"Plaid shirts are for the Bad, Good and Everything in Between"


Actually plaid shirts are one of the items that I love to wear all year round.. They are great instead of a sweatshirt during warm summer nights and incredibly warm under a jumper in cold winter.
I have many of them and in many patterns but I like this one particularly... 
It's from Abercrombie & Fitch (in my honest opinion they do the best plaid shirts EVER) and has travelled with me around the world, is the perfect item to bring in your luggage.

Serenity.

My boyfriend came back from 3 months spent in Australia surfing. Well FINALLY.
I had to go to Milan after the weekend to attend classes ... so he decided to "pass by" (7 hours driving back and forth) to meet me..
It was a great day even if freezin cold.. -2C° and incredibly humid, you could feel the cold gettin' through your bones! But love and tea warm up the heart.
 For me: Aspesi goose jacket
For him: Carhartt jacket and O'Neill hat. NMD backpack.

Stolen shots of a funny night.

I found this photos in my computer, they are from the closure party of one of my favourite bars ... that night was incredibly fun, all the ingredients for a great party were present: good friends, great location, good drinks and music.
The location was Wind's Bar, the best surfers bar in Lake Garda, the friends were the same as always... perfect combination.

European Winter Warmers: GRAN CANARIA

I went to Gran Canaria to spend some time with my uncle that lives there and to surf everyday in warm water.
I've been pretty lucky, during all my stay the temperature was around 27°C-32°C degrees and the water temp was 22°C more or less, easily surfeable in bikinis. (but it's NOT always like that!!)

 Believe in what you love.. the ocean.

My time in GC was enjoyable and incredibly happy but I was glad to come back home... there was a very special someone waiting for me at Pisa's Airport... sometimes this is all about travels, it's good to go away but sometimes is even better comin' back knowing that someone is waiting for you to arrive.

Welcome to my Place


Saturday I went to Torbole (Lake Garda), one of the places that I love most. There's a Quiksilver/Roxy store there and a friend of mine gave me a very special discount card. It's just for family and close friends of the sales assistants that works there so I was really really really happy to receive it from him.

SISTERHOOD

My sister is the most important person in my world.
We live in different countries and I miss her so much but I know that we are strongly bonded over any distance.


As one of my favourite songs says "I'll be with you even though we're apart..."

Vising a textile fabric....

Thanks to the school I'm attending I had the opportunity to visit a textile fabric near Como Lake (Italy) where textiles are made, printed and dyed.

Textiles for big brands such as Louis Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana and Salvatore Ferragamo are made in this location.

Here are some pictures:

This is where my thoughts go.

Andy you'll always be in our hearts.

Personally I was shocked when I found out that he was dead. I couldnt believe it. I didnt believed it at first, I just did not want to.

He was 32, one of the "Kings" of surfing...When I woke up this morning I could have imagined anything but his death.
We all know well who he was and what he did, I dont need to tell you how good he was at surfing.
He's been found dead in the Dallas airport hotel yesterday (in europe it's today (november 3). He was on his way back home from Porto Rico where he was to compete in the 2010 Rip Curl Pro Search; He withdrew citing an illness he contracted in Portugal.
That illness was probably Dengue Fever, but the cause and manner of death are pending due to completion of lab tests, which could take several weeks.

Our thoughts are with wife Lyndie (7 months pregnant) and Andy's Family.
Irons' family released a statement thanking the surfer's friends and fans and requesting privacy "so their focus can remain on one another during this time of profound loss."

Fall is here!

Temperatures are dropping, it's time to open the closet and take out our jackets... but still we want to enjoy this season of change... is there a better way to do it than with a road trip with our friends?

This is Billabong idea for a fall road trip... Go home and pack leggings, plaid shirts and a leather jacket it's time to leave!
