15 things about me to get to know me better

Everybody has strengths and weaknesses and everybody has something that makes him or her special and that you absolutely have to know. Here are some facts about me, so you can get to know me better.

  1. BELLA ITALIA – Did you know that I am half Italian?
    Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my mother is italian? Maybe… Maybe not! I love the country for many reasons. I adore the Italian kitchen, the beaches, the italian hospitality, the language and of course the italian culture and people. Sicily is where my family is from. Have you ever been to Sicily? Definitely worth a trip – trust and believe me.
  1. My zodiac sign? Pisces!
    Pisces personalities are known for their sensitivity and empathy. They can pick up other people’s feelings and they’ll do whatever they can to make sure the people around them are happy. Pisces are artistic and use their vivid imaginations to think up new ideas and projects. What is your zodiac sign? Can you relate with yours?
  1. I strive for perfection
    Fear of failure, highly critical, unrealistic standards, focussed on results and depressed by unmet goals… Yup, also me! Some of the bad aspects of being a perfectionist. I am still in the progress of accepting that there is no such thing as perfection. I learned with the years that I need to strive for progress and not perfection, to try to be the best version of myself and beat my last best every day. Do you want to know more about this topic and my journey?   

– You can find perfection only in the perfect imperfection! L.B.

  1. My gut is my best friend
    If you know, you just know! Many people in my life have ideas of what is best for me. It starts with my family and friends and ends at my workplace. Most of the time these ideas are held with good intentions – I am certain of that. But I decide most of the time to put aside all external opinions and listen instead to my own intuition. It always knows what is best for me and has never disappointed me. If you did not already read my first blog post about how I met Ryan, do it now. My intuition played a very big role!
  1. Series junkie alerts!
    I don’t watch an episode or two – NO, that’s amateur level. I have the superpower to watch an entire season in less than three days. I take the matter of spoilers seriously and hate mid-season breaks. They make me go crazy! I easily get attached to characters I relate to. You can imagine how devastated I am when they die or how hard I hit rock bottom everytime a series comes to an end. And.. oh.. If you don’t know who John Snow is, we can’t be friends.
    Some of my favorite TV shows: Game of Thrones, Dark, Vikings and Jane the Virgin.
  1. Cold Coffee
    I love hot coffee and would never say no to an espresso. However, I will always end up forgetting my cup of coffee and have to drink it cold. Ugh.. Any ideas on how to keep coffee hot?
  1. Me resentful? Maybe sometimes but never for too long!
    For me resentfulness is a self-destructive and toxic feeling. There is nothing positive about holding on to something or someone that makes me feel sad or angry. Do yourself a favor and separate you from people that are not good for you and the negative feelings you associate with them. Set yourself free – you will not regret it. 
  1. Interaction Design and Social Media
    I am becoming an interaction designer with the aim of earning my living while pursuing my passion. Photography, videography, online marketing and social media is where I feel home. I love my job and am looking forward to the great and interesting projects waiting for me. Today I am already consulting companies with their start ups and helping them with online marketing and social media. I also work as a Mentor for individuals and am always happy to help. Here you can find more information about all the services I provide. Let’s talk if you are interested and stay tuned. There is much more to come!
  1. My family is my source of happiness
    My family is my home, my strength, my weakness, my everything and greatest gift! I definitely am a family person and really do enjoy the time I can spend with them. My Mum is just fantastic. It is hard to find the right words to explain what role she plays in my life. She went against everything and everybody, choosed the most difficult way and was ready to face all the obstacles life and society put in her way just to love and protect me. If you want to know more about my family and our story –  just let me know.
  1. Bad habit No 2 – Indecisiveness!
    Now you know that I am a perfectionist. What comes along with it, is for instant the fact that I am not very good at making decisions. It starts with simple questions like what am I going to wear? Which movie do I want to watch? What do I want to eat in a restaurant? And ends with difficult live decisions regarding my career, friends and family.
  1. Instagram – Let’s share nothing but love and positivity
    IG provides an amazing platform to be creative and interact with a lot of people around the world. I can find a lot of inspiration and satisfaction in fulfilling myself as an artist and content creator. But how did it all begin? It all started with sharing my pole dance passion with the world and finally my journey as a world traveler. My community began to grow every single day. At the beginning, as with many things in life, it was not easy for me! Family and friends were not very supportive and did not understand why becoming “an influencer” was so important to me. But lovely people, I did it my way! Today I am so grateful for the unique and amazing community we became, to inspire people every day, the infinite possibilities IG offers and of course for every single one of you! I love you. Let’s continue to spread love, inspiration and positivity together.
  1. I travelled the WORLD alone
    Curiosity and the love for different cultures, countries and people led me to travel the world. I decided to enjoy this unique journey all by myself. I was at a point in my life where I needed some time. Time to discover myself, to figure out what I want in life and which future I want to create for myself. It took me a lot of courage to step out of my comfort zone, to quit my job and leave family and friends for a long time. But trust me if I tell you, that this was the best decision I ever made. I learned a lot about loving myself, found serenity and got in the process of becoming the best version of myself every day. 
  1. Female soccer player vs. poledancer
    Pole Dance is a big passion as you already know. I have been doing pole now for more than 10 years and am a pole instructor for more than 5. It is a physical challenge where I can play with my sensuality and help other individuals to reach their goals. All in one – PERFECT! In my younger years I loved to play soccer. I was not that good at scoring but I was fast, competitive and a teamplayer. What a great contradiction don’t you think?

    Love you more than anything else! There is nothing more to say. Period!
