Night out in black ‘n white

See everybody, I am keeping the promise not to neglect this blog anymore!

Also I said that this was going to be also a fashion blog, because as I wrote, probably too much, I am in love with fashion.

I recently discovered “Lookbook” and I’ve been posting some of my outfits.
I have to say that I am intimidated and sometimes ashamed to post my looks because of how amazingly both girls and boys dress in those pictures.

Anyway here is the outfit I wore for a night out with my friends.

Prom: A Night to Remember

Glitter, amazing dresses, high heels.
Dance floor, friends, spiked punch.
Promposal, limo, tons of pictures.
Boyfriend, corsage, slow dances.

Yes, I admit it. I sure am a victim of those american teen movies where you see each one of the things that I listed. And I am in owe everytime I see them, even if the story is exactly the same cliché one and the only thing that changes are the actors.

I should probably go to one of those meetings for people who have a problem and talk about it. The scene would be something like this:

“-Today we have a new member in our group. Could you introduce yourself to everybody and tell us what your problem is? Remember, we are not here to judge you. We are your friends.
-Hi my name is Giulia and I am addicted to american teen movies that have a prom in the storyline.
*silence*

Well considering that it could happen with many other of my addictions, I should change topic…

So, about prom.

Even if I daydreamed a lot about it, there has always been a problem for me: there is no prom at all in my country. So the dream of going to that craved prom was going to stay pretty much a dream.

But then, as you know, I went to the US.
And not enough happy just go to the prom, I was part of the prom committee to also organise it.

The theme was Las Vegas.
The place was decorated amazingly, exactly how we wanted it. The food and the music were good. The people were wonderful. Every girl seemed to be stepped out of one of those movies I watched.
It was beautiful, surely a night to remember for the rest of my life.

Here are some pictures of that night when I felt like a princess.

Prom Dress: it was from a prom shop (so sorry I can’t even remember where it was) and it was $99.
Shoes: 9&Co.

After having neglected this blog for too long

I’ve been neglecting this blog for too long now. My excuse is: I’ve been busy (and you could say: who isn’t?!? You presumptious girl).
Well you would be right, but that’s my honest excuse. The last months in the US took all my time and I’m glad about it. I had the Prom, I attended a Gala, I learned to dance the waltz, I went to a Bastille’s concert and to Washington. I mean, big times.

And oh, the finals at school. I thought that US History was going to be the death for me. But geez if I was wrong. The English one was worse. Henry David Thoreau, why and I mean why you had to write in such a complicated way?!?

These exchange semester, changed (sorry for the pun) me a lot, and being home wasn’t easy for the first few weeks; I felt disoriented and overwelmed, because I grew up and now I have things that characterize me from both Italy and the US and I need to learn to live with it.

Speaking about the US, I miss my host family and my friends. I miss speaking that beautiful languiate that is English 24/7, I miss Lifetime and OWN.
I miss my iced mocha at Starbucks.

I miss gospel songs at the church on Sunday morning. I miss having a bedroom and a bathroom all for myself, I miss the quiet and I miss being independent. I miss SALESSSSS!

But as Italian, I still love coffee and having breakfast with a cappuccino and a croissant.

I still love Nutella. I still love having the beach fifteen minuts away from my house, sharing the bedroom with my sister and the loudness of my family. I still love my scooter and that I can go places walking. I still love the beautiful colors we have.

What’s New is that I learned to love my country more and that it’s part of who I am.

I have beautiful projects for myself and my future. And for this blog, of course. No more neglecting!

I will post a lot of picture about the US that I hope you will enjoy.
Also I want this to be a fashion blog besides a life blog, since it’s my dream to work in fashion communication.
It’s the right time to show the tons of things I bought in the US!

Halfway through

Today are exactly three months that I left my country and I came to the United States.

When they told me that time was going to fly while I would’ve been there, I would have NEVER though that it was going to fly THAT fast.

I don’t think it’s even necessary saying that the day of my departure I was like:

                What the hell I was thinking about when I decided to do this?!

But now it’s been three months that I’ve been here, with all the sad moments when you are so homesick that if you had a ticket to go home you would, with all the happy and wonderful moments that would always be part of you and that make you never want to return to your home country. So far, everything is going great,

I’m not going to lie: being an exchange student is not easy. But it’s worth it.

So now I am on spring break and I’m enjoying my time in Charlotte very much. I’ve been going out every day and I’ve bought so many things I don’t even know where to start! I will probably do a post about all the things I bought.

On March I’ve been in New York. YES!

N E W     Y O R K     C I T Y

I can’t even believe it, but it’s true. And they were the best days of my life.

I felt in the right place, I knew and I know that that’s the place where I belong to.

(I will do a post of that trip, too!)

Also, the prom is approaching and I need a prom dress.

Knowing myself, I will probably buy it the day before the prom. Oh gosh.

These are the two that I tried on.

They’re so beautiful, but at the same time really expensive. I’m going crazy about this prom thing!

I know this post is not very long, but I really wanted to post something for the day of my three months here.

I can’t wait to write all the other posts that I have in mind! Also, there is going to be more fashion here, but I won’t spoiler anything, stay tuned!

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

First post!

Hello people of WordPress!

I’m one of the hundreds and hundreds (maybe I should say thousands) of  people who, today, have decided to open a blog.

From the things I’ve just read on the internet, there’s a huge percentage my blog will die in a few months unless I write something interesting, unless my blog’s name and its layout are captivating and unless I follow some instructions such as: “Fifty plus one advice to build a successful Blog!”. Or whatever.

(Okay, I do admit I read something similar to that ‘fifty plus one advice’ thing…)

Anyway! I’m just going to introduce myself a little bit.

My name is Giulia and I’m seventeen years old.

Really big dreamer, New York obsessed (and hopefully a future New Yorker, thank you so much), books and music lover, fashion devoted, aspiring writer.

(My blog will be full of thoughts and pictures about these things.)

Stubborn, kind, touchy, honest, moody, passionate, ambitious.

I adore my family and my friends. Oh and of course: pizza.

I’ve decided to write my blog in English, even if it’s not my first language. It’s not at all because I have the presumption to think I can speak and write English as my mother tongue. It’s just because I really want to practice it more than I can. So, really, feel free to let me know any mistakes I will make. It will be appreciated!

Thanks very much to anyone who has spent a few minutes to read my first post!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Giulia
