  • Life in L.A. #2: Giant balloon dogs and egg sluts!

    I had seen enough Infinity Room selfies on Pinterest and Instagram! Visiting The Broad Museum had been on my mind ever since I got to L.A. and it was time to go. This new contemporary art museum in DTLA is getting more and more popular every day, hosting over 2 000 works of art including pieces by Barbara Kruger, Andy Warhol, Chuck Close, Jeff Koons, Roy Lichtenstein and Yayoi Kusama (a full on an exhibition of hers is soon to debut *squeaks with excitement*). It’s getting more and more popular with queues going around the building to get in. Luckily, I had the fantastic opportunity to visit it with a Press Pass (thanks to the lovely people at the Broad!), which enabled me to skip the line both for entry and for the Infinity Mirror Room. If you’re a blogger, I highly would recommend applying for one of these, at it…

    Life in L.A. #1 : Pardon, I don’t speak French + Wall of the Week

    I face-timed my mum one last time before I closed my obnoxiously pink suitcases and once again headed towards the airport. During the last year, flying across Europe every two months became something normal. I became a pro at packing two to three months worth of clothing in a suitcase. I downloaded all of the available apps for managing trips. I also pretty much memorised my passport number. Anyways, back to the talk I had with my mum – after she gave me her typical ‘before-departure-did-you-bring-everything-mum-talk’ she told me a story. When she went to the USA, I was around 2-3 years old. After she came back, I went on a trip with her to the Rhodope Mountains. As we were driving, I apparently had noticed the sun reflecting on a mosque’s dome and had screamed: “Mummy, look America!” Apparently, I had no idea what “America” was, but it did…

    Travel Diaries: #MyMilano

    I’ve been back in Bulgaria for some weeks now. I was itching and scratching to get somewhere. One day, randomly *like always* I asked a group of friends if they fancied to make a trip to Italy. Obviously, as you’re reading this post, they said yes. Milan was on my bucket list for the last two years. I always planned to go but never got to it. With this said, you would imagine how  excited I got the moment I got the confirmation email from RyanAir for my flight! Right after, I spent more than I should have scrolling through Instagram, reading TripAdvisor reviews and watching YouTube videos about the city. A lot of people say that there isn’t too much to see in the city and it’s very industrial and grey, but nevertheless I went out with an open mind. Fashion capital of the world or not, Milan has…

    Travel Diaries: 9 Potatoes in Lanzarote

    It was one of those gloomy, typical English days right before the final deadlines when your mind naturally thinks of everything else but your project. Procrastinating, as usual, I was scrolling through flights back home because I wanted to go back since I had nothing more to do here in London. As I was speaking to my mother telling her which flight to book, suddenly, my phone rang. One of my high school friends who now studies in Warwick called me and said something in the lines of: “Hey, we found this amazing villa and cheap flights to Lanzarote, wanna come with us?” My eyes widened with excitement. Lanzarote, part of the Canary Islands. Aka paradise. I instantly opened Skyscanner and found the flight. It took me probably 5minutes to book it. As soon as the thought of actually going on holiday so soon sunk in my mind, I realised I’m actually…

    2016 Recap: The Problem with New Year’s Resolutions

    It’s that time of the year – you’re scribbling down your New Year, New Me stuff  on a napkin during a Christmas party or you’re neatly writing them on the first page of a journal labeled 2017. It’s the time to write down all of those things you wanted to do this year (or the year before), but didn’t. It’s the time to get a fresh new start and change your being for the better. New Year’s Resolutions are always a fun activity, but there is one major problem with them – you. Probably 3/4 of the world’s population drops their resolutions by January 7th. I’ve been scrolling through my Facebook news feed, reading countless statuses moaning about how their year sucked, how it’s the end of 2016 and they’ve improved nothing. Well, guess what Sherlock – the only thing stopping you is yourself As I can assume through social media, 2016 was kind…

    The Cheesy Christmas Post : 2016

    December – a month of orange peels, crackling wood, burning candles, red (sometimes rose) wine, blanket scarfs and fluffy socks. A month of festivities, building up to a single day – Christmas. What is Christmas? It’s the tenderness of the passing days, the value of the present and the expectation of the future. For my 19 years (and a half), Christmas has always been my favourite holiday. This year, being away from home for nearly 3 months for the first time in my life, made me anticipate it even more. Even though we don’t do anything too fancy or special around Christmas, my holiday spirit was on it’s peak. I had my presents planned out (even though I got most of them of 23rd Dec, oops!), wrapping sorted and decorations set up. As the day finally came, I’m currently laying on my bed with a food coma, jamming out to…
