Italian Paradise.....Outfit #2

The weather was incredible as you would expect, lazy days at the beach a LOT of eating we are Italian after all. This outfit was worn when we went to a restaurant my cousin works at. The outfit was photographed by my beautiful mama which explains the poses and laughter! She was fab....she made me use a Vespa as a prop!

What To Pack In Your Summer Handbag

I don't know about you, but I do change my bag season to season and change what I have in these bags. In winter its about gloves, dark berry lipsticks and tissues! When it comes to summer I am all about bright lipsticks, refreshing body mists and sweet exotic fragrances.

One essential for my summer bag is a cooling spray, one of my favourites has to be the Vichy Thermal Spa Water Spray, it instantly cools whilst leaving your skin hydrated.

Secondly my favourite summer lipsticks, I adore MAC lipsticks and happen to have the following in my summer bag

Girl About Town
Show Orchid
Flat Out Fabulous

An essential we all need to be using is suncream, check whether your foundation has SPF, which is vital to reduce the ageing process. I would always have an SPF of at least 20 whilst in the uk but if the temperature gets super hot its at least 30 for me and 50 for the children. One of my favourite suncreams has to be Malibu, the scent is like a tropical paradise!





Another essential has to be a beautiful exotic fragrance to spritz as you go along your day. L'Occitane have produced a range of Eau De Toilette for both men and women that will whisk you off to the Mediterranean, with notes of Lavender, Rose, Cherry Blossom, Verbena and Peony, My favourite fragrance is Rose, I absolutely love it and this glamourous fragrance will have you smelling beautiful in a flash.

Italian Paradise....Outfit inspiration

I'm back, after 4 months I have finally come back!! I have had baby number two which has not been particularly easy so had to drop the blogging for a while to gather myself. Hope you all understand, it isn't easy juggling life is it! So here is a look at me going back "Home" to Ischia in Italy for a couple of weeks! A little peek into some of my outfits, I will do this across a few posts....here is outfit one!


Look at this view from one of my Uncles houses!! This place is otherwise known as a "cave" but its amazing, he built what I can only describe as a massive living room within a mountain! With a big kitchen and a table to feed the 5000! We have many parties and family gatherings here with views like this.
