Greetings from Bratislava...

Made it safe and sound to the place of my birth, Bratislava, Slovakia...so far I have managed to spend 99.9% of my time at the University Library, but happy to report that I seem to be finding everything I need to complete my dissertation and then some...hooray! As lonely as it is to be here by myself while little D is learning how to crawl (yup, breaks my heart) I have to say that my 15 minute ride into the old part of the city is nothing to complain about...here are some visuals of my last few days here...enjoy...

{Old Town Bratislava, an old typewriter in a cafe, old elevator, earl grey tea and reading/research material, my childhood stomping grounds, a view of Austria from the car}

That's it from me for now, have to get back to work...hope you are all well...lots of hugs to those who are very missed...you know who you are...

Leaving on a Jet Plane...

In four days I will be embarking on a journey of epic proportions, at least for me anyway...I am off to Slovakia, Czech Republic and Austria to conduct field work for my dissertation, but I am going without my little man...the first time since he was born that we will be apart...scary, crazy stuff! But I won't dwell on that here...instead I'm going to share some travel advice (wanted or not)...because I have been fortunate enough to travel quite a bit in the last few years, I have developed some pretty strict travel rules, especially regarding what to wear on the plane (because let's face it people, sitting in a less-than-desirable airplane seat for an extended amount of time one needs to do what one can to be comfortable!) However there is a huge difference between staying comfy and looking ratty, that's why my go-to travel outfit of choice always consists of tights (which, when done right, can withstand endless shifting and re-positioning without making one look like a mess)...On top of that I always like to pair my tights with a lose, comfy top...that being said imagine how excited I was when I discovered the perfect jersey top from JACOB-just the right fit colour and material! Thanks JACOB  you just seem to get me! Here is a glimpse at what I will be shifting in my airplane seat in very soon...enjoy...
{JACOB Jersey Top, F21 Tights, Alexander McQueen Scarf, Vintage Necklaces and Braceletes, Marc by Marc Jacobs Bag, Vintage Boots, Suitcase from S. Korea}
 One of my favourite things I brought back form Korea, this little carry-on has been around the world and back with me...
 Travel essentials: Sunglasses, a comfy top, iPhone (for music and videos), a journal to keep track of all my appointments, passport)
...and there you have it, a little travel advice from yours truly...for more comfy, practical and fabulous clothes, check out JACOB.ca...until next time, happy Monday everyone...

Introducing {Ms. Beltempo}...

Recently I reconnected with a good friend (it's always so lovely when that happens), who I always thought perfected the term 'effortless style'...no matter what said friend wears, she always manages to look effortlessly chic (Italian genes perhaps?) and although we haven't really seen each other or spoken for a few years, upon our reunion I was thrilled to find that not much has changed in that department...what can I say, girl has got style! Last week, Ms. Beltempo (said friend) came by for  a visit and we turned our tea-time chat into a mini photo-shoot for her blog (see here)...here are the results...isn't she fabulous? Enjoy...

Hope you all have a lovely weekend, may it be filled with sunshine...something we desperately need as of late...you know it's bad when you pop Vitamin D pills like they are candy...sigh...until next week...
