Louis Vuitton Travel Guides
It's unique, and I like unique. Therefore, I like this. You can purchase online or in the store. My favorites are the New York City Guide for $38 and the boxed European edition 2009 for $145. For the rest of the cities click here.
Grape In A Bottle
Last on my list for this week, Algodonwines. What is it? It is the Algodon Wines Estates Barrel Ownership Program. (A mouth full)
DailyCandy.com said it best, "You fantasize about quitting your job, buying a vineyard in South America, blogging about it, then selling the book rights for millions." Who hasn't thought of doing that, right? Gather a group of friends and purchase a barrel to make your very own wine and customized label.
I'm fully convinced that there has to be something similar (or even better) to this here in Italy. If you know, let me know! In the meantime, I'll daydream about what to call my new fashioned Merlot.
