WEEKEND IN RIGA

Monday, April 9, 2018

WEEKEND IN RIGA

THE PLACE

…is the capital of Latvia - Riga. The weather is cold even for April. Snowflakes flying. But the beauty of the city is breath-taking. Around almost every corner you find completely different architecture, colours, and atmosphere. 


My boyfriend and I have been planning a city break for awhile now, and this time we decided to go for a place we have never been before. Somewhere less likely to go when thinking of going on holiday. Exploring and discovering new cities, cultures and cuisines is always exciting, especially when it’s done with your partner in crime!


THE HOTEL

…is The Redstone Boutique Hotel, situated right in the heart of Old Riga. The most stylish and Instagrammable hotel I’ve ever seen! The building consists of 11 suites with varying categories from Prestige Superior to Royal, and Imperial Suite. Each one bespoke designed, inspired by the art, historic and cultural heritage of Old Riga.

Redstone Boutique Hotel, Skarnu Street 11, Riga, Latvia

THE INTERIOR

Can you imagine my surprise when I opened the door of our room (we were in the Royal Suite) and the most beautiful and aesthetically pleasant pink interior appeared in front of my eyes! Pink walls, pink doors, pink furniture, even a pink air conditioner!! In addition to that: massive panoramic windows in each room (including the bathroom!) with a beautiful view to the Old Town, chocolates left on the pillows, stereo music coming from the ceiling installed speakers in every room, and a Nespresso coffee machine only for me! (Fil doesn’t drink coffee.) Ultimate goals! 


THE FOOD

…was as Instagrammable and amazing as the interior! The breakfast is included in the package and it’s served in bed (literally) between 7-11am. You pick the time. What Fil and I tried (and I’d recommend) is the granola with blueberry and yogurt, the cheese selection with homemade bread (so delicious!) and the omelette with cheese. As for drinks, I had freshly pressed orange and Fil had apple juice. 


THE TOWN

It’s really hard to compare Riga to other places we’ve been to. As I said, each street transports you to a different world! The different parts of the Old Town reminded us of Amsterdam, Paris, London, Berlin, Milano, Corfu (in Greece) and even Sofia (in Bulgaria). So impressive!  

The other thing to notice is the colourfulness of Riga! I’ve been to so many places, but I don’t remember seeing such an artistic and colourful city before. Each building is painted in a different shade, it’s hard to see a plain white one. Even the cobbled streets were deeply coloured!  


THE TRIP


We flew with Wizzair from London Luton Airport and the flight took around 2 hours. This time we went for the Wizz Plus option which includes Speedy Boarding and a up to 32kg bag in addition to your cabin one. I’ve never been sat in the front of the aeroplane before and I didn’t realise how much of a difference it makes! If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile or following me on Instagram, you’d probably know how much I love to travel! However, what you probably don’t know is that I have a very sensitive stomach and get very “travel sick”, so the actual transportation is the worst part for me in every trip. This time though, I am not sure if it was the front seating factor or the lack of stress when it comes to packing, knowing that I have enough space in my big suitcase and not having to worry about fitting everything in my small cabin bag, but I felt much better. The flight went quick and was a pleasant one! 


THE FINANCE

If you’re lucky enough you can get a flight with Wizzair from London to Riga for as little as £22.99.

The currency in Latvia is euro. Fil and I exchanged £100 to have for food and transport in Riga, and that was enough for our weekend stay.

The taxi from the airport to the hotel (11km disctance) was 12 euro.   

Here’s my pro-tip: before visiting a new place, I always spend some quality time in reading through TripAdvisor and writing down the best (and most affordable) activities and restaurants around where we stay. This way we can try as many new cuisines and explore as many sides as possible without having to spend a fortune. It’s a big money and time saver, especially if you travel on a budget like us. 

This was my list of “must try food places in Riga”: Folkklubs Ala Pagsabs, B Burgers, Spitaki, Food Box, Ezitis Migla, Terra Restoranti, Picas Meistars, and Big Bad Bagels.

I’d totally recommend the Big Bad Bagels. Super yummy bagels and fresh smoothies on great price!

Big Bad Bagels, Maskavas street 4, Riga, Latvia

THE CONCLUSION


We had an incredible weekend! It was indeed the city break we needed. Isn’t it incredible that we live in time that allows us to travel to so many places in the world, and within just a couple of hours you can be in a complete different place, with different sights, different people, and a whole new experience?!



Where shall we go next? Any recommendations?

HOW TO WEAR STRIPES

Hey, mademoiselles! It’s been awhile since my last post, but if you’re following me on Instagram, you’d know that I’ve been travelling and it was so hard to keep up with all my social medias at the same time. But I’m back on track now, so let’s talk fashion!


I asked you on Instagram, are you more of a POLKA DOT or a STRIPE person, and the majority of you replied Stripes, so in today’s post I wanna show you how I personally like to style stripes (check the pics above) as well as my favourite colour and garment combinations when it comes to this trend.  
If you’d like to see more inspo, here’s my Pinterest board too. Feel free to join it and spread the stripe love across the universe.  

Now let’s get started!

What I’m wearing…




HOW TO STYLE STRIPES:


STRIPES + NEUTRAL COLOURS (black, white, nude, taupe, grey)




STRIPES + PASTELS (baby pink, lilac, mint, peach)




STRIPES + STRIPES (big YES to stripy suits and two-pieces!)




Let me know how do you wear stripes in the comment form below! xx

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

ALL BLACK EVERYTHING

Hey, Mademoiselle S mafia!

It’s been awhile since my last outfit post, so I here’s a quick style update. You might have seen this look on my Instagram and my Youtube channel already, but I liked it so much, so I thought why not immortalise it in a blog post too. After all, I started this blog with the idea of sharing my everyday’s style inspirations and ideas. 

I’ve also made this ALL BLACK EVERYTHING wishlist with my favourite fashion buys and I wanted to share it with you. I’ll definitely go for the fluffy flip flops as I’m going on a holiday this weekend, so let me know in a comment below if you have any faves too.

Outfit details… / С какво съм облечена...



 Хей, Mademoiselle S мафия! 

Мина пак доста време от последната ми модна статия, така че днес ще споделя с вас един бърз аутфит пост. Ако ме следите в Инстаграм и Youtube, най-вероятно вече сте виждали някои от тези снимки, но тоалетът, с който съм облечена, ми харесва толкова много, че си казах, защо да не му отделя и блог пост. В крайна сметка, стартирах блога си именно с идеята да споделям ежедневните си стайлинг импровизации и вдъхновения, за да поглеждам назад и да си спомням деня, мислите и емоциите, стоящи зад всеки един отделен тоалет. Споменавала ли съм ви, че имам сколоността “да помня в дрехи”? Това означава, че когато видя един тоалет, моментално се сещам за всичко свързано с него. Т.е. къде е бил носен, кога, чувствата, мислите, енергията, всичко случило се в съответния ден, в който аз или друг човек е бил облечен с дадения тоалет. Например, когато приятелят ми ме попита “Помниш ли онази вечер, в която бяхме в онзи ресторант…”, нещото което трябва да ми каже, за да си спомня за дадената вечер е с какво е бил облечен (той или аз) и съответно ако се сетя с какво той или аз съм била облечена, мозъкът ми моментално сглобява останалата част от картината. Има ли други от вас с такава странна визуална памет?


По-долу съм направила и wishlist с любимите ми черни находки в онлайн магазините, от които най-често пазарувам в момента. Както най-вероятно вече сте забелязали, обичам да подреждам идеите си визуално. Имаме ли съвпадащи фаворити?

POLKA DOT MONDAY

Monday, March 12, 2018

POLKA DOT MONDAY

As someone who is quite simple and minimal when it comes to defining my style, I’m seriously surprised how obsessed am I right now with the polka dot trend! I mean seriously! Look how cool those trousers are! When I first put them on, my sister was like “What’s that?! Are those pyjamas??”. And to be honest, they felt like pyjamas. So bloody comfy! However, after I was done styling my look, she said “Actually, I hate to admit it, but you look quite cool. Those pants aren’t that bad!”. 

I had some time spare today, so I put together a little wishlist of my favourite polka-dot garments currently available. Okay, I want them all… badly! Which one is your favourite?

What I am wearing... / С какво съм облечена на снимките...



Като човек определящ вкуса си като “минималистичен” и “семпъл”, дори на мен ми е чудно как този панталон на точки се озова в гардероба ми. Когато го обух, сестра ми се обърна и ме попита -“Каква е тази пижама?? Не ми казвай, че ще излезеш така навън!”. Комбинацията на панталона, обаче, с бял пуловер (една от дрехите, които, според мен, всеки трябва да има, както споменах в последното си видео), класическо палто в основен цвят и бели маратонки, не само че се получи супер приятно и както някои от вас написаха в Инстаграм - “инстаграмъбъл”, но се хареса дори и на сестра ми!  

По-долу направих селекция с любимите си находки (с този принт), които намерих онлайн и искам да имам в гардероба си! Коя от долните дрехи ви е фаворит?
