La vita e bella

If you follow me on Twitter then you might have seen me mention the fact that I'm going to Italy for two weeks.

This is my first visit to the land of vino, Gucci and gelato and I can't wait. I've always wanted to go there. And yes I am using this post as an excuse to post some images of Gucci's gorgeous jewel coloured collection for Autumn/Winter 11!

We'll be staying with my boyfriend's family near Portofino and have also got trips to Milan and Venice booked. I'll tell you all about it (and probably the 'one or two' purchases I 'might' make) when I get back. While I'm away I'm going to leave my blog in the capable hands of some of my favourite bloggers and tweeters. Enjoy! x

P.S. If you've been to Genoa, Milan, Portofino or Venice I would love to hear your reccomendations for places to visit.


  1. I went to Genova and Milano this year. In Milan there is a great family run trattoria on via felice casati it's close to and on the same side of the road as the Best Western Milano Felice Casati. Its a short walk from the main railway station in Milano. Oh it is wonderful they are so friendly and the food is wonderfully amazing. We went there both nights we were in Milano and in a strange way I actually miss them and would go back there in heartbeat. a meal for 4 with everything was 100 euro too so really reasonable. Also if you can visit the Duomo Milano you should and don't forget to go to the galleria opposite and spin round 3 times on the bulls testicle on the floor for luck.
    Have a great time. I am dying to go back!
