Genova. I've never been before, so when a day trip with the family was suggested, I was without hesitation. The drive was so scenic with snow capped mountain looming on one side, and sparkling mediterranean on the other side. The city is set on mountainous terrain that sweeps into a large port, but its the old buildings wrapped in modern highways that is the bizarre sight to my eyes. I have done my fair share of exploring the globe, and new sites are always going to be fascinating, but when you have no pictures in your memory bank to compare new places, the feeling is aliveness.
The aquarium, the point of the trip, is the largest in Europe - I have to highlight that it is barely half the size of the modest Melbourne aquarium. 2 bored dolphins, a few small sharks and seals, and a range of tropical fish made up the inhabitants. Its nice to see the emphasis on the environment, because elsewhere in Italy it barely exists - but the largest in Europe was hard to believe.
Docked port side of the Aquarium was The restored ship of Christopher Columbus. It is a spectacular sight to behold - almost comical surrounded by million dollar yachts, and the giant glass sphere containing fauna and birdlife. With daylight savings over, the day was not nearly enough. I look forward to another visit

My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!


The 18th annual Splendour in the Grass Music and Arts Festival kicked off during the coldest week of winter. But that didn't stop the fever of fun and fashion expression for festival revellers. This year was the first year we were not officially working on site for GLOTATTS (we worked tirelessly leading up at pre festival parties and events) We continued sponsorship with little glitter & tattoo stations set up throughout - most notably at Little Splendour - a festival within the festival specifically for our young ones - which my girls enjoyed tremendously! DAY I looks were provided by the wonderful HER PONY THE LABEL team. Day II outfits were from the new Spell & the Gypsy Collective range. By Day III we were footloose and fancy free, opting to highlight our GLOTATTS sparkles with threads of our own choosing. I wore a gorgeous burnt ochre linen dress by Brazilian Flirting
