Almost summer! Flowers blooming.

I had to go to my parents house yesterday as I have singing class in the same town, and there was such an amazing weather I had to go out in just jeans and t-shirt! It was so hot it felt like summer. I don’t really like hot weather, but I do love how flowers bloom in this time of the year! My mom takes really good care of them, and they have a big garden, so it’s always full of colored flowers when springtime arrives.

I feel so happy to see all these colors in the garden! Yeah winter is cool, you don’t sweat and there isn’t almost ant bug or mosquito… but there aren’t flowers either! I tought it was all in the garden… but my mom has planted some out of the kitchen and she has also some on the terrace! I would love to have some at my house too, but I really can’t care about flowers… I’m awful at gardening!

How lovely are they?? Also, the last ones smell like vanilla! I think I will try to keep them alive at my home, just so I can smell them everyday (yeah I am a huge vanilla lover!). I spent some time in the garden breathing the first real spring air of the year before going to singing class.

Funny I was dressed with a flower t-shirt! I didn’t have in mind to take all that flower pictures actually hahaha!

“Time to Say Goodbye”, my new cover on Youtube!

I’ve been working on recording and mixing my lead and backing vocals for this one in the past weeks! It’s a song I’ve always wanted to sing, but my voice was too young and untrained for it… now I’ve been studying hard since three years with my new teacher, I felt I could try to sing it. I tried a more operatic style than what I am used to do, to reach better those high notes Sarah Brightman does so perfectly. Now, that’s a voice I truly love!

WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: “Time To Say Goodbye” – Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman (COVER by Rehn Stillnight and Dan Vasc)

The parts originally sung by the italian singer Andrea Bocelli are, in this cover, by Dan Vasc, a singer/youtuber who does mostly metal covers like me. He is the one who had the idea of doing this cover and asked me if I wanted to join! I didn’t even think twice about it, I said yes and practiced hard until I liked the result.

Funny I am italian and this one is the first italian song I have ever recorded! Do you like this one? Which songs would you like to hear sung by me?

Ouch! Wisdom Teeth Surgery…

Hey everyone! I finally feel like posting something. Some days ago I had to remove the last two remaining wisdom teeth. Surgery went fine, but they had to cut me more than expected, and they had to cut the teeth also. I am under antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medicines, but it keeps bleeding and hurting a lot, so that can’t sleep and recovery well. I can’t really concentrate due to the pain, medicines and the lack of sleep, though I have so many things to do….oh my! 😭

The positive thing is I can share some lazy moments with my kitty Anya, who loves sleeping on me! And I am also watching from the beginning all the Saint Seiya series with Davide! I wish to finish tomorrow the things I need to do… like mixing my vocals tracks for a new collaboration! Trying to get a little rest now before my check with the surgeon…

First Ice-cream of the year

I am on an unexpected long lunch break at work! I normally have one hour of break, but today they decided for one and half hour, so I had all the time to eat my lunch and relax a bit before going back to the shop. So now I am sitting here in a small park eating my first good ice-cream of 2018!

I just found out I have Grom, my favorite ice-cream shop in front of where I work in these days, so I had to eat one. I went for yoghurt and salted caramel, which is by far my favorite flavor! What’s your favorite?

Fast makeup for Work

Hey girls! I always used to wear black eyeliner everyday and some eyeshadow, but now I don’t feel like spending too much time on drawing the wing while I prefer just some eyeshadow to emphatize my eyes. This is the make-up I’ve been wearing in the last days at work.

What I used:

  • KIKO Skin Trainer CC Blur (light)
  • ESSENCE Contour Powder Kit
  • WUNDERBROW in Auburn
  • MAKEUP REVOLUTION Fortune Favors the Brave (black eyeshadow)
  • BURBERRY Effortless Kohl Eyeliner
  • SEPHORA Translucent Powder
  • BURBERRY Bold Lash Mascara
  • VICTORIA’S SECRET Lip Stain (Tease)

In fifteen/twenty minutes I am ready without tons of makeup on my face, so it won’t feel heavy over the day. I don’t like being umcomfortable at work, so I try to wear less makeup possibile as I know it may make my skin oily during the day, but I still want to look good.

What do you usually wear when you have to stay closed in a shop or office all day? And what are your favorite products for everyday use? Comment below! 💜

Ready Player One – Review

If you follow my social pages, you know I am a cosplayer and I love everything that has something to do with videogames, movies and so on, that’s why when I saw the trailer of the new Spielberg’s movie “Ready Player One” I thought I HAD to see it.

Ready Player One – Trailer

There are so many Easter Eggs inside this movie like Gundam, The Iron Giant or Tracer (from Overwatch), Batman and Harley Quinn! Also, you can see the characters using in battle some weapons from well known films (Aliens, Dredd…).

The soundtrack is awesome and brings you back to the past years, as most of the songs are famous 80s hits. Many other Easter Eggs are from those years (platform videogames and the car from “Back to the Future”, which is the car used by main character Parzival).

Any videogame player can easily relate to the main characters: sometimes we search for a way to escape our problems and we find it in books, films or videogames. Many of us were also bullied in real life as kids, while in videogames we could play the role of the Hero who saves the world, and we no longer felt weak. When multiplayer games appeared we started creating an avatar and interacting with other players, who had our same interests. Many of us found friendship, others also found love thanks to videogames and to our avatars. That’s exactly what happens in this film: people of all ages live between the real world and Oasys, a videogame universe to which you can connect thanks to a technology very similar to a PlayStation VR, and here they walk, fight and live as their avatars. At first it will remind you of the anime Sword Art Online.

The main characters start growing friendship bonds and love interests even before they see each others in real life, and they go on missions together in order to find three keys, hidden somewhere in this alternate Universe, which can be found only if you solve intricate riddles related to the videogame creator’s private life. If you are a videogame player, you will be totally in love with this movie, and you will hate to leave the cinema once it is finished. I wanted to watch it again and again as it brought back memories of when I was a child and watched my older sister play videogames before I started myself.

Videogames have been one of the most significant parts of my whole life, thanks to them I have known most of my best friends and I found my future husband in videogames and cosplay conventions. All the movie is based on the idea of finding these “Easter eggs” and solving the riddles, and this took my mind back to old videogames where there was the main story, but if you were curious enough to wander around searching for something more, you would end up doing some hidden mission or find some rare treasure. In the next days, I suggest you to spend 2 hours of your life going to the cinema with your geek friends as I did yesterday and watch this movie together. You won’t regret it!

Casual Gothic outfit

I dress in total black almost everyday of my life, and not only for work, but because it’s the only solid “color” I like on me. Some days I also like to dress more gothic/dark, which actually is my true inner style, but I do like a more casual and elegant way to pull out my metalhead soul.

I was going to a convention with Davide, and since I wasn’t going to do any cosplay I dressed with a new bodysuit and skirt I bought at Bershka, along with those wonderful thights by Calzedonia and the leather waist chincher.

I completed the look with some accessories as the two studded bracelets and my favorite lace choker I bought on Aliexpress. Even thought I don’t have any full body picture, I was wearing some gothic shoes with platform heels I found really comfortable for long walkings!

I was wearing a nude metallic lip stain and some natural false lashes ’cause I didn’t want to spend too much time on doing my makeup neither it to be too heavy, but I also like to emphasize my eyes.
Below you will find the links to accessories and clothes I was wearing in the pictures!
