Let’s get started:)

Here are Romina’s questions!

1. Hi! What’s your favourite fruit?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 Hello:) I would say that my favourite fruit is cherry…but I love fruits in general, I don’t think I dislike any of them!

2. Do you speak a language other than English? (If yes, what language?)

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 Yes, I speak italian, french and spanish:)

3. Where would you go if you could live in another country for the rest of your life?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 I would live in the amazing forever green cradle of Tuscany!

4. What do you think is your spirit animal?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 I’ve never thought of that…I guess it might be the jaguar:), just because I love them but I am not sure if I identify with its behaviour completely!

5. What’s your favourite exercise/ fitness routine?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 I don’t have a favourite one, just because I like variety:) I found that once the body gets used to a certain routine, the effect of it, drops really fast, so I like to change my fitness routine as often as I can!

6. Have you ever tried any vegan recipes (no meat, no dairy/milk, no eggs) of your favourite food?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 Not that I can remember, but I do give up all these ingredients and become a vegan for six weeks every year.

7. What city did you grow up in?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 I like to leave a bit of mystery when it comes to write about myself:) I would say one thing about the place I’ve grew up in…’you could smell the salt in the air, feel the sand between your toes and hide under the trees from the hot sunshine’.

8. If aliens landed on Earth, would you rather stay and hide from them or take an unknown adventure into outer space away from the planet?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 Interesting question…as much as I love discovering the unknown and embark onto an adventure, I love Earth to much to leave:)

9. What’s your favourite dessert / sweets?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 It has to be triple chocolate cake with wild berries:)

10. If you had the chance to change one big thing in the world, what would you change?

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 23.37.36 This is a hard one:( I would definitely try and raise more awareness around the exploitation of our environment and the devastation that it could cause. I think we tend to forget that everything around us can survive without us but we cannot survive without it!

‘The book of Eli’


“God is good, isn’t He? 

Screen Shot 2015-05-23 at 15.46.05

Director: Albert Hughes, Allen Hughes

Writer: Gary Whitta

Lead actors: Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis, Ray Stevenson

2010, Action, Adventure, Drama

First thing I would say about this movie is…’it’s not for everyone’!

This is not because of the story, it is mainly because of the visual effects, some harsh and violent scenes, which are not meant for the faint-hearted!

The story starts like so many others before and after…many years after the war, which turned earth into nothing…a lifeless space where only the worst has survived.

 ‘The book of Eli’ is about sacrifice, enduring the pain for believing in something bigger than yourself, following a higher purpose and protecting the futures of many.

Most of the reviews I’ve read, call this movie, a post-apocalyptic tale – in some ways it is a tale…I would also say that it is a story about hope and the commitment to save the human soul from becoming ephemeral. As we all know, evil cannot exist without pure good, but virtue is sometimes hard to find and extremely difficult to keep alive.

Eli is a lone warrior who takes upon himself to protect and save a sacred book that holds the secret of humanity’s existence and preservation. His nemesis who knows the book’s power wants to take it for himself. The story line brings out the two characters in a constant battle for the most sacred object that can change the humankind’s future.

It’s quit amazing how during the movie, we never actually see what is the content of the book but somehow we become aware of what it could be… I won’t say it here, I will let you uncover that:)

As life proves us each day that we were not created to live and fight on our own…Eli has a companion along his journey…Solara, who does not know the true power of Eli’s cargo but against all odds decides to risk her life to protect it and at the same time save her own.

As I’ve watched this movie, I’ve thought that everything is very predictable but I was so wrong…Eli’s secret will be kept until the end of the movie…and believe me, you will want to discover it!

If you want your heart to race a bit…if you want to see a different side of Faith…if you think you’ve seen it all…think again:), open your mind and let the adventure join you!

One of my favourite lines and something we should all live by:

“Do for others more than you do for yourself”

Enjoy your weekend movie:)
