First of all, welcome!

As some of you who have been following me on Instagram already know, my name is Sandra and I am a Milan-based fashion lover.
This blog, which is to be my virtual home that I will share with readers all around the world, is the result of my own curiosity towards style, what defines it and how my own personality and wishes fit into the contemporary meaning of “fashionable”.

Lady Violante is what my friends call me, a fun nickname that simply stuck and has contributed to the idea of sharing my lifestyle, choices and all the fun stuff I get across with all those who will follow me!

If you are here and reading my “welcome” words, you like fashion / beauty / creativity, combined or each of them on their own. Every single day I get endless inspiration from my home city: Milan is special and will be heavily featured in my blog. It has been my home for over a decade now and never ceases to amaze me. I am also happy to say that here I have met lots of brilliant, creative people who have first encouraged me to break the limits of not fitting into the classical “fashion mould”, bringing my permanently smiling self out of my privacy, opening my life to strangers who share my interests and therefore opening myself to a world of possibilities.  To them, and you know who you are, I say “thank you” and “I love you”.

This is not going to be a classic fashion / luxury lifestyle blog; it will bring lots of pictures of a woman who is not a model, who does not work in fashion, but sure loves to play with it without ever losing her own identity. It will also provide my points of view, my favorite things, places, all the brilliant people I am lucky to meet and all the sparkly, lively things I get to see by living in an antique city with a modern soul, and also while I travel the world with eyes wide open.

Everyone is welcome to comment, encourage, share, or simply say hello, whether it is through the comments section or by emailing me directly.

The wait is over, it is time for a new beginning, and I’ll be happy to share it with you!

    Do you’ve video or media enabled website much like the You – Tube videos then you
    can certainly choose dedicated server. The result is that your internet site will never
    be subjected to any threats because in the other sites for the
    server. So, whether you plan to create an internet site yourself,
    or to rely on someone else to acheive it for you, it’s good to
    acquire basic knowledge concerning the requirements of setting up
    and operational website.

    Upcoming New Releases: Going with the identical concept above, in case you haave an associate in radio
    or are only reakly ahead with the ccurve musically, you can build a site that
    lists and describes the upcoming new album releases. Anyone can compose and come up with any topic, from
    hobbies to political vies. Wouldd your hard work start a whole new perspective
    or wouldn’t itt just invoke a ‘what’s new’ response.

    I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something
    to valuable to contribute to the conversation. Usually it’s
    caused by the passion displayed in the article I looked at.
    And after this post The beginning. – Lady
    Violante. I was actually moved enough to drop a thought 😉 I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.
    Is it just me or does it seem like some of these remarks look as if they are written by brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are posting at other sites, I
    would like to keep up with everything new you have to post.
    Would you make a list every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
