Hello! My name is Angela, aka The Ladybug (to my virtual friends, and also for the real ones sometimes!); I am a vintage and travel lover and I try to put all my passions and stories in this blog that is basically a chronicle of my life!
I have spent the last few years following vintage and travel blogs and sites until I realised that I needed to see something a little less glossy, more real and closer to the average person’s daily life. So, I decided to create my own. It still sounds crazy to me: I had no idea of how to start a blog (I must confess that I am still quite confused about that!); not-to-mention, I don’t have a lot of time to devote to a blog!
I have a full time job, I go to work Monday-Friday at 7am (with heels in my bag), I have a house to take care of, friends and family to stay connected with, bills to pay and I can’t afford a Chanel quilted 2.55 bag or a year off to travel across Africa (my biggest wish).
I practice yoga and meditation, I love running and I am a real bookworm.
I am a travel addict and I sell my vintage and thrifted wardrobe on Depop, Ebay and Vintag (user: theladybugchronicles)
I’m a small town girl living in the big city: I moved to Milan in 2012 and I LOVE IT! I am Italian and English is my third language (so, PLEASE forgive my mistakes!)
Not a great start for a blogger, I know!
BUT I have a beautiful camera, stylish and interesting friends, a very long travel wish list and many things to say and share with the world!
