So many passions, so little time.

Hello everybody! 

I hope you are doing fine! 

School is killing me and the only thing that keeps me going right now is the thought that is almost over. I can smell summer but more importantly feel it. 

All april and the beginning of May was awful. Always raining and it was sooo cold and now finally it’s getting warmer and warmer. 

I’ve been wanting to write more than ever. In fact, I’ve starter a new original story and I’m working on it. So far it’s only a few pages and I’m still building it but I’m happy with it and I believe it’s the most important thing. 

I started practicing guitar again too! It’s so good to play, it relaxes me so much. I’m planning on becoming a pro this summer. 

Also my workout is going well. But with all of this stuff going on, plus reading and other things I like, for example musicals right now, my day seems so short and I barely have time to write here. 

No fear though. As said, summer’s coming so I’ll have plenty of time. I hope. 

But it’s already May, can you believe how fast time goes? It’s insane. It seems to me like it was only yesterday when I was doing my Year resolutions. 

Oh anyway. I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend and that you are super duper happy!! 

Good vibes

Xx. Arianna.

I’m so clumsy? Diary, page two.

Hello to everybody and welcome back to my blog.

I’m not as lively as I usually am when I write here and there’s only one reason. I’m in a ridiculous amount of pain. I was crying just a minute ago for how much everything hurts but meh, I’ll survive.

There’s only one thing to blame if I’m hurting so much. I’m on my period. Sorry if that disgusts you (it does to some people for some reason?) but don’t worry I won’t be talking about it.

I just made myself some tea and I’m trying to enjoy life even from this prospective, which, let me tell you, is not easy.

You know what I’ve noticed? I am so damn clumsy. I mean. I already knew, don’t get me wrong, it’s just that, this week I’ve been tripping and falling everywhere I go.

Let’s take flipping yesterday. I not only slept over my alarm, waking up at 7:40 and being super late for school, but I managed to fall off the stairs. I hurt my leg but nothing too serious. I took the bus and when I was gettin off I almost fell, in front of everybody, great.

I hit my knee with the wall next to my seat at school and when I was home I hit my little toe on my coffee table. And that was only yesterday.

This morning I had a shower and when I was getting out of the shower I slipped and fell horribly onto the floor. I was naked, it was cold and I was so sleepy. I tried to not hurt my body too much by putting my hands in front of me but my calculations went wrong and my right hand arrived to the floor earlier than my left hand and it hurts so much right now.

I can barely move my pinky and ring finger and it’s bruised. It hurts. A lot.

And I almost fell again just, what was it, 15 minutes ago? I need to stop walking and just stay still otherwhise I’ll just kill myself.

Anyways.

Have you ever heard of Hamilton, the musical? Oh my God. It’s amazing.

I’ve been obsessed with it for two weeks now and I can’t stop singing the songs in my head and outloud. My sister’s hating me lol

It’s just so much talent in one single musical. I can’t even. If you don’t know it I highly recommend to look for it. It’s worth it. Look up the music on youtube, listen and embrace it. Just like I did!

Jokes apart. It is truly an amazing work and if you have time you should check it out. And if you do know it. ISN’T IT JUST AMAZING. Please someone say it too, say how amazing it is.

Okay I’m done doing that and I’m going to let my hand rest beacuse writing makes it even worst.

I hope you’re havin a wonderful weekend!

Good vibes!

Milan!

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

I’m pretty ill today so I thought I’d take the chance and finally write down everything, and I mean everything about my trip to Milan. 

I figured if I write also about the concert this would be probably the longest post in the history of wordpress so I’m gonna split this two things up and if you’re interested in reading about the concert I’ll soon make a post about it and you can read it right here.

On Sunday I left my house at around 10:30 am, even though I woke up soo early, I was way too excited to sleep. After making my bag, because yes, I did my bag that same morning, after choosing my outfit and doing my makeup I met my sister and her boyfriend since I was going with them. 

Those two cutiepies thought it would be funny to prank me and I almost had a hard attack when they pretended to fight in the car right before we leave and my sister went all crazy and started saying stuff like “we’ll take the train” bla bla bla, after laughing at me so hard we actually left. 

The trip was really long. We stopped a few times including for lunch, after 3 hours on the road we went to this really lovely restaurant, it was small, situated in a really small town, I wish I’d remember the name but I don’t. We had an amazing lunch and we kept going. 


I have to say, I’ve done plenty of long trips but never one was so tiring. I thought I was going nuts staying in that car. 

It took us NINE hours to finally arrive to Milan. I was so happy, not only because I got to finally lay down on a bed, but also because I couldn’t stop thinking about the concert. 

The hotel we booked was nice. My room was pretty big and the bed comfy. I did hate the pillows though. Apart from that, I’m quite happy with our choice. 



We rested for about half an hour, since we arrived at 9 pm or so we were starving and we looked for a restaurant near by. We ended up in this massive beautiful place with great food and great wine.

I did make a bad decision though. I had a small lunch and didn’t eat anything else for the rest of the day, I was starving and the food was taking a while to get to us and wine looked just so delicious (and tasted delicious) I drank too much too fast, well ti be fair it was only one glass but: a) I don’t drink that much and b) My tummy was empty so everything started to spin around and well you can imagine.


I mean I wasn’t drunk, just a bit dizzy and my sister was laughing at me, oh whatever. After eating everything went back to normal, so I guess it didn’t go too bad.

I have to say, I was so tired it took me like five minutes to fall asleep even with those rock/pillows they gave us. 

The next morning, as you can imagine, I woke up super early. I was way too excited to sleep, again. Also I had to straighten my hair and do my makeup and stuff. I had the most relaxing shower, put my, modestly, amazing outfit on and did my makeup etc etc. Finally, after waiting my sister for ages, we went downstairs to have breakfast and I ate sooo much. Everything was delicious.


I just noticed I really don’t have a pic of mu outift I don’t know why sorry.

We decided to go straight to the center of the city since we would be there only a couple of days and of course you can not visit Milan and don’t go to the Duomo so there’s where we went. I also got to meet a friend after years of distant friendship and I was so happy. 



I did feel like a model and you can see a little bit of my outfit.


Friend and I.

There’s one thing I have to say about Milan. Traffic drives you crazy (see what I did there?) No but seriously, it was so annoying, specially since we were late since I wanted to go to Alcatraz as soon as possible to get a good spot for the concert. Alcatraz is the name of the place where the concert was. But we weren’t late only because of traffic, oh no. We managed to lose the car. 

We literally LOSE the car in a city neither of us knew and no one could remember the name of the street were we parked. We walked for about 40 minutes before we finally found it. And well we had lunch at Mc Donalds drive, but only because it was super late and my other friend was already waiting for me. 

As said, if you’d like to know about the concert go read my other post! 

The day after was the day we’d leave. I was so tired I can’t even explain. Also I had a little postconcert depression if you know what I mean. I missed them and my friends sooooo much I just wanted to go back in time to the night before and stop time for ever. 

Well we left at around 12 pm and went to Como that is a city near Milan to have lunch there and oh my god. The food was amazing. Truly amazing. A bit expensive but so worth it.


Also the place and the lake were lovely.


Something that made me extremely happy happened there. Suddenly this guy comes near to me and gives me this bracelet as a gift while telling me that was important to appreciate the little things in life, because those are what really matter because those are the ones we’ll have forever. 


And after another 8-9 hours drive we made it home, safely and tired we went back to our normal lifes. 

Now I miss Milan. My friends and that amazing concert but I have so many good memories of a beautiful city with amazing people. I’m really glad I had this opportunity.

If you have the possibility go visit Milan, is a beautiful place! 

I hope you are having an amazing weekend. 

Good vibes,

Xx

Hello spring!

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

Spring is finally here!! Is my second favourite season after fall. Everything is just so lovely. Specially the weather. I loooove this weather.

There’s sun everyday but it’s not too hot. It’s quite windy so it’s so nice to go for walks. I did it the other day and it was so nice.

I went to the park with a friend of mine to help her study law, well we decided to leave her house and go to the park since it was such a great day and it was worth it.

We sat on swings and studied there, it’s really helpful being under the sun and surrounded by flowers and trees and looking up to the sky and seeing that beautiful blue color with a few white clouds here and there, I missed this so much!

Something else I love about this season is: clothes. I believe autumn and spring are the periods of the year when the best items of clothing are out. In fact, I’m so into it I’ve been thinking to do a post about Spring fashion 2017, my favourite clothes that are on trend, or maybe not and I just think look good during spring, let me know if you’d be interested.

Off topic but… the concert is in less than two weeks!! I’m sooo excited. Eleven days exactly, and I can’t wait anymore! Oh and I’m also excited about visiting Milan since I’ve never been there, I’ll take a lot of pictures, I already know that, and long car rides, they’re so fun, I really do love them specially when you are with people that make it enjoyable and I will be so yay!

Okay, I think that’s enough of exhilarated Arianna.

I hope you’re having a good week! Good vibes!

Oooh I almsot forgot, thank you so so so so so much. I just noticed my blog hit 100+ followers and I’m soo happy, thanks guys!!

Little baby steps.

436fe45746ca2520ff055fd9073fb56e

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

I first thought I could make this post a diary page too but I don’t think I’m ready to fully share the experience I made and I’m still making. I’m here to do something else.

Someone has told me, just a few days ago, that even little achievements are important and I should be proud of them. Because they are what they are. Even a little progress is progress. It doesn’t always come in big chunks.

You don’t have to change your life from one day to another but you can start today, a little thing can make difference. It doesn’t have to be scary, just a little step forward to what you want and who you want to be.

Personally I’m really proud of myself for what I’ve done. It might seem like a small, meaningless step, to some people but to me it’s huge. It’s something I was scared to do, cause I was scared to actually face the facts. But I did it. It took courage and almost a panic attack but I did it and it was so worth it.

For a second I thought I did the wrong thing. My whole body was shaking after the experience even though, as said, it wasn’t something bad, at all. Infact it’s probably the best decision I’ve made so far this year. Still my body was shaking and my heart was beating so fast I though I was about to faint, right there, in that exact moment.

Then I realized, I was happy I did it. I was grateful I finally felt brave enough to face my problems and do something to fix them instead of just ignore them and expect them to go away magicly.

Problems don’t simply disappear. Trust me they don’t. Ignoring a problem? It won’t make it go away, it will just distract you for a moment and then the whole thing will literally slap you in the face.

You are strong enough. We all are strong enough to make things change, even when we feel we can’t, we can. You only have to take a baby step.

.

How do you face your problems? Or do you?

Diary, page one.

Hello everyone and welcome back to my Blog!

It’s been a while since I’ve written here and I missed it so much!

I know I said in my resolutions that I wanted to post more and… failed immediately. Sorry about that. The year has just begun though so I can make this up, I hope.

Sometimes I just don’t know what to talk about and sometimes I have so many ideas and still don’t know how to write them down. But, you know, the main reason I started a blog is because I like talking with people and I love sharing little things about my life. So I thought it’d be nice to open some kind of diary. Something different from what I’ve posted so far.

I won’t be writing everyday, of course, but everytime I want to talk to you guys about what’s going on in my life. Also i’d love to know what you’re up to. A little chat you know.
The reason I haven’t post in such a long time is that I started working. Like not a proper job but almost.

You may know that I go to school and is not quite easy to find time to do this, plus work and working out it’s even harder. Yeah I actually started working out again properly, sooo happy about it.
I’ve been looking for a job for a long time now because I always thought it would be easier for me to buy everything I need if I didn’t have to ask everytime my parents for money. Finally I got a job, something really easy but still it does take a lot of time.

Luck this time was on my side though since I got the job when I most needed it. If you wonder why, well there’s this concert I need money for. I never realised getting money was so difficult until I “needed” it. My mom didn’t want me to go since it’s in another city, like 6 hours drive from where I live but I managed to convince her, I begged so much you have no idea, and finally she gave me the permission. I, though, have to pay for eveything. And I mean everything. Ticket, hotel, gasoline etc.

Doing all of that is been really stressful, it took me ages to find a good hotel at a reasonable price that’s not too far away from where the concert is. Still I’m very happy and everytime I think I’m too tired to keep working, or I simply want to procrasinate everything and take a nap instead, I remember how much is worth it and how much this concert, this band, means to me.

Also, As said, I started workingout again, like properly. Twice a week and when I can even three times a week, I work hard. I’m trying to focus mostly on legs, don’t know why, just feel like it, and I discovered I enjoy workingout almost as much as writing! It makes me feel so much better in every aspect of my life.
I think is enough about me. New work, a concert to go to and workout started again. Also I’ve already written a few posts to public, I just need to give them a read and schedul them.

Tell me, what’s new with you guys? How is your year going so far?

My Makeup Routine.

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!
Being a very lazy person, during the winter, when the cold is a magnet for the bed, I do not want to get up and especially to wear makeup. Although I like doing it, I would never put a hundred different products on my face. Sometimes I really don’t care if I look like a zombie. So, over the years, I have “created” a very simple daily routine. Something like “Go to school makeup.”
The quantity and kind of products I apply depends on how good or bad my skin looks on that exact day.
When I’m having really bad skin days, which happens mostly once a month, I start with foundation, I usually use the NYC Smooth Skin but recently I started using the Avon Magix Advanced Foundation which personally I find spectacular even if a bit hard to blend.


To avoid getting oily during the day, specially in my T zone, I apply the Maybelline New York perfecting powder.


I then do my brows. Doesn’t take long. I use the Kiko Eyebrow Sculpt, Automatic Pencil.


To go to school I started using the NYC Cheek Glow Powder Blush. The pigmentation is not really good but the colour is really delicate and natural and I love how my skin looks with it.

Last I put on some mascara, only to seem less sleepy. I’ve been using the Debby, All In One mascara and I’m loving it.


I actually don’t wear lipstick in the morning. I find it just too much, specially for school. I only put on some lip salve to protect my lips from the cold and the wind.
It’s a really natural kind of makeup, really comfortable for school.
That’s it. I hope you liked the post! Is the first time I try to do one of these so I hope I did alright.
Have a lovely week!

My New Year Resolutions

tumblr_static_tnnumblr_static__640

 

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog!

As every year I have resolutions in mind for this new 2017, this time though I’d like to actually stick to them, or at least try.

  • I think one of the most important resolutions I have this year is to work out more. Not only to look better physically but also to improve myself on health and mentally. Being in a better shape personally makes me feel better about myself, more comfortable in my body and this year, instead of making a problem about it, (as I have done for a long period of my life) I decided I want to embrace this part of me.
  • Stop wasting my time and finding excuses to not do what I want to do. No excuses. I want to read more, write more, hangout more with my friends, discover new things, posting more in here etc.
  • Focus more on my studies. I’ve always been a good student but I have never given 100% of myself to school. I’m not saying I will. Not yet. Probably not this year since I’m way too lazy to do such a thing and I want to keep this real. But I’ll do more, that for sure.
  • Start again with my music studies. So far I can play two instruments, the guitar and the piano, not very good though. It’s been a long time since I have practiced the last time and this year I want to change that.
  • Last but not least. Believe more in myself. For so long I’ve struggled with who I am and who I want to be. I had to learn again how to love the person I am and whom I have become. I’m enough. From today, right in the moment you are reading this I’m going through this journey unknow by me and I know I’ll do it. It will take time and it won’t be easy but I believe sharing what I’m going through and maybe post it in here will help me do that.

I really
want to make some changes in my life. I’m not saying I will be able to do all of this in two or four months. Not even a year. But today is the day I start.

I hope you guys feel as inspired and determinated as I do right now.

Healthy body, healthy mind, happy life.

I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

Xx

Arianna.

 

 

 

 

 

Thoughts.

Welcome 2017! Stay positive.

Hello you guys and happy New Year.

I’d like to take a moment to realize that 2017 is actually here. And this year I’m really turning 17. Sounds crazy to me.

2016 personally was a good year. I expirienced new things, learned some others and met so many amazing people but I believe one of the things I’m most grateful things I’ve done is starting this blog.

I’ve seen some people saying “I’m not expecting anything for this year. It’ll be crap anyway.” Let me tell you something. That’s not how you freaking do it.

YOU GOTTA BE POSITIVE. You control the situations as you control your life. Don’t let a bad day become a bad week. Nothing’s perfect and ofcourse life isn’t. We all have bad days but we must not give up or stop fighting for what we want.

A positive mind brings positive results. If you know you can do it you will do it. No one can stop you but you. Many times we don’t even realize that we are our only obstacle.

You can do it. You are stronger than you think. Don’t push yourself down.

Visualize all your goals for 2017.

This is going to be my year. I know it, I’ll make it happen. It doesn’t matter how hard and far my goals seem today, but how closer they’ll be tomorrow.

Be happy guys. Trust in yourself. Work hard and fight for your dreams, make them possible.

I hope you’re having and will have an amazing 2017.

Love. xox
