Back on YouTube?

Era da un’eternità che non apparivo su YouTube. Infatti, l’ultimo video era solo un riflesso di me! Oggi ho deciso di pubblicare qualcosa: una video review. Buona visione! Iscrivetevi, se vi va (a me farebbe piacere e mi rallegrerebbe la giornata). Non so quando tornerò…

New starts: and more…

Long time since my last post, huh? Yes, indeed, but many things have happened since 2017: I changed home several times and moved country too! Right now, I’m writing from Birmingham, where I live and work. I’m going to graduate in Egyptology pretty soon: a great goal I couldn’t achieve without determination and some love.

New life in Birmingham

I experienced some ups and downs as often happens in life but I’m still here to share more stories from my new ‘homes’. Join me at That small personal blog – known as Valens… per voi –  house of beauty and indie designers is new and improved. While being away and bored with a shitty job, I launched my very personal guide and diary to Italy and Italian culture: ItalianMemories, because my memories are coming back and itch like hell. I must share them with a huge laugh.

This new life was the result of a huge jump towards the unknown and I wish I could inspire you to make a leap of faith: I covered this and more on the University of Birmingham PG Recruitment Blog.

In these 3 years, I’ve been blessed to discovered places, people and things. I have many ‘virtual postcards’ and ‘insta blogs’ on my Instagram page, where you can have a taste of this new world…

I hope you can stay with me on this new journey, bab.
