I stayed from Friday to Monday.
Unfortunately when I arrived it was raining and it rained everyday but we were really lucky to have a sunny Monday, the day we went for a small trip in the city centre!
We stopped at some nice shops and I had to go to see the famous Ladurée! I bought some macarons, of course! I got this lovely paper bag that I think I'm going to use very carefully ;)
Please visit also my new website www.chiaweb.it and leave a comment :)
One of my many activities is making websites.
A friend of mine asked me to realize the new website of his clothing shop, called "Dandy".
During the making of the website he asked me also to draw a design for the shoppers that was "connected" with the website!
So, following his ideas and favourite colours, I've made some sketches:
My friend decided to produce the following one:
And... now you can see the result!!! THEY ARE REAL!!!
Do you like them??? I actually love them and use them everyday!!! :D
This is the store website www.dandysas.com
Last month I gave my boyfriend a present, a computer bag by Piquadro. I got a Mandarina shopper instead of a Piquadro one! I didn't mind that because usually the Mandarina bags are nice.
This one is really BIG!
It's a paper bag with yellow rope grips.
I'm sure it will be helpful when I need to carry big things!!!
More info about Mandarina Duck
Last weekend I went shopping! My arms were hurting... I had so many shoppers to carry!
But this time to be honest none of them were nice enough to be put in this blog!
I went to:
. H&M - we all know their shoppers are not special...
. LEVI'S - brown paper bag with the logo...
. COIN - maybe I could give this a small place here... just because it's black and fuchsia!
. DEN STORE - like the Levi's one!
Waiting for next shopping for more beautiful shoppers!!!! :)
Anyway at H&M I bought a dress that I can't wait to wear!
This time I bought 2 dresses, one for winter and one for summer! But you know what I have to talk about here... the shopper!
I got this colourful plastic shopper with 2 different prints on the sides.
On one side there's a girl and on the other a man, both with glasses. It looks like a bit geeky for me! I like it! Most of all the pattern on the man's shirt.
You can find more info on the following links:
A lovely friend of mine went to Berlin in January for the Fashion Week.
She's been so kind to bring me home 3 shoppers! Here they are:
The Ecobag by Germano made in Italy
I really like this bag because it's like it's made of wool and during this cold days I use it a lot to keep "warm" my extra things that I can't put inside my real bag!
I also like the colours combination...
The Desigual black shopper
I already have a Desigual shopper but this is a bit different, the one I got from Madrid just have the name on it with wonderful colours, this one explains the customer what's about Desigual brand, the key word DREAM. It says to me: "in a dark world you can make colourful dreams with us!"
The RAER jeans shopper
I can't believe this is NOT a real bag!
I really like it and I'm pretty sure I'll use it a lot next summer to go to the beach!
It is really long so I think I'm going to do a small knot to make it a bit shorter! It says "bag recycle, bag restyle"... is it made by left over jeans pieces? I'm going to find out... I would be great! Don't you think?
Please feel free to leave a comment :)
Last summer I spent 12 days on the Elba Isle, in Tuscany. I don't think it's known as well as the Tuscany region itself, but it's a really nice place where to spend some holidays!
Before I left I wanted to take with me a "souvenir" that would remind me of the sun, the beach and the freshness of that place. So I decided to buy an Eau de Parfume called "Elba's water", I'm happy I bought it! It smells so good.
Of course with the EDP I got this tiny cute shopper, with the colours that remind me of Elba Isle.
Maybe you know Intimissimi... it's an Italian brand for underwear and comfy clothes.
I go shopping there quite often, when i find something that I like I usually buy it in every colour they have... so I shoudn't be surprised by the amount of bag I have by Intimissimi!!!
They are paper shoppers so quite easy to ruin or break, but I really like the colours, outside and inside! In the pics you can see also the inside... lovely...!
This shopper doesn't need loads of explanations... Desigual is a Spanish clothes brand known for its colours and unique patterns.
I went to Madrid last year on May and I had to stop in this shop in the centre of the city, near Puerta del Sol. Very nice shop assistants and great clothes and accessories!
I was very happy to walk around the city with this beautiful and handy shopper on my shoulder!
Yesterday I went to a shop called AMA in my hometown Cento and I bought 3 pairs of leggings (they are so comfy!) But that’s not the point… The sale assistant put them inside a cute plastic shopper decorated with white lace: when I saw it I couldn’t help myself and I said “What a nice shopper!”
Fortunately I didn’t say it loudly and she didn’t hear me
So here it is the “White Lace Shopper”!
This is a quite big paper bag! It's from a Restaurant near the place where I work, it's called Grassa Gallina (Fat hen) Osteria e Bottega di Paese (Local Restaurant and shop).
I got this bag when I bought presents for some friends: teas and mugs.
The food here is really good there are 2 menus, one is from Gandma Iole and the other from Simone the owner. Traditional food with some new ideas! I come here for special occasions and when friends come to visit me.
The logo of the Restaurant is on the side.
As you can see, on the shopper there are the Grannys of the owners with kitchen tools and high heels! So funny :)
"The centre of the world is where we feel at home"
This is written in the back of this nice bag from THUN and it's by the founder "Contessa Lene Thun".
I got this bag after buying some Christmas presents for my mum and a friend who just had a baby.
This is the number 3 of a limited edition series!
It's nice and helpful when you need to carry books and heavy stuff because it's confortable if you put it on your shoulder!

more to come!
Tra le conduttrici c'è una Chiara!!! :)
Chiara Gamberale (Roma, 27 aprile 1977) è una scrittrice, conduttrice radiofonica e conduttrice televisiva italiana. Figlia del noto manager Vito Gamberale, laureata al DAMS di Bologna con una tesi in storia del cinema, ottiene la ribalta in campo letterario quando, poco più che maggiorenne, pubblica il romanzo Una vita sottile (1999), ispirato a una vicenda autobiografica e da cui viene presto tratta una fortunata versione televisiva. Seguono Color lucciola (2001) e Arrivano i pagliacci (2003).
A partire dal 2002, ha cominciato a lavorare come autrice e conduttrice televisiva. Su Rai 3 ha condotto Parola mia, su Rai Uno Gap e, di nuovo sulla terza rete, Quarto Piano Scala a Destra, programma di cui era anche ideatrice. Dal 2005 al 2008 è stata autrice e conduttrice su Radio 24, della trasmissione Trovati un bravo ragazzo.
Nel 2008 riceve Premio Campiello (Selezione Giuria dei Letterati) per il libro La zona cieca.
Collabora con La Stampa, il Riformista e Vanity Fair.
Dal gennaio 2010 conduce Io, Chiara e l'Oscuro su Rai Radio 2.
Non conosco i suoi libri ma, curiosa come sono, cercherò di leggerli.
Il suo programma:
Io, Chiara e l'Oscuro è una trasmissione radiofonica in onda sulle frequenze di Radio 2.
La trasmissione nasce nel gennaio del 2010, per mandato di Flavio Mucciante che chiama in Rai Chiara Gamberale con l'obiettivo di trasferire in radio il mood dei suoi romanzi.
Il programma ha una premessa: Chiara viene abbandonata dal suo analista dopo 19 anni di terapia, quindi in ogni puntata si svolge una seduta d'analisi collettiva insieme agli ascoltatori (denominati "psico-ascoltatori") condotta dalla stessa Chiara Gamberale e dalle tre voci che la compongono (la testa, il corpo ed il cuore) che, in una sorta di terapia di gruppo trattano i temi d'attualità partendo dalle contraddizioni del singolo individuo. Gli ascoltatori, invitati a partecipare tramite telefonate in diretta, sono una componente essenziale della trasmissione.
Ogni tanto anche io divento teledipendente ma raramente guardo i canali mediaset...
Anche ieri sera fortunatamente li ho evitati e grazie a Chiara Negro Cusa ho avuto la conferma di aver fatto la scelta giusta!
Dalla sua biografia:
Nata in provincia di Milano nel 1985, dove vive tuttora e prosegue la sua esistenza da orgogliosa “teledipendente”. Il cinema e, soprattutto, la televisione sono le sue passioni. Dopo la Laurea Triennale in Linguaggi dei Media (classe Scienze della Comunicazione), ha proseguito gli studi presso l’Università Cattolica di Milano, percorso terminato da pochissimo con il conseguimento della Laurea Magistrale in Filologia Moderna grazie ad una tesi sulla critica televisiva di Beniamino Placido (relatore Chiar.mo prof. Giorgio Simonelli). Approda a “Lanostratv.it” dopo aver già collaborato con il blog “Formattv.it” ed è prontissima a cimentarsi in questa nuova esperienza professionale!
Devo dire che ho almeno una buona ragione per apprezzare il tanto odiato/amato digitale terrestre... E' un canale che si chiama La7d dove viene trasmesso uno dei miei programmi preferiti: Cuochi e Fiamme!
Molti di voi penseranno che è il solito programma con due concorrenti che devono preparare piatti ed una guria che giudica...
Sì, diciamo che il format è questo ma sono i protagonisti che lo rendono davvero unico!
Tra questi c'è anche Chiara Maci, blogger di Sorelle in pentola: onestamente non conoscevo questo blog culinario prima di vedere Chiara nel programma, ma prometto di visitarlo con cura anche perché in comune non abbiamo solo il nome ma anche la città di provenienza! Bologna :)
Ed ecco una ricettina primaverile dal blog: Sedanini alla cantonese
Leggendo il suo blog posso dire che lei è una mamma ed una grande disegnatrice! Stavo cercando un libro da acquistare come regalo e ho visto che lei ha fatto un sacco di libri per bambini!
Potete trovare i suoi libri qui.
Spero di essere in grado di acquistare uno (o più) dei suoi libri!
Chiara gestisce un blog chiamato http://www.chiaranocentini.it/ sulla sua vita ed è pieno di disegni colorati :)
I disegni sono davvero belli ed i post divertenti!!
If you don't understand Italian you can use google translator
Grazie per la foto Chiara!!! :)
Thanks to the web I got the chance to "meet" interesting girls that have something in common with me... the name!
My idea is to support them showing the world what they do and why they are so special.
I hope you'll enjoy all my Chiaras!!!!! :)
I have to thank Sara for letting me know about this Company in her blog!
I really love unique items and these shoppers/bags are really amazing!
They are made from used nautical sails, so they are very strong and waterproof!
It's possibile to buy them on-line at
Uhm.... I can't decide... :D
I felt in love with this shop right after a friend of mine told me about it.
Last year I went to Elba Isle, a small nice isle near Tuscany, where you can find quite beaches, nightlife and mountains!
I've visited a small town called Marciana, a small place in the mountain zone of Elba Isle.
The town is really lovely, full of small shops where you can find handmade jams, ceramics and shoes.
Enetring the shop, you'll find different kind of products, some are inspired by an old fashioned world, other by a fantasy world. A unique world is inside this small shop.
For more information and pictures you can visit www.unzipo.it .
I knew about MosMea through Facebook and I think their bags are so lovely :)
The bags are categorized by size: small, big and clutches.
There are a few models in different colours.
I you like a bag you should buy it as soon as possible! They run out of stock quickly.
The prices are really good, you don't have to spend a lot of money to have a unique bag!
Further information and where to buy:
Let's start with a man!
I knew Patrick Createur through a contest held by Laura (The Vogue Advisor) .
He makes beautiful headbands! Different shapes, colours and dimensions, he can do by request, too.
I love headbands, they can put something special on an everyday outfit :)
You can contact him on his facebook profile.
I've decided to open this blog in order to collect in a proper way all the things that I find looking around places and websites, regardind fashion of course!
The handmade world is really big! Some things are really good, so I'd like to share with you what I like, love, adore and would like to have of course!
I really hope you'll enjoy my blog and feel free to leave a comment :)
