wise words

"Women dress for other women to let them know what their deal is. Because if women were only dressing for men, there would be nothing but Victoria's Secret. There would be no Dior" - anonymous.

Cinderella's Glass Slipper

I loved this little factoid:

"Cinderella's famous glass slipper was actually made of fur as was customary back in mediaeval times for the ladies of the chateaux. This confusion occurred because vair (fur) has the same sound as verre (glass). The peasants who told and retold the Cinderella story, not having fur slippers themselves, formed the quaint notion that Cinderella's slippers were made of twinkling glass." - Native Tongues, Charles Berlitz.

My Italian Dream Retreat

This stunning 11th century resurrected farmhouse in Umbria is everything I'm looking for in an Italian countryside retreat. Boasting 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, thus accommodating up to 12 persons, Villa Arrighi can be all yours (as long as your budget allows it) at a cost of $23,000-$30,000 per week. 

Aaaah the view the view the view!! I can smell the fresh crisp air from across the screen and already picturing myself - cue the music - dining al fresco. I'll be having a salad and bruschetta and maybe a pasta dish (hell I'm on vacation!). 

Mental note: make list of 11 lucky friends to come with next year.

Chocolate Covered Cornflakes

When in Londres, these heavenly chocolate cornflake bites from Marks&Spencer are basically my pre-breakfast breakfast. They are after all cornflakes so don't judge! I do miss them terribly since M&S don't stock them here :( But I did manage to find a 2nd class substitute.

They can make do until my next trip to London.

This cute baby Yoda beanie I like. Hmmmmmm.
