Koh Phi Phi – paradise island?

Koh Phi Phi was not what I had expected it to be. I must say I stumbled on it randomly, but have found it to be “the paradise island” all the backpackers seem to look for (watch “The Beach” for reference, even if only for young Leo).

Backpacking though SE-Asia: first stop, Singapore!

From Zurich I flew directly to Singapore with an overnight Swiss flight. I arrived in the late afternoon in Singapore on Chinese New Year and headed with the subway towards my hostel. I stayed at the Beary Nice! A Beary Good Hostel in a 8 bed dorm which was very nice.  The rooms were clean, so were the showers/ bathrooms. It’s located in 5 min walking distance from the subway stop China Town. Since it was new year all the streets around the hostel were packed with stands and lanterns. There was loud music, awesome Chinese food and fireworks. I stayed in Singapore only for two nights and one whole day (+ 2 half days) since I’ll be moving to Singapore next summer to do an exchange at the Singapore Management University. The university is located centrally (near Orchard Rd.) and is very nice.

Sicilia 2013

Image

Last summer I spent some time in Sicily visiting my family. I think that Sicily is one of the most amazing parts of Italy (if not even Europe!) regarding food, people and culture. Pasta, fresh fish, meat, fruit & vegetables- you name it, I’ve had it all. As usual I’ve been stuffed with the most amazing food by my family – worth every bite! Before heading to Palermo I’ve spent two weeks at the surf school of my aunt and uncle called Reef. Continue reading

Streetparade

ImageOn Saturday we had the famous Streetparade in Zurich, a huge techno-rave festival which takes place once a year in August. We usually dress up a little bit crazy (above the outfit I had this year, the last picture shows the one from last year). It was one of the most amazing days of the summer- you shouldn’t miss it if you love electronic music and happen to be in Zurich in August! The parade started in the afternoon at 1pm and went on until midnight. There were lots of famous DJs playing like Klangkarussell, Animal Trainer, Bob Sinclair, Yves La Rock, Sidney Samson, Nervo, Luciano, Deniz Koyu, Adriatique, David Guetta and many more. After the parade I headed to Komplex 457 for a 3-floor electro party with Bingo Players, Bogore and other awesome acts. Continue reading

Vespa, amore mio!

ImageI’ve had my Vespa ever since I turned 16 and wouldn’t change it against anything else in the world! There’s nothing better than having a nice ride through Zurich on a warm & sunny day…

I’m really looking forward to the Street Parade, a huge techno festival which will take place on Saturday in Zurich. Don’t miss it if you’re around! Already been planning on what to wear for some days… Continue reading

Today I had one of the most perfect Sundays I could have wished for! I had some of my good friends over for a summer brunch (summer still hasn’t quite arrived in Zurich, but we are making the best out of it!). We had loads of different delicious food: brownies, muffins, fruit, pancakes, Birchermüesli (a typical swiss dish made out of milk, yoghurt, fruit and muesli), cheese, ham and many other things. A big thank you to all my guests for an amazing morning!Image

Crazy for accessories- my new Furla bag

ImageI’m currently totally obsessed with accessories. At the moment I couldn’t imagine a better outfit than some plain colors combined with neon or flashy accessories. Yesterday I wen’t for some crazy shopping with my mum, we got lots of new bags from Furla and some other cool stuff at Max Mara (soon on the blog). I fell in love the moment I saw this beautiful Zizi Pochette, what do you think about it? Continue reading

Rain rain go away

ImageIt’s been raining like crazy in Zurich for what feels like a whole month. Thank God I’m studying for my exams, so I don’t really need to go out. Good thing about the rain & cold weather is that I get to wear my awesome Hunter wellies! Continue reading

Black and White

There were lots of fashion labels organizing workshops and stands, as well as a fashion show afterwards. I went to a workshop by Jungle Folk which was about marketing for conscious fashion. They have some pretty amazing and unique pieces, which are handmade in Columbia. Continue reading
