Milan – the capital of fashion, the mecca of fashionistas and the dream city of every woman out there. Me, Kätriin and Marii decided to meet up there and spend our weekend in the most girly way one can imagine. But it wasn’t just for shopping and aperitivo – every minute of our stay was planned – we had a lot of places to visit and shoots to be done. However, as true bloggers and well… women, we couldn’t not fit shopping into our busy schedule. We had our wish-lists and wallets prepared. We had exactly two hours dedicated to shopping. Via Monte Napoleone was waiting for us.
I’ve always said that shopping does make me happy and it is the best kind of therapy – both mental and physical. Walking 25 000 steps from store to store, carrying heavy bags, having no time to eat and spending half of the day in fitting rooms – that really is a good cardio. And I’m dead serious here. The second best part is the actual process off shopping. The whole experience and the idea of making your dreams come true i.e. ticking items off your wish-list really does give you endorphins. And yes, I’ve always admitted – I like my money right where I can see it, (hanging) in my closet.
Two hours for shopping was too optimistic. We lost the track of time and discovered ourselves six hours later. Three exhausted but happy girls. With our hands full of shopping bags and Moët minis to celebrate. Because 1) we are officially spoiled with champagne. 2) There is always a reason to celebrate. And successful shopping really is a good enough reason – we made some of our small dreams come true. Cheers to that!
