I saw The Sign – and it’s Sag Swag!

Anyone who knows me knows I’m into astrology. Anyone who’s anyone in my life has already heard his or her ‘astrodescription’ in a nutshell or, depending on availability, interest, timing, reasoning, has received the abridged/extended natal chart gift of life and enlightenment from yours truly 😁 This is the first series of posts on my […]

Why anyone should listen to electronic music – playlist 1

I grew up surrounded by pop and rock music. My 6-year-older sister’s tastes evolved in parallel with the musical TV channels of the time, spanning from Michael Jackson to Metallica, Guns’n’Roses and The Cranberries. Although our first casette tape was Mariah Carey – Music Box 🤣 I discovered electronic music in its emerging days, as […]

Watch out: my Netflix top picks this summer

Had I not become a journalist-turned-MarCom specialist, there’s a high likelihood I would’ve become either a performer oooor… a performer’s performance specialist 😁. Basically, this is how I would sum up my unquenchable thirst for movies and TV series and my potential commentator-critic role I would one day assume. Until that day – and yes, […]

A woman in her 30’s guide to happiness – part 2

I should start by saying this isn’t necessarily part of the ‘guide’, but you’ll find that in all the good circumstances in your life, you (should) go by it: always to a follow-up 😀. And… then there’ no. 6: pick your battles. Unless it’s a life or death situation or actually debating whether to read […]

A woman in her 30’s guide to happiness – part 1

I am not the type of woman who reads self-motivating books. I’ve tried to finish Dale Carnegie’s Secrets to Success and landed at – wild guess over here 😀 – page 10. Never made it to page 11. However, I’m a very competitive person and I compete on a frequent basis with myself. Sometimes, that […]

My Elvira-style guilty pleasures: edgy hair

I don’t always wear chain-bolts-nails type of fashionable items, but if I had to choose between flowers and studs, I’d always go for the odd-woman-out latter. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I dislike feminine-preppy-chic imagery, I often display it myself. But there’s always a little devilish invisible counsellor on my shoulder, nitpicking about […]

Age-sex-playlist, pls!

Back in the day, when there was no Facebook Messenger – or Facebook, for that matter! – WhatsApp, iMessages, Slack or any other type of instant messaging tools aside from a very timid version of Yahoo! Messenger, there was… the Internet Relay Chat, most commonly known as mIRC. With its hook-up/ice breaker phrase, no matter […]

Tattoo Love Story

I got my first tattoo to celebrate my independence. 3 increasing in size stars on my right shoulderblade – one for every 12 months of my university years throughout which I worked to earn a living, support myself, build a career, alongside my studies. Summer. 21 going on 22. Cool as a cucumber when the […]

Accessories, my loves: the obligatory sunglasses

As a true accessories hoarder, I go by the life axioma that too many can never go in the same sentence as sunglasses. Metallic lense, wooden or glass rims, animal print or, at the other side of the spectrum, art pop motifs, gray, black, green, red lenses… you name it, I’ve tried, owned, yearned for […]

Accessories, my loves: quirky earrings

I stopped counting how many pairs of earrings I own after I passed the 100th pair threshold. Better for the economy, for my psyche, not to mention my budget 😁 I started playing around with earcuffs, semi-industrial piercings and other items of the sort when I got my entire left earlobe and nose pierced. Over […]
