 Before I left for Marrakech I had a clear vision in my mind of what I would like to wear, mostly inspired by the Moroccan architecture and all the gorgeous fashion editorials shot here that I`ve been seeing in magazines throughout the years. So immediately after I booked my flight I also "booked" my Asos order. In my mind it was all about maxi dresses, colourful cover ups, and comfy sandals. And probably for the first time in my life I haven`t brought with me to Marrakech even one piece of black clothing. If you would see my wardrobe which is 80% filled only with black clothes you would know that this is quite something...I guess Morocco has this effect on people.

Moroccan Palaces


(Asos white lace maxi dress, Topshop sandals)

I`ve always loved Moroccan architecture and interiors and now that I`ve actually been there I love it even more. Everything looks so royal that I used to feel like a princess and the hotel was my palace :). I am now obsessed with redecorating the flat in London in Moroccan style. However that`s not such an easy task as Moroccans pay so much attention to details and mixing all the vibrant colours in a way that doesn`t make your house look like a circus is quite a hard task.

Marrakech nights are mysterious, hot, dimly light, and full of exotic smells and flavours. Four nights in Morocco are definitely too less to explore this country`s amazing culture and I`m already planning my trip back. 
I`ll be publishing a travel photo diary soon but in the meanwhile here is an outfit that we shot in our hotel before heading out for dinner on one of the nights for some tajines. I have never in my life eaten so many lamb tajines but how can you stop when they`re so delicious?

Mambo Italiano at Gola

I am a big fan of Italian food but who isn`t really? Comfort, hearty and delicious it`s hard not to get addicted to it. However I try to limit myself to maximum once a week (twice if I`m feeling extra naughty). A few evenings ago when the weather was still warm enough to pull out my new skort from Asos, we went for dinner at this little Italian place that looked adorable and the food didn`t disappoint either!

I really loved the attention to detail and although there were loads of stuff going on somehow it didn`t feel too busy to the eye. But then again I`ve always been a hoarder at heart so this place was perfect for me.

For starters we had the shrimps with chilli.

Then I had this amazingly good pizza with parma ham, parmesan and rocket salad. This has become my new favourite pizza.

My boyfriend had the ragu pasta dish which was very hearty and filling.

Really loved how they brought the bill in this miniature trolley full of lollipops. I love myself some lollipops.

I was wearing H&M striped top, Asos red skort (never though I`ll be a fan of skorts but they`re actually quite amazing and comfy!), Zara slingback heels.

Warehouse Style Me If You Can Blogger Film Preview


A few days ago I had the opportunity to attend a blogger breakfast at Warehouse store at Oxford Circus for the preview of their "Style Me If You Can" short film. For this campaign Warehouse asked customers to be their stylists of their AW collection which means real people had the opportunity to pick the outfits and the locations of the movie.

The movie follows this independent, about town young woman throughout her busy day: meeting with friends, job interviews, walking the dog, dating; and for each of these activities she has a new outfit (styled by customers).

I thought this was a very cute idea and definitely a different way of engaging with your customers. But enough talking, watch the movie below and let me know what you think!
