This post made me laugh out loud! Particularly point 3, which pretty much sums up my life, given that I am also called Emma and my Siclian boyfriend is quite happy to point out "ciccia" on a regular basis!!

Hi Emma

I love your blog!

what is it about Italians and the 'ciccia'? And especially the way that they detect said ciccia even from a distance? No wonder Trinny and Susanna aren't a success here. Their efforts at trying to get you to disguise your bad points would definitely fail.

Oh well.

Love your blog, Emma. Italy is one of my favorite places, and you make me want to go back right now!
