Love from Italy…

Love from Italy…

In 2012, we visited Rome in Italy in the mid August high season for Paul’s 30th birthday. We love the Italian way of life, from chic fashion to informal dining and good coffee.

Visiting in the hottest point of the year made sightseeing hard work. Dusty streets and the sheer volume of people had us hunting out quiet bars and piazzas to rest in the shade.

Do Valetines Day differently with Retro Sweet

When it comes to Valentines Day or any other occasion that requires chocolates to be bought, I always feel a bit left out as I don’t particularly like it.

I do however like retro sweets from my childhood and I love it when I find new places to stock up or I am given a 20p mix up! I am easily pleased!

I Love You Sweet Words
