Things I Liked – inspiration galore & so much more.

I know…it rhymes!! there’s nothing like a rhyme to cheer me up (galore-more, in case you didn’t notice).
I spent my time this week talking about English & other languages – how hard can they be? or easy? & how about Italian? I know, right -, reading books from my childhood (& my parents’! so moving, to have those 1950s books in my hands), & enjoying the amazing sounds of Shakespeare’s poems. I sound like a school nerd; but who cares. There’s something, in the words I read & hear, that always enchants me…I created a Pinterest board for that, just so I could make absolutely clear how nerdy I am! ahah!

♥ ok so, let’s start with this week’s delights …talking about Pinterest, here’s your usual Most RePinned Pin! love it? I do!

♥ & then it’s surely time for Tumblr‘s Top Post! delicious!

♥ so I’ve promised you inspiring ideas, & I’m gonna keep that promise; but first, let’s read together this awesome Dear Person Who Just Left a Negative Comment About Something On the Internet letter – an open letter to all internet haters! no need to say it, I LOVE IT.

♥  Because you can: make ‘em look is an amazing article on Rookie Magazine that strongly affirms our power to ignore any comment at all, about our looks & behavior & the outfits we choose to rock.

♥  it’s easy to go from self-confidence pro to The Ultimate Cheat Sheet from Re-Inventing Yourself: a guide to start a-new every time you wish to, or whenever you feel you need a make-over. It happens to feel stuck, either emotionally or working-wise; this list truly goes in deep, talking about all aspects you should take into consideration when you want a brand new start. Useful (& by the way, it is also funny)!

♥  & since we touched the subject…here’s an interview to one of my fave inspirational people in the world; a woman that truly re-invented herself from scratch, & spends all her life creating & dreaming: SARK! there’s not much I can say about her, just do this for me: read the interview, & then if you’re interested check her website, & then come back to me & we’ll talk about it. Ok? love ya.

♥  did you have enough already? just one more thing! you look like you need an Emergency Compliment, right now. go get it dear!

Things I Liked – spending time on YouTube!

OOOh yes ! it’s warm & adorable, we can stop wearing coats & start dreaming about summer dresses & no tights …so? where were we?

♥ have you seen this week’s Top Post on Tumblr? oh my goodness. So adorable! I’m really into Disney (always) & Disney princesses – but I truly love them more when they look real…! I recently started a new board to collect all Disney-related-alternative posts…I think it’s much more fun than sticking to classic!

♥ so, talking about Pinterest, right? here’s the most RePinned Pin of the week! yesss …yellow is my spring/summer colour, yes it is. The sun, the sunflowers, lemonade, sand, the heart of daisies…there’s so much bright yellow & gold in these seasons, don’t you think?

♥ oh, & do you wanna know what I spent much of my time on, this week? Youtube! yep. Well, I love Youtube, I follow a lot of channels & I like to go through them every now & then (remember, I told you about my Ellen DeGeneres obsession..? I watch all her show’s episodes online!). & here’s what I most recently found for you: Fat Girls & Leggings – an exhilarating video…make sure you watch it & not stop at the beginning, it’s super inspiring & funny. Best Dresses for Your Body Type – interesting, even tho the girl in the video could wear basically anything on earth; but she gives some good advice. How to Dress Yourself Skinny – same as above: skinny girl giving advice…but some of them are really good: remember, we’re not size-racist!

Fashion Forecast – STRIPES galore !


Everyone has kept telling us that big girls shouldn’t wear (horizontal) stripes …I know! we’ve been hearing that for ages, don’t we??
Well, well, well: forget that, at least for the season to come! I’m starting to see stripes on every fashion blog I visit …of course I see florals too, but that’s a print you always see during spring time. How about stripes?  they look like a big spring/summer hit!
The lovely girl above is GarnerStyle, of course: great fashion blogger, always looking for something new & original.  & what is she wearing? stripes!

I absolutely love a striped dress on the beach …& Stéphanie Zwicky agrees! I think she looks amazing in this dress, very rétro, incredibly classy. She also owns a striped coat, like the one up up above, that she wore in many occasions (like this one). Seriously, this is really a trend!

& then there’s her …my ever loved fashion guru…Big or Not to Big! wearing stripes, of course. Paired with the most lovely pastel pink skirt, ‘cause she’s cute; & some leopard, ‘cause she’s originally stylish. So adorable!

In conclusion, my dearest girls, make sure you wear stripes anytime you want this season!
you’re not only entitled to it, & have full permission from the style universe…you also have some amazing inspiration all around!
