I’ve just tasted the best gelato in town, Cioccolatilaliani! I’ve only tried gelato a couple of times so my words aren’t as credible as a gelato connoisseur’s, but this one will definitely stay within my top five. I am a sucker for rose-flavored sweets: macarons, milk tea, gelato, cookies, cake, and wine (a little different aha). This particular place had just that. Rose Ciocollato flavor!! AHHHHHHH. Some may judge my reaction to be a bit over-the-top, but SERIOUSLY. They put white/milk/dark chocolate in your cone then topped a generous amount of your flavor for 2.5 euros!
An average gelato costs around 2 euros, with 1.5 being cheap and 3 being pretty pricey. This lived up to its cost. Creamy and fragrant, bits of a white chocolate bar mixed in for texture, and a waffle cookie as our “spoon”. (Is that descriptive enough? ;D ahahhaa) This gelateria is near LUSH, Terranova, and the affordable shopping street near Duomo.
Buono. Just BUONO.
Acquario Civico Milano
After a nice 3 mile run, warm shower (finally), skype with Christina, and a big burger near Navigli called Trita, we went to the AQUARIUM! The burger was a 200 gram juicy deliciousness for 6.5 euro +75 for each topping. DELISH. I tried the poppyseed bun and a grilled eggplant! I’ve never had a burger like this before ❤
It’s the first aquarium in Europe built in 1904. It’s nothing spectacular, but would be a great spot for locals to take their children(hence the flooding amount of families). We felt like locals today ;D
We saw Dory from Nemo, jelly fish, big fish, small fish, sea urchins, anemones, and everything!
Cute. Just CUTE.
I fumble over fashion, style, and clothing all the time(I sometimes wonder why I’m in Milan). I remember in elementary school I told people I wanted to be a fashion designer and how I loved Coco Chanel. HA. Us girlies headed to the affordable street for stores like Bershka and Zara. I wanted to buy everything but willed myself to a few items. Shopping with Rebecca and Amanda was fun because they like to take their time looking around just like I do! I wasn’t making either of them wait.
I bought some clothes and realized I need to buy a thick coat for winter soon. (I’m not ready for winter!!) What do people in Milan wear!?!?!
I also returned to the Lush store to replace the hair mask I couldn’t open. The lady working there opened my impossible-to-open balm without dripping a sweat and gave me a new one. lol. Now I can have lucious Lush hair ❤ aha. Thank you lush lady!
