Hello! I’m Bobbi. Well, that’s actually my nickname, my real name is Barbara but it’s nobody has ever used it to call me.
I’m an illustrator and designer and I write on this blog because I love to connect with people. I started blogging in 2009 but the previous blogs were hacked and stolen. The first was stolen by a Japanese company for hair removal. They probably thought I needed their service. The second became suddenly inaccessible and was shoot into cyber space’s black holes, I guess. As much as I tried to fight, I couldn’t get my sites back.
But I didn’t give up! And so I began blogging again, here. I’m a very bad blogger. I am multi-passionate and so I could never choose just one subject to write about. So I just I write about myself and the things I like. Quite randomly.
I was born in Milan, Italy, too many years ago for my taste. Even if I feel 15 and will probably always do, I’ll be turning forty-cough-six in September. Fifteen years ago I left Milan and went to live in the country near Lake Garda. I’m still here, in the same old country cottage I’ve rented 15 years ago. I live here with my cats and dogs, all rescued. Three years ago my mom joined the party.
I’ve been a vegetarian almost my entire life and in the last years, I’ve been eating more and more vegan. If I really have to define my eating habits I’ll say that I’m a vegetarian on a vegan diet because I eat mostly vegan, but sometimes I have pizza with cheese. And ice cream.
I am a music fanatic. A real bookworm. I’ve learned reading by myself at age four, because I always had books in my hands, as everyone else in my family. I also learned English by myself, and that is why it is so terrible. I adore swimming and yoga. I like to meditate. I consider myself a Buddhist. I adore animals. I like to walk barefoot, going to the beach, being close to nature.
I’m super curious, I tend to get bored easily, and my aim in life is to live creatively and freely.
