On The Couch With.....................

..............with the lovely COCO from Italy.

We became blogging buddies only recently
but she is such a wonderfully kind person
that I wanted to introduce her to those who 
may not know her yet.

So here Coco reveals a little more
about what makes her heart sing.

How long have you been blogging and why did you start your blog?
  I've been blogging for over one year. I started my blog because I love writing, I love fashion, and I felt the need to share my passion, make it real. I also thought that people - getting to know me through my posts - might want to have me as their personal stylist/virtual shopper.

What has surprised you most about blogging?  
I made friends. Lovely, charismatic, sensitive, open-minded women from all over the world have earned my profound admiration and affection, and have encouraged me throughout my blogging experience.  

You are Italian, so who is your Italian style icon?

Bianca Balti. She is stylish inside, which basically means she could get away 
with anything and still look elegant and classy.

Which celeb do you think has the best style/look at the moment?
Cate Blanchett, another lady shining from her inside. 

How would you describe your style?
I have been experimenting more since I started blogging, 
but in the end I need to feel feminine and chic. 

The one brand you can't live without?
Chanel. Can you imagine the world without the
iconic C?



The way you would spend your fantasy 24 hours:
with no travel or money restrictions ;-)
In Dubai: every 3 hours of shopping, 1 our of spa treatments. What else?

Dubai shopping
Dubai shopping mall

Favorite place in Italy?
The romantic, opulent, decadent 

Wardrobe staples?
Silk scarves, bon ton dresses and ballerinas.

Saving up for?
One pair of Aruna Seth's fabulous pumps.

Aruna Seth Butterfly Pumps

The temptation you wish you could resist?
Online shopping and designer outlets: 
I can't possibly say no to a good bargain!

Favorite hotel?
 I Bagni Vecchi at Bormio (thermal water spring). 

Book or Kindle?
Book without hesitation. 

The book that holds an everlasting resonance?
The Alchemist by P. Coelho

Perfume of the moment?
La vie est belle by Lancome

Best skincare tip you have ever been given?

My mom applied unrefined shea butter every night 
as an eye and face cream, 
and always had the plumpest and smoothest skin.

A person from history you would love
to share a plate of pasta with?
Cicero: I'm fascinated by his "ars oratoria", 
I could definitely use a couple of tips from the maestro. 

The unfulfilled ambition that continues to
haunt you (if there is one)?
I'd love to work - I mean earning a living  -  
in the fashion industry, to be an influencer.

 Tell us something that would really
surprise us about you? ;-)
I can't think of anything really 
surprising about me. 

Your motto or mantra?

How would you like to
be remembered?
I find happiness in giving love and being loved. 

That's how I'd like to be remembered.

So there you have it, the lovely Coco from
If you love fashion and a really girlie
read, then that's the place to go.

Happy weekend Lovelies
