A new star photographer

Seeing me running around with the camera taking pictures of every- and anything, my 5 year old wanted to try it as well. Here are some of the results of his pro photo shooting:

Vedendo me in giro con la macchina fotografica, facendo le foto a tutto, mio figlio di 5 anni voleva provarlo anche lui. Ecco alcuni dei sui risultati.

These boots ...

The other day I wore these booties, another new entry thanks to January Sales, for the first time. I had already posted a picture of them still being on the shop shelfs on Instagram. After sleeping it over, I went back and bought them. They are going to replace my mid-calf boots because a) those aren't ideal for my figure and b) the synthetic leather has begun peeling off.

Friday's Fashion Find - Statement Necklace

I've already said that I like to go to Etsy to find unique items of any kind, and I think a Statement Necklace is one of those things were it most definitely doesn't hurt to be special. So when "window shopping" on the internet, that was my first stop.

And look at those. It's worth checking out the shops linked.

My New Bag - Animal Print is Neutral

So on the first Friday's Fashion Find of 2014 I talked about wanting to buy a new bag, since I was missing a larger one in more neutral colors. I ended up buying this one in a local store, from a local brand.

As a general rule, I prefer to do this, support local businesses with my money, even if it means spending a little bit more. So if I have to/can choose, I will pick "Made in Italy" (and yes, I know...) over others, provided I actually like the model, the material and manufacturing of course. But if one goes outside of big retailers, there are usually options.

Voilà, my new bag in neutral colors!

Durante il primo Friday's Fashion Find ho menzionato di volermi comprare una nuova borsa, poichè mi mancava un modello più grande in colori più neutrali. Alla fine ho preso una decisione e ne ho acquistata questa in un negozio locale, borsa di marca italiana.

Come regola generale preferisco comportarmi così: sostenere le attività commerciali locali, anche se ciò significa spendere qualcosina in più. Se posso scelgo sempre "Made in Italy" (si, lo so...), ovviamente se mi piacciono il modello, i materiali utilizzati e la manifattura. Se non ci si rivolge ai grossi rivenditori, ci sono spesso delle buone opzioni.

Ecco qui, la borsa in colori neutri!

Back Home

We've returned back home from our trip to visit my family over Christmas & New Year. Another couple of days and our usual daily routine re-starts. Maybe. Or maybe not, as I am always striving to optimize it, despite the best efforts of son and husband.

I didn't really get to do what I had hoped during the stay, but it's all good anyway as I did do some unexpected things and of course, was just happy to see them, which is something that happens only 2-3 times a year now that I live abroad. Sure there's e-mail and Facebook and Skype, but that's just not the same as seeing someone in person.

What the trip definitely gave me this time around was lots to reflect on, lots to think about.
