  1. definitely office supplies. i was gifted some amazing notebooks, pencils, pens, fountain pen etc from italy. they just have better paper stuffs.

    • ooo, great idea, i love beautiful thick papers + nice leathers. pens are always risky gifts for me – i lose them on a daily basis!

  2. So gorgeous! Last time I went to Italy I came home with fresh amaretti cookies! Divine.

    • cookies! that was literally the first thing i thought of! : )

      best travel souvenirs ever: food. i always bring back tiny bags of potato chips for my friends from whatever country i am visiting, the flavors are always different / more delicious / awesome.

  3. italy – food and tights!

    i like your dishes. i prefer simple over fancy food.

    ps. you’ve got me curious about ‘on love’. maybe he was getting a bad experience out of his system. i hope he doesn’t hate women.

    • yes- it might be interesting to read his early works to compare. i have heard great things about his more recent books (especially the one you are reading!), but i was kind of turned off forever after reading ‘on love.’ i found him insufferable yet i compulsively read the whole thing anyway. read it. you’ll know exactly what i mean!! : )

  4. where in italy will he be? and YUM on the food. wow, kind of makes me hungry!

    • he’s going to verona and some surrounding vineyards!! he won’t be in any major cities but i’m still soooo jealous. obviously i am going to have him ship back a ton of wine. ; )
