I wanted to share with you my photo diary from my last trip to Sicily, which was my first time on this beautiful Italian island. It’s definitely my favourite country for summer getaways, because of the weather, the architecture, the nature, the food and very nice, friendly people. I was there for a week, which was long enough to explore the west and the south side of the island. First thing you need to have in mind while planning your holiday, is that Sicily is huge, renting a car is necessary to travel around, otherwise you might be stuck in a hotel which is often located far away from the city center. Okay, maybe there is an exception. I know one beautiful hotel where you can definitely spend a week without having a car (only transport from the airport has to be arranged – it’s 2 hours driving). Casa Talia, the lovely boutique hotel located in Modica, south side of the island. I felt like I was in the perfect place where I could live with my future husband till the end of my life, have kids, eat breakfast with them in the garden under the shade of the olive tree and just be the happiest person in the world. I know it sounds a bit unrealistic, but I guess you know what I mean. Some people might not agree, but a hotel for me is not just a place where you sleep and eat breakfast. It’s a place which makes the whole holiday experience unique and special, where the interior inspires me for changes in my own flat, finally a place where I’m creative and get big new ideas. A hotel not only has to be impressive but you have to feel like home. Casa Talia is definitely the place where I felt like home. I can highly recommend you choose it for your summer holidays.

Sporty swimwear is definitely my favourite. Not only for training at indoor pools or the gym, but also for summer trips by the sea. There is no doubt, Calvin Klein does the best sporty swimwear. Every women with a different body shape would find a suit that fits both halves of their body.
If you’re wondering where these pictures were taken? It’s Ischia, a very beautiful island in Italy, right next to Capri, where I spent a week of pure relax. Mezzatorre Resort is a paradise located only 10 minutes from the main harbour in Ischia. To get to this paradise we had to take pretty much all possible forms of transport: bus, plane, bus ferry and taxi, which took us the whole day. But trust me, the long journey was worth it! Mezzatorre has its own private park, pool, beach and spa, as well as few restaurants with great Italian food. The area is huge, so you can be sure to find a quiet spot to read a book or just sunbathe. If you’re planning summer holidays, definitely consider Ischia! It’s just as beautiful as Capri but less touristy.

Diary photos from my trip to a beautiful Italian island Ischia. It’s located near Capri, we had to take a ferry from Naples, which was my very first time using this form of transport. Ischia is one of the most beautiful places I’ve been. I know I know, I say that almost every time I visit new place, but it really impressed me so much. I was wearing mostly swimwear all day long or some light pieces as shorts, t-shirts and jumpsuits. Akollekt jewellery was a touch of elegance to my summer looks. I hope my photos give you an inspiration to visit Ischia next summer!

One of the best place I’ve stayed!
I’ve just come back from Italy, Amalfi Coast. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve been so far, I would say it beats even Santorini. I had a pleasure to organize my trip together with Sarenza, an online shop which offer a lot of must-have styles, from shoes to bags and accessories. You’ll find there many well known high street brands, but also an exclusive European brand Georgia Rose. I was looking for sandals, which are pretty and comfy at the same time, so that I could walk around Amalfi Coast the whole day. I picked the white leather sandals which suit to every single summer outfit and turned out the most comfortable shoes I had for a long time. They are also available in pink version, if you’re looking for something even more girly. Below pictures you can see my selection of other summer shoes from Sarenza I keep an eye on.
