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,

One day in Tuscany

When I look at the pictures from Tuscany, I get the impression that whatever I see is not real… But the reality is even better. Everything is just picture perfect ! I cannot imagine anybody visiting that part of Italy and not falling in love with this beautiful countryside, wineries and rustic farmhouses on every corner.

During our week in Tuscany, I could not resist the temptation of taking as many pictures as possible to document every move in order to share my happiness and joy of visiting Italy with all of my readers. As a result, I would like to take you all on a road with me for just one day…

The day started with beautiful and sunny morning walk… The house that we were staying at was truly spectacular and very Italian. Ideal rural location with just right amount of luxury !

Our first stop on the roads was Lucca which is located about two hours drive from our accommodation. It is a beautiful city and the one that is most loved in the whole Tuscany. It is famous for its Renaissance walls and characteristic cobblestone streets. Lucca has an incredible charm so driving there was a real pleasure !

For the outfit of the day, I decided to go for something casual that would make me feel comfortable yet dressed appropriately. I paired my beloved jumpsuit with the newest addition to my wardrobe… a pair of Topshop sliders ! They are extremely comfortable with animal print adding something extra to the whole design. The quality of the finish is really good for the price and I would highly recommend to check them out if you have a chance !!

We ended our visit in Lucca by having this delicious lunch in one of many restaurants in the city centre. Everything was so tasty and fresh !!

For our next stop we decided to go to the seaside. It was a very spontaneous decision but I have no regrets. We drove to the nearest resort called Viareggio. It is a seaside town with fabulous sea front and very good infrastructure. There was so many bars and restaurants and the beach itself was really good as well. We also found a pier with some amazing views !!

After few hours of sunbathing and relaxing we decided it was time to go home as the drive back was well over two hours… But that was not the end of the day as we had a table book in the village restaurant so after refreshing, changing and resting we went to eat and enjoy the end of one of my favourite days ever !

This is a sneak peek of what I was wearing that evening but more on that will follow soon !!

I hope you have enjoyed the day trip in Tuscany and I hope to see you soon !!

Many thanks for stopping by…
