Fiat 500 By Gucci

For years now I’ve been talking with my friends to go back to Italy where we all met for the first time during a university abroad program in a little town called Siena. After hearing about the launch of 500 by Gucci during the Milan Fashion Week, I think I have more reasons to make that trip sooner than later. I would love to give this car a try because the first family car related memories that I have is from our little red Fiat 128, another reason is that it would be fun to zip through all the narrow streets in Siena with the 500 and lets face it, this car is super stylish and adorable!


500 by Gucci is a collaboration between the Italian car maker and Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini to celebrate Gucci’s 90th anniversary. The 500 by Gucci will initially be available from April 1st to June 30th (in Italy), exclusively by pre-order online at, starting from 17,000 euros or about $24,000.

I like the yellow color for this car. I’m not sure if I want to drive it on a highway for too long but I think it’s a cute little toy car made for city girls like myself. I want one of these cars but there’s one little problem, they’re not sold in Canada. Continue reading “I Want A Daihatsu Copen!!!”

From Paddington Bear to Top Gear

Being a fan of British anything I recently came across an interesting fact about two of my favorite Brit things, Paddington toy bear and Jeremy Clarkson, journalist and host of Top Gear.
