Cruising my way to Amsterdam

Apr 15 2019

My mantra has always been ‘Carpe Diem’ (Latin for ‘Seize the day’) because life’s too short to miss out on the good things in life such as travel, food, films & love! And I live by it! My latest trip is a testimony to this mantra.

The first time I went to Amsterdam was 16 years ago at a work conference. I did not have enough time to absorb its vibe in full then. Nevertheless, I fell in love with the city almost instantly. It is quirky and crazy enough to appeal to my wild side but also beautiful and watery. I love all cities that grow on water and overlook the sea. It has been compared to the Venice of the North but, being Italian and having been in Venezia at least 100 times, I have to disagree. The only similarity between the two cities is the canal system. Everything else is unique to them.

Kids’ Fashion Trends for Spring

Apr 03 2019

Do children really care about fashion trends? With a very few exceptions, they don’t and frankly, they shouldn’t. They need to spend time playing outdoor with friends, learning how to socialise rather than being fashion conscious. It’s some of us mums who care about how they look like during special occasions. I personally don’t want my son to attend a wedding in muddy tracksuits, even if I know that he would not care less about it. Check out some of my favourite kids’ Fashion Trends for this Spring.
