Italy and Monaco (unfortunately not the places)

The other night I took my friend Steph out for her Birthday. We opted for a little Italian place in Port Credit, Papa Giuseppe's.

This place is very small, very cute, and the food is delicious. If you're a fan of having oodles of space to yourself, it won't be your thing. 

I like it, it reminds me of actually being in Italy. Cute red checkered table cloths, great wine and simple, fresh and delicious food. 

I recommend ANY of the pizzas, or the Braised Beef Ravioli!

Even a Thursday night birthday dinner deserves a little dressing up! It gave me the perfect opportunity to wear my new Club Monaco dress!

I picked this up on sale last weekend (at an additional 40% off no less) as a winter-to-summer dress. You can't see in the picture but it's got tiny pink spots as well, so it might make another trip out of the closet for valentines day. 

Paired with my new Kate Spade clutch, my Links of London and Kate Spade bracelets, and my favourite ring and I was ready for the evening.

A fabulous taste of Italy, a great birthday dinner with one of my best friends, and a cute outfit to boot? What more could a girl ask for?

Sometimes, you can have your cake and eat it too... or your chocolate mousse tower.
