Capri is one of my all time favorite islands. What's not to love? Chic people, great food, fabulous shopping, stunning views, sparkling water, and warm Italians.
Capri with Kelly is a no brainer. She and I are good travel companions… a lazy breakfast poolside, a dip in the pool, a jaunt in town to shop, a delicious lunch, a boat ride around the island. We laugh hysterically, we share each other’s tears, and ultimately we enjoy every minute we spend gaining the five pounds together.
So if I can’t be in Capri with George, Liam or Jake…at least I’m in Capri with a like minded friend.
Come on my adventure..
Our first outing once we settle in and our last outing before departing the island...and usually a few more times during our stay - the incomparable Aurora Restaurant.
|My favorite, we ate there 4 times!|
|Seriously the best pizza I have ever tasted. The crust is so thin it's barely a crisp. Add white cheese, capers and black olives...spice it up with crushed red peppers soaked in olive oil. YUMMMMM|
|Do you think I look fat in this scarf? Maybe I should skip Pizza tomorrow.....|
|Or just cover myself in leopard and surrender...Meooow|
Off on a boat ride around the island...
|Look, I'm just like Jackie!|
|Entrance by boat to La Fontelina|
|Kelly at La Fontelina.|
|Shops tucked away on little streets....|
|Look at these candles....GORGEOUS!|
|Carthusia soaps and perfumes are typically Italian, light and floral...|
|I love checking out brands of makeup not available in America...|
|Finally broke down and bought a bag...this weekender is super chic and monogrammed and will come in handy carrying home my souvenirs!|
|Evening has begun....|
|I spy chic-ness on the terrace!|
|Excuse my evil eyes...ready for dinner...|
Da Paulina, another favorite restaurant, set amongst and within a lemon grove. The trees create a pergola of beauty!
In the "all you can eat" dessert buffet, there was a big glass bowl filled with these tins of gum. Yes, I grabbed a handful and stuffed my little clutch. How could I resist? Hermes, Dolce, LV and Chanel!
Next stop Corfu....
