January in 1:1 snaps.

January 29th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

January is definitely not one of my favourite months: with the whole going back to the usual routine, feeling you might have gained a few extra lbs during the Holiday that you need to fix, the grey and cold days, things can be a bit stressful and depressing. We were lucky to see a bit of sunshine now and again and to be able to spend some lovely days, but all in all January could be a lot better than it was! But since my only main resolution for this 2015 is to try and be positive as much as possible and appreciate the little things that maybe, under a different point of view, are really what made the whole thing worth, I’ll try to start a new blog series to share a few 1:1 snaps from my month coming directly from my Instagram (or phone) and list down the highlights of the past 30 days, at least 5 of those little things that I should really start to appreciate a lot more.

Hopefully I’ll be able to keep going with this little blog project and won’t abandon it after only a few months (as it happens all the time!). So these were the highlights of this first month of 2015…

1 :: The satisfying feeling of finding new clothes that fits you perfectly between the bargains of winter sales, and above all being able to find a dress that not only will be appropriate for these last winter weeks, but I’m sure will be worn a lot during spring too!

2 :: Getting to see someone who means a lot to you but who you weren’t able to see for years. Sometimes it only feels too late, but not always it is.

3 :: Getting into the habit of drinking green tea once a day. I’ve always known how good it is for our bodies but I was never able to really enjoy it until this month, when I decided to try this gem and discovered even green tea can be such a treat!

4 :: Receiving the most delicious parcel that has ever been. It truly made my day that afternoon when I unwrapped all that chocolate with the excitement of a little happy girl! Thank you again, Lindt, for being such a sweet Valentine to me this year! I seriously feel so lucky every time I receive those delish treats – so expect to be bombarded with pictures, recipes, reviews of them in the very upcoming future!

5 :: Latte stencils are being the highlight of my mornings lately! I’ve spent an entire morning designing and creating a few and am now experimenting with techniques to get an aesthetically pleasing latte + a velvety foam. Maybe one day I’ll be able to experiment with true latte art – in the meanwhile just check out this video/art work, cutest thing ever, it will make you smile!

Christmas in 1:1 snaps.

December 27th  •  Posted in Lifestyle

Hey there! Hope y’all have had a very lovely time these past few days! In my last catch up post I told you I was going to come back pretty soon with a new update about my Christmas: deciding where to stay on Christmas day was not so easy, but in the end I spent Christmas eve at home, wrapping presents and baking and eating delicious food (and we went to watch The Hobbit too!) and Christmas day at my boyfriend’s place – where the filling-the-belly-of-delicious-food got very serious. I came back with a food baby after eating my body weight in appetizers, spaghetti with clams, chicory lasagna, grilled tuna and roasted potatoes, and pineapple + vanilla ice cream! Not to mention the huge amount of pastry treats: tiramisu and pistachio yule logs, amazing festive chocolates and Santa-shaped panettone were definitely my favourite things of Christmas! Not bad that my boyfriend’s uncle is one of the most known pastry chef of Milan, uh?!

Santa was super good to me this year and brought me a tun of cute presents I’m so thankful for including a huge box of chocolate from said pastry shop, the cutest slippers, the softest blanket, festive nail varnishes and all sort of beauty treats! The last pair of days have been spent eating leftovers and more panettone, and enjoying the festive spirit for a bit longer. Today’s snowing and I’m super excited! What were you up to at Christmas this year? I’m super curious to get to know everything you ate 😉 x
