I could have sworn that it was yesterday we were talking about the blog turning one. And here we are and the year has flown by and with it, so have my twenties.
I’ve been trying to see a lot of America this year. And Miami had always been one of those cities high on the list to check out. So when a friend decided to celebrate his birthday there, a weekend away was the perfect excuse to check out Miami. For starters, it is unfair as to how beautiful the weather is there all the time and the water is the most perfect shade of blue/green I have ever seen. Not too crowded or rocky, it really is a great city to just hang out and
Chanel knew what she was talking about when she said a woman can never go wrong in a little black dress. It is at once elegant and the base canvas to either accessorize or continue to keep the look simple and chic. You know how when you go shopping with an outfit in mind and never manage to find anything? I personally always find it hard to shop for specific occasions. So now when I happen to come across an outfit I love but don’t necessarily have an immediate occasion for, I buy it anyway.
It’s not making mistakes that counts but instead what you do to avoid repeating them. I don’t think those words could be truer of any country than Germany at the moment, where they are taking great measures to help alleviate the migration crisis in Europe. One of my closest friends in the city is German. For the past five years, we have both talked about taking the other to visit our homelands and to see it through the eyes of a local.
Located 30 minutes outside of Berlin, the town of Potsdam is home to Palace Sanssouci, a summer getaway created for the King of Prussia. Dowsed in Rococo architecture, this may not be talked about enough, but the World Heritage Site is a must see for anyone visiting Berlin. When one of my friends mentioned this as a the German Palace of Versailles, it quickly became the top must-see on my trip to Berlin. While Versailles is one big palace, the grounds of
“An a-what-a? It’s like a totally important designer.” Thank you Alicia Silverstone for introducing me to Azzedine Alaïa, long before I knew who he was. “The King of Cling” has come a long way from the streets of Tunisia. What I love about his clothes is the fact that each one is handmade and a work of art.
London was one of the first big cities I visited abroad, when I was younger. It has everything you can want from a city – culture, food and every great store in the world. Since travel is one of the things I am happiest doing, I thought I’d create a guide to some of my favorite spots in the city for you.
That feeling where the sun bakes your skin ever so slightly and you’re sipping on a nice cold coconut feni (a local drink that is quintessential to a visit in Goa) by the beach ?! The Goan life suits me well. I can’t help but smile every time I think of my trips to Goa, which have been quite a few in the past couple years. When I visit home, it is an easy destination to get to, being only an hour long flight from Bombay. It makes for the perfect family getaway as you
I once read somewhere that BC stood for “Before Coffee”. Never having been much of a morning person, truer words could not be said for me.
I am so fortunate for having been able to see very different parts of America this year. One of the big things being the changing of the foliage in Providence, Rhode Island. I stayed at an idyllic boutique hotel called The Dean where attention to detail lies at the foundation of everything. From the restaurant to the karaoke bar, your trip here will be well worth it.
