About this blog and writer

by angelinavc




Welcome to Angelina’s Casa. This blog is a showcase for my writing. I have been a travel and lifestyle journalist for 20 years, writing for the mainstream press, so in these pages you will find a selection of these pieces as well as stand-alone features. I love to explore the world around me and I always have an interesting trip on the horizon to look forward to. Another passion has long been beauty, so I love to discover new products that do their job and more… I’m also an interiors and lifestyle writer so keep a look out for my trends pieces on what’s hot for the home.

My blog portrays all my own views and I do not make any money from it.


Get in touch. You can email me on angelina_villa@hotmail.com



Some of the features on my blog are based on complimentary press trips. Some of the beauty coverage is based on reviews of products I may have been sent for this purpose. However all opinions are my own, I always try and be genuine and authentic in all of my posts, and I am selective about what I decide to write about. If it’s not good enough for Angelina’s Casa, it won’t make the edit.

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,

Hi Alex
thanks for getting in touch and asking for approval. I don’t hold copyright and so you’ll have to contact the PR for the hotel.
Please email: claire@masonrose.com – before you use the image for permission from the photographer.

Heya Angelina. Have you promoted your blog in any Facebook groups before? I have just started my own called Blogs In Bloom- I have a blog post about it if you need more information ? (I do follow you by the way). Thank you ?.
