I probably should have done this post earlier. But it’s never too late, I guess.
My name is Blessing, I’m 23 (24 on the 16th October). I live in the Northern Italy in a beautiful region called Friuli, not really the best known in Italy. I was born in Nigeria and I came here when I was 5, so I pursued my whole education in this country. I’m attending Uni in Udine. I have only a few exams left but ran out of motivation so I’m taking some time for my self trying to figure out what I truly want to do with my life.
I’ve always been passionate about Fashion thanks to my mum. I can remember me at 11 years old borrowing her clothes to go to school… that was quite precocious. I always loved classic, chic and smart casual as a style, so I would say that’s what I identify my self with. But I also love experimenting with different styles and outfits. Dressing is a way to express my personality and also my mood so within a short time I could go from the total black look with a biker jacket, to some chinos with sneakers, to pumps, jumper and coat.
I love cooking and baking sweets. Baking is probably what I like the most, it really satisfies me and it’s a sort of therapy for relaxing and letting stress away. My favourite ingredient is chocolate. I’m a curious girl so I always try to learn new recipes. My favourite dishes as a good nigerian-italian girl are rice and stew and lasagne al ragù.
Another big passion of mine is reading. I started when I was a teen due to a school assignment…It was such a good and involving experience that I never stopped from then. There was a time me and my best would go to the city library and stock up on books and read like 4 books a month… I really miss those days. I’m kinda a reading addict: when I start reading a book I get deeply involved into the story and I stop living my normal life until I finish it. And once I’m done I feel lost so I start another one. It’s a vicious cycle. My favourite books are: The Pillars of the Earth, The Inheritance Cycle, The Count of Monte Cristo, Memoirs of a Geisha, Shogun.
I also enjoy watching netflix documentaries and tv series (Vikings, Marco Polo, Breaking bad). But my favorite of all times is Game of Thrones: “Winter is coming!”
I love travelling and photography. I’m an adventurous girl, exploring and visiting new places, meeting people from other places are the best thing for me. My favourite places to visit are natural environments and cities with history and charm. For now I’ve been to France, Sweden, Amsterdam, Lubiana, Austria (several times), and seen a lot in Italy too. Photography is the best way to imprint and relive memories. I use a Nikon d3200 but I’m planning to switch to something more professional.
Hope you enjoyed this post.
