I adore Italy...can't get enough of it! I've already stopped off at Venice and Bari this summer and now I'm doing something I love even more - an end of summer holiday! We booked in June and I've been looking forward to this all summer.  I'm going with two of my friends from university, we had a legendary trip to Istanbul after our finals and we've regrouped to explore the Sorrento peninsula.  We're flying into Naples, but will be based in Sorrento and from there will explore the Amalfi coast (the southern side of the peninsula, Positano, Ravello, Pompeii and the islands of Capri and Ischia.   I cannot wait, and hopefully we'll get some chill time too, the hotel has a lovely pool and is very high up with a lovely view, much like in the painting above.

Last year you may remember I went on a Greek island odyssey from mid to the end of September and it was amazing to get away just as summer was packing away it's playthings, the nights were getting longer and the trees changing colour.  

If you typically holiday in July or August, I highly recommend putting next year's off to the end of summer.  No point wasting good decent British sunshine (when we get it) during our prime months - stay at home and jet off when all your colleagues are coming home with holiday blues! 

I've got some fantastic guest bloggers lined up for you over the next week, alternated with Beauty Blogger Inquisitions, to let you get to know some of my favourite bloggers a little better, so things will be relatively lively over here.  I've also revived my Beauty Blogger Inquisition series, which I plan to make into a weekly or fortnightly feature.

I hope you all have an amazing week - see you when I get back x
