Best of July – in words and pictures!

July is always a weird month. Normally it’s extremely hot, and yet you have to work as holidays (which I normally take in August) are not here yet. Well, this year things were completely different!

七月对我来说总是有些叫人郁闷的,天气炎热,假期又还没到(我通常八月休假)。不过,今年的七月却给了我惊喜!

I spent three amazing weeks in Italy – first my hometown, Rome, then Puglia for one of my best friends’ gorgeous wedding, then Rome again for my sister’s graduation.

原定的假期提前啦,虽然排的满满地,但是假期嘛,总是让人兴奋的。辗转于罗马—普利亚—罗马,回家于家人团聚——参加最好朋友的婚礼—参加妹妹的毕业典礼,这个七月注定像夏日的阳光一样灿烂。

Rome is always nice – I love to meet up with friends and family and catch up about latest news from both sides. And let’s not even mention food and shopping… Had some of the best pasta in my life and bought some beautiful beachwear you might have seen on my Instagram page (@chiaramariasassu).

家总是好的。回到罗马与家人朋友团聚,一起八卦,一起购物,去吃我最爱的pasta,简直不能更好。噢,也许你已经在我的instagram上(账号@chiaramariasassu)看到我买的新的泳衣了,哈哈。

But Puglia was the real highlight of this Italian trip. I’ve been to the most amazing resort in Salento – Le Capase. A wonderful building nestled on top of a cliff, from which you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the Strait of Otranto. Spent long days relaxing poolside and reading. I’m just back in Beijing and already miss that feeling so much.

而这个七月因为有最好朋友的婚礼而增添了一层美丽。婚礼地点选在了意大利普利亚萨伦托的Le Capase。这座修建在悬崖高处的度假胜地风景迷人,拥有奥兰特托海峡最美的景观。观礼之外当然不能错过酒店泳池畔晒太阳,看书和独处的时光。噢,虽然我已经回到北京,但还是想马上再去一次啊。

And then Alessandra’s wedding… Well, I’m a sucker for romance and I love love in all its shapes, but this time I was really overwhelmed… Alessandra was so beautiful in her white dress, her husband, Francesco, was so excited and the setting they chose – in a traditional trullo –  was so contemporary and romantic!

我最好的朋友Alessandra要结婚啦。对我这个无可救药的浪漫主义者来说,还有什么比见证爱情和神圣的婚礼更叫人兴奋的呢。Alessandra身着白色婚纱的样子美的不要不要的,而她的丈夫Francesco更是兴奋到不行,把我们都乐坏了。仪式的地点选在了传统的trullo(白色石顶圆屋),既传统又浪漫。

Then back to Rome for my sister’s graduation! Carolina is 26 and she spent last 6 years studying at Medical School and helping sick people in need. She is about to become a very good doctor, with knowledge and a human touch that is often so important.

从萨兰托回来就直奔Carolina的医学院毕业典礼,她今年刚满26岁,结束了6年的医学生学习。Carolina心底善良,且专业知识很好,在过去学习中经常帮助受疾病折磨的病人,我坚信她会成为一名好医生的。

At the Coffee Table, interviews from Singapore (Vysnavi N. Doss), Beijing (Theresa Rae and Rob Cunningham) and more were posted and Hope Evans, new member of the team, started contributing with some fun mood boards about stripes, Emma Watsons and more. Keep your eyes open – Hope has a very sharp eye and she can’t wait to share more stories with you.

七月Chiaras Coffee Table博客采访对象都让我眼前一亮:从独立珠宝设师Vysnavi到明星厨师Rob Cunninghan,远赴异乡的创业精神让我太有感触了。而博客团队新成员Hope Evans的加入给我惊喜,不管是“条纹”还是“艾玛·沃森”的故事都太对我的胃口了,希望我们能为大家呈现更多精彩的故事。
