Milano Hot Spots with the RE Cam by HTC

Exploring a city is so much fun and discovering the cutest cafés and shops is what makes travelling so special to me. Luckily, while in Milan for fashion week, we also had some time to wander to the Duomo, pick up delicious paninis on our way and do a bit of window shopping at Via della Spiga. Definite must-sees and hot spots when in Milan. However, it is not always fun to lug around a huge dslr camera. While the photos always turn out amazing, the weight sometimes makes me reconsider. Which is where my new best friend comes in: the RE cam by HTC. We were gifted one of the small and super handy new cameras, and you guys, I am obsessed! It is soo much fun, let’s you capture such good photos on the go and perfect for selfies (a blogger’s favorite). As part of the fun with our new toys, Anni, Kayla and I also got to sit down with stylist Alexis Knox for a chat about fashion, music and her #SelfieSchool – where you can tag your photos with questions and she’ll help you snap the perfect selfie. Kinda cool, right? But now, I’ll let the pictures do the talking – scroll to the bottom to see my favorite snapshots from the Milano hot spots, taken with my RE Cam.

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!!

TRAVELS: Sheikh Zayed Mosque

One thing, that you simply can not skip when in Abu Dhabi, is a visit to the Grand Sheikh Zayed Mosque. It is beyond anything I have ever seen, and even our second visit was just as impressive. The white and blue, paired with the palm trees, golden accents and stunning mosaic – soo beautiful! Pictures can’t really do it justice, but I tried to capture the beauty at least a little to give you an idea of the place. We where there just before sunset, which made the light even more magical …
