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 …

POSITIVE MONDAY ! – Do you need some extra motivation to do something healthy? // Bisogno di una spinta in piu’ per muoversi e mangiare bene?

Eating well and doing sports should be part of our daily routine and it’s up to us to keep it up, but as we all know, it’s not always easy. Millions of things come up or we are just lazy or just the day you decided to go to the gym your mate invites you to grab a beer or whatever. I’m though firmly convinced that involving others really helps, as doing some activity together or sharing healthy recipes, own goals or achievements! It helps even more when an Insurance company, Medibank, launches an advertising campaign “Generation Better” (or #GenBetter) aimed to help you lead a healthy life, by sharing tips, yummy healthy recipes or just motivating you to go out there and do something: “Give it a go”. It also tells you nobody expects you to be a champion on your first day and not to worry about it, but to try to keep doing it , step by step, as long as you like it. It motivates you even more when by sharing …

POSITIVE MONDAY! What is it about? An inspirational video – #GenBetter // In fondo di cosa si tratta? #GenBetter

It’s been a while since the last time I wrote, but I really wanted to share this inspirational video featuring Rod Laver, the greatest Australian Tennis Champion, who holds the record for most singles titles won in the history of tennis, with 200 career titles (Source: Wikipedia). By the way, the main tennis arena in Melbourne, where the Australian Open are played, is named after him. It inspires all Australian to get better, to get moving, to do something or as the ad says: “It’s not about expensive gear …or being No. 1…It’s just about getting out there and having a go, do something…encouraging every Australian to have a go, all part of Generation Better #GenBetter Eventhough it’s a Medibank commercial, just absolutely watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CksvfeLJ8-8 See here other #GenBetter TV commercials: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%20%23GenBetter%20&sm=12 ——— // ——— Dopo qualche settimana di silenzio, volevo proporvi questo video che secondo me ispira a fare, a muoversi, e soprattutto rida’ il buonumore! Per chi non lo sapesse l’”attore” della pubblicita’ e’ Rod Laver Arena, il piu’ grande campione …

POSITIVE MONDAY! – Start with the sun (inside) // Inizia il lunedi’ con il sole (dentro)

Good morning Monday! Today it’s a very windy cloudy Monday, not for sure a way to positively start the week… because of the weather after a beautiful sunny Sunday and because it’s a Monday. Anyway I think we can always try to change our attitude and our mood ourselves. Personally, probably like many other people, the sun puts me in a positive mood. It really works as an extremely big boost for me and I can jump around, maybe only with my mind and my mood, only because it’s a beautiful sunny day! I though know it can’t always be sunny and sometimes you need a cloudy day to really appreciate the sunshine again. Anyway I’d suggest everybody to think about happy, light thoughts, a happy song, visualize a space full of light like a beach or flowery field, colourful images, set yourself a goal for the day. It really helps and it really does work for me! I hope for you too! So here I leave you with this bright picture I took yesterday …

POSITIVE MONDAY! – Que’ suerte tengo! // I feel so lucky! // Sono fortunata!

Hoy si’, hoy es tiempo de escribir un post en castellano! Si’ porque hoy tambien creo que tengo suerte! Y sera’ por 2 motivos: 1. Estoy trabajando en esta galeria de arte, Porthole Gallery, como Marketing y Administracion, y de repente entra una senhora chilena que parece muy simpatica y de hecho lo es. Me pregunta sobre la galeria, hablamos, le pregunto si vive cerca y me comenta que es chilena. Entonces ya empiezo a hablar castellano, encantada de la vida! Hablamos de la galeria, que expone pinturas y esculpturas con tema marinero. Les gustan y le cuento que la venta de estas obras ayudara’ a los marineros del mundo que con su trabajo nos llevan la mayoria de los productos que compramos hoy. Me habls del porque esta’ de vacaciones en Melbourne, de su experiencias pasadas en Inglaterra, de cuanto aprendio’, de como se lo paso’ fenomenal, y cuando se va, me da’ un beso y me regala una sonrisa espectacular! que quiero mas de la vida? Bueno, claro que le pedi’ de estar …

POSITIVE MONDAY! – Monday Positive Start!

Just a quick note & video to start a new week with a positive attitude! We know Mondays can be quite hard sometimes. Spring has just started, UpAbove is still summer, we can make what we want out of our life. I’m quoting my friend Carlos: “Half an hour can change your life”,for the positive, or even just a minute! (Original quote in Spanish: “Una media hora te puede cambiar la vida”) So let’s take it slowly, relax, stop for a moment and listen to this people singing a song in Federation Square, just in the Melbourne CBD.
