I love to enter in her life and to check how she spend the days with her 2 kids (I wrote as mistake
Amanda is also the kind blogger behind it's the little things, where she really allows you to enter her life on the tiptoe. I am pretty sure you'll love her.

I must say I do not have any kind of affection, at one point I thought I must talk with a nutritionist because I am vegetarian since 15 years right now and I felt like I was bored by the food I had and I lost all the interest into it.
Right now I can't eat nor drink milk and cheese and it is a kind of gluten free diet, it means no pasta (only the one made of spelt and other cereals), no beer, no pizza, no bread, oh I love bread. It has been quite difficult during the first month and now I can have pizza once a week again, but it is the only concession I have (in the last 3 months I have lost 6kg).
Recently it looks like gluten is the poison of the XXI century, how do you feel about that?
Avoiding gluten made me think more and more about the importance of a diet with a lot of variations and in these days I am thinking about a 2weeks diet for winter.
The picture was taken from Taste William-Sonoma.
PS= I am also focusing more and more on Bento boxes, they are so cute! Do you remember the post I made almost a year ago? Check it out here.
The classes I bought are made by Mary Kate McDevitt, she really drives you through materials, technique and the research of nice inspirations.
Here you are the titles of the classes just in case you are a bit curious: The First Steps of Hand-Lettering: Concept to Sketch (Lettering I) and The Final Steps of Hand-Lettering: Color & Texture (Lettering III). I just started but as soon as I'll have a nice project I'll share it with you too!
Mary Kate is also on Etsy if you are looking for a nice Christmas present.

Buru-buru is an italian e-commerce for crafters, they selected me (as well as other 200 makers) and asked me if I wanted to join the community.
I love the idea of an italian craft community, which focus on a new DIY wave!
This is something we are trying to do with Band Loch - in different channels of course - but the goal is the same: build a direct connection between people and independent makers/businesses.
Oh and I am in homepage!
