The first step is admitting you have a problem, right?

The Bollywood Church {Rome}



This is one of my favorite churches in Rome

All unrestrained Baroque excess. Rich and lush and over the top. Kind of like a Bollywood film.

Beer and Burgers {Rome}



I was running some errands across the river in Prati the other day and passed by this spot in Piazza Risorgimento. Ever in search of a good hamburger in Rome, it was near enough to lunchtime so I stopped.

Autumn Escape {Ostia in November}



I am a summer girl. When the days grow shorter and colder I can't help but long for the August heat and a day spent at Da Adolfo.


There are a great many good things about living in Rome. Being close to the sea and mild weather are two of my favorites.

Dining with stars {Metamorfosi + Rome}



Roughly every three years or so, Dear Husband and I have lunch together during the week.   

Metamorfosi has long been on to try list, but the list of excuses was longer. It's in Parioli, a part of town I rarely venture too. It's quite fancy and gourmet and and DH is about as far from a foodie as a person can be, yadda, yadda, yadda. I just hadn't gotten around to it.

Sunshine, Pasta and Books {Da Enzo + Rome}



My pal Estelle was in town recently presenting her newly published book Finding Rome on the Map of Love.  

She arrived a few days before her events and we managed to spend a luxuriously long day catching up with coffee in sunny piazzas and browsing in favorite bookstores and most importantly enjoying some real Roman food, Something Estelle doesn't see much of in Geneva.

Zuppe {Books and Soup in Rome}



It is time to start thinking about Christmas gifts. Or hostess gifts, (like for example, the Thanksgiving feasts you are traveling to). The new cookbook Zuppe is the perfect choice. It is small, pretty AND supports a good cause.  Just go ahead and stock up and you are set for birthdays throughout the year.

Bright Lights - Big City {Museums in Rome}



My pal Elizabeth has been taking these really great pictures on Instagram of Italian neon signs. I love typography, I love neon. it's a perfect combination.

If you love these things too, you have a few more days to see a really terrific exhibit at the Macro Museum
