Know your own happiness

 When I took these I was still half asleep because I had gone dancing the previous night and I came home at around four in the morning hoping to sleep till at least ten o'clock but I forgot to deactivate my alarm so I ended up waking up at eight.

And yes, I am one of those weirdos who read while walking :-)

I've been gone so long

Sunday, November 11, 2012

Wow I just realized it's been ages but I haven't been idle! I have been busy running, studying and doing other adult stuff!

I just realized that I haven't gone to the beach at all this year. How sad! I really miss the good old days when I could go to the beach everyday and just relax.  I hope things change for the better soon before I have to start studying again!

Long time no see!

I'm the worst blogger ever! I have been gone for so long! I had exams and other family issues so i'm excused, yes? I hope to post more outfits(real ones) now that i'm back. Anyway, when I got home today from my last exam (for this session at least) the first news I read was about Sherman Hemsley's death. Even though I didn't grow up in the 70s-80s I really loved this show and when I need something to lift my spirits it's the only one I go to!! R.I.P Sherman Hemsley.

Ready for summer!

Friday, June 8, 2012

While most people go bikini shopping and waxing, this is how I get ready for summer.... I buy books! Since I started university I don't read as much as I used to. Summer is the only time of the year I get to relax with a good book for more than once a week.
This summer is dedicated to classics(obviously).

These are my favourite Red Carpet looks. I just love her simple elegance and her elegant take on trends.

Lazy Sundays

Monday, May 7, 2012

I just love Sundays because I can take a break from school work and just relax with a book or take a walk. I also read for pleasure during the week but on the bus or in the afternoons and at night before bed and it's not much because I always fall asleep.

 It feels good to wear shorts without tights!!

 I love my murano watch! I bought it four years ago in Venice.
I finally found earrings (studs) i'm not allergic to!! And they were cheap. I have spent lots of money for earrings i can't wear even.. not even for a few minutes :-(
I swear I do dress up ;-) when I go out but I never get the chance to take photos of my outfits because I'm either running late or too agitated to take photos(i change outfits way too much leaving my room a total mess every time)

Springy weather

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

This is something I wore last week before the weather went crazy over here! It's cold, windy and raining! We had such a good start *sniff sniff* what went wrong??
 Anyway this is what I wore. It was a beautiful sunny day. The sun always puts me in a good mood. Sorry for the awkward pictures though. I'm looking for a good camera that doesn't cost a lot. Any suggestions?

Ciao! Questo "outfit" risale a settimana scorsa quando il tempo era bello. Non ci capisco più niente! A che c'era il sole a che era tornato l'inverno. Mah! Mi mette una tristezza questo tempo così perchè adoro il sole(per questo adoro il sud).
Scusate per le foto un po' strane ma sto ancora usando il mio telefonino. Vorrei comprarmi una macchina fotografica economica ma buona... Consigli??

 Awkward! I was trying to show the shoes simple black ballet flats :)
 Sorry for the mess in the background.. I had just come in from uni :-)
Scusate il disordine...ero appena rientrata dall'uni :-)

I like being comfortable when I go to uni because I spend the whole day there. This is my go-to lazy day outfit as well.
I absolutely love these booties(?) Very simple and comfortable.

What do you wear to university/college??  Should some trends be worn in semi-professional environments??

Hello :-)

I left Zimbabwe when I was sixteen and  lived in South Africa for two years. In 2006 I left Cape Town for Italy. It hasn't been an easy journey and I had a lot of experiences good, weird and bad. I started this blog because I wanted to talk about a few things: life as an immigrant, as a law student  and trying to look as stylish as possible on a tight budget. About trying to fit in a place where most people have seen black people but never had a conversation with them.  I hope to connect and start a comunity with other black girls in Italy because we are quite rare on the web especially when it comes to beauty/fashion and just blogging in general.
I'll also be talking about my locs which I've had for a year now.

Benvenuti! Non lo chiamerò un fashion blog perchè è semplicemente un "diario personale" dove condividerò tutte le cose che mi piacciono. Spero che diventi un luogo dove scambiarsi consigli sulla moda/bellezza e sulla cura dei capelli afro.
