Welcome to my world of wanderlust. My name is Teona and this is my blog. This is a place for all my creative thoughts that I carry on daily.
This is my blog world, created in 2016, with the purpose to create a place where I can express myself through my photos and words.
My blog is the reflection of all my interests, passions and loves, but also my personality.


New York City or The Big Apple is definitely one of the must visit cities before you die. When people ask me to explain NYC in a few words I always say: NYC is many things across the spectrum. It is a city that really has a lot to offer wether that is career or work wise, culture and music, fashion, gastronomy, history…which is why this city can easily be overwhelming. I am fortunate to be calling it home for the past 2 years, its been a pinch me moment since I am head over heels in love with this city. 


Finally found time to sit down and write the recap from Milan Fashion Week. This year for the first time ever I did both New York and Milan fashion weeks, and somebody pinch me because it had been my dream to do so. New York fashion week was more laid back for me few shows and few events. Whereas, Milan was a packed schedule of shows, presentations, events and parties. And I could not be more grateful for having the opportunity and chance to attend shows and presentations by brands that I truly love. 


The City of Brotherly Love [Philadelphia Travel Guide]

Wanted a change of scenery from NYC, so we decided to make a little road trip and head to Philadelphia for the weekend. Just 2 hours drive from Manhattan, you can easily make it as a day trip. This was my first time visiting Philadelphia and the state of Pennsylvania, so my to see list was pretty extensive. 

Philadelphia the name made out of the two Greek words philio (love) and adelphos (brother) got the name “The City of Brotherly Love”. Philadelphia also known as Philly is the largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, until 1800 it was the capitol city of the US. Therefore, this city has a lot of rich history and significant historic landmarks. 


Are you organized person or a complete mess? If you fall in the second category you have come to the right place.

In this blog post I will explain in detail how I organize my life, tips and tricks that helped me figure out the “best” system for me, as well as general guidelines to begin with organizing.

Starting to organize yourself can seem extremely hard and overwhelming. Not knowing where to start or how…But, don’t be discouraged there are a few simple steps that will help you start. It may take some trial and error until you find a system that works the best for you, but once you do your day to day life will feel so much easier.


Its that time of the year where I share with you my annual winter reading list. I have been doing this for the past 6 years, and its one of my favorite blog posts to write.

I like to spend my free time curled up in a corner and reading a book, and I do frequently share book recommendations on my instagram, so if you don’t follow me there make sure to give me a follow to see some more book recommendations.



San Francisco is a must stop when visiting California. For California specifically I say a road trip through the state is the best way, you can check out my California Travel Guide for more details. Located in the northern part of California surrounded by beautiful nature, beaches and the ocean. San Francisco is known for many things such as being the start-up and tech hub of the world, home of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, beautiful nature, eclectic music scene, the best place in the world to eat Asian food after Asia and many more.


365 days flew by [2022 recap]

And just like that 2022 is finished. I remember as a child my father telling me how as one gets older, time passes faster. Back then I didn’t really understand what he means or how can time pass faster for one person and not for other. Since the year has 365 days and each day has 24 hours for everyone, but now I understand.

Time feels like its flying and before you know it current events become memories of the past. This year flew by for me, it was also a very dynamic and fast-paced year for me, which adds to the feeling of lasting not too long.


Looking back through photos from past years, I realized that my “gingerbread house making” tradition has been happening for 9 years…And it’s so wonderful that the past 6 years and gingerbread houses have been documented here on my blog, you can check them out here.

Christmas has been my favorite holiday ever since I was a child and looking back there are so many memories from all the Christmas holidays spent at home with my parents…


There are so many things to see and do in NYC. Something that you should not miss is visiting some of its world famous museums. My advice to everyone that visits NYC is to at least make time to visit one museum.

One of my favorite activities to do in NYC on a weekday is to go to a Museum, in this past year I’ve been to almost all museums in NYC area (missing a few more that I am planning to visit in the next few months).
