About this blog and writer




avc biog pic

Welcome to Angelina’s Casa. My blog is dedicated to the uplifting and inspirational places and things in life – whether that is travel, beauty, fashion or quite simply new and interesting ‘ideas’.

I have been a journalist for nearly 20 years, travelling all over the world. My blog portrays all my own views and I do not make any money from it. That way, I remain in control and can write what I want.

For many years I have kept scrapbooks on things of interest, lovely things to inspire, interior ideas etc and I guess this is just a modern day version of those…

Cut and paste

I’ve lived most of my adult life in London and have also lived in Venice, Italy and Barbados. My father is Italian and I’ve spent a lot of time in the village of Settesorelle, in the Apennine Mountains (below), where he was born. I’ve also travelled extensively throughout Italy as well as many other parts of the world.

Get in touch and I hope you enjoy my musings.

  1. Hi Angelina,
    I just saw your link on the Tactile Wonderland Facebook page and saw all the other gorgeous wallpapers by other friends of mine like Claire Coles as well.
    I am running my own company Elli Popp offering customised, exclusive wallpapers and Bone China products.
    I just thought I’d drop you a line with a link.
    Maybe one day you would like to feature one of our products, that would be lovely.
    Have a nice day and very best wishes,
