Happy Valentine’s day! – in two weeks. Is that really a thing here in Italy? What’s she talking about? Well, it’s Valentine’s month so allow me to ramble a bit on this topic – I’m curious. Thinking back to the two Valentines I’ve spent here, I don’t remember any frenzy as compared to back at home. Do Italians do Valentine’s day?
Let me officially say to my readers, Happy New Year! If you follow my social media pages, you would probably notice a lot has been going on with me. I recently graduated, and my mind has been running on so many things all at once. The reality of job hunting is so surreal, trying to juggle between interviews and carrying on necessary daily activities. The year has been so busy for me, I know right – already? It’s better late than never they say, so I will be giving you my usual suggestions of what to do in Milan, for this January.
Christmas in Milan is my most favourite time of the year! I think you can tell by how eager I am to share with you activities for the month, well in advance. I just love to walk the Duomo square to hear the Christmas songs blasting over the speakers – especially the song “All I Want for Christmas” by Mariah Carey. The season just makes me feel so warm-hearted and lifts my spirit. Whether you are a local or you are just spending Christmas in Milan, you will find my recommendations handy. Here you go:
The cold days are finally here. Many would be interested in how to keep warm and still have a good time, especially if you are a tourist. Best to recommend during this period will no doubt be indoor events and activities. Therefore, I would recommend visiting the Museums in Milan. FYI, some museums in Milan are free on the first Sunday of each month, I wrote about it earlier, read it here. Milan Games Week A 3-day event will hold from 5th to 7th October 2018 at the Fiera Milano Congressi S.p.A. in Milano, Italy. This event showcases games products […]
Goodbye summer! I am not sure what season I should be inviting you to because Autumn starts on September 23 and summer officially ended on the 31st of August in Milan. My recommendations are coming later than usual, but it’s better late than never. Where you at the Formula1 Milan Festival that held earlier this month in Milan? I missed it, I only saw Instagram videos that made me wish I didn’t.
The Ferragosto Month of August is finally here! While I am excited because of the holiday that comes along with it, I have been dealt with pretty badly by the heat. There is that saying that you can’t have it all right? Alot of places and events will be on shutdown in Milan. This is because a lot of business owners escape to other cities more cooler and with the sea. If you would remain in Milan, remember to shop ahead for food and other necessities so you don’t get stranded! As you may have imagined, I would be escaping […]
Two things that make July unique are the many concerts and fruits. I have been eating a lot of fruits lately and making homemade smoothies. Do like a Milanese and enjoy summer vegetables all through July. Forest berries, wild blueberries, apricots, and melons are in bloom. You can survive the summer heat with fresh juices from fruits and prosciutto – that do not require any cooking whatsoever. As you may already know, July is a very busy month in Milan as there would be a lot of concerts. For this month, I have handpicked some events happening in Milan that […]
As spring is finally paving the way for summer, there are more outdoor activities you can engage without the worry of catching a cold. I will forever be a strong advocate of the warmer months because I get to finally eat gelato and also for the fact that I get to wander the city in fewer clothes. My friends think I am crazy for sticking with this preference even after my first extremely hot summer experience in Milan last year. Well well, look at a beautiful representation of spring I found on my way to lunch🌼 ~ Follow my page […]
After days of deliberating what angle to take on my experience at the recently concluded Milan Fashion Week A/W edition, I decided to tell it exactly how I experienced it. The runway show opened with a dreamy song pouring over the speakers. I felt the goosebumps rise and I was immediately taken to lalaland. I fixated my eyes on the aisle, with my phone held high in the air – ready to capture. She walked down the aisle, looking like she just walked right out of the song pouring from the speakers. I instantly felt connected to the music and style. It […]
Milano Carnival starts after the Italian Carnival ends. It is typically called “Carnevale Ambrosiano”. Usually, in Milan there is a day parade and a night party in Piazza Duomo. The Carnival holds every year in March, with a whirlwind of beautiful costumes worn by both adults and children. The sweetest aroma of chiacchiere and tortelli fills the air. Carnival is the perfect opportunity for locals and visitors to taste traditional food, like sweet chiacchiere, available in the city’s pastry shops (called pasticcerie in Italian). There were a lot of activities at Duomo Square to celebrate the Carnival in Milan last weekend. Some of the […]
