Nestled on the South side of the Adriatic sea, Montenegro is truly a hidden gem. Many of us don’t even know where it is but as someone who is from Balkan originally, visiting Montenegro felt like being back home and I really needed to write this post and show you guys this hidden beauty.
There are so many cafes in Paris that in all honesty, you will find yourself spoilt for choice. I’m in love with the Parisian cafes culture and it’s such a perfect way to take a little break and catch up with your friends over some wine and cheese.
As you may know, I recently returned from a trip to Paris and on this trip, my mission was to find as many cafes as possible and recommend the best ones for you guys. We didn’t eat at all but most we did try their food and I decided to share them in the order of my favourites on top.
Somewhat of an Italian gem in the middle of Paris, a table at Pink Mamas is not easy to get. If you want to have dinner here prepare yourself to wait for quite some time. Pink Mama is part of a group and they have 6 other establishments but unfortunately, I have only been to this one. Spread across the 4th floor with an identity in its own right, Pink Mama is for all that are looking for something slightly different to a traditional Parisian cafe and restaurants. They serve Italian food and offer some of the best burrata and pizzas I have had in a while. Washed down with an Aperol and its super funky setting makes this one of my favourite cafes in Paris. I say cafe as I’m trying to stick to a theme but really its a restaurant. Very popular amongst locals and travellers and its annoyingly open only between 12-14 and 18.45 to 23.00 makes it a little hard to get a table especially for brunch so you will need to try your luck. The best thing is that Big Mama was literally 2 minutes walk for our apart’hotel in Opera so we had to try twice before scoring a table but it was definitely worth it. Prices are 15-18 Euros for a main on average.
Should you fail to get a table at the Pink Mama and don’t have time to wait around for the next to be available (guilty as charged) then I recommend you popping over to Le Dépanneur which is literally 2 minutes walk away. Le Dépanneur has a really nice terrace so it’s perfect to have a little drink in the evening here as well as some food. we had a burger and ceviche and it was very delicious. Their concept is a fusion of Mexican and American fast food so the menu is quite interesting. We were really hoping to have some guac and chips but sadly they run out, other than that we thought that food was quite yum. They serve wine and cocktails which we also savoured but who can blame us, once you are in Paris, you have to live a little 🙂 The prices were slightly heftier than the Pink Mama but the service was good and we really enjoyed sitting on their terrace so I had to recommend it.
This is my second time at the Ellsworth and I love the fact that we were only just over 5 minutes walk away. We popped to Ellsworth each time we had a little cheese and wine craving as they tend to serve tapas-style dishes and since we eat a lot we wanted to have starters/desserts here and main elsewhere. I’m in love with their ambience as its so quirky but quaint at the same time. Thier service is amazing and price very decent. I love all of their wines too so you really can’t go wrong with choosing Ellsworth. They are focused on using small producers as their suppliers so you really can taste the quality in their food which by the way comes with unlimited refills of bread baskets but I’m not sure if this is a good thing for your waist.
Last but not least is Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole very charming French restaurants positioned just a throw away from the Noterdam Cathedral. I would say this is a blogger favourite and very Instagrammable. Dining here looked way more formal than what we felt at that moment in time so we opted for a table outside and a cup of coffee in the sun. We were so lucky to have such beautiful weather in Paris when we visited which made us stop frequently for our coffee breaks. Service was lovely and coffee was priced well for this area so I can definitely recommend you try Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole even if its just a coffee.
I hope you enjoyed my recommendations and do let me know if you have been or planning to visit any of the spots I recommend? I would love to find out.
Paris is always a good idea as its one of the rare cities in the world that give you that undeniable feeling of inner happiness and love. I jsut feel like pinching myself each time I see the Eiffel Tower and I just don’t know why because I’ve seen it so many times.
Parisian life is my dream and every opportunity that I have to visit the City of love I take it. This time we stayed in the most central location at Citadines Apart’hotel in Opera. Opera is a favourite area amongst fashionistas due to its well know department stores including Les Galeries Lafayette.
Having spent a few days in Paris with Emily, I came back to London full of love and happiness. It’s true when they say that time is precious so it’s important to surround yourself with people that empower you and help you live life to the best.
I take any chance I get a weekend away in Edinburgh since its one of my favourite cities in the world and I visited it so many time. Each time I try and do something different so on this visit I created a round-up of things I got up to and things that I believe are worth visiting.
I love roaming vintage stores to get that happy feeling when you find that vintage dress that you love. I swear it feels like finding a treasure and I can’t help but wonder, which era it came from and what to occasion was it worn.
As someone who studied in Edinburgh, I take any opportunity to visit again. I believe Edinburgh is such a special city in so many ways and I love exploring it more each time I return. On this visit, I stayed at the Radisson Collection on the Royal Mile and wanted to share my experience with you guys.
Monaco is an independent city-state between south of France and Italy with the most prestigious inhabitants in Europe. The yacht abundance and a casino lifestyle may not be for everyone but if you do however find yourself in Monte Carlo, then I created a list of few things you can do.
Back in February during the fashion week, we saw a fair amount of purple or lilac colours on the runway. Some people may instantly shy away from this colour but this will not change the fact that this colour is present in most stores this season.
Monte Carlo Bay is the second hotel we stayed at on our recent trip to Monaco. My only regret is not visiting in the hotter weather as this five-star resort is surrounded by a swimming pool complex and the sea making it a perfect location to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Japanese garden Monaco was one of my favourite spots out there so I wanted to share my outfit that I wore on my visit. The garden is a replica of a real Japanese Garden and it has a waterfall, a little lake and a necessary cherry blossom trees.
Spring is here and with it comes a wardrobe change. I’m thinking bright colours and reds since days are warmer and longer. There are so many trips ahead that I think this L’Academie Dress dress is going to be a staple in my wardrobe this summer.
I recently had a chance to stay at a luxurious Hotel Hermitage in Monaco and wanted to share my experience with you guys. I don’t think I ever stayed in such beautiful and bijou place and I couldn’t help myself but take tons of photos and share it with you all.
I like to visit Barcelona every chance I get and this time I wanted to share my top 3 Cafes in Barcelona that I either stumbled upon or heard about from friends. You may be familiar with some of my suggestions and if you are I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
With spring here its time to drop some of those annoying layers and show some skin. I do have to admit it may be little bit harder to do this in London however, there are so many holidays to be had. Also summer is almost here as we had the big heath wave. Continue Reading
I have to be honest guys I’m not the one for adventurous rides and scary rollercoasters as I have a major fear of heights, however, my motto this year is to challenge myself on every possible level and face my fears whatever they may be. I was invited to attend the grand opening of Port Aventura World in Spain and I thought what a great opportunity to practice my new motto of trying to say yes to most things and live my life in the present.
Although the official season hasn’t started, it’s always so nice to take a weekend break to Ibiza with a bunch of your favourite girls. This island has the most positive vibes in Europe, well for me at least and almost always something amazing happens so I do like to take any opportunity to visit. This is my 4th time on the island and the purpose of this trip is to chill in the sunshine and spend time with my girlies.
Spring is here and yet another opportunity to update your wardrobe! I love sinner days and wearing fewer clothes so I’m super excited to start wearing more floral prints and floaty dresses. However, until we wait for stores to either release new lines, sales or come up with items that we like, we all have few bits in our wardrobes that are easy to style during the transitioning period.
As someone who frequently travels, every two weeks as of this year I have kinda mastered What makeup to pack to save space when travelling. I can also safely say that I have been through many situations at airports to somewhat learn how to avoid losing my makeup to airport security staff. I’m sure we all have experienced that dreaded feeling of having to part with your favourite moisturizer and foundation that can cost an arm and a leg because of not packing correctly for your trip.
As you may know, if you read my blog that I decided to leave my full-time office job in December and give my nomad life a chance. I always wanted a nomad life but at the end of 2017, I felt like the time is right. Staying on top of your workload when travelling can be challenging so I wanted to share some of the tips I acquired in the past that you may find useful.
