Life in pictures: archaeo-graduation!!!

Where have I been these months? Basically, on a +200-pages-long red book about an amazing place in Turkey. Hopefully, the graduation day came right after Valentine's day and I'm here to show you a couple of pictures. 
I graduated the first day of the first 2016 graduation session with a friend of mine I met at an excavation work field.

It was early afternoon and I was already exhausted, I remember, as I've taken two trains in order to arrive in Naples. I was extremely nervous and tired because of the poor sleep quality and stress from the weeks before. It looked like nothing was going the right way: lack of energy, printing issues, memory blackout and so on and so forth.
But I DID IT! No matter how or how long, I've achieved that goal I was looking for, frighten by and dreaming about and I still can't believe it.
What's crowning my head is the typical laurel crown all fresh graduated guys wear after the proclamation. Green and red are the colours you'll see around in that period in all Italian university courts. Yes, those are real chili peppers...

The wish card from my archaeo-pals with a fresh bouquet with tulips, mimosas, iris.... a very fragrant and cheerful mix. They are all so sweet and... some of them graduated the following days and weeks! Congrats pals!!!



About red things and the colour red, the lipstick I was wearing for this great milestone is the newest lipcolour from Avon, the Perfectly Matte in Ruby Kiss.
A vibrant and opaque red, a bit cherry-like on my already pigmented lips but it turns real red after a while, that lasts up to 8 hours, it applies silky smooth and is super hydrating.
I'm in love, seriously in love with it.

An explosion of colourful confetti to finish off the day as well as snaps, sweets and sparkling wine for all.
