After a bitter divorce, Elizabeth goes on a writing assignment to Italy, India and Indonesia to sort herself out and envelop herself in her senses. By loosing herself in eating, praying and loving, she rediscovers herself along the way.
How many of us have let life pass us by? Woken up and realised that we haven't taken care of ourselves? Or simply became complacent in a miserable situation instead of cherishing every moment as a gift?
This is much of what Elizabeth earnestly and painfully comes to terms about herself while traveling.
What does traveling around the world to Italy, India and Indonesia have to do with lingerie?
While in Italy, she bought the most luxurious lingerie for a small fortune. She didn't have anyone to wear it for, besides herself. But that didn't stop her. Part of experiencing life is indulging in what makes us feel good and planning for love.
The Italian lingerie brand, La Perla, is one of my favorite lines (images below). The detail, quality and comfort is hard to beat. I can easily see why Elizabeth bought herself Italian lingerie while there!
Eat, Pray, Love is a great holiday gift to women that you love in your life!
Elizabeth is one woman who started off afraid and alone, and throughout her journey learned to Celebrate Her Inner Eve!
