Lives In: Bologna, Italy
About Me: My name is Alessandra. I am a blogger, stylist and social media specialist with a dreamer and creative soul. I love to surprise and delight others, to plan parties, and to bake. I am the single-mother to a son who taught me to enjoy simple and little things and to always look for the bright side of things. Thanks to him I also understood the importance of being happy. I believe in love, pink, cupcakes, and chocolate. I started Almalu’s Place, my lifestyle blog, back in 2010. I was looking for a way to share my creativity and distract from my daily job. I always had a great passion for fashion and design (I graduated in Fashion and Design Management and Communication), and as a child, I loved to cut my mom’s magazines and make collages out of them. Growing up I also started baking and planning parties! And Almalu’s Place was the “place” where I shared all of these passions! When I became a mom, my son revealed me a completely new world!
