Cupcake Istanbul Weekend * Cupcake Istanbul Haftasonu

During Christmas weekend, my hubby and I were in Istanbul.
Our Americans friends were in town so we had a great time in Istanbul.
This post is kind of overdue but here are snapshots from our weekend.
Istanbul welcomed us with rain ;)

Noel arifesinde, Sevgili ile Istanbuldaydik.
Istanbula tatile gelen Amerikali arkadaslarimizla harika vakit gecirdik.
Araya baska seyler girince, bu yazi biraz gecikmeli oldu ama iste ozetler.
Istanbul bizi harika bir yagmurla karsiladi ;)

The weather was not so great. It was rain mixed with snow.
But we did not chnage any plans.
We had lunch at the Kitchenette in Taksim.
There, I met with one of my followers Gulcancoo, the lovely sister of Lulucumm ;)
Next time, Lulucumm will also join us. Right ?

Ama biz yine de planlarimiza sadik kaldik.
Taksimdeki Kitchenette`de ogle yemegi yedik.
Ve orada takipcim Gulcancoo - Lulucumm`un sevgili kardesi- ile bulustuk ;)
Gelecek sefer, Lulucumm da bize katilacak. Degil mi ?
