Free

There are people who had everything handed to them: their every wish was their parents' comand. And that's just their luck, but what I can't stand are those selfish people that consider themselves above everyone else.
Then, there are humble people.
And those are the ones I admire, those who go through hell, those who work their ass off just to elevate themselves from a situation they are not satisfied of. 
But I guess we're all free. Free to do what we want. To be who we want. Free to choose. Waste it or fulfill it. It's up to us.
I dedicate this post to a beautiful song of Rudimental feat. Emeli Sandé, Free.




Tryna find my place, some place
I drink a little more than recommended
This world ain’t exactly what my heart expected



See, whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
But, whoa, at least I am free, I am free

Royals


We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
We don't care, we aren't caught up in your love affair
And we'll never be royals

Story Of My Life

Words words words. To be understood, we always need to talk and express ourselves every single time. But sometimes don't you wish you had someone in your life who could get you simply by the look on your face? I'm searching for that one guy who will share my same vision of life and dreams, who will love and support me unconditionally. That one guy that will sweep me off my feet. 
I've been told too many times that I watch too many romantic movies/series, that I'm dreaming cause life can't be like in movies, that I have to "accontentarmi", an Italian word that doesn't have an accurate exact English translation, it means "to be satisfied with, to be content with". And I think it's cause Americans don't believe in settling for less, when they know that each person has the capacity to reach the stars. They believe in dreams, in finding their one true love, in believing. Right now I really want to live in the US.
I've been listening to "Story Of My Life" of One Direction and it's so peaceful. I don't know how but it's one of those songs that keep me warm, almost safe.

Written in these walls are the stories that I can't explain
I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days

And I'll be gone gone tonight
The ground beneath my feet is open wide
The way that I been holdin' on too tight
With nothing in between

Written on these walls are the colors that I can't change
Leave my heart open but it stays right here in its cage

Although I am broken, my heart is untamed still

And I'll be gone gone tonight
The fire beneath my feet is burning bright
The way that I been holdin' on so tight
With nothing in between

And I been waiting for this time to come around
But baby running after you is like chasing the clouds

I hope that by following my blog, you now get what kind of girl I am.
I get easily inspired.. By my surroundings, by a song or a melody, by a movie or an event. By art. On this post I mentioned lyrics of Story Of My Life, and the pictures are NOT mine but from Instagram.

Ps. I'll be doing blog posts of my outfits again soon (:

Eighteen.


September 23
I'm officially 18 years old.

One of the first thing that came in my mind? "Damn, now I have to change my description on IG, Twitter, Vine and other social networks I can't remember right now"

Today was supposed to be just like any other day, I had nothing special in mind. Instead I ended up seeing my very first fashion show

I was so excited. 

When me and my friend arrived inside, ready to see the new collection of Carlo Tivioli, there was a totally whole different environment. Elegance. Finesse. Art. La bella vita. Those were the only words that could come out from someone's mouth in the attempt of describing the beauty we were surrounded by. Those 15 minutes were hypnotizing, making me realize how much I want to be in the fashion world.

I've changed taste about several things so many times and I know I still will. So today, I want you to know my likes, what's in my heart and mind, simply I just want you to know me. And in the future, I wanna remember who I was. 

SONG ON REPEAT: Wrecking Ball by Miley Cyrus; Burn by Ellie Goulding; I Wish by Cher Lloyd; Stay The Night by Zedd (I have so many moree these days: Roar, You Make Me..)
SONG I LISTEN TO WHEN I'M SAD: Tonight I'm Getting Over You by Carly Rae Jepsen
ALL-TIME FAVORITE SONGS: What's My Name by Rihanna; With Me by Sum 41; Who Says by Selena Gomez (hmm, I've just noticed they all start with a W!)
SERIES I WATCH: How I Met Your Mother, SUITS, Modern Family, America's Next Top Model, The Big Bang Theory, Hawaii Five-0, 90210, Gossip Girl, Carrie Diaries, Two And A Half Men, CSI.
LAST FILM I'VE SEEN: The Bling Ring
ULTIMATE FAVE FILM: Moulin Rouge
OBSESSION: Nailart & MUSIC
IN MY WISHLIST: the iPhone 6 that still has to come out and a dress of Red Valentino
FAVE DJ: Avicii & Zedd
FAVE SINGER: Rihanna
FAVE RAPPER: MACKLEMORE!
FAVE MODEL: Cara Delevingne
ROLE MODEL: Blake Lively
FAVE COLOR: Turquoise
TATTOO: Getting my second tattoo soon, I already know what and where.
CURRENTLY FANGIRLING: Don Benjamin, from ANTM Cycle 20
"SECRETLY" FANGIRLING: Bieber & 1D (judge me all you want, but they're soo cute)
FRIENDS OR FAMILY: BOTH!
FOOD I CAN'T RESIST: any sweets, especially pastries :3
I LOVE PEOPLE THAT: are free spirits 
I LIKE A GUY THAT: is confident and seems to have the whole world under control.
I HATE PEOPLE THAT: judge and step on someone just so they could feel secure about themselves
WHAT I VALUE MOST: My relationships with the people I love
BEST MEMORIES: At my house in Montréal, my vacations, my night outs & my lovely Belgium
IN MY LIFE I WANT TO: succeed, love and be loved, live this wonderful life, love the work I'll do, be nice and humble, appreciate what I have and not care of what others think!
PROHIBITED DREAM: live like if I was in a movie or a music video
QUOTE OF MY LIFE: An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it's going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.


Okay this seemed so much more detailed and fun in my mind.
Oh well, I'll just continue updating it if something comes up in my mind.
Forgive me if this is not really fashion-related.

We Can't Stop

At school they don't teach you how much life gets tough, how hard everything gets and how to actually get through it step-by-step. But it does gives you the opportunity to meet great people. That's where I met my bestfriends, exactly 4 years ago and it's to them I dedicate this post. They're the ones who told me to continue updating my blog and not to give up.

Friends, I mean our real friends, are not all those we hang out with. They are the ones who make us a better person, who we can count on anytime, who we can talk about absolutely anything and most importantly with whom we can be our-real-fun-wild-self!

Oh, and three things.
Distance is not strong enough to break things like a true friendship.
And to be old and wise, you must first have to be young & stupid! 
Yeah, I watched the VMAs. Miley did her twerking and I don't hate her, even Justin Timberlake, Rolling Stone and Adam Lambert defended her.



If you're not ready to go home,
can I get a hell no?
Cause we gonna go all night
Till we see the sunlight alright!

Boomerang

Hmm, I haven't posted anything for nearly two months! The main reason is cause it has been so freaking cold here and when it's cold, I get lazy. Then lately I just can't think straight, I keep losing my train of thought and I can't concentrate on anything I try to do (no, i'm not high!). I convince myself the whole day I'm going to study, but I end up procrastinating. That bad patch is over and I'll make up for the lost time.

In Italy we have these so-called "stage", during which you get to see the daily routine of a job you wish to pursuit. Of course none of what my school had to offer concerned fashion. So as my teacher suggested, I searched on my own. After a week of unsuccessful enquiries, a friend's friend who was in the fashion business told me it's very hard to find stylists, journalists or photographers willing to do assist me and usually I have to have relatives in the area.. and lots of connections. I have neither but this is what I want, and I'll do everything to be in the fashion world.

How about you? What is fashion for you? A hobby or something more?

Lazy procrastinator x



The world spit me out & now we're spinning around
lost in a free fall

Forever going down, and breakin' through the ground
When I thought I reached the end, I start to fall again

I Found You

I recently found a box of my mom's old sweaters and I have been wearing them all day & everywhere! Here's a peek of one of them. You will probably notice I keep trying to pull this Roots sweater, you probably also understand why ahah



I found you, in the darkest hour
I found you, in the pouring rain



I found you, when I was on my knees
And your light pulled me back again
