Spending the Xmas holidays with your family when you live abroad is quite a huge privilege (especially when the previous year you were on duty…). This year I managed to fly back to Sondrio, the place where I was born and raised in the Italian Alps, and do all those things that, sometimes, make me feel homesick. Eating my mum’s and brother’s awesome meals (yes, I’m very Italian when it comes to this), enjoying Marlon, my parents’ new pup, watching movies with my family and chatting in front of the fireplace, hiking in the woods and trekking in the Alps, spending time with my friends and catching up on each other’s lives.

Of course I didn’t miss the chance for a quick Lubitel photoshoot with one of my favourite models, my dear friend Adele, in the less wintry atmosphere ever. No snow, blue sky, warm weather, we were not even wearing our coats! Never thought that rolling in the leaves might become glamorous, but Ade proved me wrong.
