Picturesque Bergamo

Views of Bergamo where we stayed just outside of Milan for the Furniture Fair. The old town was very beautiful and traditional Italian architecture. The Duomo in Bergamo had a very intricately painted ceiling which was mesmerising!

Finally I have found my Tea Set!

For such a long time I have been looking for a nice tea set as a belated 21st present. I eventually chose the set above 'Provence Flowers' as it is colourful and pretty from Cath Kidston.

Liberty's London

I also visited one of my favourite places for inspiration this weekend... Liberty's. Again it didn't fail to capture my interest and I even bought a top from their Target collection. I fell in love with it as its a classic 60's print and really funky. They have also covered one of the outside walls in one of the classic prints to celebrate the collection.
I also saw these dog mannequins in the window of Banana Republic and loved the array of different sized dogs.

A Trip to London Zoo

For my next project I am going to look at Anita Roddick and all of her work that she did for the rainforest to stop its destruction. At London Zoo a new enclosure has just opened called 'Rainforest Life' which consists of a rain forest atmosphere which the viewers can walk into and experience this rainforest climate in London. It contains real rain, is very humid and has over 1000 inhabitants including monkeys, sloth and an armadillo. My favourite animal to watch was the Emperor monkeys with white beards playing in the trees. The sloths were also amazing to watch as they spend their life slowly climbing around upside down! The iguana was also really cool sunbathing! London Zoo was better than I was expecting and the rainforest enclosure was facinating as you could get so close to the animals, I would recomend anyone to visit but do search around for a 2 for 1 voucher as ticket prices are a little bit pricey!
