Thoughts about Venice

9 Oct

Venice_Sept_2014_05It’s 9 o’clock and I’m seated on the terrace of a tiny cafe next to Piazzale Roma. In fornt of me, a quiet canal where some gondole are still sleeping. It’s cloudy and I’m actually freezing, but I don’t want to miss the view: the dark green water contrasts with the golden details of the gondole. Even in this modest canal behind Piazzale Roma, Venice is wonderful.

We need this! Trenchcoats

8 Oct

Well, this post should have been called P. needs it, I already have it. A couple of years ago I bought a beautiful Burberry trench with leather details that became immediately my favourite piece. I wear it basically everyday in Autumn. It’s one of the first things I’d save if there was a fire in my house. That’s how much I love it. Lately, we have been looking for a trench that suits P. This is our selection:
1. The classic Burberry trench, of course. It’s obviously an investment, but it’s worth every cent. It’s timeless, it enhaces every silhouette and makes you look like a million dollar. Even if you wear it with jeans and Converse.
2. This light trench could be another option. It has a minimalistic vibe that makes it really cool. The light color is really nice too.
3. P’s favourite. We saw it the other day in a store in Hamburg and it triggered the search of the perfect trench. We both know this is the one she wants, but let’s keep looking…
4. A flowy trenchcoat. Zara always offers its take on trends and classics. This version seems to be borrowed from the boys and has camouflage lining.
5. This relaxed, casual little number would be perfect for everyday working looks.

But again, I know she wants number 3. Which one is your favourite?

Moodboard: Tuscany

7 Oct

moodboard_tuscany_1Have you ever thought that some destinations are better if enjoyed at a certain age? Well, I do think that every age has its destinations. Long exotic journeys are for those years in college and things like tours around Tuscany call for a more mature and slow-paced travellers. Well, we feel that we belong in the latter group, so we’ve been planing a road trip in Tuscany for a while.
moodboard_tuscany_2It would be nice to spend a few days in Florence breathing art and history. Then we could rent a car and get lost in the famous Tuscan countryside. Eat, drink, relax, repeat. I know is a fantasy that most of us have: Tuscany! It’s almost a brand, a cliché… but wouldn’t it be nice to make it a reality?

Fragrance wardrobe

7 Oct

Fragance_wardrobe_1We’ve used the same fragances for years. For her, by Narciso Rodriguez for P. and Le Feau Light by Issey Miyake for me. P. still uses the famous velvety scent by Narciso Rodriguez but my beloved perfume was discontinued three years ago. Drama. Why oh why did they discontinue that wonderful fresh scent? Since then, I’ve been using Jo Malone’s Nectarine Blossom & Honey Cologne mostly. But recently we’ve discovered our mutual passion for masculine aromas. They are susually lighter, fresher and more vibrant than most women fragances, which we usually find too sweet or too powerful.

mmm… Monday! Not your average burger

6 Oct

onion_mushroom_burger_1This is probably the best burger we’ve ever eaten. And we made it at home. And it happens to be a chicken burger. And it doesn’t have a nice bun or a crunchy bread roll.  It’s different from every burger we’ve eaten and it’s absolutely delicious.

Moroccan Spa with Mediteranique

2 Oct

riad-fes_1villadesorangersEvery season has its trends. Also when it comes to travelling. When we think about Autumn we usually picture ourselves in the woods, by the fire place in a cosy rustic retreat or exploring a Central European city. While this sounds completely inviting, sometimes we feel like escaping, experiencing something new and changing your life if only for a few days. All in all, that’s what most of us look for when travelling, isn’t it? Then, why not thinking outside the box?

We need this! Hats

1 Oct

We love hats, but we almost never wear them. We told you before: we are lazy dressers. Plus I’m a bit paranoic and I’m always thinking that my hat will fly away as soon as I go out the door. Wind is always an issue here. Very convenient for sustainable energy strategies, but really annoying for fashionable ones. Anyway, since I’m determined to make an effort this season and step out of my confort zone I’ve been browsing the Internet looking for the perfect hat to dress up my Autumn looks. I will blue-tack it to my head if necessary. See? I’m determined. These are the candidates:

1. This hat reminds me of young Sissi, Empress Elisabeth of Austria. I used to love those films when I was a child. I always wanted to look like Romy Schneider. The beautiful montains in Bayern, crispy air, rosy cheeks and gorgeous little hats. Pretty expensive, though.

2. Since I’m all for monochromatic looks this season, this hat could be a key basic piece to upgrade my looks. Besides, it has an Italian ganster vibe, don’t you think?

3. The investment piece. This is a classic. It can’t get better than that.

4.  I find this color very flattering and it could be the perfect twist for an all black outfit, no? A little bit floppy, it has a nice 70’s feeling to it.

5. This beauty could be my favourite. I saw it in a magazine and I can’t stop thinking about it.

6. Zara is always a good place to look for affordable fashionable accessories. This navy hat is really pretty and looks way more expensive than it is.

Which one is your favourite? Do you wear hats? If you live in a cold country like us beanies don’t count. They are not a fashion matter, they are essential for survival!

Moodboard: Morocco

30 Sep

moodboard_morocco_2

We have to confess that Morocco was not very high on our bucket list. P. visited Casablanca a few years ago and came back with mixed feelings. I’ve never been to Morocco and never gave it a thought, to be honest. But recently, we’ve started reading about new hotel openings, camps in the dessert, crowded markets and lonely walks in the Atlas Mountains… and now we have the urge to visit and get to know Morocco.
