Needing an Unconventional Xmas Gift Idea? Want to support a Special Project? “On the Glo” is the way to go!!! // State cercando un’idea regalo originale per Natale? Magari supportando un Progetto Speciale? Ecco la soluzione: “On the Glo”!!!

Well, how did I find about the “On The Glo” Project? As most times, through a dear friend. We were catching up after a while, since I moved to Australia. When you’re far away you’re more prone to tell about yourself, your dreams, your projects, and so on. And so I did share with Titti my interest and passion towards jewellery and the desire of keeping this passion alive and maybe creating something in the future. The entrepreneurship theme seems to be a pretty trendy topic lately, although I’ve known it all my life somehow, unconsciously or not, since I was a kid, but had to go through a lot of amazing, exciting and interesting experiences before understanding my motivation, interests, etc… in short myself more deeply. 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 …

My ‘Aussie’, but multicultural haircut // Il mio taglio ‘australiano, ma multiculturale

Ho preso il coraggio a due mani e deciso di condividere la foto del mio taglio. A molti non freghera’ un granche’, ma visto che alcuni me l’hanno chiesta, non c’e’ niente di male nell’era del ‘selfie’, instagram, ecc… Eccola qui… Per carita’, nulla di drammatico, ed era in effetti cio’ che cercavo, solo la piega non mi ha esaltato, troppo da ‘bambola’ e forse per fortuna che non ha tenuto molto… Qualcuno mi ha anche consigliato di sorridere la prossima volta e ha ragione. Quando faccio le foto son talmente concentrata (a scattare un profilo decente ;)) che me ne dimentico, ma quando scatto agli altri, la cosa strana, e’ che sorrido anch’io! 🙂 p.s. Perche’ australiano, ma multiculturale? Leggete il mio posto precedente http://wp.me/p2LzYl-Hr ———- // ———- I decided to win over shy and “who cares about your haircut?” and poublish actually 2 photos. As I was mentioning, most people won’t really give a damn about it, but as someone asked me about it, why not? We’re in the ‘selfie’, instagram, fb era, …

1st Haircut in Australia? // Primo taglio in Australia?

Sometimes we believe that there’s no place like our home country. There they do everything, or most things, better. Let’s take Hair-cutting and Italy. Well, objectively they cut your hair very well in Italy and my experience relies actually on Milan (lately Adore’) where I lived most of my life. If I say I had my 1st Haircut in Australia last week, it’s not true…I should say “since I’m back”. I once I had a haircut at Bondi beach with my friend Martina in 2001 and I was actually pretty happy with it! 🙂 But I can say I had my 1st cut in Melbourne 2 weeks ago and I survived! Just joking! As per my first lines, thinking I cannot have my hair cut anywhere else in the world (I’ve been back twice to Italy and I had my hair cut while I was there), I asked people to understand where to go, once passed the idea of hairdressers being more expensive here. As I liked the haircut style of my friend Penny, I …

MADE IN ITALY … WOW!

I’ve been living in Melbourne out of 1 and a half suitcase for about 2 months and despite that I managed to get compliments on my attire (clothes, accessories, shoes) from random people on a tram, after a pilates class  and actually without trying too hard. This is not a kind of show-off line just to state how cool I am, but just to underline the fact that in Italy “we” make really nice products, especially Fashion-wise. And these kind of compliments were very welcomed for different reasons: they make me proud once again to be Italian and remember Italians are good at many things they allow me to interact with people and have a nice chat that help me understand more the Australian culture, just make me feel more integrated into the community or just have a good time they just some time cheer up my day, if I’m maybe a bit low for whatever well, at least I’m well dressed and have a chance here, since a lot is based on first impression …

Tacchi alti per non imbarcare / High Heels to save money

Stamattina presto avevo il volo per tornare a Melbourne da Sydney. Volavo Tiger Airways, una low-cost cinese, tipo Ryanair o Easyjet, che opera in Australia e verso altre destinazioni in Asia. Con prezzi competitivi e un po’ più permissiva rispetto a Ryan e Easyjet perché ti lascia portare a bordo 2 colli, per esempio un trolley e una borsetta, l’importante è che il peso totale sia pari a 10Kg. All’andata tutto in regola, forse un Kg in più che pero’ è stato tollerato, ma avendo comprato un libro e delle riviste al ritorno già superavo il limite. Soprattutto all’andata non mi avevano pesato la borsa. Colpa mia, non ero così sull’attenti come mio solito perché ero un po’ stanca. Comunque l’hostess di terra, che solamente dopo ho scoperto stesse facendo training a un’altra ragazza e per questo era così ligia, lucky day!, mi ha consigliato di vedere se riuscivo ad eliminare o a mettermi addosso qualcosa per evitare la multa di 70 AUSD$. Diciamo che è stata proattiva e molto collaborativa, e di questo la …
