Beauty at its finest





At a evening at the Duomo, shopping as usual, I count help notice how the sunset illuminates the buildings in milan. It was so beautiful it was hard not to stare. The Duomo is definitely my favorite part of Milan. There is all kinds of stores, food, and a good time. You could stay around the duomo all day and not get bored. I always wondered why when you search Milan you saw the Duomo Cathedral... Now I know why! This place is mesmerizing, and the Duomo is a thousand times prettier in person. Stores here include: Rolex, Zara, Promod, H&M, Louis Vuitton, Prada, United Colors of Benetton, Armani, Marc Jacobs, Miss Sixty, Betsy Johnson, and much much more!! You have your not so expensive ready to wear to the Golden square of  fashion, which includes stores from the top designers around the world! It screams welcome to the fashion capital of the world!

A perfect day in Milan

Everyone have different definitions of their perfect day. Today, was one of my many perfect days. Knowing its sunny outside with beautiful architecture around you when you open your window, and let the sign shine in. Went to school, enjoyed the walk home in perfect weather, and enjoyed relaxing all day enjoying more pasta, feta cheese, tea ( of course) and fried potatoes. yum. a day with nothing you have to do & no definite plans. Now, blasting music, having a few drinks and getting ready for a night out on the town. Does that sound like a great day or what!?!?! with a 3 day weekend, I am excited to relax, sleep in, and plan my trip to verona on saturday! Ciao!!! :) Pics will be posted soon

Looking out my window

Sunday here in Milan seems so quiet compared to the US, church bells rang this morning ( woke me up) and my room mates and I stayed in all day enjoying cheese, crackers and tea. I love looking out my window seeing this clothing shop always busy. Its such a nice layout but I have yet to make my way to see what they have in store. On our lists for this week: finding a gym ( a better one than we have at our apartment), a tanning bed ( if there are any), going to the market to get fresh items, and of course, seeing what other fashion goods we can find! Tonight, we are having a simple spaghetti with garlic, cheese, white wine and fresh sauce. YUM!
--Pictures should be posted sometime early this week!

Shopping in Milano

Me and my room mates went shopping by the Duomo and it was crazy packed and sales are everywhere! Its that time of the season for sales! 2 leather jackets and a cocktail dress later and didnt put a hole in my pocket! The Duomo @ night is crazy beautiful! Pictures will be posted soon! :)

Fashion in Milano!

Being in Italy for only 5 days has already made me realize how different fashion is here compared to the US. Women don't really wear white sneakers ( you will see only a few), and what you see on the street most of the time is black, grey, tan... any neutral colors. That works for me because those are my favorite! Have you seen anything?!
