The Night Is Still Young

Two more days and 2014 is finally over! 
It's been a good year, full of new memories, new experiences and new friends. With ups and downs, high and lows. But I'm grateful for everything. "I'm grateful for the storm, it made me appreciate the sun."
I hope 2015 will be even better. I can't wait to see what destiny has in store for me ;)
And of course I've got my New Year's resolutions ready. They're pretty much the same as last year, since I've never taken them seriously, but I like traditions.

Talking about traditions, on New Year's eve I always wear something red and/or with polka dots. I come from a family who believes firmly in them and it is believed that whatever you'll be doing when the clock strikes midnight affects how your whole year will be. You have to make lots of noise, open all doors, windows and lights, and also put money in your pocket. These are some of what I remember. Then again, I'm always too distracted by fireworks to actually pay attention.
What about you and your family? Do you have any New Year's eve traditions?

And how was your 2014? 
Happy New Year in advanced everyone! 

Anyways, I am so in love with Nicki Minaj's new album Pinkprint. I'm not that into her single Anaconda but she really did an amazing job in these following songs: All Things Go, I Lied, The Crying Game, Trini Dem Girls, The Night Is Still Young, Pills N Potions and of course Bed of Lies. Have you listened to any of them yet?

These shots were taken in October.




I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It's pretty early
It's ok, we'll take our time

Gravity

Hey everyone! How was your Christmas? 
Hope you spent it with your family and loved ones. 
I haven't had time to post any of my outfits here (last time was on August), but only on my Instagram so I'll try and make it up during the holidays.
I also changed the template, hope you like it.
These were taken way back on September.





They don't believe that we're
Strong enough to hold on
'Cause I'm the only one to get you
The only one to figure you out

Shake It Off

So happy I'm done with high school, now I can't wait to go to university, start over, make new friends and to finally be free from the chains that kept me from being completely myself.
How's your summer going?
Mine's going perfectly and I'm spending it with the people I love (:

I Lived

So I took off my neck brace just so I could take a few shots in Piazza Duomo.
Spring is in the air so I wore my favorite floral stockings but rather than my outfit, I wanted to show you guys this amazing iPhone cover from Born Pretty!
I’m pretty obsessed with this color so I just had to take it, especially since it’s made of silicon, which is the best cover material to protect one’s phone.
It looks even more cute and sweet with the little teal bunny ears.


Hope when you take that jump
You don't fear the fall
Hope when the water rises
You build a wall

Hope when the crowd screams out
They're screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs
You choose to stay

Emma Watson

I've recently been in a car accident and I am now forced to wear a neck brace for a few weeks. Awesome. Wonderful. Okay, I might be slightly ironic but it sucks. I can't move without feeling pain at my neck. 
Since I had one week of school vacation, I had my week planned out so I could manage school work including my thesis and this blog (in fact I wanted to do several outfit shots).
Instead I've decided to talk about an amazing strong woman I admire. I've wanted to do it for a while now and was particularly inspired at the Oscars so I just had to dedicate this post to her. EMMA WATSON.
Let's start from the most recent outfit she has worn:

Dark Horse

life is really a freakin rollercoaster.




I knew you were
You were gonna come to me
And here you are
But you better choose carefully
‘Cause I, I’m capable of anything
Of anything and everything

Thunder

They say to be good. They convince us that good always wins.
But life is just a tiny bit more complicated. It's never black or white. It's mostly always gray, gray up until the point in which the distinction between good and bad is blur.
I've been studying Schopenhauer, probably the most pessimistic philosopher I've encountered so far, and I believe his ideas are taken on a really extreme level but he's right about certain things like the fact we always want something, and when we get it we are only satisfied for a moment till the desire for something else takes over. If the human nature tends to selfishness and tends to use others for their own purposes, how do we find good? How can we be good? BLACK.
While at school I'm studying Mr. Kill-me-now, at home I've been watching Once Upon A Time, series based on fairy tales, in which no matter the difficulty, the pain or the danger, the good wins. And there's always time for the evil to become good, if they are really willing to change. WHITE.
I may sound deluded, but I'm always gonna be team white, I believe there is good in everyone (even in apparently hopeless subjects)..



I'm a red and fragile rose
Won't grow in the dark alone
Take me there cause I need to find the light

Wait For A Minute

Lately I'm really pressured by my future. 
I've always been a "now" person, always thinking about the moment, and I still am but these days all I can think about is what I'm gonna be, where I'll end up, if i'm making the right choices. A part of me wanna know but where's the thrill in that? 
It's like watching a movie twice, no matter how much you love it, you know exactly how it ends and it's not the same as the first time.



Wait just a minute
Can you wait just a minute?
