The Italian Life

A month....not a long period of time, but yet it seems this city knows how to capture your heart and provoke your interest and inspiration to bloom. While writing and sipping my signature drink of choice, I have also managed to master the dark arts of investing time into quality learning, even tho the chaotic and creative Week of Fashion caused an overflow of sexy, well-dressed, put together, design enthusiastic individuals in the city center (oh boy, as you can imagine YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT THEM and admire the clothes and bold choices).

It must be a challenge, mustn't it? The separation from family and friends is hard? You must be struggling dear?

- Actually never felt better, dear.

Apparently the three most popular questions asked I can not seem to answer any different than this. And , yes maybe it can be hard, but having the support always in your heart, being aware of your goals, dreams and aspirations is worth the risk and new found independence can only help, instead of slowing you down.

So, what has changed (except from my surrounding and eating habits #pastaallaround): The mindset. Apparently all Italians are relaxed compared to Serbians... and I mean really, really relaxed. Their main mantra obviously being: I don't give a sh*t . (dear Serbs, please start using this mantra immediately. WARNING: May cause positive effects on mood and sleep)

What have I learned so far?

I  Dress the way you feel comfortable, but keep your uniqueness in the process.
Wider pants, high-waisted jeans, plaid shirts and over-sized sweaters #ladolcevita seemingly doesn't always require the the tighter the better principle as well as the shorter the better principle (common for areas like my home country).

II Be busy. Italians are always doing something, yet still having time for everything...
Sometimes in order to show your full potential you have to leave the comfortable bubble of familiar and step into unfamiliar terrain.. Sign up for drawing courses, associations (which also looks good on your CV in the future) and spend time researching events and opportunities that involve things you like and are passionate about.
Secret incoming: Even when in a rush, order an espresso, a cornetto and enjoy it while casually standing and leaning on the bar.


III Be sporty! As many of you already know I am very passionate about running and was therefore sad when I couldn't run anymore for a certain period of time. Here, one can find plenty of motivation, and I have found my personal one too..
Everyone runs, and those who don't, welp, they prefer their bicycles obviously.
What motivates me: realizing that sometimes tho people pretend my opinion and interests don't have a value and as a result interrupt me, that exactly those interests and stories leave a mark on them, so why don't I try to top that and become a even better version of myself. (and yes, also confidence is benefiting from Italy)

So, how to end this random session of confessions, honest thoughts and inspirational attempts, I guess it is best done through pictures, enjoy your evening lovelies... And prepare, cuz this is just the beginning of a good story....

Oh Roberto, Roberto


Shoes...every girls dream and nightmare in the same time.  Leather, latex, wooden heels, everything is possible nowadays (even seen people in Louis XVI heels). The only thing that matters to me, they gotta be Made In Italy. Don't we all love la dolce vita, the Italian swag and style, fresh smell of polished leather shoes, ahhh, starting to tear up right now XD.



 That is why I was especially excited when discovering a new, fresh face in the designer scene. Roberto Fest, may I add, a Milano company, not only makes shoes, but they are comfortable too. Modern, futuristic and golden (#punintended).



This pair carried me through the whole night of my prom (a #prom post coming up soon) and made me shine on one of the biggest nights and milestones in the process called growing up (and boy it's a long one)


All the other fabulous shoes can be found on robertofesta.com or the company's instagram page @robertofestamilano (p.s. there is even a see-through heel available).

 P.S. For us Serbian girls, you can easily buy them in Kralja Petra street in the boutique Graffiti, they both have the main shoe line as well as the the other two ones of Roberto Festa.

Housing Around...

                   Made with Canva
We are all full of ideas, creative and all sorts of innovative, yet we never know how to style our personal four walls...
Is it that hard? It seems as if we are afraid of colors, personal elements and especially prints (bohoooo). Freaked out by the idea that we need a lot of money in order to make it chic, cozy and extra home sweet home.
Lies people, all lies, with the right tricks and measures you can achieve the perfect put together look for your house, condo or rental. Where do I find those tricks you may ask, welp, scroll down and find out...

1) PRINTS

With the right wallpaper every room can go from zero to hero. Complement the colors and remember keep the furniture neutral and in the tones of the wallpaper ;)

My Tip: Put a wallpaper only on one of the walls and keep the others white, this way you will maximize it's effect and even enhance the size of the room

2) PLANTS



          via Pinterest
Dear people, don't be afraid to put plants in your homes, even in small spaces they will add even more oxygen and give the space a more natural vibe, which we all want.

My Tip: For my fellow small spaces/corner lovers I recommend making a flower corner (like in the pictures show below)

3) MIRRORS

In order to open up the space and gain the sense that it is even bigger, strategically place mirrors throughout the space. Small, big or mosaic ones, which ever kind suits your style. It will both look stylish and luxurious.

My Tip: Additionally, place mirror details, trays  or sculptures

4) WALL ART

Empty walls... my worst nightmare and enemy.
Aren't they ugly, starring at you. Instead of I've got a blank space baby, and I'll write your name, just fill it in with wall art. Small, medium and large pictures look best when combines into a huge unit. Try mixing and matching them in order to achieve the perfect style.

My Tip: You on't always have to invest in expensive art pieces, instead use your books or record collection to add a personal touch.

Parisian From Head To Toe...




You finally finish your graduation work, deliver it @ school, come back home and figure out you really don't have anything smart to do. Twelve years of school are over, four more to come #luckyme (just kidding can't wait for those college days to arrive ;))


How to enjoy your new found freedom? We always hear the same story: I'm bored, have nothing to do and so many good people end up in front of the TV, watching the Kardashians, instead of doing something actually useful. #NOTCOOL


We might not want to admit it, but we are all guilty of hanging to much on our phones, instead of going old-fashioned (which is still IN btw) with a good book. Style, wild personalities, playful characters and a lot of emotions, ladies and gentlemen: HOW TO BE PARISIAN, my book for you... (or as some would say Meet Aleksandra, cuz it is rather similar to my lifestyle XD)


Serious questions incoming: How does one become Parisian and is it even possible? The book shows only one thing clearly, it is important to be yourself in every aspect of life. No clear path to determine, nor guidelines, follow your heart and stay true to your personality, that is the way of a Parisian gal.


Be rebellious, enjoy everything, never answer the phone immediately. Be late with style, you're a busy lady ;). Believe to achieve and dream big, laugh at stupid jokes and remember every obstacle is an opportunity. Let your charm guide you, as well as your staple piece of clothing (which for me would be a Valentino bag). A book offering us a lot: laughter, reality, clarity and that crazy is also a way of sanity. For sure worth my time and should be yours.


XO
Aleks

P.S. Serbian version down below



Predas maturski, vratis se kuci i shvatis da nemas sta da radis. Dame i gospodo doslo je i to doba. Dvanaest godina skolovanja proslo i jos cetiri me cekaju XD (salim se, jedva cekam te studentske dane).

Kako uzivati u novostecenoj slobodi? Cesto cujemo staru pricu: dosada je tu, nemamo inspiracije, i tako zagine vecina dobrih ljudi ispred TV-a i gleda Kardashian-e #notcool 


Svi cesto zaboravimo da spustimo malo telefone i u old school (koji je idalje moderan) maniru uzmem knjigu u ruku. Stil, divlja licnost, razigrani karakter i emocije. Dap, zvuci malo kao ja, kad uz to dodamo i malu rutinu sminkanja, eve vam Aleksandre. How To Be Parisian, odnosno-dnevna doza Srbende: Kako biti parizanka, moja knjiga za vas.


Slede konkretna pitanja: Da li je tesko biti Parizanka i kako uopste biti Parizanka? Dok citas ovu knjigu mozes doci samo do jednog zakljucka: moras biti svoja. Zacrtanog puta nema, osobitosti se slave i velicaju, sminka je tu, ali da li ona treba biti u fokusu? #NE


Budi buntovnik, uzivaj, ne javljaj se odmah na telefon. Kad zakasnis, zakasni sa stilom, ipak si zauzeta 24/7 ;D

Pravi planove, smej se glupavim salama i zivi punim plucima. Neka ti sarm bude omiljeno oruzje, ofc u kombinaciji sa komadom odece koji te cini srecnom. Knjiga za uzivanje, smeh i po koji dobri savet, zato dame moje, bacite pogled.

S ljubavlju,
Aleks
