My Travel Wishlist 2017

I’ve been looking for a travel bag for a long time, but I’ve been struggling to find the right now. Today I stumbled upon MAHI’s Armada Duffle Bag  (here) and as my birthday was back in June I’m adding it to my personal travel wish list. I just can’t wait to lay my hands on it, and then take it along with me to make some memories around the world. As MAHI gives you an  option for having your initials on it – I will be definitely having an AJ on it. It’s also big enough to fit some of  Sofia’s belonging, so that I will no longer have to carry two hand luggages. I‘m a little bit sick and tired of carrying...
   

One Year Since We Became Each Other’s ‘Life’

You are looking at the last photo we took before we left Copenhagen, the city where we met. I spent 2 years in Denmark during which I went through a time of depression, self-reflection, grief, fell in love, moved in with Philip two weeks after we met, got pregnant 3 month after, got proposed on the 7/3, became a wife, and then the mom of Sofia-Malou. It was hell of a stay!Today is exactly one year since I said ‘Yes’ and proudly took Philip’s last name. We’ve been through a lot since then and moving to another country is the least that’s happened to us. But the bottom line is that we are still together and happier than ever. We have...

Dining out With Our Baby at Ernie Hemingway

Philip and I are laid back parents. We dine out every time we get the chance, and Varna was no exception. We were visiting different restaurants every day, but the one that won our hearts was Ernie Hemingway with a terrace overlooking the sea and pretty marvellous interior.   That’s us when we we’re out. Philip behind the camera, me having a glass of wine, and Sofia taking a quick nap before she found out that we are out and about…you know, she has that duty to win the hearts of everyone around.  We went for the Bulgarian way, splurging on seafood and other tasty bits.. The calamari and salmon tartar were the definite winners! Their texture and taste were divine! And that’s Philip with his...
   

My Face Essentials For The Beach

I skipped sunbathing last year, too afraid to expose my bump to the sun. I guess it was exactly when Sofia-Malou was still in my belly that it hit me that spending too much time in the sun wasn’t at all healthy for  the skin (and my little one). It’s common sense, but I needed to have someone else to care about to actually stop spending hours under the sun. Also, I have a blemish-prone skin, which means that every time I squeeze a spot, it’s very likely that a dark spot will appear in its place. If you have the same problem, you are probably aware that sun can only worsen the situation. Exactly because of that I’ve begun applying sun protect...

Getting Summer Ready with Marc Jacobs and Women’secret

Our mini vacation is going pretty fantastic. Philip and I are already discussing our next adventure and we’re considering visiting Portugal next. We’ve never been there and I have always wanted to explore Lisbon and its beautiful beaches (and taste its marvellous food!). I skipped going to the seaside when I was pregnant and I was way too busy setting down when I first moved to Denmark – hence my craving for travel! I have started stocking up on those summer essentials and I find myself ordering bikini and sunglasses all the time! But hey, I need them, right? My latest discovery is the website smartbuyglasses.com  where I found that 70s vibes round pink (duh!) sunglasses by Marc Jacobs . You...

Ready for a mini getaway after a busy month

One of the presents I got for my 27th birthday (yep..) was a ‘family vacation’ to Varna. Philip keeps repeating that – he is turning into the stereotype of a ‘daddy’ – which is also kinda cute.Georgia Rose Fifillotte (here) or Guess Plasmia 5 (here)  // ASOS Suede Minimal Backpack (here) / White Feather Top (here) But after a month of doing everything and nothing – meaning running errands, sorting out the moving boxes…without really having enough time to invest in my blog and social media (sorry, for my absence), I’m buzzing to have a few days off from reality. I haven’t been to the Bulgarian seaside for a long time and we’re going exactly there – to Graffit Gallery Hotel...
   

Listed In ‘The Top 40 Scandinavian Fashion Blogs and Websites on the Web’

Letters to A. has been listed as one of the ‘Top 40 Scandinavian Fashion Blogs and Websites on the Web’ (feedspot.com). To celebrate the pretty awesome news, I’m sharing with you the outfit I wore at my friend’s wedding that Philip and I attended on Saturday. I went for a pair of high-waisted lemony culottes, that surprisingly made me look much taller (win!), Audrey Hepburn inspired pumps, and a frill one shoulder crop top. It was Philip’s first Bulgarian wedding and now he’s much more prepared for what’s gonna happen at our wedding next year. Pants by Mid Length Wide Leg Shorts Zara (here) // Filippa K (here) or Culottes boohoo.com (here)// Shoes by & Other Stories (here) , alternative by Paper...

My Postpartum Body

Before I got pregnant I thought I was leading a healthy lifestyle. In reality I was eating a low-carbs diet,  exercising a little bit too much and being way too conscious about the foods I was eating. The thing is – obsessing over what you eat and being a health-freak doesn’t really make you a  healthy living being. But it wasn’t until I conceived that I finally got in terms with that that and began to really care for my body and treat it with respect. I learned that eating less is far more worse than eating small portions but often. I grasped that exercising a few times a week is enough and there is no need for me to hit the gym every...

Happy Children’s Day, Sofia-Malou!

You’re a little bit over 8 months, Sofia. And quite frankly, that’s the biggest milestone you’ve reached so far. We’ve been inseparable since the day you came into my life. And that’s exactly the reason why I often fail to notice the extent to which you’re changing every single day. But here you are, only a few months away from turning 1 and already giving me kisses, copying different sounds and standing up all by yourself. You’re also kinda crawling, something I thought you’d skip and go straight to walking. The first time you gave it a go was a few days ago, when I was performing the Downward dog. You did almost the same in your attempt to get on...
   

I’m From The 90s.

 No, I wasn’t born in the 80s. I’m from the 90s… born only a few months after the collapse of the Berlin wall. I was raised in Sofia, Bulgaria, a country that the Communist Bloc rigorously chew and spit with indifference, leaving us, the children of change, dazed and confused… with a sense of questionable belonging to ‘strong roots’ we had no memory of. Since an early age I was dreaming to leave Bulgaria and make a life for myself abroad. I enrolled to study in the UK. I travelled. I was exploring the West… until I met Philip. A boy born and bred in the the Kingdom of Denmark. A boy that used to splurge on McDonalds and watch the...

On the Way to Our New Adventure!

Here we are – all ready to roll. Philip has left behind his working uniform and we are going for the city chic look. Now I’m all in for converting him into a part-time fashion blogger. Well, good luck with that. hehe Her VERO Moda Linen Trousers (here) // Pumps by & Other Stories (here) // Ruffle Crop Top by Club L (here) // Bag by Leo Wulff (here) // Watch by Boom Watches (here) // Him Shirt by Tommy Hilfiger (here) // Lobby Trousers by Hope (here) or G-Star Pharrell Williams (here) // Belt by Tommy Hilfiger (here) The only problem with starting over is that despite all the blissful expectations we have for the future, the road that leads to it is...

Inspiration is ‘You’

The sun decided to pay us a visit while we were strolling down the streets of Århus! One of the most beautiful cities in Denmark, if you ask ME, which any proud Copenhagen-er (I did not just say that) would immediately argue against. But hey, I’m not Danish so I don’t really have a deep sense of belonging to The City. But the thing is – Århus inspired me. I could definitely see myself waking up here, taking long walks with Sofia, observing the people, writing at cosy cafes, and enjoying the beautiful scenery and cosy vibes. And yes, I do have a feeling that one day we will own a flat exactly here.White Shirt by Zara, alternative by D Brand (here)...
