Pictures by James Vyn

A FAIRYTALE As a part of our collaboration with weekend4two, we have the opportunity each month to make you guys travel with us through the pictures of this blog and choose a new exciting destination. So we decided to go in Milan last week-end, not only because we’ve already been there and absolutely fell in love with the city but above all because the offer which weekend4two had was more than fantastic. If you check out their website, you can see that there are different trip packs and you can a have a look at the planning, you usually have a little dinner included in your stay, an entrance at the spa or something really sweet like that, so when we saw the hotel Chateau Monfort in Milan offer all we wanted to do is rush over there and make some beautiful pictures because it seemed too gorgeous. And sometimes you might think that pictures on the hotel’s official website can be over the top flattering and that it’s not really as nice in real life, well trust me it was. It was simply amazing. The hotel has got a very special spirit and interior design which is inspired by fairytales, a modern castle with a disney athmosphere. In this post you can discover general pictures of the place, I will of course show you some shots of our room which is totally worth to see. 

It was amazing to be surrounded by such a magical athmosphere, very inspiring as well. James and I loved discovering little details which bring so much to the hotel’s outlook, for example the little bunny statues you can find next to your feet at their lunch and drinks bar or the Snow White apples on the Rubaciori restaurant matched to the heart shaped chairs. Quite impressive. So we only stayed for one night, which was extremely short and we had to rush like crazy to be sure to do and see all we wanted to. So after making a couple of pictures at the hotel James and I went out in Milan’s town center for a little shopping and gelato time (ice cream in Italy is like nowhere else, believe me). Then as we had a dinner included in our weekend4two pack we came back and I simply switched for some highheels, adjusted my pony tail and was ready to rock the evening. Also another great news, I have started a little collaboration with Hermès, thanks to the lovely Yvonne I had the chance to take with me in Milan some Hermès jewerly and two beautiful bags which you were able to see in my goodies post. If you guys want to live the same experience as we did you can check out the Chateau Monfort offer on weekend4two by clicking here, or simply enjoy discovering the pictures!

I am more than excited to announce you guys a huge contest which I hope you’ll enjoy taking part in, as you know New York Fashion Week is approaching and Fashiolista is throwing an amazing opportunity for you guys to win a trip to the next NYFW held in September. The prize : 4 nights in an amazing hotel (7-10 September), an outfit from Revolve clothing and above all, access to two fashion shows!

Loved this post!
My facebook name is Gonul Duren btw

My little sister has been following your blog for a while but I only heard of you not a long time ago after reading one of your article in the ILLUSTRE. Among all the blogs I have read, yours is absolutely stunning. It doesn’t only rely on your fashion sense but also in the fact that James’s photography skills are becoming beyond amazing nowadays. Sometimes I run into him at the UNIGE library but he looks rather shy so it’s cool to discover both of your passion through this site.
I don’t get the chance to travel a lot, so thanks to you guys, you kind of bring me (and I think the rest of your readers) each time along with you on your trips. So I just wanted to thank you for making me sort of “traveling” :)
Also, I wanna ask one thing: what does “goodies” stand for? Have you received the Hermès/Chanel bags seen on the blog for free life a gift?
My sister fancies your blog and I’m worried she thinks she can make money with her blog.
Anyways, it would be nice of you to clear that point. Like whenever you buy something or when it’s offered by any brand. THANK YOOOU!!
