Ready Set Go

While some people may have problems committing I can proudly say that I’ve not only committed once (to my husband) but twice, to sneakers, which incidentally happens to be the longest relationship of my life. It doesn’t matter if they are the trend of the season or not, I’ve always preferred sneakers over everything, day or night, summer or winter. And because I’m not a trend shopper when it comes to sneakers I’m very picky in choosing only comfortable, cool and timeless pairs: like the Stuart Weitzman SW-612.

A Not so Versaillesy Outfit

I love the crazy weather of Europe, making hysterical temperature swings from 10 degress to 30 degrees, then 15 the next day.

Especially the gardens, the wisteria. It is the peak of all tourist activities in the world, but I made a promise to myself – last 3 days are all walking & shopping.
