They were very kind to apologize to all their fans on their website for the delay in sending out the little boxes.

1. Cowshed|Cowslip Soothing Hand Cream – Softens hands with a combination of essential oils that are from oranges and mint.

2. Deborah Milano|Prét à Porter – Limited edition nail polish that comes in 60 fashionable shades.

Dolce & Gabbana | Bouquet COLOUR EXPLOSION

As I was browsing the April issue of Elle Italia, I came across the new Dolce & Gabbana advert for their spring make up collection with Felicity Jones. The colors truly captivated me and I thought, ” I have to share this with everyone.” They could have not chosen a better name for this collection, Bouquet. I love how the colors are a combination of pastels, brights and intense colors.

It screams, ” Welcome Home Spring!”

Ballerina Mania

Today was a Ballerina day!!

The weather just keeps getting more and more beautiful in Rome. I say it is time to put away those knee high boots that kept your feet warm during those cold and freezing months, and put on some comfy ballerinas!

I got these at H&M, very, very comfy. 🙂

 After work today I headed over to Cola di Rienzo which is near the Vatican. There is a store in that area by the name of Danielle that I have been buying from since high school. Actually there are about 3 in that area. They use very good quality materials to make their shoes. And today the store was filled with so many different types of ballerinas! They had  ballerinas available in different textures, colors, and patterns!

I especially love these glitter ones!!! Fabulous!

Enjoy Spring by getting comfy and stylish with a pair of ballerinas!!

Have a wondeful and beautiful day!

Italian Trends | Céline Sunglasses

The weather in Rome is getting much warmer and the sun is shining. Especially today since it is the first day of Spring!!

Today I had to go out today for lunch to grab some food and as I was walking back to work from Via Nazionale, I passed by a sunglasses store that carries lots of goodies. They had on display Céline sunglasses and I had to take some pictures because they really caught my eye. I love their retro, vintage feel. You might of noticed that lately I am having a bit of a sunglasses obsession…. 🙂 How can you not want to dive into a pair of edgy sunglasses!!! 😉
