There's something about coming home. And yes, I would call Milan my home - one of my three homes. Every time I find myself on the airport shuttle that will take me into the city centre, I feel, in some weird and inexplicable way, that I am home. That there's nothing to fear. That I am surrounded by people I love.

Bag, H&M; Marie Claire magazine; Enchanted Eye Cream, Lush; vegan vitamins, Holland & Barrett;
sunglasses, H&M; pen from a huge box of different-coloured pens from the 99p store
Tomorrow I'm going to Milan for five days!
I can't wait to see everyone and spend some time in the sun. I'll spend a long weekend stuffing my face with my in-laws' delicious food (they even make super-yummy vegan dinners just for me) and going to all of my favourite Milan spots with all of my favourite Milan friends. Only obstacle: the road to a fabulous vacation always goes through a very non-fabulous day of packing.

If there's any ONE event this year that I'd love to be invited to, it's the Met Ball. The old-school Hollywood glamour of it has always fascinated me. So far from the teenybopper awards shows (where Twilight gets voted best movie and I just want to die a little) or the show-offiness of Fashion Week. It's just classy. And classic.

Yesterday we visited a London area that we had yet to explore - Greenwich. We went to visit a new friend we'd met through mutual friends and we were blown away by how beautiful this area is!
Our new friends live in one of the most enviable houses I've ever seen - big but not huge, with a lovely garden, impeccably decorated and very personal - with two cats, just two minutes' walk from the centre of Greenwich, which feels like a tiny city of its own. All afternoon yesterday I felt like we were away on a getaway to another city (like when we went to Brighton). It didn't feel like we were in London at all - in a good way. In a wonderful way.

Today David and I took a long walk around the park and I couldn't help but realize how lovely the weather is! It's finally summer here in London. Summer, meaning sunglasses, drinking wine at sunset and...shopping!
I don't know about you, but when summer rolls around, I always get an urge to shop. And what's number one on my list? Usually pretty dresses that can be worn with anything from Converse to stilettos, from the beach to a birthday party. Dresses that can be remembered for that time you watched the sun rise on the beach or got off the plane on holiday. Happy dresses.
Here are some vegan favourites of mine - oh, and they all come from sustainable, eco-fashion brands!

I am addicted to my iPhone - that's hardly news.
Since I've gotten into yoga, I've realized that it's quite a costly passion. I try and go to classes at Embody Wellness as often as I can, but as it's not exactly cheap, I've also downloaded a few yoga apps for home practice.
