Hello, friends! I’m getting summer fever! How many of you are ready to graduate from cold weather to summer? I am for sure! Okay, let’s get started! Have you noticed these Bardot/cold-off-the-shoulder shirts/tops/dresses are everywhere? They are definitely getting my attention. The cold-shoulder trend has graced us with its presence for spring 2017, and I couldn’t be any happier.

Jessica Alba, is one of my favorite fashion icons. She always looks so stylish and put together. Her hair and makeup is always perfection. She also follows me on Twitter! =)

Amal Clooney, always manages to look perfectly polished for every occasion.

Heidi Klum, looks amazing with her off-the-shoulder crop top. I just love her toned arms!

One more picture of our lovely Duchess of Cambridge. It seems that Kate is truly living in a modern day fairy tale.

I noticed many of celebrities that I follow are wearing the off shoulders trend! I have also seen them on fashion magazines and social media. They have just flooded the market in the past few months.
I will bring a few with me, in different colors and styles, to my next trip to Italy this summer.

Now, if you don’t like the way your shoulders look, don’t immediately shoot down the idea. This is a trend anyone can wear whatever your age or size. I always revamp my wardrobe, makeup, hair. Life would be boring without changes.

On your next shopping trip, bring an honest friend with you, and ask her/him for their opinion.
So let’s left make time for ourselves and schedule *me* time at the gym. Add a few more weights and push-ups to your workout routine.   Together, let’s get those shoulders out and ready for summer. We can do it, we still have a few months left. I will post below some of my favorites! Now, cheers to a very stylish new year. XO

This has been a busy year with the presidential elections in the US. A new president will be sworn in, and I will need to get used to not seeing President Obama anymore. I hope our new president can re-unite America, because it seems this country is divided right now.

My blog looks like an obituary today. As 2016 comes to an end, let us reflect on how shocking and eventful of a year this was. We lost a lot of public figures. Unfortunately, I could not list them all, but I mentioned the ones who had the biggest impact on me while I was growing up.

The losses started at the beginning of the year with David Bowie, and continued on all the way to the lovely Carrie Fisher, George Michael, and Debbie Reynolds.

As for 2017, I am very optimistic. I really hope things in the US improve, but I also hope that the terrible situation in Syria gets better. I hope this new year can bring all of us joy and happiness.

I will leave you with a few pictures of some of the celebrities and great people we lost this year. I felt it was important to pay this tribute to them.

I wish you guys a wonderful year. After each hardship we endure, we grow stronger. So, on that note, have a happy new year!

As for my Juve, I want it all. I want the scudetto, the Coppa Italia, the Champions League, and I want our portiere to play for another 2 years. Happy New year! Xx

Cari amiche/amici, siamo arrivati alla conclusione del 2016. Fiu, questo è stato un anno agrodolce, difficile e complicato. Quello che ci apprestiamo a lasciare alle spalle, è di certo un anno da non dimenticare, non solo per gli Stati Uniti, ma per l’intera terra.

Non parlando poi della serie di lutti che hanno colpito il mondo dello spettacolo, e anche quello della cultura mondiale nel 2016. Ci hanno lasciato tanti miti, grandissimi artisti che con la loro esistenza, e talento, hanno reso il mondo un posto migliore e più interessante. Il mio blog, oggi mi sembra un cimitero.

Ho deciso, e non potevo farne a meno, di condividere alcune foto di tutte le stelle comete che hanno lasciato la terra. Anche se questo è stato un anno abbastanza difficile, ho l’attitudine a vedere il futuro con speranza, e con un grande ottimismo. Vi abbraccio a tutti! Buon anno!🎉🎉🎉 Come sempre, Forza Juve! 💕⚪⚫


These items are what I have on my wish list for 2017. As you have noticed, some of these items, like painted, Gucci cropped-denim pants, were popular in the 90’s. Ah! History tends to repeat itself. Whether you like it or not, 90’s fashion is making a comeback. I do miss the colorful pants and necklaces.

Monica and Rachael from “Friends” were my fashion icons at that time. Actually, Jennifer Aniston still is. Everyone, including myself, wanted to be them and dress like them. Like many of you, I was a huge fan. Those girls were just as stylish off the screen as they were on. Who is ever going to forget Jennifer Aniston’s famous haircut? I had highlights like hers for many years.

That show taught everyone a thing or two about fashion. A big thumbs-up goes out to the stylist on the show. He was brilliant! I hope to see a reunion someday!


I’m loving my new dress! I wanted to be comfortable while running errands/lunch date with hubby! So, I decided to chic up and wear my new, short-sleeve dress with a light sweater and boots. Cold weather approved combo. Xx



Counting down the days! In South Texas, we had a white Christmas back in 2004. I can never forget that day! In many places around the country it is already cold and snowing. Here at home, it has been cold on and off. Let’s be ready, because a cold front is heading in our way, just in time for Christmas.

That’s why I like to dress in layers. I always opt for a short sleeve shirt under a heavy coat. After all, who wants to go out shopping or to a Christmas party and feel super hot because of heavy clothing? If you are planning spend a significant amount of time outdoors, then skip the layers, and stay warm. Enjoy the rest of the day.;)
