Beach time in abu dhabi

 

Hey guys! As I already told you about a million times we left on Friday to Abu Dhabi. You may remember, that I won the flight tickets at the Mercedes Benz Contest. And well here we are! We had the pleasure to travel with Etihad in the Business class. What an experience I tell you! The staff was so friendly and we really, really enjoyed it (could get used to it, my boyfriend told me not to… haha). We are staying in the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, I’m totally mesmerized by its beauty. Actually about everythings beauty. Everything is so well done, with a big love for details, the streets are cleaner as in Switzerland, everywhere smells fresh and clean.

As you already know, we spent three days in Rome. Before leaving for Rome, we had a look on the internet for good tips on blogs, like which Hotel should we book and to which restaurants should we go. Unfortunately, we didn’t find anything helpful. So I thought about giving you some tips from our experience, to have it easier to book your next Rome trip.

Hotel: Mood44

In a quiet corner near the “Piazza di Spagna” we booked a hotel called Mood44, it was very spontaneous only 1.5 weeks before our flight to Rome. We are always a little demanding with hotels: it should be beautiful, clean, located in the centre and not too expensive. As you know, most of the time you have to compromise and take a not so nice hotel in the centre or a beautiful hotel far away from the centre. After a long search (which was the task of my boyfriend, since I’m so impatient in booking hotels) he found the hotel Mood44. A cute little, luxurious hotel near the Piazza di Spagna. It’s a Boutique Hotel, which opened about a year ago. Every single room (they only have about 6 or 7 rooms) is different from another and furnished with love. I think it was one of the biggest rooms I’ve ever stayed in and that for only 170 euro a night. And believe me, also the bathroom (which is most of the time so tiny you can’t hardly move) was huge equipped with a rain shower. The breakfast is either served on the rooftoop or in the room. The staff (Daniela & Co) was incredibly friendly. On our arrival, we sat down with Daniela and she introduced us to the most important locations of Rome. She gave us tips where we should go for lunch and – of course -shopping.

La Prosciutteria

While strolling trough the streets of Rome, we discovered a little takeaway/restaurant. In front of the unimpressive entrance a few people were sitting with a big wooden plate topped with the most delicious Italian dishes on their lunch table. Ham, salami, cheese, tomatos, different creams, nuts, bread, pesto and much more. We stopped immediately and entered. It was a very small take away, but everything seemed so familiar and so typical Italian.The atmosphere somehow reminded me of my childhood summers, which I spent in Italy at my grandparents. La Prosciutteria isn’t a restaurant (they don’t have a restaurant license) so it’s selfservice, but luckily you can sit in there and enjoy a delicious, cold Italian platters including delicious glasses of wines.

Dal Bolognese

Ever wanted to eat in a restaurant, where also Kanye and Kim, Mischa Barton or Karl Lagerfeld already  enjoyed dinner? So you have to visit Dal Bolognese in Rome. Since my boyfriends parents have been in Rome for a few times, they recomended us this restaurant. It’s a little expensive, but believe me, the fillet of beef was super delicious! Actually one of the best I’ve ever had (except the fillet at the Bürgli in Zürich, but this might be subject of another little guide about Zürich).

Numbs

Thx to the lovely German blogger called Cocoaroundthecorner (her blog is amazing) we found the restaurant Numbs. A very stylish restaurant near the shopping street. The service was super fast and the lasagne and the truffle risotto were delicious!

Sweety Gelato

Thx to an Italian reader, we ate a super delicous gelato near the piazza de fiori. This ice cream parlor called Sweety Gelato is concepted like a frozen yoghurt parlor, but not only with frozen yoghurt also with traditional ice cream. It was so yummi!

First of all: Merry Christmas to all of you! On Sunday we arrived here in Tenerife for a one week vacation. We stay in the hotel “Jardin Tropical” and it’s like an Arabic palace, so beautiful and huge and the staff is very friendly and helpful, if you should ever go to Tenerife this hotel is VERY recommendable (find some photos from the hotel on my IG: @vanessaciliberto).

It’s wonderful to have the possibility to tank some sun during Winter, but it’s also very strange to spend Christmas in the heat. It’s just not the traditional Christmas celebration with the Christmastree, snow and freezing weather but it’s ok for me (since I love the warm weather). Today I wanted to show you my Christmas look,  a golden sequin skirt paired with a nude top and my beloved Steve Madden Dynemite heels (I was so lucky to find them on Ebay, since they are almost sold out everywhere).

 We already took so many great photos, but unfortunately the internet connection is very bad here, so that it take almost 2 hours for uploading the photos to the blog, but I will surely show you them all as soon as I’m at home.

PS: Don’t forget to enter my 100$ voucher giveaway from Jollchic!

Again Merry Christmas lovelies, xxx V.

As I already told you or you may have already seen on Instagram, I spent the weekend with my four best friends: Sarah, Fabienne, Daria and Tamara. Since Fabienne is studying in Nice we decided to visit her for a few days. It was such a fun and crazy WE! I really enjoyed to spent some quality time with these girls. And I also have to say, that Nice is such a beautiful place! It was definitely not the last time, that I was there.

Wie ich euch bereits schon erzählt habe oder ihr über Instagram mitgekriegt habt, habe ich mein Wochenende mit meinen vier besten Freundinnen: Sarah, Fabienne, Daria und Tamara in Nizza verbracht. Da Fabienne seit anfangs September in Nizza studiert, haben wir entschieden sie für einige Tage zu besuchen. Es war ein echt tolles und verrücktes (oh jah haha!)  Wochenende, ich habe es so genossen etwas Zeit mit ihnen verbringen zu können. Ausserdem hat es mir Nizza echt angetan, so ein wunderschöner Ort, da muss ich unbedingt bald wieder hin.

I almost forgot about this pictures, which we took while our stay in Forte dei Marmi. Even if everything is super expensive in Forte, I totally love this cute place, definitely have to go there again. We were in a hotel called California Park (it was my birthday gift from Claudio), it’s so lovely and the people were really friendly. At the hotel we had the chance to borrow bikes, with which wie cruised around in Forte dei Marmi, great summer memories … :).

PS: On Friday I’m leaving for Nice with my best friends wuhu! Looking so forward to.

Fast hätte ich diese Bilder vergessen, welche wir während unseres Aufenthalts in Forte dei Marmi aufgenommen haben. Trotz dass in Forte alles so teuer ist, habe ich mich sofort in diesen Ort verliebt, da muss ich definitiv wieder hin! Wir wohnten im Hotel California Park (war Claudios Geburtstagsgeschenk an mich), es war total schön und das Personal war sehr freundlich. Im Hotel hatten wir die Möglichkeit Fahrräder zu mieten, mit diesen sind wir dann durch ganz Forte geradelt, wirklich ein tolles Erlebnis :).

PS: Am Freitag fliege ich mit meinen besten Freundinnen nach Nizza wuhu! Freu mich so.

TGIF wuhu! Even though my week was pretty easy, since my studies started on Monday and I only had about 4 lectures, I’m still happy that’s Friday. Let’s just hope the weather gets better, because it was raining the whole week here in Switzerland, just terrible.

So here we go with a further look, which was shooted in Italy and believe me it’s not the last one. In Italy it’s kinda normal to wear shorts with boots, here in Switzerland it’s not that common or may it’s just my opinion. I found these boots in a typical Italian “Mercato” and I knew I wanted to create such a typical Italian Boots/Shorts look and here it is. The boots in combination with my great Zara jacket  and the Coachella top build a cool and comfy outfit for the night( even if it’s already too cold here in Switzerland). How do you like it?

Juhuuu Freitag! Obwohl meine Woche, trotz Uni Beginn, nicht sehr anstrengend war, bin ich doch froh, dass es Wochenende ist. Hoffen wir mal, dass das Wetter wie versprochen bessert, denn es hat schon die ganze Woche geregnet, richtig schlimm.

Hier möchte ich euch ein weiteres Outfit zeigen, welches wir in Italien aufgenommen haben. In Italien ist es üblich Shorts mit weniger sommerlichen Boots zu kombinieren, klar gibt es das hier in der Schweiz auch, aber es ist wesentlich weniger verbreitet oder mir bisher einfach nicht gross aufgefallen. Als ich diese Biker Boots auf einem traditionellen, italienischem “Mercato” entdeckt habe, war mir klar, dass ich euch unbedingt einen solchen Shorts/Boots Look zeigen möchte. Die Boots habe ich mit meiner Zara Jacke und einem Coachella Top kombiniert und schon ist ein cooles und bequemes Outfit für den Abend geschaffen (auch wenn es bereits hier in der Schweiz schon wieder viel zu kalt ist). Was denkt ihr darüber?

Hey guys! I’m baack, ok not yet, but almost. One week ago Claudio and I left for Italy. We visited a lot of different towns and villages like Siena and Firenze.  Now we are staying for two days in Forte dei Marmi until we are leaving tomorrow for (probably rainy) Switzerland. Anyway we made a lot of amaaaazing photos, I just can’t wait to show you them, I’m pretty sure you will like them as much as I do.

As you can imagine I’m really sad to already have to leave tomorrow…. but like Nelly Furtado already sang a few years ago: every good things come to an end hahaa ;D . But for me Tuscany was the perfect end of Summer.

While our stay in Tuscany in the holiday home of Claudios family we shooted this light, but  yet chic look. I love the Tuscan landscape, since I’m a little girl travelling with her parents trough Italy and it hasn’t still lost the magic for me. So when I saw this location with its typical cypresses and a long path, which led to an old Tuscan villa, immediately the first shooting location was found.  I really like these photos, which represent the magic of the Tuscan landscape perfectly. What do you think?

Hallooo meine Lieben! Ich bin zurück, ok noch nicht ganz, aber fast. Vor einer Woche sind Claudio und ich Richtung Italien abgereist. Wir haben viele unterschiedliche berühmte Städte und Dörfer (Florenz, Siena etc) der Toscana besichtigt. Während unseren Ferien haben wir natürlich viele tolle Bilder geschossen! Ich kann es kaum erwarten euch diese alle zu zeigen, ich bin mir sicher, euch gefallen sie genau so gut wie mir. Auf jeden Fall sind wir für die letzten beiden Ferientage in Forte dei Marmi, bis es morgen Richtung (in die wahrscheinlich verregnete) Schweiz geht. Am liebsten würde ich natürlich noch etwas hier bleiben, aber wie Nelly Furtado schon vor Jahren sang: Alles Gute kommt zu einem Ende, haha ;D. Italien war für mich der perfekte Sommerabschluss.

Diese Bilder haben wir in der Nähe von Lari, während unserem Aufenthalt im Ferienhaus von Claudios Familie, geschossen. Die Landschaft der Toskana faszinierte mich schon als kleines Mädchen und sie hat auch heute ihren Zauber auf mich nicht verloren. Als wir ziellos durch Landstrassen fuhren, fiel mir dieser Ort sofort auf. Ein wunderschönes Bild: ein langer Weg, welcher zu einer alten toskanischen Villa führte, umgeben von hohen Zypressen. Die erste Shooting Location war gefunden. Wie gefallen euch die Bilder?

Even though the weather was not very nice, we had a really good time. We stayed at the Uptown Palace Hotel near the centre. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was clean and cozy. If you search a hotel in Milan for you next stay, the Uptown Palace Hotel is highly recommended.

In addition to shopping all day long, we ate delicious Italian food and slurped cocktails at the Aperol Spritz bar, from which we had an amazing view. As you can imagine I spent too much money haha ;)! But hey I’m not every weekend in Milan, so I had to use this possibility!

Wie ihr bereits wisst, verbrachten Claudio und ich das Wochenende in Mailand. Obwohl das Wetter nicht gerade überragend war, hatten wir doch eine tolle Zeit. Übernachtet haben wir im Uptown Palace Hotel, welches ungefähr 10 Minuten zu Fuss vom Zentrum entfernt liegt. Das Personal war überaus freundlich und hilfsbereit und das Hotelzimmer war sehr sauber und gemütlich. Also falls ihr auf der Suche nach einem Hotel für euren nächsten Mailand Aufenthalt seit, empfehle ich euch wärmstens das Uptown Palace Hotel.

Nebst Shopping den ganzen Tag lang, gönnten wir uns köstliches, italienisches Essen und schlürften Cocktails in der Aperol Spritz Bar, von welcher man eine tolle Aussicht über den gesamten Dom Platz hat. Wie ihr euch vorstellen könnt, habe ich natürlich viel zu viel Geld ausgegeben, aber hey, man ist ja schliesslich nicht jedes Wochenende in Mailand!
