It has been a lifelong wish to travel to Italy. I love the food, cars, fashion, beauty and architecture!! Being able to share my first experience with my husband (still feels weird saying that, I love it) was more than I could have dreamed of. We stayed in Rome and took in so many sights that I havent been able to choose which photos to post. The Vatican, Sistine chapel, churches, Popes cemetery, museums, Spanish Steps, gelato, kissing in the streets and rubbernecking passed every street. Fountains with the most detailed and sophisticated sculptures were everywhere. Both my baby and I chatted back and forth guessing about life back in the day.
I searched a photo from the net on the Spanish Steps from the 18th century and snapped my own photo focusing on the little patio on top of the building. Places like that make my mind restless with thoughts...
Gelato and a red rose...he already has my heart but he loves reminding me how sweet and loving his nature is. Hand in hand, mouths enjoying treats, eyes enjoying history and that feeling of goodness being with the love of your life, far away. Away from everyone and everything familiar except for the store names that I know so lovingly; Bvlgari, Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Dior everywhere..even in the airports,I was truly pleased in every sense.
Italy did it for me, the women are beyond fashionable and the older ladies love wearing their fur. I haven been mistaken for an Italian many times throughout my life, Italians and middle easterners do look a lot a like. Being there made me see what others saw, how easily one can be mistaken for the other. Hair styles in Italy were ALL about the Ombre. Extreme two tone though...dark natural roots and light light mid shaft and ends.I saw a lot of colored liquid eyeliner and not one red set of lips. I kinda dig that.
Sometimes in the states, when one states what is in style, people quickly go overboard and lose originality in their style when they are trying so hard to be stylish. I love Italy, I love Italian food. Coming back to Los Angeles we looked for the best rated Italian restaurant but I was disappointed. My taste buds hadnt ever been so pleased as they were in Roma!
