Hey! Hello, my friends!

It has been awhile since my last post. I have been taking a little time for myself to unplug and relax. I’m also enjoying this gorgeous spring weather. This year, it seems like the cold weather is trying to hang on forever. Help!

Here is the link if you  like my shirt     

 

 

 

On this post, I’m going to share some of the latest items that I bought.
While relaxing and enjoying Spring Break, I took the opportunity to do some shopping. I have been wanting to shop for  some new dressy casual tops/ handbag/shoes for quite some time. It is not always easy to do so. It takes time and some planning, but it is worth it.


I think all of us need to invest in a handbag that makes a statement. You walk in your closet, and there they are! Always lined up and looking all pretty. Whether it is a shoulder bag or a cross-body, depending on the day and the occasion, they are still one of the most practical item in our closets. Today, I’m sharing beautiful and perfect arm candy.

My statement bag, Zara, has arrived. Now I can add it to the rest of my collection.

A statement bag can transform an entire outfit. A new handbag, that matches your shoes and outfits, shows style and sophistication. It makes you feel ready to step on the runway. In my opinion, it is the first thing that people notice.

Investing in a good quality bag is totally worth it. Handbags are one of our many accessories that we value and use often. We need to make sure they go with every outfit we own. When we have the pleasure of finding the perfect one, it can give us a great feeling of satisfaction. It will instantly make an effortless outfit stand out and look glam.

As I was shopping for my new bag, I came across this adorable wallet. How many of us get attached to our old wallet, and try to come up with excuses not to get one?! It almost happened to me. I was attached to my old wallet simply because it was a gift from my husband, Patrick. I kept on putting off buying a new one.

As many of you already know, I’m a runner. Here are my favorite running shoes I bought just over the weekend!  What are some of your favorite running shoes?

Okay, my friends. There is a lot on my to-do list today. My new article should be out in a few weeks on Thrive. I will post a link.

Hello, ladies! Summer is ending! Get out there, get some sunshine, and enjoy the beautiful weather.

As you noticed from my pictures, I’m sporting a new, shorter look. It is always exciting when Meghan works her magic on my hair. We chopped a few inches off, because lately my hair has not been in the best condition. While I was in Italy this past summer, I went to see my sister’s hairdresser, and it was not a positive experience. Even though we had an appointment, I ended up waiting for a long time with chemicals in my hair. I got a lot of dead ends as a result. Today, Meghan could remove most of them.

Anyway, this past weekend, my husband Patrick and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Our actual anniversary was on Friday, September 15, but we are still celebrating. It always feels like I just married him last year.

In the meantime, the UPS guy has been busy, because I received my first present last week. My hubby bought me a new laptop. It is super light, and I love it. It is as light as an iPad! Can you believe that? It is perfect for me, because my other laptop was quite heavy, and the weight was causing some knee pain. My second present was some Giorgio Armani foundation. I will share a review with all of you. Until then, be kind to one another. xoxo

 

 

I just made this delicious Tapioca pudding!

 

Hi Ladies! My latest article that I wrote for Thrive Global was published last week. I should be dancing and feeling happy for that accomplishment. Instead, I feel lots of sadness for those who have lost their homes to Hurricane Harvey.
A few days ago, President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Corpus Christi to be briefed on the relief effort by local and state officials. According to www.nytimes.com,“The National Guard has conducted 8,500 rescues since the storm began, Mr. Abbott said, and the police and firefighters in the Houston area have done a similar number. About 24,000 National Guard troops will soon be deployed for disaster recovery in Texas.” Thousands of people are still awaiting rescue.
It is just heartbreaking to watch the news. Yesterday, I was watching CNN, and they were interviewing this gentleman who was feeling emotional because he was separated from his family during their rescue.
As time goes by, Harvey continues to cause problems. Wednesday morning, the storm made landfall again, dumping 6-10 inches of rain in Louisiana. Houston, and all the cities affected by the Hurricane, need our prayers.
On a different note, I need a moment of silence! Why? Italy lost against Spain last Saturday. No, we are not out of the World Cup yet, but we do need to start winning games so we can qualify. I do miss our old coach, Antonio Conte. Btw, where was Chiello?
On a happy note, I’m sharing a few pictures of Claudio. Last week, he had his 12-week checkup. He is such a bundle of joy. He already loves to pose for the camera.

I’m using a new foundation from Clinique. It has a natural looking coverage! It does exactly what Clinique claims it would do. I’m super happy with this foundation so far; and I can see myself using it for a long time. And yes, I would highly recommend this product. 

Take care everyone.
Xo,
Nunzia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many of you had a joyful and relaxing weekend? Right now, I am enjoying these hot, sizzling, Texas summer days. Who on this earth does not love summer? I don’t even want to think about those lazy, cold, gray winter days. Yes, I know, the fall and winter seasons bring us some awesome holidays, but my mind is made up. I’m not ready to give up my summer!
During the hot months, my energy level is high. I feel happy and alive. I’m also enjoying the extra dosage of vitamin D. Now that I’m just about over my jet lag, I’m slowly getting back into my regular workout routine. I started my weekend with a great run on Saturday. Then, I went to see my beautiful hairdresser.
As I mentioned earlier, I got my hair done just two weeks ago in Italy at Mariano Balato, my sister’s hairdresser. They did an excellent job. However, my hair was looking like it belonged to a Barbie doll. They really made me super blonde, and it was not looking very flattering with my dark complexion.
I noticed it is a trend for the ladies in Italy to have blonde hair with dark roots. I knew that I was going to be a project for my hairdresser, Meghan. I’m now blonde-free, and I feel great.
I hope everyone has a great Monday/week. Keep on smiling, and don’t forget to stay Zen in this crazy world. XOXO
