andiamo in vacanza





A. and I are heading on vacanza for 3 weeks to this little island far far away from modern life.
My BFF and her main man are joining us all the way from San Fran, yowza! talk about trains, planes and automobiles! 3 flights, overnightstay followed by a hydro boat ride to the little oasis, where we will be waiting on the dock (see photo above) to greet them.
Can't wait to swim in the sea, eat fresh picked figs every morning (see above), devour delish polipo (octopus) for lunch and dinner (i'm obessed) and just be........

art deco inspiration



was out and about in Milano the other night with A. who brought me to a little art deco gem of a restaurant called, Amici Del Liberty. Delish!
My little take away, was not a doggie bag, (which by the way doesn't exist in Italy, thank god) but this beautiful, art deco cutout business card made of super thin metal.
Um, divine? so was the prosecco served in vintage champagne glasses
