Holiday Break

Hello lovely readers!

This is just a short message to inform you that for the next couple of weeks we'll be away in Italy to visit our families. We rarely see them so it's really good for us to take this break before the Christmas holidays!

We're plotting exciting things for A Thing for Life so, in the meantime, feel free to check out our posts (if you missed them), let us know your opinion in the comments, and remember that you can always keep up with what's going on by following us on social media, which you find on the right sidebar over here --->

See you soon! :)

Special delivery: books I designed the covers for!

This month I received a very precious package from an Aussie client of mine and, let me tell you, it got me a bit emotional . . . When you can touch books you created the covers for with your own hands and read your name on them, you feel excited, amazing and indescribably happy!

Outfit Showcase: Christmas Party

Welcome to Outfit Showcase! In this feature I'll show you outfits based on a particular theme or occasion. I'll be attending a work Christmas party in December and, since I've never been to one before, I thought I'd ask you guys advice on what to wear. It's a fancy evening, so no casual wear allowed. In the meantime, though, while I am looking for dresses and find something I could like enough on myself, I decided to share three outfits that I think would be good for a Christmas party.

The Magic of the Christmas Lights

This past Saturday the Christmas lights have been switched on here in Peterborough! I've been attending the event every single year since I moved in 2012 because, let's face it, who doesn't love this holiday and gets all warmed up when looking at the beautiful decorations all around?

Childhood Memories

Childhood memories are what make us who we are and, whether they are good or bad, they are something that will stay with us forever.

Oaklands Manor Trilogy Book Trailer

For those who still don't know, I'm also a video editor and one who truly loves her job. Every time a client contacts me asking for a project, I get thrilled and my creativity immediately starts running wild! (when doesn't it, though?) I've recently been hired by a great author to create the book trailer for her trilogy, and now we're here to show it to you . . . Ready?

Social Media Fever

Hello,

My name is Francesca and I am a social media addicted. *Hello, Francesca*
I know, this kinda sounds like one of those AA meetings, but I dare you to say deep down you don't feel the same way. There has been a huge boom of social media awareness in the past few years and, whether we like it or not, we will end up getting sucked into its vortex. It's inevitable.

What are we watching on TV?

Hands up who loves TV series! Someone can count them on one hand and others might be obsessed with hundreds of them but, no matter the number, we all agree over the fact they know how to keep us entertained.

Pierre the Maze Detective by Hiro Kamigaki and IC4DESIGN

Halloween may be over, but that doesn't mean there's a shortage of fun activities to pick from! I was curious about this because it's something I've never done before—unless I include the activities I did when I was little, but that is not the point because I am talking about grown ups—and it looked like something I could really enjoy. 
So, without further ado, let me introduce to you... Pierre the Maze Detective!

Celebration of the Name Day

Saint Silvia (c. 515 - c. 592) was the mother of St. Gregory the Great and her name was inserted under November 3rd in the Roman Martyrology by Pope Clement VIII. So tomorrow is a celebration day for me! I don't know how this plays in your own Country, but I can surely tell you name days are kind of a big deal in Italy.
