Secret Garden Artist's Edition by Johanna Basford

Adult colouring books are becoming more popular every day. Is that because engaging in such activity relaxes us? Sure, but I also think they are a real helper for the spirit. We all have not particularly bright days so, instead of making them worse with our dark mood, why don't add some colour and let it lighten the day?

The Sims 4: Get Together

I'm a huge The Sims fan and have been playing the game since the beginning. I especially love expansions so, when Get Together was released, I looked forward to when I'd be able to buy it. 

As it says on TheSims.com website, "Create and join Clubs with distinct interests, personalities, and styles where you can set the rules, define their look, and customize their hangouts. Get together with other Sims for exciting group activities and live it up in the beautiful new World of Windenburg!" and boy, if it's true!

The Rose of Versailles: the most inspirational female anime/manga character - Kettle Article

I grew up reading manga and watching lots of anime, The Rose of Versailles has always been one of my favourites and I was sure (until a few months ago) that it was known by many in different countries. Yet, last summer the Kettle editors were pleased to have my article published about the subject because it seemed my precious Lady Oscar was not well known as I thought . . . So, here's the article I wrote on August 26th, 2015. I'd be curious to now how many of you guys are already familiar with it and, those who are not, if you now would like to either read the manga or watch the anime. Or, why not, do both!

Very British Problems? Oh dear!

Not everyone knows me, so let me tell you a little bit about myself. I am Italian—born and raised—but English has always been part of my life. I had a very strict upbringing, scholarly speaking, and there are people who still get surprised when I tell them that my love affair with this beautiful language began when I was six years old. I know, right?

My goals for 2016

I'm usually not one who makes New Year resolutions, and that is for two reasons: one, I never follow through and two, they're always the same... This year I'll lose weight, I'll go to the gym, I'll finish that novel I started three years ago... Come on, aren't we tired of saying things that deep deep down we know we will never do?
