People... the Girls at Umbria Jazz, part 1

The girls at Umbria Jazz... Annika, Erika, Diletta, Soave, Marija....
they have been the usual suspects for many years! Obviously, there are many more ladies working for the festival, but it's impossibile to name and depict them all. Two things they have in common: determination and passion for Umbria Jazz!

Shopping for spring

This weekend I went out to do some spring shopping for myself & for my home. Here are some of the things that I bought or... want to buy....! I think the flowers, butterfly plates and the Prada (car appliqué) clutch are to die for...

Spring Wishlist!

Don't you just wanna run to the store when you see these gorgeous spring items? I love all the bright colours! I think they make the clothes and the accessories look just as "yummy" as the candy!

Today I could finally put one of my new Marni for H&M pieces on...
I love it!!! It arrived right on time for the SS12 presentation at fashion store Donna Tienda (a blog on this store will follow soon).

Another highlight of the day was the arrival of the very first issue of Dutch Vogue.... It's something I've been waiting for for years! The best Dutch designers, photographers, models and stylists are featured in it. Pure bliss! Check it out if you can.

Belvedere restaurant, Warsaw, Poland

Warsaw is probably not the first place that comes to mind when thinking about great cuisine... but I have to tell you.... I did find it right there in the Polish capital!

Belvedere Restaurant is in fact a very special place, that I discovered through a colleague. It's located in the orangerie of the Warsaw Royal Bath Gardens, in the outskirts of Warsaw, so take a cab to get there and don't be surprised by the surroundings... (We arrived in the dark and wondered if we were in the right spot, but it all turned out just fine! During the day, it's very different.)

The Belvedere offers a mixture of Polish and international dishes, including 'zurek' (sour rye soup) and the famous 'pierogi' (dumplings, traditionally stuffed with saurkraut or potatoes).
Not feeling very adventurous? Just take the risotto, the shrimp salad or the steak tartare, all from the chef's signature menu. By the way, they serve a few pleasant vegetarian options as well.

The Belvedere is a very exclusive restaurant, fit for an important business dinner, a romantic date, sunday brunch, or even for a wedding reception! I was blown away by all the plants surrounding the tables... truly unforgettable. Next time you're in Warsaw, check it out!
