Living in a big city like London is great, but shopping in the city centre can be a bit overwhelming (especially when you’re are 9 months preggy) so my solution is always to look at online sites…and even if they’ll arrive a bit late, I’m sure that who’ll receive will appreciate it.

Happy Creative 2017

Happy New Year! I love the calm after the Christmas storm that January normally brings. This month is for me always the longest, but also the one full of brand new ideas, motivations, excitement and of course resolutions.

My main goal this year (among the others..) is to BE MORE CREATIVE:, share more inspirations here on the blog, discover new beautiful things, takes more photos (I am slowly getting back into my camera, and I’m loving it).

I spent a lovely Christmas back to Italy and then I went Paris for New Year’s Eve. Here’s a few pictures of my little break there, Paris is always beautiful, even under a cold and thick fog.

 

Have you got any new year’s resolutions?

“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.
