Cyprus - Aphrodite's island

Another place where I went is Cyprus..I went there at the end of August,so it was very hot!and when I say HOT I really mean it!! It was like 46-47 degrees during the day and at night the temperature was something between 30-35 I think..Lucky me that the hotel room had air conditioning ..the hotel was old ,in a british style,but clean and had nice staff!
As you know ,Cyprus is divided in two- not officially ,but the northern part belongs to the turkish people and the south is inhabited by the greek speaking Cyprus people (don't worry,they also speak english as Great Britain used to own the island in the past..but I'm not gonna go into history ;) )
I was in the southern part..stayed in Larnaca. I must say before I get any further that every country and every place has its own unique beauty and it impresses you always with something new!
In Cyprus I felt a more history connection..a connection with the Hellenic culture that lays here..I'm a fan of greek mythology and you can really feel that "protection of the Gods " in your stay there..that endless beauty,that burning sun..those magical nights when you can hear the greek music from the boats in the harbor..



And if that doesn't convince you,then the crystal waters and magnificent caves of the region Ayia Napa will!!!


For tips of what to do there I would recommend :


        1. Renting a quad and going for a drive in the desert (don't worry ,you have a great road to drive on) and go to Capo el Greco from where you can see the lovely blue lagoon. Also you can drive around and take advantage of the wonderful landscapes 







       2. Another fun thing to do is going to the Camel park of Mazotos. It's a bit far from the city..you can either take a bus or a taxi,but I guarantee it's super fun!you can actually take a ride on the camels and take pics with the animals .To end the day ,you have a great restaurant at the end of the park  

          



         3. If you like mythology and history, you have Apollo's temple and most important ,the "star" of the island- Aphrodite's birth-stone, and no,it's not a shell like in Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" painting. You also have some archeological sites and places loaded of history..Actually Cyprus is a living history as locals can tell you stories of how they have been kicked out of their houses and forced to leave their lands because the turkish people occupied the northern part of the island very brutally,leaving innocent people out on the streets.It's really sad.. 

          


        
  Cyprus is a fabulous destination if you want to enjoy a hot sun, superb waters and clean beaches!Also the club life is always high ,mostly in Ayia Napa. And either you take boat tours with fishing in the Mediterranean sea or snorkeling , or whale and dolphin watching; it makes a great vacation for family,for a group of friends or for a couple!

Day at the office

Hi guys, Can you imagine that we've already arrived at the middle of the week? I know most of you work at the office and indeed, sometimes it gets lonely having to stay at home and not having a closet packed with office clothes, but I still wanted to show off a really cute office look that I personally would wear to work !  Since my Manfield shoes have a 70s vibe to them, I thought I should add a more feminine touch in the upper part of my outfit, just to sweeten the deal. Now these shoes can be worn in many ways and you can definitely play on the masculine style and wear them with a pair of pants, in a suit..you know, go full rogue in that direction. But here, I wanted to build a softer look. The shiny leather is quite an unique touch to the shoes and the thick heel makes them a comfortable pair of shoes that you can actually walk in and stay all day at the office. Add a pencil skirt, a pair of tights and an envelope clutch and you're good to go for this Fall ! 









What I wore:

Dusk till Dawn

Hello lovelies, As you can imagine, I'm totally in love with ZYAN feat Sia's new song ! In that vibe and combined with Fall weather, I'm happy to bring you the new outfit of the day, a look 100% 3Suisses. Recently they added the Next brand that I love very much and am happy to have chosen a look that will blow you away ! 












What I wore: - Next dress from 3Suisses - Next booties from 3Suisses - Next bag found at 3Suisses - Next earrings from 3Suisses - Next puffy key chain from 3Suisses
That way you have direct access to every piece of my outfit ! I would like to mention that the booties are extra comfortable and yes, I wore them yesterday to the Brussels Gallery Weekend !  Hope you like the fashion mix :)

Kisses, R.
