Long time no talk guys! Yes, I'm finally back into the blogging world. Oh... and how much I missed writing. So much has happened this year. I've been pretty busy with uni before summer started. But I'm getting back on track now and have many post ideas coming up, so stay tuned for that. Hope this year has been great so far and all of you had an amazing summer!
The feeling of sitting on my desk and doing nothing else besides writing feels great! Today it's all about my travel moments.
Some of you who follow me on instagram, already knew I went to Vietnam this summer. After 4 years, I finally had the chance to come back and visit my lovely family, which I have been missing a lot. This summer was an unforgettable holiday for me. Lots of memories were made and most importantly being able to spend time with the most precious people is absolute wonderful.
Even though I stayed there for almost 4 weeks, time past by within a blink. It's hard to say goodbye in the end, but knowing you will see them again, is a moment you can look forward to in the future.
Before arriving at the main destination, I had to transfer flights in Seoul (South Korea). And of course I had to try the authentic bibimbap there. Honestly, the bowl I got was just a bit too much filled with goodness. But I have to admit that it tasted luscious! I love the fact that dishes are served with side dishes, which gives you that little extra taste.
I have to admit Vietnam is a paradise for food lovers! (speaking of myself) Next to glorious authentic Vietnamese food, you can also find lots of restaurants that offer Japanese, Thai, Chinese, Korean and Western food. One restaurant I kept coming back to was a Japanese restaurant named 'Sushi Hokkaido Sachi'. They offer an extensive menu with so many dishes to choose from. The prices are on the pricey side, but the delightful sushi makes it worth the money.
How much I missed the drinks in Vietnam! I'm talking about bubble tea and the fresh pressed juices. The flavour and topping variations are endless here. One of my all time favorites must be the matcha bubble tea. The drink is not to sweet nor tasteless, just the right amount of sweetness.
Visiting an Island with crystal clear water and white beaches has always been a dream of mine. You could tell how excited I must have been when my family planned a short trip to the island Phu Quoc. I got to stay at Wildland resort in Ham Ninh. In general, a pleasant stay with neat rooms, a swimming pool and a small private beach.
Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to behold the beautiful clear sea during sunny daylight. The days were cloudy and rainy during my stay.
I would recommend everyone to visit Phu Quoc during the dry season. The weather is at its best between November to March. You can definitely count on days filled with rain and rough seas during the Summer months. And yes, I did learn from my mistake of visiting this Island during summer and will definitely come back during peak season.
I must have visit too many temples during my stay in Vietnam. This country literally has temples everywhere. The beautiful architecture, style, materials and colors fascinates me everytime.
Did you know I have a weakness for green parcs filled with blooming flowers, plants and trees?Having a slow walk, breathing fresh air and enjoying the quietness makes me feel at ease and pf course very peaceful.

Thank you for reading and have a wonderful week! ♥
First time visiting a food truck festival and won't be my last for sure! I would highly recommend these festivals if you want to ty a variation of different kinds of food. Calling out all food lovers out there!
Finally had the chance to meet the lovely blogger Chloe from Ohsowai. We decided to have a cosy tea time with a piece of cheesecake at the CheesecakeCompany. Can't wait to see her again in soon!
I've seen this macaron dessert many times on social media and couldn't say no, when I saw L'aduree selling them in Paris during summer. The rose flavoured ice cream was so soft and luscious. There was no way of dissapointing me.
I felt very lucky to be able to see this stunning view again after a year. The city of love keeps mesmerize me every time.
During summer I visited this beautiful city called Luxembourg. At first I wasn't expecting much too be honest, but this thought has changed after seeing it for myself. The parc looked so magical and romantic. I could stroll there for hours!
In November I had the opportunity to take a short trip to Paris with my little brother. Such an experience to travel without parents. This was the first time I could plan my own schedule to see places I wanted to visit and also my first time visiting a gallery, which was pretty interesting.
During the Christmas days, I received some lovely Christmas cards from friends around the world, which I'm very grateful too. One card which I got was from the lovely girl Ashiyad.
I wanted to thank everyone who was by my side, supported me and made 2015 a year to remember! Can't wait to spent time with you all and make new memories in 2016! :)
Thank you for reading and have a great monday! ♥
First of all, I wanted to announce a small update about my blog. You guys might have noticed a small change already. I decided to change my blog name 'Style à la My' into 'Enmyvida'. I actually wanted to make this change for a while now and I finally did. At first when I started this blog, I thought I would blog mostly about fashion. But after a few years, I realized I'm not only writing about fashion, but also about beauty and traveling a lot. That's why I made this decision. If you guys are wondering, the name 'Enmyvida' is derived from the words en mi vida, which means in(to) my life. But I changed mi into my name :) What do you think of my name? ^^
And now, onto my Paris trip. Last month I went to Paris for a second time this year. Train tickets were on big movember sale for such a bargain! And of course for a Paris lover as myself, I could not stop myself from going. After waiting for about 4 hours, I was able to get the desired train tickets. This time I visited some interesting places, which I've never been before. It was my first time visiting a gallery and although I'm not passionated about art, I find it pretty interesting to look at. Besides, I also visited Champs-Élyésees, Jardin du Luxembourg, Galeries Lafayette and The Marais for some sightseeing and not to forget shopping! I would highly recommend The Marais if you're into vintage clothing. Streets there are filled with vintage shops and lots of small restaurants. A very cozy place I would say :)
Kris Ruhs exhibition "Hanging Garden" at Galerie Alaïa. I guess this might have took forever to finish. But the result is outstanding!
Since it's almost Christmas season, I also decided to take a look at the luxurious department store Galeries Lafayette to see the huge decorated christmas tree inside.
The famous Luxembourg Garden! This was ranked high on my must-Paris list. I find French gardens and architecture so stunning to look at. I must say you never get tired of the beautiful buildings in Paris. In fact they amaze me :)
