Winter just started in Amsterdam, but it feels like summer left us ages ago already. This makes me go back to some amazing memories of this summer. One of the best travels (if not the best) was definitely my trip to Ibiza last September with Gin Mare and a group of fellow Dutch influencers.

You can imagine how excited I was when this premium Mediterranean gin brand invited me to spend three days in Ibiza. We stayed at Vila Mare which was absolutely gorgeous with the most breathtaking sea view. Gin Mare is all about the Mediterranean spirit so the main idea of this trip was to enjoy the easy going Mediterranean lifestyle. And sure we did!

You know I am Italian, so this type of summer days, enjoying the sun, the good food and the slow life path in good company are not new to me 😉

I loved all the activities the Gin Mare team organised for us. My absolute favourite was doing yoga by the infinity pool. It was absolutely amazing and relaxing! Can you think of a better place for yoga other than outside in Ibiza with a breathtaking view?

The entire trip was in the sign of delicious food and great drinks, which are very characteristic for the Ibiza’s lifestyle. The botanical flavour of Gin Mare perfectly highlighted the taste of the Mediterranean food, a must to try!!

On the second day, Gin Mare organized an amazing workshop that was happening by the pool. How cool, right? Gin is my favorite drink so I was super excited to learn how to prepare various cocktails with a little food pairing. My absolute winner was Gin Mare with oysters. A perfect combo of refreshing Mediterranean flavours!

After this fun workshop we had dinner at fancy HEART Ibiza with the Gin Mare‘s team. Fantastic food and entertainment made it an amazing evening!!

The rest of the time we spent relaxing by the incredible pool and having breath taking views of the sea. We had loads of fun with the girls and I couldn’t wish to be with a better squad.

Thank you Gin Mare for a dream trip! Till next summer..

OtterBox organised an outstanding trip for us. We stayed in Malaga and road tripped for four days through Andalusia soaking up all the magical vibes that the South of Spain has to offer.

For my job nothing is more important than my phone and OtterBox had it protected all day every day! We had a whole spread of phone cases we could pick each morning! Thanks to OtterBox my phone is always safe, making sure I can always capture and share the best images with you and stay connected at all times! My favourite is their ‘Clear Collection’ and the case I am always using now is the ‘Stardust’.

I couldn’t wait to finally sit and write this post to show you where we stayed in Malaga, our itinerary, what OtterBox organised for us and, of course, what I wore during the trip!


We stayed just outside Malaga at Rancho del Ingles. This place is truly a hidden gem. If you visit Malaga it’s a must stay! In fact, I really look forward to go back with Emma and Menno one day.. I had a big crush on this B&B! It’s owned by a lovely couple who really made sure we all had a great time. They have an amazing eye for details and every corner was a shot occasion! I could have easily been spending the whole of the trip chilling in their garden by the pool, with a magical view overlooking the Spanish hills. But we had to much to do and experience..

COLLAGE 2017/11/01

We explored the city centre of Malaga where the colours are breathtaking and each little street has a cute spot to offer. We ended the day having mojitos and tapas overlooking the sunset from a rooftop bar. It was the perfect occasion to get to know everyone while enjoying the view!


On the second day we spent the morning in Frigiliana. It’s the cutest little town with a greek look, white houses, blue details and steps.. Loads of steps! If you visit Andalusia I strongly recommend to go and take the time to explore it and enjoy each little corner. It’s seriously too cute!


When I thought Frigiliana would have been already a blast for the day, then I had to rethink. OtterBox seriously wanted to spoil us this time and organised a boat trip for the whole afternoon! We just chilled with music and some bubbles and it was my favourite time! I just love being on a boat!


On the third day we were up early and drove a couple of hours to visit Alhambra and Granada. If you visit Andalusia my tip is to rent a car so you can really make the most of it! I think it would really be a shame to just stay in the same city for the whole holiday.. this region has so much to offer and so many beautiful places to visit! Alhambra was incredibly busy and I strongly advise to go very early in the morning to avoid the big groups. Besides the million of tourists this is the most beautiful garden I’ve ever seen. Finally we had lunch in Granada city centre and spent the afternoon wondering the city and the local markets.


With 16 influencers, you can only imagine the amount of pictures which were taken! We seriously had a lot of fun and an incredible stay in Malaga. OtterBox really spoiled us and made our stay one of the best weekend of this summer and surprise surprise.. nobody’s phone crashed!! 😉 Content is safe!!.. Good news is, you can see even more pictures of our trip if you check out the #OtterboxOoO on Instagram!
