“Words, Secrets and Purple Rain”

Two women, Vida and Margareth, a story, precisely the thirteenth, which brings them together and puts them against each other, one next to the other. How can I describe this novel in one word? Magnetic. Without understanding why, you find yourself drawn to the folds of history. The words, written in a “Bronte” style have the power to nail you to the pages, they are so stimulating that they seem like those of a spell.

“Of course I loved books more than people.”[1]

I have to admit it; I made the typical mistake that I always recommend you not to do: I chose the book from the cover! But you have to understand me: a book with books on it! How could I resist? I.
The well-known bookaholic????

Shelves are full of books with covers of the kind, badly written, but I was lucky because in this used book market I found this really not bad volume.
Ok first of all let’s prepare a nice Naked Cake with the Caramello Salato’s recipe, let’s settle on the rocking chair in the patio (in the absence of which you can run around the city / town until you find one, … or you can look for a play area and equipped with antihistamines, mosquito repellent and Walkman … or for the more contemporary an ipod…

” Apple Pie & Crystal Shoes “

the perplexed girl who lived in the boot, prepared the apple pie * in honour of Grimilde, here transformed into Regina

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Once upon a time, in a boot-shaped wasteland, there was a girl perplexed by the fact that although they were inept and a bad example for little girls, the princesses of fairy tales always defeated the villains. […] This perplexed girl, growing up, had become more and more team-villains and she wanted alternative versions in which characters like Maleficent, Ursula, Jafar or Grimilde finally got the victory […] Desperate, the perplexed girl thought there was no hope, until one day her team-villains friend invited her to start a new TV series in which the Evil Queen had defeated the Heroes by blocking them in a city without time and without reminiscence, making them live like regular mortals in which she was the only one with the The Dark One  aware of the truth.

“Your behavior is a choice; it isn’t who you are
[1].” 

The turn of the seasons brings us back toSpringin its full glory of life and rebirth after the long, cold winter . The skirts are getting shorter ( well, they are if you had  to go to the beautician! ) , fashions change , it comes the inundation of ceremonies that increase all in the same short period in which it is assumed there is enough sun to enjoy it but not too much to curse the celebrated … and theflowers bloom .
Being allergic to pollen and associated I always made sure that on special occasions instead of flowers people send me chocolates , books or other types of gifts . But on the rare circumstances that I received the floral tributes I have always had the curiosity to go to discover the…

“Haru And Cherry Blossoms”

Thr0ugh The Mirr0r

Hanami (lit. “flower viewing”) is the Japanese traditional habit of enjoying the transient beauty of flowers, flowers (“hana”) in this case almost always referring to those of the cherry (“sakura”) or, less frequently, plum (“ume”) trees. From the end of March to early May, sakura bloom all over Japan, and around the first of February on the island of Okinawa. [1]

Have you ever attended theflowering of the cherry trees?

nev2bpeUnfortunately, I did.tumblr_n53rkxfkyu1sat0smo1_250 In Rome, at the EUR’s lake, a couple ofsprings ago . Do not get me wrong, it is one of the best spectacles in the world , but as I mentioned in another place, for me Spring is a real challenge to survival !
And a “pollen waterfall” that runs direct into my respiratory system is not exactly the romantic image that you would expect when you think of the cherry trees in bloom .
If you are…

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…

“A tree, a plaid and Battenberg cake’s smell”

  “I like autumn. The drama of it; the golden lion roaring through the back door of the year, shaking its mane of leaves. A dangerous time; of violent rages and deceptive calm, of fireworks in the pockets and conkers in the fist.” [1] https://youtu.be/XpqjEnRU6uM   Do you believe in magic? I'm not talking about hand… Continue reading “A tree, a plaid and Battenberg cake’s smell”
