Fashion in Turin – part 1

Fashion in TurinYes dear readers, another trip to Italy for only one reason: to show you the fashion in Turin… Right.. I knew you were not going to believe that haha. Of course the main reason is seeing Dan, whom I met through her blog The Pretty Cute. And she discovered my blog at the same time. We both have an extreme love for Max Mara and its sub brands, so a visit to Dan, means a visit to the outlet of Max Mara. Which is in Turin. View Post

Turin and Daniela

Turin with Dan Oct 2015 (45)_LRWhat can I say? Visiting Dan in Turin is such a delight. The flight is only  1 1/2 hour, cost just over 100 euro (return flight) and takes me to a friend who is always so happy to see me. As I am so happy to see her. Amazing that such a deep friendship can come from just blogging. English is not our native language and expressing yourself is so important to get to know the real person. Nevertheless there is a soul connection which covers the blancs in our conversation. View Post

Visiting Dan in Italy

SAM_5524_LRThis is a picture of friendship, of two people who hardly knew each other two months ago and now are friends. It was taken when I was visiting Dan in Italy. She is a blogger like me (The Pretty Cute) and visited me in July (see here and here). Our time in Amsterdam together was so nice that I booked a flight a week after she left, to see her place. The fact she lives near two big outlet places with dream brands like Missoni, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Max Mara… you name it, added to the fun of course.

Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela

SAM_4903_LROn day two of her visit, I explored Amsterdam and Haarlem with Daniela. Well… explored…the weather was unkind and forced us to sit inside a lot. Lots of rain showers. We started in Amsterdam, near the Amstel and Staalstraat, where Waterloo square is. View Post

Showing Amsterdam to Daniela

Daniela and meThe best thing about blogging is the contact with other women, especially (but not only) bloggers. One of my great fellow bloggers is Daniela, better known as Dan from the blog The Pretty Cute. She is a very elegant Italian lady who invited me to visit her in Italy. But as faith had it, she came to The Netherlands before I could book a flight. Of course one of my major “tasks” was showing Amsterdam to Daniela. After all, I had not been publishing all those posts about Amsterdam for nothing (see the tab Amsterdam at the top navigation of my blog). View Post
