MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

Today is the last day of March, lucily sun and temperature are warm like spring would must to be... I had time to work, to relax, hang out with friends, have sunbathing and I did shopping... In the past week I repaired a pair of blue jeans, that means I don't need to buy a new pair, I bought a new bra and a new black shirt that work perfectly with clothes I already have inside my closet...plus I prepared shopping bag with clothes for charity!!!
I ate Chinese but honestly my stomach isn't been so good during night, maybe is because I eat more healty or that night I was more nervous and irritated, usually my stomach send me signals like those when I am more stressed than usual...
I went out with friends, worked on saturday night (side hustle is working), relax yesterday and gifted myself with a delicious ice-cream (dark chocolate and coconut are my favourite favors)... in this week I must to fix an appointment with accountant and talk about some things, plus is almost arrived time…

SUGGESTION FOR A GOOD JOB INTERVIEW

Most people with crisis lost their job, most tried to enter into the market of work but most of youths don't know how to do a good job interview and it is bad cause firs meeting and first impression is like a business card, more you're attractive (and I am not talking about image, at least not only) you must to study a little bit to be prepared abut the position, the company-industry-society where you would like to work.
I was reading last issue of Cosmopolitan magazine and there was a very interesting article about to have a job interview, in the article the company was Google, but every single suggestion can be used for every kind of job, position and industry-company!!!


not be prejudiced -  Maybe some companies may seem light years away, but in reality can provide you with many opportunities, the interview may be in English or Italian, always better to inquire first.Don't be limited-Be open to all opportunitiesthat you show up, you are applying for a place and then the em…

THINKING ABOUT GIFT FOR A NEWBORN AND MUM

Yesterday I was walking in the centre waiting the 6 pm to go inside shop that repaired my jeans, I drunk a coffe watching people that were walking, doing shopping and chatting...and probably you noticed how can be silly some kind of conversations...
However yesterday apart take back my jeans I was looking for a nice gift for my pregnant friend, one for the baby and one for the mum:P, plus on the last issue of Elle kids i felt totally in love for a lot of mini clothes, they're so cute tha I was thinking about adult size of one of them....


But for the moment I only took mental notes about shops, colours, models, honestly I am waiting her born so I will be sure to buy something that is nice and useful...In two shops I was going into several doubts because on tag there was wrote 6 months but for me was so small that could be perfect for a newborn, however I asked to my mum to go and help me with size, she had 2 son (me and brother), she has more knowledge in this field (and many others)…

POSITIVE & NEGATIVE FRIENDS

...Have you ever noticed that in the period you attend more often negative person, you started to see everything into bad and negative way? Stopped or put into a box your projects-dream-desires only because someone said you that wasn't impossible achieve them?
Hav you noticed that if you are surrounded by positive and supportive people you are more active and smiling...
I must to admit I have friends that are into first description andI call them half-completely empty glass type and I limit my number of meeting with them, because I noticed their bad influence pn my soul while I prefer keep contact daily with supportive friend that are good because also if NOW I am the half full glass type, some days I wake up nervous and they help me to find something really positive!!!
First thing I learn in the years is that before to stay well with friends and also in a couple, you need to have a great and honest relationship with yourself so first of all LOVE YOURSELF, be your fan number One and…

SPRING WINDOW SHOPPING

Looking on the calendar Spring is officially arrived, also if temperature bacame a little bit colder and light trench is been changed with a more warm coat... However with spring there is a lovely return of colours and blossom...longer journeys permit to do more things and usually I am able to end all list of daily things I must to do. 
Looking inside shops is nice see how fashion changes, there are return from past but if you are on a budget you need to invest in some statement and classic pieces that you can mix with clothes and accessory you already have...being on a budget help and teach you to plan a budget and follow it!!!
However also if you're on a budget you can also do "only" window shopping and take mental notes of things you'd like to have, then you can choose one and save for it!!! little reward as short term goal achieved!!!
MY cousin is gettin married in the month of June and I am not going to buy a new dress for the occasion, cause I already have elegant…

LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

In this society seems that to be really happy you need to have only expensive things, branded clothes, big villas big bank accounts...well honestly I am completely disagree because my opinion is : MONEY CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS...
I'm not rich and also if I'd like to have a higher bank balance, but only to be quiet with unexpected bills, I find daily little simple and most of times free things that made me really happy...
For example since saturday sky and temperature changed this morning for a while there is been a warm sun and I am been really happy about sun on my face.
I needed to go into an office to do some burocracy documents and I am been really gentle with lady in front of me similin, saying hello, thanks good bye and have a nice day, simple education rules but this lady is been really really happy about it!
Then on light I accepted tickets for a circus (also if I don't like a lot it) because they're working and I respect the fact that they spend several hours up d…

Temperature is been good and sky was clear and sunny-AMAZING COMBO- unluckily from yesterday sky became grey and temperature colder, but being in March maybe temperature was a little bit to high for the period, however I met my friends for real...

I must to confess that every time I walk from my apartment to commercial center I walk in front of lovely townhouses with little but lovely gardens and I am really envny about it, because I think about more of the garden's owner stay inside while with spring, longer and sunny and warmer journeys I'd spent several hours outside...plus reading last issue of Good housekeeping Uk there waas a very interesting article about 10 minutes per day to have an amazing garden...well about it I'd must to work hard I don't have green thumb, mine is more black-.-
I want to bike more often is possible, also if newspapers said  that temperature and sky will change turning colder and grey, hopefully It will be only for few days I want the lovely sun of the spring....
However I love cooking, together with writing and reading is my best method to keep the calm, and I found a very selection of delicious receipes and not so expensive, so if you love to host dinner but you need to stay on a bud…

CHANGIN IS IN THE AIR....

In this past week and this just began something seem is changing, my work in the cafe became more busy and infact in the month of April I'll be almost always working and not only during week ends... Plus I said after a entire year of home working honestly I missed a lot of things from real office and I am trying to find a way to ha ve a balance between office and home...

However you'll notice -if you're a reader- that I'll write less post than usual because with this longer and war journeys I am not going to stay at home more is necessary...

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

Basically you decide to have a budget when you focus a real and important financial goal to achieve, first thing is that you try to SAVE more is possible as soon as possible...It seems very hard and compllicated at the beginning and sometimes it is hard because you can receive unexpected and expensive bill (= that month your save is 0).

The second step is to increase your income (side hustle) and yes you could use your passion ( for example my friends Roby and Stephanie create and sell their products), you can say to your friends and/or collegues with kids that you're looking for baby sitter work in the week end and is sure that you'll have at least 2 works immediately...
Personally I choose to came back into my first real job's place: the cafe into gym-sport's palace, is true I have almost all week end busy with work but I am focused about my financial and very very important goal: save for a deposit home, I can also say that I am sure about who I can call TRUE FRIEND b…

POSITIVE THOUGHTS FOR WEEK END

Yesterday is been a very sunny day so I wrote and studied a lot in the morning, watched an episode of buying & selling (I can spend hours watchin this tv show) and then I decided to do a long walk from my home to new section that is been built from not so many time... Well I discovered veru nice houses that are hidden behind trees distance isn't so much and you can walk and arrive in another quarters in 15 minutes circa.... MY friend Dom went later and we walked again doing the same trial I've done before... 
Walking is a great way to do exercise for free, and during walking you have the opportunity to discover new interesting place, I like do tourist in my hometown because there are always side and places that you don't know... 
Now for the incoming week I'm going to use my bike, hoping that weather will be sunny as this week, I don't kno wwhy but with Spring and sun I love outdoor activities and I became more active!!!
Finances: basically I am been good I didn&#…

DETOX DIET

This week isn't began so well, I have an inflammation of the gingiva on right side my mouth and this means a lot of pain for the last two days, this morning (wed) pain there still is but it is more lighter than monday, hopefully it will pass for the week end and probbly inthe next week I'd need to visit a dentist:( I hate doctors or better I don't hate them but I prefer to don't attend a lot this kind of people...I don't know why but they have almost always bad news!!!
However I used this week also to start a sort of detox diet and for the moment is going well, I have a nice breakfast usually with coffee, 4 light cookies and milk and in the middle of morning and afternoon I have a fruit, for dinner protein and veggies and for lunch I use : or Adding always a fruit and ton of water.
This Pesoforma helps you to lose weight but is true that you need to do some activity like daily walking, biking, because if you eat only this product and you keep firm on your couch isn'…

DAY-CATION IDEAS ON A BUDGET

I love traveling, but I am always on a budget and having also a work in the week end to achieve my financial goals, so in 2013 I did a staycation and this year could be the same, but talking with some friends-that are really busya lso during summer with work- we decided to do sometimes a day trip...
This permits you to visit new places and have a little mini escape and have an entire day of relax or fun, depends of what you and you're friend are looking for... for example from my hometown is possible to go in several places (sea,lakes, mountains, etc. etc.)...
ME and my friend Dom are trying from a month to go into the ice's palace to have an afternoon of ice-skating, we'll try again this sunday (luckily this week end I will work only on saturday), then we talked about other places when temperatures will be more hot, basically when real summer will arrives.

SPEEDY PIZZA

When I have really few time to cook I choose to do something really fast and really good, usually I use some of this ideas as appetize when I host a dinner...
Are you craving for a pizza but you have only few minutes? cut some slices of bread put some tomato sauce, mozzarella chesse and a pinch of salt and put everything in the over for at max 8 minutes, a speedy pizza completely delicious, if you have more time put also some sardines and cook a little bit more... this is so simple that everyone is able to do!!!
What you need is : bread, tomato sauce, olive oil, mozzarella cheese -also if to be honest a time that I was very hungry i cutted cheese put on the bread an put inthe micriwave for 1.5 minutes, added some salt and delicious bites-but I love every kind of cheese:P
Delicious, complete, time saver and also savvy ( c'mon tomato, olive oil, bread, salt there are always into a kitchen aren0t you agree?)

HOLIDAY AND IDEAL HAND BAGGAGE

The other day I was talking with a friend of mine about holidays, last year I had a staycation, probably this year could be the same or I can have little mini breaks from my hometown, so we talked about ideal place to visit and in my personal list in the first place there is always Greece, doing a lot of researches I discovered some interesting and not so touristic place with really affordable prices....
But at the same time I already missed my idea to spend a week end in Cambridge and why' becasue I work every single week end till the end of June...but last week my friend Said that she is going to stay there longer, so we started to talka bout ideal holidays again, yeo for the moment we plan only in our mind...
