“Milano – Storia di una rinascita is a beautiful book with black and white photos from 1943 -1953: a reportage from the destruction caused by the II World War, to the rebirth of the City. It’s the catalog of the exhibition at Palazzo Morando (Via Sant’Andrea, 6 – 20123 Milano). Highly recommended if you’re around!!!

The cashmere blanket is gonna be perfect for the cold winter London days, while the Menu Salt and Pepper grinder have been on my wish list for a long long time, I think they will be a nice addition to my kitchen.

I have to say that I don’t wear jewellery very often, but I love geometric and unusual ones. On my last trip to NYC I discovered the brand Aglaia Jewelry  and it was love at first sight!
