10 Best Alarm Clock (New Year Resolution)

Hello everyone and Happy new year! I hope you had a lovely start, I disappeared a bit from social media and the blog, as I was spending some lovely time both in Ireland and Italy. It’s been one of the longest Xmas holidays I had in ages and I really enjoyed that!

This year resolution will be just one, and I’ll have to try and stick to it: switch off from the phone a bit more (travelling to a place without a good internet connection of wifi made me realize how addicted I am to it…). So as soon as we got home my lovely husband suggested starting by keeping the phones away from the bedroom and getting an old style Alarm Clock.

Now that might sound funny but it’s hard to still find alarm clocks in shops as everyone is using mobiles phones, and especially to find nice design ones…. but with a little research here’s my top 10 alarm clock list:

“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.
