“Knock – Knock : Murder or Treat?”

provide yourself with the S’mores Lollipop * and other mouth-watering treats, with a beautiful face mask (one of those that…. if you open the door with that cucumber smeared on your face you are more scarying than if you wore a full Halloween costume), and make sure that there is still a daylight, or someone in your home that can protect you from the psychological anxiety that this show generates.

Halloween has always been one of my favourite celebrations!

I know, I know, is not an Italian custom. giphy8So what? I celebrate it anyway. It will be for my penchant for the theatre but the idea of dressing up and walk around with a different face for a night in which everything-can-happen, it’s something I really like!

Who went to England knows that the weather is almost dull and rainy, like a melancholy memory postcard. And the Fall is like this: it looks a bit like an impressionist painting where the brushstrokes are violent, thunderous but delineate a gentle, comforting landscape.

 “Downton Abbey” proved that drama didn’t have to be dark…or…

tumblr_np7rqscsu81r4uhhfo2_250They say thatSpringis the season of love . They say. Well, I still have to find out who’s saing that but since the gardens become green again , the flowers bloom , the swallows come back , it seems to be so : love is in the air .
I do not know whether it is true or just a romantic legend , what I know for sure is that there is pollen in the air and that means that my eyes begin to shed tears , my nose to drip , my throat swells up , I begin to scratch like a monkey in rut and I’m more irritable than usual .giphy8If the formula applies to you as well [Spr+ing = Allergy²] you are in the right place because I think I have the appropriate relief for our sufferings : all we need…
