My first trip to Mykonos

I have never been to Greece before. This surprises me as much as other people when I tell them. I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to make it here, but I am so excited to have finally landed on the island of Mykonos…

THREE WEEKS IN ITALY- PART 3

The saying “time flies when you’re having fun” couldn’t be more relevant to my trip in Italy. I am so sad to think that my three weeks in this beautiful country is coming to an end but theres one thing that makes me feel better, knowing that I will be back next year. I don’t think I can live without a little bit of Italy in my life every year…

A POLO SUMMER

The beautiful beaches and florals of Capri are so inspiring and I am definitely feeling at home here on this magnificent island. Capri’s elegance and beauty was the inspiration for my look today. I have swapped my sandals and dresses for these stunning Polo Ralph Lauren Summer collection looks. Because if there is anywhere in the world where you can look absolutely fabulous in florals, its Capri. I believe in dressing according to your location, my style definitely changes depending on where I am. I also live by life by the belief that what makes a beautiful, confident woman is a woman who can do it all. She can dress in a suit for a meeting, a gown for an elegant dinner or jeans and t-shirt on her days off. I don’t believe in any woman having just one style, dress however you feel the most beautiful and others will notice.

BEAUTIFUL CAPRI

I arrived in Capri two weeks into my trip in Italy and just like every other place I’ve visited I was blown away. It seems as though it only gets better and better in Italy but I must say Capri might just be my favorite. I arrived by Ferry to the bustling harbor but after taking (a very steep) cable car ride over the mountain I discovered the true beauty of Capri…

MONASTERO SANTA ROSA

The Amalfi coast is the ever so perfect combination of breath taking cliffs, turquoise beaches, great italian food, wine and culture. There isn’t much more that I could ask for in one place and I am soaking up every precious minute of my stay here.

ARRIVING ON THE AMALFI COAST

  The Amalfi Coast is everything you (or I for that matter) could ever dream of. Driving along the narrow cliffside roads to arrive at our hotel,  The Monastero Santa Rosa, was worth the risk (the risk being the Italian drivers). I have never seen somewhere so perfect, the cliffs are covered in bright green vineyards, vibrant florals and colorful villas. But below the cliffs lay the quaint turquoise blue water beaches, lined with striped Italian style umbrellas. I am very happy to be spending the next 4 days here in the sun!

CINQUE TERRE

The next stop on my 3 week road trip through Italy was the infamous Cinque Terre, “five towns” nestled along the Liguarian coast of Western Italy. I decided to stay 45 mins away so I could also explore the beautiful town of Sestri Levante and experienced the most magnificent lightening storm upon my arrival. I spent the night drinking wine in my robe and watching the storm pass by, it was utterly relaxing.

THE TOWN OF BURANO

When I heard about the island of Burano it almost sounded too good to be true. Some people call it the most colorful island in the world and its easy to see why. Every house or building on the island is painted in a vibrant color. The streets were so perfect and beautiful it felt surreal, almost like a movie set.

VENICE BY NIGHT

Venice definitely lives up to its reputation as “the most romantic city in the world” by night. When the sun is setting the city transforms and there is a special feeling in the warm night air. The sky is painted with tones of pink and blue and the sound of accordions and gondoliers singing echo through the canals. Red roses are sold in the square and couples are kissing on the steps of the bridges. If thats not romantic I don’t know what is. I wish more cities were like Venice, love is a beautiful thing and I have enjoyed being surrounded by it the last few days.
