(so funny, a bio in third person)
Made in Italy, living in Norway. Valentina is born in Tuscany but her studies and jobs brought her everywhere in Europe: London, Santiago, Lisbon, St. Andrews, Amsterdam, Barcelona… and finally Oslo. She considers the Norwegian capital her new home, but she remains an Italian at heart, with a bubbly personality and the conviction that whatever you're cooking, she'll do it better. She loves mornings, useless decorative objects, mice and sparkling water, but her great passions are traveling and… her job!
From 2009 she worked as project manager and event planner for different organisations, as well as social media manager and content creator. In 2016 while planning her wedding in the Tuscan countryside she realised weddings are not an easy task, especially when you have to deal with bureaucracy, tropical summers, unpredictable florists and eccentric menus. In 2017 she married Pepo, on one of the hottest days of the last 50 years. Maybe it was a heatstroke or a sudden enlightenment, she decided then to found LaLindi, only to realize 20min later she should have done it before. .
Always searching for inspiration, be it the perfect hidden spot in the Italian countryside or a new trend, she believes it’s possible to create beauty everywhere and that simple things are the ones will surprise us the most. Her planning skills, eye for details and ability to put together different pieces to create a beautiful harmony, make her the perfect choice for any celebration big or small.
In Valentina’s hands, you can be sure that what may have started simply as a pleasant evening with your friends, co-workers or loved ones, will definitively turn into the most memorable night you can possibly imagine!
