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!

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…

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…

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!
