Amsterdam photo diary

This was our first time in Amsterdam. A weekend, no plans ahead and so many things to do… What did we do? Walk. We didn’t visit any museum and gosh there are museums in Amsterdam!!! But we wanted to see the canals, discover the corners that we had seen so many times in travel magazines, we wanted to be spontaneous and we wanted to say goodbye to Summer. I felt a little bit overwhelmed because I really wanted to make the most of the weekend but also be relaxed and easy going… So I ended up a tad frustrated and anxious. Yep. That’s what happens when I try to be spontaneous. Does that happen to you too? All in all we had a great time, we walked until we were exhausted and we fell in love with Amsterdam. Obviously, we have to come back to visit some museums and eat some stroopwaffel! Here you have some pics and highlights of our weekend if you’d like to see…

Whistles

If you follow us, you’d know that we spent last weekend in London. We had a great time! We visited Bailey’s Stardust exhibition, we wandered through the streets of Marylebone village and we shopped. That’s inevitable. Everytime we visit London we go shopping. I mean… who doesn’t? One of the highlights of our trip was the new collection by Whistles. Even though we already knew this brand, we never payed much attention to it, to be honest. But this time we were surprised by their sort of edgy Summer colelction.

Our “no make up” make up

We usually don’t wear foundation. On a daily basis we really like to sleep a little bit more, have a nice shower and a good breakfast before heading to work. That’s why we like to keep our make up simple and fresh. Yes, we are great fans of the “no make up” make up. We discovered L’Oreal Nude Magique BB Cream by pure chance but we loved it the minute we tryed it. It makes your skin looks FLAWLESS. Really, it’s way better that other pricey BB creams and light foundations. And it’s super easy to apply! It gives you an amazing natural glow. After a year enjoying its benefits we were really happy to try the brand new products of the Nude Magique line: the BB Powder and the BB Blush. And we weren’t disappointed at all! The blush has a velvety texture that we just love and, again, it’s very easy to apply. You can start with a little amount and work from there to get the perfect light flushed-by-crispy-Autumn-air cheeks. The powder is …

11 things we love about London

We wanted to make a getaway this month and spend a nice long weekend in London. But as they say, life got in the way. So sadly, we won’t be able to visit this fantastic place this moth.  Nevertheless, we’ve decided to make a little hommage to London and share with you the 11 things we love about it.

Verona with a soundtrack

Hello there! How is your week going? We’re back in Germany, but just for a week before we head to Italy! We will be visiting our family in Veneto, my favourite Italian region. We’ve already told you about the little hidden gem that Vicenza is (click, click) but today we wanted to share with you our fascination for Verona and its magnificent Arena.

WHEN IN ROME… (part II)

Fontana di Trevi: it’s absolutely beautiful. Yes, there are thousands of tourists there, but try to forget them and see the beauty of it. Go there early in the morning… maybe you are lucky and have a minute or two alone with it. And don’t forget to visit the Fontana at night, it’s magical.

ONA Camera bags

We absolutely love ONA camera bags. The shoulder bags are wonderful and really stylish, but the backpacks look so comfortable and boyish that we will feel like new adventurous Indiana Jones discovering the world while fighting scoliosis!!! (You have to admit that sometimes cameras weight tons!) You can find and buy super nice camera bags here: ONA Stylish Camera Bags Images via ONA Stylish Camera Bags
