We spent one week on the beautiful island with our gorgeous family friends. We thought we’d like to share with you all.

Malta is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, that sits just above Libya and below Sicily – the perfect stop-off into Europe. It’s impossible not to love this lovely island, there is a year-round sunshine, more beautiful beaches, a vibrant nightlife and a very rich culture.

Valletta is the most beautiful city and a capital of the island. It is one of UNESCO World Heritage sites which is 500 years old. The gem is rich to see and explore, with fascinating historical buildings around every corner.

We spent a few hours in Valletta, we wandered up and down the narrow streets admiring the buildings, especially the doorways and we fell in love with everything we saw. We wish we had more than just a few hours to explore more in Valletta and this is definitely not a goodbye, we will be back!

We’re wearing a very colourful and gorgeous print dress with the bell sleeves from Nanawax. You can wear in two ways, top and dress with fashionable trainers that go with everything in your wardrobe.

Hope you are enjoying these pictures.

It’s always a bit sad to say goodbye to summer, we’ll miss the BBQs, summer styles, festivals and nice weather, until next year.

We always look forward to the autumn because there are so many reasons to love autumn. The cosy evenings watching TV, warm foods, and new styles! We get excited to wear our new styles for autumn, it’s all about the boots, chunky knitwear, boho dresses and lots of layers.

Heroda wears a boho dress from Asos which is on sale now, grab it before it’s too late! Boho is a very popular style, especially in Autumn. There are many ways to pull off a boho look in the autumn time.

Hermon goes for 70’s vibe with her flared dungaree with a colourful print top from Nanawax. Proving that a classic pair of denim dungarees can be so cute.

One of our favorite things about being women is empowering and supporting other women. We’re lucky to collaborate with this brand because we feel strongly to relate to the brand

“illicia is simply a reminder to us all that the choice is yours to make”

We love the styles Celina and Sofia, They are both beautiful bags, the timeless details that will work with so many of our outfits and our moods. Celina is more feminine for both a day to night look, it has an elegant round silhouette with a woven handle and detachable cross-body strap included.  Sofia is the perfect size for an everyday work bag, even a laptop would fit in. This is must a have bag

They created luxury handbags with interchangeable handles made handmade in Italy by master artisans, isn’t that amazing? We love interchangeable handles, there’s lots of colourful to choose to match your mood, which is a fantastic idea. With her quotes, she reminds us every day that we can be whatever we want to be, not to be afraid to adventure new experiences and never allow being deaf to limit our ambition. Disability doesn’t mean inability.

Her Brand

“Ilham started illicia in 2015 with a belief that women can distinguish themselves not only through the way they dress but also through the most important accessory every woman carries – handbags. The mode of self-expression, as well as her own vision to be the writer of her own narrative,  is what inspired her to start illicia.

illicia’s design philosophy is practical with a touch of personal choice, with emphasis on quality and craftsmanship. Our fine leathers are sourced from high-end tanneries in Italy and are made in Italy”

You have to have the courage to believe in yourself. If you truly want to follow your dream and make it come true. Go for it because you only live once.

We would like to share about the Artemoulas Studio because like we said in the previous post. Mykonos is also the most expensive island in Greece, in the high season, and can cost you a lot!

We stayed at Artemoulas Studio in Platys Gialos, to our surprise when we got there, George and his staff were brilliant, especially his mum, she’s a sweetheart and loves to hand out delicious chocolates. It’s a family business, we felt like a part of the family, which is another thing we love about Greece and its people. They’re willing to help whatever you need. George spent his time to explaining different place to visit, to eat and so on. Our room was spacious, very clean and comfortable.

The pool was perfect, especially the views from it. The beautiful beach was only 10 mins from our apartment and they have the best restaurants nearby and a bus to Mykonos town too. Everything was smooth, what more you could ask for?

If we came back to Mykonos, we would choose this again. If you’re planning to visit Mykonos and looking for an affordable stay, you’ll thanks us later!

Enjoy the post.

Hello!

Hope you enjoyed the Santorini post as much we did.

Sad to be leaving Santorini but 4 days was good enough for us because it was more of a relaxing and romantic one. We stayed in Greece for 10 days, so it was time for us to explore other Greek islands, where we’d heard about Mykonos as a party island with very nice and long sandy beaches. So we took a boat from Santorini to Mykonos for 65 euro each which was a reasonable price, we were so impressed with Hellenic Speedway High Speed 7. The ferry is big, spacious, comfortable and you have to book the tickets online if you want to visit the Greeks islands.

We have always dreamed of going to the beautiful Santorini and Mykonos, we were so excited that it became a reality to visit the place.

For those who do not know Mykonos, be prepared, is also the most expensive island in Greece, in the high season, and can cost you a lot! We will get back to you about where we stayed in Mykonos, stay tuned then.

We have to say that it’s incredible beauty and visually even better than we could ever have imagined. Mykonos is the winner for hidden gems and we loved walking around the narrow streets with beautiful traditional white houses and colourful doors, with deep blue oceans and it will never stop.

The Mykonos culture, the delicious food and especially, the nightlife were like nothing we have ever experienced, Mykonos people know how to have a good time and even the shops stay open til late. How cool is that?

Apparently, the nightlife in Mykonos is one of the best and liveliest in Europe. We’d have to say we loved the Queen of Mykonos, one of trendiest spots to start your night in Mykonos but be aware that it’s a bit pricey!

We found a lovely shop where you can find the most beautiful sandals made by hand and we loved everything in the shop. If you are looking for something unique, you’ll thank us later!

Little Venice and The Windmills are probably two of our favourite spot in Mykonos. Little Venice looks vibrant and colourful like we didn’t expect the real Venice looks. There are lots of various bars, and restaurant to watch the sunset across the deep turquoise sea and the windmills. A perfect place for romantic! Wandering a town with no plans is always a good idea.

OIA


Hello there!

Hope you enjoyed our post “We Heart Santorini – Imerovigli” If you haven’t seen it yet, here’s the LINK

And it’s not over yet, here we go!

The first thing we saw when we woke up the first morning, the views from our room every morning was just amazing. We couldn’t believe the breathtaking panoramic views stretching as far as the eye could see in Imerovigli. We were thinking are we really in Santorini? We had to pinch ourselves to make sure it was real!

We’ve decided to take a walk from our hotel to Oia. We happily agreed to go ahead to do this walk on a recommendation from our hotel manager, we were told that the walk from Imerovigli to Oia could take up to 3 hours. We love getting out of town because there are so many places to just sit and admire the view in every stop. The funny part was that we end up hiking in sandals and dress. Everyone looked at us in a good way and they probably said we must be crazy, haha.

The walk is the toughest for Heroda in her sandals because Heroda hadn’t experienced it before and Hermon had it in South America. The most challenging part of the walk was going down a long, steep, rocky hill. We were so determined to get there to Oia even the weather was hot. Hiking is the best way to experience Santorini, it’s easy to follow the awe-inspiring coastline. The view was jaw-dropping, incredibly beautiful from the darkest blue sea, caldera and interesting volcanos. This is one of those places where you are reminded that nature is purely natural and beautiful. As you keep on walking, you can see lots of little-whitewashed villages dot the edge of the caldera.

We finally reached Oia, we wandered a beautiful area of Santorini, with whitewashed buildings, blue domes and cobblestone streets, even though it was insanely busy and too crowded for us. We know how popular Oia is, the hot spot for Instagrammer, wedding photo and obviously sunsets. It can be hectic though. We stayed in Oia all day and catch the taxi back to Fira for sunset.

Tips:

Yes, it is possible to walk from Imerovigli to Oia in 3 hours, take your time, enjoy the walk, and soak up the views. Allowing between 4 and 5 hours would be ideal. Be sure to wear a comfortable pair of shoes, some snacks, and some water. Remember to wear a hat and sunscreen!

We are so glad that we planned to go hiking in Santorini, it ended up one of our favourite adventures, we would definitely come back in a heartbeat. Travelling with your brother or sister is important. It makes for better memories, a better appreciation of each other and a stronger relationship.

A pictures is worth a thousand words.

Enjoy!
