Seems a bit weird to do a summer lookbook seeing we're now fast approaching winter, but if you're anything like me, the colder it gets outside the more you're craving hot weather. This is a lookbook I filmed in Sicily and I'll soon share the pictures as well. Save it for your next summer vacation or just imagine how beautiful it would be to lounge on the beach. Honestly can't wait for the next beach holiday, but while we dream about that check out my lookbook and let me know your favorite season.

Who's excited for Black Friday? Only me?! No, can't be! I love Black Friday shopping, it's the perfect opportunity to get some of the items on your wishlist at an amazing price, as well as a great excuse to start Christmas shopping for your loved ones. Since we're in Black Friday week, and nowadays brands have sale all week long rather than just the Friday or next Monday, for Cyber Monday, it's the best time to share my fave deals. None of these are sponsored, just sharing the love. Since you're following me or reading my blog, you might enjoy a similar fashion style and enjoy all these. Hope you love these and happy shopping!

As promised I'm back with a surprise, hopefully a pleasant one! Thrilled to report that I've posted my first YouTube video in almost two years and that from now on you can expect a new YouTube post from me every Thursday at 6.30pm GMT. Since I've been missing for so long from the YouTube scene, it felt nice to take the time for a rambling video and chat with you all about what's been happening, do a life update. I hope you enjoy this video and are excited for what's to come! Make sure to subscribe and let me know what you'd like to see next.

For years my posting schedule was Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This changed in 2018 due to personal matters, which led to me struggling to keep up with this schedule. I've also been MIA for a while and posted rarely, if at all. Starting with March 2020 I had made it a goal to post at least bi-weekly, which was a very relaxed version of my previous schedule. But it worked for me, hopefully for any long-time readers as well. As I'm slowly getting the hang of it again, I want to challenge myself to a new schedule. Not as demanding as my previous one, but more engaging than the one we had so far this year. So here it is, out into the world with enthusiasm, expect posts Monday and Thursday! Eek! It's out there now and I'm excited for what is coming. Will keep this schedule until the end of the year and then we can rethink it. Until then hope you're as excited as I am and see you Thursday for a surprise! Can you guess what it will be?

Do you remember the first time you went to the seaside? A lot of us might have gone when we were too young to remember, but do you have in mind the first time you were conscious of the experience? I remember being at the seaside as a child, playing in the sand with my sister, jumping in the water when there were waves, staying there until my fingers got pruned and I was freezing. My love for the sea beat my love for warmth and comfort, I just wanted to be a mermaid and snorkel, experience all the beautiful sea life. 

As I've said so many times before, I'm a summer baby. Not just because I was born in summer, but because my soul loves the summer time. Being in any environment with water brings me tremendous joy, just like when I was a child. It's my happy place. The only major thing that changed is my courage to go into cold water. Don't care for that anymore. Even so, if I'm on a boat trip I will always jump in the water as many times as I'm given the chance. I love everything about the seaside. Listening to the waves, the salty smell of the sea, the feeling of sand between my toes, the water on my skin, it's all just pure bliss. So tell me, what is your favorite part of beach holidays?

I've been on a foodie kick lately, trying to recreate a lot of Italian recipes from my summer holiday in Sicily. With that in mind I wanted to share an Italian food diary post from that trip. Usually wouldn't post two food posts one after the other, but we all need a bit of mid-week comfort food inspiration. As you kow Italian is one of my favorite cuisines and food cultures. And like most people, I could have that every day without getting bored, which I did when I lived in Italy.

Foolishly, I have deleted most pictures of my meals in India and only have 4 left. Not sure how that even happened seeing how many food pictures I have in my phone, but must have saved my favorite four. Since I was keen to share more, I decided to add a few from the Berlin trip. Loved all the dishes in the pictures and would love to recreate some of them. Let's bring back #CookingWithCari on the blog. I've brought it back on Instagram on stories, so until make sure to have a look there and follow. 

Have a pink-tastic day!
