First, a little something about me
Hi there, and welcome to my blog! My name is Chiara. Ma Che Davvero? (Are you kidding me?), first launched in April 2008, is my personal blog.
I was born in Rome, Italy and I live in London since 2012.
I am a blogger, a writer, a digital strategist and a freelance journalist. I am a columnist for Cosmopolitan Italia (Love life) and Gioia Magazine (Expat mum life) and a contributor for Vanity Fair Italia and Jamie Mag Italia (travel).
I wrote a bestseller book, ‘Quello che le mamme non dicono‘ (What mums don’t tell) – Rizzoli.
My blog Ma che davvero? talks about:
- Everyday life in London
- Travel and events, with frequent photoposts and reportages
- Maternity and parenthood, in a very ironic and unconventional way
- Style and creativity
- All things nice
Since 2013 the main blog posts are in double language: ITA and ENG
