At the lake
Where did Spring end up? ..please tell me some sunshines reached you because here it’s quite cloudy :( As you might remember we thought it would be great to enjoy our family’s villa near the Lago di Garda and relax there for a week.. apparently the weather man had other plans for us. What bothers me most is that I promised to Rosa and Indiana they could play for hours in the...
Hello loves hope you are all doing good! I just had the most delicious lunch and thought to share it with you :) In Milan is incredibily hot and I could easily go through the day by only eating italian gelato but I don’t think that’s a good advice. So I got back to my favorite fresh and light salad! This is by far the most versatile meal for summer time and it takes only seconds...
Good morning ♥ Fancy a quick deliciously healthy smoothie? Hands down this is by far the best smoothie to start the day..just look at it! It’s proved that colour in food does miracles for our mood and this is a pleasure for eyes and soul! To create the Green layer I used: 1 Banana 1/2 Mango 1 handful of baby spinach Put the ingredients in your blender and until smooth. Pour into...
Aprile dolce dormire
..it’s an Italian idiom to describe the lazy mornings we all have in Spring! Apparently not only humans have days like these ;) Today is really hot in Milan and coffee doesn’t make it beter, I guess it’s time to switch it with fresh homemade smoothies, which I love! What about you, how do you struggle the reaaaly hot days? Now it’s time to get ready, I have a shopping...
Good Morning! ..my fingers are playing again on the keyboard and it feels so great after all this time I’ve been away from the blog. I’ve missed all this so much and I’ve missed YOU ma belle :) I can’t believe how quickly time flies by and I have to catch up with you on so much after all. This has been a really busy time for me and no time was left for blogging or fun...
Hi humans, …as you may guess mamma is away and we took the control of the situation. Of course is not us typing (our little paws do not help) but our nanny F. is helping us out, I guess she has no choice. Our mum loves us so much… every now and then she travels to different countries to find the best cat cookies for us! Of course we miss her a lot but we know she does it for a noble...
Mama I missed the plane..
..argghhh… I pretty much look like a zombie right now! This morning I arrived at the airport with a delay of only 10min. which were enough to make me miss my flight.. can you believe it, just 10min?! So now, here I am waiting for the next available flight of the 18:50..pfff. Not only I had to spent the entire day in Milan but I also had to pay double ticket, which obviously cost double its...
What better way to wish you “Happy Women’s Day” than with an amazing perfume! The lucky lady is Angela!!! I already email-ed you sweetie so soon this bad boy will be with you :) Thank you all for your wishes and see you soon for the next giveaway.
Hey sweets! We are back in Milan after our weekend in Florence and I have been in a kind of a hibernation for the last 2 days..we mostly stayed in our hotel room since we’ve already visited the attraction of the centre so it was a great way to celebrate my birth day and get some relax in one of the most beautiful cities of Europe! Firenze is so rich of history and offers an amount of things to...
Belle D'Opium YSL.
Hello best readers! Today is my Birthday and I want to celebrate it also with you ..so time for a little something to cheer you up. One of my favourites perfums by Yves Saint Laurent, Belle D’opium. A very rich and intense fragance which never dissapoints. I have to admit I would love to have it just for its amazing bottle, great design. It’s so simple to make this babe yours: Subscibe...
Hello my dears, Those of you who follow me on Instagram already know I took a train this afternoon! I love traveling by train, it’s so romantic..after all I am quite a vintage soul. …but let’s start from the beginning of this trip :) Tommorow is an important day to me, it’s my Birthday(!) and my lovely husband decided to surprise me with a mini vacation. He told me to...
I am not a fan of footbal but when you get invited in the main tribune of the San Siro stadium it’s impossible to say no.. plus is the semifinal of Champions League! We are also guests of the Champions Club which is hosting an exclusive dinner before the match..who knows maybe Mr. Berlusconi is gonna be there too ;) (he owns Milan so..). Milan vs. Barcelona, can’t immagine what’s gonna happen...
“What do I wear in bed? Just a few drops of Chanel” ..well not exactly but pretty much like that! I am sure every single one of you, after nosing this little miracle in a bottle, close your eyes and let the memories carrie you away. One of my favourite scents, so classic and yet contemporaneous. I was so pleased when I found this Purse Spray version. It slips in my everyday bag and in my travel...
Tea at Harrods.
Good morning loves, The blog has been quite silent lately and I apologize for that but I’ve been so busy lately taking planes and no time left for fun :) I still have to show you some pics from London and since I am that little sucker when it comes to shopping, we spent an entire day in Harrods.. of course I allowed a pause to my poor husband and we enjoyed a cup of tea at their Tea Room. ...
Love is in... my plate!
Good morning loves, I got back in Milan just in time for Valentine’s day and a great breakfast was waiting for me! I love big breakfasts even if I never manage to eat all the goodies ;) Ouef à la coque is one of my faves with toasted bread and sliced avocados (I prefer them smashed)..and when I found this lovely “Le Petit Dejeuner” breakfast set I was extremely happy! This...
Hello ladies, It’s been a while since our last chat but I had to visit my family and had no time for the blog. It’s always good to take a little break every now and then, but I already miss your comments :) Today is a sunny day and I’m just being lazy around! Hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be back in Milan and from there I’ll have to catch a few more...
Finally back home! I’m so exhausted after our trip in London, we walked that much… mostly for shopping as we’ve already seen most of the city in the past. London is perfect for shopping and food (I’ll show some of my faves restaurants later) and we got the best of both of it! We spent an entire day in Harrods only, love that place.. We also visited Carnaby Street...
Hey darlings, I am so tired right now, I just had dinner and I probably ordered way too much food! My husband had an important business dinner and I prefered to stay in and have room service instead. I feel so full right now.. I started with a Butternut squash & pumpkin seeds soup..deliciously warm! ..had some spinach & ricotta tortellini with mozzarella and focaccia garlic bread.. Despite...
Good Morning Loves! For the next 5 days I’m gonna be a Londoner, weeeh! I love this amazing city and several months have passed since my last visit. My husband has a few meetings here so I joined him for some shopping! Harrods, Selfridges here I come… :) We just arrived in the Hotel and now I’m waiting for a hot cup of tea at the bar! ...
Hey humans! It’s been a while since our last chat so we though to pop in and say hello! Mamma and papa are packing their suitcases, mamma says that tomorrow morning they have to go out and buy us some more cookies but we are not sure why she has to take a suitcase (?)..ohh, maybe she’s gonna take us a lot of it..nahhh, we are cats not silly dogs;) Speaking of which.. we are...
Sigma Face Brushes.
The right brushes help us create the perfect make up and play with more looks! I have tried many make up brushes and so far my absolutely favorites are the Sigma Brushes. I did a little guide with the ones I use the most: FOUNDATION: When I use a thick foundation I prefer to apply it with the F80 Brush which is really dense and offers a...
Let it snow ..more often!
Good evening all, How is your Sunday so far? In Milan we had a snowy weekend but that didn’t stop us from going shopping, we are actually still decorating our appartement in Milan and there is a lot to do so we spent our Saturday visiting furniture stores, so exhausting.. With all that snow coming down we had frequent pit stops in between the boutiques. We stopped at Nespresso for some...
Hey sweets! I’m so happy sun is back in Milan, it really changes my mood :) Yesterday we went for some shopping with my husband and my feet still hurts but it was well worth it! Milan is perfect for shopping, so many boutiques and little stores, plus there was not as many people as during weekends, love it.. we scored some really great stuff! I was looking for a dark pair of jeans so we...
On the search..
Good morning lovelies The sky outside is so grey, so I’m sitting here with my hazelnut coffee and a home decor magazine. I’m looking for a wine dispenser (a huge one) and I can’t find anything I like.My husband loves wine and he keeps adding new bottles every week but in our appartement in Milan we don’t have a proper placement for all those bottles, not yet at least. Most...
Hey loves, I know you’ll probably hate me for making 2 food posts in a Sunday but I couldn’t not share this delicacy I’m enjoying right now..We spent the day shopping outdoor and now that we are home we where both craving for something sweet.. We had strawberries, bananas and chocolate so we decided for a Fondue!mmm.. I’m enjoying every single bite! I wish I could share...
I’m still in a glycemic coma after yesterday’s cheesecake at California Bakery :) It’s known that Americans do it better when it comes to huge, deliciously fat cakes and we are blessed to have a little corner of that near our home! Yesterday we got up really late in the morning and decided to have a brunch there..We started with a selection of cereal bread and bagels served with...
Time to smile...
Good morning loves! There is no sweeter sound that the morning doorbell melody, nothing beats postman’s morning call! I’m not sure what else makes me that happy in the morning.. Since my last (painful) visit to the dentist I’m trying to take even more care of my teeth. My dentist told me that the electric toothbrush are the best so after a proper research I got this...
Hey beauties! I just received a little box I’m so excited about! Months ago I got curious to try the famous Sigma Brushes and I decided to order some and give them a try..and I did the right thing :) I’ve always used the Mac brushes but I needed some extra for the everyday make up so I didn’t have to wash them that often. Since I wasn’t sure if they were good enough I just...
Look who's back..
Good morning ..or maybe good evening! I’ve totally lost the sense of time and as you may have noticed I’ve been away from the blog for a few days. There is an explanation though.. Last week I had a tremendous pain in my mouth, one of my teeth started bothering me and I had no idea why. The first day I was patient and did nothing, thinking it will pass away. The second day I thought I...

Light my fire..
Hey everyone, I’m having such a good time with my family on this amazing island! Love the Christmas time in Crete, there are almost 20°C. degrees during the day and in the late evening it gets a little cooler.
