The Fantastic Malta Vol.1

Hey guys, its been so long since i wrote something. I have been travelling a lot and having some other stuff. So sorry for that, but i’m here now and everything is back to what they were ;)

My purpose of travelling to Malta was : 1. celebrate my 20th birthday; 2.visit my best friend 3. have some fun and relax from studies and work!(of course)

I was amazed by the wonderful nature of Malta. Trees, water, plants…they were all so exotic and real. And of course the people, it was not so hard to communicate with the local people – basically everyone knew English language.

malta1…April 6-10, those four days were just incredible. We were eating the best of Malta food, fresh vegetables, fresh fish. Fresh fresh fresh. Everything.

By this map, you can see were were I exactly in Malta.

photo1 (2)One of the famous buildings i fell in love instantly in Malta was St. Johns Co-Cathedral in Valleta. It was built by the Knights of Malta between 1573 and 1578, having been commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière as the conventual church of the Order of the Knights Hospitaller of St John, known as the Knights of Malta. The Church was designed by the Maltese military architect Glormu Cassar (Girolamo Cassar) who designed several of the more prominent buildings in Valletta. The church is considered to be one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe and one of the world’s great cathedrals.

New York|USA

Benvenuto! Dear followers, as the spring days are going by we wrote one more interesting and we hope impressive artickle about lovely but not our favorite  NEW YORK city.

Late, peaceful and  calm evening in Milano.My lithuanian friend Zivile is cooking tagliatelle with pesto sauce and we both drinking white Verdicchio wine”Dry, medium-bodied, crisp white with minerally flavor and a sea-air freshness,, after few minutes of this elegant, classic and Italian dinner I’m getting an email that I have to come in Malpensa airport after 2,5 hour! Because I have a shoot in NY!!!! You can’t even try to imagine my reaction when I had read this.. After that shocking 15 minutes starts the worst… packing, unpacking , prepacking….But after all I’m in Malpensa airport! And after 14 hours of flight,I’m in NY.

Tripping from airport.

Manhattan Skylan.

The skyline of New York is changing with so much building going on, but it’s always inspiring and beautiful.In case,every street and park in Manhattan provides a fantastic photograph. The skyline is unique and gorgeous.What is truly different from any other skyline is that when you’re looking at all these biuldings,bridges or panoramics you almost feel like you are looking at a movie set.

CENTRAL PARK

Extending from 59th to 110th streets between 5th and 8th avenues [Central Park West], Central Park is one of the iconic sights of New York City. While it may appear to be a beautiful natural area, be aware that it is entirely man-made except for the glacier scarred protruding rocks.IMG_6707

BROADWAY

Broadway is famous as the pinnacle of the American theatre industry. This district is known for its abundance of theatres. Many of theatres have been in use for over 50 years! Everyone has to visit NY at least once in a lifetime and when there you have to sample Broadway even if you’re not looking to take in a show. This place has a buzz 24/7

TIME SQUARE

I would really recommend going there at night rather than in the day. Probably looks quite tacky in daylight. Lights, bustle, taxis and people everywhere!The guys trying to sell you the bus tickets and comedy tickets are enerally ok and helpful
Be aware of the people dressed up as Disney type characters, don’t even acknowledge them, as soon as you do they swarm on you and want you to have pics taken with them. They seemed to target couples with kids the most.:))

IMG_5575

IMG_5579

Police presence is strong so you always feel safe. Many weird characters can be encountered such as the ” naked cowboy”, Spider-Man,iron man etc but this truly adds to the charm of Times Square.

IMG_5580

IMG_5578

FIFTH AVENUE

Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue are two avenues to see when in NYC. Fifth has one of the best and biggest Apple Stores always worth going in. Department stores, designer stores, and many boutique shops, Tiffany, and whatever you desire.IMG_5577

IMG_5653

IMG_5772

IMG_5769

Think of any world brand you want…Chanel, Dior, Burberry, Hermes, Armani, Versace, Tiffany’s, Cartier…you can find all of this here. Even if you’re not a shopaholic, you should visit it. You don’t need to shop, just walk on it. There’s no way you won’t find anything interesting. The way they are decorated, the windows of the high-end brands are art by themselves. And you don’t always have to buy something. You can always enjoy the window-shopping since most of the stores are extremely expensive.

Greenwich Village

Like a small town within Manhattan, the Village has narrow tree-lined streets and brick townhouses.A great local neighborhood to explore. I often go at night and you’ll be walking down quiet streets by yourself like you are in your hometown with no to little traffic and people around. This place is the complete opposite of Times Square.

IMG_6708

SOHO

SOHO is home to some great shopping and food areas. This is where i shop in NYC – not on 5th ave. It has a local atmosphere while still swallowing in stores and shops. The Uniqlo world headquarters are here (a great store btw) and you’ll find lots of local coffee shops and restaurants and local shops besides the big name brand stores.

IMG_5655

IMG_5652

Dunkin’ Donuts is America’s favorite every day, all-day stop for coffee and baked goods. Dunkin’ Donuts is a market leader in the regular/decaf coffee… Must try! Unfortunately it wasn’t so good as everyone are saying :/

IMG_5656

And for my baby Kamila-Starbucks :))SOOO American ..after Italian espresso it was teribble :D

THE FLATIRON BUILDING

The Flatiron Building is a famous landmark of New York City. It was completed in 1902 and was one of the first buildings in the world to use a steel skeleton.This Daniel Burnham design got its moniker because, as you might guess, it resembles an iron.This is an unusual type building as opposed to square and multistoreyed NewYork city buildings.

IMG_5678

 This building is really worth seeing. It is triangular in the front and is broad at the back. The building is very attractive and can be seen from afar.
Many offices and other businesses inside and we could not go and see the inside the building.
Many television channels and tv serials use this building for television commercials and documentaries. Moveis like Godzilla and Spiderman are shot in this building..

ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s One World Trade Center is redefining Lower Manhattan’s New York skyline. Standing at a symbolic 1,776 feet tall, the architectural and engineering marvel is an ever-present symbol of renewal and hope.

IMG_5657

FRANK GEHRY’S NYC TOWER

IMG_5752

According to its official website, 8 Spruce Street is one of the tallest residential towers in the world. Completed in February 2011,the building was developed by Forest City Ratner, designed by Frank Gehry Architects and WSP Cantor Seinuk Structural Engineers, and constructed by Kreisler Borg Florman. It contains a public elementary school owned by the Department of Education.Above that and grade-level retail, the tower contains only residential rental units (898 in total), a rarity in New York’s Financial District.

THE AMERICAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY

The American Museum of Natural History of New York City is one of the largest and most celebrated museums in the world and my favorite. The Museum comprises 25 interconnected buildings that house 46 permanent exhibition halls, research laboratories, and its renowned library. The collections contain over 150 million specimens, of which only a small fraction can be displayed at any given time. The Museum has a scientific staff of more than 200, and sponsors over 100 special field expeditions each year.

NIGHT LIFE.

THE END

After 2/5 weeks of staying and broading my mind in America I understood that i need more classic,cleanier,historical place to live and at any momemt i thought about desserts,coffe or ice-cream I could’t fall into oblivion my lovely and unforgetable Italy…I prefer creamy Tiramisu, cold and fresh gelato but not snikers or fat donuts :)) So as autumn days was going by i booked a flight to my simple pimple Lithuania.

“Autumn is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”

I hope you all enjoyed my story,I’m truly thanksful for all my friends I met in NY. Jansen,MY Babysavina, Ro Grady,Tim,Julija. Thank you all.

Miami|Florida.

Dear readers, we hope you enjoyed our articles about travels in Italy or Belarus..But now it’s time to look somewhere further !

Miami is hot hot hot! And it’s not just the sultry weather. Here, the nightlife is scorching, thanks to a strong Latin influence and spicy salsa culture. Dance the noche away in a nightclub, or indulge in a fancy meal at one of the city’s celebrity-owned restaurants. By day, hit the beach of course, or have yourself a walkabout, taking in Miami’s colorful art deco architecture. Grab a Cuban sandwich in Little Havana, then ride the vintage carousel at Virginia Key Beach Park.

ImageImageImage

Fort Lauderdale’s canals and charm have earned it the nickname “The Venice of America.” The beaches offer 23 miles of golden sand, lively with the spirited antics of happy vacationers. Sail the blue-green waters on a chartered catamaran, or dive beneath the surface to meet-and-greet the local sea life. Shopping and dining al fresco on Las Olas Boulevard is one of Fort Lauderdale’s greatest pleasures, thanks to adorable shops and prime people-watching.

How to Wear Name Brand Clothes Without Being Called a Poser or Fake

Buongiorno!

Dear followers,as spring is finally starting to come in Lithuania..We wanted to share our ideas about how to choose,wear and buy brand-luxury clothes.

Branded clothing usually comes with good quality and great designs, so nobody can blame you for liking this stuff. If you have decided to go shopping, well, be aware of “fashion police.” If you don’t want to be called fake or poser, these are the advices you need and read on.

1.Figure out why you really like the clothes. Determine whether it’s because of the uniqueness of the design or the quality of the fabric used. If you just wanted to be considered “cool” or “in,” you have to be careful as it may not look good on you.

2.Know your size. Start out by going to the store and trying out the clothes. If you decide to order online or from a catalog, take note of the size that fits you perfectly before you order the clothes. Remember that you have choices. You could shop from catalog, the store or the website. Make sure you have money or your plan will fall apart (and stealing is not an option). If you shop in the website, you have to have a credit card number. If you don’t have one, you could ask your parents to order it for you. You may browse through different sites to determine which offer the cheapest but careful with frauds.

3.Try wearing other clothes beside these branded clothes. There are also cheaper ones but has good quality and great design. It’s only a matter of how you project and carry your clothes!!!!!

That’s how we’re wearing brand clothes with simple ones.

Italy.Part 2 | Bergamo and Lago di Como

Bergamo

Bergamo (population 120,000) is an extremely pretty old town in Lombardy, on the edge of the Alps. Bergamo’s original location was a defensive hilltop, and the town was also protected by stout walls; nowadays this historic part of town is known as the Città Alta (upper town) and it’s where you will find most of the historic buildings and tourist sights. There is little traffic, and the narrow lanes are pleasant to wander.

Image

Città alta” (upper city), a hilltop medieval town, surrounded by 17th-century defensive walls. The town is connected to the “Città bassa” (lower city) by funicular/cable car, roads, and foot-paths.
Parking spaces are very limited in the upper city so it is better to take the funicular or the bus (10 minutes  from the railway station).

ImageImage

I know..Im limited edition because i love italian door bells :))

Image

Image

Numerous places of interest including:
Cittadella (Citadel), Piazza Vecchia (old square),Palazzo della Ragione, Palazzo Nuovo , Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore (Saint Mary Major),Cappella Colleoni (Colleoni chapel), annexed to Santa Maria Maggiore, is a masterwork of Renaissance architecture and decorative art………..
The small snaky roads with an infinity of typical Italian shops……

Image

Image

So! Beautiful! Beautiful! Beautiful! I’m not a person to give out amazing reviews unless I truly mean it. Bergamo is beautiful, people are lovely and the city is small but charming. Great place for a break and just relax and indulge in cheese, hams and wine.

Lac’o di como. Belalgio,Varrena,Como

 Is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Como in the Italian region Lombardy, located on Como lake.

Bellagio.“Pearl of the Lake”

Very attractive town at the junction of the two ‘legs’ of the lake. Can be expensive. This is the busiest of the tourist oriented towns. Bellagio is a hub for the boat service on the lake.Image

Image

Bellagio’s world class hotels and restaurants provide the perfect place to soak up the lake’s famous panorama. The village is characterised by century-old buildings, stone lanes and picturesque cobbled stairways filled with shops showcasing the finest Italian wares.

Image

Follow one of our historic walking tours for an insight into days gone by, or follow your taste buds to the fresh fruit flavours of gelato – or the wonderful aromas of café – of the kind found only in Italy.

Image

ImageImage

A wonderful climate to relax, take part in sport or lake activities and all against the backdrop of this stunning lake and it’s magnificent villas.

Image

After half of a day trip to  Bellagio we took ferry to other city -Varenna.

ImageImageImageImage

Varenna is built upon a rock at the foot of a mountain which rises almost
vertically above it, leaving the skeleton of a ruined ancient castle exposed to
the sky. Its community dates back to the Roman age.

Image

Image

Orrido di Bellano.

Image

ImageImageImageImage

Gushing waterfalls and natural rock formations tucked in a little corner of Bellano, near Como Lake, this is a gem not to be missed. Few tourists know of this place and one can have the comfort and silence of being alone to enjoy this natural wonder. It simply energizes you.

Image

I STOLE A SMALL TWIG OF GRAPES…BUT SHSSSSS….

ImageImageImage

Our little baby Fiat 500 :)

Image

Image

Villa Cipressi gives the possibility to visit, through a botanic pathway,
century-old gardens with tiered terraces till the lake, containing plants of a
rare beauty and worldwide botanic importance.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Villa Monastero is beautiful, to say the least. The extent of the gardens is fantastic, and they are extremely well kept. There is also a small coffee shop in the gardens for a drink while you walk. There are statues and many amazing sculptures. It is easy to spend hours in the shade of the trees, taking in the view of the lake. Definitely worth a visit.

Como city.

Salade caprese| Tun carpaccio……The best of all

Image

Ahh i don’t forgot to taste Italian gelato..FOR SURE!  In English it generally refers to varieties of ice cream made in a traditional Italian style. Gelato is made with milk, cream, various sugars, and flavoring such as fresh fruit and nut purees.

Image

Dear,Followers thank you for reading our blog! I hope your next vacation will be Lago di Como or maybe…..Miami! But about this at the next artickle. Please share,comment and like. But dont forget that all photo rights are saved by Theageofcharm!

Meet Joelle: My Passion is Fashion

Hello,

The Age of Charm girls are starting to do some new things: Interviews! So the first one we had a change to interview was an amazing fashion blog by Joelle Regh. ,,Fashion diaries from a german girl living the american dream” is her description in her blog. Her name is Joelle Regh and she is originally from Hamburg, Germany. She is going to college, majoring in Communications and she has a passion for fashion.

joellestyle

 

,,I love to share my ideas, inspiration, tips and tricks with everyone on my Fashion Blog” she says.

The interview:

1.      Where do you get your inspiration from?

I get my inspiration from anywhere. I love going through magazines and checking out the newest trends. Furthermore I get some of my inspiration from the weather outside. If it’s snowing outside I might wear an all white outfit, or sometimes I’ll wear an all black outfit. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and I love all the colors of Fall. Important is to be open minded and inspiration will find you.

2.      Who are your 5 favorite designers?

My blog is about affordable fashion. It doesn’t matter how much money you spend on your clothes, jewelry, shoes and bags. It matters what they look like and how you style them. You can look like a million bucks, without spending too much money. I would say that Michael Kors is one of my favorite designers right now, because I have a watch and a purse that I use/wear every day. I love his purse collection every season and his jewelry is gorgeous. I also love Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes and Givenchy. But besides these high end brands, I love to go shopping at H&M, ZARA, ASOS and Forever 21. Tj Maxx is one of my favorite stores, because you can get expensive designer pieces for an affordable price.

3.      How would you describe your style

I would describe my style as constantly evolving. I wear whatever I think looks good and if it’s a trend or not, as long as I feel comfortable with it and I think it looks good I’ll wear it. I love to wear very colorful outfits, but sometimes I also wear all white or black outfits.

4.      Why did you start a blog?

I’ve always liked Fashion and liked to dress up for any occasion and even just going to school. When I started reading Fashion Blogs such as The Blonde Salad by Chiara Ferrangi; Peace Love Shea by Shea Marie and Saucy Glossie by Lindsey Calla I fell in love with Fashion even a little bit more. These Fashion Blogs inspired me to start writing my own. I loved the idea of sharing my Fashion tips and outfits with other girls who love fashion as much as I do.

5.      What are your goals (aims)? (with this blog and seperately)

My goal with this blog is to give my lovely readers some inspiration in Fashion, give some lifestyle advice and tips and looking like a million bucks without spending a fortune. I hope to reach a broader audience and as of right now I have about 21,000+ followers on Facebook. Besides wishing success for my blog, I hope to receive my Bachelor’s degree in Communications within the next 2 years and afterwards I would like to start a career in Fashion and working in NYC.

The End.
