Well helllooooo Friday - I thought I'd never see you again! I've been in Manchester, England all week for work - England is a beautiful place, but I'm ready to come home to sleep in my own bed and start my spring cleaning purge! Today I'm sharing a look from our Milan trip - we took a day trip to Lake Como and fell deeply in love with its charm. As soon as we arrived, I immediately had an image of the charming town from the 60's with the likes of Frank Sinatra and old Hollywood actresses roaming the streets. 

The common misconception is that Lake Como is a place when in fact that is just the name of the lake with its surrounding towns - Como being the most popular. The city of Como is surrounded by stone walls left from the medieval times. We walked the Duomo, had an espresso, ate lunch at La Vita E'Bella (eat their risotto) and then took a boat tour to see some of the GORGEOUS homes from the lake. "Toto, we are not in Kansas anymore" - the lake was lined with the most colorful lake side villas that gave me SERIOUS real estate envy. We did not see Villa de Clooney - although we asked :) We then took a funicular to Brunate which is a little town at the top of the mountain. From there you get to see some amazing panoramic views of the lake and Como.

'Ello puppet! How are you today? I'm still in "sunny" Manchester running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but I think I'll make it through. Working on a big event here and it's nearly done, and so are my travels for this month! I've been away from my home this month for 20 days and cannot wait to be in my own bed again! I have big plans to do a spring cleaning purge - does organizing and purging sound just as exciting to you as it does to me? Is that weird? A hoarder and I would never be compatible :)

Today I'm sharing a quick look from our Munich trip. I packed a TON of neutrals for the trip - it's such an easy color palate to work with, and even easier to mix and match the pieces. I had this big plan to bring a small number of pieces repeat and wear - never happened. 80 lbs of luggage is what happened - my back hates me :). Moving on….

Happy Monday all! Hope your Monday hangovers aren't too bad. I'm currently in the UK working on an event and will be here through the week - sleep is not something I do lately. Well, as they say, you can sleep when you're dead right?!

Today I'm sharing a look from our Milan trip (wearing this fabulous cape) - I have so many stories and things to share…lets save that all for another post! We picked one day on our trip to walk around and see the city like true tourists - it was a "wham bam thank you mam" kind of day! We started the day at the Museum Della Scienza e dellla Technologia - say that 10 times fast. It was pretty cool considering we both have never been to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. 

After the Museum we walked over to see two different churches, both so overwhelming and amazing. The first was the Basillica di Sant'Ambrogio (and the scene for this shoot - the light was amazing) and the Chiesa di San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore.  While both churches, they were both so unique in their own way - the second one had every inch of the inside painted, it was stunning!!
