Sunday Nursery Visit

March 23rd  •  Posted in Lifestyle

After a feet-wrecking busy day up and about in Milan on Saturday (pictures of that day are on their way and will be on the blog soon!), we slept in super late Sunday morning, woke up and ate fresh croissants for breakfast, then kind of wanted to skip lunch (but we didn’t), just for finding ourselves itching for something easy and light to do on a grey not that much spring-like slow Sunday afternoon. Nursery visits to us are becoming kind of a weekend ritual – it must have something to do with the huge amount of greenery involved…

Is there anything more spring themed than nursery visits anyway? Not that I ever discriminate a trip in wintertime – there’s a beautiful local shop here that not only has the most amazing selection of plants and flowers and cute vases, but also the most beautiful installation of Christmas decoration during Holiday season! – but there’s something very interesting and refreshing about setting everything aside and immerging ourselves between a thousand different plants on a weekend.

* There’s something about cute vases and ceramics in general that has quite a charm on me recently! Just tell me these aren’t cute! *

While we are usually pretty loyal to our favourite nursery (just look at it and tell me the view isn’t wonderful!), since we weren’t around that area, we decided to head to something a bit different this time! It ended up to be a visit to a very old-fashion nursery with the biggest amount of indoor plants I ever seen, typical nursery glass walls and roofs and a few tools and objects I think I haven’t seen since the nineties! While I think that place could flourish with a bit of cares, I was so fascinated by the time travelling experience we got to have!

So what’s your favourite way to spend a slow Sunday afternoon after a busy wearisome week? x

P. S. :: It’s all the weekend that I’m obsessed with Steller Stories so I’ve decided to put together an account over there too – so if you’d like to follow me there, you can find me at this link! I’ve already created a story that goes hand in hand with this post, if you’d like to take a peek! I’m just super excited I’ll be able to share what I’ve always thought it was not that noteworthy to write a whole blog post over here… also I need someone to follow, so if you are on there too, be sure to let me know!

A Winter Sunday :: Christmas Markets + Macarons

The previous pictures are from yesterday’s afternoon when we decided to head over to town to embrace the Christmas spirit by browsing through the cutest Christmas markets. I’m such a fan of the festive period and any festive printed/themed thing that if there’s one thing that can make me willing to face the cold and the rain, that has to be Christmas shops or markets. Jam-packed with festive related tiny objects, Christmas decoration, snow & deer printed throws and decor elements, and a bunch of traditional market food like bretzels, crepes, pancakes, these markets definitely deserved a visit even if it was pouring rain and too many umbrellas were around.

We actually grabbed the opportunity to spend the afternoon browsing around town, finding shelter from the rain in inside shops, and eating handicraft colorful macarons we found at the markets – but after trying to snap some pictures balancing the umbrella on the shoulder and avoiding to smash the macarons along the way (which was impossible, I’d add), we gave up and ate them once in the car.

Those were one of the first Christmas markets this year to be around, however I’m sure there’ll be other occasions to spend a few more hours browsing through some traditional handicraft in the next few weeks before Christmas. And if you are one that can already feel the Christmas spirit and is feeling festive, I can’t suggest a better way to spend your Sunday afternoon this December – make sure to check out where and when to find the nearest Christmas markets this year here!

P.s. :: It’s the 1st of December, who is excited? Me? Yup.

Where to :: Eat in Milan | 001

September 23rd  •  Posted in Lifestyle

Now, I’m no expert of Milan by any means and I don’t even visit it as often as I would like to, however one of my goals for the next months is to visit it more frequently and discover new pretty places. You know I love to share, so I decided to start a little blog series where I bring you along in Milan finding out new places where to eat delicious food. Hopefully this will help some of you that are visiting Milan for only a few days, to choose a few places where to go and eat something nice, or just for you to enjoy seeing Milan from a screen for the moment!

Let’s start with some classics…

California Bakery is a place you want to visit. It has such an interesting history behind it and when I entered the little café for the first time and started wandering around looking at their delicious desserts I couldn’t help but think about the founder’s travels in the USA that made it all happen. It has a few Pinterest worthy cafes located in different areas of Milan, and there’s something about the decor, the white rusty floorboards and the retro vintage-ish feeling that makes everything more magical. This is definitely the place where I would love to work at my laptop all day, peaceful but alive at the same time. Their cakes and desserts look amazing and me and my boyfriend have decided we need to try them all at some point, however their pic-nic, brunch, bagels & sandwiches options all sound pretty amazing too!

Our favourite? The Cream Cheese Kid’s Brownie, mmm!

Whether you’ve been a tourist or you have lived in Milan for a while, you should have tasted a Luini‘s panzerotto at some point. However if you weren’t aware of the existence of this little spot of paradise, you won’t miss it out the next time! This is such a classic, if you’re in Milan you need to eat one of their panzerotti at least once, and I’m not even a fan of Luini’s prices however I can’t deny I still succumb to the temptation sometimes. Luini is an historical bakery right behind the Duomo that fries and sells the most delicious panzerotti in Milan. You’ll probably recognize it by the queue of people waiting for buying some at every hour of the day really, and even though their panzerotti wouldn’t make for a healthy mid-afternoon snack, I wouldn’t suggest to decide to visit it around dinner or lunch time (just trying to avoid you a good half an hour or more of waiting!).

Our favourites? The classic tomato and mozzarella panzerotto, and the ‘vegetarian’ with ricotta and spinach, yum!
