Italy + Vespas + Racing + Dreamboat = win

When I was in Italy last month with The Girl we looked at renting a scooter and touring around Florence and environs. Opted not to because it was crazy expensive and I told her I'd take her for a ride up PCH on my own (nicer) motorcycle and if she didn't live in Newport she would think it was totally rad 2 the max instead of hot and alternating between boring/scary. I don't regret not renting the scooter but when I go back to Italy I will plan ahead and do it. Because Italy does scooters (and motorcycles) right.

Here's video evidence of a Vespa race in Torino where they do a lap on the top of the old Fiat manufacturing building. So awesome. The ladies might want to stick around until skip to the 1:28 mark to see some ridiculously handsome Italian guy say something about riding Vespas in chic italian clothes and effortlessly stealing your girlfriend. Ciao, bella! Actually I'm not sure what he says because it's in Italian but I'm probably pretty close.
Thanks to HFL for the video, and Red Bull for sponsoring the event.

I Christian Louboutin Shoescame across these pretty Christian Louboutin Shoessandals while I Christian Louboutin Bootswas searching for a pair of pink thong sandals for summer. Even though I was initially searching for more of a fuchsia shade, I was totally smitten with these soft pink thongs onceChristian Louboutin Pumps I saw them. In addition to featuring faux pearls, tiny beads, and rhinestones (all of which I adore), these adorable flat sandals have a great design that, thanks to the skimpy Christian Louboutin Sandalsnature of the straps, is easy to pair with casual clothes, as well as slightly-dressier outfits. Available in steel and gold metallic, these high heel sandals ring up at just under $100 per pair.
