A weekend trip to Milan

One of my very first blog posts was my trip to Milan and Como in 2016. Now – two years later – I went back and I had the best time!

When I moved to London I lived in an Airbnb for the first few weeks. I shared it with three Italian guys. One night we had some pizza and one of them showed me some Italian music. Being a huge fan of Chiara Ferragni I had already heard of Fedez, however, I had not really listened to his music. I told a friend, who I met in Milan last time, about it and he mentioned that Fedez and  J-ax would be playing a show in San Siro. My friend and I decided to go there, so I booked my flight and planned my trip.

The concert was on a Friday and since Francesco, my Italian friend, worked I decided to “explore” the city by myself. I still remembered some places from my last trip and even though I’ve been there before, the Duomo was my first stop. I bought some icecream and just enjoyed the sun, while probably looking like a real tourist.

In the evening I went to San Siro to meet up with Francesco and to watch the concert. Even though I only understand a bit of Italian, I still had a great time.

The following day we went to Lake Como, but I will write a seperate post about that.

On Sunday we rented bikes and cycled into the city centre. We had aperitivo at the Aperol terrace, which hands down has the best view! After starting the day with a drink we had napolitan pizza for lunch. I love food, but I love nothing as much as I love some good napolitan pizza.

We walked through Moscova and Porta Nuova, had some gelato at the cutest ice cream store I’ve ever seen and then took the metro to CityLife.  The weather was so so nice and I tried (hard) to get a bit of a tan.

Sadly my flight back was on Monday night already (since I work Tue-Sat). I had some more gelato, some more pizza and some sushi (super Italian, I know), went to Garibaldi, had some coffee and bought some gifts for my colleagues and flatmates and headed to the airport.

Those of you who read my blog since the beginning might remember that the last time I was in Milan my flight home got cancelled and I arrived 8 hours late. This time it was delayed by two hours and when I arrived in Heathrow the tube, coaches and trains weren’t running anymore. So I had to get a cab home. Turns out I’ll have to live on bread and water for the rest of the month ( or at least until British Airways pays me back the cab costs lol).

Spring in Primrose Hill

Spring has finally arrived (and so have my Asos orders). We had quite a few warm days here in the past month and last Sunday I finally got to wear one of my new summer dresses. So me and my friend Alexa went on a walk around Primrose Hill.

Primrose Hill is a cute, little area near Camden, with lots of beautiful houses, nice cafés and great restaurants. It’s a big crowded on weekends as everybody tries to grab a coffee or beer while sitting in the sun.

We walked around, took some pictures and even got stopped by some paparazzi who were hunting for some (real) celebs. London is always good for surprises, let me tell you that.

Before we went home we had coffee at “Cowshed” which is also a Spa, I will definitely book a beauty treatment there at some point.

It’s snowing in London! Again! Just when we thought winter was over the cold came back. But this didn’t stop us from going out and taking some pictures. Gotta do what you gotta do, right?

I went out with a colleague to shoot and to teach her how to use Lightroom. She lives near Tower Bridge and she knew the perfect spot to take pictures. I never even knew that you could get the Shard and Tower Bridge into one frame. Most people go to Tower Hill to take photos of the Tower Bridge, but as the Shard is on the same side as Tower Hill you wouldn’t be able to take a photo of both of them.

I really want to share my favourite London Photo spots with you. There are so many cool neighbourhoods, corners, shops and houses that are perfect for IG or blog photos.

Do you have any favourite spots in London?

Boots, braids and embroidered dresses

I decided to do my first ever outfit post. I do not consider myself a fashion blogger, or even a real blogger, but when I feel really good in an outfit I feel the need to share it on here.

We took these photos on the first day of fall. I just love this season so much, everything starts to get more cozy, the trees turn from green into golden brown and you can finally enjoy all the food and drinks that somehow is only limited to the cold seasons (I’m thinking about hot chocolate, pumpkin bread and all the delicious candy).

I found this dress at Zara, while I was there to buy the boots, which I saw on a previous shopping spree. About a week ago I found a bellsleved dress on Asos (I will probably also make a post with that dress) and now I’m obsessed with dresses, black tights and biker boots.

DIY embroidered jacket

Embroidered denim jackets are quite popular right now, sadly the pretty ones are suuuuper expensive.

A few weeks ago my mother cleaned her closet and asked me if I wanted her old denim jacket. I don’t usually wear denim jackets because I think they’re too plain. The one she gave me was a bit oversized and had a used look to it.

So I decided to do the embroidery myself, even though I never did that kind of embroidery. It took me about 2 days to finish and a lot of embroidery floss. I am really happy with the final result and I will definitely do it again.
