The most artistic face of Prague

Hello everyone!

Today Im going to write about an amazing city where I’ve been two weeks ago: Prague. The streets of this city part of the  Czech Republic are full of beautiful monuments and historic memory but there is also another face of this city that really surprised me which is the creative and artistic atmosphere that surrounds it. You could perceive this artistic facet in the Wall of John Lennon, but if you want to avoid the touristic aglomerations, just take a walk around the city and you will discover musemus,galleries or just little pieces of art decorating the walls of Prague. But also at night you can find really artistic and original locals where you can take a drink listening  the  beats of the latest musical trends; Cross Club, where I’ve been in my first night is a good example. This club is ornamentated with recycled scrap and its rooms are full of lights effects creating an underground atmosphere that combines perfectly with the music and the people that you can find there. If you preffer something more commercial you should go to Karlovy Lazne, one of the biggest clubs in Central Europe, with 5 floors with different music, an ice bar and quite a good price ( 6€ aprox.)

The night life in Prague is amazing, for sure but if you go to visit it, be sure to not forget the day life which is also really nice. I encourage anyone to visit the Charles Bridge and the Castle, where you can have a panoramic view of the city. But in my opinion, the best way to visit a city is to walk around it and not focusing only in the touristic points, this way you can really enjoy the best of Prague and discover the heart of the city.

One morning in the biggest flea market of Amsterdam

Hello everyone!

Today Im going to talk about one of the biggest flea markets of Europe, IJ-hallen in Amsterdam noord ( the north of Amsterdam). I`ve visted it the first weekend of this month with my Italian friend Clara and we are totally in love with this market!

This event takes places only once per month, usually the first weekend  and is held in two enormous warehouses . There are more or less 500 stands where you can find all kind of stuff from vintage clothing to mirrors or dolls  at an incredibly cheap price. Besides some months are specialised in certain kind of products.

When I first knew about this market, I though it would be simmilar to Waterlooplein market, which is the most famous flea market in Amsterdam. However, there is no comparison possible between both markets. The undergound atmosphere, the prices, or the people that you can find at the IJ-hallen makes of this market much more authentic than Waterlooplein market,that is usually visited by hordes of tourists and where the prices are really over the top.

The entrance fee is 4 €, but the market totally worths this price, not only for the charming atmosphere that surrounds it but also the general prices are really low, you can find vintage treasures for less than 5€!! I really encourage anyone to visit this market if you have the opportunity!

How to get there?

We went to Central Station, where we took a free ferry direction N.D.S.M. There are ferries continuously doing this route, and you can even take your bike with you if you want to feel like a real Amsterdammer!When you arrive at the harbor it takes only a couple of minutes to arrive there, just follow the people!

Some tips??

Bring bags from home!!! Most of the times when you buy something they won’t give you a bag so if you go there, remember this tip because it will be really useful.

I hope you’ve enjoy the post and dont miss the opportunity to visit this amazing market!!

¿Cartier or Cuntier?

What started as a reaction against fashion is becoming a trend actually.  The idea is creating a new brand based on another famous one, one of the most known examples was created by the blogger KTHNASBYE who placed the word “Cuntier” in his hoods arousing the anger of the directives of Cartier, who are thinking abput taking legal actions against the student of Parsons who is behind this blog.

Oriental inspiration, like it or not?

These time, fashion brands went too far to pick some inspiration, specifically to the exotic Orient. It wont be difficult for you to find dragons and tigers in any fashion store all over the clothes.
