coat H&M Studio A/W17 / dress H&M Studio A/W17

 

Although I spent this summer in Miami, where the air temperature reached 32°C every day, and my summer was filled with sunshine, as I returned to Latvia I could feel that all my loved ones had really missed the sun. As much as I don’t want autumn to come just yet, nature is bound to continue its cycle and the process is inevitable. The leaves are already starting to turn yellow and hints of approaching autumn can be felt in the morning air. However, there is one thing that I like about autumn – it’s the chance to be able to wear a coat, a leather jacket, or even to combine the two. I just love layering. Sometimes I feel like a cabbage under all those layers, but I still love doing it.

Unlike my friend who has dozens of coats in her wardrobe, I believe that this is only my third woollen coat. I’ve never had a huge necessity for them. This is probably the first season in which I have really felt the desire for one. Fashion does seem to set its own trends. The quality of this coat from the H&M Studio collection is outstanding, and it has my favourite warm grey colour and a great cut. It literally can save the day! Autumn feels a lot more sunny and certainly warmer with it.

dress H&M Conscious

 

Can you believe that this gorgeous dress is made from pet bottles that were washed out on the shoreline?

Isn’t it amazing!

I truly love H&M Conscious collections because they always have very deep meaning for me.

Speaking of this bionic material, it is not only meaningfull or picture perfect but also very durable. I can confess that I swam with this dress several times – first, for this photo shoot in the ocean, then in the pool, and after all, to wash it I went in shower wearing it. What surprised me the most: I hung it out to dry and next day when I checked it my dress looked amazing, like nobody ever had worn it. I was speechless!

IT’S A MAN’S WORLD

 

I’ve been to Miami countless times, but this was the one time that I will always remember the best. And it is not only because I celebrated my birthday over there. (How old did I turn? You don’t ask a girl about her age!).

This trip to Miami was different because we had a possibility to drive around town in a Lamborghini for a whole week.

As I’ve been interested in sports cars ever since my childhood, this was something truly special for me. Lamborghini is undoubtedly a gorgeous car, but what excites me the most about it is the sound that it makes; not the speed, but the sound ‒ and not the sound it makes when accelerating, but when braking ‒ it feels like somebody is firing a cannon from the exhaust.

A little bit of history ‒ Lamborghini began its rise to fame as a manufacturer of tractors. Not a bad modern-day tractor, right?! 🙂 I have to say that now, when I’m back to Europe, there are times when I miss this car a little (well, this is an understatement ‒ we really did not want leave the Huracan behind).

We tried out two Lamborghinis this time ‒ Gallardo, which we thought resembled a race car, as it was quite stiff and difficult to control, and Huracan, which was a completely different car with great driving comfort. Of course, I’ve got to mention that the most used button in a Lamborghini is the one that raises and lowers the car so that it would be possible to drive in somewhere, down from somewhere and over something, but this did not prevent us from enjoying this super-car in any way.

I can’t wait for the next time when we’ll be in Miami and will rent the Lamborghini Aventador super-car from the amazing MPH Group. Of course, they also have other options such as private jets and luxury yachts, but we’ll leave those for another time.

I have to say that the great team working at this company is able to easily get to one’s heart ‒ they are fantastic guys who love what they do so much that it can be seen without words and can be felt. And there are also two office guards ‒ Mr.Blu dog and Mickey Pomer ‒ who cheered us up with their friendliness. I think that an office of a company that has dogs in it has to have the best people working there.

Thank you for the marvellous work and the outstanding attitude! I wish you to become the best exotic car, jet and yacht rental in the USA from all my heart! I know that you can do it, as the product is not the most important thing anymore ‒ attitude and presentation is crucial! You’re the best!

PERFECT WILDERNESS

dress NAVRO

 

Just like every trip, this one has also come to an end. But, like they say, you can’t have too much of a good thing. On this wonderful trip, we enjoyed stays at four different hotels. As we have already criss-crossed Thailand, this time we decided to explore some of the best and trendiest hotels on the island of Phuket.

The Naka Hotel where this photo shoot took a place was an unforgettable architectural experience for me due to my unconditional love for minimalism. It’s best to visit it with your significant other or friends, not with your children. It has excellent villas with ascetic design, large living rooms and private pools, making them perfect for a romantic getaway.

If you want to travel with the whole family, you will definitely enjoy staying at the Indigo Pearl Resort that is now called The Slate. We couldn’t figure out why they changed that beautiful name and never got the chance to ask anyone. This was our second time staying at this hotel because of its convenient location only a 10 minute drive away from the airport. They have one of the best (possibly even THE best) restaurants for Thai cuisine called Black Ginger. While in Thailand, we always go for traditional Thai foods: Tom Yam soup, papaya salad, Pad Thai noodles, and beef salad. The Slate has three swimming pools, each with its own charm – two are for adults only (16 years of age and up) and one, for parents with children. Also, this hotel has one of the best breakfast offers.

Keemala Hotel impressed us with its unique houses that have borrowed the building principles from four different clans. We stayed at a two-storey tree pool house with its own swimming pool. We felt like we were in the middle of the jungle, even though that wasn’t the case.

The most memorable parts of Pullman Hotel were the beautiful swimming pool with an incredible view to the gulf, and the lounge above it, which was perfect for sipping cocktails while enjoying magnificent sunset views.

Another one of my favourite hotels is Sala Phuket, which we didn’t stay at this time. Located on the seaside, it has its own special quiet atmosphere and a beautiful black pool. This hotel is only a 15 minute drive from the airport.

At any rate, Thailand’s climate is the perfect escape from the European winter. Here you will find a variety of hotels and other types of accommodation. My suggestion is to stay away from city centres when visiting tropical locations, because they are always swarming with tourists. If you want to have a nice and peaceful vacation, you will be better off choosing beaches, jungles and nice, small islands.

 

Wish you to find your perfect place! 😉

Yours,

Liga
