It's funny how for two winters in a row the internet has been scaring us with "the coldest winter in 100 years" and in the end they both turned out to be incredibly mild. It's not even March yet and we can safely say that spring has already arrived here in Tuscany, which I'm extremely happy about.

Diamond jewelry holds a very special place in the heart of every woman. We start dreaming about that solitaire ring from the day we stop reading fairy tales and we cherish every single diamond we own as our greatest treasure. But how to choose the right jewelry for our lifestyle and personality?

This never happens to me, but I really had to take these last few days off blogging. Me and hubs were busy working on a TV series we're producing and we're really happy because after months of hard work we have just finished shooting the final episode. It's about domestic violence and femicide - a real epidemic here in Italy - and it's been an incredible experience.

Maybe I'm just dreaming, but I can definitely sense a promise of spring in the air. It's always like that: I get excited for the new season way before it starts and then I get tired of it way before it's over. We always want what we don't have, no?

Hey babes! Are you all ready for Valentine's Day? I'm not sure what we'll be doing yet, but knowing myself (and hubs) we're probably going to end up devouring a typical Tuscan dinner - including prosciutto, bloody steak and good wine - in our favorite trattoria in Florence. Candle light is totally optional as long as the food is great...

Most people here in Italy can't tell my ethnicity by my accent or by looking at my face. More often than not their guess is that I'm American, which couldn't be further from the truth (and yes, I know it's not an ethnicity).

As some of you have already noticed, I have changed quite a few things in my blog's design and layout recently. Do you guys like it?

Just last week I published a post about how awesome winter is. Well, it’s not that I couldn’t convince myself… but I’m still really, really looking forward to spring with its sunny days, warm breezes and pretty pastel outfits. I had lots of fun putting together these sets using items from Esprit's new apparel and home collections.

Sunday lunch with the in-laws in the seaside town of Forte dei Marmi is one of our family traditions. It's nice to get out of town at least once a week, especially in the winter when the city is grey and cold and the beach is so beautifully sunny.
