A Passport to Celebrate the Glamour of Italian Fashion at Westfield Competition

The Italian Trade Commission teamed up with Westfield Shopping Centre for an amazing competition linked with Italian brands with stores at the London Shopping centre. From today the 18th of July until the 27th of July visit the stores mentioned in the short video and pick up a passport from one of them. The fun starts after this. You visit at least three shops, it is not compulsory to buy but if you do there are special offers in store. Then when you 've got at least three stamps post the passport in the special box at Ca'puccino (and given that you are there enjoy delicious food and a Spritz). www.ca-puccino.com
It is imperative to answer the question as well as having the stamps. For example at Kiko, where the cosmetics are very good and very affordable, it will be hard not to buy at least one thing, their range of nail varnish is endless. www.kikocosmetics.co.uk If you go to Geox there will be a 50% discount and a glass of prosecco if you buy anything from the store, their shoes are gorgeous. www.geox.co.uk Brands like Calzedonia www.calzedonia.it/en  and Intimissimi, which are already very popular in UK are participating as well. www.intimissimi.com  Pop in in order to have your passport stamped and indulge in some shopping, because what it's in store really is tempting.
Look for this, it is the passport you will need to participate in the competition. Prizes are fantastic and all made in Italy.  A gorgeous Fly scooter by Piaggio, a flight to Milan plus a double room at the Melia Hotel in Milan for 2 people, a beautiful Pilot jacket by Pal Zileri, a jacket that doesn't crease. As well a dinner or lunch for 4 people at Ca'puccino in Westfield or King's Road and the final prize is the V&A book  " The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014" about the V&A exhibition. So go to Westfield, spend an afternoon browsing, shopping, enjoying a drink and you might be lucky and be a winner as well. www.uk.westfield.com/london

Freya Swimwear

The weather is still great and holidays are approaching  more and more. So what's best that revamp our suitcase adding a new bikini or two? Freya Swimwear has got great models, bright prints and cups up to JJ.
The Tootsie model with its poppy red check reminds me of a 1950s pin up girl. The bandeau bikini top goes up to GG cup like the under wired bikini top and the tankini. Briefs are either classic like in the picture or fold, which is great if you want to keep your midriff covered or not.
The Cherish model in lime is adorable with its white pleats and tiny buttons. It is very flattering with the halter bikini top cups going up to G and the bandeau bikini top  going up to size GG. There is also a warm jade colour which is great on darker complexions.
I like from the Samara  model the scarf tie detail on the briefs. The black background with the kaleidoscope print is stunning and the bikini top goes up to size GG while the halter bikini goes to size F. At Freya Swimwear you will find fantastic prints and models that flatter your body shape while supporting it.
Bright coral and a crochet design for the Spirit model. Available also in black and indigo, there is a lovely tunic which can be used as a cover up or mini dress  with sizes up to L and a choice of tops with a halter neck model, sweetheart padded top and bandless tankini. The briefs are classic, or Brazilian style tie side or a skirted brief, all of them going up to XL size. I like the beads knotted on the strings. If you go online at www.freyaswimwear.com you can locate your nearest store and treat yourself to something nice for your next holiday.
