Rediscovering the blogging world

Last summer I accepted a request that was for me more of a challenge: I made my first Youtube video. It started on request from some girls in a makeup group (Armocromia – Rossetto e Merletto) to do a tutorial on the makeup looks I was posting to help less expert girls to achieve the looks. Well since then Youtube has now become my main focus and I have just realized how I lost contact with blogging ever since.

First experience in the US – An American Tale #1

Ready to finally move into our apartment, I wanted to sit down and tell you of our experience in our first two weeks in the US. As you may have read in previous posts (here, here), in April we got the news that we were moving to Michigan for a great work opportunity for my man. Excitement is the right way to describe our first reaction, which included happiness, fear and sadness. But fast forward to the end of August, we’re standing at the airport in Amsterdam with 90 kg of our lives in the suitcases on our way to Detroit.

Since then I have been hoarding home ware, jewelry and all kind of marble bits and pieces. There are many gorgeous bits and pieces around but price points can be quite hefty so I went on a mission to feed my addiction with affordable pieces that still look nice and don’t break the bank.
