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.

Love,

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!
