Hey guys!
I am in Tuscany right now in particular Chianti for a Blogger for Social + Help and Birth event.
These two organizations are planning to build a library in Senegal to provide children/ students books, computers and internet.
I always believe that the best help we could give Africa is education. Not food. Not clothes. Not water. Because all of these things ran out but if you educate a child, they have more chances to survive or make a better life for their family.
I immediately said yes, together with Chiara from The Blonde Salad, Veronica from The Fashion Fruit, Emilie from My Little Fashion Diary, Sofie from Fashionata, Filippo from The Three F, Alessandra from Little Snob Thing and Alexandera from Lovely Pepa, when they invited.
I finally could put good use of whatever fame (haha!) i earned by doing this blog.

Blogger for Social believes in word-of-mouth advertising and in new media. For these reasons it asks to bloggers to write about its events, so that the message gets as far as possible. The whispering of many is stronger than the shout of a single, isn't it?

The internet is so bad in the hotel right now, so these are the only pictures i could upload.
Will post more tomorrow from the party as well!
Here´s a peek of our vintage car tour today, exploring more of chianti!

aside from being so tired and kinda traumatized from travelling, i am not BITCHIN!!
life is a bully and i think it sometimes loves playing crazy pranks on me but yeah, we all still manage to stand up and go on!

shirt: COS * pants: ZARA * heels: ALEXANDER WANG * pashli satchel: 3.1 PHILLIP LIM * aviators: RAY BAN * watch: MICHAEL KORS

so after 4 flights and 2 missed ones (CRAZY, huh?), i am finally in borlange for the peace and love festival.
what is it with all these flight chaos/ mayhem?
i mean you sit on your gate 2 hours before boarding and the airline company just decides to change the gate and not inform you? YEAH.
anyway, i just wish the weather cooperates.
but so far so good.
sunny and GOOOOD looking swedish people, i can´t complain.

dress: LOVE * wedges: MATIKO via SOLESTRUCK * floral headband: DIY

apart from the fact that all swedish people (in my opinion) are beautiful and ├╝ber cool,
their midsommar parties are also a reason why i sometimes wish i was born in sweden. :)
so since i am asian ALL THE WAY, i decided to wear my diy headband just for fun
and be swedish for a day!
speaking of sweden, i am on my way for the peace and love festival!
catch ya later kiddos!

CHEAP BUT CHIC.

vintage quilted bomber jacket: MOSCHINO CHIC & CHEAP * shorts and pumps: ZARA * golf bag (on SALE!): ALEXANDER WANG

an amazing story about this jacket:
when i went to portugal some weeks ago, i spotted this jacket on a vintage stand on the festival site.
i asked for the price. a bit expensive for my taste. i walked away.
but i couldn´t for the love of god take it off my mind so i decided to look at it again and decide if it was worth the price.
another girl was manning the stand so i asked again.
she told me a price that was 1/3 of what the other lady told me.
without thinking, i gave her the money and walked away happy!
i hope the other lady didn´t kill her.
LESSON LEARNED: never give up on something you really want! haha
unfortunately this doesn´t work for that alexander wang bag on shopbop which page i keep on refreshing but somehow always shows me the same friggin price.
LOL

have a great weekend loves!

imagine having a 3 course dinner while playing fashion bingo with great wine, friends (Dustin, Josi, Jan and Maggie) and good music.
now imagine you´re in a boat sailing along the Spree river in Berlin.
that was exactly how my tuesday went.
amazing, no?
Zign and mint&berry invited me among other bloggers for a great night of food and fun!
it was a perfect getaway from reality (read: work and stress).
quick, but just the way i like it.

PS: if you have the chance, do visit my friend Josi´s blog (that´s her room on the pics).
i would exchange my whole closet for her´s in a heartbeat!
