The Point About the Eyelashes.....

if one is travelling they are a life-saver, and a time saver.
instead of spending 1/2 hour to apply makeup, all you need is your foundation & blush & you're ready to rock.

as most of you know, I love Italy, especially the Amalfi Coast,
however, I also love Rome....

and I especially love the Waldorf Astoria Cavalieri Hotel,
sitting high atop a hill overlooking all of Rome

that's right, head for the hills...where the air is rare, where pools shimmer,
pines soar & a team of luxurists are vying to spoil you

nestled on 15 acres of lush Mediterranean park,
15 ACRES, people....this is amazing in itself, isn't it?
opened in 1963 it has been continually updated & improved by the Hilton family.
it is truly one of the finest hotels in the world, in my opinion.

just about the most perfect outfit one can wear in this beautiful place.
red, always red, in Italy !!!

below, the Penthouse Suite contains the famous Dollar Sign original art by Andy Warhol,
actually quite amazing for a hotel room, right?

the spa, the hairsalon, the exercise room, the tennis courts, the jogging trails in the wooded property makes all of this exceptional.

sitting poolside is one of my favorite things to do...
I could be here 1/2 a day and think I've spent my time well.

below, La Pergola Rooftop Restaurant is recognized as the best restaurant in Rome,
and one of the top 4 in all of Italy.  believe me, it's true.
the dining experience is beyond beautiful.
it's Rome's only 3-Star Michelin Restaurant.

we have stayed here many many times, we return because of it's remote location
 overlooking all of Rome...
they have a little bus which runs every half hour to downtown Rome, so you can come & go easily,
and the other guests are always wonderful international people who we love getting to know.

so, you see, this is the perfect stop-over after the Houston-Rome flight....
giving us a chance to catch our breath, do a little shopping, dining, spa-going...
all without leaving the property...


where these kinds of outfits RULE
(except maybe not the high high high heels)



  1. In the 80's we stayed at a hotel in the seven hills. I see Capodemonte in the windows of the dining room I used to have a collection of it from before WW1 Factory was bombed in both wars. Have a safe and wonderful trip. My cousin has a family home in Amalfi.
    So many stairs to climb, can't do it now. yvonne

  2. Enjoy your time ... and Marsha - if only to dinner, wear the high heels!!!

  3. I would love to wear eyelashes! I just have never figured them out and as I said, I am lazy. I am sure that you look beautiful with or without them.

    I hope that you have a fabulous time in Italy! This is indeed a beautiful area. I love Rome and could not agree more abut the red dress.

  4. These pictures are amazing! Hope you are having a wonderful week :)


  5. MY husband GREW UP minutes away from THAT HOTEL!!!!!!!!XX

  6. I will probably be back again to browse much more, many thanks for the data.


Please know how much I value your comments. I read every single one and do hope you will take the time to leave your thoughts. I think InstaGram with the Emojis have taken a lot away from blogging, but I love IG too.
