FunkyForty Favourite Shops October’21 Update

Hi Everyone,

October always seems like one of those “in limbo” months to me. Summer has finished, Autumn is in full swing and Christmas is knocking on the door soon. Yet it’s still too early to put up Christmas decorations. I’m not quite willing to stop wearing all my Summer clothes and I feel desperate for a real change of scenery.

Luckily enough we did get to have a real change of scenery this month by visiting an amazing exclusive resort in South Tyrol that will be opening for the Christmas period. We took so many photos and I am so desperate to share them with you but have to wait until the official resort website is up and running. Hence a little preview with the picture above. Plus if you want to see the sister hotel – an amazingly priced “arty” pendant – check out my previous visit to the “Romantik Hotel Turm” here.

Siena Zurich jewellery has been created by two Spanish sisters with a passion for fashion. One of them now lives in Switzerland and so Suenia Zurich was born.
