DIY from head to toe #10

Hi there girls! Sorry if I skipped a week, but I've been busy. On last episode's though, Alice suggested a theme for today: "Mad men".
I've to say it was damn difficult to find related tutorials but I managed somehow and I hope you'll like it. Enjoy?

Nerding around

Yesterday I discovered that I play volleyball way better when I'm pissed off XD It's a great stress reliever, especially when you hit! YES!

Talking about nerd-er topics.. any Supernatural fans around here? Saturday was the season final night! What do you think about it? I liked it a lot, even if the thought that crossed my mind after the end was: "Dean, you're such a loser". The poor man got through all sort.. hell, heaven and now purgatory.

If you're a fan make sure to watch the gag reels, they're made of pure awesomeness >8D

I finally managed to finish "2 broke girls" (aka "Boobs and cupcakes") first season too. It was kinda unexpected when Marta Stewart actually popped out of a booth o_O And I love Sophie more after every episode!!


More photos coming from last week to finish! In pics 1 and 2 you can see my Saturday's cooking experiments: I pan-fried a bit some cubed vegetables (zucchini, carrots, mushrooms and celery), just few minutes, so they were still kinda crunchy, with oil, salt, pepper and a spice mix.
Ok, I added a wurstel too ._.
And! I wrapped (or at least I tried to) everything in a piadina. It was very yummy :Q
In the last pic you can see a (poor) artwork I drew on my notebook for a special occasion. It's a 7 <3

Uh, this was a pretty pointless post, wasn't it? Well, it's just to share some nerdy love for my favourites nerdy things <3
Have a good night!

Underwater photography

Wanna know how my day brightened up after countless failed statistics' exercises?? I discovered this:

E. Kalis' underwater photography. Just.. wow!
I browsed a bit through the "projects" session and fell in love with the "Alice in waterland" one. Amazing!

Loved "My fair ladies" and "Rhianne" too (redhead <3 ):

Photo post love

Damn it, I'm in one of those periods again.. Nope, I'm not PMSing or something, it's just one of those moments when I have this need to do and write and talk. It feels great and it happens less than it should. Get out of this room actually feels so good sometimes, it fills me with energy (and sleepiness at the end of the day XD ). But I can feel my brain grind inspiration and produce ideas and suggestions.. yay!
I like this way to explain myself through images, like I did in the last post, so I took some more phone-photos this week..

  • Max and I are thinking about going on vacation in Portugal. We needed some infos and ideas to organise our trip so I fetched this guide at the library. The plan is to fly all the way to Lisbon and then visit the surroundings. My aunt went last summer, she told me a lot of promising stuff, I really am looking forward to it!
  • I go to study at the library ever day now, I can concentrate better this way and, as you can see, my messiness isn't shy XD 
  • Do you see something strange too? WTF moment at the library: as I was reading I noticed everyone was looking up in the air. I thought that they were just thinking or something but when I raised my head, out of reflex, I saw that door.. I blinked and looked away, without paying attention. After a second I looked up again with this face --> o_O realising there was something definitely strange..
  • New notebook converted to agenda! ..and before I knew it I began to use it somehow like a diary.. I don't know why but I just started writing more than necessary. I also took an old box of markers out of the drawer to make everything more colourful. The cover definitely needs to be embellished though..

About cruises and origami

I'll explain myself through images today!
If you've red some post ago you know I've been on a cruise last month. My grandma was afraid to go n her own so she asked me do keep her company. I accepted gladly cause I think it's one of those one-in a life time opportunity.
The trip last a week and I wanted to share the pictures I took of my daily outfit. I actually put a lot of effort in preparing my luggage first and then chose the outfit to wear.. everyone was so elegant.. You'll notice that on the "day 4" I caught a flu and didn't feel very well.. meh D:

Maybe it'll be strange to heard this but.. I didn't like the cruise that much. I mean, it's awesome, the ship is huge and luxurious, the food is to die for and if the weather is sunny (not my case since it was pretty windy all the time) I'm sure you can relax as much as you want, but.. I guess I was more interested in the destinations than the ship comforts.. I was looking forward every port, eager to get down and discover new cities, but the time we'd stay was generally too limited and, actually, you'd not see that much. It just made me want to travel more XD
Surely it's an experience to do, probably it was me who had too high expectations. Anyway I loved almost all the cities we "visited", from Toulon to Valencia, Ibiza, Tunis and Catania.


Now.. wanna know what me and Max did few week ends ago?? Meh it was actually fun even if I kinda sucks at it..


I was doing pretty good with the kitty.. when he decided to try the lizard though... the results were embarrassing!

Ask me anything

I'm back! yay!
First of all I've to apologise to Takara town for being so late with this post. As said I've been on a trip and, surprise, I've caught a flu the following day I came back home =__= Geez, I've never been so sick like this year, damn it!
Anyway! time for answers!!

"Ask me anything" swap:

Swap-bot swap: Ask me anything

"Maybe some of you are familiar with the "Ask me anything" box on Tumblr, if not, it's nothing complicated: you think about an interesting something you'd like to know about your partner and you ask them."

We made a list of 10 questions each and here are my answers (finally!).

Takaratown's questions:

1. What is your favorite dish that you like to cook or prepare yourself. You can pick something sweet or savory. If you never cook or bake, what is your favorite food instead. Include a recipe if you like. 

I love Asian food and I'm especially addicted to ravioli :Q
(There are some recipes around >> here << )

2. What country do you most want to visit next ,and why?

I'd love to visit the USA and travel around China and Japan, but after my little cruise last week I'd like to follow out my country and Europe first. Spain and France have very fascinating places that must be seen.

3. Please choose a cocktail which best represents who you are and please explain why?
Meh I can't think about a proper one but maybe something bubbly that taste bitter-ish could do.
