CONTINENTALE -Florence, Italy

Hmmm how do you say woweeeee in italian? :) After watching "under the tuscan sun" i have imagined moving to italy, having my own garden patch in our backyard, joakim has a gorgeous sun-lit room to paint in and we live on the money selling home made delicious bread and paintings we sell at the local market...ahhh dreams.... :)

well here's another dream.....staying at this gorgeous hotel in florence italy... i think the interior is just ok but wow look at the view of the gorgeous scenery out the windows and from the rooftop gazebo.

Room rates set you back a cool S$450 a night...

Check out reviews of the hotel here.

Better Sleep!

I need quality sleep and i'm not getting any!! We get to bed by 12.30am and i usually don't fall asleep till 1am so i'm usually either zombified the next day or extremely grumpy.

I can't quite blame my dear husband because it's not his fault that i just can't sleep without him by my side. I get annoyed with him but then again he's staying up to finish some work, of which all payment proceeds usually get spent on me (hehehehe!!). So i thought a good idea would be for him to do his work in bed on his laptop and i get to sleep earlier...what i need now is a sleep mask to get it nice and dark!

All masks from www. and
