Beautiful Greece


Overlooking Mykonos town
Just me hanging with Adam and Eve at Paradise Beach
As promised not too long ago, I am dedicating one post to my visit to Mikonos at the end of August. I was not sure what to expect when we decided to go to Mykonos.  I have heard some mixed reviews but what really influenced us to go there specifically was my husband’s friend Yiannis, born Mykonian, who invited us to visit him there. Who in their right mind would refuse to visit such a beautiful place especially when you have the privilege of having a friend born there that can show you around and give you a full story behind everything:  churches, architecture, party life, and so on. And it was worth the trip.

Gorgeous Psarou Beach

You have so many beaches to go to, and they vary from family friendly to party beaches. Every single one is absolutely gorgeous. Psarou beach should be family friendly beach, but I gotta say I saw quite a bit of nudists there. Granted they stayed at the end of the beach where there are no chairs.  Paradise beach is known for its parties, day and night, so I expected it there, but I guess not J. I visited most of the beaches but the biggest treat for me was when Yiannis took us our last day, to a secluded little beach, not very known to tourists. There are no hotels, no bars, not even a path to get down to the beach. There is not any signage on the road how to get to it. You have to hop down steep rocks to get to it but it is absolutely amazing.

Gorgeous town of Mykonos

We stayed in private little hotel Penelope’s located in the town of Mykonos, overlooking the picturesque old inner harbor. Waking up to this view every morning was amazing. We enjoyed our breakfast every day on a scenic terrace and late afternoon refreshment on the beautiful private balcony in our room. This hotel is the perfect combination of location and comfort and is definitely very affordable. You are in the town of Mykonos  in 2 minute walk, just hop a few stairs down. Mykonos is in hills so you don't want to be too high up that you have to climb stairs for a long time in the heat or while drunk :), unless that is you want to keep in shape. But on a serious note, you are better off staying in a place like this and being able to walk back to your room in minutes and not have to worry about riding your moped under the influence at night (or day). If you do get a chance to go, I highly recommend you visit this hotel. The owner Ana is absolutely amazing and the staff is friendly. The hotel and the rooms are kept immaculately clean. And breakfast is fresh every morning. Don't forget the view!

Mykonos has a fun night life. There is something for everyone; however what I enjoyed most was walking its beautiful narrow streets. The town is gorgeous during the day but even more so at night, under its street lights and those of the little shops that line these streets. I caught myself several times getting a feeling that I was asleep and in a beautiful dream.  Amazing place for a romantic getaway as well as a fun vacation with friends.  Mykonos will definitely see me again, maybe sooner rather than later. Ciao!

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Hello lovelies! It’s been a while since I shared my last post. As you may know, I’m expecting twins in early August and so far my pregnancy has not been an easy one. Babies are doing very well but momma is exhausted 😊. I apologize for gaps between my posts.
Now is better time then every to share more about my trip through Italy. You may be planning your next European trip for the summer so stay tuned for more to come. Last I shared with you a post about a lake town Riva Del Garda. Today, I’m sharing one of the cutest places you will encounter in Italy. I’m talking about Cinque Terre. It’s a region of 5 small fishing towns on a rugged Italian coastline, in the north of the country. They used to be very isolated by their geography, but today numerous tourists come to visit.  You may notice resemblance to Positano in the south of Italy, only these 5 towns a…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
