Well, friends, I’m headed to Italy for some fun in the sun. I couldn’t feel more ready to immerse myself in Italian life for a few days; to indulge in my favourite cuisine in the world; to drive my heartmate mad by taking a million and one photos(!); to spend time with an inspiring friend; to see Tuscany for the first time and to hopefully return with plenty of colourful inspirations to share with you all. I’ll try and pop in next week with a little ‘Hello’ (wifi depending) and there’s some fun little posts I’ve scheduled to keep the colour party going whilst I’m gone. In the meantime, check out this Italian store tour I blogged last summer – it never fails to inspire me. Hugs to you all!

  1. Italy!! I'm so jealous! I will actually be visiting Germany and Prague in a week or so too! Would love to meet you in person if I'm stopping by London this time. Sadly I don't think I will be able to make a quick stop at London this time.

    Enjoy your mini vacay!

  2. Ooooh Have fun and safe travels Will! I can't wait to see some of your photos from your trip. 🙂

  3. Have a wonderful time – I bet you'll love it! And I'm totally looking forward to seeing Tuscany through your (colourful) eyes…different quality of light

  4. You lucky cat!!! I LOVE anything Italian. I have spent a lot of time in Italy but never in Tuscany. Yes, please – TONS of pictures.

    My first day back in blog land after weeks off. I feel rested and inspired. Try to stay away from the computer when in Italy. Be in the moment, Will!

    Hugs to you and safe travels.


  5. Have Fun in Italy, dear Will!!!! Tuscany is a magic country, with magic colors. I love it and I've visited a thousand times!
    See you soon!
