I went on a little romantic getaway to Milan for 48 hours during Valentine's day. This was my first time in Milan and I fell in love with the energy of this city. It is not for nothing that it is called the fashion capital of the world, everyone is so well dressed which gives you plenty of fashion inspiration. Its beautiful architecture, amazing quality of food and stylish people in streets will not disappoint. DAY 1 Morning: Walk around to the city to the magnificent five hundred years old cathedral the Duomo. The earlier the better, especially if you are committed to beautiful pictures because there is a lot of people there. You can even head up on the roof and admire the beautiful view from high up. Right next to the Duomo is the Galleria Victoria Emanuele II, the oldest shopping mall in Europe and probably the prettiest.
Welcome to 2020. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. One of my new year resolutions is to be more eco-conscious for 2020. I believe we can continue to live a comfortable life while being eco-friendly. It is about being conscious of our impact on the planet because most of us do not even realise it. We live in a capitalist society therefore unfortunately our purchases are our votes. I know it is easy to feel hopeless, but every little effort helps. Therefore, I wanted to share different ways to be more eco-conscious this new year.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. It is the time you get to be all cosy inside your warm home surrounded by the people you love. You get to enjoy amazing warming foods and drinks and get spoiled by all kinds of presents. However, making everyone happy with presents is the though part which is why I wanted to share some ideas of gifts for your loved ones.
Luxury shopping is both exciting and glamorous but it can also be very daunting. Maybe it is the high price tag or how long you have been saving for this purchase or even the whole shopping experience that makes it intimidating. Don't worry, it does not have to be this way. This is your guide to helping you make the best choices for your luxury shopping and get the best deal for your dream items. Do your research: looking at pictures online of that particular item and how other people are styling it, will help you have a better idea of how it could fit in your wardrobe. I personally really like looking at youtube review videos and hear about other people's opinion on it. Blogs like the Purse Forum are also a great source of information and a great place to engage with others fellow luxury bag owners. Try it in store: even if you decide to buy it online, I would always suggest trying it in person. You can get a clear idea of how it looks on your figure and how it compliments your style. For example if you are buying a bag, you might realise that the one you love is way too big or small for your frame. It also allows you to try different textures
FROM LA TO SAN FRANCISCO: Make sure to bring food: San Francisco is a long way away from LA and there might not be amazing food all along the way especially as soon as you get into Big Sur as it is pretty desertic. Have lunch by the ocean: it is the perks of driving along the ocean. Stretch your legs, breath some ocean air and nap on the beach for 30 min before hitting the road again. Enjoy Big Sur: as soon as you are in Big Sur there is so many beautiful views to see so take your time to admire and take pictures. Look for signs indicating view points along the way. There is also signs indicating the sea elephants that you can watch sleep on the beach. We were really lucky and even got to see a lot of whales swimming in the distance...
