This is a very special place where my boyfriend and I love to get coffee when we’re in the area, or a nice glass of wine on some evenings. He was the one who introduced me to this cosy place.
I just love the vibe… the interior design is grand, in all the little details. They have mixed a couple of styles with chandeliers, vibrant colors, antique pieces. We feel at ease here, and it’s way nicer that any café because it feels private.
The first bit we’re at the Miramare Resort, in Agios Nikolaos. The second bit we’re visiting Lake Kournas, which was a dreamy place. And for the last, we’re at Kavos Hotel, not too far from Chania, and we swung by Seitan Limani for another crazy hike down the hill to get to a paradise beach. Unfortunately, I have no pictures from it since we left our things in the car. But trust me when I say, it’s the most beautiful beach I’ve seen in Crete.
After Belgrade, we drove to the city of Vrnjacka Banja, which is famous for their spas; the water there is amazing.
We spent the first nights at the Hotel Fontana. They have a marvelous spa area, and great massages. But then we switched for the Hotel Tonanti, which is a five stars hotel complex, and our stay there was superb. The pool area was definitively my fave.
Before coming to this place for a relaxing time, we stopped at the city of Grocka to eat on a splav : it’s a restaurant on a boat. It’s traditional to do so. We had seafood and grilled veggies.
Mornings are usually quiet because people are still sleeping off the night before, so use that time (if you’re awake) to explore the town and see its many wonders. Go through the hotels and check their areas, and absolutely do not miss the best place to go on a shopping spree, which is The Forum Shops at Caesar’s.
Don’t go by foot everywhere : The Strip is pretty huge, and you’ll get tired with the heat and dryness from the desert; by the way, don’t forget to carry a bottle of water and chapstick. You have two ways of traveling with public transportation : The Deuce bus, which is really practical as it reaches all parts of town. Also, the Monorail (my personal favorite), but it only goes through the main hotels.
Visit the beautiful gallery at the Bellagio that currently displays a collection of Cirque du Soleil sculptures. While you’re there, see their botanical garden and the fountains ! They shoot water so high up in the sky, it’s almost unbelievable. Then go on a ride at the Big Apple Coaster at New York-New York.
Take the time to go all the way to the famous “Las Vegas Welcome Sign” and get you instagrammable picture there ! It’s super iconic and has vintage feels.
Here’s my OOTD for our first day out in Vegas. It’s a super casual and comfy ensemble, I find it somewhat feminine, which clashes with most “styles” you can see on The Strip. But what can I say, I like to keep myself classy.
The jumpsuit is from Target, they actually have a wide variety of clothes and they got better over the years, so you should definitively check it out : you’ll be nicely surprised. My shoes are wedge espadrilles from Castaner, they make your feet & legs look so cute. The watch is Daniel Wellington, it’s gold with a dark brown leather bracelet. My glasses are Chanel ! Of course 😘
Oh, and makeup-wise, for those who want to know what I use for my brows, it’s Benefit‘s “goof proof eyebrow pencil” in 4. If you visit the City of Sin, I will recommend you dress well and check the luxury places, that’s a whole other side that most people don’t think to explore but it’s so worth it.
