Well, it's finally finished! I've been working on this kit for a while. My inspiration? Freshness! Why? Cuz it's darn hot here and anything that makes you feel more fresh and cool is a welcomed escape. In the summer, nothing seems more fresh than a squeeze of lemon or lime in your drink... coke, iced tea, lemonade, heck I even had commenters add that they like it with vodka or tequila! Ha ha!
Need some freshness? Pop on over to my shop (www.bellastyledesigns.blogspot) today and get your squeeze on!

The bug has hit me and now I have this craving to be on Etsy all the time! So I figured, "Why not try my hand at selling my cards there?"... So I'm trying my hand at Etsying.
For now I've only added a few cards... I hate to commit a lot and find out in a short while that it's not for me. We'll see how it goes. So if you know anyone looking for invite or announcements, send them over to me! You can see the link to my Etsy shop on the right.

So I'm not an Etsy virgin anymore. Have you ever checked out some of the stuff on there? There's some pretty cool handmade stuff!
Ok, so the money I've made so far on the sale of my kits, I decided to get the girls some super cute new hats for this fall/winter. You gotta go check out this shop!
What's On A Name
She's got some super cute hats for kids!!! And, I did some searching on Etsy to try and decide what I wanted to get and I found her hats to be super cute and her pricing and shipping aren't outrageous!
So wanna see what I ordered?
This is for Isabella Super cute hey? And she has some other great stuff like tutus and jewellery.
Oh I can't wait till I get them in the mail!!!

I love this movie! It just makes me chuckle! And Helen and Julie make an awesome pair.. they are such brilliant actresses. I just love the whole idea of "it's so risque" and they say what the hell, we gotta raise some funds! Why not raise some eyebrows as well. If you haven't seen it... go rent it! It's such an awesome chick flick.

G had the day off yesterday so we headed for some shade and water... THE POOL!
There's a really nice pool at Fiorenzuola D'Arda. It's outside and has 2 great pools for kids. One is small and very shallow with some jets that bubble up water and the other has a big fountain thing and a hydromassage area where tiny jets bubble up water all over the place in one of the corners.
We packed apicnic and off we went. It's amazing how much cooler it feels near a pool! Little Isabella stayed in the pool over 3 hours! That's a long time for a little 2 year old. Sofia enjoyed the pool for a bit with mommy and then pooped out so we went to hang out in the shade and have a nap.... ok so I didn't get to nap cuz G and Isabella decided to come over and steal my chair... so much for reading that magazine I bought almost a month ago... again!
We had a snack, coffee, ice cream and then instead of Isabella pooping out, she wanted to go in the water again! This was the plee of an over tired child who wouldn't take no for an answer. Of course this time we gave in because it had been a while since we had been to the pool. Needless to say the pool time didn't last long and she was out before we got home. No suppy that night as she was too cranky... straight to bed. I admit, it was kind of nice not having to fight to get her to go to sleep for a change!

We decided to go visit G's sister and husband the other day. It was too hot to hide out in the house (and really, how much fun is that?) so we decided to head to the lake! (Ok, so that's really the only reason we went to visit anyways as we did intend to stay home and get some things finished around the house.) Off to Lago di Como.... yes I know you readers are asking yourselves..."Isn't that where George Clooney has a house?" Yes it is but not this part of the lake.... see the mountains in the picts... well he's on the other side of those. We didn't want to waste our day being hounded by paparazzi! haha! Just kidding.
