ten things to love about blogging and reading


With February being the unofficial month of love, I couldn’t help but participate in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! {And, if you’re new to the blog, it’s my tradition to post it on Monday night.} Hosted by the ladies at The Broke and the Bookish, this week’s Top Ten Tuesday was the ten things you love about being a blogger and/or reader. Since I have been blogging since November 2011, and I have been a reader long before that, I divided my list into the two topics. Before I share, can I just say how much I love being part of the blogging community? It is just such an awesome thing, and I can’t wait to see what you guys love about blogging and reading too! :)

Have a terrific night!


Happy 2014!

2014 Will Be a Great Year{via}

Happy New Year’s, sweet friends! Ciao Bella will be back on a regular schedule starting later this week {starting with a long awaited book review!}, but I just had to pop in to wish everyone a good start to 2014. Above is what I have in mind for the new year. Let’s make 2014 worth it, shall we? :)


In & Out


Cute Little Christmas Tree



This is a quick in and out post! Things have been crazy busy here with Christmas less than a week away and a jam-packed few days at school, so blogging has become less of a priority right now. Fortunately, my twelve-day vacation officially began this afternoon, so I am looking forward to time for sleeping in and some blogkeeping! :) Ciao Bella will be a bit sporadic until January hits, but I am just letting it play out on its own. And, I mean, really can you believe that we are nearing the last full week of December?! Insane, friends.

Have a wonderful start to your weekend!
