In & Out 2.0

This is what's hot/cold for me at the moment:


- Twitter. I love Twitter and can't see it fading anytime soon.

- Jersey Shore season 4 taking place in Italy. I apologize in advance to all my Italian readers. I love Italy, I've been there twice (and hopefully more to come) and there's nothing that will amuse me more than seeing those orange clowns of Jersey Shore see what real Italians are like. Real Italian men are slim and stylish - not bulky, tan, Ed-Hardy clad "gorillas"... (sorry, Snooki!)

- these simple, slouchy leather clutches:

One of my girl friends posted this photo of herself modelling one of these bags and I immediately asked where it was from! Turns out it's from a young handbag designer from Romania, and she makes some beauuutiful stuff. I really want one! Click here to see more. The one I want costs $160 which isn't a lot for a finely crafted leather bag. I must get saving - and watch this space because when I do order I will definitely blog about it.

- Starbucks. I've been using my Air Miles to redeem for $25 Starbucks cards... so I've been trying out some new things. This week's favourites: their skinny green tea lattes and their blueberry bars. YUM!



- difficulty finding parking at school

- dehydrated skin! I'm seriously contemplating dishing out the money for the Chanel Hydramax Gel Cream... I have a sample and I'm in love... but am not in love with the price tag - $72... *gulp*... maybe once I use up my Chantecaille serum I will be able to justify this lovely cream.

That's about it for me today! Hope you're all having a great week :)


  1. i went to milan a few years ago and i agree, italian men are "slim & stylish." practically everyone i saw looked like a model. even the waiters! i felt so out of place :p

  2. Oh my lord I need that clutch in my life! If only it wasn't as expensive :( x

  3. I love clutches too! Thanks for sharing:-)

  4. ur soo funny lol - love ur INS

  5. That clutch is just gorgeous. I want one too.
    I have really dry skin in winter and I'd recommend dermologica skin hydrating booster over chanel hydromax.

  6. The clutch is sooo pretty. I checked the website and I like the red version the most.

  7. The clutch is beautiful, will have a look on the website now...

  8. Sandra,

    I got the moisturizer from Chanel, but it's the one that comes in a pump bottle. It's definitely expensive, and you can probably find something comparable/more effective at a lower price point (although I can't say what exactly...). Ever since Lancome discontinued their "Aqua Fusion" (which I have been using for years), I have been on the prowl for a new moisturizer. I was also hooked when I tried a sample of this moisturizer by Chanel; I love the its fresh scent, but I don't know if I really can justify buying it again!

    KarlaSugar suggested the moisturizer from MAC (of all things), saying that it is very light and moisturizing. Maybe you can check that one out :)

  9. love that pic, she looks fresh and cute!! xxx

  10. Join my Giveaway:)
    Love your blog:)


  11. hello there! well well, i have to say unfortunately the image of slim and stylish italian men is just a fairytale!
    being italian, precisely from rimini, i swear i get to see way too many men that do not really fit that classy image!
    too bad!

    besides that, i wanted to tell you how nice it is to watch your videos and read your blogs!
    keep on posting!
    baci! xx
