PLACES TO EAT IN ISTANBUL

I'm really looking forward to sharing today's post. Just writing this post and looking at these photos reminds me of how delicious the food was in Istanbul. My mouth waters when I think about it... haha! Take me back just for the food. I'm sharing a few of the amazing restaurants we visited while in Istanbul. 

Have a look..

Spectre Restaurant

Right in the heart of Istanbul  and a few minutes walk from the Sultan Ahmed Square you'll find amazing food. I loved that there were so many options along with pizza, and pasta in case you were feeling home sick.

Sarnic Premier Hotel Cafe & Restaurant

We actually had dinner at our hotel one evening as we didn't want to venture out too far. I just was having a craving for pasta and I ended up getting the spaghetti bolognese and I was blown away.

Pastarito

One of our favourites was actually trying fish while in Istanbul. Being so close to the Mediterranean Sea the fish was so fresh. Grilled to perfection. Along with the fish came a few different sides with tons of flavouring and spice.

Azeli Oteli Restaurant

This restaurant was a few minutes walk from the Hagia Sophia Museum and Topkapi Palace. Loved the menu options and the quaint patio area, with a cool breeze. We got to enjoy patio weather and delicious food.

Sultan Cafe and Restaurant

A few of the evenings we went for a little dessert and Turkish tea. We ordered the traditional Turkish dessert Baklava, that was so sweet and savoury. It melted as soon as you put in your mouth, very filling.

Mira Cafe and Restaurant

Another day and another fish, we loved that the fish was caught daily. Fresh fish, and table overtop of the hill with a great view. We just couldn't say no. I'm a huge fan of fish in case you didn't know.

Sultans Cafe & Restaurant  

I highly recommend the fresh orange juice, it was thirst quenching. It's also right next to the Blue Mosque, so you can grab a snack and relax after exploring. Already mentioned before their traditional dessert: Baklava was yummy!

These are just a few of my favourite places we ate while in Istanbul. All the food was delicious, the staff were great and we were usually accompanied to dinner by our feline friends. Hope you enjoyed!

FRENCH BRAID ACTION

I thought the humidity was bad in Canada, but it's nothing compared to the humidity in Istanbul. It was too hot to leave my hair down so after my shower I would put my hair up, most of the time it was in a french braid. This way I gave myself a little glam without having to spending too much time blow drying my hair and styling. I wore a lot of flats, and dresses to compensate for the hot weather. It was comfy, relaxed and made exploring a lot easier.

WANDERLUST NO.1

It was always my motto to travel at least once a year in order to relax, rejuvenate and recharge. Over the past couple of years though this has grown exponentially to which I'm travelling at least two to three times a year, and in some cases even more. I'm not complaining though because travelling is one of my greatest passions. Whether it be for work purposes or pleasure I always make time to enjoy where I'm travelling too.

So I'm introducing a new series called wanderlust, where I share some of my favourite travel quotes and pictures from my adventures. Even with all the ups and downs of travelling such as showing up early to the airport, security lines, travelling long distances, going to an unknown place etc. I've never once regretted my travels. 

Thanks for reading! Have a great start to the week...

Sharing part 2 of my travel diary to Istanbul, Turkey. Looking over these photos as I was preparing this blog posts reminds me of what a great time I had. It hasn't been very long since we've were in Turkey but I'm already missing it so much. We got to discover so much culture, food, people and gain so much knowledge about this amazing country. I was sad to leave and really feel like a left a piece of my heart in Istanbul. I'm looking forward to sharing more of Turkey and everything I've discovered. 

Have a great weekend... Thanks for reading!

SABRI STUDIO: MIAMI COLLECTION

Another collection release that I've been working on for some time. Miami was a beautiful place to visit especially during the dead of winter this year. It was nice to do a getaway, celebrate my friend's impromptu bachelorette party and get in some time at the beach. I loved it so much I wanted to put up a few photos in my home to brighten up the place, especially when I'm feeling gloomy about not being able to travel. It'll brighten up my day, give me some inspiration and let me do what I love. 

I was very picky with these photos and only wanted a small collection for Miami. See below more about the photos and why I've chosen them. For the release of the collection you can take 20% off all three prints until the 25th of August 23:59 EST. Use the code: MIAMI20.

Thanks for reading!

By The Sea, An art print for any lover of the sea. Serene and calming to look at. It brings me peace and relaxation so I can focus on my work. I like to work in silence, and in a secluded space so I'm not bothered, since this isn't always possible this photo gives me peace.

Sand In My Feet, Take yourself to a new destination. I love this photographic art because it let's me escape even when I'm at home. I love giving these as gifts for friend's birthdays. It brightens up your space and mood, especially during winter in Canada. 

Little Havana, Most of Miami was Spanish speaking and visiting Little Havana was no exception. This car I discovered on our adventures was the perfect way to symbolize the beauty of what South Beach Miami has to offer, with so much Spanish speaking culture.
