A Special Come Back: 2 Things that have changed my life // Un ritorno con il botto: 2 novita’!

*** As always, the English version comes first and the Italian one comes second. ***

I know, it’s been a long time since I last published a post on my blog, but everyday life with many things to do together with being lazy brought me to temporarily abandon this beautiful, relaxing and energising habit of writing.

How many times did I have something to write? Well, so many! But actually 2 things prevented me from doing so for quite some time:

  1. I became MOM to Riccardo, an almost already 10-month old baby
  2. I changed career and became a Jewellery Designer, creating my own brand: V DESIGN LAB

There’s a lot online and offline about becoming a mom and I for sure don’t feel an expert and I don’t want to write about it. It may bring happiness, but one thing it’s for sure: it takes up a lot of your time that before was dedicated to travelling, doing sports, writing this blog or other things…or simply relaxing and doing nothing.

The 2nd thing has always been there in my subconscious, but probably it was in Australia, due to the circumstances, that I really started thinking about it. I many times dreamt about it, thinking: ” will this thought ever become a reality?”, but most of all “will I ever have the courage to do it?” Well, 2 lucky coincidences have prompted me to give it a go (Quoting the #GenBetter Medibank Ad campaign with Rod Laver which inspired me): moving to Zurich and falling pregnant. So I started taking some metal-smithing courses in Melbourne then in Milan at La Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana and a Jewellery Design Course at the Milan Politecnico, finally starting a brand: V DESIGN LAB.

I don’t know how often I’ll be able to write, but for sure this is my space where I can enjoy writing and gain energy back every time I can write.130

Ok, lo ammetto non scrivo da qualche mese oramai, ma quante volte ho pensato di farlo o quante volta avevo qualcosa da scrivere? Beh, parecchie la verita’, ma le mille cose della vita di tutti i giorni, il poco tempo, la pigrizia, ecc… ecc… mi hanno fermato.

La verita’ e’ che ci sono almeno 2 cose che mi hanno cambiato la vita:

  1. Sono diventata MAMMA di Riccardo, che tra poco compie gia’ 10 mesi
  2. Ho cambiato carriera e sono diventata Jewellery Designer, creando la mia marca: V DESIGN LAB

Non voglio sproloquiare sul diventare mamma dato che la rete e’ piena di punti di vista, a volte interessanti e a volte meno, ognuno la vive a modo proprio, ma sicuramente e’ un grande cambiamento, che puo’ portare grande felicita’ e portare via anche parecchio tempo che prima era magari dedicato a viaggiare, fare sport, scrivere il blog, … o semplicemente oziare. 🙂

La 2a novita’ e’ stata da sempre un desiderio inconscio, poi dall’Australia forse un sogno “che chissa’ mai che si potra’ realizzare”, ma soprattutto “chissa’ se avro’ mai il coraggio di provarci! Beh, un grande lavoro d’introspezione, avvenuto per mia inclinazione naturale, spinto dagli eventi e poi fortemente voluto, insieme a delle coincidenze fortuite, come il trasferimento a Zurigo e il rimanere incinta, mi hanno portato a fare dei corsi sia in Australia che poi a Milano presso la Scuola Orafa Ambrosiana e il Politecnico di Milano e a creare il mio brand: V Design Lab. Se siete curiosi, dateci un’occhiata!

Non so’ la frequenza con la quale scrivero’, ma questo blog rimarra’ sempre una valvola di sfogo, ma anche una ricarica d’energia ogni volta che riusciro’ a scrivervi! 🙂

Milan born, I lived in the US although very briefly, Spain (Madrid), Australia (Melbourne) and now Zurich for an exciting new adventure! I'm a curious person, a traveller, a lover of languages and cultures, food, art & design, a marketer and about to become a jewellery designer. I also love traveling and sharing. Travelling is a Life Experience, and it also means new recipes, new styles, culture and so on... you'll find all my love for traveling and what it entails in this blog! I'll share my own real experiences with you so that you can get tips on Australia and more first hand! This blog is in English and Italian, and occasionally in Spanish. Sharing is caring!
