Ops, I did it again !


I know, National Geographic is gonna hire me with all these animalier looks, but I just can't help loving it...so, ops, I did it again ! ;)
Yesterday I went to the movies to watch "Mission Impossible: Ghost protocol" only after completing my personal mission: buying a Prada bag I had been lusting for one entire week.
As always, I had a great pair of excuses to justify my purchase: celebrating the first year of this blog (thank all of you so much for your wishes !) and buying myself an anticipated Valentine's day present...it's really true...better than red roses there is...a red Prada bag ! ;)


Lo so, il National Geographic mi vorrà assumere con tutti i look animalier che posto, ma non posso fare a meno di amare le stampe leopardate...così, ops, l'ho fatto ancora ! ;).
Ieri sono stata al cinema a vedere "Mission Impossible: Ghost protocol" solo dopo aver completato la mia personale missione: comprare una borsa di Prada che avevo adocchiato la settimana scorsa.
Come sempre, avevo un'ottima scusa per l'acquisto: festeggiare il primo anno di questo blog e farmi un regalo di S. Valentino in anticipo...è il caso di dire, meglio delle rose rosse, una borsa di Prada rossa ! ;).



Dress and long cardi: D&G
Shoes: Cesare Paciotti
Bag: Balenciaga
Sunnies: Ray Ban


In these pics I am wearing Urban Decay's new Super Saturated lipgloss pencil, I love it so much ! It's long wearing and the color is so vibrant. I am using the color Big Bang ;)


Valentine's day is getting near...and I know people have mixed feelings over this day...some love it, other dread it and think it's just a commercial operation !. What are your views on it ?. I do personally think of course a couple should try to be romantic everyday, not only on Valentine's day, but I like this day cause my name is Valentina and I have always celebrated it even when I was single, years ago !.
Now to me Valentine's day is just another chance to be as corny as I can be with my love, LOL.
Of course I haven't always been happily in love, so I remember the feeling I had when I was a single and just looking at all those heart shaped images and cheesy stuff made me a bit nauseaous...so...Here are my general tips for spending Valentine's day:

- If you are in a couple, spend your day with your loved one doing something you BOTH like...watch a movie, go for a walk, even something simple, cook a special dinner or go to a cozy restaurant, try to surprise your lover with something different
- If you are a single and you feel a bit low, engage in a bit of shopping, either offline or online...there's nothing bad in pampering yourself a bit, cause after all it's true you must love yourself first :)
You will be able to find special promotions for shopping online on a few websites...Romwe will hold a big promotion activity on Valentine’s Day (14thFeb). All items can save 30% from the regular price by inserting the following coupon code: V-day30%
- If you are a bit broke, you can spend the day reading a good book or just going out with other single friends or having your SPA day at home (nails, pedicure, scrub...)
- What about entering a few Valentine's Day Giveaways ? You might win something nice ! Hint: this blog is gonna have a Valentine's Giveaway starting next Wednesday, as soon as the winner from the Zeleb Giveaway will be announced ! ;)



Il giorno di S. Valentino si avvicina...e so che i pensieri circa questo giorno sono molto diversi...alcuni lo amano, altri quasi lo temono o pensano sia solo una operazione commerciale ! Quali sono le vostre opinioni in proposito ?. I penso naturalmente che una coppia dovrebbe cercare di essere romantica ogni giorno, non solo a S. Valentino ma devo dire che mi piace anche perché mi chiamo Valentina e proprio per questo l'ho sempre in qualche modo festeggiato, anche quando, anni fa, ero single !.
Ora S. Valentino per me è solo un'altra occasione per essere ancora più sdolcinata col mio amore, LOL.
Non sono sempre stata felicemente innamorata, pertanto ricordo come mi sentivo da single e quando il solo guardare tutti quei cuoricini e cose un po' kitch mi disgustava un bel po'...allora, ecco i miei consigli per S. Valentino:

- Se siete in coppia, trascorrete la vostra giornata facendo qualcosa che piaccia ad ENTRAMBI...guardate un film, passeggiate insieme, anche qualcosa di semplice, cucinate una cenetta speciale, andate in un bel localino, cercate di sorprendere la persona amata facendo qualcosa di diverso
- Se siete single e vi sentite un po' giù, fate un po' di sano shopping, sia offline che online...non c'è niente di male nel coccolarvi un po', dopotutto è vero che bisogna innanzitutto amare noi stessi ;)
Alcuni siti di shopping online faranno delle speciali promozioni per S. Valentino...
Romwe farà una grande promozione per il giorno 14 Febbraio (S. Valentino), con uno sconto del 30% del prezzo normale inserendo il seguente codice coupon: V-day30%
- Se siete un po' al verde, trascorrete la giornata in relax, leggendo un bel libro o uscite con altri amici single o fate una giornata SPA in casa (nails, pedicure, scrub...)
- Che ne dite di partecipare a qualche Giveaway di S. Valentino ? Suggerimento: il Giveaway di Fashion and Cookies per S. Valentino partirà questo mercoledì, dopo l'estrazione del Giveaway Zeleb...;)

  8. Ciao, Vale!
    If I were you, I wouldn't give up wearing animal looks, either! You look amazing with them, no matter what PETA has to say about it!
    As for that red Prada arm-candy, I'd rather get that gift than roses -not that I have anything against them, but...
    XOXO, María José

  12. Super beautiful Prada bag! Love it!
    I don't like Valentine's day, I have more special days throught the year such as my wedding anniversary and I also think that my man should love me every day and try to surprise me and be romantic without a calendar day reminding him about it.

  40. Mmmm, caruccio questo cinema eh? :P scherzo, hai fatto proprio bene a concederti un bel regalo! In quanto a San Valentino, che dire...io non l'ho mai festeggiato. Non che sia una di quelle persone ferocemente agguerrite contro le feste "commerciali"; semplicemente penso che, dal momento che le coppie da festeggiare hanno già il loro anniversario e i single (giustamente) si deprimono in vista di quel giorno, se ne potrebbe anche fare a meno! bacio :)

    Ti seguo da subito, mi piace molto il tuo stile! Se ti va di ricambiare ne sarei felice!
