Because the weather here is cold and rainy, I will show you an outfit that I wore on a rainy day in London this July.
I love this Bellfield denim dress. I bought it from TK Maxx, but you can find it on ASOS, too. I especially liked the flower embroidery.
I paired it with some nude flats from Mango, an ASOS bag (www.asos.com) and a H&M cardigan.
It was perfect for a rainy stroll through the streets of my dear London.
Our walk began in Wimbledon Park, which is one of my favorite spots.
Afterwards we went straight to The Shard where we had a lovely drink and had the chance to find a table just by the window. How cool was that?
Tip for everyone visiting The Shard….just go have a drink in the bar and enjoy the view while seated at a table, instead of paying for the full ticket that takes to the highest floor. You will still have access to a great view.
And because we got hungry we went to the nearby Borough Market where I had some Chinese food and an extremely, I mean mouth-watering, dessert.
That was my extremely satisfied face while enjoying my wonderful cookie.
Summer`s officially over, but this post is going to be about our holiday in Spain, on the sunny Costa Dorada in Cambrils.
We stayed at the seaside 6 nights and 2 nights in the lively and cosmopolitan Barcelona.
One day we visited the lovely town of Tarragona, which we truly enjoyed. The following description is extremely true and captures the most important things that are to say about this Spanish gem.
“The eternally sunny port city of Tarragona is a fascinating mix of Mediterranean beach life, Roman history and medieval alleyways. Spain‘s second-most important Roman site, Tarragona has a wealth of ruins, including a seaside amphitheatre. The town’s medieval heart is one of the most beautifully designed in Spain, its maze of narrow cobbled streets encircled by steep walls and crowned with a splendid cathedral. A lively eating and drinking scene makes for an enticing stop.”
Here are my favorite pics from this destination to convince you that it is worth paying a visit if you happen to be in the area!
Last month I was in London for a special occasion, my highschool friend`s wedding.
I was thrilled when she invited me because, as I mentioned in one of my first posts, London, is my favorite city.
The wedding took place in a very special location in Watford, at High Elms Manor, an elegant place with an incredible garden. Unfortunately for us, the London weather had a little say and we were not able to enjoy the green space that they provided us.
Of course all eyes were on the bride, who looked stunning and perfect: the gorgeous dress, the smooth make up and the bouquet…everything was coming together like the pieces of a puzzle.
It`s raining and it`s cold outside. I am having a terrible sore throat. So, in days like these the best thing to do is browse old pics from the summer holiday and drink lots of hot tea with lemon and honey.
Last summer during our stay in Puglia, Monopoli we had the chance to experience a lovely dinner at the wonderful Don Ferrante Dimore di Charme
The view is spectacular. The surrounding white blends perfectly with the light blue tone of the sea.
A short description of this fabulous and romantic place:
“Locanda Don Ferrante” Restaurant, built in a 16th century old gunpowder cellar, is located between the blue of the sea and the white washed houses among Monopoli old town alleys.
The restaurant will conquer you with its regional recipes and the typical flavors of Puglia and a large choice of wines. Mediterranean tastes and fragrances will seduce even the most exigent palate.
During the summer months, the dinner is served al fresco on our panoramic “Terrace Don Ferrante”, perched over the sea in a privileged location.
Our Lounge Bar, in a chilled out atmosphere, is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a cool drink or refreshing cocktail.

Indeed, the culinary experience was truly satisfying. We enjoyed every bit of our meals and drank tasty wines.
The staff was extremely careful and lovely with us. They made us feel so well and made our evening more pleasant.
It was worth every penny and we highly recommend it.
What I wore:
my favorite lace and chiffon mint top from Stradivarius
