BREDA

Hi guys!

Yesterday I went to Breda (Netherlands) for the day with my bf. We had a great time is this super duper cosy city! It’s only 30 minutes away from Antwerp and it’s really worth paying a visit! 

There are a lot of nice shops and boutiques, a whole bunch of trendy restaurants and lunch bars and you get to see the beautiful Dutch architecture. The city itself isn’t big so after a day you’ve seen it all, but it’s def worth it!


The weather was quite nice as well so we had some drinks outside 🍷🍺


As for what I was wearing:

Zara sweater, scarf and coat

H&M beanie

New look over-the-knee-boots

Bershka jumpsuit

Givenchy bag


Enjoy your weekend,

💋 Michelle

SEVILLA, la maravilla

¡Buenos días! 

Last week I came back from my girlstrip to Sevilla, the most beautiful city on earth! I lived there for about 7 months ( Erasmus ) and had the most amazing time! I try to meet up with the girls I met there every year ( it’s been 3 years now since I left for Erasmus ) and so far, we managed to see each other every single year! 💪💕 

I could write 1001 pages about Sevilla because it’s truly the most amazing city in the world! It has everything you could possibly wish for ( except for a beach and the ocean 🙈, but hey, the nearest beach is only a 50-minutes drive away). Beautiful architecture, great food and drinks ( and reaaaaally cheap! ), the sweetest people, and so on. 

WHAT TO VISIT: 

– A must see is the Plaza de España, if you have the chance, visit it once during the day and once during the evening!  

– The Alcázar of Seville (Real Alcázar) is a royal palace in Seville, Spain, originally developed by Moorish Muslim kings. It´s garden is truly beautiful and def worth paying a visit! ( also note that some of the scenes in Game of Thrones were shot here! ) 

– La Catedral de Sevilla, it’s the biggest Gothic cathedral in the world and also the 3rd biggest one in terms of size, after Saint Peter (the Vatican) and Saint Paul (London, UK). If you want to have an amazing view, you should go on top of the Giralda tower.   

 
But above all, just enjoy and wander around the small streets of the Santa Cruz quarter ( Barrio de Santa Cruz), or talk a walk next to the Guadalquivir river to cool down ( it get’s pretty hot over there ). Try their local beer, Cruzcampo or a Tinto de verano ( which means ‘summerish red wine’ and is soooo delicious) and def eat A LOT, it’s worth it, trust me 🙈

   
    
  

 But be aware, once you go there, you won’t want to leave!

‘ Quien no ha visto Sevilla, no ha visto maravilla. ‘ 

Un beso,

Michelle 💋
 

GREECE

ΚαλησπέραGood evening

Last week I went to Greece (Kos) for a well-deserved vacay with my bofriend. We had a lot of plans and wanted to do so many things but just ended up relaxing and doing nothing. We wanted to visit islands nearby, rent a quad to discover the island, go to the hot water springs but instead we just relaxed by the pool while sippin’ on a strawberry daiquiri 🙈

We stayed at the Michelangelo Resort and Spa, a really nice hotel in Agios Fokas, not so far from the town of Kos. The staff is super friendly and the food is a-ma-zing! I usually prefer eating outside of the hotel where I’m staying but the food was so amazing here that we ended up eating here a couple of times as well! 

So, I already told you guys that the hotel wasn’t so far from the town of Kos (20 min. by bus). There was a bus every 15 minutes to take you to Kos city so sometimes we took that bus in the evening to go out for dinner. One time we took the bus back to the hotel around 22.30h ( they told us to take line 1 or 5) and while we were sitting on the bus, the driver told us that he wasn’t driving to our hotel but that he was stopping a couple of stops earlier because sometimes they just didn’t go that far ( really nice explanation of the bus driver 😂 ). So he dropped us at a stop in the middle of nowhere… We had to shine with the flashlight of our cellphones to see something and we decided to start walking towards the hotel ( my bf was convinced that the hotel was nearby). After walking for about 15 minutes we still didn’t see anything so I got a bit scared ( def when I saw some panties next to the road ). There were no cars driving around because it’s a super small road so there’s almost no traffic, def not at night! We hoped that we would see the next bus coming but apparently we took the last bus…

After a while we luckily saw a taxi driver who was driving home and he picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel that wasn’t that close as my clever boyfriend thought before 🙈 he laughed at us the whole time and just really made fun of us, two dumb tourist walking around in the middle of nowhere! 😂

But hey, all’s well that ends well! 

Last but not least, here are some pictures of our not so adventurous trip to Kos, Greece!

Hi! 

I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t been able to share my stories with you!

So, I was invited to the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen! the party took place in Saint-Tropez (South of France) and the venue had the most beautiful view ever! 

Everyone had to be dressed in white to give it that extra special vibe! Def got some wedding ideas for myself from it 😏
