How’s that going to look in your kitchen? The Dolce&Gabbana collab with SMEG, for the second time, is just super colourful. Called Sicily is my Love, this is a celebration of the duo’s love and passion for their home, their history rich island Sicily, where colour and patterns reign supreme. Gold lemons, citrus fruits, prickly pears and bright red cherries, little drawings of local typical scenes, that normally inhabit the world of Dolce&Gabbana, are now disguising normal everyday appliances with CHARM! After painting SMEG fridges, here come the toasters, citrus juicers, coffee machines, kettles, blenders, and stand mixers that will stand out in any kitchen, your own or in a cute cafe.

Colour me Beautiful

More SoCal ( Southern California) than Hamburg…

My absolutely favourite slide to wear inside and outside, ( in the summer) is the BIRKENSTOCKwithout a doubt! A couple of years ago, I only wore flip flops, and lots of really flat sandals and unfortunately I ended up with a fasciitis plantar, from Wikipedia “…Plantar fasciitis is a disorder that results in pain in the heel and bottom of the foot.[1] The pain is usually most severe with the first steps of the day or following a period of rest.[3] Pain is also frequently brought on by bending the foot and toes up towards the shin and may be worsened by a tight Achilles tendon.”

The pain is excruciating, it hurts so much just to walk, from then on I needed to have an arch support and so began my love affair with these unlikely unsexy sandals. Love them, especially the coloured ones for summer because as you can imagine, the cork ones do not do “beach+sand” so well.

Which colour, which style?  Which colour, which style?

Coloured Classics

I adore classic watches, from true watchmakers/ jewellers, so I think it’s so cool to see these gorgeous vintage timepieces being given a new face, no pun intended! Painting each dial and watchstrap by hand, La Californienne ensures that these classic watches are given a new ingenious beginning without losing their original vibe.
