♥ ravelry and my new fave

Hi honey, I wanna share with you my last fave and what I discovered yesterday, I'm too excited, I'm feeling like a child has just got a new toy!

I used to knit and sew a lot but after the university when I started to work I left this my passion bit by bit. I wanna show you a secret: vigutto, check that out!! This is my old blog/brand, it was cool few years ago but in the last years I just sewes something behind order. The last best product was fabric laptopcase set: vigcase.

Anyway, now I'd like to kint something for my little baby and I found several super blogs and an amazing social network: revelry! It is a place just for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, weavers and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools, project and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration. I found such a lot of inspirations!! but also I can't wait to add my works I did in the past.
Stay tunned ... I'm going to share everything with you.

On another side I'm going to change the headline of my blog so ... I need inspirations!

♥ drin drin in portobello

Hi all,
I decided to add a yummy post today. I bumped into this fantastic gelateria just last weekend and I was first really impressed about the design of the shop and the graphic they have used about brand, sign, packaging and all paper stuff. After that I couldn't help to taste the icecream and ... it was heavenly! OMG!!! It was so soft, delicate, creamy ... such a delicacy!

DrinDrin is located in the heart of Portobello Market right next door to the Electric Cinema (189 Portobello Road London W11 2ED) and it's open every day till late (11 p.m.).

When I got home I immediately checked thier website and it seems they spent a great deal of time to create recipes from most refined artisanal Italian tradition, the gelato is completely natural. They try to avoid emulsifiers and non-natural thickeners. You can taste gelato or sorbetti as well.

If you are are around don't miss it!!!

You can't believe what's happen to me yesterday, WOW. I flew back from Italy to London and on the plan the girls sitted next to me was reading the Sophie Kindella's new book. Is the new book in the bookshop!!?? I didn't know so I immediatly thought I had to buy it. Her last book (Twenties Girls) I read was so funny, great and light reading as well that I can't miss the new one!

Anyway I was walking throught spitalfield market to get home when I spotted an A4 poster hung on the window of Benefit Cosmetic' shop saiying: Celebrations for the launch of Sophie Kinsella new book: Mini Shopaholic....and more. Whhhhaaaaattttt????? Seriously?????

I went inside and I first got a free drink and some special and gorgeous cupcakes (I checked on line who was the maker!!) then a free natural and amazing make up (my husband liked that a lot!) and after that I attended the presentation of MINI SHOPAHOLIC, the Sophie Kinsella's newest book by her! What the next? I got my free autographed copy with a personal dedication!! Actually I coudn't help to tell her my story about the plan and the book and she was so amazed she told that to her agent and we laughed a lot. She is so cute and kind!

What fantastic welcome back did I got from my lovely London??!!
