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

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.

Photography

Hello everyone!

How’ve you been? I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

I have always loved photography. I love the concept of having something to remind a small piece of a day of your life. All moments are unique, all moments are important and I find fascinating how we have the possibility of remember it by rewatching it.

I love memories, I love remember something I’ve done. That’s why I keep a diary. I think it’s just fun and magnificent see as a third person how much I have grown up and changed with years.

I believe we all should just take a moment to appreciate little things, to remember every single scene in our lifes. We only got one, we should live it until the end!

Being only 16 I don’t have plenty of money so I don’t own a good camera to take pictures with but I’m working on it. The first camera I wanna buy is a Polaroid. I’m so passionate about polaroids! I hope I’ll have the money soon or get it for Christmas!

I thought to leave you one of my favourite quotes of all time.

“Ogni volta che premo il pulsante dello scatto, è come se conservassi ciò che sta per sparire.”

“Every time I take a picture it’s like I’m saving what is about to disappear.”

Writers problems

 

power-of-words-by-antonio-litterio-creative-commons-attribution-share-alike-3-0.jpg

 

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog!

I’ve been so busy these days I didn’t have a minute to relax or do anything that wasn’t study. Finally we have a couple days off and I wanted to spend a while here. So how you’ve been?

 

Sometimes I feel like people doesn’t realize how hard writing is. Like every aspect of it has to be how you have it in mind and if you don’t get what you were picturing it all gets so frustrating. 

I started writing at the age of 13, I didn’t know it would become a real passion, a way to say everything I want to say without the fear of being judged. 

Almost four years later I still have so much to learn. I feel like I’ve learn so many things and still know nothing. 

Right now I’m trying my best to write in a language that’s not even mine, and trust me, it’s quite an achievement for me. 

 

I thought I would do a list of writer problems, just beacause, why not:

  • The title. I don’t think I know a single person that wanted to write a story and had straight away a perfect title. 
  • Not to change your mind right in the middle of the story. Maybe it is just me, but if I’m writing a story it’s 90% probable that I won’t be happy with the plot anymore.
  • Finding the narration way you feel more comfortable with. I have changed so many times the way I narrate my stories I can’t even.
  • Narrative/Artistic block. It’s soo frustrating when you know exactly where you want your story to go or what you want to write but you can’t find the way to do it.
  • Needing to write something but have nothing. I have it all the time.
  • When you’ve got sparses ideas but not idea how to put them on paper.
  • Trying to think of synonymus so you won’t have to use the same word. And if can’t find any.. panic.
  • People who “writing doesn’t sound too difficult”. I’ll kill you in your sleep if you say that smh.

 

Right now I can’t think of any others but I’m sure I’m forgetting something. If you got any please tell me, it’ll be fun to know I’m not the only one with these problems.

I hope you enjoyed this little improvised post! See you next time.

Good vibes ❤
