With a hint of Summer 

The weekend is upon us, Lovies! In honor of Throwback Thursday, I’ll be sharing an outfit from last summer. I was in Nessebar with my s/o when we decided to follow these random signs, discreetly pointing to an Eko Bar. We weren’t sure what we are getting into and the place turned out to be mind blowing! Someone transformed their backyard into a hand made cave bar! 

Our scheduled date night turned into a Wonderland adventure! I’m glad I chose this fabulous dress (I made it myself), for that particular night! I strongly recommend you find the Eko Bar on your next hipster adventure in Old Town Nessebar, Bulgaria! 

I don’t know about you but I can’t wait for these long summer nights with loud music and cold drinks! 
With Love, Silvia Mèlange

                С полъх на лято 



Уикенда е почти тук, Любовчета! 

Днес ще ви върна назад във времето с полъх на лято! Миналата година посетих Несебър с половинката ми. Беше петък вечер, традицонната ни месечна среща. Разхождахме се из стария град и на шега решихме да следваме случайните табелки със стелки, които забелязахме дискретно окачени на няколко стари сгради. Така намерихме Еко Бар Майкъл! Невероятно местенце; бивш заден двор преустроен в ръчно изработена пещера с мостове и водопади в самия бар! 

Както снимките по-горе подсказват, срещата ни се пренесе в страната на чудесата! Горещо ви препоръчвам да издирите бара следващият път, когато посетите стария град! 

Не знам за вас, но аз вече нямам търпение да дойдат дългите летни нощи със студен коктейл и солен полъх!

Last beach day with H&M

It’s my last day by the beach for this year, so I decided to wear my favorite piece of the Summer. 

I’m totally obsessed with this kimono style dress I got from H&M in the beginning of the season. The color patterns and the length allow it to be worn as a dress, with shorts, leggings or as a beach cover up. The unusual design, combined with the bright colors won’t go out of style for years to come-that’s a promise! For this look, I combined it with Guess flip flops, a beach tote from Victoria’s Secret and Oakley shades. 



My Summer by the Bulgarian seaside was absolutely amazing and I want to take this time to thank everyone who helped me create memories and discover new places❣

Until next year, Silvia Mèlange 

    
           

       Последен плажен ден с H&M



Днес е последният ми плажен ден за годината. Реших, че би било уместно да приключа морската си ваканция с любимата ми дреха за лятото.

Обожавам роклята стил “кимоно” на която попаднах в H&M Витошка в началото на сезона.

 Цветовете и дължината позволяват да се носи като рокля, след плаж, с шорти и дори с клин при по-хладно време. Свежия дизайн и страхотния флирт на цветовете я прави абсолютно универсална и ви гарантирам, че няма да излезе от мода с години! Днес я комбинирах с чехли от Guess, плажна чанта от Victoria’s Secret и очила Oakley. 

Споделям и снимки от разходката ми из Пловдив от май тази година, когато не беше достатъчно топло за кимоното, но нямах търпение да я нося! 

Тази година посетих българското Черноморие за първи път от 2008 година. Преживяването беше страхотно и искам да благодаря на всички, които по един или друг начин станаха част от това страхотно приключение! 

До нови срещи! Силвия Меланж 

Old Town Nessebar *Fashion Explorations*

Rainy days happen. Besides, sun through clouds is the perfect light for a fashion blogger! 

Sure, I’d love to just be lazy at the beach but instead of complaining and watching movies all day, I decided to grab an umbrella and get lost in the ancient streets of Old Town Nessebar. The small island, now connected to the main land, is in the UNESCO World Heritage sites list, housing over 3 millennia of history. It’s an honor to just be able to walk on these roads and it provides many perfect backdrops for photos 😉 For today’s session, I’m using the the Old Bishopic St. Sofia church, one of the oldest Eastern-Orthodox churches in the world. 

I’m wearing a sea themed Angelo Marani top, Sisley-Benetton kaki shorts, gold wedges from Ralph Lauren and a Coach bag to complete the look. 

As most of you know by now, I love to travel and ancient cities and ruins are my weakness. When exploring places like this, it’s important to wear comfortable and reliable shoes. I prefer flats but these wedges are my feet’s bffs and current summer favorites! 

Stay tuned as there’s a special Travel entry covering the town and its fascinating history and landscapes! If you can’t wait, follow me on Instagtam and snapchat (@SilviaMelange) for daily updates. 

How’s your summer going? Did you visit a hidden gem you think I should know about? Let me know in the comments and feel free to share what do you think of this look? 

Stylish travels, Silvia Mèlange 

               Несебър-стария град

              *Стилни пътешествия*



Дъждът е нещо неизбежно. Плюс това слънце през облаци е перфектната светлина за модния блогър! 

Да, бих предпочела да се излежавам на плажа, но вместо това грабнах чадъра и излязох с намерението да се загубя сред древните улици. Малкият остров, с над 3 хилядолетна история е в листа на Юнеско за световни древни селища, карайки те да се чувстваш специален само, защото стъпваш по улиците му. Сред безбройните красиви изгледи, избрах църквата Св. София, една от най-старите православно християнски църкви на света. 

Облечена съм с топ от моряшката колекция на Angelo Marani, панталонки от колаборацията на Benetton и Sisley, обувки Ralph Lauren, завършвайки визията с чанта Coach. 

Както вероятно сте забелязали, обожавам да пътувам и древните селища са ми слабост. Когато посещавате подобни места, удобните обувки са ключови. Обикновено предпочитам плоски обувки, но тези платформи са най-добрите приятели на краката ми това лято! 

Абонирайте се за блога ми, следва статия фокусирана върху Несебър и богата история и гледки. Ако сте нетърпеливи, последвайте ме в инстаграм и снапчат (@SilviaMelange) за всекидневни постове. 

Как прекарвате вашето лято? Някакви тайни места, които смятате, че трябва да посетя? Оставете ми коментар или изкажете вашето мнение за днешната ми визия 💋

Beach Monday 

Few things measure up to the feeling of waking up on a Monday, knowing the toughest decision you have to make today is which beach to go to and where to have dinner! Not trying to brag but yours truly is on a much needed vacation, exploring the Bulgarian seaside. I haven’t visited since 2007 so I have a lot of catching up to do! 

One of my favorite things about going to the beach, besides going, is getting dressed for the walk there. I miss the days when I lived a block away from the beach and my wardrobe was consistent of 80% coverups, beach dresses and over 50 pairs of flip flops. I still manage to include coverups and see-through dresses and blouses in my urban wardrobe with the inevitable black top underneath but it’s just not the same.  

Today I paired up one of my favorite pieces from Macy’s with shorts from Zara, Guess flip-flops and shades from Oakley. 


I’m not going to reveal exact details of my location. I’ll just say it’s a beach in Old Town Nessebar only locals know about ;] Empty beach and clean water- what more can you want?! 
Love from the Black Sea, Silvia Mèlange 

                   Плажен понеделник




Малко неща могат да бъдат сравнени с чувството да се събудиш в понеделник сутрин, знаейки че най-трудното решение за деня ще бъде къде да отидеш на плаж и къде да вечеряш! 

Не се опитвам да се хваля, но моя милост е на заслужена ваканция, наслаждавайки се на българското Черноморие. Не съм посещавала от 2007 г. така че имам много да наваксвам! 

Едно от любимите ми неща (освен самото плажуване), е избора на облекло за разходката до пясъка. Липсват ми дните, когато живеех на една пряка от плажа и гардеробът ми се състоеше от около 80% плажни шалове, рокли и над 50 чифта чехли. Все още успявам да вмъкна прозиращи блузи и материи в градският ми гардероб, но не е същото благодарение на неизменния черен потник отдолу. 

Днес комбинирах една от любимите ми плажни туники, флорален десен от Macy’s, с къси черни шорти Zara, джапанки от Guess и очила Oakley. 

Няма да разкривам детайли от точната ми локация. Само ще споделя, че е таен плаж в старата част на Несебър, за който знаят шепа местни хора. Пространство и чиста вода, какво друго е нужно?!

Plovdiv, Bulgaria: The time traveling entry

Ancient and Eternal- the city’s motto fits perfectly. Also known as “the city of the seven hills” due to its location, Plovdiv is the second largest city in Bulgaria and in the top five oldest cities in the world. 

It’s one of my favorite cities and last time I was here was the day after my 18th birthday; the day I fell in love with the way ancient and modern history blend in like it was meant to look this way even 5000 years ago. 

The city consists of two parts: old town and modern day Plovdiv. As you guys should know by now I’m a sucker for history, so I was quick to put on my walking shoes and “get lost” in the most ancient part of the city. 

Starting at the East gate which still has the original pavement from over 6000 years ago when the area was part of the Roman Empire. The East gate was the shopping district, housing only the wealthiest families with the road, leading to the amphitheater and the coliseum up the hill. 

Crossing the modern day road, I climbed my first hill, a gorgeous blend between the ancient roman road(5000 yo), Turkish Empire castle walls (built in the 15th century) and the 150 year old post slavery houses. 

Continuing up, I have to note my favorite feature about post-slavery houses from the beginning of the 20th century. You will notice on the pic below how one part of the house is constructed outward- a traditional Gossip room. What is that you ask?- after about 500 years of slavery, the Bulgarian aristocracy was fast developing. The socialites spent their days drinking tea and coffee in said rooms, keeping track on everything happening below them on the then Main Street of Plovdiv, who was spotted with whom, the works. A whole room designed exclusively for a vintage (or maybe original is the word), Gossip Girl! 

We reached our destination- Nebet Tepe. 

Believed to be a magical place, not just because of the view. This hill is said to be a sacred ground for ancient Thracian tribes, who enhabited Bulgaria 7000-8000 years ago. It’s believed the goddess Hekate preformed rituals here so the place is loaded with positive energy. Another theory states that’s the whole reason ancient Romans chose it as the main fortress in the area.  


Tunnel entrance, dating back to Roman times, believed to be a part of an underground tunnel system, spreading throughout Europe

Just a few blocks up another hill, one can find the magnificent amphitheater, still performing over 5000 years after it was originally built. The entrance is only €5 per person and it’s an absolute must-see! 

Our guide was a local ❤️

Another fabulous street down before the majestic Coliseum:

The original Coluseum remodel: just thinking that 5000 years ago, real gladiators walked these roads, sacrifices took place, people walked, preparing to face or possibly meet death itself… 

the original Coliseum

Such a small part remains, yet it’s still so easy to feel the excitement as you walk the tunnel passage leading to the battle grounds. Even the bravest warriors must have paused for a second, hearing the crowd’s roars louder and louder. 

Once you are up the steps and you look ahead, you get an instant “slap” back into present day times. Welcome to downtown Plovdiv, the shopping district! 

There are still quite a few places I didn’t manage to cover in this visit but I’ll definitely be coming back here! 

There are cats EVERYWHERE! Adding a little extra to the Roman vibe ❤️

Focus on creating memories, invest in experiences, not material possessions!

Nightlife in Wiesbaden (A visitor’s guide)

Hey guys! Today I will be sharing my impressions from Wiesbaden’s night life. I was in the area for a week so I gotta tell you, between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden that was a lot of bar and club hopping ;] I love variety so I always try to experience these three basic types of places the least everywhere I go; local, international and high end. That rule of mine goes for everything: bars, restaurants, museums, tourist spots etc. So here are the nightlife locations I recommend in Wiesbaden, Germany:

 

  1. Pupasch Wiesbaden

 

Literally translated, the name means “fart a$$”. It’s totally worth visiting even if it’s just to say you partied at a pub with such a hilarious name! You also get a German style shot at the door just because you came in! It’s a cool place where you can meet a wide variety of people and everyone speaks English. There’s a dance floor and quieter areas if you wish to have a nice conversation while enjoying a German beer and/or munchie foods. Very affordable and fun to hang out!

 

  1. Manoamano

 

If you are looking for a chill, lounge type of place with a huge variety of cocktails from all over the world (made right btw) and countless burger options, this is the place for you! The friendly English speaking staff and the affordable prices make Manoamano the perfect pit-stop for travelers and it’s located close to the major train station. Bonus points from me for having indoor and outdoor options, I will be returning in the summer!

 

  1. Park Café

 

Glam vibe, high-end interior design and a fab drink selection. There’s a spacious dance-floor and stashed-away corners. Park Café is one of the hottest spots in downtown Wiesbaden and I highly advice you to make a reservation prior to visiting. There’s a strict dress-code so bring your A game!

 

  1. Das Lokal

 

An awesome dive bar with delicious German food and plenty of beers to choose from! Perfect for pregame or a brunch with friends after a crazy night out!

 

  1. Irish Pub

 

The full definition of one! From the beer, to the hole-in-the-wall appearance and feeling like you’ve been here before, like you belong, as soon as you walk in. Great live music, open mics and karaoke nights. It’s loud enough to enjoy the music but you don’t have to yell in someone’s ear to have a conversation. The Irish Pub turned into my instant favorite so be sure to check it out!

 

  1. Scarabea Orient lounge

 

If you are into shisha bars, that’s the place to visit! Chill lounge atmosphere with middle-eastern music mixes and the hookahs tasting like you bit into a fruit. You can meet all kinds of fascinating people here so be prepared to hang out longer than you originally planned!

 

  1. Europalace Mainz-Kastel

 

Okay, that’s a 10 minute cab ride from Wiesbaden. There’s a freaking pirate ship in this club!!!!! There are two main halls- techno and hip-hop. Then there are smaller rooms with German music, disco and more! Another “It” place on this list also because of the list of celebrities constantly visiting or preforming in the club! There’s no drink the bartenders can’t mix and there are plenty of affordable options as well as high-end liquors and champagne. Keep in mind they also have a dress-code and it’s wise to make a reservation, especially if you plan on staying all night.

 

I’m sure I missed plenty of cool locations but I only had so much time! Let me know in the comments what places should I visit next time I’m the area? Do you agree with my list?

-Party rock on, Silvia Mélange
