I have a real love for real estate and I know that I'm in good company
Maybe you've just decide that is time to buy your first home but isn't an easy affair, let me explain better...there are things that is better to know BEFORE fix first appoitments with realtors.
First of all ask to yourself which kind of property are you looking for: apartment, studio, loft, attic, villa, townhouse? Where (centre, country)? What your ideal house must to have (balcony, terrace, garage, large rooms, big kitchen, etc. etc.).... then start to see websites and take notes about prices but don't book appointments yet...
Call your bank and fix an appointment to talk about mortage, most banks offer great mortages to their clients, this means that you must to have all your finanncial docuemnts in order (salary, other loans active and if you are a copule that share budget banks needs also financial informations and socuments from your partner)...
Bank will say if you are aoìpproved or not for mort…

I understood that something happened...However seems that my hometown is really protected, most people say that for the sandy subsoil...
I've started to refresh my German, I've studied during high school, but after diploma I never used it, so I'm a little bit rusty and honestly my memory is diffeent from when I was teen, however this help to keep my brain active and so I tend to do learn something new always!

LUNCH BOX IDEAS

August is ending and with it also summer holidays, well I had a sort of staycation so no holiday but I'm going to have a long weekend in the end of September or October to visit some friends... However I was talking with some friends of mine that have a 9-5 regular job and saw difference between their normal diet and holiday meals, well believe or not their choices are been a lot healtier during holiday and also cheper...so I suggested to try to bring lunch daily and limit to buy it this means a good amount of savings for the end of the year!!!
If you are reading magazine or blogs you'd already noticed that are full of article on BACK TO SCHOOL, BACK TO WORK  with a lot of tips and ideas for fashion and food... Maybe you have the worst habit to buy your lunch daily and believe me you can save THAT MONEY, I'm not saying that you cannot do but limiting it at once per week and putting money saved into travel fund you'll notice how to save quickly and eating well.

HELPING AMATRICE

Tonight I was sleeping not so good, I had sensation that something was going wrong and in the middle of night I felt like my bed was moving, but honestly I've thought that was a very wild wind...

MY SUMMER READINGS!!!

As I wrote I love reading and I've read a lot during this summer, this morning I had my first coffee date with ex colleagues and then I visit my favorite bookstore asking for a couple of books that are going to arrive one in the next week and another in the end of the month...
So when a friend of mine asked which books I've read I've sent pics of the entire books read this summer, well she thought I've read only one or two, while I've read some more
I'm waiting for CALENDAR GIL volume 3 and 4 but probably I am not going to keep them, yes books are nice but honestly isn't a romance that I'd read several times without being bored about the entire story, but this is my opinion only...
SO CHE CI SEI/IL MIO LIETO FINE SEI TU: ok I must to confess these two are my favorite readings of this summer, because story is so real, talking with some friend of mine and also with personal experience isn't so good see that a guy had red your message on whatsup but he di…

This past week is been good and busy as usual but I'm been able to spend a lot of time in the pool near home with friends, we had a lot of real laughs and there is nothing better of quality time spent with really important people: family and friends

 I have a fairy skin but I like sunbathing so in the years I had several sunburns on my skins but in the last years I really understood the importance to have a skin protected, this is why also if my skin is already tanned ( my max level is caramel color) I am still using sunscreen.
I used my weeknights to read and during this past week I received also books that I've ordered, one for me and one for my mother that is been really happy about this gift, I've read So che ci sei  (THE HOOK), I loved and hated at the same time all the single words in the books (yes there is also a sequel called "Il mio lieto fine sei tu" by Elisa Gioia) becuse every single words sounded so familiar and I can say these two are books that I ca…
