It`s international womens day, so I`ve decided to tell you some things about the women behind this blog.
Yes, that`s me!
So, 7 things most of you probably didn`t know about me!
1. I can`t sleep without my hot water bottle.
I know, this is weird, but I use it every single night, even in summer. I just love that warm feeling against my belly. Sometimes, when the water is a little to hot, I wake up with red spots...
2. I`m half italian.
My dad`s italian and my mom`s swiss. I don`t speak italian, but I understand almost everything.
I feel and look (I think?) very italian, and a lot of people tell me that I`m very similar to my female italian relatives, which is a huge compliment, because they are very strong, beautiful but stubborn women.

3. I have four tattoos.
And there will be more!
4. I`m a huge bookworm and I wanted to be a writer since I was 6.
I always have a book with me, every where I go. I read very different kinds of books, I`m also going to the library and I love the smell of new books and old books!
5. English is my favorite language.
I guess you may have noticed that one.
Well, I learned english in school, and loved it ever since.
I`m reading, watching (tv series online) and writing in english, and sometimes I even think english.
I caught myself searching for a german word, the other day and I just kept thinking the english one.
6. I suffer from an anxiety disorder and panic attacks.
I know, this is kind of heavy stuff, but I want to be open with you guys, because that`s a part of me.
I am fighting everyday and it`s going better now, but it`s still a lot of work.
It`s coming from different problems, like that I am highly sensitive, I`m very strict with myself, and a little may be genetetic, but nobody knows that for sure.
And that`s why, you don`t see a lot of pictures from activities...I mostly stay at home.
But I`m really trying to change this and it`s one of my goals for this year, to go out more, and to show it here.Because I want to be free again!
But it`s not always just a burden, because I learned so much about myself in the past few years and I discovered my creativity!
And I hope I can be a rolemodel to some of you outthere with the same problems!
You`re not alone and you don`t have to be ashamed!
7. My sister, aka Little Lotta is like my best friend!
I know, that sounds kind of weird, because she`s seven years old.
BUT, I always wanted a little sister. It was my biggest dream and wish.
And it came true, when I was 13.
Sometimes I`m more a mother, and sometimes I`m more a friend.
It`s really so great to have a kid around all the time!
I can actually talk to her about so much. She knows a lot about blogs and loves to look at the pictures with me and we watch Glee together. And she loves to wear my clothes already!
But she`s also a normal seven year old girl, who doesn`t like some boys, loves to play with dolls and doesn`t want to go to bed!
