After two weeks of absence and blog negligence, I'm finally back home and one hundred percent ready to get back on tracks and start blogging again. As much as I enjoyed Italy, I also missed home and our traditions and customs. My first destination was Udine, where I was staying. 12 hour long shopping sprees, two days in a row, in one of the largest shopping centers I have ever seen (and others which are not as big), Citta Fiera, with loads of popular and world known brands, such as Guess, Zara, Calvin Klein Jeans, Sisley, United Colors of Benetton, H&M, etc., left me completely exhausted. These shopping sprees were followed by well deserved breaks in a few seaside cities - Grado, Bibione and Lignano. I wasn't too pleased with the beach and the water in Grado - sand was dirty and water was filled with sea grass, but both Bibione and Lignano left me completely speechless. Seemingly never-ending beaches with thousands of people completely enjoying themselves, crystal-clear water, splashing waves, warm sand in-between the toes, tens of bars by the beach, offering great food, drinks and more importantly, amazing music. During the day, the bars are for everyone, but as soon as the night starts to fall, music gets louder, hundreds of young guys and girls go out and have fun and the bars turn into nightclubs. On my way back to Udine, I visited Palmanova Outlet Village, also with almost a hundred amazing shops, with super affordable clothes. Some of the shops are Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein Jeans, United Colors of Benetton, Gap, Moschino. This was probably the biggest shopping spree I've ever done, and I can't wait to show you guys everything. Anyway, I snapped a few photos everywhere I went to and I'm going to share some of them.

This is the place I visit every time I go to Italy. I never leave empty-handed, because the shopping offer is really great
Stunning Bibione, which really left me speechless, and a little bit of me. I didn't really have time to take photos of my outfits (plus, the temperature was always above 35 degrees, so they were not worthy of being photographed).
