Spending my time...


Having a life is very time consuming ;). I think most of you will agree with me !. I very often wish my day lasted much more than 24 hours ! And if you are a blogger, you must have at least once felt guilty if neglecting your blog.
I have a full time job in an office and I like my job so much. It's the right dose of stability and also creativity. I spend a lot of time at the computer and yet, when I am at home and have got a bit of spare time, here I am, on the pc again. I know how time consuming surfin the net can be...I love to tweet so much, I check my e-mails, I visit my fave blogs, I try to reply to comments on my blog, I update my tumblr, check out my Facebook page, pick the photos for a post on my blog and when I do all of that the clock seems to go faster than usual !.
Besides all of this, I also have to find time for the house, the gym, seeing friends, spending quality time with love and family, watching all the tv series I am fond of (there's LOADS and the list keeps growing !) and, of course, practicing my favourit sport of all time...shopping !. Do you also feel like if time is never enough to do all you wanna do or it is just me ?.


L'avere una vita propria richiede molto tempo ;). Credo che molti di voi saranno d'accordo con me !. Spesso vorrei che le mie giornate durassero molto più delle semplici 24 ore ! E in caso voi siate blogger, dovrete anche aver avuto almeno una volta la brutta sensazione di sentirvi in colpa in caso abbiate trascurato un po' il blog.
Io lavoro full time in un ufficio e mi piace molto il mio lavoro. Ha la giusta dose di stabilità e di creatività. Trascorro molto tempo al computer ed eppure, non appena a casa ho un po' di tempo libero, rieccomi di nuovo al pc.
Sapete quanto navigare in internet faccia perdere tempo...mi piace stare su Twitter, controllare la posta elettronica, visitare i miei blog preferiti, cercare di rispondere a tutti i commenti lasciati sul mio blog, aggiornare il tumblr, controllare la mia pagina su Facebook, scegliere le foto e scrivere un nuovo post sul blog e quando faccio tutte queste cose l'orologio sembra impennarsi e andare più velocemente del normale !.
Oltre a tutto questo, occorre trovare il tempo per la casa, la palestra, uscire con gli amici e stare con l'amore e con la famiglia, guardare tutte le serie tv che amo (una lunga lista che continua a crescere !) e, ovviamente, praticare il mio sport preferito: lo shopping !. Vi sentite anche voi come se il tempo non bastasse mai o sono solo io ?.

New on Fashion and Cookies !


Since I appreciate so much all the time my readers spend over my blog and I am happy to spend my time over some wonderful blogs, I wanna introduce you to a new feature of Fashion and Cookies...since the opening of this blog I've been receiving a few awards, the Versatile blogger Award, the Creative blogger award and some others that are very popular among the blogging community...well, I have decided to create a personal award from my blog, to be given from time to time to blogs I appreciate a lot for some special reasons - just to remember that having a successful blog doesn't mean having many followers, it means having quality posts and putting true passion in blogging. So, let me introduce you to the Cookie blog award ! The blogs tthat will receive this award will be linked on the post I make so that the others can visit them and if they accept it they'll be able to display it wherever they want with the code I will give them and also write down what is their fave fashion item and what is their fave kind of cookies :-P.
The blogs receiving the Cookie award today are...

Da Paura, Rachel's beautiful blog...she is creative, talented and I love her style and attitude ! She is american and she has a special relationship with my country, she's been living in Italy, check out her lovely blog !

Feast.Fashion.Faves, lovely blog from Amanda, she has such a sweet smile and loves food and shopping, her blog is an irresistable mixture of those !


Siccome apprezzo molto tutto il tempo che i miei followers trascorrono sul mio blog e sono contenta di trascorrere il mio leggendo alcuni blog meravigliosi, vorrei presentarvi una nuova caratteristica di Fashion and Cookies...da quando ho aperto il blog ho ricevuto diversi premi, il Versatile blogger award, Creative award e altri che sono molto diffusi nella community, pertanto ho deciso di creare un premio personale del mio blog da dare ogni tanto a dei blog che per me si distinguono particolarmente per la cura e l'impegno o qualche motivo in particolare - anche per ricordare che avere un blog di successo non significa certamente avere tanti lettori/followers, ma avere post di qualità che trasmettano passione in ciò che si fa. Pertanto, lasciate che vi presenti il Cookie blog Award ! I blog che lo riceveranno saranno linkati da me sul relativo post in modo che chi non li conosce li possa visitare e se i bloggers accetteranno, dovranno semplicemente disporlo dove vorranno con il codice che verrà dato da me e scrivere qual'è l'articolo fashion da loro preferito e quale gusto o tipo di Cookie è quello che preferiscono :-P.
I due blog premiati per questa prima volta sono quelli di Rachel e di Amanda, il cui link è scritto sopra nella parte in inglese ;).

  1. I totally know what you mean about not having enough time and yes, I get guilty about neglecting my blog even if it's just for a couple of days.

    Nice outfit, I like your furry boots!

  7. Everything that you wrote regarding lack of time during the day and wishing that days could last longer than 24 hours... I agree with every single word you wrote. I feel the same and have the same problem of having too many things to do, too many people to be with and too little time to do it as much as I would want and as quality as it should be...

  8. Dearest Vale, you have made my day and put the biggest smile on my face!!! I couldn't be more honoured by this award and especially that is coming from you -- someone that I admire, respect, and receive so much inspiration from. Thank you SO SO much... I will be displaying this in my next post, and adding it to my awards in the "press" tabs of my blog "pages." Thank you for your kind words as well, and how true my love for your country!

    Also, this outfit is beautiful. I'm especially smitten by those gorgeous boots... ahh so perfect and gorgeous with the way you styled them.

    Lastly, I didn't realize I need to fill something out for your giveaway...so I'm off to do it for sure!

    Thank you again xoxoxo

  9. @Rachel: You're so very welcome honey, you totally deserve it ! As you can see the "reply" thing doesn't work on my layout, grrr this is so annoying ! I will have to figure it out soon or later, gotta bring the nerd inside of me out, haha but as I wrote in my post, I lack of time...off to bed now ! LOL
    Much love xoxo Vale

  10. omg! In a woman's life a day should have at least 30hours, don't you agree?

    ReplyDelete
  11. absolutely know the feeling with not enough time....
    and such a great idea with the Cookie award!
    i totally agree, having a great blog does NOT mean having a ton of followers.
    ive seen blogs with 1000 followers and i just ask myself, why?
    and then i see blogs with 50 that are MUCH better and higher quality, and i think to myself that they definitely deserve more recognition.

    :)

  13. I totally agree. There are not enough hours in the day! And since I blog on my own time after my full time job as well, there isn't much time to do anything else!

    The cookie award is also a great idea!

    Keep doing what you're doing :)

  23. tempo...pochissimo!!! mi riduco a dedicarmi alle faccende extra lavoro-casa-famiglia la sera, dopo aver messo a nanna la mia mini-donna, alle volte approfittando del fatto che il mio maritozzo il più delle volte torna tardi...però, quando riesco a fare tutto e BENE, mi sento stra-soddisfatta! BUONA GIORNATA!

  24. I couldn't agree more! there's never enough time to do all I want and I end up getting too little sleep! I always say the day should have a lot more than just 24h!!! love your boots! xo

  26. Oh my, I know this so well! Sometimes, I have so little time to post something on my blog! My Twitter is pretty abandoned and replying to my emails is getting pretty hard sometimes, because I have to do like thousand things at once and concentrate. Anyways, thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog, I really appreciate it! ♥

  32. I´d also need a day to last longer than 24 hrs. I´d also need to have more money to spend it on coffees and food to have a chat with all my friends over. :) You look great of course and thank you very much for your personal invitation for your giveaway. All the dresses look gorgeus I´m just worried I wouldn´t have a place to wear them. I don´t go to formal mixers or balls that much...

  33. El problema con el tiempo es general, lo tenemos todas.A mi el blog me sirve un poco para desconectar de otras cosas así que de momento... aquí estoy.

  37. Even though I'm not working yet because I'm a high school student, I know perfectly what you're talking about. Sometimes I barely have time to do my homework and study, let alone blogging.

    By the way, I love the whole award idea, keep it up! Congratulations to the awarded girls :)

  41. I know what you mean about there not being enough hours in a day! I wish days were longer because I often fall behind on a lot of tasks. I am a wife, mother, full time student and work on the weekends so it is hard to make time for leisurely activities.

    Also wanted to say thank you for stopping by my site.
