Just like when it snows outside

It seems like the whole Europe will be wrapped in fur for the next couple of days. And who doesn't like that? I most certainly do.

white faux fur: Promod
black faux fur: vintage

The bad things about having a job are too many to count.
The good thing about having a job is that I bought myself a new perfume, yesterday.

Deep inside

Or, if you prefer, "What's in my bag".
I guess it is a bit abused..
Anyways, on with it: it was a sunny morning around Christmas, and I felt the need of a new black bag.
It's been years that my obsession for the magnificent Birkin by Hermes accompanies me, almost everywhere I go, but life is funny sometimes, and apparently my bank refuses to pay for it.
So, as I was walking around the market in Rimini I saw this beauty, and decided it could do the job, until the more famous sister would turn up.
Here it is:

Humongous, heavy and uncomfortable, exactly what I needed.
As for what's inside:

A perfume: Love, by Chloé, which makes me feel very sophisticated.
A book: The Terrible Privacy of Maxwell Sim, Coe's last novel, and I love it, as usual.
An agenda: Moleskine.
A wallet: Gherardini.
A black furry hat: LDA.
A pair of green leather gloves, an apple (yes, whatever) and a box of chocolate alphabet (much more likely to be the chosen one).
Wipes: Fortnum & Mason, cos I am chic like that.
A bow necklace and a make up bag: both by Down the Rabbit Hole.

And what's inside the bag that's inside the bag?
(forgive me, I have had a very stressful week)

Foundation: Bourjois healthy mix serum n.52
A couple of brushes: Sigma F84 and F86.
Bronzer: Hoola by Benefit.
Blusher: Watercolor in Spice by Daniel Sandler.
Lash and brow groomer: e.l.f.
Lipstick: Dior Addict n.214 by Dior.
Eyeshadow: Illusion d'ombre n.83 by Chanel.
a ring, 2 hairbands, some tissues and a mirror, just in case.

Et voilà!
Soundtrack to this blog: Serge Gainsbourg - Ecce Homo (another good reason to love that bag)

If I were to fall in love with Rimini for the first time

It would not take long.

ponte di Tiberio, first century A.D.
I would stare at this bridge and realize the Romans knew their shit.

Ristorante Dal Corto ((link!) 
I would try everything on the menu of this lovely hidden restaurant, and I would promise I'd come back as often as I could,

Café Boheme (link!)
I would spend a lot of money here, pretending I was rich and famous (you have to start somewhere),

La Brezza
and I would try to forget anything is not worth remembering here, because they say cleaning is the first step for a new start.
Falling in love with Rimini is something everyone should try, at least once.

Bologna, morning affection, a few years back 
my favourite parisienne
Rimini, waiting for a well deserved pizza
Bologna. It was love at first sight.
Some girls just don't need make-up
