Getting a Tan

I'm alive! I'm sorry for the lack of post last week, but apparently my blog didn't want me anymore and I wasn't able to log in until now...
Oh well, I'm back and I'll try to post everyday from now!
The Summer is finally, definitely here (and the new camera too, the fab little jewel...that still need a tripod though) and I'm ready for the first one of my Summer 2008 missions: to get a tan!

I believe in destiny and I always loved Summer, this season full of promises and possibilities and this year, despite my pale pale skin I decided I would go for a holiday skin. Living by the sea, I learnt how bad people can look at your milky legs during the hot season... I like the sun, I'm not (at least not anymore) a big fan of the dark-gothic look for myself and I'd love to get a light tan but as I wrote above, it's really a mission cause my skin seems to reject sun...I usually don't get bad burnings (I always use high protection moistures, by the way, I'm not crazy, I know the importance of skin protection from UVA/UVB!), but I usually don't get that nice light cookie color as well...

So now that the sun is high and bright in the sky, I decided to live on the beach!
I'm living in shorts, caftans, bikinis and swimsuits: my wardrobe and my beautycase are totally unusual for me!

For my - hopefully not impossible - mission, I decided despite all the disappointment of the last years, I don't have to be lazy and for seven days, continuously, from yesterday to Saturday I'll conquer the beach. Just to start. Crossing fingers this year I'll have some results...
I'll keep you posted!

For now, I leave you with some holiday outfits ideas from the special issue of Elle Italy, Beauty & The Beach. Click on the pictures to see the details ;-)

uhhh, mi piace rio de janeiro...anche se andare in vacanza là non è tra le mie priorità... a proposito, non esagerare eh con l'abbronzatura...dai...ehm..sennò diventa un po' tamarra come cosa!

ho finalmente postato le foto dei miei rotondieneri occhiali, come ti avevo promesso, con tanto di link al tuo blog. spero non sia una cosa brutta!
buona spiaggia!
