THE TALE OF MY HEALTH SCARE (AKA THE FRIGHT OF MY LIFE)

CIAO, I’M OFF TO ITALY!

SADLY, I’m not moving there. But it’s totally true. Tomorrow I’m jetting off to Italy with my family to stay in the stunning Italian Lakes, courtesy of Bookings For You. We’ll be staying at Lake Maggiore, far North of the country and just five miles from the Swiss border, and I’ll be reviewing this beautiful family villa which boosts lake views, private terraces and stunning contemporary decor. *does a dance
