OUTFIT: janessa leone

If the Instagram accounts you love are anything similar to the ones I follow, then you’ve probably heard of Janessa Leone. A talented young lady from L.A., who happens to make the most amazing hats I have ever seen. After months of lusting over the various models, Kathi and I did some “pretend” shopping online the other day at the office, and picked out all the hats we would theoretically buy. Little did I know that the sneaky lady was busy setting up an amazing group presents for my birthday brunch. So guess what I got from my wonderful friends for my 26th birthday? A hat! A stunning one, that is! Aside from the fact that I adore the fit and shape, it happens to be called Victoria. Pure love. End of story!

TRAVEL: 10 things to do in Abu Dhabi

For the last post from Abu Dhabi, I wanted to share my personal highlights from the trip, all round up in one big post! After a week in the city, I now love it even more than I did after our first visit. Almost 2 years ago, we visited Dubai for 6 days, prior to heading to the Maldives, and drove to Abu Dhabi for a day to see the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. This time around, we wanted to explore Abu Dhabi and get to know the city a bit better. Aside from sharing my hotel reviews with you guys, I also wanted to gather my personal highlights of what to do in the Emirat city. Personally, I always think recommendations from friends are so valuable, so hopefully my personal top 10 things to do in Abu Dhabi will help some of you when you’re planing your next trip:

HOTEL REVIEW: Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara, Abu Dhabi

Even though I am currently in full-on Milano mode from fashion week, I still have some Abu Dhabi posts for you guys, so hopefully you won’t mind all the switching back and forth! After sharing our first stop in Abu Dhabi with you guys (read the full review HERE), of course I also wanted to write up a review of the second hotel we decided on. One area of the city that had me interested right from the start was the Mangroves National Park. Say what? A national park in the middle of a city like Abu Dhabi … meaning: in the desert?! Yes! And it is absolutely breathtaking. We stayed at the Eastern Mangroves Hotel & Spa by Anantara and I have to say, I really loved it!!

OUTFIT: Milan Fashion Week – Day 1 with AIGNER

On Thurdsday afternoon, I hopped on a plane and headed to beautiful Milano for fashion week. Obviously I’ve been to a few fashion shows throughout the past 5 years as a blogger, but this was my first big fashion week – and it has been excited to say the least! I literally felt so overwhelmed when I was trying to pack my suitcase, which is probably why I packed more for 3 days than for an entire week in Abu Dhabi – but better be safe than sorry, right? One of my personal highlights was spending the day with AIGNER for a visit backstage and then seeing their show. For the first day in the Italian fashion capital, I decided to go with one of my all-time favorite pieces, super torn boyfriend jeans, paired with a stunning AIGNER cape (one word: cashmere!) and a gorgeous burgundy bucket bag from their upcoming a/w collection.
