WHO'S BEHIND THE SCREEN...




Hello everyone,

I thought I'd open this 'About Me' section so if there are any curious people it'd be easier to know a little more about the person behind this blog. 

My name is Kristina and I am 21 years old gal originally from Italy who now lives in England. I'm currently studying Fashion Journalism in University and I decided to start a blog because I love writing about makeup and fashion! Very unoriginal answer, I know

Truth is, now that I have a few readers I can kind of justify most of my purchases, something I'm sure my mum is SO happy about... (catch the sarcasm?). Being a university student also means I'm basically broke all the time so you can see how the two things clash. "Broke with expensive taste" definitely sums me up. Anyone feels like buying me a Versace bag? Donations accepted. 

As much as I would like to brag about a party-life and number of broken high heels, I'm more of an introvert and my standard friday night involves tea, cosy socks and Netflix. I do hit the pub for catch-ups and I'm a regular at venues where my favourite bands play.

I have a close few number of friends which I see regularly outside of university and a lovely boyfriend who's my best friend. I don't say much online about any of the people in my life because I'd like to keep that off the internet. It is private after all. I do however appreciate when I see other individuals share so much of their private things online, like daily vloggers etc. It's very brave plus we're all nosey.
