The Sunday Post: Italy Photo Diary


Just moments after stepping off the plane and leaving the airport, I knew Italy was going to be good to me. From the buzz of the busy streets in Florence to the beautiful architecture, all wrapped up with a relaxed and inviting welcome where ever we went, it felt perfect. Ferragamo very kindly invited me a long to the their latest fragrance launch – more on that later this week – and booked me a wonderful little hotel tucked away just a few steps from the river.

The smell of wood burning fires rose through the open balcony doors as I unpacked my suitcase, and I couldn’t help not only feel like one of the luckiest girls in the world, but also desperate to get outside and explore some more.

We walked by the river, and through the busy streets towards the cathedral, also known as Il Duomo di Firenze, which is honestly one of the most breath taking buildings I’ve ever seen (warning I have a thing with european buildings and architecture so please bear with me during these kinds of posts as I will just talk about my favourite buildings). I didn’t get the chance to make my way to the top, but trust me when I say it’s on my list. 

I’m not sure what I loved most, maybe it was the delicious food, the smell of wood burning fires in the streets or the fact that they would only accept my full name with it’s Italian spelling instead of my preferred – I really did start to come around to “Susanna Bonaldi” after 24 hours of hearing it in such a charming accent – but one things for sure, I had the most wonderful time and already have plans to return with the boy. 

See you again soon, Florence!

*Full post on the dinner and hotel stay coming this week, but a massive thank you to Ferragamo for such a magical experience!*

    Your photos are so beautiful! The Duomo must look amazing as you see it right in front of you. Italy is truly one of the most beautiful countries to me! I'm looking forwards to reading your post about the event – I've seen snippets of it in Alix's vlogmas, and it looked wonderful!

    Excited my life is back My husband and I have been together for almost 11 years in October. The way we met wasn’t the best way since we both had relationships. We ended our relationships to be together (or so I thought we BOTH did). As soon as I ended up pregnant with our first baby, I find out he was cheating with his EX! My world went upside down. It was very hard for me since I was pregnant and hurt. Over the years I just kept forgiving him over and over again of not only multiple affairs, but of his accusations of me being unfaithful and disrespecting me. We now have 3 kids and I just completely felt neglected and felt low of myself. I had my own affair… It has not been easy for BOTH of us to overcome. Somehow over the last few weeks we have been working together to move on. We are now moving out of state. I love my husband and I am positive he loves me. I am going to try and show him this approach. Somehow we were already doing it! We have a better communication than we’ve had in years! We are learning how to speak calmly out feelings and concerns. It hasn’t been peachy, but I can see that we both are starting to respect eachother. We care for each other’s feelings. We have US a main priority. We aren’t taking counseling, but somehow we see that little by little we seem more comfortable with eachother. Sometimes we may notice how good it is going and may step back, but helping eachother out by holding and saying it’s ok to be happy again. I love my family. and my husband and i need to keep my marriage save with him from other women so i have to seek for a love spell to keep our marriage stronger so i contacted Dr happy who help me to keep my marriage save and secure from other women am very happy today coz my husband love me more and more like ever before, we are living as one big family again bless Dr happy for what he did to me and my husband if you need help contact him too he is real and 100% guarantee ok so email him at : call +2348133873774 about his service and web site:
