· 2 pairs of Stuart Weitzman shoes: ok, so Stuart Weitzman, despite being expensive already, are even more so in Europe because the prices are the same…in Euros. Madness, I know. And to really make matters worse, they never go on sale. There is literally no sale section, ever, on the Italian site. I ordered two pairs that were something like 50-70% off from the Canadian website last season. #firstworldproblems right. Sometimes I loathe myself.
· Maple syrup: it’s so weird, but don’t you ever get the urge to just have a few spoonfuls of this stuff? No? Just Canadians? Or just this particular Canadian? Please tell me I'm not alone in this.
· Lemon meringue pie filling: gnam gnam, can’t get it here.
· Random Sephora stuff: same reason as the Stuart Weitzman, as well, I might start crying as I type this…I used to be a VIB Rouge member back in Canada and alas, it doesn’t transfer to Europe so here in Italy I’m starting from the very bottom again with a lowly White Sephora card.
· Dino Sours: I haven’t really put in an effort, perhaps these are somewhere in Italy but so much easier to make my mom buy them and have them appear magically along with a cute Italian named Massi.
· A “to-go” coffee cup: I suddenly find myself wanting to make a latte in the mornings to take to work and I’ve been hard-pressed to find one in a country that doesn’t believe in taking coffee beyond the bar.
· Chinese herbal medicine: again, also probably available somewhere in Chinatown in Milan, or even in a Chinese market here in Bergamo. Unfortunately a lot of these places have made headlines and not in a good way so I’m finding myself more wary and worried than I should be.
· BACON: no explanation needed guys.
