It's all a matter of 'comfort zone': the native language is the supreme example of 'comfort zone'... Well known vocabulary, well integrated grammar structures and all the unspoken cultural rules that accompany communication. All of the above disappears when faced with learning a new language.

I would say that I'm one of those people who enjoys cooking, but has never really found the knack of following recipes. Perhaps it's the designer in me, but when I'm left alone in the kitchen, I always have the urge to get creative and result in a recipe far from the picturesque concoction in a recipe book.

Coffee Crisis

Another Italian rip-off, is, of course, coffee chains. On his first visit to a UK coffee shop my confused boyfriend had a lot of questions: 'What's a Mochaccino?', 'And a syrup shot?' and 'ARE YOU JOKING? £1.80 for an Espresso?!'

It's not that I'm a some crazy purist when it comes to Italian food, I love a bit of fusion cooking as much as the next person, what annoys me is that these restaurants, supermarkets and even TV chefs put the label of 'Italian' on something that is quite clearly not Italian at all!

A day-to-night sandal is often a key factor when choosing Summer footwear - while trend and comfort are also important, making a style statement with your feet which can work across on or off duty ensembles, is ultimately what drives most women to shop in store or online.

Pirelli have admitted that a four-stop strategy is too many stops for a Formula One race and most of Sunday's runners did just that. Even a few three-stop strategies were changed on the fly to a 4-stop tactic to stay within tow of Ferrari's blistering pace.

Coppa di Parma is a ham made from the shoulder of the pig, rather than the leg. It has a fairly high fat content so it's very versatile and usually very reasonably priced. The combination of salty, fatty, coppa with the sweet prawns and lots of parsley creates a beautiful flavour.

With a lunch offering of a main course primi plus either a starter or dessert priced at £12 the only wonder is why it took me so long to get to Trullo. Everyone I know who really likes their food, as opposed to just liking to eat out, had told me to go and now I know why.

As someone with a more casual approach to clothing, not to mention a propensity for novelty headwear (I blame Minnie), the playful alice band covered in slightly grumpy looking bears nestled in a row, bound by rich velvet ribbons and glossy pearls, is the standout highlight for me.
