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

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

And that’s when Titti told me about “On the Glo”, her sister’s project. So here’s my interview to uncover this fantastic Project! It’s a useful thing, it’s a fashionable thing, that keeps you safer and also an unconventional Xmas gift idea for you! You really need to read …
