To start, I am so honoured to be invited not only once but for the second year around, to attend the Dolce and Gabbana haute couture events. This summer the events were held at Palermo, the capital city of the beautiful Italian island of Sicily.
I was so excited about attending this special event again, but even more about visiting Palermo. Although it isn’t a highly advanced or a luxurious city, but the culture and history it has just made it very appealing.
During this week, there were quite a few different events happening everyday, along side with the pop up DG store, bar, and restaurant. After we freshen up from our flight, we thought to visit the DG pop up store. It was located by the port, with a large spacious store, and a Tropical Italian outdoor bar and restaurant. The store not only stocks their latest ready to wear clothes, but also specially made for this summer event outfits as well. One thing I loved from last summer and was looking forward to was the fabric shopping bag you get from any purchase at the pop up store. It is a great little souvenir to remember this trip by.
During the new year of 2017, I decided to take a trip to the other side of the world and experience the differences they have to offer.
To make the most out of this trip, we decided to experience it through a road trip style. We rented a car and drove to all the areas that we wanted to see. Well, we did take a few flights from city to city or it will take months to visit them all. We started off in Sydney, Australia. In my mind Australia is always a sunshine filled place, with beautiful beaches and Koala hanging on all the palm trees. In parts, I was mostly right about the sun and beaches, but we did have to enter the zoo to see the Koala. That was one of my favourite activates we did during our time in Sydney. I was able to see and learn about Koala, and even able to take a selfie with them too! However, we were not permitted to hold them as interacted by the keeper. Apart from the Koala, we also managed to see the Kangaroos, and amongst other very interesting animals.
Of course if one arrives in Sydney, one must see and visit the Sydney Opera House. After doing the most tourist full activities, we went and stroll around the city before having a boat trip dinner. It was a great place to see the Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge from day light to night light. With live music and delicious seafood, the night was made.
Following the foodie trend I have been writing about for the past few blogs, I thought I would dedicate one just for drinks! Recently I have found several interesting drinks that I like to share.
The (Nam Hom) coconuts are grown in Ratchaburi, Thailand, and are picked right at at their peak to give us the best aroma fill, delicious drinks! Apart from the water, the company also produces coconut meat that is bagged within 24 hours after the coconuts are picked from the tree. In my opinion they both taste amazing, great refreshing drink for the summer heat. If you are able to get your hands on one or both, it’s a must try!
No matter if you are a crazy food addict or just enjoy spending time with your friends and socialize, the London Street Feast is the place you should be. Just over the last weekend, the Street Feast, London has started. Being a bunch of foodies, my friends and I rush over to Dalston Yard to see what this is all about. A little bit about the Street Feast, it is all about food and drinks (if you didn’t get it from their title). This is a place where it gives a great platform for street vendors to show what they can offer. From burgers, and ribs to gin and whole pineapple drinks, each vendor brings something unique to the event.

As summer is ready upon us, I thought I would share some of my favourites summer essentials!
First, with the shining sun greeting us daily, it is the best time to take out a cool pair of sunglasses! I love my Ray-bans, but I recently discovered Han Kjobenhavn's handmade sunglasses, and I could not put them away. The amber frame creates a glow under the summer light, making it a great accessory for any outfit!
When one says summer, I think colours. This is why I have been wearing my new Daniel Wellington Watch with the Classic Nottingham Wristband. The colourful nylon material reflecting a casual, but elegant look that can work for a day at the beach or a fancy garden party.
Speaking of colours and accessories, I always like to have some form of beads or leather wristband. Straight from my most recent shopping cart, I have got myself a blue leather wristband. It's a mix of light and dark blue leather strips weaved together. It's brighter then what I normally wear, but I thought it would be great for the summer look.
Finishing off my list of favourites, is a nice pair of espadrilles shoes. These two tone shoes makes the hot summer days feel so much more cooler and free. It is simple and easy to wear, and when you pair it with some chinos or some shorts, and your all set for the day!
What do you think?
Let me know in the comments about your summer favourites!
Have a nice summer day!
