Liebster Award.

Hello everyone!
I’ve been tagged by the lovely Bess for the Liebster! I’m very happy about it.. because I’ve never done something like this and I really wanted to try.
It's a tag to answer 10 questions about yourself and then to tag another 10 blogs
with 10 new questions. It's a great way for lesser known bloggers to support
and discover each other. (and I think this is great!)
The rules:
1. The tagged/nominated blogs must have under 200 followers
2. Tag the blog that nominated you
3. Let the people you tagged know so that they can respond
The questions I was asked:
1. Do you have any siblings? No. I’m an only child and although when I was little I really wanted to have a brother or a sister to play with.. now I’m just happy like this. :)
2. What is your blog about? Well, my blog is about everything! It’s about everything that I like and I want to share with you. Just some stuff wich I want to talk about with you.
3. If you have twitter, what is your twitter? My twitter is “may blossoms”.
4. If you have instagram, what is your instagram? My instagram is “elisamaistri”.
5. Why did you start blogging? I was a huge fan of Zoella.. I discovered her on YouTube. When I started knowing more of her, I found her beauty blog. Since then, I started becoming interested by the world of blogging and one day I decided to build up my own space in the world wide web.
6. What are your top 5 shops? Stradivarius, Topshop, Primark, Forever21, Brandy&Melville and Bershka. (yes, I know that they’re six.. but I wanted to mention also Bershka because I love lots of things of Bershka, and I own lots of them because it’s a very cheap shop! I love all of these shops and If you haven’t seen them yet, I think that you should absolutely check them out!)
7. What is your favourite song at the moment? Ouch. I can’t decide. I really love too many songs to be able to decide what’s my favourite one.
8. What is your motto? “Be the best version of yourself”. One day I found this quote on the internet and I fell in love with it because I really need to tell these words to myself.. I find them incredibly encouraging to live life to the fullest.
9. What is your favourite beverage? Um, I think that besides water (yes, I like to drink water) my favourite drink is coke. When I go out with friends I always take water or coke.
(I also really like tea though!)

10. What annoys you most? Something that annoys me a loooot is judgements. People should really judge themselves before even thinking about judging someone else, not only because they may judge something incorrectly but also because by doing that they will hurt someone else's feelings. So, I have an advice: please, next time you're going to make a bad judgement about someone, even if your intentions are good, count to ten in your mind, think about.. and in the end just don't say it!


My Questions:

1. What are some of your favourite books?
2. What is your blog about?
3. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?
4. If you have instagram, what is your instagram?
5. Why did you start blogging?
6. What are your top 5 shops?
7. What kind of music are you into?
8. What’s your favourite food?
9. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
10. What are some of your favourite movies?

Where I come from.

Hello everyone!

I can’t believe September has already started, and summer is almost finished. These three months had passed sooo fast that I can’t believe that next Thursday I’ll start school again.

I come from Italy, in a city called Verona. I’m sure that some of you who are reading know Verona. If not, I can tell you that It’s known for the Arena (No, I’m not talking about the Colosseum in Rome.. but they are very similar looking) and for the city of the Shakespeare's love between Romeo and Juliet.
I was born and raised here, in the same house (a few years ago we rebuilt it and now it looks new) for 16 years.
I come from a mom and dad who really love each other, and now that I’m growing up I can see how lucky I am to have parents who are in love as they are, because I’m beginning to see that actually lots of my friends have parents who divorced and that makes me sad.. I would just like them to live in a happy family as I do.
I really love my family. For family, I’m talking about me, my parents, and other members of my mom’s family: my two aunts (my mother’s sisters) and my two uncles, my two cousins, and my grandparents. I see them every weekend because we all go to lunch at my grandparents’ home on Sundays (And yes we have every time a BIG lunch all together - #italianstereotypes).
During summer we don’t see each other every weekend, but we organise trips together, I go on holiday with my aunt and my cousins come to me for some days. Talking about them, they cousins are both females. One is as old as me, and I spent all my childhood playing with her, and then there’s the younger one.
I just want to say that these people had contributed a lot to make up who I am.
I could start to write for hours and hours about all my life and how I became who I am, but you would probably get bored, so I’ll finish this post here.
With this post I shared a really little part of my life with you and I will share more with you, but I will share a little bit at a time.

I also really want to read about you. I'd love if you shared a piece of your life with me. Comment and let me now about you.

August 15th, A day at the lake.

So, I write my first post on this blog. Here we go.

Yesterday, August 15th, I went with family and friends to the Laghi di Lamar, in Trentino (Italy).
I find them absolutely gorgeous. The water is green, the only smell you feel is that of the nature and you’re surrounded by woods.

Although the water was not quite hot, in fact, it was chilly .. We all did a bath as the sun was beating down, and once past the trauma of getting into the water we were fine and it was actually good to swim in it.

Laghi di Lamar

On site you could lie down on the grass and eat a packed lunch, or you could go to eat at the bar.
Me, my dad, my aunt and uncle then went to go around the lake in the woods.

On the path I found a lot of butterflies (and some bees too) that I absolutely had to photograph. Among the butterflies and dragonflies (that moved too fast to be photographed), the gorgeous water and refreshing baths, I spent a wonderful day.

The beauty of imperfection


The day didn’t end at the Lake!

Towards evening we picked up our things and we went to dinner at a nice place called "Malga Brigolina."
Since we were in the mountains, there was an absolutely great view and it was full of animals such as sheep, goats, horses, cows, pigs, geese, chickens, rabbits and also dogs.



After having a delicious dinner and having a full stomach because of the huge plates that they served at the restaurant, we said goodbye and went home.

I recommend to go sometime, it's a really nice place, quiet and for those who love nature.

Let me know what you think, and still visit my blog to read the posts that I’m going to write soon.
