Who doesn’t love monkeys? They’re funny, and irresistibly cute!!

And they’re perfect for a nursery, with their fluffy and happy faces.

Inspire your weekend: Disney Dream Portrait Series


Annie Leibovitz is one of the most creative and talented photographers alive. When you see one of her shots you can’t help feeling like you’re part of the scene too, and in my opinion this is the greatest gift of all for an artist.

Enchanting the spectator so as to make him feel part of the masterpiece himself.

Since 2007, Annie has been collaborating with Disney in a series of ads to promote Disney Parks “Year of a Million Dreams”. The portraits in this series feature Hollywood celebs in Disney fairy tale scenes… and they’re AMAZING!!!

Enjoy the gallery:

Let’s say you have a bright and cozy spot in your home where you love spending relaxing moments sipping a coffee… why not cheering it further up with some colored flowers in a window box? I love the idea!!

You simply need a plastic flower box, floral foam and fabric flowers. I chose daisies and tulips since they are my favorite, but you can obviously pick whichever you like and also make them yourself! … Read more...

Snuggles for the eyes - vol1


I’ve always loved fashion. Yes, I’m Italian, I guess it is part of my DNA :)

And since I’ve become a mom… well, I totally lost my mind for BABY and KID FASHION! It must be for the cute  pastel colors, for the soft and tender textures, for the adorable prints… whatever the spell is, I simply can’t resist admiring the beautifully designed clothes for the kids, and wish that lovely dress is available for teenagers too, so I still have a chance to fit in it (even if I’m not a teenager anymore…) :)

OK, it’s true that kids grow …

Delightful Pastel Nurseries


When I got pregnant with my baby girl a whole new world opened up for me. Literally. And it was the greatest blessing of my life.

Before that, I used to be a neuroscientist wannabe, i.e. a post-doc research fellow who used to work interminable hours in a lab with the hope to really contribute and make the difference. Well, turned out I actually was VERY FAR from all of this, and motherhood opened up my eyes to the truth. Long story. Anyway, the last trimester of pregnancy also gave me an invaluable chance: get (finally!!!!) more time to catch … Read more...
