Dolce & Gabbana Time commercial

Can I just say how much I love this commercial? Yes? Okay, I love this for so many reasons;
1. Hot models
2. Spectacular clothes
3. The concept of the commercial is "Molto carinooooo" as we say here in Italy and the end is kinda quirky

I'm guessing we don't have this commercial in Canada.. so enjoy :)

And upon searching for this one, I also found another from D&G Time that I liked as well (not sure what year it's from the video was posted in 2007 on Youtube):

It was love at first sight with these Burberry Fall/Winter 09 Boots... I know a lot of hardwear is in right now (I Looooove the Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 09 line-up of boots), but I think it's the simplicity of this boot and its undeniable wickedness without being too trendy that really appeals to me !
Here's a pic of some boots from Wang:

Travel Blues

Lyon, France

When travelling with all your clothing options limited to what can fit into one suitcase, I find it easiest if I carry mostly basics with a few interesting pieces like a fringed purse or a leapord scarf to make my outfit.  It can be really discouraging to want to always look your best when catching flights from point a to z, and always having to think ahead of time about what you'll be wearing.  So I went ahead and tried to solve this problem by keeping it light and since I'm travelling... what the hell? I might as well do some shopping while I'm at it and buy whatever I feel I'm missing. Budget?? I blew through mine a longg time ago ;) oops.

Jeans: Nudies
Leather Jacket: Zara
Purse: Aldo
Leather Boots: Market in Italy
Scarf & Necklace: H&M

This babe consistently looks amazing.  It's hard to always be original when keeping with the trends and lusting after the season's must have items, but Liz never fails to impress with her unique style and her original and wicked personality!

A little Canadian Vist

Ugh!! What a weekend! Went something like this:

Wednesday I had 2 exams and right after I bused off to Rome where I spent the night in a hostel. (Walking around Rome in the dark by myself made me feel really vulnerable, and gave me such a danger rush!) I woke up at the crack of dawn and made my way to the train station and took a half hour ride to Fiumicino Airport.  I was pretty early (better to be early than miss the plane, especially since all the panic I delt with about my tix not arriving in time!!), so I checked in and handed over my bag that contained basically my whole summer wardrobe (I was bringing a bunch of stuff home so I wouldn't have to deal with it all in December) which included every pair of shorts I own and all my favorite sandals, a pair of vans, my brand new 200euro Tod's flats, my new Zara heels and a few others as well as my amazing boots I picked up (and had planned on wearing that weekend). Inside was all my makeup, perfume, phone charger etc etc etc.  You get the idea rightt?! So I arrived in Toronto after a grueling and painfully slow 10 hour flight...the closer we got the more anxious I got! I couldn't believe I hadn't been home in over 3 months!!

I jetted out of the plane and went to wait for my one piece of luggage...But it didn't come.  Alitalia said they had accidentally left a whole container of suitcases in Rome and assured me that I would be delivered to my house the following day just after 6pm. which was Friday night.. Well it is now Tuesday night, and I am back in Italy, without having a clue as to where my suitcase aka half my life is!!

Well that put a damper on things, but I did go out Thursday night to dinner with the whole fam to The Keg, which, for those of you who know me well, know it's my favorite restaurant.. Filet Mignon, 3 cheese butter and frizz! mmmmm

After dinner I called up my best homegirl and we headed to Strangelove to mingle and dance with friends, and incidentally came home at such an obscene hour we got caught in standstill morning traffic beside men wearing suits and ties. UGH! I went to bed for approximately 2 and a half hours before I was woken by my mom to go shopping... I didn't really buy anything since compared to the shopping here in Italy, absolutely nothinggg (except the most amazing Louboutin heels heels) excited me.  And what a tragedy, especially when you have the opportunity to con momma-dearest into buying something pretty for her nomad daughter! (Actually, I think they have done quite enough for me, I'd probably feel like I was robbing them if I took anymore!)
After walking around Yorkdale mall, I met up with my sister to go to Vaughan Mills mall and check out the new and HUGE Forever21.  The clothing there didn't excited me, but they did inspire my costume for that night...a burlesque dancer!! Yes, I don't think I have ever used Halloween as an opportunity to dress skanky, so I thought I better do it before I got too old to even consider such a thing! Maryann and I went to a pre-party at a friends and headed out to a party to which we bought tickets.. Definitely a lack-luster evening.

Saturday however brought on the conversation of what to do with my cell phone since the charger was in my suitcase and it was dead...BUY A NEW ONE... OBVI!!
I was in need of a new one anyway (bringing your cell phone to the beach isn't a good idea with all the water around, as well as taking it to meet the toilet..), so instead of waiting 4 more weeks until I was home to get my new snazzy piece of technology, Saturday was the day: Hell yes to the iPhone! It's sexy.  My cutie father also brought me to shoppers to buy a mascara and eyeliner to hold me over until my suitcase was "definitely arriving Sunday morning." UH HUH!

Saturday night I ventured to London with my amazing friend Maddi.  We stayed over at my friend Dragana's place with her ridiculously sweet and super adorable friend Dalia.  Of course Maddi and I stopped by to pick up our favorite Pad Thai made in london. Seriously, if you love Pad Thai and find yourself hungry in London, Please, go there! No disappointments! Anyway: What a night! Hardly remember the details but it was great being back; felt like I hadn't ever left! And the next morning was made better with an amazing bacon & egger bagel from the Bagel Deli. With that, we said good-bye to London and the girls and headed home.  I stopped by my grandfather's house for a "quick" pop in that lasted an hour and a half.  Always something interesting when it come to him.  He gave me this beaded blazer to bring back to Italy.  My cousin had apparently left it there when she stayed for the summer.  I will definitely be posting a picture of it because it is the most detailed, amazing piece of art I have ever held in my hands! (I should say they lost that luggage too and steal it for myself.. uahaha). 

Sunday night I hung out with Iva and was so happy I got to see her before I left.  Another one of the best home has to offer :)  And so my crazy, sleepless weekend came to an end and I spent the next morning getting ready to jet off yet again.  (I really no longer envy the jet-set lifestyle of the rich and famous, I flew twice in 4 days and I'm nearly half dead).

So I'm back to Siena where it is way colder than Toronto and I'm glad I took my heavy down-filled parka back with me, because it will be much needed as it was today!
Hopefully new pictures will be posted soon! (As soon as a catch up on my sleep)
