What can you see in Bucharest, Romania in 24 hours

3:16 AM
Hi, my sweet readers. Ready for my travel stories? If yes, sit comfortable and start our journey to mysterious Romania.  Romania was always on my travel list, like many other countries in the world. I never knew what to expect when I travelled there, and to be frank, I ended up in love with Romanian nature and people.

Since we didn't have so much time in Romania, we tried to do our best, and got chance to see not only Bucharest, but also visited Brasov and Bran. I hope that we will return and learn more about Romanian culture in the future.

What main attractions you should visit while you are there:

Old Town. Definitely start your tour in Bucharest from the old town. It is definitely a delightful walk and you can find a ton of cute cafes. Enjoy the mix of architecture!









Palace of Parliament. Definitely book a visit to Palace of Parliament. Sadly, you can't take pictures with a professional camera inside Parliament unless you pay a fee. I believe it was about 10-15 Euro (don't really remember). You can still use your phone to take photos.



National History Museum. We actually didn't realize how big this museum would be. Plus, when we visited, they had an extra exhibition dedicated to World War I.





Stavropoleos Monastery. It is definitely a must-see church in Bucharest. The church was built in the 17th century and was demolished at the end of 19th century. Make sure to wear proper clothes out of respect. Early in the morning, you can enjoy the garden while most tourists are asleep.


Try some local bakeries. I tried some eclairs at French Revolution. They were not only instagramable, but also super delicious. Also, Mara Mura has a nice interior and delicious cakes.




Carturesti Carusel. It is probably the most popular place in Bucharest, not only for shoppers, but also for it is beautiful insta spot. It has a big selection of books, and on the top floor, you can enjoy a cup of coffee. The interior view from the cafe is incredible.


Pasajul Victoria. You can find not only colorful umbrellas at the restaurant, but also a hidden underground bar. Sadly, when we went there, it was closed.


Antiquities Market at Bazaar. If you are looking for some unique hand made or vintage items, visit the antiquities market that is located in old town. You can't miss it.



Origo Coffee Shop or at Social 1Another instagramable spot in Bucharest is a local famous coffee shop. Beside the unique design, you can enjoy the best coffee in town there. In case you are going to the Palace of Parliament, make sure to stop at Social 1 cafe. It is a really cool place and offers delicious food.






Get breakfast or dinner at Caru Cu Bere. Another amazing historical place (tourists love it). You definitely need to stop at Caru Cu Bere. If you are planning a dinner, make sure to reserve a table. Breakfast is the best option if in a rush, because no one is there, and you can enjoy the entire place. We noticed Romanians are not early-risers!




Dinner at Cyros. It is probably another favorite food spot of mine in Bucharest, not only for the budget-friendly meals, but also for the cute interior.


"Homeless Style" Trend

12:25 AM
Hi, guys! Have you seen Paris Fashion Week's new collections? What was your favorite?
This season, I actually skipped Paris Fashion Week. I'm not a big fan of traveling to Paris when it is too cold outside. Instead, my husband and I drove around Armenia.

We spent most of our trip in Yerevan, Armenia. I will tell you more later. I was a bit lazy to style my look. Plus, it was very cold early in the morning (I prefer shooting my outfit in the morning, because less people walk on the streets, making me feel less awkward). I was looking for something comfy, warm and trendy. In the evening, I looked for some inspiration on Pinterest and ended up checking Vetements latest collection. As usual, it was a bit extra and distinctive. So this post was inspired by Vetements FW'19 collection.

"Homeless Style" was quite a trend last year, and represented by many designers. I guess it is going to stay trendy longer. Anyway, I looked at my luggage to see what I could find. I decided to wear my heavy Topshop parka, floral rain boots (I got them in South Korea), pleated skirt from Forever 21, and a striped sweater. Normally, I wear classier pieces with the sense of colors. Since I was experimenting to see if I can pull out the "Homeless" trend, I still felt a bit shy to walk on the streets by wearing all these crazy pieces together.

What do you think of Vetements FW'19 collection? Would you wear the "Homeless" trend?
