WELCOME TO LA DOLCE VITA LIFESTYLE

ELEGANCE, GLAMOUR AND WELLNESS WITH AN ITALIAN FLAIR

Hello!

I am Donna

I’m the founder of the La Dolce Vita Lifestyle and author of The Big Book of Mediterranean Diet Cooking, which is available in bookstores all across the U.S.

This book came about because I’m a lover of all things Italian: the food, fashion, culture, wine, history, architecture, the landscape, and the people.

A few years ago, I left my fast-paced, high-stress job in search of something more. I learned to slow down, to enjoy healthy cooking, and to live life with passion and a sense of play.

I believe in making magical moments by adding a zest for life, an eye for beauty, and a feeling of connection to everything I do.

On these pages you’ll find recipes, lifestyle tips, craft projects, sparkly and shiny things, and advice on the art of living well.

If you’re a lover of food, beauty, style, and most importantly the sweetness of life, I would love for you to join me on this journey.

Let’s live la dolce vita together.

I’m happy you’re here.

 

Donna xoxo
