Bologna Bound!

I'm off to Bologna for a long weekend with the girls, and that can only mean three things....

Shopping, shopping and more shopping!

Now the only thing thats slightly taking the shine off this is that I'm flying Ryan Air (yikes!), so with only hand luggage, that may cramp my style somewhat, but I'm sure I'll find a way around it.  In fact, I think I already have!

And I'm really proud of myself that I've managed to fit all, and I mean all, my make-up, creams, lotions and potions in one tiny little bag - no mean feat for me, which you'll fully understand if you've read my article on the Beauty Passionista blog, which you can find here.

If there is anything you think I shouldn't miss while I'm there - restaurants, bars, shopping sights, then please do let me know.

I'll write more when I get back and I'll be tweeting from there, so follow me on twitter by clicking here: Ambarina's Twitter

Until then, Ciao Bella!!!

SOTD Rupert Sanderson Magnum

Yes folks, it's Shoe Of The Day!

Today, was a big day in terms of dressing up.  I attended a lunch for 250 guests, so it had to be the high heels.  But there was a catch.  I was wearing a sari, so the shoes couldn't be too heavy or clumpy looking as that would ruin the ultra-feminine look of a sari.

Rupert Sanderson came to the rescue, with glossy high-heeled, platform slingbacks, in a mushroom-y taupe-y colour, with a razor-sharp ultra-pointed fabulous toe.  Fierce!

You like?  Yay or Nay?

It's about time....

Well, I've long been wondering where to share my love of shoes, a love (nay, obsession, according to all who know me), that has been with me since before I hit my teenage years.

To put my ramblings on Beauty Passionista seems kind of odd, so the only other option seems to be another blog. I probably won't post on here as often, but given my love of shoes, handbags and shopping in general, I get the feeling it won't be too long before there's a post or two on here.

Shoes, handbags, going out, the finer things in life... just stuff that comes into my head.... it'll all be here.

So please feel free to post your comments and shopping suggestions, all will be gratefully received, (although not by my bank manager!)

And there may be the odd lipgloss on here too - can't promise it won't make an appearance!
