It’s a date night with my man! We went to a thai restaurant – Thai Orchidee, Bardolino. Love the place it’s wild, natural with romantic set up. PERFECT for our date night!

I wore a simple electric blue lycra jumpsuit. Jumpsuit, they are one of the difficult fashion pieces to wear, yet designers are adamant in recreating them in different silhouettes, colours, textures and patterns, season after season. The jumpsuit just won’t go away. The trick to pulling off the jumpsuit is all about the cut of the piece, as well as how you accessorize it.

E ‘una ‘date night’ con il mio uomo! Siamo andati in un ristorante tailandese Thai Orchidee, Bardolino. Mi piace il posto è selvaggio, naturale con romantica ambiente. PERFETTO per la date night!

Ho indossato una semplice tuta di lycra blu elettrico. Tuta intera, sono uno dei pezzi di moda difficili da indossare, ma i progettisti sono irremovibili nel loro ricreando in diverse sagome, colori, texture e modelli, stagione dopo stagione. La tuta proprio non se ne andrà. Il trucco per tirare fuori la tuta è interamente circa il taglio del pezzo, così come come si accessorize esso.

Desenzano

Desenzano

Peschiera del Garda

On our way to Desenzano we made a quick stop at Peschiera del Garda

Tuesday afternoon me and my new partner in crime, Katia decided to explore Desenzano town for some retail therapy – as what she said. It was a hot day so we left the house a little bit later in the afternoon. We drove along the lakeside so our view just breathtakingly beautiful! I felt blessed to live in one of the most beautiful area in Italy.

Once we got to Desenzano, both of us were so excited like small children just looking at the shops. Desenzano is a popular holiday destination. It attracts myriads of tourists from all over the world owing to its beautiful view of the Alps from the southern shore of Lake Garda. This is the heart of nightlife of Lake Garda area, with several discos and pubs. At the heart of the town is a series of interconnected piazza that has numerous open-air cafés, various shops, gelateria (ice-cream parlours) and bars. The ambience totally different if you compare with Lake Garda that belong to Verona region (eastern side). Here, it’s lively, fun, chic and they have an interesting varity of shops.

While walking and checking out the shop windows, I came across this little book shop and saw a pop-up handbags book on display. Went in and asked the lady about the book, pointing at the direction of the window display ‘Hi! Can I have a look at that book? The one with the pop-up handbags,’ with my excitement child tone. She went to take the book. OMG!!!! I have to own this book – the first thing came up to my mind. Checked the price and it’s only EUR20.00!!!!!! Took out my wallet and paid the lady. I felt like winning the lottery. I know it sound silly especially to my man. If he were around I will get a kick on my bum. hahaha… He will never ever understand me when come to things like this. I get excited over small things like…. price tag below EUR20 and SALE sign. Again… I’m just a woman, what more can i say?! :p

We continued walking around the town and make few stops at some of the cool shops. By now most of the shops were closing down. We got what we wanted, took more photos and we settled down at one of the pizzeria for dinner looking over the lake. Pizza was good and most of all my companion for that evening was the highlight of my day. Oh and not to forget my ‘Bags to Love’ purchased! 😉

Martedì pomeriggio io e il mio nuovo partner nel crimine, Katia ha deciso di esplorare città di Desenzano per una terapia al dettaglio – come quello che ha detto. E ‘stata una giornata calda così abbiamo lasciato la casa un po’ più tardi nel pomeriggio. Abbiamo guidato lungo il lago quindi la nostra vista semplicemente mozzafiato! Mi sentivo fortunata a vivere in una delle zone più belle d’Italia.

Una volta arrivati ​​a Desenzano, sia di noi erano i pidocchi così eccitati bambini piccoli solo guardando i negozi. Desenzano è una popolare meta turistica. Essa attira miriadi di turisti provenienti da tutto il mondo per la sua splendida vista sulle Alpi dalla riva meridionale del Lago di Garda. Questo è il cuore della vita notturna della zona del Lago di Garda, con diverse discoteche e pub. Nel cuore della città, è una serie di piazza interconnessa che ha numerosi caffè all’aperto, negozi vari, gelateria (gelaterie) e bar. L’ambiente totalmente diverso se si confronta con il Lago di Garda che appartengono alla regione di Verona (lato est). Qui, è vivace, divertente, chic e hanno un interessante varieta ‘di negozi.

Mentre a piedi e controllo fuori dalla finestra, mi sono imbattuto in questo piccolo negozio di libri e ho visto una borsa libro pop-up sul display. Entrò e chiese la signora del libro, indicando la direzione della vetrina ‘Hi! Posso dare un’occhiata a quel libro? Quello con le borse di pop-up, ‘con il mio tono infantile eccitazione. Andò a prendere il libro. OMG!! Devo possedere questo libro – la prima cosa è venuto in mente. Controllato il prezzo ed è solo EUR20.00!! Tirò fuori il portafogli e pagato la signora. Mi sentivo come vincere alla lotteria. Lo so che suona stupido soprattutto al mio uomo. Se lui è in giro mi metterò un calcio sul mio culo. hahaha … Egli non potrà mai capirmi quando venire a cose come questa. Mi eccito più piccole cose come …. cartellino del prezzo al di sotto di 20 euro e la vendita segno. Ancora una volta … Sono solo una donna, cos’altro posso dire:?!


Continuammo a camminare in giro per la città e facciamo qualche sosta in alcuni dei negozi fresche. Ormai la maggior parte dei negozi stanno chiudendo abbiamo ottenuto quello che vogliamo, ha preso più foto e ci siamo accomodati in uno dei pizzeria per la cena guardando oltre il lago. Pizza era buona e la maggior parte di tutta la mia compagna per la sera è il momento clou della mia giornata. Oh, e non dimenticare il mio acquisto del Bags to Love! 😉

Plant that we bought at Flover.

Last Friday my neighbour, Katia organized a birthday party for her 5 years old son in the garden of they’re Lake Garda apartment. As I promised to help, I prepared Cous-cous Spicy Green Thai Chicken and vegetables, Seafood Salad and Focaccia with cherry tomatoes.

Started my day as early as 8am, went to the Supermarket to get all the ingredients. Came back and started cooking. It was a hot day, I was sweating like crazy… as what the weather forecast predicted the heat waved came from Africa! Oh dear….

After all the cooking, sweating and getting pissed off with the kittens (as usual they are making a mess!!!) I finally got myself together and put on my party dress and my dancing shoes! I’m ready to PARTY!!!!!

The evening went well even though i don’t know all o the but i made some new friends. The whole evening the guests compliments my food especially the cous-cous. Me and my man had to leave the party a bit early as we had an early start the next day for Regatta.

Waiting for ferry.

Waiting for ferry.

It’s Sunday and we had to wake up as early as 8am (consider this is very early for me even for normal days) to catch a ferry from Torri del Benaco to Maderna. My man participated in Regatta that requires him to be in Salò by 9.30am. Salò is on the other side of Lake Garda or I would say the posh side of the lake.

I decided to put on my new leopard long jersey dress that I bought few days ago nearby our house accessorize with a very simple earrings and colorful arm candy and slipped on my bejeweled sandals and I’m ready to go! By the way, loving my just wake up messy hair. Woot! Woot!

Arrived Salò slightly late we had to rushed straight to the port and sent my man with kisses and hug and I’m off for my mission – Explore Salò! Sitting on an enchanting gulf at the foot of Mount S. Bartolomeo, Salò is the capital of the Upper Garda area within the province of Brescia. The old city center between Piazza Carmine, the “Fossa” and the lake shore is a dense network of streets, alleys and small squares lined with elegant homes, shops, restaurants and bars.

The shops here slightly expensive compare to my side of lake. Having said that, they do have loads of nice shops. I didn’t plan to shop anything or should I say I shouldn’t be spending any money at this moment because I’m broke? hahaha… Cut the story short i broke the rules when I went into one of the accessories shop – Dudu Shops. BAM!!! I spent EUR70 for 3 necklaces and funky spike bracelet. Good news is….. I saved up to 60%! Oh well… can’t really blame my man when he pissed off with me about my spending behavior. :p

I’m just a woman…. 😀

Here comes our ferry!

With unmistakable monogram ‘LV’ on its logo, Louis Vuitton is recognized as one of the most prestigious brands in the world. Beginning in 1854 with the production of travel bags, brand, based in Paris, Louis Vuitton, over the years transformed into a giant of the fashion world. After the merger with Moët House and Hennessy in 1987, he became the jewel in the crown of luxury titanium, corporations LVMH, which includes brands such as Fendi Marc Jacobs, Givenchy and others.

The central figure of Louis Vuitton’s continued success over the last century was the trademark logo, gracefully covering the surface of your fashion house, including the legendary trunks. At the time, the actor George Hamilton ordered a bag with special pockets for a laptop, martini shaker and offices for suits Anderson & Sheppard, as well as the need for expensive add-ons, such as a bag for the dog and the golf bag. They are still available in brown and beige color combination that has become a classic, as in 1888, when they were released for the first time, and also with religious monogram ‘LV’, developed in 1896 by George Vuitton, son of Louis.

Current status mainstay of high fashion was purchased mainly because of its creative director Marc Jacobs. Since 1998, the American designer revived the brand, developing the first line of women’s and men’s wear ready-to-wear, and then the categories of fine jewelry, watches and sunglasses. In addition, it has introduced the innovation to the traditional logo House with artists such as Stefan Spruz, Richard Prince and Takeshi Murakami, who painted LV icons in different colors, making the limited edition bags the pride of collectors.

In 2004, Louis Vuitton celebrated its 150th anniversary parties around the world, and in 2007 became a sensation thanks to an advertising campaign, created by photographer Annie Leibovitz, which brings together such diverse people as Mikhail Gorbachev and tennis couple Steffi Graf and Andre Agassi. Ad campaigns for Louis Vuitton took part in a lot of celebrities, among them Scarlett Johansson and Madonna, have repeatedly been the face of the brand. Now Louis Vuitton has millions of fans around the world wishing obzavestist any thing to the famous symbols and feel a part of the legendary brand.
