Several times I find myself searching for a certain pair of earrings, a ring or a bracelet among all my jewelry, waisting a lot of time and leaving all messy. Sometimes I find things I did not even remember to have. Isn't this strange?!
This is why recently I started browsing jewelry boxes... And here are some of my favourite items.
As already mentioned here, last saturday I hosted a brunch for my 30th birthday. I welcomed my closest friends at my place and shared the best meal of the day. What can I say? It was really fun and everyone enjoyed the moment, I am very happy we celebrated in this way.
Planning a brunch with friends is easy, fun and provides a great opportunity to slow down and enjoy the moment with the people you love. Here are some tips I would like to share about a brunch planning:
Choose date and time
Invite friends or family members with a phone call
Make a list of the dishes and beverages you will offer and start shop all the things you need
Clean your house in advance
Think about decorations and choose a color theme
Prepare as much as possible ahead of time, so you can prepare yourself without hurry in the morning
I am a huge fan of every dish that includes pumpkin (pumpkin risotto is one of these), especially in this period, at the beginning of fall and of all the comfortable traditions that this season brings. This time I used pumpkin to prepare an easy sweet treat that really surprised me with its flavour!
If you want to taste them during Halloween celebration and give them a funny look, you just have to add some little DIY ghost on the top of them using some toothpicks, the little ones will surely enjoy!
Sono una grande fan di ogni piatto fatto con la zucca (il risotto con la zucca è uno di questi), specialmente in questo periodo, all'inizio dell'autunno e di tutte le tradizioni che la stagione porta. Questa volta ho usato la zucca per preparare un dolcetto facile che mi ha veramente sorpresa con il suo sapore!
Se volete assaggiare questi muffin durante la festa di Halloween e dare loro un'aspetto divertente, non dovete far altro che aggiungere dei piccoli fantasmini in carta applicati su uno stuzzicadente, i più piccoli apprezzeranno sicuramente!
This year I want to celebrate my birthday with my closest friends in a different way, so lately I started planning a rich breakfast/brunch at my place. I want to share with my girls a moment of relax, pure indulgence and fun!
Here you will find images that are really helping me with planning the event!
What do you think? Have you ever celebrated at the time of breakfast or brunch?
Finally bought this book at Anthropologie during our last travel to NYC, I love it!
I really love fall sundays like today, the weather is mild and you still have the chance to enjoy the sunlight outside before the boring rainy season starts... Time to relax, think about new ideas and enjoy friends company.

Yes, in two weeks I will be turning 30 years old. How do I feel about it? I feel pretty good, happy. Many things happened and changed in my life, but now I feel like I am accomplishing all the things I ever wanted: have a great boyfriend, live in our own personally styled apartment, doing an interesting job. I feel much happier and confident in my thirties than I did in my twenties, so I imagine it can only get better from here and that life can offer me other gorgeous things!
If you are interested in discovering what you should have and should know at the time of 30, do not miss this complete list published by Glamour magazine... I really agree with everything, but mostly with points 12 of should have and 9 of should know :)
At this point, I need to get my "sweet thirty" party planned... Any suggestion?
How do you feel in your thirties? How did you celebrate this moment? I am curious to know!
