Currently In Milan

YESSSSSSS and can you tell that I'm excited by the capitalisation of my "yes" plus the multiple S's?

I was actually just here last year in July/August during the summer when it was really hot, but since it is currently winter now I am experiencing the city in quite a different way. I have all my winter essentials with me but this time I have a new addition: heat packs stored in pockets to warm my hands which are SO cool and handy.

I mean, they're literally very warm, yes, but they're also (metaphorically?) really cool.
(You know what I mean.)

The coolest (and accurate size-wise) chocolate pumps

Another thing to make this trip (kind of but perhaps not really) more interesting than the last: Milan Fashion Week, which ended today. Obviously I'm not the kind of blogger who goes to fashion weeks but it's still exciting to be near one, especially when I accidentally caught Dolce & Gabbana's last and very public show (!) at the La Rinascente store near Duomo di Milano yesterday.

It is common knowledge that Italy = AMAZING gastronomy, but I am appreciating that even more on this trip; I think I may have tasted THE best hot chocolate (with a mountain of whipped cream) ever and also ate the most delicious salad I ever had in my entire life. Amazingly, they both come from the very same restaurant!
PS: Panini De Santis in La Rinascente!

I suppose the downside is they happen to be in Milan and not where I permanently live, but let's concentrate on the positive notes, shall we?

    Lil' elevator selfie

    Talk to you guys soon! In the meantime, how about checking out my Italy outfits from last year's trip?


    1. Oh YUMMMMMM!!!! I actually stared at the salad and rolls and hot chocolate for quite some time before starting to read your post!:-):-)
      Once again I'm envious of not only your travels but the opportunity to enjoy a world of authentic cuisine!
      You look cozy and cute in that elevator but I LOVE the metallic grey, pleated skirt so much!! Love Jude

      1. Oooh the pastries and drinks here are the best, I am thoroughly enjoying filling up my belly so far!

        I actually considered bringing the pleated skirt on this trip (it would be interesting to style it for winter I think) but my bag was getting full and I had to weed out the lesser practical options, oh well!

    2. Food.
      Shoes made of food.... Is this heaven???

      1. If they were free I might consider it to be true! But nope unfortunately I didn't even try it, one shoe looked too much to be shared between two people. They do look too pretty to be eaten though. I did try other desserts from the same place and omg they were absolutely DELISH.

    3. You are one adorable woman! Hahah, I really love that elevator selfie post. My mouth is watering looking at your BOMB food and drinks. Urgh, why must I be up this late and stalking you on your blog? Even I can't say. I want that salad too please. Are those chocolate pumps for eating or have I completely missed the memo? :D x

      1. I took an elevator selfie at my hotel every chance I got - something I don't really do, but the mirror was too big to resist! Ohhh the salad was SO GOOD. And yes, the chocolate shoes are meant for eating!!! Unfortunately they were much too pricey, and I doubt I could finish one of those chocolate shoes in a week even if I were to share it with Shah!
