Moscow: Russia’s Marvellous Capital of Fashion and Love…

Good morning, my dear traveling fashionistas, how are you today? Today I will share with you my last story from Russia, a country that is very close to my heart. In previous posts, I wrote to you about the reasons why I am emotionally attached to Moscow and the reason for my visit to this amazing city… Before I start today, I would like to thank Red Wings airline company and the hotel chain Marriott for collaboration, without their help, this adventure it wouldn’t be possible. I hope we will work again in the future!

Moscow, which is home to more than 20 million people with its beauty and elegance, attracts thousands and thousands of new passengers every day and of course returnees who are always happy to visit again this lovely city when they have time.

Moscow is one of those “eternal” classic cities in which nothing changes, but is jealously kept so that it is always authentic and traditional, always consistent with itself and its citizens. Usually people say that the Russians are extremely reserved people and that they are not very keen to help tourists, but the truth is totally different.

For example my photographer and I decided to visit the periphery for the purchase of some gifts, imagine when we were driving over 20 metro stations and still used and the bus people around us were eager to help us and to chit chat. The younger generations wanted to answer my questions about the stations where we should get off, if by chance they do not know the right information they will ask some unknown person next to them. On the other hand, the elderly generation of people had a little more free time, so they even entered into a more detailed conversation, and they were glad when they heard that I was from Serbia.

Many of them had some association with Serbia; some of their first neighbors are from Serbia, some of them were even in Serbia, but even though we are significantly smaller than Russia, they heard about us and do not have any prejudice about our country, it is maybe because we may a bit and similar nations.

During this trip I had the opportunity to see in live the class differences that you can notice in public, in which the middle class almost extinct, so other people from the working class who are looking for the small coins for a metro ticket in front of the machine for the metro ticket just looking for the 2 or 3 missing Russian Rubles to buy a ticket for the ride and people who do not know what will with the money and they’re buying diamonds and other expensive luxury premium items.

So I decided to use one sunny morning in Moscow before all my duties which I had to do and to make some nice photos of this outfit. In the background you can see the beautiful building and also one of the oldest hotels which I mentioned to you in the previous post – Hotel National. There I made those beautiful photos with a mirror for which I got a lot of questions last few days.

I would like to answer some of the questions that you have sent to me, it is not possible first to take the photo with a mirror because it is located in one of the hotel rooms. You can visit the hotel, there is a beautiful Cafe, you do not have to be a guest of the hotel, you can just enjoy the beauty of the interior of this historic place and drink coffee and enjoy some cake, or just visit, everyone is welcome to see and enjoy in the beauty of this hotel.

I think that the picture above is legendary, you are sure to wonder why? I’m just going to say this is one of the few photos where you can see my whole figure and even my shadow. Excuse me on my hairstyle “A La Nest”, I did not manage to fix my hair during this photoshoot, it was little windy! 🙂

The St.Basil’s Cathedral will forever remain in my memory as a memorial of a two-year-old little Marko who believed that it was an ice cream factory. It was probably the last hope of a mother who was convinced that such a little lie would calm her child at least a few minutes so that a woman would rest a little her mind. Sometimes it’s very hard to be a parent! 😀

My dear ones once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from Red Wings for this incredible adventure and the friendly staff from Marriott chain hotels: St.Regis Nikolskaya and Hotel National that made our stay pleasant and we felt like we were at home.

How do you like this post about Moscow? Have you ever visited Russia? Did you have chance to enjoy in the magic of the Russian culture and maybe to buy some interesting Matryoshka doll? I would like to share with me your experience!

Hotel National Moscow: Revealing the Secrets in Room 101

My dear travellers, how are you today? I hope that you’re doing good! Finally it’s time for the weekend and a right time to share with you my new story from Moscow. I am always looking forward to sharing an interesting stories and I am quite sure that today’s story from Russia will be interesting to you. In previous posts you had the opportunity to get know better the rise and shine of the Russian capital and read my little fashion story. It’s time to tell you an intriguing story about a hotel that is at the same time one of the oldest hotels in Moscow.

Hotel National is located in the very heart of the city, right next to the famous Red Square and the political center itself – the Kremlin. Due to its location, the hotel was at the center of the battles during the October Revolution. The hotel officially opened the door to its guests in 1903 and at the very beginning it has gained the status of luxury and prestige hotel. Despite the high prices, the hotel was always reserved a few months in advance. Famous actors, politicians, traders, artists and diplomats were the dear guests of this hotel.

It all changed with the October Revolution and the National Hotel became a main station for the great revolutionaries. After the Bolshevik’s victory, all hotels in Moscow were nationalized. Hotel National also became the First Counsel house in 1918, members of the new government stayed in the rooms of this hotel.

Hotel National was the residence of the Central Executive Committee of the Russian Federation for a long period of time. In the 1930s was decided to return the former functions of the hotel. The hotel building was reconstructed, the ground floor was tiled with granite. After the reconstruction, the hotel looked a bit like a museum because of the furniture which was brought from the palace of Anichkov and the Kremlin Grand Palace, which also affected the price of services. Accommodation at that time was extremely expensive even for foreigners. The hotel worked with great losses, but in the 1960s the first stage of the reconstruction of the hotel was successfully completed and the hotel lost its fame which was gained at the very beginning.

In 1985, the main board of the hotel decided to restore the Hotel National completely. Part of the old furniture was sent to museums, the rest of the furniture was restored. The goals of this reconstruction of the hotel were to upgrade the hotel building, modernize the building, renovate the hotel’s interior. The health center, the attic with twenty additional rooms, a winter garden cafe are located on the north side of the Hotel National.

Ten years later, the hotel was completely renovated and it was ready to welcome its first guests. A new period of his history began. The hotel was awarded the category of a five star hotel. The present and the past have been successfully connected in the interiors of the National Hotel. In 2000, the hotel celebrated its 100th anniversary!

This hotel welcomed many celebrities such as the famous French diva Catherine Deneuve, renowned world fashion designer Pierre Cardin, current US President Donald Tramp, Kofi Annan, famous actor Alain Delon, Jack Nicholson and many others.

One thing is certain that Hotel National has survived everything in its existence, there are the scars may not be seen easily, but the turbulent history left a trail. Today it is a magnificent hotel that radiates elegance and its architecture shows the luxury of the Russian Empire.

Since the end of March is the beginning of the tourist season in Moscow, add to everything a fact that Fashion Week begins, it is very difficult to find accommodation in Moscow. Otherwise, I am very connected to Moscow because it is a city that has also marked my childhood. I remember how I made my first steps on Red Square and my mom could not stop me when I was trying to chase pigeons while we were waiting for Dad to finish with his business meetings.

Hotel National remembered me for a pastry shop which was near the hotel that always had beautiful, colorful cakes. They were nice moments when I got nice big fruit cakes and of course I get dirty, my mother was always crazy about my passion for cakes and my “lovely” behaviour to get dirty my new clothes. Okay, at least I was eating. After all, my Dad was my hero, my rescuer always comes to take me to the famous fairy-tale fountains, so much so that my mom can rest a little and go to do some shopping. Oh, memories!

Staying at this hotel was wonderful! The outside may have been cold, but the welcome was warm enough to warm my heart… It was strange how the gentleman on the entrance of the hotel knew my name and welcomed me to the hotel National.

Mr. Viktor is not just an ordinary doorman who has been working in this hotel for almost 20 years, he is a real living legend. Victor is the first smiling face that will welcome you to this famous hotel and will be happy to tell you the history of this hotel as he did in less than 20 minutes to tell the exciting story about this hotel.

After routine check-in process, I received information that we will get the most interesting room in the hotel. In the meantime I checked my email, admired the speed of the Wi-Fi and the lovely lady from the reception told me: “Sir, we have prepared for you room 101, we wish you a pleasant stay in our hotel!”. All right, I’m thinking of course the room must be beautiful when it’s in this hotel.

We get to the elevator and I still do not understand why we have a special escort to the room, the photographer makes me laugh that I have become a blogger huge star and I must be more careful now when I going out maybe paparazzi will wait for me in front of the hotel. It’s easy to make some jokes with me, I’m always a great inspiration to my team for making some “lovely” jokes…

It is because in our team we have a relationship built like a small family that is always there to help its members. Together we celebrate our successes of Mr.M blog, we are having fun together and of course we share all those less beautiful moments when we cry sometimes when things do not go exactly the way we planned.

We got directions and in a few minutes we found out that the original agreement was changed and that we got a presidential suite. I could not listen to the whole story because of lack dose of shock, I just remembered that we must be careful when it comes about the mirror… The person who brought us into the room went and left us in shock. At first I thought that they might have mixed up at the reception, but it is impossible that there are actually two reservations with the same surname.

We wanted to use this sunshine morning light to shoot phots for the blog, because who knows is it going to be still sunny whole day. Of course, I opened all the gifts and I got the famous Matryoshka doll.

The most interesting gift was a book in the leather band and a little letter. Since I have received few letters, you can assume that I have opened everything immediately because I am very curious person. It was strange that I got a small envelope, but I opened it. A note with a message: “If you want to find out why I’m special, open the page 101!”. The first thing you noticed on the indicated page is the image of the mirror. It was the story of room 101 and this unusual mirror.

There are two such mirrors in the world, one in Venice, and the second is in the room of this legendary hotel. There is not much information about the mirror, but it is considered it is old as hotel maybe even older than itself.

Our photo session interrupted the knocking of a butler that reminded us that the breakfast will be end in less than half an hour and it would be good to go to the breakfast room. As soon as I tell my photographer about food, then every work stops. Luckily, we had enough photos for the blog.

For the first time in my life, I made a photo in the dining room. You must be wondering why? I wanted to make a photo of young couple who seriously understood the term “Breakfast and Champagne”. She was absolutely amazing dressed, it seems that the dress is a handmade work with pearls and crystals. After a couple of minutes I felt more comfortable while I went to take a dessert, I met a young lady and I asked for a brand of dress. I’ve been struggling to remember the name of the designer until I get to ask the photographer for the price so that I forgot to take a chocolate cake.

Photographer told me it’s better to go back to take a chocolate cake because that designer has a really expensive dress so for me it will be better to get something to eat before I hear the price… I just back again to the dessert table and with the smile on my face come back to our table with the chocolate cake. We didn’t talk about the price after, I just wanted to enjoy in my cake.

Finally, after breakfast, we had a few hours to visit the city a little before the beginning of the fashion shows where we were supposed to attend that day. My fairy-tale fountains didn’t work, it was maybe still cold weather for the fountains. As you can see, the weather was wonderful, so we used to make another fashion outfit post. You will see more pictures of this outfit next week.

We spent this day wisely to visit the sights. First I wanted to visit the St. Basil’s Cathedral, who remained in my memory as a child of 3 or 4 years as one big ice cream factory. You can not possibly explain to the child that it is a religious object, but my mom has decided that the easiest way is to calm me down when I was a bad boy if it presents me the object in my eyes as an ice cream factory.

Moscow has changed a bit, of course, as a child I couldn’t understand that Moscow is one big metropolis that now has more than 20 million people. One city has almost 3 times more people than my entire country – Serbia. That is really impressive fact!

Moscow is one exceptional city and I’m always very happy to hear when someone is going to visit this magnificent city. In April 2019, it was my turn to feel the magic and beauty of this city, but I hope that one of you will soon visit the Russian capital and you will have your own opportunity to write down your story.

My dear travellers once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from Red Wings for this incredible adventure and the friendly staff from Hotel National that made our stay pleasant and we felt like we were at home.

Postcard from Russia: From Moscow with Love

Good morning, my dear travellers, how are you today? Last week we finished our adventure in Eastern Turkey and it’s time for little Marko to move on. The same day, just a few hours after returning from Istanbul, I returned to the airport again and headed to the capital of Russia – Moscow. The reason for my visit was Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Moscow, which every year gathers the greatest fashion lovers because Russia is known as the best and also the largest market in Eastern Europe.

This trip wouldn’t have been possible without the help of the airline company Red Wings, a Russian airline that has recently started to operate direct flights to Moscow from Belgrade (Serbia). Red Wings was established in 1999 in Moscow with the intention of connecting cities from Central Russia with interesting tourist destinations in Russia and abroad as well.

Red Wings currently has 12 airplanes in their fleet, they expect to extend their “flying family” with 4 new members this year. All planes have only an economic class, there is no business class. The company’s basic goals are passenger comfort and prices that are affordable to most passengers who want to discover some new destinations. When you’re purchasing tickets, you can choose one of three offered tariffs, one of them is LIGHT where you have the option of traveling only with hand luggage.

Route Belgrade – Moscow is something new, the company Red Wings is operating less than a year, which is a novelty in Serbian market. From now on, you can fly four times a week from Nikola Tesla Airport to Domodedovo airport and in about 3 hours you will arrive in the main capital of the modern Russian Empire.

Catering on the flight is exceptional, the choice of meals is great, portions are more than enough, believe me, I did not feel the need to have dinner after the flight. I can say all the best for the crew, for the first time in my blogger life, I was personally greeted by the pilots and the whole crew, which was an extraordinary experience for me. It was a great pleasure for me to work with a company like Red Wings and I hope that we will cooperate in the future and I will discover some other interesting cities in Russia. Who knows?! Everything is possible!

I just want to share with you one interesting fact, this summer Red Wings airline will celebrate 20th anniversary, so I’m sure they prepared some interesting gifts, so watch out carefully maybe you will catch some interesting offers and buy flight tickets for Moscow or some other interesting destination, check out their routes I’m sure you will find some interesting destination. It would be a nice gift for you or for your beloved ones. But you must promise me this will be our little secret!

This is my first photo from Moscow, I must admit that it was cold if you know the fact that the officially spring was already started, but in Moscow everything is different as you see… Different! It was was amazing night, those light decorations like in fairy tale, but my photographer wants to give me some lessons about my “traveling behaviour” with suitcases, but also trying hard to pull them like it’s nothing special hard… The photographer convinced me that I took along in Moscow with my “blogger diamonds” as the suitcase was so heavy that we could not find a better excuse for my crazy packing… Just imagine how I managed to pack all those things in only two hours… Do not mess with blogger who is going on Fashion Week… Never!

As you can see the decorations in Moscow are still on the streets and I can tell you it’s really great because you have the feeling that a million stars from the sky show you the right way. Tired of the previous adventure and another flight, somehow I reached the hotel…

Next morning, alarm on the telephone woke up me and officially the 30th of March was started, my first day in Moscow and the first day of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Moscow. Honestly, I didn’t sleep so much, maybe 2,3 hours, I spent almost all the night reading the instructions and schedule of all my duties… I did not even know where to go… As I finished with reading I just tried to calm down myself a little with the fact that I would probably not be the only one who lost in a metropolis like Moscow, otherwise known as a city with over 20 million people… Oh, Man three times bigger than my whole country Serbia!

Of course, it would not be me if I did not open all the packages I got, so I had to try all the things I got from various brands so I could go as all fashion blogger well dressed to the shows. Frankly, when I received the email from my PR agency that Loro Piana, one of the most famous Italian brands, showed an interest in cooperating with my blog, I could not simply believe that I would finally feel the softness of their famous cashmere and special Loro Piana wool. I was trying all those beautiful clothes in 4 am, so you can see the level of my great excitement!

I tried to copy some of the world’s famous bloggers, like “what a fashionable chaos is in my room, please do not disturb me”. The task failed, but we got a nice picture where I finally do not have a huge thighs when I’m sitting, but that’s why I make so many wrinkles my pants during this shooting. I thought that I need to iron them after breakfast, but I noticed that they were “corrected” after some time, so there was no need to iron them. Thanks God! Finally, I found the perfect trousers!

The photographer reminded me of my a long time unfulfilled wish, as I constantly talked about films and series where the main actors literally “glide” down the stairs and some bloggers have great photos like in the “Welcome to my beautiful home!”. This picture is very dear to me for a simple reason – finally people can see that I have eyes, since many people asked me where are my eyes when I’m smiling… Maybe on this photo my head is round and wide like the sun here, but it does not matter because my greatest critic (mom) gave me some powerful compliments for this picture and even ended up on the background of her phone… The sister was jealous for couple of days, I do not know if she has overcome this so far.

Moscow is a huge city and I know how difficult it is to find an ideal hotel in the city center, even if you consider the fact that you have come to the city on the list of cities that are the most expensive in the world then you understand that Moscow is all about nice and luxury things including all luxury premium fashion brands, amazing hotels and international restaurant with many different cuisines.

The first hotel in which I had the opportunity to stay on this trip was St. Regis Nikolskaya, a hotel located on the Lubyanka square few minutes from the famous Red Square. This 5-star hotel offers special personalised service as personal butler. All rooms in the hotel are decorated in the style of baroque with added stylish shades of brown tones that emphasize the elegance of this sumptuous paradise in the heart of Moscow.

This hotel is ideal for all travelers whose interests are related to culture, theater and history because Tverskoy part of the city is known as the main cultural core of the city where various cultural events are held. Also, this hotel is ideal for parents with children as it is also rated with the highest grade as the best family hotel for all those families who are looking for outstanding vacation in Moscow.


Now, the part that most of us adore, food! Breakfast is served daily in the Italian restaurant A Tavola located within the hotel. International cuisine, adapted to everyone… I have to admit that I was stick to this table those days with fresh fruit with croissants since I ate in Turkey as if it were not there tomorrow for me! In Moscow, I was on a diet, where I managed to lose 4 kilograms in 6 days with my diet “Now my dear Marko you will have some fun with fruit when you didn’t know to stop on time!”.

There’s a one interesting secret place – closed garden! On the picture from the hotel lobby which you saw few moments ago, you might have noticed a beautiful glass cupola. I’ve seen some pictures of the hotel’s beautiful yard, the first two days I tried to find it myself, but of course it was unsuccessful… My photographer came to the information, because I was embarrassed to ask because of my stubbornness because I was convinced that The yard must be somewhere… Of course, a visit to this yard must be announced because access is possible only with the personal butler. Interesting, we succeeded one morning to visit and see what is being hiding in that courtyard located somewhere in St. Regis Nikolskaya hotel…

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel, even I showed my admiration and I asked is there some possibility to be an inventory in this hotel, I would volunteer to sleep in the hotel hallway in a sleeping bag with a fruit breakfast… My suggestion was charming to the management of the St. Regis Nikolskaya Hotel, who knows I may one day succeed! This photo just screams: “Hello, I live here!”.

My staying at this hotel I will remember for the wonderful staff, even better candy on the pillow I ate to convince myself that black chocolate is not going to gain some weight… Marko, my dear child chocolate of course will help you to gain some weight, but if you walk 20 kilometers a day, you’re not going to get them so fast. As always, I’m just talking about weight! 😀

Since I could not find my photographer, who knows where he was lost in Moscow, I asked a maid if she was willing to help me, so the picture is above the masterpiece of a woman who does not normally take photos, but a two-minute course was enough for this lady to make this picture. I wanted to show you what the carpet looks like on my floor, so it’s good that I wanted to get one for my room. Everything is so classy and elegant!

I was simply delighted with this street lighting, I had the feeling because of the temperature that every evening the New Year’s Eve was there! It is not naive when you go out of the hall where the fashion shows and after you go out to minus 2 degrees outside or some degree that has crossed the zero a little… I really want to get some tips from Russians, their immunity is the best in the world. I want to have immunity system like that!

My dear travellers once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from Red Wings for this incredible adventure and the friendly staff from St. Regis Nikolskaya hotel that made our stay pleasant and we felt like we were at home.

Another Letter from London: Somewhere Between Rain and Wind…

My dear travellers, how are you today? I really hope that you’re doing great, because today I have a special post about London! I have not written posts on the blog for almost a month and I have to admit that this was hard time for me. Before I start with today’s post, I would like to take the opportunity to apologize for the unexpected break due to health problems and press trips where I was further “exhausted” so I failed to recover. For a month, I almost have a cold that I have not managed to heal completely because I was so active, instead of sleeping at my home and drinking some warm drinks like tea… Well, in the end, you never know why it’s good!

Many of you wrote to me on social networks and on the email when I will publish new posts and why I’m not active on the blog? All of you who follow my work know how much I love my blog, but sometimes some unexpected situations happen and I can not achieve everything at once. I promise that we will be hanging out more often this month, and believe me this pause on the blog may be good because you don’t know how amazing new interesting  posts I’ve prepared just for you guys!

Why did I get sick (again)?! Because in the past few weeks, I changed few countries, few totally different climate and time zones so I lost many hours of healthy “beauty” sleep and believe me it’s not good at all! Turkey, Russia, and England totally three different climates, time zones that it’s completely normal that if you’re getting sick on this trip, you just need to start praying to God that you can not return to even more sickness… What happened to me, of course, while I’m writing this post the best friends of mine today are the drops of nose, wipes and a tea. Great!

London was the last stop on this special European “cruise”, you are wondering why I did not start in chronological order like any normal blogger usually do… I think this time has won this little love for the English capital which I had the opportunity to visit in January of this year and I already knew that I’m going to visit again this year, but I did not know exactly when…

This time I had a little more time, full three days, so it’s much better than 48 hours! Believe me when you’re sick, 72 hours looks like an eternity to you. The worst thing that can happen to you when traveling is to GET SICK! The biggest damage is that you came to enjoy and discover something new, but your organism obviously has some other plans for you… Finally, my crazy personality won, so I cried in the room at night with the high temperature, and during the day I was playing a role of the real “Londoner”.

Now I have one “serious” question for you guys, listen up! When you are traveling, do you like to “put in” your schedule and Sunday as well or do you like to avoid this day? Usually people when they plan to travel, they tend to be from Wednesday to Sunday or Thursday to Sunday. Simply, just to have little time to get ready for a new working week. In my case, when I have possibility to arrange my trip, I like to spend that famous day in a certain destination.

Of course, for some it is not interesting at all, but a big metropolis like London, central core on Sunday is almost empty, I know it well because the true British people love to spend their free time at fairs, which are related to the lifestyle itself (food, sweets, teas and other deacons).

I spent this beautiful Sunday on the streets in the heart of London because I like to see nice things, no matter that in 90% of cases I have no financial opportunities to follow these trends, but I always like to see beautiful things and get some inspiration.  Sunday is my favorite day for me in London, because I have all the streets for myself, there is no crowd and I can pretty much look around the shop windows… Lucky me! 🙂

London is a city that is famous for its climate because of the rain and probably you will have more chances to see the Queen in the supermarket buying a bread, rather than a beautiful and sunny day. London as a city is very beautiful and does not bother me personally when it’s cold, rainy and even foggy because in London you can always do something interesting. The only thing I do not like is their obsession for renovating of the building, so every time I visit London always, but literally I always find some London symbol covered as it is being renovated, as you can see in the picture above… Thank God and the Germans do not like so much to renovate , otherwise I would be crazy already…

In the picture above, you can see the most visited place and best spot for the photos if you want to show people that you finally visited London! Who was not in London before, has the feeling that the Picardy Circus Square is so big and reminds a little of New York, but after that same person come to London and realize that this is a big misconception and that Piccadilly Circus such a small square, but that does not mean that it is not beautiful… You should not be blind and to believe to the pictures at IG, because you can disappoint yourself later.

Let me now return to the beginning of this adventure of my travels which started with a trip to Turkey where I had the opportunity to work with the world airline company Turkish Airlines where I met the culture of Eastern Turkey, once again I had an amazing ride with the train after the adventure in India, with a famous train in Turkey that received the label “Turkish Orient Express” – Dogu Express, I meet new colleagues, made some new friends from the Balkan and Eastern Europe region. After this adventure I went to Russia, and as you see, Turkish Airlines has followed me everywhere. I can not wait to share with you all my impressions from Turkey!

Well, I know well that I turned off the topic again, but what to do when I am too much creative and childish and always I want to share with you as much as I can, so I love to write! I like this part of London because I know that I’m getting closer to my most favorite building in London, located in Regent Street at No. 121… That’s the biggest Burberry shop, I like to say the biggest Burberry department store in the world!

The most famous British fashion brand Burberry has captured the hearts of their loyal fans around the world with their eternal elegance and classic trenches and coats, but also Burberry print also became synonym of England and the United Kingdom in general. A fashion story lasting more than 150 years continues to intrigue the world. That’s why, a few years ago, they opened a unique Regent 121 store where literally they have everything, but EVERYTHING! You need some runway model of trench? limited collection of scarves? This is the place for you! Each time I visit this store, my heart just wants to jump out because it would like to take everything home, but of course we come to the real border of reality and the dreams where you realize that if you succeed to buy just one thing, you will bring with you Part of England.

As far as I’m concerned, they could lock me up here to sleep, I would not be upset at all, I do not think I would sleep at all and I would suffer from chronic insomnia because of such nice things here… I think Burberry should consider my proposal to be the part of ” live “inventory of their fashion family and that would be my happy end for me!

During this visit to London, I thought at least a million times: “God, why my photographer doesn’t apply for a visa of UK!”. All this because of these almost half-empty streets that would be ideal for making some photos, but I didn’t have anyone to take some photos of me. On the other hand, how I was ill maybe at least I hid a little my “perfect” look at the moment because of huge fatigue and exhaustion.

The photo which you see above came from the need to try to take the photo of a gentleman who you can see on the other side of the street with red jacket because I liked the jacket very much and I was convinced that it was the same red jacket that I saw on the previous day at a sale in a department store, but it was not my size… Of course, when it was on 70% discount and when I wasn’t the lucky one to get it, but at least this picture turned out fantastic! As I wrote at the beginning of this post: “I believe that everything in life happens for a reason!”.

This building called Liberty House will always remain in my memory when I once was with a friend in London and when we found ourselves near this unusual department store I said that it would be good to check if they have the jacket from the brand that was on some big discount in another shop, she was so horrified and she just had strength to answer: “Marko, how can you look for a jacket in the museum, do you see that is a house in a famous tudor style ?! You’re crazy! “. A few minutes later she was convinced that it was an unusual department store so she did not want to talk to me for a couple of hours because she felt some sort of a shame. 😀

My dear travellers once again we have come to the end of our travel adventure. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! This post will be my first for this month and there are lot posts to come soon. See you next week, with some new interesting stories!

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the London City Tourism Board, my friends from Sony who have challenged me again to use new little monster Xperia XZ3, new member of Sony Xperia family. All the pictures that you saw today in this post were created with the help of my new little friend Sony Xperia XZ3 and I began to think that I no longer need to carry the camera on the trip with me. This was a unique opportunity to introduce you a little better with a lifestyle of the city like London and I hope I’m going to visit soon one of my favorite cities in Europe.

How do you like this post about London? Have you ever visited England or UK? Did you have chance to enjoy in the magic of the London? I would like to share with me your experience! If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media, which you can find on the CONTACT page.

I also thank Burberry Limited, in following posts you will have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of their interesting creations.

Letters from Finland: Last Call for Helsinki

My dear travellers and fashionistas, today I have prepared for you a special treat, because I realized that I missed to share with you one fashion-travel story from Finland. This post will also be the real ending of my incredible adventure that I experienced in the capital of Finland – Helsinki. For those who first read my blog and want to learn more about Helsinki, read the previous posts on this link, I’m sure you will love this lovely city in Northern Europe and will dissolve your heart.

Some people say that memories are not so important and after some time they will disappear from our memory… I disagree with this because I am sure that all the beautiful things that happened to us, all journeys and important memories remain in our subconscious and only is the question of the moment when our mind will again decide to remind us of those same nice moments! 🙂 Since my adventure in Finland, it’s been a couple of months ago, but I still remember the crazy wind that was blowing during our last day in Helsinki.

I would like to back again there, before I start with today’s post I would like to say huge thank you to wonderful Elisabeth from My Helsinki and that I was the part of amazing #MyHelsinkiResidence project. Also, I would like to say thank you to all partners of this project and I hope we will work again soon!

I remember well that we took photos of this same outfit for two days because of the wind and I managed to make some nice pictures for this post, but I completely forgot about these pictures because after Finland I quickly got sick, and the trip to Cyprus followed up after and I completely has forgotten about these pictures. A couple of days ago, a boy from Bosnia and Herzegovina sent me an e-mail that he saw a nice black jacket in the first post from Helsinki, but he did not find a fashion post from Finland with that same jacket and he sent my picture in that black jacket as attachment.

After reading the email, I was not lazy, so I opened my blog and started looking for a post with this black jacket, so I realized that I actually forgot to post these pictures… Helsinki, a cold city with a warm heart was the perfect city for taking pictures of this fashion combination.

I am from those people who think that black colour looks much better on other persons than me and I have always tried to avoid black and grey colours. My mom who always had a great influence on my fashion taste and style always said one and the same sentence: “Marko, my dear child black is not the right colour for you… You are guy with the darker shade of hair, the black colour looks much better on blond person. Simply black on black, it doesn’t go so easily! “. That’s why I’ve always tried to not wear black clothes, maybe I used to have some black trousers, but I was trying to make clothes which going closer to my face to be brighter and cheerful colors, just to look more refreshing.

My best friends from Burberry wanted to send us blogger early gifts for Christmas so I got this jacket at my home address, which I really did not hope for because they wanted to surprise us with a gift for the holidays, and we had the opportunity to complete the outfit after with some other stuff. Since I picked out these gray pants that you see on the pictures and one sweeter orange color, I realized that I made a big contrast, so I decided to take the photos of a sweater another time, so I did not carry it on a trip to Finland.

Honestly, I was planning to shoot this outfit with one turtleneck sweater, which I bought in Zara, so I took it on the trip with me. Like everything else in my life, everything is so complicated, so I managed to burn my favourite roll neck sweater with the help of iron machine that I did not obviously knew to use it properly, because it was totally different with a bunch of options, I hoped that I managed to fit everything nicely, but the wool that sticked to the plate of the iron, so the sweater was burned there…

I was wrong, it was my favorite a piece in the wardrobe, since my skin is very sensitive to the wool, it’s easy to notice an allergic reaction on my skin somehow I succeeded with the softener after a couple of washes to make it good for my skin. Now that same sweater was destroyed, after 3 years of careful using and storage…

After half an hour of criticising myself and few chocolate bites, the photographer told me that he noticed in the past days that there was some special sale note in the window of the Zara, so we went out of the apartment without breakfast and went to Zara. There I found this sweater that fit perfectly and for 12 euros I got a new favourite fashion piece from Zara. Someone will say that the sweater may be a bit “old” for me, but I liked it at first sight and I think it can be combined easily because of these pastel colours stripes.

The last day in Helsinki ended, little Marko almost late for his flight, because the last train with which I could get on time went, luckily the tourist board had an understanding for me, so they helped me with the transport and everything was better than what I could imagine would ever be in my life. Sometimes people are needed for true happiness much less than some people think. I wanted to make nice photos, but I did not think about the time as always…

My dear ones, once again we have come to the end of this special fashion outfit post from Helsinki. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and soon I will start collaboration with one worldwide airline and this year will be full of adventures and excitements, so be prepared!

Last day in Helsinki was so sad because we left our Aallonkoti apartment where we had feeling like we are at our home. Thank you for having us for a wonderful week, I hope we will see again!

From Picard with Love…

Hi everyone, how are you today? It’s time to do some final preparations for the weekend. Friday is a magical day, there is no person on the world, who does not like this day. Maybe some people are more looking forward expecting this day than holidays, I have to admit that I understand them… Everyone needs some time to rest, but the daily duties and everyday life do not give us much free time and maybe it’s just Friday, a symbol of freedom that we expect every week with with a smile on our face.

Since I had to get out of my “cave” (house) to pay some bills and to attend on some business meetings for potential collaborations with my blog in the future, I decided it’s maybe a perfect time to make the new photos for a new post. I called the photographer and we “occupied” the most Instagramous spotlight in Belgrade (the most famous place where people are most photographed for Instagram when they are in Belgrade) – the crossroads of Uzun Mirkova and Kralja Petra streets. This crossroads has been on the photos so many times and there are no influencers who did not make some fashionable post here. I decided to see what is so special at that crossroads, will this place help me make some new beautiful and fashionable photos for the blog.

Okay, I have to admit the location itself is very photogenic, but avoid shootings during weekdays in the middle of a city crowd. Well, it was not bad, but on the other hand, I wanted something a little different. The photographer gave me the idea that since we do not have much time for making photos we should move to a little less noisy street in the city center to make pictures for this post. I listened that advice and we started to take pictures of the Belgrade streets that make Belgrade’s heart so unique and so original.

New Year’s decorations are still on the streets, maybe the authorities are afraid that the people will “enter” in the massive epidemic of “post-holiday” depression, and they are trying to keep the decorations and lights on the streets of Belgrade as long as possible (I heard that the situation is similar in other cities in Serbia and some other countries in Balkan region) .

I decided to ignore winter temperatures, so I replaced the winter jacket with a trench and I brought a little color into my monotone beige-gray combination with a red bag. When I was at Picard, I noticed a nice red leather skins during the tour, but I did not see what a product looks like in that colour. On my question whether they made a bag or some of the leather goods in this unusual red color, they showed me the model of the backpack you saw in one of the previous posts – LINK and this business bag, which is usually intended to carry a laptop.

Since I already picked a same model of backpack in brown colour, I was a bit strange to take the same model of backpack in red, but on the other hand what would I gonna do with a business bag ?! My dilemma was solved by the girl who made me company during the tour and gave me a couple of main key reasons why I should have one business bag in my wardrobe.

For a long time, this bag was waiting for its “special occasion” to be carried, but finally it saw the light of the day when little Marko realized that it was not serious to carry folders and important papers that were uncomfortable in the backpack and that this business bag was ideal for little Marko to step into the business world. Meetings passed in the best possible order, even this red beauty got a lot of compliments, precisely because of its unusual color.

So another Friday has passed, the bag had its first official appearance on the streets of Belgrade, and Marko, after completing his duties and shooting for this post, honored himself with several hundred grams of dry biscuits in his favourite bakery and shared with his photographer. Of course, the beautiful sunny Friday is used in the best possible way – in a good mood, with smile on the face and walking the streets that make this city so special.

Are you ready for upcoming weekend, my dear Belgrade? Surely, as always, I’m sure that you’re interested to know what I’ve put on this time, so I’ll leave you a little hint, but do not tell anyone, give me your word that you will not reveal my little fashion secret! Ok, ok I believe in your word!

Feel the Holidays with a new Festive look!

Hi everyone, how are you today? I really hope that you’re doing great, but it’s time to work a little so I decided to share with you some news and write a new post. I am from those kind of people who like to plan and do many things in advance and before the New Year just make one wish – just everything that has been agreed, will be realized! As much as people try to spread negative energy, we should not be allowed to assure us that effort and work are not worth the effort. Of course, each one of us has some own wishes, plans, and it is irrelevant whether they are small or big, everyone has the right to do something that is desirable for their dreams.

Today, I just remembered one conversation that I had with my friend almost 4 years ago when she was convinced me that there was nothing special out of the blog, that it was a pure waste of time and nerves, so she began to list the names of people who were then popular in this blogging world. I just asked the question: “What if I turn out the game? Can I find a place for myself? “She had no answer to that question.

That’s how my story about Mr.M began as a kind of new way, as proof that everything is possible if you truly and really love what you do. Writing a blog is not easy, it’s a very difficult mental work, where a certain amount of creativity is required. When I begin to write a post, every time I have a feeling of a certain kind of fear, which has not passed with time, but it’s not something that you can’t beat with the time.

Many of you asked me few times where I learned to write this way, whether I was in some kind of writing course or did I attend a “blogger” school? The answer is NO! I did not go to courses or any school because I really do not believe in that type of bloggers “education”. Schools make molds, simply make people think similarly. I do not write serious things like celebrated writers, nor pretend to do it or to become a person that will be significant in literary circles, but I want to show my attitude and opinion in a true and unique way.

Also I received a lot of questions like: “You write well, unlike a particular person or group of bloggers, it’s a shame that you do not have a larger number of readers on your blog, how are you dealing with it, is it worth to do it?” I once answered one such email with one long letter, I guess I was angry, and on the other hand, disappointed that it is possible that someone has the right to compare someone in such a way.

I greatly appreciate and respect all my colleagues, whether are they the bloggers or people who are influencers (people who are influential on social networks and platforms) and there is no need to compete or compare. Everyone has the right to run own blog and take care of his public “image” in social media world. From the very beginning, I tried to keep my blog in such a way that an average person could understand me, someone similar to me. It does not have to be everything turn around of salary and money of course, we need to survive and earn something, but the charm of our work lies in feeling the reaction of people who like and read our work.

I always try to use the terminology that everyone knows or at least most people and I’m glad that people who read these posts on my blog have recognized and found something good in the whole Mr.M story. I started the blog with the idea to share some of my stories with the hope of having fun and making someone a good day after work. After a while, I received a lot of messages with compliments that my stories were emotional and educational. If that’s the case, then that’s great, at least something smart and useful from me! ?

Now the only question that worries me most: When will this snow go away? The more it turns out, people can not function normally, just a few hours later, Belgrade becomes white Siberia and traffic is in a collapse, and poor people do not know what to do. I’d like to tell you something interesting about this outfit.

You had the opportunity to see this lovely jacket – parka last year on the blog, some people were worried about throwing stuff, so you can see that bloggers do not live with an exclusive way of life, so that after shooting we throw things and we dress every day new thins… That’s one little sweet lie, we repeat certain fashion pieces a lot of times, and yes we dress all those promotional clothes in daily life, it’s not just for the Instagram. 😀

I got a sweater from my friends from the Finnish fashion house Turo, you also saw it before this winter on the blog, the link of the post. The red color always fix my mood, and this sweater is so warm and soft that I really doubt that I will be able to leave it in the closet this season, since this snow can surprise us in May as well… Weather is constantly changing!

Jeans are a special story, honest to be, I can not even tell myself how many jeans I buy each year and also how much of them I get from brands and the worst part most of them are almost the same, classic cut. That is why some people think that I have the same same jeans every time. Not my dear ones, I have almost 20 pairs of similar jeans, which I honestly do not even see the difference, so I perfectly understand you…

The backpack is a special story itself and I am very proud of this collaboration with the famous German brand Picard. I do not know how familiar you are with this brand, you might have heard of it, but it is extremely popular in Germany and it’s affordable, but the quality is exceptional.

The Germans are a very wise and economical people, and when they buy something like clothes or fashion accessories, it is generally important for them to invest their money in some thing which is quality, even when the price is affordable for them, there is anybody happier than themselves. Picard is a German brand that has managed to match the wishes and needs of its customers. Simple design, eternal classic and product quality are the basic characteristics of this famous German brand. Their fashion story began back in 1928, and since then, they have made daily lives much easier for all their customers.

Because all of that, I’m glad that I got the chance to work with a brand such as Picard and that I will have the opportunity to show you some of their iconic models of bags that you can wear on all occasions and of course to be noticed. Also, Picard has a great collections of women’s bags and they always have some interesting offers and sales, so take the opportunity to visit their online shop from time to time.

I am a big fan of pastel colors, brown color is my favorite color and I have inherited the love for this color from my mother who usually adores and almost all of her fashion pieces are in this color, I will just tell you how much this love to brown color is huge when it is her favourite coffee cup is in the brown colour as well… ?

Have you made some of your New Year’s decisions? If you are not still sure, do not worry it’s not late, people say that January is anyway the month for resting the year begins since February, so you have a few more days to think about your goals for this year and slowly start with work.

My dear fashionistas, once again we have come to the end of this fashion – lifestyle tips post. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will star some new adventure!

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the Picard which helped me to explore urban world of men’s street fashion & style.

Is Beauty the most Important Thing in Life?

Hello, my dear ones, welcome to my first post in 2019. This is my first post this year and I have to admit that I am a little nervous and excited because I have everything on my mind right now and I hope to be able to “speak out” my thoughts and write all of them correctly. First I would take the opportunity to express my sincere apologies to you that I am writing a post today, but I did not arrive because of certain duties earlier and I was not inspired because of the cold (yes, I was sick again!).

I want to congratulate you New Year and Christmas, I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. Christmas reminds us every year about the most important values of life: love and respect. I hope that we will all find the peace for which we are constantly searching! I hope you have spent these holidays with your family and friends, some may even have been fortunate to travel somewhere. The most important thing is that we all finally end up with a smile on the face and a filled heart with joy to enjoy in these holidays and we are ready to move on.

I did not plan at all to write a blog post today, but because of an unusual question that I received tonight on Facebook, I decided to write a post with this “interesting” topic. That question was not exactly the reason that led me to write this post, better to say that it was more a “trigger”. During these holidays, I spent a lot of time with my dear people, because of the illness of the photographer, my team was not able to realize the collaboration with one Tourism Board for the New Year’s holidays, because of all of this I decided not to go alone, and the rest of my team agreed with my decision that it is the best that we all spend holidays together in Serbia.

My friends always give me inspiration for my posts on the blog, all the texts so far were in some way directly or indirectly about some of our everyday topics, so we have touched on the theme of physical appearance for these holidays, or has everything become so superficial today? We all know how important it is to leave a good first impression, maybe we will not impress anyone at a first sight, but there is always some chance that someone will remember us for some of our unique personality…

This holiday season my best friend was my hero, why? Her boyfriend left her after 3 years of relationships with words: “Sorry, you’re just not my type!” What connected or better to say “tied” them in those three years? Obviously, it’s just an instinct to spend with a person for three years and to be left in such a way while she was stepping into the new year with thinking that after New Year’s Eve she would choose a wedding dress, she got her “dump” card on December 27th… It’s all life, but have we really become so superficial?

Did love decide to escape from the city or all those wonderful romantic movies on Hallmark channel is just a perfect lie? Of course, American love comedies and soap operas are just there to help us feel a better for hour or two afterward we return to our lives. At least, each of us is aware that perfection exists, but if you decide to spend some time, you should make a little effort to find something interesting in a person who thinks about you on the other side … You all know very well the fact about  that modern saying: “Karma is b..”, everything is at the end coming back.

That was a short story about some of disasters in love relationships, but let’s tell you something about a bit different relationships – Business. If you want to succeed in the business world, whatever you want to do in your life, you need to possess 3 the most important things: self-confidence, persistence and commitment. If you do not own it, you are ruined! It sounds a bit rough, but that is the ugly truth! This is the truth that your life teaches you, but if you change your habits on the time and change yourself, the results will be beyond any average.

As much as anyone thinks that bloggers do nothing and that everything including money and products fall from the sky especially at the moments when we, blogger want, that everything is waiting for us on the plate, and it is only for us to find the ideal white wall to take pictures of our fashion outfits… FALSE! Blogger’s work is very complex, some people who met me have changed their opinion about our profession because they saw with which problems we are facing daily. Each of us can be a blogger, you can run your blog and write about a topic or many different topics that really interact with you.

Bloggers need to know more things, besides having some talent for writing, they need to know how to edit photos, they must always improve themselves, have to learn new marketing tools, persistent to be good absolutely in everything. I started my blog by taking pictures with the help of my friends with a mobile phone, I told you about it in some post, to be honest right now I can not exactly remember in which, it does not matter now. It’s important that you know where you are going and that you do not lose your self for a pair nice shoes or some coat, this is where self-confidence, perseverance and dedication arouses to help you to get know yourself much better.

I have always been fortunate to be surrounded by people who are trying to help me in my vision to make Mr.M a something more than just a blog; it is simply an oasis of peace where everyone can relax and those few minutes that leave for themselves just to clear their minds with a cup of Coffee, if you encounter my blog, enjoy some nice and interesting topics like fashion and travel.

I mentioned FASHION and TRAVEL. These are two completely different things, but they can connect nicely. Fashion has always been a “cruel” industry. There always were high standards that were difficult to fulfill… Beauty has always been the most important thing and everything else is being suppressed. The average people have never been in fashion, but the times have changed NOW. We all see the top models look perfect on the runways and during the shootings of some fashion editorials. When you see them in live, finally you realize that they are not nothing special, that it is all makeup and a good Photoshop…

Yesterday I got an interesting question on Facebook and I shared with my friends in my own way:

Guys, I’ve just got an interesting question … 

Person: “How can you be a blogger when you’re not beautiful?”

After 30 minutes I ate all the sweets in the house, I called 15 friends to cry and to find some good answer, I also called a plastic surgeon with the desire to change my personal appearance, but I realized that I need at least 30,000 dollars that I will not earn for my 10 lives… So, my diplomatic and calm answer was:

“Beauty is in the eye of an observer, good night and pleasant dreams!”

Many people thought this message was ridiculous because I wanted to entertain people on the way I usually do, but on the other hand, I really do not care about it, because I just wanted to entertain people and to share something interesting with them. Also, there are blogger who are sensitive to such messages, so they lose self-confidence and do not know how to continue with their work. I will only tell you one thing, as an average man with average intelligence, keep in mind that you need to look at yourself and go only through life, because beauty is transient. Beauty is a feature that has value only to cold and superficial people.

It’s great when a woman or a man is good as a person and beauty is just as an additional plus to all those other qualities. According to some of my modest opinions, people who are looking at the exterior only are cold and empty and try to make up some totally unnecessary standards.

Will beauty save the world and humanity? Believe me, we are all human, but rarely is a person. Strive to be a good person and provide everyone a chance and realize that there is nothing to insult or humiliate a person. Everybody is beautiful in his own way, each of us has something special and we need to appreciate what we really have.

At the end, I would like to tell you a short story about the outfit that you had the opportunity to see today on the photos. You saw this lovely shearling leather jacket last winter on the blog, I just decided to get it out of my closet and walk this season again. This amazing turtleneck sweater I’ve got from my friends from the fashion house Turo from Finland.

I received my boots last year from my friends from Burberry, just not to think that bloggers only bring things for a couple of times, then we throw it in the garbage like it hasn’t ever existed… I do not throw anything at all, I have things I’m keeping and I am happy to carry them even today, although all those years, this boots are something special for me, they are evidence that I did something good in my blogging life to get them.

My dear fashionistas, once again we have come to the end of this fashion – lifestyle tips post. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will star some new adventure!

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the Turo fashion house which helped me to explore urban world of men’s fashion.

P.S. I have to share some confidential information with you! Special sales have started on official website of Turo fashion house, so now you can use your chance to buy this amazing turtleneck sweater on the link bellow or you can find some other interesting items for you.

Fashionable and Stylish Fall in Tallinn

My dear fashionistas, how are you today? I hope you have used this weekend in the best possible way, even though weather conditions have not been favorable to us these days. Today I present to you a special fashion story from the capital of Estonia. I must admit that I have been thinking a lot today about the title of this post because Tallinn is itself an unusual city. A modern city that has some magical vibe of medieval times, where tradition and culture were at an enviable level. Other values were more valued, art was different, exalted, maybe even had its own cult, which today was visibly faded.

Tallinn is a city with a special energy. One day in early morning, we’re even finished on a cruise. From high dose of excitement I forgot about the umbrella, without telling you how many times I checked the weather forecast last night in Tallinn. Fortunately, when you have a photographer who has travelled almost the whole world, everything has to be in the backpack… In my backpack, there were only basic “survival kit” – a biscuit, a cap, a scarf and a couple of maps from Helsinki (for God sake I really do not understand why I carried with me maps of Helsinki in Tallinn, I will just say God, please help me!) That’s only I can take at 3 am in the morning, I’ll just tell you that I used only the biscuits from all these great stuff which I had in my “survival kit”! ?

We arrived early in the morning in Tallinn, I think it was about 7 am in the morning, I only know that there was no living soul on the street at that time. Well, on the one hand, this is great when you want to have a good photo shooting of fashion outfit for the post. On the other hand, I could not immediately feel the soul of the city, because as we all know the soul of every city, are inhabitants.

All right, it quickly went through that emptiness, as long as I have ended with my biscuit, I heard the first sound of female heels on the streets of Tallinn. I have always admired the women for their ability to maintain balance on heels and also to run on those high heels. What to say, well congratulations you are my heroes! Sometimes, barely I do not know to walk properly with normal flat sneakers on the ground!

Well, after watching a small street fashion show, three best friends go together to some serious business work, one could say that it was a more serious company, perhaps a law office, because all three were perfectly fiddled in toned suits with briefcases and modern bags… Maybe, they are some business women from a serious corporate business world, that we bloggers will never be able to understand.

It was all great, but my photographer was so disturbed by my bright orange turtleneck sweater which by his modest opinion did not fit in with this brown combination… It wasn’t that bad, the first thing – material was a bit thicker than my other beige turtleneck sweater which I planned to I carry with this outfit and the other thing is that I noticed that the facades in Tallinn are mostly bright beige, white colors and I did not want to be part of them! That’s why I combined together nicely and usefully, I did not become part of the Tallinn architecture, but I did not freeze, thanks god. You know, I am from those people who can easily get sick, and because of that I have 9,999 medications in my bag on all my journeys, because you never know what can make me “sick” in one of my adventures.

Luckily, the Main Office of the Tourist Board of Tallinn has opened, so we got some guidelines, how to use a few hours in Tallinn in the best possible way. In the picture above you can see little Marko, the man who “studied” hard the guide through Tallinn.

This year, the Autumn have some completely different colors. In Finland and Estonia, everything is all about nature, so I had the opportunity to enjoy the magic of golden autumn because of the rich natural world in Nordic European countries. As I wrote in the previous post, fashion experts said that this season gold colour is in trend, so I can only notice that nature in Helsinki and in Tallinn as well, follows the latest fashion trends! ?

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this special fashion post from Tallinn. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will continue our adventure.

At the end of the post, I would like to thank the friendly staff from Aallonkotti Hotel Apartmentsthat made our stay pleasant and we felt like we were at home. The concept of hotel is to stay in apartments of different sizes. The size of apartments depends on your needs. The apartment in which we had the opportunity to stay was specially decorated by the well-known Finnish brand Marimekko, which besides its basic activity – making clothes has its own special line for home decoration.

How do you like this outfit? Have you ever visited Tallinn? Did you have chance to enjoy in the magic of the Tallinn? I would like to share with me your experience! If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media, which you can find on the CONTACT page.

As I promised we’ll see again in a couple of days, so if something new and interesting happens to me, I promise, I will write to you!

Best,

Mr.M

Fall on the Crown of Dresden

Hi everyone, how are you today? I know I promised you that the next post will be from Italy, but I found an interesting post from the previous season that I forgot to share with you last winter. Before I start with todays post I would like to remind you that in March this year I had the opportunity to visit a city in Germany – Dresden. Interesting collaboration with Dresden Tourist Board – Visit Dresden.

The city of kings – post which you loved, I noticed by your reactions. I forgot to publish an outfit post, since that was the overlap of the season, the winter took a little longer, I completely forgot to share with you a special outfit post from this magical German town.

Dresden is one of those cities in Germany which are different from classical German architecture, those straight lines of. As you walk into the city, you have the impression that you are walking in some city in Austria or France, you would never say that you are in a city in Germany. An exceptional city you can not miss to visit. If you want to find out why I love Dresden you can read it in a post which I wrote in March this year. You can read on this LINK, enjoy!

In the picture above, you can see the symbol Dresden – the Great Crown Gate. It is also the largest crown in the world and due to this crown, many tourists come from Europe and the world to get to visit this magnificent and exceptional beauty. Of course, I have not missed my chance to enjoy in her immediate beauty…

If you are wondering why this image different from other photos because of the shades of colours, I can only tell you that natural light in winter is very deceptive and suddenly when the Sun is up, it automatically changes everything. That very day, the sun has played some games with us, but in the end, as you can see yourself, everything turned out fantastic.

The crown has left an unbelievable impression on me and I hope that at least I managed to show you this magnificence with a little help picture that you can see above. They are not called Dresden by the city of kings just like that, this crown is the proof of this well-known epithet.

This picture is my favorite! I am looking at a pastry shop in this moment, it was so cold, but I knew that in a couple of minutes I will enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with some sweets. At least that’s what my photographer promised to me… 

My photographer always kept promises and this smile shows my happiness that I finally find myself in warm cosy space, I could only stay at this restaurant with just one glass of water. I would not really be scared at all! After a bit of relaxation time, our Dresden adventure continues!

In the winter days are very short, you feel truly lonely in the streets, there is no people on the streets at all! Even outside when is winter the cold is there and you do not know whether to laugh or to cry… I decided to smile at least from the pain because it was so cold and I remembered that I was almost 6 am when I got out from hotel and we were not even make the plan to return to the hotel… Sometimes it’s hard for me to understand, sometimes I admire myself how I can manage on my those little mood things. I would love to see everything, but my physical condition has always been a big sign question!

OUTFIT

Sweater: Pal Zileri

Jacket: Burberry

Jeans: Pedro del Hierro

Backpack: Louis Vuitton

Scarf: Burberry

Gloves: Marina Yachting

Camera: Sony Alpha Mark II

 

After we finished another walk tour of the city, I decided that it was better for me to go on one more tour and that I would increase my chances of returning to the hotel as soon as I had a fear of freezing outside. This was my last photo from Dresden and it was spontaneous when the photographer asked me the magical question: “Do you want to go back to the hotel?” My smile just said everything. One more adventure ended, it was time to go home. We learned something new about Dresden and we brought a lot of nice memories from this unusual town.

Adventure in the hotel

When we returned to the room, I realized that we had forgotten about an outfit that I should take photos, it was very cold outside, and the night fell, so this possibility immediately turned out. The photographer gave me the idea to take some photos in the hotel, it’s warm and it’s great lighting, nothing costs us to try it! So in the end, there was… AMAZING!

The staff of the hotel was kind enough to help us with the shooting, so they redirected all the new “inhabitants” of the hotels to the counters that are on the other side, because it was easier for taking photos. Fortunately, we finished shooting in about ten minutes so it did not take so much time. Thanks to the marketing team of the Hyperion am Schloss Hotel on a quick response and that they tried to help me in the shortest period of time, read it like 20 minutes… The staff was wonderful so we got some sweet treats while we wait. The stay at this hotel was wonderful and its location is phenomenal for all those tourists who want to be in the  heart of the city and that all important sights are near to you.

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this special fashion post from magical Dresden. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will explore one of the shopping spots in Italy. I just can’t wait to show you what my friends from McArthurGlen Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet and I have prepared for you guys.
