Goodbye Milano

Hope everyone had a really good Christmas!

Early Christmas present!

19 December 2011

So my news that I was excited about? My wonderful boyfriend came and saw me in my last weekend here and brought my Christmas present with me - iPod Touch. I've known I was getting since about October (we've been together since end September). I really love it! 

 A few weeks back when I was in London we found this cute cover in TK Maxx that, he would not let me purchase so he bought it for me. 
The wonderful man himself, this weekend.

I've taken so many photos on it already and downloaded the blogger app, so perhaps you'll see more posts as I can blog on the go! 

L'artigiano at Rho Fiera - part II

This is part two :) 

The last photo is the only photo I have of the European section, was so tired after that. We browsed around quickly and then headed back to mine.

I go home in 5 days!! Also I'm getting an early Christmas present tomorrow - can't wait to show you guys!

L'artigiano at Rho Fiera

14 December 2011

Last Saturday my boyfriend and I went to L'artigiano, just a bit outside of Milano. My flatmate recommended that we go, after excitedly showing me all the meat he had brought from there. He said it wasn't just food there was clothes and other items. My boyfriend and I figured it would be a good idea and something to look around - little did we know we would basically end up getting Christmas gifts from people!

L'artigiano is basically a huge fair with the focus on clothes, food and other stuff (lol no idea what to call it), and was held in an exhibition centre. If you've ever been to Earls Court you'll get the idea of how big it is. It was four huge exhibition rooms, the focus was mainly on Italy, so it was split into different parts like Sicily, Lombardy etc. Then there was Europe attached to it. Italy and Europe took up three rooms and the last was the continents of Africa, Asia and South America. That's the one we visited first and we actually just fell in love and that's were all our gifts were from. 

We bought loads there, ate Tibetan food and then lost all out energy but still went round to Italy and Europe, they weren't as exciting but certainly offered loads of food tasting!!

I have pictures anyway, well half, haven't finished editing the rest with exams going on!! This is the 'countries of the world' which is basically Africa, Asia & South America.

More pictures to come soon. I have two phone interviews tomorrow - strangely I'm quite excited about them as opposed to nervous!!

Winter retreat.

6 December 2011

I decided on this bright ensemble on a night out looking for chinese in Milano.

We found food eventually.
Chinese food in Milano is SO cheap!

This is my 300th post!
Hopefully around February I can start paying full attention to my blog. Milan didn't go as well as I thought it would, it's horrible being along in a country with no money and battling with student finance to get it. That started of a roller coaster of emotions. When I'm back in London, I'll be looking for a placement so I can complete my university year, so I'm assuming I'll be pretty busy until then, so post will be sporadic but I'd just like take that chance to thank people for still reading :) 

Celebratory dinner

5 December 2011

After much much hell in Milano, I've decided I'm coming home.  I was incredibly scared of telling my mum but on Friday I did so - and she wasn't at all upset or angry or disappointed. It was such a relief!
So my boyfriend whisked me off to Carluccio's - it wasn't as nice as the first time we went but was still yum. Anyway I decided to pull together an outfit :)

I once again have exams to deal with.
Uni is such a bore!
