Holiday Mode

It’s been radio silence for a few weeks on this blog – sorry. I’ve been busy with some life things, and going on holiday. The smug holiday smile has been slowly wiped off my face this week, as I’m back in grey, rainy and cold England, but on the up side, I have fabulous memories, and some pretty good photos of our time away. 

All the below were taken on the iPhone 6 – I was pretty impressed with the camera. Haven’t edited any of these yet.

On Lake Garda at Saló

Peeking through in Saló
Our European jaunt took us to France, Switzerland and Italy, and it was blooming marvellous (thank you very much). So now it’s back to normality, and getting this thing back up and running. If you’re still reading it, that is!

A great place to eat, up in the hills above Bardolino


Love in Bardolino

The Frateli Vogadori vineyard in Negrar – home of some FINE Valpolicella!

Verona – outside Juliet’s house, all the lovers’ notes

Vineyards in Valpolicella region

Hidden away in Lake Idro

Limone Sul Garda

Masks in Limone

Limone, looking out up to Riva and Torbole

Lemons in Limone, of course.

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene…

I made a couple of cheeky purchases in France and Italy – some bits by La Roche Posay, Clarins and Phyto that are all ticking my boxes, so I’ll put up some details very soon. There’s also a giveaway coming up – I have an Eve Lom Cleanser that I bought for this, but now I just need to remember where I kept it ‘safe’. You know, when something is put away so safe, you will probably never find it again. This is what has happened here… wish me luck.

So HELLO again. How are you? Good, I hope. Let’s have a great Autumn shall we?
