Sono Foodie, Flirty Foodie. Inviata speciale al evento “Pure tu vuoi fare lo Chef?”. Scherzi a parte sono andata ad un evento sulla ristorazione circa un mese fa.

Via Brera sign

To say this past year was emotionally and physically trying would be kind of an understatement. Fortunately, in the process, I’ve learnt a tremendous amount of things, including how important it is to sit back, relax, and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Yes.
