I woke up this morning to the song of Kendji Girac “Les Yeux de La Mama”. It’s no other than my little daughter running towards my bed with daddy’s iPhone in her tiny hand blasting the music and tilting her head right and left along with the rhythm (and sporadically saying: “Mama!”). It is Mother’s Day in the Middle East today and we’ve been actually celebrating Motherhood since the beginning of this month as it was mum’s day in the UK earlier this month. Middle Easterns started celebrating since and will probably keep it going until the American Mother’s Day in May! Nothing exaggerated in that, we love our moms so much that we praise them on each and every opportunity! (…and we like celebrating!)
Today we also traditionally celebrate the beginning of spring, the blooming season of Nature’s gorgeousness.
It is such a beautiful day rejoicing two splendid life-giving phenomenons and I can’t help but make my OOTD and decor celebrate along!
There are few places on earth where art and reality seem to melt into each other and the Lake Como region is one of those. A perfect detox spot due to the idyllic scenery, Bellagio also has what Italy does best, a cute small village with amazing food and amazing small stores filled with treasures! When in Bellagio, you’ll realize why Italy has been the source of inspiration for so many artists over the years and you’ll in turn give them a bit less credit 😜 no offense D&G (still think you’re amazing) but you’ll also awaken the stylist in you as all those beautiful finds you dig up in stores here and there will demand to be styled on your Italian alter ego!
