Update – Life. Italy. New opportunities.

passionshake10It’s been a long day guys, a long week and a long month looking at the amount of sleep I’m getting recently but I couldn’t be happier! I mean do we really need to sleep? As I told you before, things are going quite well for me so I think it’s time to share what I am up to in the land of bella Italia. I have arrived here over a month ago, jobless and quite unsure about the future. I do get anxious more often than most of us, which is probably not normal, but I never claimed to be normal, so no surprise here!

Anyway, the weird feelings didn’t stick for too long, as I got busy very quickly. You might remember the story of my property styling project (if not you can read about it here). It happened kind of by accident, went quite well and got me my first interior job. Got what? Yes you heard me, a job! Which in fact is very much in progress already. If you follow me on instagram or facebook you might have seen some of the photos I’m going to share today, but let me tell you once again what is going on. I will be styling a little home tour of a new apartment building. It’s still under construction but soon to be finished. I really, really can’t belive it myself but it is true! And it is so much more awesome that I could ever imagine! Well most of it. My time management and orientation leaves much to be desired as it is my ‘first time’, in a new country and I probably waste some time on things that don’t require attention, but I have noticed some progress. I finally know where to find stuff and I learned all the italian interior vocabulary so I can communicate! Ok that’s a lie, I still drag my boyfriend with me when I need something that requires a proper conversation (thankfully most of the places have a foreigner friendly digital tills, where I can read the total price) Erm….scusi ma quanto costa questa sedia? haha I told you I’m making progress!

Can you belive that these cheerful fabrics are used to protect the floor during renovation? Only in Italy!

So my days are all about buying props, renting props and then I stocking props in our home. You really DON”T want to see how it looks (and don’t worry I won’t be showing you – but think of it as a TETRIS game. Yep exactly that!) In other words I am getting ready for the big days ahead, when the building is ready for me to enter and start styling (which is going to be very soon!) I really can’t wait but at the same time, there is so much to do, and think about, that I basically don’t sleep, and when I do – guess what I am dreaming about?

Below you can see a few photos I’ve taken since we arrived so you can get the feeling of what I am doing.

This is what I call – shop til you drop, and it was just the first round!

Spotted in the jungle – a massive jungle-shop.

Second round. And more to come.

And a little bit of cactus love.

All in all it’s a wonderful experience which involves intense level of creativity but isn’t it what we all love?

Apart from my interior adventures, I am getting ready to go to Amsterdam this Friday for Meet the blogger conference, where  I will be presenting my blog at the visual stage. Yep, that’s another amazing project to add to the list! I really hope to see you there!

And now back to work. Have a great evening!
