to get ahead with their busy lives the following day. But one thing, that one can rely on in Monaco, is the enormous number of events constantly taking place one after the other. If you ever move to Monaco and are worried about what you will do here, rest assured, there is plenty.

 There are constant fairs, shows, concerts and of course sport events and once again it is a ‘no’, I am not referring to the Rolex Masters Tennis Tournament, nor the Formula1: Grand Prix de Monaco.  Monaco has a rich cultural side to it, in addition to the museums, and multiple parks such as the Japanese park and the Jardin Exotique, Monaco is host to many exhibitions including those by renowned artists, authors, and other major collections, including those from within the Principality, in fact. Back in 2008 there was an impeccable exhibition of the late Princess Grace of Monaco’s personal handbag collection, which had left me speechless. The reason I recall this particular exhibition is my weakness for the mostly Hermes handbags that were showcased at that time, many being the Kelly bag which in question was named after the Princess watch my video The truth about Hermes bags on LifestylepopTV.

 The Grimaldi forum hosts events for fashion, and performing art lovers, and likewise for the intellectuals of Monaco. Just this past April, I attended the 8th annual Monte-Carlo book fair, it was a magnificent event with authors of multiple genres, I even picked up a few books for my daughter, which she was ecstatic about, and I made a beautiful acquaintance with a brilliant woman, author and a mother, who in fact showcased her book “The International Mothers of Monaco” at the book fair. You can watch my exclusive interview with Valentina Selvaggia Di Gaspari. Realities of living in Monaco!

  In July the same Grimaldi forum will be hosting a Christian Louboutin exhibition, which will be running over July and August, so many of the fashionistas visiting Monaco will most likely be happy to know they can enjoy a bit of history from their favorite shoe designer and lots of Louboutin Insta feed is coming your way this summer peeps!

 Of course, Monaco would not be Monaco without the Sporting Club. And while it hosts a multitude of events including the famous Red Cross Ball, which I personally attend yearly, it is also host to the Summer Festival – it is actually called the Sporting Summer Festival. Various massive artists come to perform at the Sporting and over the years I have happily attended concerts by Sting, Seal, Alicia Keys, Cirque du Soleil, Rita Ora, and many other huge names make their way to Monaco to perform at the most prominent and luxurious concert hall in probably the whole World, if maybe surpassed by the Dolby Theatre and even then, I doubt that. This year’s lineup is very promising – Alicia Keys is back to keep on falling with her Beethoven playing grand piano, following up with the Black-Eyed Peas coming in, to BOOM BOOM POW the SBM and of course the queen herself Christina Aguilera will overpower the sound of fireworks with her unmatched vocals. I cannot wait for this year’s SBM summer festival.
