These are a few of my favorite things – May

I know I shouldn’t begin all my blog post with this but… Really? May’s already over? It’s unbelievable, thank God I made all the days count this month. What about you? Did you enjoy your time?
The time has come again for my monthly favorites, let’s get to it!



I have always felt lucky to be born in Italy, this is a special place that has a lot of good things to offer, from art, to music, fashion, cars… and obviously food. And I think it is safe to say that we gave the world one of the best things ever: PIZZA! Can we agree on this? If you have the chance you should definitely come to Italy and taste a real one, in Napoli, where it originated, it’ll be worth the trip. I could live on pizza, but abusing it isn’t exactly too good for the scale, so this month I hacked my diet and made me pretty often these tasty eggplant pizzas. Trust me they are delicious and fast too, you gust grill the eggplant, put on tomato sauce, mozzarella, a dust of oregano and then put everything in the oven to make the cheese melt. And there you have it, a light and tasty dish!



I got this very inexpensive lipstick in the shade 03- Come Naturally. I didn’t expect much from it when I bought it, but I really came to love this nice dusty rose shade! I think it suits my skin undertone pretty well, it’s fresh, easy and comfortable to wear. Whenever I wear lipstick it’s always red or a dark color, because I normally hate pink on me, but this is just perfect. Plus, the quality and staying power is amazing for a product under 3 Euros!


Is this post getting really, really girly? I got these this morning because I needed a pair of sandals for my cousin’s wedding. I freaking love them! I am a huge sucker for shoes, in any form, and when I find a pair I like I literally worship them! Clearly I don’t mind my high heels and I’m willing to suffer to wear them 😀


Citing from Wikipedia, “Humans of New York (HONY) is a Photoblog and bestselling book featuring street portraits and interviews collected in New York City.”. I’ve been following HONY on Facebook for quite a long time now and I decided to insert it in this post because I think it’s really worth checking out. It’s full of real stories of real and genuine people. The thing that I like the most about it is that it gives speech to both positive and negative “heroes” . The photographer Brandon Santon can capture the most inner truth of the people he photographs and interviews, he provides a little quote from everyone. Some of them are great, healthy and happy, some of them are struggling or have suffered in the past, some of them are regretful, some are proud.
The result is the picture of the many shades, shapes and colors humanity uses to walk through life, simply astonishing. Another thing that I like is the comment people leave under the pictures, it is very rare to read something negative, the HONY followers are a positive and supporting community, I’ve read some of the nicest things on the web, I more than once felt my faith in humanity had been restored when visiting the page.

So this is it, the list is rather short, but I’ve been enjoying some of the less material things this month, so I feel blessed and happy!

See you soon guys,
Take care!
