This weekend while in Florence for a meeting at Luisa Via Roma, I had the great pleasure of catching up with some of my favorite style bloggers and fashionistas like Tiany Kiriloff of Belmodo. Based in Belgium, the mother of two beautiful little girls, journalist, author and tv-host, she is a huge source of inspiration for me. I have no idea how she does it all. I'm also a mother, have my position at Grazia.it, try really hard to maintain All the Pretty Birds, but lately I've been feeling super exhausted. Instead, whenever I bump into Tiany she's totally full of energy and super encouraging. It was soooo good seeing her this weekend. For a little on her experience at Firenze 4 Ever and a glimpse of some of her favorite things...
So tell me, is this your first time in Florence?
It's my very first time in Florence and I'm delighted to be here, it's amazing, but I love Italy, I even got married here :) In Ravello...
What did you do yesterday?

What do you think about the Luisa Via Roma event Firenze 4 Ever?
It's so professional, well organized and a great chance to meet lovely people and I mean... it's the candy shop... all the ab fab designer dresses and shoes and bags...
Was it different from what you expected?
I tend to not have many expectations as I like to just go with the flow and see where it takes me.
Do you know what you'll be styling?
I like colors and prints and I'll probably be using some Marni in my styling... not sure yet, I guess for now I'm just consuming all these lovely images of all these pretty ladies and people and Im actually just enjoying the sun on the LVR terrace... styling will be for tomorrow.

Fav breakfast is pancakes, I'm a sweet tooth and well I love eating and I'm kind of a carnivore, so a lovely piece of meat is always good for me ;).
Who or what do you love the most?
I love the most fooling around with my girls and playing kid while they're mom and dad... really funny how they put on my high heels and dad's shoes...
What color do you see when you look at your girls?
I see bright hues of blue.... like the skies and the reflecting azure blue sea...
