Winter in Krakow, Poland

So, I haven't traveled in winter two years in a row and I miss it so much. I know it's not ideal for me as I am not very good with the cold weather, but there's something about seeing a different city in winter time. Perhaps, it's the snow.  Of all my winter travels, Krakow is one of my favourites.    The Wawel Castle St. Mary's Basilica (Kościół Mariacki) The Old Town square at night If there's one thing that I really enjoyed in Krakow, it was our visit to the Jewish Ghetto: To get to the Ghetto from the centre of town, you need to get Tram 13 or 7 I actually only watched Schindler's List two days before we left for Poland. I didn't realize that I would actually one day visit this place. Inside the museum is also a letter written by Roman Polanski (movie director) when he was 8. If we came here in 2006, then we would have seen the original gate. This is a must- see in Krakow. You should not leave Krakow without visitin

Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Flats for Rainy Days

So rainy days are here again. For me, rainy days are not all about wearing boots or wellies. Sometimes I also want to wear ballerinas or any sort of flat shoes. But I remember last year when I had my Tory Burch Eddie flats. I used it once on a European trip and oh boy, did it rain hard. First of all, I knew that it might rain, but I also wanted to be a bit fashionable. Basically the clothes I chose to wear really wouldn't go with boots, so I didn't have a choice but to wear my flats. And the end result? Murder. I since have thrown the flats away because I could no longer use it.  So, this year I promised myself to find a nice pair of flats that is not leather so I can just wear it in the rain without having to worry about it being destroyed. And yes, I found one: This pair of Vivienne Westwood + Melissa jelly flats are so perfect for my rainy days. Not only that they are comfortable, I don't have to worry if they get wet.
