These are a few of my favorite things – July

Hello everyone! So this is it, july is almost over and I’m pretty excited. It’s been a very, very busy month and the extremely high temperatures didn’t make it any lighter, but I can’t say I’m not embarassingly happy right now. Why you ask? Let me tell ya…


I know I haven’t been there yet, but I think I can’t go wrong if I nominate in advance going to Wacken Open Air at the top of the favorites of the month, can I? I’m so excited I can’t wait to leave and live this incredible experience with my beloved bards! We will play on the Headbangers Stage on July 31st at 11.55 am. Will you be there? I hope to see many of you!


My studies have been a huge and uncomfortable part of my life for the last 10, yes, 10 years. Pursuing my passion while studying to become an building engineer and architect hasn’t exactly always been a piece of cake, but now I can proudly say that I have finally finished all my exams! I am so relived, I smell freedom, all I have to do now is to finish my thesis and then I’ll be able to graduate, once and for all. Yay!


I’ve been meaning to get a new camera for a while, and I finally found an interesting one. The Samsung NX Mini is what I was looking for, a small camera with a large flip up touch sceen, a wide angled lens and wifi connection. I got it in the mint color and it looks really nice, I’m sure i twill be a great companion during my travels, I might even be vlogging now! I haven’t tested it properly yet so I can’t give you insights on the image and video quality but I’ve read nice revews. We’ll soon see how we like it!


My hair tends to get dry so I like to use an oil to give it some hydration. I normally use macadamia nut oil, but it is very thick and can look heavy so I wanted to try something different. This is a radiace treatment with oil of maracuja, brazil nut and cupuaçu extracts. I like this product a lot, it’s very lightweight and it smells heavenly! You only need coulpe of pumps on towel-dried hair and then you can go ahead with the styling. Perfect shiny hair that smells amazing, done!


This one’s actually my mom’s, I borrow it from time to time. I can’t deal with hair, I use good shampoos, masks and oils, but other than blow drying it or using a straightener I can’t do much with it. I’ve always loved some nice curls and last time I went to the hairdresser I got obsessed with waves. Babyliss’ Secret Curl is the perfect tool for dummies like me, it’s even easier than using a curling iron, you just give it a chunk of hair and it does all the work!


I was so happy to partecipate in the recording of the backing vocals for Trick or Treat’s “Rabbits Hill pt. 2”, I had fun with Alle Damna and Simone. The tracks are the bomb, I can’t wait to hear the record!


I’m sure lots of you have already seen this because it went viral, but I have to post it anyway, I’ve watched it a thousand times and I almost cried every single time. How I Became The Bomb wrote a song about this meeting between two lovers, artist Marina Abramovic and her former lover Ulay, and then created a clip with the images of the actual meeting. I love it, it’s deep, personal, powerful and violently intimate, in my opinion the song perfectly captures and frames the moment. I love their eyes.
