TRAVELS - Val Gardena into the nature!

Click here for the Italian version.

Last week I left the hot city for the wonderful Val Gardena's mountains! It was my first attempt at trekking, it has been really demanding but I liked it!
I've always loved nature, I think that spending time into the nature is the best medicine - and sometimes the solution - for every problem. When I'm alone in the nature I recharge my strengths and I remember to myself  how beautiful is to be surprised by its beauties.
This video is my first experiment as director, is the first time I make somethings like this on my own and I've done my best!
I love watching videos on vimeo and youtube and I've always wanted to make one! I finally did it!!
I hope you can enjoy the wonderful landscapes I've seen, hopefully it will be the first of a looong series!
I'll also share some photos we've taken during the week soon.

Weekly inspirations - Six

Click here for the Italian version.

This week has been full of stuff to do! Next Monday I'll finally leave the city for one week, I'm going to Val Gardena, a location in the Italian Alps, with my boyfriend and some friends of mine, I can't wait!! I really need some fresh air and relax!
Although my week was very busy I've found the time to write something on my to do list!
These are my weekly inspirations:

LET'S PARTY: I love this pinata idea! At DIY Studio web site you can read the step by step tutorial!
My little nephew is going to celebrate his second birthday in October, I absolutely want to realize a little pinata for him!

ILLUSTRATION: The illustration is the cover of "I can see just fine" book. The whole book, that tells the story of a little girl who needs glasses, is illustrated by Eric Barclay. I like Eric's illustrations, he paints also on little appliances (like toaster) or Coca-Cola bottles!

DIY: The first time I saw these cocktail party invitations at Oh Happy Day website I immediately fell in love with them! You know, I LOVE flamingo and these invitations are absolutely perfect!You can find the free printable file at this link!

TYPOGRAPHY: It's is beautiful! Live it with love! La vie est belle.

INTERIOR DESIGN: Don't you think that the wall pattern is wonderful, isn't it? I love the geometry and the colors! But the feature I like the most is the combination between the wood tables and the metallic chairs. 

YUM: Raspberries sorbet inside half a lemon...superyummy!!Unfortunately I can't find the recipe but I think the idea is fantastic!

I love ending my weekly inspirations with ideas for yummy recipes! This makes me want to stand up and immediately go to the kitchen to cook some delicious dishes!

Have a wonderful weekend!
