I’m back with more pictures and a (half) new outfit from my road trip first stop in New Orleans. There will be one more after this one and then I will move onto new locations, heehhe. New Orleans is just so picturesque and photogenic that I couldn’t get myself to stop snapping pictures. I opted to carry only my IPhone as it would be too cumbersome to carry my large Canon. I was more dedicated to my enjoying the vacation then the blog, I know. But who can blame me, right?

On our visit to New Orleans, I could not skip a trip to the swamp to check out some gators. I was really looking forward to riding on the airboat and seeing the alligators up close in their natural habitat. You will pardon my messy hair in the photos. There is only so much you can do when the wind is involved, hehehe.

I absolutely enjoyed the nature. Such a difference from northern climate and northern lakes and forests. I was asking about the houses which around the swamp and what is the point of being on the border of the water, if one cannot swim. I learned that gators are very shy animals and usually avoid people. They rarely attack, only when really hungry or cornered. Locals do swim in these waters. Now, soon after that there was a sad incident of a boy being snagged by an alligator in Florida, so I would not dare to ever swim here. There are also extremely poisonous water snakes here, so who is crazy enough to go swimming? But being on the boat was a lot of fun. Alligators were attracted to approach the boat by marshmallows, which what locals call swamp cocaine.

Can you imagine my fear and excitement when the guide brought out his own baby alligator? Well he is actually not a baby, he is 3 years old. But I learned that alligators adapt to their environment, and as he kept it in an aquarium it did not grow past his current size. I expected the skin to be rough but it was beyond soft. He was such a cutie and a trooper, patiently waiting to be passed around like a toy, for everyone to touch him. I caught myself wanting one for a pet, then I remembered I’m against wild animals being used as pets. Sadly, we had to say bye to the little cutie. The guide’s name was Rich and he named his pet alligator Dollar. Funny, no?

Once back in the city, a bike ride around was a must. I managed to make some more furry friends. What can one do. I got so much love to give! Heheheh

As for the outfit, what can I say? It was hot, I was going to the swamp, I needed comfort. Yes, I am wearing the same Levi's jeans as in the last post. I said they were my favourite, didn't I? hehehe Top is from Mexico. I simply tied it into a crop top. I am wearing it in reverse because I waned a white top. Embroidery is meant to be in front. Sneakers are from Forever 21 ($8) but you can find similar in H&M

Anyone else been to New Orleans? I would love to hear what you loved about it.

Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of MontrĂ©al. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…
