Spring in Cordoba – Visiting the Flower Patio Festival

The festival is open to the public so that tourists can ooh and aah over how beautiful these homes are. It’s almost as if the event is a scavenger hunt to find the best kept courtyard – and each one I visited was more charming and aromatic than the next. I took so many photos […]


JuliaJune 23, 2016 - 12:43 pm

Awesome pictures! All of those flowers are gorgeous! 🙂

Summertime and the Living’s Easy

H&M blazer // ASOS Lace Romper // Circa Joan & David Pumps I picked up this white lace romper and immediately loved the halter neck, criss cross back and loose short bottom.

Oh my gosh you look way too cute! This lace playsuit is to die for and I really love the detailing in it. I thought you did a fabulous job at looking so chic, especially with this navy blue blazer. I think white and navy blue belong together and are perfect colors for the spring/summer. Plus great choice in nude pumps. You look great!

5 Can’t Miss Sights in Cordoba, Spain

Strategically located on the north bank of the Guadalquivir River, Cordoba was the Roman and Moorish capital of Spain and its old quarter, clustered around its famous Mezquita (mosque), remains one of the country’s grandest and most intimate examples of its Moorish heritage. Cordoba was a medieval city famed for the peaceful and prosperous coexistence […]

Such gorgeous, dreamy photos! I went to Cordoba in 2012 and I loved it!! Happy to see I’ve done most of the things you recommend. Going back to Spain this summer but only for about 5 days unfortunately

ReaJune 19, 2016 - 3:58 pm

Let me start by saying that you have some really beautiful pics! I love Spain so much, especially Andalusia as the mixture with the Arabic culture makes is really special. Although I am originally from Slovenia, I spent 6 years living in Granada and went to Cordoba a couple of times. I’m afraid I’ll have to disappoint you because, to be honest, I’ve only been to Mezquita, while I spent the rest of the time wandering around the streets, having cerveza along with some really good tapas 🙂 I guess I’ll have to go back to tick off the rest of its landmarks! 🙂

Karla StrandJune 19, 2016 - 5:49 pm

What an informative post! I’d love to see the CALLEJA DE LAS FLORES! How true it is to visit popular sights in the morning or at night to avoid the crowds. I did this in Prague and got amazing photos of the city. Cordoba looks incredible. I can totally picture myself strolling the streets and admiring the architecture.

SherJune 21, 2016 - 12:02 am

hey jackie, i hope you check it out! yes, always going early and later seems to help a bit with crowd control 🙂
