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.





Let me know what you think about it!



Blazer: Zara
Shirt: OVS
Skirt: Pimkie
Shoes: Fashion women
Bracelet: Bijou Brigitte

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.

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!

London, July 2013.

"When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life" 

It’s been almost fortnigh I came back from the beautiful London.


 I went there on a study holiday for two weeks. I’ve never had the opportunity to travel a lot; this was only the second time I went abroad.

 If I stop to think about it, it seems to me only yesterday (oh my gosh I’m talking like my grandmother) I worried about a looot of things about this trip to London

. For example that my suitcase would never arrive at the London airport and it would end up in Timbuctù, instead..

However, the things that worried me the most were the fact of not being able to make friends and not being able to get by.

As I discovered later, there was no reason to think all of that.

 People I knew were so funny and down on earth that I got on well with them. I have to thank them too if I enjoyed this trip so much.

And yeah, I discovered that I was really able to get by; feeling a little indipendent  is a nice feeling.

(But I’m not going to lie: during the first few days I really felt homesick.)

 AND, last but not least, my suitcase arrived!

London is a really stunning city.

 Aside from the wonderful places I got the opportunity to see, what I really loved of London was that you could see a lot of different people, dressed in a different way, maybe with pink or turquoise hair, with lots of piercing or tattoos, and no one turned around and glared at them.

 I know maybe I stayed in London too little time to say it and maybe happens that people turn around and judge, but it’s just what I was able to notice for the short time I was there and I really loved it.

Anyway, I’m going to show you some pictures I took! 🙂



 Red Telephone Box.


Hyde Park.


That’s the lovely Brighton.


This is an incredible portrait painter. (Still in Brighton)


Buckingham Palace.


 Tower Bridge.


 Big Ben.




 Madame Tussauds: The Queen Beyoncé and me. Proude Ladies!


 London Eye.


So that’s it! Thanks to anyone who will read about my trip in London, hope you’ll like this post!
