Bell Sleeves in the Slovenian Alps

< Many people speak of belonging next to the sea. While I certainly can attest to that, I feel myself equally as drawn to the mountains. Something about being immersed among nature’s biggest beasts, mountains are simply majestic (you can read about the first time I saw them here). When we discovered Slovenia was known not…


Chambray in Cyprus

Cyprus had been on my bucket list for quite some time now (here and here). Reason being, my best friend Stella, back in Canada, is Cypriot, and I grew up across the street from her and her family, which became a second home to me. Think ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding’ and that was pretty…


Summer Vacay Style

Summer is in full swing! It’s all about breezy dresses, light fabrics, cool accessories, and being beach ready at all times. With a couple getaways planned in the upcoming weeks, we put together our favourite summer vacay picks. From the perfect beach cover-up to the stylish sunhat, the only sunscreen you’ll ever need to the ideal walking…


The Pink Fashion Show

Malta’s Pink Magazine bi-annual Fashion Show was recently held at the stunning venue of Villa Rosa. Featuring well-known designers and brands and their ready-to-wear collections, the summer 2016 edition of the show was the perfect mix of fashion meets summer soiree. Produced by Pink Magazine’s editor-in-chief Fiona Galea Debono, and styled by Marisa Grima, the audience was treated to…


Malta Fashion Week: Part II

Now that Malta Fashion Week has come and gone, we can all take a breather to properly reflect back on the experience. This year’s MFWA (Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Malta / Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards) was truly spectacular (you can see PART 1 here). With a long list of talented designers, both local and foreign, the week…


Malta Fashion Week 2016: Part 1

Mercedes-Benz Malta Fashion Week 2016, sponsored by Valletta 2018 is, off to a fantastic start this year. We’ve already seen the New Designers show, held in Valletta, as well as the Point Fashion Show at the stunning main venue, Fort St. Angelo in Vittoriosa.  We took a Maltese Daisa (traditionally a fishing boat) across the…


Moroccan Sequins

When packing for an upcoming trip, I always keep the nature of the place in mind with each piece I choose. Whether consciously or not, my travel style is heavily influenced by its destination. Like wearing Spanish-dancing inspired ruffles and bright red fedoras in Madrid, or blending in with the architecture of Siena. I always try…


Siena Spring Style

I have such a special affinity for Siena. The beautiful walled city perched atop an Tuscan hillside in Italy was my first foray into Europe when I was younger. A good friend of mine had relocated there, and I visited with my family one Spring. I hadn’t been back since until recently, when I was fortunate enough to…


Romantic Moroccan Maxi

Morocco is unlike any other place I’ve ever been. The walled medina of Marrakech is a maze of contrasts: narrow chaotic streets filled with tantalizing scents and dizzying sounds, with hidden doors revealing a calm and peaceful oasis within. And the most outstanding oasis of the all lies behind the walls of La Mamounia Hotel….


Ruffles in Madrid

Hola from Madrid! We took advantage of a long weekend to spend it in Spain’s central capital. Unfortunately, the trip took off on a rocky start. While I won’t delve too much on the negative side, I will say this: NEVER do a new & tough workout right before a trip! I basically couldn’t walk the…
