12 Thoughts while watching Beauty and the Beast.


Beauty and the Beast has always been our favourite Disney movie, (sharing the top spot with Tangled when that came along) We feel we simply related to Belle the most, with her love of books, and we adored that she was kind hearted and sweet. The moment we found out that Emma Watson was playing Belle in a live action movie was the moment we were ready to watch the movie, like right there and then. So needless to say, when it was released this past Friday we were the first in line. Today we share some of the thoughts swirling around our brains while watching the tale as old as time...

Don't you just love it when you are pleasantly surprised? I have to admit, that was me with this book by Katy Hogan. I don't want to say that I thought I wouldn't get into it but upon reading the blurb, I wasn't sure it would be my cup of tea. What's that famous saying...oh yes, never judge a book by it's cover or in this case blurb, as I can happily tell you all, I absolutely loved it.

Welcome to Spring Tag.


Happy Spring Everyone!


So according to our calendars, Spring officially starts today. Woohoo! We love this time of year and would go as far as to say that Easter is our second favourite holiday after Christmas. We love the pretty colours, the weather, the flowers and of course the Easter Eggs. We also love that Easter makes us think of all the wonderful family memories we have, from meals around our table in England, to spending an Easter with family in New York, to taking part in a little Easter procession at a church in Italy. It's just a lovely time of year. 

Time for a chat!! Aisha


We found Aisha through taking part in a Girl Gang chat on Twitter over Christmas. We got so excited being able to chat to her about some of our favourite Italian Christmas cakes and since then have been avid readers of her blog! We adore that Aisha writes in both English and Italian as it's a constant source of practice for us as well as inspiration. We are so happy that we got to interview Aisha for our blog because well, what's not to love about chatting about Italy, food and make up??
