This June is nearly over and so far I really love it, so I decided  to make a post about what I mostly used, did or discovered in this period!


One of the biggest thing I did this month is definitely changing my hair colour, giving to them a more natural shade after a year. I got kinda sick of the ombré I had, even if I don't regret anything because I love ombré hair.. But I just needed a pause, let's put it this way! Anyways, since the extremities of the hair were blond, they still go from a darker to a lighter color. 


I would have never thought of buying a tablet once: first because I feel more comfortable with computers, but also because I basically thought they were useless! But ideas can change so fast.  
The computer I have stopped collaborating with me since months now, and this tablet from Samsung became my new friend. Not only it permits me to write on my beloved little blog, but I can now bring my favourite books always with me (I know, it takes a bit if you also love paper books..  But nothing stops you from buying your favourite ones anyway) 


If you are in Berlin, around the area of Alexander Platz.. It rains or you feel tired after a day in museums.. Take a look at the Starbucks of Hackesher Markt, literally where I spend my afternoons! I would like to have a little area with a signboard that says "reserved for pollyalba" in the second floor, best place to study or read for me at the moment (idea that may change since berlin has so many coffees to explore) 


Before, I never really used to invest money for trainers, since I didn't use them that much in Italy.  But coming in Berlin definitely makes your feet cry if you walk a lot as I do, so they need as much comfort as possible! That's why I bought these, in red because why not. 
Of course someone may say they are not the most fashionable ones, they are not chunky boots or other gelly shoes that are so loved at the noment, but I find them cute and pretty easy to pair! 


The power of smoothies tho. How good are they? And as many other things, even if is sad to say, I am happy that it got so "mainstream" so that I could give it a try it and enjoy it. The more simple it is, the more I like it: mango-banana-peach and cherries-banana are my favourite combinations! 


I am happy I didn't read the Italian version of Harry Potter when I was a child, so that I could now enjoy the original English version that is making me connect so much with the books. Definitely better than the movies, maybe because in my imagination it is different and it has the possibility of getting even more magical! 

Some of the photos are from my Instagram account @pollyalba! 
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and that you liked this post. 

With love,

Top: Forever21
Long Skirt: Primark
Crochet Bra: Old
Heels: Primark

It happens any time I come back here, at my parents place, I get always new ideas and some good energy. Also, here I get back any time the chance and the inspiration to write on my poor blog :P
I guess everybody can notice how much I love making photos on beds haha it's like the second post in a row I make this way, but I adore my mom's room and can't help taking photos over there! It has a kind of vintage touch that it's better than putting an accessory to the outfit. 

The look is pretty elegant and I adore that top so much: starting from the bell sleeves, my favourite at the moment.. I had to come here and find this old bra of mine to wear it because I couldn't find anything cute in Berlin! The skirt is a basic one and with the shoes, both from Primark actually, they make the look kinda fancy haha all that to say that a look like this (maybe not everybody will like it) can be cute even if not expensive :)
