Milano Moda

As the Italian flavour is slowly fading off as the days go by, and while this blog is finding again its real self, I felt that sharing with you my few hours spent in fashionable Milano would be a nice way to land again to my fashion, make up and style related routine.

Only a few hours in this beautiful, but by many accused industrial city, can elevate your fashion sense and elegance. Walking down the via della Spinga and via Montenapoleone with their beautiful window displays you feel like time has stopped and the only thing you want to do is capture all this beauty.BeFunky_VintageColors_1.jpg

Even walking down to the most tourist area of Milan – il Duomo, I found myself in a fashion shoot taking place – I wonder where would this be advertised!

I think this city was made for me – I absolutely loved it!

Italian Riviera Memoirs – Cinque Terre

And here comes the chance again to be able to share with all of you my magical 3 days away!

Our second stop of this trip was the magical Cinque Terre – 5 little villages literally hanging of the Liguria coast. 5 little gems that anyone can visit in just 6 hours using the local train line. If you are brave enough you can hike from one village to the other to enjoy the views – this certainly was not this type of holiday for me.

We managed to visit all 5 and here is a small taste for all of you from Monterosso, Vernazza  Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore. This is a place definitely worth visiting.

After a long walk around the Cinque Terre you can cool off and let all the scenery to settle with a nice walk around the Rapallo promenade. Another beautiful small village that can surely work as your starting and end destination for your day trips away. BeFunky_DSCN3560.jpgI hope you all enjoyed this beautiful break from reality!

Italian Riviera Memoirs – Portofino

It feels so soothing getting to spend a few hours on this so loved space of mine – and I am not talking about the Italian Riviera now, but about this so beloved blog space which lately seems to be so difficult to log on to! Life can be so inspiring but so busy at the same time and some times 24hours are not enough!

I have so many things to share with all of you but as I say I will start from the beginning! It feels like a life time but it was only a week ago where I had the pleasure to spend a few days in the magical land of the Italian Riviera! I honestly hadn’t thought of the beauty of this place, the colours, the smells, the flowers, the sea, it was just magical just out of this world. This beauty has to be shared and this is my mission for tonight!

Portofino is surely a tiny small gem hidden in the Italian Riviera, just 2,5 hours train ride from Milan. Spending just a few hours in this land is more than enough to relax and forget about the everyday life that so consumes us.

Next time I go there – it will have to be with my own boat!… after all we all have the right to dream!

Goodnight to all for now and my Italian Riviera stories will be continued tomorrow.

Local Designers

I don’t get to spent much of my time any more to my home town but whenever I get a chance I always love to walk around the city discoverimg the new hot spots and new shops that have sprung through my months absence.

This time a walk down the city centre reminded my of the artistic flair that this city has. I was pleasantly surprised that a few local designer had joined their forces together opening up a small design gallery  where I got to explore their creations.

So cold but so beautiful – Stockholm

I hope you all had a nice and long Easter Break. Mine found me in cold but yet beautiful Stockholm. I have to say that I would have much better enjoyed if it was summer but still we managed to get a lot of beautiful sun that is well missed.

Some interesting photos of life and the great views.
