La Mafia Uccide Solo D’Estate

Yes, it's an article about an italian TV program. There is usually (almost) never anything worth mentioning in italian television, but this series is a wonderful exception. The rough translation of the title would be "The Mafia only kills during the summer". Set in 1979, it revolves around a family who lives in Palermo (Sicily). [...]

“Yes Please” by Amy Poehler

I don't usually read books written by celebrities: they are boring, filled with stories and anecdotes I couldn't care less about and almost every time there is a ghost writer involved.

Being Confindent

I have been wearing makeup for about 3-4 years... Seriously wearing it, not just mascara, eyeliner and the wrong shade of foundation.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

In August I had a three day break from studying: the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and the 15th, which in Italy is a holiday called "Ferragosto". Don't know what it means actually. I'll google it later. Since I had this lovely break I though I could catch up on season 5 of Breaking Bad and [...]
