It has been a while… I have several blog posts awaiting to be finished in my drafts and I should really work on these, however, as we are nearing the end of 2018, I wanted to share my resolution for 2019 - which is not something I usually do, but I really felt the need to this year.
Cup of coffee in one hand, I got one of my too many notebooks out and begun making a list, which started to look like this:
lose the pregnancy and post pregnancy weight: eat healthy and exercise more (google workouts to do at home);
be more organised: do not wait till the beginning of January to do my tax return; batch cook food at weekends for the week; keep on top of what needs to be done in the house ;
be more productive: write at least a blog post a month, dedicate more some time to personal projects, procrastinate less. Read More
This is NOT my usual post, as I won't talk about travel or what to do in London. This year has been quite different for me, as at the beginning of it I gave birth to my son, Kamil. I am not one to talk about my pregnancy or share my birth story, however, I would like to share the things I have experienced and learned after becoming a mum.
I didn't need to buy any newborn clothes (or any other size for that matter)- newborn size was way too small. Read More
I took a bit of a break from updating this website and after several months I have finally found time to finish this post. Firstly, this is not a post on how to grow your followers on Instagram, so if that is what you were hoping for you might not want to keep reading this. I often get asked about how I started on Instagram and how long I have been on the platform, so I decided to take a trip down memory lane to talk about my Instagram journey and why Instagram is still - despite all the changes and the algorithm- my favourite social media channel.

My first memory of London is of when I was a little girl watching "Mary Poppins", the scene when Mary Poppins is descending from the sky with her umbrella is the one that stuck with me most: Big Ben, the river Thames and those rooftops made me dream of London from a young age. However, I wouldn't get to visit London until the summer before my last year at High School, when I begged my parents to send me to UK for a few weeks to improve my English, to my disappointment when we booked the trip it was recommended I wouldn't go to London, but a different cities for a better chance to immerse myself in the culture and avoid being surrounded by Italians. So I spent three amazing weeks in Canterbury. Read More
As I reflect on yesterday's sad event in London and try to make sense where there is no sense to be found, I decided this is the perfect time to share a piece I wrote for my Mom. As I tweeted yesterday, this is a time for love and not hate. In Italy we celebrate Mother’s Day in May, we should celebrate our Moms everyday so I was honoured to participate in a ebook which has been put together for Raymond Blanc event at this years Jardin Blanc @ RHS Chelsea Flower , which you can find here, and have the opportunity to talk about how my Mom influences me and what I have learned from her.
