Worth a visit girls!

Posted on 11 March 2014

Creative bags with a personal touch for an affordable price, you will find at Le Pandorine.

I made a visit at their flagship shop during my stay in Milan and took pleasure in reading all the nice and sometimes daring statements on their bags.

Wether you are looking for a handbag, a shopping bag or a beach bag, they have it all.

The prices are affordable, depending on the model and size, approximately between 25 and 65 EURO.

For this price range, don’t expect any leather but mostly plastic and faux leather.

A nice bag that glans up your day and that of others.

During my last stay in Milan, I discovered Baobab Organic Burger. In this place you can eat a healthy burger and fries made from fresh, biologic ingredients. I ate a regular burger with mozzarella and it was truly one of the most delicious burgers I ever ate. The quality of the meat is supreme. On top of that the people who served me were very friendly.
