Hello, December!


Welcome back to my Fashion Guide…

It’s been a while…

Life has been so busy in the past few months that I haven’t had the chance to write as much as I would love to…

I’ve missed it…

This week I’ve decided to write about one of the best trends this winter

The Statement Ankle Boot

IMG_1130-1
The Ankle Boot

Everywhere we look this winter, it’s all about ankle boots…to be honest, this one piece it’s here to stay and it’s somehow becoming a classic:)

The black suede will always be my favourite!

…flat or heels, choose the ones that work for you.

Personally, I go for block heels because it can be matched with jeans for a more relaxed look or with a dress/skirt for a going out style.

But if that’s not your trend, you can always go for buckle-boots, riding style…no matter what the fashion tells you, choose the piece that works for you.

Winter cosy

…and never forget to accessories:)

I have three reasons why I love winter time:

  • New Boots
  • A beautiful Coat
  • Warm and cosy accessories

A well coordinated accessory can do wonders for your look…might that be mittens, a hat or your knitted long scarf!

So…what will be your Winter Cosy?

 

Your Fashion Girl,

Julia

‘Hello Blogging 101’


We always need a challenge, a reason to step forward and get to know the best version of ourselves.

This month I am taking part in Blogging 101 and Photo 101…I am excited of learning new things but most of all I am eager to grow this amazing family of bloggers and discover brand new worlds:)

First assignment of Blogging 101 – “Introduce Yourself to the World”

Most of you know me really well already but I might still have a couple of things to pull out of my invisible hat:)

SONY DSC

This is me…

Your author who, just recently, felt comfortable in saying it out loud that she is a writer and that maybe someday she will have the honour to sign a book with her name on the cover:)

But until then…

I am a fashionista…I love the catwalk, the art and design and I’ve created this blog as the first step in this amazing journey of self discovery. I am in love with photography and every picture I take creates a whole new world that feeds my imagination:)

My favourite colour is Red…

It’s not just a colour to me…it’s a state of mind, “a mirror to my soul”, if you want…

Red is passion, creativity and love…but it’s also the colour of blood, fire and danger!

So here I am, caught in the middle and finding the balance quite beautiful and terribly intoxicating…

My blog it’s my own way of loving life as it is, constantly learning, dreaming and pursuing happiness!

I love baking…

The luxurious taste of dark chocolate and salty caramel…I indulge myself in sweet temptation every time I open the door to the land of endless desserts:)

Also, I am not a stranger to savoury and the beautiful flavour of herbs and spices…

Did I make you wonder? If I did, join me in my little secret ‘Kitchen Corner’ every week and discover what is that I call scrumptiously tasty!

Movie adoration…

I grew up with these amazing stories on the big screen that opened up the world of fantasy and fable but also created a fantastic collection of movies…which I am sharing with you in the hopes that it might bring to life the same emotions I’ve lived while watching them:)

Follow my short reviews that are mostly teasing my readers to go out and watch these movies:)

A little secret

I am completely, irreversibly, entirely, utterly, absolutely in love…

My Red World

Thank you for joining me on this journey and I hope that together we can go out there and paint the town red!

Paint the town red!

Love,

Julia

The past month was an absolute rush, taking Writing 101 Challenge was one of the best things I could have done!

I am so proud to say that this week I’ve been nominated three times for a Liebster Award and I couldn’t be more grateful:) I want to honour all three bloggers that were kind enough to nominate me, so I will dedicate one post for each of them and answer all of their questions! …here it goes, proud to present Take One on the Liebster Journey:)

So, shall we start?:)

Mary’s questions…and my own creative way of answering:)

Hope you will enjoy this!

1. Why did you started this blog?

cropped-cropped-img_55411.jpg My Red Page was born from a very old wish I had years ago but never seemed to be at the right time to start…share a bit of my soul with the world. For about 10 years I’ve stopped writing, not because I didn’t want to anymore but because I didn’t trust myself that I could do it. Writing for yourself it’s ok, but I wanted more, maybe it was outside validation or just to see with my own eyes that I can…don’t really know! It was the best decision I’ve taken in a while, because I love it, I feel inspired and I know I can inspire others.

2. Who inspires you?

dsc__192_Fotor Everything around me is inspiration but there is one person that gives me the strength I need to always go further, be better, do more and always give back and that is The One and Only, the Love of my life!

3. Where do you see yourself in ten years time?

2015-05-03 17.17.39 In ten years I see myself growing my family, loving life even more and hopefully have a published book:)

4. What book are you reading right now?

2015-04-23 09.37.57-1 I am almost done reading ” The Valkyries” by Paulo Coelho, an amazing book about the search of ones destiny.

5. What is your all time favourite movie?

Screen Shot 2015-02-18 at 23.30.16 ‘La vita e bella’, by Roberto Benigni, a beautiful story about the joy for living in the most terrible times in the world’s history.

6. If you could choose anywhere in the world, where would you choose to live and why?

 DSC02670 I’ve always loved the sea, but most of all I love the sun…so anywhere that has both all year long:)))

7. Do you speak any foreign languages?

Screen Shot 2015-05-03 at 18.55.00 My love for foreign languages is endless, but my ability to learn them stopped at three: italian, spanish and french! To be honest the one I own completely is Italian and it’s always been music to my ears!

8. Do you have any hidden talents?

Fashionable!

I wouldn’t say it’s hidden, it was a surprise to me but recently I’ve discovered that I enjoy fashion photography, I might say that I am getting pretty good at it…well, I let you be the judge of that! :)))))

9. What career would you choose if you had a free choice?

Be creative

I would definitely be a fashion columnist…or just a columnist! I’ve always wanted to do this but life had other plans for me:) I love what I do now because I am good at it, but I never gave up a tiny dream I’ve once had! I think this blog might be a reflection of that dream.

10. What is your favourite type of music?

2015-04-08 22.00.03-1 I love any music that I can dance to…what can I say, very easy choice here:)

11. What’s your favourite type of food?

IMG_3016 I think the picture just speaks for itself:) I love desserts, to make them and to enjoy them! I love cooking in general, healthy cooking but I cannot resist the sweet temptation of sugar:)))

Now it’s my turn to nominate 11 lovely bloggers who deserve this award even more than I do:
