Summer Scrapbook part 1

Hello darlings,
Sorry for my absence, my holidays have started only a week ago, very later than expected, I spent some days in my summer home where I could relax.
My baggage included few things, light dresses and comfy shorts, no heels, passed my days getting up late in the morning, staying outdoors, and apart going to the sea to sunbath, during my parents' absense, enjoyed cooking fish dishes - it was the occasion to try simple and tasty recipes at my friends' expense! To tell the truth am a little disaster in kitchen and generally I cook only to survive...Ha Ha! - loved also taking care of the garden and the fruit trees and applied myself to improving my green fingers!
Only very late we went down in the village to have dinner and drink at the bar (skipped the club).
So peaceful habits, idleness, sleeps, no phones, no noises, just a lot of pleasant chats with friends in front of the view of the still sea, thanks to the location we enjoy on a little hill. And you, how are spending the vacations?

Here you have some random pictures, taken yesterday, of the things used to go to the sea: a see-through flower shirt, that's ideal to match with a cherry bandeau swimsuit or a yellow or green bikini (all La Perla), my beach towel and a rafia bag (bought on a Sicilian island last year) which I can totally fill with books - am alternating some pages of a classic detective story by Agatha Christie to an essay I had in mind to read - camera and sun creams.
Showed also the flat sandals I used for the village and the capacious blue bag (Furla) to go to the farmers' market to buy fresh bread and vegetables. I have fun going to the markets and talking with farmers, I find out always new things, am totally inexperienced and like learning all about organic products.
With the strong sun, during the day I never use make up, at night only a light illuminating tinted moisturizer by Elizabeth Arden, a thin layer of Dior blush, and a line of eye pencil to shade the eyes with rimmel. Essential for me is also paying much attention to clean perfectly the skin: to this purpose can't renounce to the Carita eau lactee, until now the best cleanser I've ever found out.

Talk to you soon!
Ciao belli!
