I took this photo while I was heading to school, the other day. I was in a rush and I didn’t have the time to wait to see if the picture came out how I wanted it to be. Unfortunately, when it ended to develop, I realized it came out a bit too dark. I wanted to come back and shoot it again, but the weather wasn’t on my side. So I decided to post it anyway, and if you can’t tell, those are bikes. Lots of bikes.

Anyway. Can you guess where I have been shopping last Friday? Yes, LUSH! Last week I did some highlights on my hair, but they came out way too… light. I read on this blog about LUSH’s Henna product and, since I am a big LUSH lover, I decided to give it a try. I can’t tell you how it came out yet because I have the product on my hair right now, and I still have a few hours to go. Hopefully nobody will call me “blondie” again. I really hope I’ll soon be able to write a little review about it.

I never come out of LUSH with just one product on my bag, and this time was no exception. Actually, I think I never spent that much… But I felt like my hair really needed some more care. And let’s be honest, the guy that sold me everything is just the greatest seller I’ve ever met. At least, today I finally filled my customer card, meaning that next time I’ll get a discount. Yay!

I’m really excited to try all my new products. Hopefully, they’ll work as good as they’ve been s0ld to me!

I always hated the idea of aging, but here I am, with another year on my shoulders. Today I’m 24 and this number couldn’t scare me more. Maybe it’s because I know I don’t have any power to slow down the time and I’m afraid I won’t have enough of it to spend around the people I love.

That’s why I want to make the most out of it. I don’t want to spend any minute today being upset about growing up. Instead, I want to celebrate not my birthday, but all the amazing people in my life. Sometimes I forget how lucky I am… I have a family that supports me and that has always been there for me in every moment of my life. A boyfriend that is the most amazing person in the entire world and that always know how to make me smile. I have friends that I know I can count on no matter what. And let’s not forget about all of you, the people who read this blog even if it’s been such a mess for a long time, and that supported all of this even without knowing me. Let’s be straight here: who could ask for more?

Even if my family and friends may not be reading this blog, I want to thank everyone for being there. You all make my life amazing!

I Say Sorry Too Much

150113 I say sorry too much
I’m back!

More than one person already told me that I say sorry too much. It’s true, I tend to say it way often and it came to the point where people may think that I say it more like as an habit than because I mean it. The thing is, I actually mean it. Always.

Since this is my first post of 2015 (Happy New Year, everyone!), I will try to start with my only New Year’s Resolution: saying “sorry” less. I thought I would have started this post by apologizing for my long absence from the blog, but I’ve done that so many times that I’m also started to be tired of it.

I always have some difficulties in putting myself back into work, and this blog is no exception. I want to write, I really do. But when you stay away for so much times, it can be a bit scaring. I have to admit it, though: it feels nice to write again. And I’m realizing just now how much I actually missed it.

So yeah,… Here I am. But let’s keep it short – as I say, I’m not here to apologize.

What have you guys been to these lest weeks?

 

Una buona angolazione

The good angle1

Come forse ricorderete, non mi è mai piaciuto il modo in cui esco nelle fotografie. Ho letto qua e la che sta tutto nel trovare la giusta angolazione e che la pratica rende perfetti. Ma tutte le volte che ho provato a determinare quale fosse il mio angolo buono, mi sono sempre ritrovata a deprimermi perché la mia faccia non si decideva proprio ad apparire anche solo un pochino decente.

Qualche giorno fa mi sono ritrovata al parco con Stitch, che è una delle poche persone che è già riuscita a farmi piacere una mia fotografia. Avevo bisogno di una nuova foto per il mio CV, ma avevo paura e mi ero già rattristata all’idea di dover farmi scattare delle foto. Come sempre, ero già convinta che in ogni caso non sarebbe uscito nulla di buono dalla macchina fotografica. Stitch ha però deciso che era giunto il momento di trovare finalmente il mio angolo buono, e che non avrei potuto lamentarmi.

The good angle2

Penso davvero che potrebbe essere una sorta di stregone, perché ancora una volta è riuscito a compiere una magia. Non sto dicendo che sono uscita benissimo o niente di simile, ma.. queste foto mi piacciono e guardandole non odio la mia faccia. E se mi conoscete, saprete che questo fatto è impressionante. Molto impressionante.

The good angle3

Quindi, secondo il mio caro Stitch, questo è il mio angolo buono: testa girata sulla mia spalla sinistra, e leggermente spinta all’indietro. Spero di riuscire a ricordare tutto ciò la prossima volta che qualcuno cercherà di scattarmi una foto, invece di cedere al solito attacco di panico.

The good angle4

Sono comunque convinta che questo successo sia dovuto anche al fatto di aver posato (se così si può dire) insieme ad una persona con la quale mi sento molto a mio agio…

Qual’è il vostro angolo buono?

 

The Good Angle

As you may know, I never liked the way I look in photographs. I find myself always looking really bad and I hate that. I read here and there that it’s all about finding the good angle and that practice makes perfect. But every time I tried to practice to find what’s my good angle, I got really upset cause my face just couldn’t look even a bit good.

The other day I was out with Stitch, that is one of the only people that already succeed in making my like one of my photographs. I needed a picture to complete my CV, but I was scared and already sad since I know I would not have liked anything coming from the camera. So he decided that it was about time to finally find your good angle, and that I couldn’t complain about it.

The good angle2

I think he might be a wizard or something like that, because once again he did the magic. I’m not saying that I look stunning or anything but, I do like those pictures and I don’t hate my face in it. And, if you know me, you should know that it’s something impressing. Really impressing.

The good angle3

So, according to Stitch, that’s my good angle: head turned on my left shoulder, and slightly pushed back. I hope I will remember that instead of having a panic attack next time someone is about to take take a picture of me.

The good angle4

I guess that a big part of it was also having the picture taken with someone you’re really comfortable with.

What’s your good angle?

Wed’s Photo #36

La mia bella Blackie è stata miracolosamente in posa per questa foto. Avrei voluto correre a prendere la mia Canon, ma avevo paura che nel frattempo se ne andasse, così ho colto l’occasione al volo ed ho scattato con il solito iPhone.

separatoreMy beautiful cat Blackie stayed in place for this photo, and that’s like a miracle for her. I wanted to go and take my Canon to shoot, but I was afraid that she would just get up and go away, so I took the occasion and I shoot with my iPhone.

After Light

Anche oggi la pigrizia mi ha indotto a utilizzare nuovamente il mio iPhone per la foto del mercoledì. Ho provato ad utilizzare la doppia esposizione in After Light, che ho promosso come a miglior applicazione per il ritocco delle immagini sul mio telefono.

Avete già utilizzato questa applicazione? Cosa ne pensate?

Today I felt lazy again and I used one more time my iPhone for my Wednesday’s photo. I tried to use the double exposure on After Light, which I think is the best app for photo editing on my phone right now.

Did you already use this app? What do you think about it?

Wed’s Photo #34

Camera: iPhone 5c

Ecco, mi sembrava strano che ultimamente ero riuscita ad essere sempre così puntuale con la foto del mercoledì. Settimana scorsa non ho nemmeno pubblicato la foto e oggi mi ritrovo a farlo di giovedì. Chiedo umilmente perdono.

Perdonatemi anche per aver scattato questa foto con un semplice iPhone 5c, ma devo dire che infondo mi sono un po’ sorpresa del risultato.

In questi giorni, e per tutta l’estate, sto facendo da babysitter ad una bimba di quattro anni. E’ dolcissima e ci divertiamo un mondo (qualche capriccio a parte). La foto l’ho scattata mentre eravamo al parcogiochi e lei si era persa nel suo mondo ad impersonare Rapunzel. Per molte cose mi ricorda molto me stessa. Anche se personalmente non ero una fan di principesse e compagnia (sì, ero più una bimba-maschiaccio), anch’io mi rifugiavo spesso nel mio mondo di fantasia con i miei amici immaginari. In quei momenti niente e nessuno del mondo esterno poteva disturbarmi.

E voi, come eravate da piccoli?

I took this picture with my iPhone 5c and I admit that I wasn’t expecting this results. I quite like the picture, which was taken in a playground while I was babysitting.

This summer I’m looking after a 4 years old girl, who is all into princesses and loves to impersonate them. Even if when I was a child I was more a tomboy, I remember that I used to close myself into my fantasy world all the time. That’s why sometimes she remainds me of my little self.

What where you like as a child?
