Another exam gone for the best after NYE celebrations, I deserved the sales in the city center! Everybody who’s reading, keep this in mind: there are the same shops than in Milan, except that the atmosphere is definitely much more beautiful. Renaissance in the air, last trends in the showcases. Rome is way too chaotic and dispersed. The correspondent of Milan’s via Montenapoleone e via della Spiga in Florence are via Tornabuoni and via Calzaiuoli (Hermes, Prada, Ferragamo, Tiffany, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Fendi….). Via Roma, the highlights of trends, with Miu Miu, Michael Kors soon opening, Luisaviaroma (it contains every luxury label that I have not quoted already,eg Valentino, YSL, Dsquared). Rinascente is the luxury mall (like Harrods and Lafayette, to say the equivalents). Then there’s a galaxy surrounding that: great leather’s shops, low cost labels, vintage… Not to buy anything, with sales, impossible! I had the third thunderbolt for a pair of shoes in less than a month, then two funny Zara t-shirts (I kinda of collect stamped and funny ones, many with irreverent phrases I’ll have to post soon). In my teenage era I couldn’t miss Brandy&Melville, even if it’s located in via Cavour (a few minutes walking from Duomo, but now there’s a littler one in the gold cradle). Check it at http://www.brandymelvilleusa.com
I suggest to check the sales on Zara’s website as I was told because I couldn’t find a lovely pair of shorts I hesitated to buy in the one in Monaco http://www.zarahome.com .
What about jewels? I didn’t receive gold and diamonds today, but I’d like my man having the taste to get a look into the many little shops placed in Ponte Vecchio… The small tipic showcases shine with all kinds
of cuts and antiquities.
And this is me allegedly of fours tons of culture showed and happy for the new entries in my wardrobe, shiny nails (http://www.pupa.it/ENG/) and cosmopolitan.
This exam was mostly about death and its pornography, how it’s hidden and feared in the contemporary society; the sense of shame we feel when talking about it (impoliteness).
I’ve always been intrigued with this issue and I love the most dramatic stories. I like dying every time my heroes do, in order to remember them, feel detached because I am in this earth safe and sound, and feel more alive in their memories too.
A 5km walk from the university to the center, great lunch, shopping…. What more? For every success we need to celebrate, if you feel lucky don’t put an end to this, just keep on enjoying. Until the work calls you back, but this will happen in a future that is never stable. Ah, and love your work. Or stay unemployed. We live only once (in this corpse). Live the day because living is the best opportunity we get from nature to make this world shine with positive energy and improve it. Day by day, moment by moment. Like a friend told me this weekend about my exam on medias: “ils doivent aller se faire foutre, ils disent que tout va mal lorsque la vie est tellement belle!”.
No constraints, let’s spend and make the politician be grey and boring! Give and you’ll receive back… Kinda of a law.
All those glitters that ain’t gold but they may look like diamonds and worth their value 😉
