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!

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.

 Image

 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! 🙂
