bike with style

My A. is a bicycle guy. Obsessed with bikes. Pretty much rides when ever, where ever, night and day. I'm the wife obsessed with safety, particularly, in a city where cars drive as if they're racing in the Italian Grand Prix. So, I have to admit, I was over the moon when he finally purchased a bike helmet from Yakkay. I tell ya, this little company, designing fashionable bike helmets was divine intervention.
I think I can bear to wear my dorky helmet for a little while longer but soon hope to upgrade to this one

his & hers

While I'm not a fan of his and her beds (too old fashion), I do give a big thumbs up for the his and her bathrooms. Sure I could survive sharing one but we're lucky enough to each have our very own (teeny tiny) his and her bathrooms, side by side, but no where near as grand and luxurious as the ones shown in the film, The Arrangement, (see picture above)
As hubby and wife we pretty much share everything but when it comes to the powder room we're spoiled with our own private space.
Although sometimes I turn to A. and ask "way not make one BIG bathroom instead of these teeny tiny no space his and her ones" I guess in my heart, I'd rather share everything.

(p.s. great film by the way, worth the watch)

left over spring

Feeling a bit under the weather today with a strange summer cold, weird, I know. It's August, who gets colds in August? I do. Go figure, I blame it the many planes I have been on recently.
anyway, I'm resting my stuffy head but I thought I'd share this wisteria blossom just outside our house.
Feels like a little milano spring held on and braved the hot hot summer
