Fa’ la cosa giusta! is back in Milan in the halls of Fiera Milano CIty from 30 March to 1 April.  It is a great opportunity to see a wide selection of ethical exhibitors ranging from cosmetics to apparel, from food to tourism. It’s pretty hard not to be tempted (; You can find all the information, catalog and costs on falacosagiusta.com. Among the most interesting things to see I suggest the stand by La Tilde, a girl reinventing with flair, genius and a really good taste trivial items such as ties and telephones till they become… I’ll let you find out!

Spots in… Milan

Today I want to talk to you about a special place in Milan. It is a store called Tourbillón owned by Adriana Morandi.

Delicious food, great location – Westbourne Grove, just 5 minutes away from Notting Hill area and Portobello market – the nicest staff and a super cute shop selling home decor, retro items and little trinkets (especially coming from old childhood memories) you will hardly find elsewhere.
