Hello again and Happy Autumn to everyone
My late summer holidays have came to an end and I am back now with a lot of Italy memories.
I will be doing several post from Italy as I visited many places and have lots of photos to show :)
Happiness Boutique Statement necklace
Just before I went on holidays, I received a present from Happiness Boutique, an online retailer from Germany that it has a huge selection of statement necklaces, earrings, bracelets and some clothes. Honestly, when Happiness Boutique asked me to choose one necklace to review, I just found really difficult to choose one because I loved them all.
The necklace arrived with a lovely card:
|My Sparkly Necklace came with this nice message|
You can get the necklace from HERE
|These are some examples of the lovely necklaces Happiness Boutique has|
|All their jewellery is delivered in lovely gift boxes|
So finally I selected a necklace that I could use with many outfits, a really sparkly necklace that it goes well with any colur and it makes the outfits look prettier and sparkly :)
The necklace is gorgeous, good quality, it really sparkles and it doesnt feel heavy, I am really plased with my choice and certainly you will see me more times with it as I love it.

Six places that you cannot miss if you visit Genoa
Sponsored by Happiness Boutique statement necklace
Genoa/Genova is the capital of Liguria and it is the sixth largest city in Italy, while the villages nearby are very small and with lovely beaches and lots of enjoyable nature, the city is an industrial center, with many historical buildings and the biggest port of Italy that it is the main part of the city.
1. Piazza de Ferrari
In the main center of Genova, you can find the Piazza de Ferrari with the large Red Fountain which is the symbolic heart of the city.
2. St Lorenzo Cathedral
A beautiful black and white marble striped Romanesque Cathedral finished in the 17th Century. The facade and the many columns and arches inside are impressive, as are the frescoes on the ceiling.
3. Church of Gesu in Piazza Matteotti
This church did not call my atention at first but when I visited the interior, I found that it was impresive, it is the most beautiful church I have seen in Liguria, it contains paintings by Rubens and Guido Reni.
4. Via Garibaldi:
This is a very nice street, formerly known as Strada Nuova, is lined with palaces built in the 16th and 17th centuries for Genoa's leading families, private residences that the nobles were required to make available for royality, now they have been tourned into art galleries, banks and offices. The palaces are still largely intact.
5. Port of Genoa
This is the biggest port in Italy and it stretchs for over 22 kilometres along the coastline.
If you have time in Genova, the Aquarium is a recomended place to visit.
|Many Mediterranean cruises stop in Genoa, I would love to do a cruise in a boat like this one!|
6. Views from CastellettoCastelletto is a residential part of Genoa, it occupies a hilly area which, until the 17th century, it was outside the city walls.
You can easily reach this place with a public lift from Piazza Portello, in the city center and have panoramic views of the city, almost a 360 degrees view as you can see the port, the old city with his grey slate roofs and up to the East and West parts of the Riviera Ligure.
