Buona Pasqua!

Luke and I arrived back from Italy on Friday and I have to say, I have fallen in love with Sorrento and the Bay of Naples. So beautiful. We were only there for the week and managed to cram in trips to Pompei, Herculaneum and Vesuvius, as well as popping across to Capri on the Hydrofoil. Pompei and Herculaneum are probably the most incredible places I've ever been - The photos I've taken don't even do the place justice. The whole site is a lot LOT bigger than I expected and when you're there you're just captivated by the whole feel of it. I'm going to talk much more about it and the rest of my Italy trip in the posts to come in the next week or so - I have so much to share! For now, though, I will say that it was truly one of the best holidays I've ever had and I would highly recommend a trip to Italy and the Bay of Naples in particular - Sorrento is just beautiful.

On the second day there we took an exploratory trip up along the cliff and down the other side, eventually finding ourselves at a very quiet and beautiful bay, tucked in behind some rocks on which some old roman ruins can be found! An amazing find, and an incredibly picturesque setting. I couldn't resist a little outfit post, given on how my Rotherham backdrops are nowhere near this pretty!

Midi Dress, Belt, Shoes - Primark. Box Bag, Headscarf - Vintage. Retro Camera Necklace - Little Rachael. Ring - Italy.

I've deliberately done no photo editing whatsoever on these photos, they're exactly as they were taken so you can see the natural beauty of my surroundings. Such an amazing place, I wish I was still there!

More to come soon, I hope you've all enjoyed Easter Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday - back to work tomorrow for me :-(
