Sometimes, when I feel annoyed with people and things, I express my frustration by writing.  Don’t get me wrong, I also write when I’m happy, but, when I’m frustrated, writing just takes me to another dimension, a less annoying one. It sweeps me away to a quiet place where I can recharge and feel whole again.

Today, my heart was broken. I’m not expecting everyone to understand how I feel, but if you are a soccer fan, you can certainly understand the magnitude of my sadness today.  For those of you whom learned to love and worship soccer from a very early age, you can understand the sadness and the disappointment of a loss.

After Juventus defeated Barcelona twice, some of us, including myself, got a bit overconfident. We felt our team could easily win against Real Madrid and claim the Champions League cup.

As you may have guessed, this was not the case. Ugh!

Unfortunately, that’s life and sports. While it sometimes feels wrong to be in a state of mourning over sports, especially a match wherein no one was injured and everyone returned safely back to their families; I  think it is a good thing to allow yourself to really process your emotions. If I did not feel bad when Juve loses, I would not feel good when they win. If that was the case, what would be the point of watching sports? That emotional attachment one develops with a team is what makes this pastime so exhilarating.

Time to start again.

Take care everyone

Ce ne andiamo a Cardiff! Ce ne andiamo a Cardiff! 

The song goes on and on. This is a song that we Juventini/bianconeri are singing as the day of our game approaches. Saturday, my beloved Juventus will go face-to-face with Real Madrid in the Champions League Final.
Our team has improved a lot. Our great coach, Mr. Allegri, has done a fabulous job with this team. We just won our six consecutive scudetto, and now, if we win our game on Saturday, we will make history. Our goalkeeper, Gigi Buffon, made it to the Champions League Final in 2003 and 2015, but has never won. At 39 years old, Giogio’ keeps on going strong. This could be his last chance at winning.
Last year, Real Madrid won the Champions League Final. Cristiano Ronaldo is on fire this year, as well. It is going to be a huge/stressful game. I need to do my best to stay calm. A workout prior to the game will be a must.
However, I am confident in my team. We beat Barca! So, we know we can also beat Real Madrid.
Fino alla fine, ragazzi!

Hello, my friends!

This warm weather and beautiful sunshine makes me happy.  I hope all of you are having a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. Have you noticed my blog’s new look? Do you like it? I personally love how everything has its own place/category. It looks very professional and organized. My webmaster, Patrick, did a super job, I guess I will keep him. 😉   It was time to change. I was getting unhappy with the way it was looking. To me, it was just a big mess. Let me know if you like this new format.

So, today I’m sharing a few of my favorite items that I received last week.  It is great shopping online. I’m in love with those gladiator sandals. You can wear them with a dress, or with your favorite jeans or jeans skirt. They are totally versatile. It takes some planning to look glam, but it is worth it.  For my upcoming trip to Italy this summer, I’m already pre-staging what to bring and what to wear. That will save me some time later.

 

I have also been using this Jessica Alba’s Hydration Replenishing Mist, and it has become a major part of my morning routine. I use it after cleansing, before applying the moisturizer and serum.  I also like to spray throughout the day, to get that instant hydration. I’m already in love with this product!  Stay happy and zen!
