So, if you are looking for resources on how to improve your children’s writing, please visit her site.

Now, 10 Questions for Bellissimamma…

What do you love about blogging?

I love blogging because I have always wanted to create something that I can call my own. I really enjoy writing about my family’s adventures in Italy. When I blog about topics that I really like (lifestyle, literacy, and little kids), I feel energized and inspired!

What do you hate about blogging?

Sometimes I compare my blogs to other well-known blogs and feel slightly discouraged because I know that I still have a lot to learn and improve on. However, being nominated for a prestigious award such as The Sunshine Award really gives me the boost that I need to keep on going!

What is your favourite book to read?

Right now, I am enjoying reading the Harry Potter Book Collection. It’s funny that I am only reading this now at 33 years old! I have seen all the movies but reading Harry Potter is a completely different (and more exciting) experience!


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself traveling to many different places around the world with my husband and two boys! I am also excited to be super involved in my kids’ school activities (e.g. PTA Mom) as well as my boys’ after-school sports ( e.g. Soccer Mom). Also, I am still blogging and enjoying what I do.

What is the ultimate goal of your blog?

I envision Bellissimamma to be an online resource for expat living in Italy, beauty and lifestyle tips for mammas, and multilingual/ literacy education. I also want to feature more inspirational Filipinas.

If you could be a superhero, what power would you have and why?

I would love to have the ability to turn back time to relive memories and to redo past mistakes.

What do you do to relax?

Face masks! Warm showers! Coffee break!

What is your favourite TV series?

Right now, my favorite TV series is This Is Us. The characters are so relatable and each episode gives me “the feels”. Jack (the dad) for me is the perfectly imperfect husband and father. I also admire Randall’s character and the way he raises his kids with his gorgeous wife Beth.

What brings you joy?

It brings me so much joy to see my children Leon and Lucas grow each day. I love my two little boys so much! They are my source of pride and happiness.
