L'Oreal Pro Night Out

Recently I refreshed my hair color, but not in the old blonde ways I usually do, instead with subtle gold and pink tones. L'Oreal was to thank for! It was truly a hair fashion night and also the promotion of the newest temporary color options L'Oreal Pro has developed. The colors are, I can already tell, gonna be used for a wide variety of festival styles (there are so pigmented and vibrant even when they dry out), and there is no need to worry, since they disappear after one washing!

I decided to stay true to myself and the hairdresser did the rest, we opted for a boxer vibe, two big braids, easily done within minutes, with finishing touches in gold and pink. Grant parrucchieri is one of the most trustworthy hair salons I have seen in Milan so far (they also style Veronica Ferraro, whom I'm a very huge fan of), the atmosphere was amazing, it wasn't just a hair appointment, it was a party! With good food, cocktails, and even better hairstyles what could actually go wrong? (Nothing of course...)

FRANKFURT CALLING




(in love with my shirt)





Frankfurt, what pops up in your mind as I mention this is most likely the European Central Bank, a picture of a finance center in general, and well, this weekend you could have caught me there as well!

After more than three years, it was time for me (and my German skills) to once again revisit the city and enjoy its flair and river side. I almost had forgotten how at home I actually feel in Germany. Fun fact is, German is my second mother tongue. After absorbing and listening to kid's TV shows for half a year on their channels, I randomly started speaking it at age 2 (and haven't stopped since).

Brunches are my favorite thing in the world, especially if there is also a buffet section (yes, why yes, I do live for the hotel all inclusive lifestyle). My search in Frankfurt resulted in a wonderful one at Cron am Hafen! The offer includes a coffee or tea and lots of sweet and salty things to choose from!

I love that the city is so active, everyone is either on their bicycles or going for a run. For me long walks next to the river side are essential, also the bridges are ideal for picture taking, the weather served me well and I finally put on some shorts, as well as my new shirt from Esprit that I recently purchased, and later when I get hungry... let me ask you, do you know What's beef?

I also just found out, a diner style venue with heavenly burgers, the menu offers a wide variety (and even sweet potato fries as side options). I chose a very extravagant one as the picture might tell. What really makes this restaurant special is actually the shakes they offer, I discovered the amazing pictures on Instagram and really craved one, but keep in mind it takes longer for them to be made. Another big bonus is that one can watch soccer while eating there!

Dear Frankfurt, thank you for keeping me busy this weekend, and I hope to see you soon! Now, I am back in Milan, slowly packing up my stuff and preparing for yet another move!

AGITA'S BOOK CLUB


While preparing for exams there is nothing more relaxing to me than being able to just hop on my bicycle and take myself out for the thing I crave most once a day: COFFEE... You know me, I am usually the tea advocate in this corner, but sometimes you just have your Gilmore Girls moments, where you have to have a latte macchiato or a cappuccino (we've all been there, and also watching the Gilmore Girls reboot wasn't maybe the smartest idea XD).

Being in Italy makes things thus far more easier, I mean helloooo, coffee is a religion here, and I decided to join in on the servings. In these two years of studying here the only thing I am not joining in is the drinking coffee while standing (if you are like me from the Balkans, hour long coffee time is kind of the norm you grow up with, am not really planning on changing that). 

What else do we need? Well, a good read to join in on the fun. My new goal for this year was to read one or two books a week, and I did manage to keep my promise. As I got older, as the school obligations accelerated the time for reading more kind of minimized itself, but it is a healthy way for the brain to reset itself and just have a little break. My coffee table includes mostly classics, some modern day literature and other bits and pieces.

The personal favorites of the moment are Demian by Hermann Hesse, The Picture of Dorian Gray, followed by some business and development books like Lean in by Sheryl Sandberg, what I find particularly interesting is actually books about the development and structures of languages and cognitive functions of the brain, since an early age I have been kind of obsessed with these topics, even today I like to research even more on them, that is, when my time allows to do so. I have to say Thinking Fast and Slow (one of my most recent reads) has definitely been a book I couldn't put down and it came in handy during all of my airport time.

I do think we spend so much time on the internet (mysteriously we always find time for that), that it can only be considered fair to drop that phone of yours and indulge in a bit of printed work. For me, one of the best sites is Bookdepository, from school books to fiction, fantasy, arts, cooking and self-development they provided me with all I needed with just one klick. Here in Italy it is hard to find books in English, and when you do, well, the Italian already put a grand price to it as well! The site was kind of my knight in shinning armor! I have also left you the links to my favorite books of the moment in case you happen to like those topics too! I have one more exam to go, so wish me luck and stay tuned for the newest adventures on the blog!

XO

A cruise with Chanel...










Ever since I was little my mum used to feed my curiosity with all of these fashion magazines. I started with the German Petra, went on with Vogue America, thrived the clothes of Harper's Bazaar and lots more. That is exactly how my Chanel obsession started... The signature cut, bold mix and timeless sense of independent, chic femininity (I kind of nailed the description there) always pushed me to work harder, get educated just to one day be able to buy my mum the bag she always wanted (and deserved).

I took a look at their newest Cruise collection and I fell in love with it (it sure was a true cruise down the runway), I included my favorite looks here from the show. I think this is a good start into a weekend, but make sure to let me know what your favorite looks are!

XOXO

AGITATRIX X SHEIN










You may not have seen it coming, but yes, a new collab is on the way! Today, I partnered up with Shein to bring my favorite looks from their site to your laptops, all you need to do is enjoy the ride (and the following picture collages!). I opted for everything casual, since, as a student, I don't have much time (I think you fellas out there understand me), but do I like looking put together? Well ofc YES! The days have gotten nicer, the time is right for lighter pieces to complete your looks! Happy shopping!

XOXO
Aleks

NOTTINGHAM AND MORE...




(I might not be the biggest fan of taking photos after all)


How does a bathtub sound to you? No, I'm not talking about a real-size one, but this one also has a small floating duck around...

In Milan it's always something new, whether we see it on Instagram or just hear about it at Uni, we're constantly seeing something intriguing. So this time we went into Nottingham forest to see for ourselves, what does this forest in a city have to offer?

The place is rather small, reservations are obviously something that isn't possible in a forest, but they make up for it (even my ten minute wait time) just with the sheer offerings of cocktails (cuz guys, I have never seen a bigger menu in my life). What a friend of mine saw online was creatively called Sephora, yep like the beauty metropolis, and once that bubble bath cocktail tub arrives you get the message behind it...we indeed pampered ourselves! (although, almost not finishing the mixture of champagne and vodka)

AGITA IN THE CITY








So often (once a day), one particular friend of mine and I sit down and have a tea. That and a cheesecake muffin accompany spontaneous rants, idea and pep talks unlike any others offered on TED. After that the only conclusion we can reach is...let's go somewhere.

A mimosa, a martini, or wine later, we have found another dream spot to hang out in.
The Yard, actually a hotel (what a surprise to find me in one of those) is hiding in it the Doping club, a secret membership option and for all us regular humans drinks can be arranged too. We went without any reservation and ended up having 4 couches just to ourselves up until the end of our stay (those actions sometimes do go the opposite way considering we are talking about Milan here).

My personal favorites are thus far definitely Madame D, and for after Zumbrowka (as you might have guessed it has vodka in it). For me even cocktails with vodka aren't that bad, but I do admit they aren't for everyone. I also do suggest to eat up before going anywhere, this place, although it offers food isn't really my go-to for the preparation, I would suggest you visit one of those old-school Italian places, usually normal prices and REGULAR SIZE PORTIONS!!!

For photos this place definitely has it's charm, it is filled up with different items, all representing fun activities or evoking memories of travel and those 50's business men with their Cuban cigars. I myself developed this strange fascinations for cigars and the first day after all exams are done I always go and buy myself one, sit on the terrace and just relax.
