November Blog Challenge - 1 & 2

I just found this lovely girl blog IlseDanielle.com and first post I read is…the November blog challenge!
I’m usually quite attracted by challenge so I thought “Why not?”. Considering is November 2nd today, I’ll have to catch up with 2 days in 1. Let’s see how the challenge is structured (courtesy of Ilse):

What is the idea of the challenge?
For every day I made a different topic or task where I have to write about. I will write as much as possible in detail about every topic.
These are the topics per day:
(I might make some slight changes in the topics before the challenge starts so keep watching my blog)
Day 1: Write a short introduction about yourself + post a recent photo you took and tell about it.
Day 2: Write about a place you visited.
Day 3: Make a list of your 3 favourite books and write about them shortly.
Day 4: What is your favourite quote?
Day 5: 20 random facts about you
Day 6: 10 likes and 10 dislikes.
Day 7: Describe your day in great detail.
Day 8: Choose your best photo ever taken. Decribe the moment and explain why it's the best.
Day 9: Movietime!
Day 10: Overview of your Bucketlist.
Day 11: Pick a song that matches your mood today.
Day 12: Your 2 favourite cosmetic/body products
Day 13: Weird hobby's
Day 14: Put your Spotify playlist - any playlist - on shuffle, and write shortly about the first 10 songs that pop up. Why did you add them?

So today is all about myself and a place I visited.

My name’s Claudia, I’m 20 and something years old and I live in Italy. Blogging is not my job, is an hobby I have and the natural evolution of my insanely passion for writing. I define myself as the Queen of Randomness because I’m curious and passionate about so many things I cannot really say my blog is just about one topic. The majority of time I write about beauty and fashion but you can find posts about travels, music, cinema, cooking or DIY in here. I consider my blog an happy place to write and share thoughts and opinions and to enjoy some chit chat with fellow queens.
I have 2 degrees on Foreign Language. My mother tongue is Italian but I found myself quite comfortable expressing myself in English and I can also speak Spanish, a bit of French and some Portuguese.
My Twitter description says “Made in Italy. I love old things, Ancient Egypt, One Republic, Inter and roses. Queen of Randomness” and that’s pretty much everything about it.
The pic I chose is one from one of my best friend best day: her wedding. I chose this pic because I love how it looks like. It looks like a postcard from the 50’s but it really is an iPhone pic of 2015. Italy has some of the best landscapes of the world. We cannot deny this, c’mon. Place of pic: Umbria, Italy.

If I have to pick a place I visited, I cannot do anything but talk about New York. Someone should warn you: when you visit New York, you never wanna leave. And that’s how I felt. I spent 5 of my 15 days in the US in the big Apple (you can see a quick post here) and I left a piece of my heart in there. New York is really a concrete jungle, a city that never sleeps and that has something from everyone. NY is inspiring: every corner you walk by there’s something to be amazed at. And the landscapes, WOW just WOW. In Italy we’re quite used to some spectacular views but NY is something special for me. I felt so good walking all by myself on the streets of NY, I felt at home. I absolutely want to go back because you never have enough of NY.

If you want to jump on board on the November Blog challenge, just follow the rules and tweet me your posts (@ClaudiaAlready) so I can read them!

Ho appena trovato il blog carinissimo di questa ragazza IlseDanielle.com e il primo post che leggo è…la November blog challenge!

Quindi oggi parleremo di me e di un posto che ho visitato.

Ok. Mi chiamo Claudia e ho 20 e qualcosa in più anni. Il blog non è il mio lavoro, è un hobby e l’evoluzione naturale della mia insana passione per lo scrivere. Mi definisco la Regina del Random perchè sono curiosa e appassionata di così tante cose da non poter definire l’argomento del mio blog. La maggior parte delle volte scrivo di moda e bellezza ma potete anche trovare post sui viaggi, la musica, il cinema, la cucina o il fai da te. Considero il mio blog un’isola felice in cui scrivere e condividere pensieri ed opinioni e dove fare un po’ di chiacchiericcio con altre donzelle.
Ho due lauree in Lingue straniere. La mia lingua madre è l’italiano ma mi sento molto a mio agio ad esprimermi in inglese. Parlo anche spagnolo, un po’ di francese e un pochino d’inglese. 
La mia descrizione Twitter recita “Made in Italy. I love old things, Ancient Egypt, One Republic, Inter and roses. Queen of Randomness” e questo è quanto.
La foto che ho scelto è quella del giorno più bello di una delle mie migliori amiche: il suo matrimonio. L’ho scelta perchè sembra una cartolina degli anni ’50 e invece è una foto di un iPhone del 2015. L’Italia ha alcuni dei migliori paesaggi del mondo. Non si può negare dai. Posto dello scatto: Umbria, Italia.


Se devo scegliere di parlare di un posto che ho visitato, non posso far altro che parlare di New York. Qualcuno dovrebbe avvisarti: quando visiti New York non te ne vuoi più andare. E questo è quello che è successo. Ho passato 5 dei miei 15 giorni negli USA nella Grande Mela (ho scritto un post qui) e lì ho lasciato un pezzo del mio cuore. NY è una giungla d’asfalto, una città che non dorme mai e che ha qualcosa da dare ad ognuno di noi. New York ispira: ad ogni angolo c’è qualcosa di cui meravigliarsi. E le viste, WOW solo WOW. In Italia siamo abituati a viste mozzafiato ma NY ha qualcosa di speciale per me. Mi sentivo così bene a camminare sola per le strade della Grande Mela, mi sentivo a casa. Voglio assolutamente tornarci perchè non se ne ha mai abbastanza.

Se volete salire a bordo della November Blog challenge, seguite le regole e twittatemi i vostri post (@ClaudiaAlready) così che possa leggerli!
