I’ve never been the cool kid at school, the only times I got to sit at the back of the school bus was when nobody else had or was going to. I rarely got invited to the parties and if I did, I was the kid with the glass of fanta, hiding in a corner, wondering what’s so special about coca cola and why, no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t fit in. Why the other kids didn’t find interesting all the stuff I found amazing, and why it is so damn hard to be a kid sometimes.
Those are the years our character starts to develop and the level of self-confidence and consciousness is set in stone. But when you haven’t been the cool kid in the past, most of the times you won’t automatically develop what in fact looks like an innate cool attitude towards the world and the people around you as a grown up. You can, but it won’t come easily.
You’ll have to work hard on yourself, you will have to write daily on a piece of paper (and then re-read) all the reasons why you adore yourself, what makes you who you are and what aspects of your personality you can still work on and make better.

Before purchasing a phone that actually supported Instagram, I really wasn’t sure I would have liked it or not. Most of the images shot & filtered I saw on Twitter weren’t really looking nice, the quality was awful and some colours just too full and heavy.
Then I got this shiny new phone, tried the app and fell in love.
The pictures quality is still awful, some filters are just too heavy and they don’t do any photo any good. But! These elements really make a good challenge and having a board with photos taken here and there randomly make a nice digital album full of memories.
Here’s the best of my Instagram from the last 5 months.

“I am more excited about our Two’s Day than I was for our wedding!”
This is the last thing Alessandra told me the evening before meeting up at her place, a rather lovely cosy house in the south of London where she lives with her 1 year husband. You might remember them from their wedding last year in Naples and because I rarely miss a chance to mention Alessandra and to sing her praises as she is one talented lady.
Every time I had the opportunity to work with her and Salvatore, they’ve been the loveliest people and that morning they made no exceptions. I was welcomed by coffee and Nutella pancakes. Their tiny bright kitchen made for the cosiest atmosphere and the calmest of the mornings.
We had the luck to get a warm and sunny day, probably the very first Spring-y weekend of the year, and so we got in the car and drove to one of Ale and Salvo’s favourite spots in London: Herne Hill Farmers’ Market, followed by the second coffe of the day and a stroll in Brockwell Park.
I bloody love these two.
