Welcome to The Bellezza Corner, my beauty corner for all things beauty in life, style, wellness and something I like to call “soul food.” I love sharing new healthy lifestyle tips and my latest finds in fashion and beauty with the people I love, so I thought I’d expand my audience a bit and take my findings to the world wide web.

I am very passionate about health and wellness, and enjoy finding innovative ways to use natural products to enhance my daily life, beauty regimen and support my ongoing healthy lifestyle.  I spend a lot of time researching and understanding natural ingredients in an effort to avoid harmful substances and chemicals where possible and to ensure that I am using products that are great for my health and beauty!  I love finding new ways to substitute a product with a more “natural” and better-for-your-body option that gets the same job done!

I lump a lot of things under “wellness” too. I don’t just mean wellness in terms of food and natural beauty products, but also wellness, and peace, for the mind, body and soul – hence, my soul food section.  I share my findings and experience of various techniques for living a less stressful, happier, more peaceful life.

I also love fashion, trying out new trends and styling outfits with my own flavor so you will always find a steady dose of that on The Bellezza Corner too.

My hope with this blog is that the things that I’ve found and continue to find useful will also be useful to you, and enhance your lives in some way.  My belief is that blogging and social media should serve to lift each other up and offer support, rather than compete or try to portray a lifestyle that is not realistic and too “perfect” to be true.  We’re going for realness here, people!

I’m currently living in Sarasota Florida, after spending some time in Boston, then Chicago and before that, several years in Milan, Italy.

Ciao loves!

Over 2500 followers in a year- thats pretty amazing! If you have any tips….I am all ears. I loved these posts.

    Hello Amanda & Thank you for visiting my blog (still under construction) It made my day & I’ve enjoyed checking yours as well. It is truly amazing & inspirational. 🙂

  19. January 29, 2017 / 2:28 pm

    Thank you for visiting! You have such a pretty blog :), and i love your idea of wellness as a soul discipline too. And yes, it is about realness – too “perfect” images of lifestyles scare me away))) Keep up the good work!

    • January 30, 2017 / 11:43 am

      Thank you, that’s really nice to hear. Always trying to be real and approachable. No sense in trying to put up a *perfect* front when no one’s life is perfect. 🙂

      • January 30, 2017 / 3:08 pm

        It’s a good intention! Too much “perfection” out there, keeping us all trying to reach it 🙂 We all need an authentic turn right now))
