Tracee Ellis Ross

I used to write beauty posts about women I like and the makeup they wore and I thought it would be cool to bring it back. I wrote about Emma Watson, Sarah Hyland, Emilia Clarke, Lily James, Kerry Washington, Sophie Turner

As I said back then, these are women I like, women I admire and women who wear fabulous makeup.

And the amazing person I want to talk about today is Tracee Ellis Ross.

She stars in ABC’s “Black-ish” and she is amazing. She is such a poweful, unapologetic and empowering woman and she is so fashionable!

I love her. She has confidence, a gorgeous smile and she’s not afraid to express her opinion.

Tracee has amazing lips and she often accentuates them with a bright lipstick. And she pulls it off like nobody else does.

Personally, I got inspired by her: eyebrown, a barely-there super soft shimmer eyeshadow on the lid, mascara and then a pop of colour on the lips.

It’s beautiful.

At times she also lines her eyes with a black eyeliner and it makes the whole look seem more time consuming and thought out.

I’ve noticed red is her preferred colour but she wore  beautiful neon pink on Stephen Colbert’s “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” and I fell in love with it. I wore my own bright pink for three straight days.

She wears different shades of red like in this picture, but usually it’s always a bright classic red.

GORGEOUS.

I love it.

And of course I love her. She has such a fun and bubbly personality. I recommend checking out her interviews. She is adorable.

AND this year she made her directorial debut on Black-ish! She directed the first episode of the tetralogy at the end of season 4!

New Girl – s07 ep 01 – “About Three Years Later” – Review

I really wanted to watch the new episode of “New Girl”: I woke up early to download the episode and put it on my mom’s iPad.
And it didn’t work.
So I plugged in my phone and tried with that.
It didn’t work either.
So I left my house at 8:30 in the morning, episode-less.
I had an hour of train ride and I really wanted to see it!! I’ve been using the show to keep me company while I study and I’ve grown very attached to it. I am very sad this is its last season.


It’s little Ruth’s 3rd birthday and Cece and Schmidt try to throw her a feminist party with feminist icons themed drinks and a panel for any questions these little kids mix have.
It’s ridiculous. But not as stupid as Schmidt’s moustache. With its own personal comb.2018-04-11 (1).png

Nick and Jess have returned from their European book tour and they are perfectly happy with their lives: they are still living in the loft and their relationship is great.

At the party, they meet again Russell, Jess’ ex boyfriend and the only man both her and Nick have loved.
There is a whole mess, she lies about being engaged to Nick. Unbeknownst to Jess, Nick is planning to propose. That night.
Last but not least, Winston and Aly are married and she is 7 months pregnant! And she hates it!

Overall, the episode was great! I loved the familiarity of the character, even if their lives are not the same as they used to be.

One thing that really really really really annoyed me was the “blessing” situation. Learn a lesson from one of the two men I would ever marry, Jake Peralta.

Why are people so obsessed with asking the father permission to marry his daughter?!? WHY?!?
Please. Can we stop doing this?!? It drives me fucking crazy.
I hate it. With all my heart.


Other than that, I’m really looking forward to the next episode.

New Girl Season 7!!!!

I can’t believe New Girl is finally back!

I’ve been sporadically watching the show since its late 3rd season (?) and although I lost interest along the way, it’s still a nice and familiar comedy to go back to.

I’ve been using it while studying. I need to have background noise and it’s perfect.

I was sad when they said they weren’t sure if the show was going to be renewed for a 7th season and to be fair, it would have been a great ending anyway.

Nonetheless, I am thrilled they brought it back.

Season 7 picks up roughly 3 years after the events in the previous season: Schmidt and Cece have a daughter called Ruth, Winston and Aly got married and she is currently expecting a baby and Nick and Jess have just come back from the european tour for “The Pepperwood’s Chronicles”.

I am really excited to see what they are up to, how they have changed and say goodbye to these characters.

Risultati immagini per new girl season 7 posterI absolutely can’t wait.

I also hope they’ll bring back some of the most important guest stars and recurring characters like Coach, Principal Foster, Ryan Geauxinue, Robby, Doctor Sam…

It’s going to be so sad leaving Jess, Nick, Winston, Cece and Schmidt…

8 more episodes of a great comedy.

Let’s go!

 

New Girl airs Tuesdays at 9.30/8.30c on Fox.

I jinxed it.

This has been a difficult month. Truly difficult.

In my last life update, I was positive. Optimistic. Well, it all went down the toilette on November 1st.

The irony.

A little bit of background story…. In Italy, November 1st is a national holiday. It’s the day when, if you’re christian, you celebrate the gestures and sacrifices Saints made throughout the history of Christianity. (Which is sort of funny because November 2nd is the day in which we remember the people who died, we go to the cemetery to visit them and we pay our respects).

Aside from this lesson in Christian culture (that I’m not really a fan of), I was supposed to take my granddad to the city centre. He is 87 and they revoked his driving license. I got mine so I could help out and so at 9.45AM I was ready to pick him up.

Long story short, a lady hit me with her car 50 meters after I dropped him off. She didn’t stop at the STOP sign and hit me on my left side.

MY WORST NIGHTMARE.

I’ve talked about my fear of driving extensively on this blog. A car accident was the main thing I was terrified about. The worst possible scenario that could have happened did. We weren’t hurt. Not even a little bit. We were both going so slow. I was at 25 km/h, she was even slower. But it did happen. And this completely threw me off.

I had started going to Uni and for two weeks, I was paralyzed at home, scared of my own shadow. I cried for 3 days straight. Every time someone brought up the word “car”, I would just freeze and my eyes would water.

So, yeah. My positive blog entry jinxed me.

Three days ago, we brought the car back home. It was in the shop for a month and the insurance company took care of everything. And yet, I’m still terrified. I hate it so much. I’m a responsible driver. I go slow, I stop at every sign, I don’t go over the limit. NEVER. But every time I see a car coming from my left or right side, I flinch.

My mom has been incredibly supportive. When I broke down sobbing after we did the accident report with the lady, she said she was so sorry and she was hurting for me because she knew how scared I was of driving. She says that now I’ve been “baptized” and that everything from now on, it’s going to go smoothly. Ever the pessimist that I am, I don’t really believe her.

It was just back luck. In italy, we call it “sfiga”.

Our family friend had the best response. His wife bumped the car against a lamp pole a couple of months before and he said: “I wish it would have happened to me, so the insurance would fix it and I wouldn’t have to pay it myself.”

It was a dumb joke that I desperately needed. So thanks, V.

It took me a month to be semi-okay with this. But since today, I went and took my granddad to the city centre for his bar chats with his friends (and nothing happened), I wanted to get it out of my chest.

I’m off now. I have to go and bring him back home.

(as I was writing this, my mom said my uncle is going to take him home. I so relieved you can’t even imagine it.)
