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?

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!

A sweet break in Milano

I had a long break at work today, over two hours, and it’s an awesome sunny day! I’m still out enjoying every ray of it before going back to work, and before the clouds will take away the light. It was the perfect day for walking through the center of Milano eating a fresh focaccia with olives.

I felt the need to sit down and have something warm and sweet to drink, also I was still a little bit hungry so I went to Arnold Coffee, which is a lot like Starbuck’s! There weren’t many people, so I could sit there and relax a bit.

I had a hot Vanilla Latte and this little amazing donut 💜 couldn’t resist to it haha sometimes you just need a vanilla latte and a glazed donut to sweeten up your life!

New project!

Some years ago I started a symphonic metal female band, which got canceled after a few months due to personal problems, but I kept contacts with the keyboardist Federica. We just had the idea for a brand new project, and yesterday we met for the first reharsal!

We are searching for a few other acoustic instrument players, but in the meantime we are writing our own songs and preparing some cover albums to be released soon. Stay tuned for more news!

New make-up pieces

Some weeks ago I went to bed but couldn’t sleep at all, so what’s better than some night make-up shopping online? I wanted to try Make-up Revolution, and I needed to buy a palette and an highlighter, but I had free shipping reaching 30€… so I bought also two lipsticks and a concealer!

I chose this palette over the others because it has many colors I use everyday, like all those brown/purple and the metallic bronze ones. I’d also want to try some dark blue makeups in the future so I went for this “Fortune Favours the Brave”.

The quality is amazing and the price is very low, I never thought eyeshadows by Make-up Revolution could be this good! They blend easily, have a great texture and they are highly pigmented.

I have a very pale skin with cold undertone, and I found the perfect match! This concealer can be used also as a foundation as its own texture is more similar to a foundation and looks amazing on the skin. It has different tones, I chose the C01 (cold, the lightest color!) and it’s just perfect!

Girls, this highlighter is EVERYTHING. It’s a natural white with green/aqua reflexes. It’s the strobe highlighter in the color “Northern Lights”… It’s like having those very lights right on your face. So wonderful.

The first lipstick is actually a large lip pencil, a little bit too fuchsia on my lips now I have red hair, but the texture is great and lasts really long in the day. Completely matte. Lip Euphoria is a full coverage with glossy finish, lasts quite long and feels good on the lips!

In the next post I will have some pictures of the products tested on me, and the link to buy them!💜

Finally recovering!

I have been very sick in the last days, with high fever and soar throat. I couldn’t do anything but staying on the sofa all day, wondering when I would get better. I also lost 3 kilos ’cause I didn’t want to eat anything, and I blame all the medicines I was taking for that.

But now I feel better! The throat is ok, I just need some more few days so I can start singing again. Oh my, I have so many things I need to record and I wasn’t able to do anything!😭 How are you all? Anyone got a flu like me?

I took the DNA Test!

I want to start this post with a simple, but quite unfriendly question: have you ever had racist thoughts? If yes, what would you do if you discovered your DNA actually comes right from the ethnicity you had those thoughts about?
Stop for a moment and think about it.
Or maybe without speaking of racism, when you’re meeting some foreign people, they start speaking in their language ’cause they think you have their same nationality?
This thing happens to me everyday, as almost nobody thinks I’m italian. Mostly Russian people come right at me talking in russian, and they don’t even believe me when I say I come from Italy.

That’s why I decided to take this DNA Test, called “My Heritage”.
I want to know where I really come from, not the nationality written on my passport. I know who my mom and dad are, I know they’re born in Italy from Italian parents… but what happens when we go back in time, searching in the past centuries? Maybe I do have some ancestors from Russia or other East European countries I have never even thought about!

I chose this DNA Test over the others because not all of them are available in my country, and it was one of most cheap with the best results. Low cost, high quality!
You can make it comfortably at home, it wont hurt you as it doesn’t need any blood sample but just a small amount of saliva. Once completed all the steps carefully following the instructions, just send the envelope to the lab, and in 4/8 weeks you will have the results!

“My Heritage” Test contains:

  • Pre-compiled envelope with the Laboratory address (you add yours on the empty lines)
  • 2 cheek swabs
  • 2 vials containing a liquid
  • A small “Biohazard” plastic bag containing a cotton pad
  • Activation code
  • Instructions

To take the test follow the instructions carefully: you need to stop eating or drinking anything at least 30 minutes before taking the test (I went for 1 hour, just to be sure).
First of all, carefully open a swab without touching the cotton-like surface with your hand and rub it inside ONE cheek for 30/60 seconds. Then open one of the vials, insert the swab in the liquid and break the swab end inside (it has a small black line on it, it will break easily), then close the vial ermetically. Do the same thing with the other swab inside the other ceek, then insert both vials in the plastic bag on the cotton pad. Close it and put it inside the white envelope.

Now you just need to activate your kit online or with the smartphone app! Easy, isn’t it? It will only take like 4 minutes of your life, and in a pair of months you will know exactly where your ancestors came from! I think it’s one of the most fascinating things I’ve ever done in my life: in a few weeks I will get to know what my true origins are, and if they are completely different from what I expected.
We should all do this test, some people would be shocked by the results… and it’s not always a bad thing.
