Happy 2nd birthday The Blonde Salad!

Two years ago, after publishing for a couple of years my looks on Flickr, I decided It was the right time to start a new adventure and helped from Richi who was in Chicago for an internship at the time and who helped me with the first template, I opened The Blonde Salad. Mine was at the time one of the only italian personal-style blogs and, thanks to people talking to other people about it and thanks to the users who already knew me from Flickr, the blog immediately caught the attention of the media, bringing me in the fashion market with my first job with Benetton, then with my first interviews on magazines and newspapers and then with all the success I could have never thought achieving just sharing my passions and looks on the web.
Two years later after that 12th October 2009 I can say I lived some unforgettable experiences, that I would have never lived If I didn’t decide to share my passions on the web, If I didn’t decide to take a risk (because there are travels, collaborations, jobs and satisfactions but also critics of course), my life would be totally different right now.
Dream and believe in your wishes until the end, do the best of you to make them become true and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.. Think how my life would be different if, on that 12th October, I didn’t open this blog. It’s worth risking, isn’t it?
Thanks to all of you for these 730 days, 13 hours, 50 minutes and 24 seconds together..
Happy second anniversary The Blonde Salad!

Due anni fa, dopo aver pubblicato per un paio d’anni i miei look su Flickr, ho deciso che era il tempo di iniziare una nuova avventura e, aiutata da Richi che al momento era a Chicago per uno stage universitario e che mi ha aiutato con il template iniziale, ho aperto The Blonde Salad. Il mio era, ai tempi, uno dei pochi blog di personal style italiani e, grazie al passaparola e agli utenti che già mi conoscevano da flickr, il blog ha subito ottenuto molto visibilità, tanto da catapultarmi inaspettatamente nel mondo della moda con i primi lavori per Benetton, a cui sono seguite le prime interviste su magazine e quotidiani, e tutto il successo che mai avrei potuto pensare di ottenere semplicemente condividendo le mie passioni e i miei look sul web.
Ora sono passati 2 anni da quel 12 Ottobre 2009: ho vissuto delle esperienze indimenticabili, che mai mi sarebbero capitate se non avessi deciso di coltivare le mie passioni e condividerle sul web, se non avessi deciso di rischiare (perchè naturalmente, oltre a viaggi, collaborazioni, lavori e soddisfazioni ci sono anche le critiche) la mia vita sarebbe totalmente diversa.
Sognate e credete nei vostri desideri fino in fondo, impegnatevi con tutti voi stessi per realizzarli e non abbiate paura di sbagliare… Pensate a come sarebbe stato tutto diverso per me se, quel 12 Ottobre, non avessi aperto questo blog. Vale la pena rischiare no?
Grazie a tutti voi per questi 730 giorni 13 ore 50 minuti 24 secondi che avete passato insieme a me…
Buon secondo compleanno The Blonde Salad!
