THE QUANG SHANG OPERA BY ERICH VON NEFF

I've read this book this week, this is one of the Erich von Neff's publications, I liked poems but this romance is really really interesting...

What would you say about a marriage where you don't know your husband and you need to move in other country?
What if your new husband is rude and want to have so much money that ask to his wife to "work" as massage girl?...yes is that kind of massageWhat if the lovely girl fall in love for a client and the client do the same?
There are some chapters where you will say several times "what the hell?"...let me say maybe at the beginning you will read slow but after chapter 28 you will want to know how story ends...
Could you accept it? Could you ask to kill someone? Why money seems so important for everyone? What would you do for your freedom?
In this book you will find a lot of emotion, you'll hate Anne, then you'll vote and hope for some changes...until something unexpected happens
final is not that kind of fin…

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY

Today is Thanksgiving day and also if it isn't an italian festivity I really like this day where you say THANKS for several things!
Honestly I am thankful for:

FAMILY AND FRIENDS: our family had a not so good 2013 that ended well, I must to say a bigh thanks to friends that stay near me in every moment also when I was quiet nasty, true friends stay always on your side ans say you if you're mistaking. This is why I love to have at least one day each week dedicate to them!!!WORK there is big crisiis moment so also if I need to handling 3 jobs I am really thankful to have them because they permit me to pay bills, help family if is necessary and permit me to save to achieve my financial goalsTRAVELING: Ok I did my frist holiday since august 2012 during Halloween's week end but now I am planning to travel more often, this saturday I will be in Rome spending quality time with my friend Noemi and I am already planning other little mini holidays during all over the year OTHER BLOGS …

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been a looong week of work, baby sitting till friday and work in the cafe during the entire week end butI had a couple of afternoons free that I used for shopping with mum and with my friend Samantha... I am so happy when I can spend time with person that are important for me, also if time is not so much is really quality time spent together...
This morning I woke up and watching out the window I saw an ugly dark grey sky, that now is disappered and is arrived the lovely sun, the warm of it is amazing on my skin!... this morning I've bought a book for works to do during this cold journey with lovely reverend's daughter, a book that I'm going to read and review during this week.... I think that if I hadn't abudget probably I'll must to declare bankruptcy for books and H&M shop into commercial center near home.,.
This week I talked via chat with some friends and fixed some real meetings, one this evening and one in Rome with my friend Noemi so I w…

MY SHOPPING CONFESSIONS

Honestly I am became quiet good on: resist to shopping temptation, apart when I really need something...well I have a frugal wardrobe, I tend to use same kind of dress most often like a uniform but ...on books side I am not so good infact also if I said that I'd buy books only in the end of year, during one of my grocery shopping into commercial center near home I've found and BOUGHT 2 books-but on my side I can say that I am not been able to resist about two books that could be explain male brains-maybe later they're been a little bit more understandable:P

Every week I have a coffe-appointment with my friend and ex collegue Samantha- we usually meet in fron of cafe talk in front of good cup of coffee-we are both coffee lovers-and then we go into H&M shop, usually I watch and don't buy, taking mental notes...but today I've bought a lovely red dress and I also have a good excuse...On 8th of December there will be the Baptism of my unofficial nephew Sophia (she is…

BE SAVVY AT GROCERY STORE

In my personal opinio have a cler list for grocery shopping is must that everyone would must to have...it is important as meal weekly planning...
First of all after you decide what you're going to eat for the entire week, open your kitchen cabinets and put in the list only things that you need to buy because they're not already into your cabinets...FOLLOW STRICTLY THE LIST YOU'VE WROTE!
If you are living alone with meal planning you don't fall into grocery store traps overbuying and then you need to put lot of food into trash bin...if you are a couple/family is fun and interesting decide menu all together
Before to hang out from your home, look into web if you can find some coupns to use to reduce your grocery's bill-they're great and useful used on things you buy and use but please don't became extreme couponer or the risk is to overspend on it-
What is better to buy in bulk? Well in my personal opinion some things that are essential and no perishables items i…

HANDMADE GiFTS IDEAS ON A BUDGET

Let me say that during this week I am been glad for several things, most are silly atupid but at same times make me really really happy, Also if some moments of our life could be extremely hard is always think about "half-full glass", see at least one thing every day that make you smile...this is part of my daily happiness project. Who says that to be happy and have a rich life you need to have ton of money?
however this is the moment where I tend to look on magazines, webs, tv, market  ideas for Xmas gifts...as I wrote I would like to have complete Xmas gift mission for the end of the month, because prices became more higher and in shos there is a mass of people...so I choose to do handmade gifts, choosing local and some a couple of years I buy directly from my friend and collegue Roberta...amazing handmade objects and this year I am seriously in CRISIS but not about finances...but about what I could buy I need to have more time luckily I still have 10 days till end of the m…

VIAREGGIO

I love travel and reading, usually I tend to take a magazine or a book during my trips, but last mini holiday I had in Viareggio I took only ....my curiosity...yep I am a curius monkey:P
I loved every single instant spent in this lovely city, I can admit that I would live here...is not so bigger than my hometown and isn't chaotic as Rome, I love Rome because I have a lot of friends that study-live-work here but honestly a part a week end I cannot live in Rome is too much...
However turning back to Viareggio, I didn't spent a lot, there is a friend of mine that is living alone and having a extra room and rent it, so price is more affordable than an hotel (and believe me when I say that during halloween time with Lucca Comics event is almost impossible find something affordable), so he is been so gentle to offers his house to us
... on our arrive we went all together in a pizza that is called "Da gennaro", where we opted for 1 meter pizza with 3 favour...absolutely delici…

EGYPT (my genuine envy)

Ok in this exactly moment a person that I know is pending an entire week in Egypt, he did another holiday in Lithuania and during summer he visited Sweden, he like Lithuania and hated Sweden...however I can easy admit that I am really envy about his travels...as I wrote one thing that really missed in my life for several reason is been TRAVELING...now I am planning my next holidays....
The other day I was reorganize all my books and I've found tons of travel guides including one that talks about Egyp, so after I've read this is what would be my personal itinerary...
10 SPOT YOU CANNOT MISS:

Giza Pyramids: is clear guide says thatyou need to watch and visit it at least once in your lifeCairo Tower: ok maybe this isn't best time to visit Cairo but it is interesting and from this tower you have an amazing view and guide says also a nice restaurant at 16th floor of itSunset on Nilo-I must to admit that I love at same level sunshine and sunset so probably I imagine that is a great…

During this week end I started to declutter and reorganize my books, I put all travel guides together and I am planning some little holidays...as I wrote one thing that I really missed until last month is been TRAVELING...so I am reading, looking on web, take notes, understand how my future budget will must to be and start to travel with my mind craving for future holidays (hopefully before summer 2015)

IT'S ARRIVED THE STRESSFUL TIME OF YEAR: XMAS TIME

How to survive to this celebration time? Ok I love Xmas time but I seriously hate that commercial feelings that I have every time I go into a shop that is selling a lot of Xmas stuffs...Most people think that this is the festivity most nice because you can receive tons of gifts but almost anyone thinks about real mean of this important date...However apart the important means , this is a very stressful time for several reasons...
If you are a couple you must absolutely choose if spend Xmas with parents-in-law, but this could be not so stressful with a good organization: a year to X's house, a year to Y's house and so for each year...good plan organization skill is required.
Gifts: who will receive xmas gift from you? Which is your budget? First for many years I did gifts to almost every single person I knew so I overspent for years, finally from my 20's I choose to do gifts to only few person, that can I call TRUE FRIENDS...and having a budget I decide a total budget for Xma…

LOVE TIPS 6 SUGGESTION FROM "HE'S JUST NOT INTO YOU" MOVIE

Anyone of us isn't perfect, but I think is a lot more stupid try to be someone completely different from us. Habvve you ever seen “He's just not into you movie”? Well I must to say that IT is a movie based on reality, most of common woman things, phrases & co, this movie said things that we already knew in our minds but we choose to be ignorant about them-yep we aren't ignorant, we choose to doesn't know something-and I must to admit that after this movie I did something different, but most of our dinner for girls only is always a topic: MEN
And yes I must to say that I am completely agree with movie and some of its suggestions:
If a man doesn't ask you a second date, doesn't call you, doesn't do absolutely nothing, we can also thing that a day he will be completely inlove for us but the ugly truth is that he isn't interested, so don't waste your time with someone that isn't interested into you.

If you had a nice date but he doesn't ask y…

STRAIGHT TALK, NO CHASER BYSTEVE HARVEY

Most of woman would like to know where there exactly is inside a male brain...especially about raltions...so when i was doing my food shopping into commercial center near home, I stopped myself into books corner watching and selcting books with diy fro kids and apart it my attention is been captured from a book where a MEN was saying what there is inside a male brain in different ages....maybe I'll understand a little bit more this complicated world....Steve Harvey explains what mens find sexy in a woman? what a woman must to do and say to receive engagement rings...I said we can be woman in career but we dream always Mr right and also when you found him seems that you need to have a translator to understand what there is inside a male's brain...

those are the chapters:
Understanding men

MY MONEY WEEKLY CHECK UP

This past week is been good because I am been very busy, yep I also had my weekly day dedicate for the first two hours of morning to BUDGETING, and yes I still have headache after I finished my weekly budget planning. I think I will have a love/hate relation with budget FOREVER but hey it works so it is essential instrument for my finances.
But I am so happy to have finally started to travcel again and I am going to do it more often is possible,then I had some free time cause the lovely 2,5 yearl old girl was visiting her grandparents, so I had time to dedicate to wrting for email marketing, for personal project, for blog post-to be honest I try to create nice contents...
And yes I am quiet happy about my finances, having a fixed monthly salary permit me to have a perfect planning of "personal spending", because I decided to use earning and tips from cafe and other freelance works directly for my "funds deposit".
This week I was going to do gym at least twice but I am…

ERICH VON NEFF WEEKLY POEM

Do you know that men are always worried about their "sex moments", Ok I must to say that I had this kind of confession from my male friends and if we must to be honest at 100% also we talk about their sex, what we liked what we disliked, what we'd want.... and first time I've read this poem I found instant connection with our weekly girl talks...mixed with that tv late night programs where mens talk about the taboo'stopic: Sex!!! WHy is so embarassing talk about it? 
And as every week I choose a poem to share with you, from the book "The cociane whores by Erich von Neff", adding pic and music video that I find are the perfect combo for each other.

MOVING THOUSHTS FOR JOB

Most of us wait to find the ideal job, some are quiet lucky to find it soon other needs more time, but how you can understand which is perfect job for you and if it means that you need to move.
In the last months I've thought a lot about it, I consider myself a work inprogress in several aspects of my life, but now I am focused a lot on savings but at the same time I'm working on future projects that could means also moving....Have you ever considered the idea of moving for work?
Which would be my ideal job? That make me wake up happy, knowing to have opportunity to travel very very often all around the world and give me time also to write...MY ideal job is a combo of two passions: traveling and writing...
I started to love traveling since childhood, during summer christian camps, there are places that I still have inside my heart and other that are still on list of places to visit...like Berlin and PAris, the first because every friend that visited it said that It is rich of art…

DATING SITE GOOD OR BAD?

Dating life is a little bit changed during in the years, long time ago my grandparents met in the village Ballroom...while my grandparents met into church and most of other raltives and friends met via mutual friends...
Now most of couples met via dating website, but is real opportunity or this means that you have unlimited opportunities... because web offers unlimited oppotunities to meet other people, fromall over the world and also if you think that "that" girl you met is nice but int he world there would be something better...well, this is a cons of it...
LEt me explain better, you do free subscription to a dating website...then you write what you're looking for and start your search, you can meet nice persons and then you can have real date with the one that seems perfect, but a minute before the date you receive a message froma nice guy and you start to think "wow, but I have a date with mr x so I mustn't reply to Mr y, and so start into your brain that web …

MY WEEKLY MONEY CHECK UP

Last week is been very very nice and interesting for several reasons, first is been my first holiday since 2012, seond I had time to spend with some friends of mine and third is been an occasion to mix work and pleasure on 31th of October during the Lucca Comics Event...
However I spent not so many money as I've tought, this permitted me to pay something to my parents and deposit a good amount into my savings... the lovely lttle reveren'd daughter is still on her grandparents in Procida, so those afternoon apart work with email marketing...I am doing a lotof dog sitting, using that time as gym time...today I had two moment, morning for errands and afternoon as dog sitter....but this week end I will be busy with baby sitting cause I don't have to work in the cafe...
I seriously need to reorganize my room there are too many magazines and books that soon will move me out from my room...so what I did last week? I ordered a christian calendar for my mum and Fireproof book, well I…

OUTFIT AND MAKE UP FOR A SPECIAL FRIEND'S PARTY

Don't you love this Valentino dress? yes I like it but I am not able to justify a purchase SO EXPENSIVE...most of people that I know for work and aren't friends usually are socked because they think that every woman could spend a fortune on clothes...well I'm not that kind of woman...I find so fun looking for cheapest version of high street brands:P
Let me explain, I am a woman that loves shopping and clothes but to be honest I am an avid reader and I could spend thousands of money on books and office supplies, when Iw orked in a call center, under the office there were: a mechanic, an hairdresser, a restaurant cafe, freezed fish shop, kid's clothes shop and my favourite shop ...I was into it at least twice per week and everytime I've bought something...new block notes, new pens, stationary set (also if I still envy my american/english friends that find nice stationary also in the supermarket).
Usually every year and every change of season I open my closet take out e…

WHAT I FIND REALLY NASTY IN OTHER PEOPLES

Most of us want to be perfect in every moment of the journey, well I am absolutely imperfect in the morning when I wake up and I still havent took my daily coffe, probably before this cup my language is very similar to a neaderthal men...I?m not kidding don't talk or ask me nothing before I finished my coffee...if you want to do it is at your risk...

However I had a friend that seemed perfect always, while I had very bad moments, for example that time that was a lot o f air and I forget to wear hat, my hair after 5 minutes were like a monster...Another day I was having a romantic day and what happens on my face? a big bubble...this is a thing that every woman hates, then I could continue for an eternity...but hei it happens and I decided to use irony to battle this thing, be ironic with yourself is the best solution in my personal opinion.


But to be honest at 100% there is a thing that I find really nasty in most people, the fact they don't ask when they don't understand som…
