May Bank holiday weekend!

3 May

It is May Bank holiday weekend in UK which means we have an extra day for resting, enjoying free time and …dining out!

I love Spain and Spanish food so much, so I decided to try a restaurant in Old Street/ Shoreditch area called Tramontana Bridisa ( link here ).

The place is lovely and cozy, waiters were attentive and if you need any help, they are more thanhappy to explain the ingredients of each dish. We ordered pan con tomate ( bread with garlic and tomato), jamon de bellota ( hand – cut ham) , mussels, berenjenas (aubergines with honey), mussels and a special paella de pescado ( fish paella). Very yummy, probably a bit pricey compared to tapas places in Spain, of course but it is indeed worth a visit.

We then headed to Nightjar, a jazz parlour that I love in Old Street. You need to book months in advance but a special night is guaranteed: live jazz and amazing cocktails!

A lovely night indeed!

I am back ( maybe)

26 Mar

I used to love writing. I have used used simply because I do not have time anymore. Or I am simply lazy.

This blog started as a little space to publish videos that I loved, music that I discovered and list all the gigs that I attended ( simply because I could not remember and yes, nowadays it is helpful to track them down, especially when you say ” Oh, I saw that dj years ago! “) . I also used to have a blog in Italian but when the hosting web platform shut down, I could not cope with the amount of fashion bloggers, photo bloggers, travel bloggers. I was not and I am not at their level.

It was a great medium to know people, I met my best friend via my dead blog and a lot of other amazing people.

It was a super way to express myself and at that time, trolling was not an option.

So I stopped writing. I kind of miss it nowadays, at a special point of my life when everything is changing and probably, I am not even realizing that.

I moved to London almost seven years ago. I graduated from my Master in 2008. I started to work and then London life completely got me. Concerts, nights out, work, no sleep. Now I kind of have a “normal” life, if you would like to call it like this. Work, dinners, drinks, concerts ( I can’t really stop going to concerts, even if I am in my early 30s ) and… a wedding! Yes, it is in less than two months and the thought of it…well it has not sunk yet.

So, another day at the office, another crazy busy day I should say. I came home and started to prepare  dinner and thought  happily about Friday and… I felt the urge of writing, of putting down my thoughts once again.

I confess to be confused as I used to write in Italian and my brain is now split into two: Italian vs English. Who will win? I do not know how this blog will end once again but I really miss my stream of thought, that mix of feelings, inspiring you to write silly and random thoughts at weird times.

So let’s see how it goes and just give this little space another try…it might work as a therapy, you’ll never know!

’till the next time


Adoravo scrivere. Ho scritto adoravo semplicemente perché non ho più tempo. O sono semplicemente pigra.

Questo blog è cominciato come uno spazio per pubblicare video che mi piacevano, musica che scoprivo e per elencare tutti i concerti a cui andavo ( semplicemente perché non  mi ricordavo di tutti e sì, ora come ora è molto utile avere una lista, specialmente quando dici a qualcuno ” Ho visto quel dj anni fa“.

Avevo un blog in Italiano ma quando Splinder ha chiuso, non me la sono sentita di affrontare le migliaia di fashion bloggers, photo bloggers e travel bloggers. Non ero e non sono al loro livello.

Il blog era un grande mezzo per conoscere persone; ho persino conosciuto la mia attuale migliore amica tramite il mio defunto blog e altre splendide persone. Era un modo per esprimere me stessa e allora, il trolling non era così diffuso.

Così ho smesso di scrivere. Mi manca poterlo fare oggi, in un momento così speciale della mia vita, in un momento in cui tutto sta cambiano e probabilmente non me ne sto nemmeno rendendo conto.

Sono venuta a vivere a Londra quasi sette anni fa. Mi sono laureata alla Laurea Specialistica nel 2008. Ho cominciato a lavorare e poi la vita di Londra mi ha completamente preso. Concert, serate fuori, lavoro, no sleep. Ora ho una vita se si può così definire normale. Lavoro, drinks, concerti ( a trent’anni passati non posso smetterla di andare per concerti, è più forte di me) e… un matrmonio! Sì, in meno di due mesi…e il solo pensiero, forse non mi ha ancora preso del tutto, sembrà così lontano!

Così, dopo un altro giorno in ufficio, un altro folle giorno torno a casa. Inizio a preparare la cena e a pensare al Venerdì, ormai prossimo. Improvvisamente ho sentito il bisogno di scrivere, di “mettere giù ” i miei pensieri per l’ennesima volta.

Ero solita scrivere in italiano e ora il mio cervello è diviso a metà: italiano vs inglese.

Non so se questo blog avrà vita longeva ma il “flusso di coscienza” mi ha punzecchiato, resta solo da vedere dove mi porterà. Magari funziona come terapia di distressamento.

’till the next time.


Current obsession

4 Aug

Really loving the new Kasabian album,  awaiting for the December shows in Brixton!



Back to blogging

1 May

It has been more than a year since I last wrote a blog here and I regret it. I started using my Facebook page, Na’s music corner ( and I completely abandoned these pages.

I am still going to a lot of gigs, dj-set and events and I barely have time to dedicate to other activities *apart from working during the day, of course*. I really want to start writing again, especially as the summer season is full of festivals and other interesting events. In the next months I will be in Barcelona for Sonar, at Field Day, Lovebox, Wireless Festival,  Hard Rock Calling and more and I really hope to take pics and write brief reviews about them.


So, see you soon!

Unicorn Kid- True Love Fantasy

12 Dec

And the perfect song for a rainy day like this, from Unicorn Kid


Factory Floor- Two different ways

10 Dec

Grey lazy Saturday morning being spent listening to music and “meeting” new groups.

The last discovery is Factory Floor, from North London, band that apparently formed in 2005.

NME described the band as “post industrial, but it moves beyond that; this is post-apocalyptic, the soundtrack of an underworld disco.”FACT magazine described them as “tech-savvy but pared-down no wave electronic rock”.

If you are in London catch them playing with Caribou and Junior Boys at The Butlins Minehead on Sunday! Event details here

Reckless with you love- Azari & III

9 Dec

New Azari & III video,  I think this is possibly one of my favorite songs on the album.


Reckless with your love 
You. Just. Give it up 
Fearless with your life 
But no-one can you trust 
Reckless with your love 
You. Just. Give it away 
Fearless with your life 
Living day to day 


30 Nov

Brand new track from Vince Clarke (co-founder of Depeche Mode) and Martin Gore under the name of the new project VCGM.

Lana Del Rey-Videogames

26 Nov

Elizabeth Grant, aka Lana Del Rey is a young US singer and lately the buzz is all about her. This song has been named best new track by Pitchfork media and apparently everyone is talking about her lately  .  The video is quite simple and, as she admitted “she would have shot a better one, put a bit of make up and comb her hair if she knew that it would have had so much success”! She look gorgeous anyway and people are wondering if those full lips are real or a result of some …operation!

Anyway…enjoy “Video Games” !!!
