Daily luxury_May πŸ’™

May is a beautiful month πŸ’™. Dreams of love and sweetness come to me like the turquoise sea caresses the white sandy beaches. Let’s go with the waves and start a new adventure! Do something beautiful that will make your soul happy. Leave on a trip to Bali, Hawaii, Costa Rica, Capri, learn a new language, learn to dive, swim in the blue sea, follow your dreams and intuition, write, collect photos, and love your life on a daily basis πŸ’™. A little daily luxury in your life is a sweet memory to collect. It can be anything; a beautiful day on the beach, a cute bracelet with turquoise heart or diamant earrings from Tiffany’s, dolci, white orchids, lovely white Liu Jo dress, beige Choo’s, the sunshine through palm leafs, ly’s and hugs from family, seeing Disney’s Moana another time…πŸ’™ Dream and love the daily luxury in your life.

La bella cittΓ  di moda Firenze

In the 1920’s a bellboy in a chique hotel started designing beautiful, handmade pieces of leather luggage and travel bags for the chic and wealthy in Florence, italy. Grace Kelly and Jacky Kennedy loved his fine collection of bags. In the course of the 20th century the bellboy, Guccio Gucci, had created an empire with his family business in Firenze (Florence). The beautiful pieces of travel bags, suitcases and the clothing collections designed by Gucci, from the twenties to the present day, can be admired in the Gucci museum in Firenze. 

Gucci is merely one of the inspirational success stories that are set in the bellissima cittΓ  di moda Firenze. Small scale family businesses in fine leather and wool have grown out to become fashion empires on which the sun doesn’t set. Sergio Rossi is another good example of this. The beautiful quality and design of its leather shoes has made Sergio Rossi an international success. Armani, Acquazzura, Patrizia Pepe, Pucci, and Salvatore Ferragamo are other examples of beautiful, internationally renowned brands that all started in the city of Firenze.

The Via de’ Tornabuoni is the most beautiful and chique street in the city center of Firenze, where you will find the boutiques of HermΓ¨s, Pucci, Tiffany’s, Bulgari, Dior and many more. La Piazza della Reppubblica is the historic square of the city and a perfect starting point to explore the boutiques in the small side streets Via Roma and Via Calziuoli, for example Fratelli Roselli, Liu Jo, Pollini, Luisa via Roma, La Rinascente. You may also find little family run shops where the shoes, bags and clothes are still being handmade. 

Even though, Firenze is a perfect place for a shopping trip, you shouldn’t miss the cultural and architectural beauty of the city. Il Duomo, il Battistero, Piazza Signorina, Piazzale Michelangelo and il Giardino di Boboli are beautiful, breathtaking locations to explore in the city. And you have to try all the delicious dolci, icecream and pizza that Firenze has to offer. The beautiful boutiques, architecture and food make Firenze one of my favorite Italian cities πŸ’™πŸŒΊ.  

Miamii πŸ’™

With its palm trees, white beaches, and turquoise blue sea, Miamii is a beautiful place to visit in the winter or summer. It is one of those beautiful cities on the beach. The beautiful architecture of the city and its cool, beachy vibes make Miamii a perfect hideaway. With my bikini and havaianas still on, I just came home from a beautiful vacation in Miamii πŸ’™πŸ‰. I love the nearness of the water, swimming in the sea, the turquoise beach houses, the chique apartments in North Miami Beach, The Falls and Aventura mall, and the South-American cuisine. When you are coming to Miiamii, as I like to call Miami, don’t forget to see these beautiful places in this cool city on the beach:

πŸ’™ In North Miami Beach you will find the most beautiful and chique apartments and spa-hotels on the beach, for example the lovely Jade Ocean (my dream apartment). In Surfside, Sunny isles and Ball harbour you will find many beautiful places to go to the beach or to do some shopping. Don’t forget to go to Aventura mall to shop your bikinis at Victoria’s secret, try a cappuccino with coconut milk at the Starbucks (mm πŸ’™), eat a Luau salad at the Cheesecake factory and find your summer dress at BCBG Maxazria, Michael Kors, Macy’s or Bloomingdale’s.

πŸ’™ Don’t forget to spend a day at South Beach to photograph all the beautiful beach houses and to lunch at the cool beach restaurants like Nikki Beach. You can spend a beautiful day on the beach swimming, surfing, chilling! 

πŸ’™ Coconut creek, Palm beach, and the Japanese-styled mall The Falls are nice places to visit in Miami. When you have some days to spend in Miami, drive down to the Florida Keys. After a beautiful five-hour road trip with the ocean on either side, you will reach the beautiful, Caribbean like islands of the Keys, where you can swim, surf, ride a beach bike and eat the best Keylime pies!

πŸ’™ Orlando is a cool place to visit and is only a four-hour drive from Miami. In Orlando you will find all the themeparks from Disney, for example Animal Kingdom, Seaworld, and Universal Studios. In Downtown Disney you will find Disney-inspired stores, live music, clubs and restaurants where you can have a fun night out. For example, Gloria Estefan’s Cuban style restaurant Bongos is a very nice place where the rhythm is going to get you πŸ’™ xx
