Our first ever international Guest Blogger joins us this week with a special report from Milan design week!  Say hello to Alessandra Caprini from Perugia, Italy!

This week marks a bit of a milestone for TDF as we welcome our first ever international guest blogger, Italian stylist / journalist Alessandra Caprini!  Alessandra contacted us a little while ago about contributing to the Guest Blog - and with Milan design week on the horizon, it seemed the perfect opportunity!  Alessandra travelled to Milan 2 weeks ago to attend the annual event, and will be sharing her favourite finds all this week on the Guest Blog!  Yayyy thanks so much Alessandra!

We asked Alessandra to give us a little background about herself - and I must admit I couldn't bring myself to edit her sweet response!  -

Something about me: my name is Alessandra, I'm 31 years old and I live in Perugia, a little nice city in the heart of Italy.  I'm a freelance stylist and journalist, a cool hunter, a polaroid and lomography lover... I'm design addicted, curious traveller, vegetarian and ecologist, but I don't like strawberries!!!  I'm in love with Luca and now we renew our beautiful home.  I love vintage style... I also create jewels and hair accessories with old buttons, with my friend Elisa!  My last passion is paper craft and collages... I have always some new ideas to do! My blog is Design Your Life, but now I write a new blog for all spring period, a new project called Let You Spring.

I am loving her sweet writing style and at times slightly imperfect English!  You can almost hear her voice as you read... :)

HUGE THANKS to Alessandra for all her amazing work this week!  Do pop over to the Guest Blog each day to see what she has discovered in Milano!  And don't forget to pay her a little visit at Design Your Life too!
