July

July has come to an end and as usual I thought I will give you an update on what has been happening… Last month was a very intense one for me with work and my private life blending into one and demanding more and more from me on the daily basis.

The most memorable part of the month would be, without the shadow of the doubt, my trip to Italy. I loved everything about Tuscany and I really hope that we would be able to return many times…

Florence is by far of my favourite place I have been to… It is better that you can imagine, but crowds and heat can make it more difficult to enjoy…

My beloved city… Florence in its glory !!

Famous Chianti wine is being produced in Tuscany and it is the most consumed red wine in the whole USA !

I love Vespa scooters so much that I have been taking pictures wherever I saw them… Love the variety of colours too !!

July is always a good month when it comes to sales shopping and this year was no exception. Normally, sales would start much earlier but by this time the items are reduced to the maximum.

However, before I buy anything nowadays, I will ask myself if the item in question adds anything to my wardrobe ? If the answer is yes, I may be tempted.

I have not bought that many things, but I still managed to get a bargain or two. I really hope you will like these items as much as I do…

I got this Michael Kors last weekend from Flannels in Leeds and I love it ! I do not have anything like this in my wardrobe and I think it is a staple item that will stay with me for a very long time !!

I wanted a decent leather jacket for some time now and when I saw this one by AllSaints in Bicester Village reduced by over 50 % I knew it is the one…

I saw this skirt on Emma Hill YouTube channel and I instantly knew I have to get it although it was not on sale… You know then you know !!

I have also made some time this month for a little bit of culture and went to the cinema twice and to a rock concert. As much as I enjoyed all of the activities, the movie I would recommend more that nothing else this month is The Beguiled. The story is very twisted and watching it made me feel uncomfortable to say the least but it also made me to reflect. The decisions we make and the consequences that they bring can go much further that we can expect…

And finally, I have been working on my YouTube channel and managed to publish some videos. I have linked my latest one, comparing Chanel WOC and my opinion of this classic bag. I would be thrilled for you to watch it, subscribe to my channel and give me some support and feedback !!

Many thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you all very soon !!

Love,

June

June has gone so fast that I have not had a chance to stop and reflect… It is something that I like to do whenever I closed a chapter in my life. It maybe after the end of the month, year or after a significant change in my circumstances. I try to look at the positives and address everything that I should have done that I have not… so I do not feel like I am drowning…

Last month have been better for me that I have expected. There were so many things that I was worried about that in the end turned up to be not so scary after all !!

I have also made some new purchases for summer time and I will be more than thrilled to share them with you in the very near future !! As I am currently enjoying little get away, my biggest priority were summer accessories and clothing. These are just few examples of what came to my possession lately…

Fifty posts… statistics and what next ?

When I wrote my first blog post, I had no idea if anyone will read it or be interested in what I want to show you. It took a few weeks but after my Bangkok post I have realised that same of my fellow bloggers are checking what I have posted !

I have mentioned before that nothing gives me as much pleasure as knowing that a new reader checked out my website especially from a new to me country or place I have never been to. No words can describe the satisfaction you get from the kindness and encouragement from your readers and followers. As a lot of my friends have been asking how is it going with the development of my blog I thought I will let you know !
