It's finally here!

It's my favourite time of year again - December!!! I love this time because I get to spend Christmas with my family!    As always, everyone is extremely busy during the few weeks leading up to Christmas - I have my final exam of the semester soon, and I need to organize and pack everything at the same time since I'm leaving for Dubai the day after (which, of course, means that I can't concentrate on my studies properly since I'm so excited and always thinking about my upcoming holiday!).

I will soon post a picture of my traveling outfit and my new carry-on bag that I bought recently;  I decided to buy a roll-away one since I'm tired of carrying a heavy purse through the airports every year... this will be much better for my back, I'm sure! 

Finally, this post wouldn't be complete without me mentioning FOOD in one way or another!  Recently I brought home some dinner from the italian restaurant "Mercatto" for my sister and I ... we shared their Zucca pizza, goats cheese and mushroom ravioli, and papardelle bolognese and we made some homemade salad on the side.  Everything was so delicious, especially the pizza which had butternut squash, spinach, fontina cheese, and walnuts so I had to recreate it a couple of days later (and it turned out pretty well)!

P.S. Sorry for the blurry picture, it was taken on my phone
