Time for some Jerry from Strada Stretta

Feels like it's been ages since I last gave you my bit about a favourite personality, but I'm going to blame summer and this suffocating weather for that one. Last week I decided I wanted to resume with my 'dor loves' posts. I took out my journal and had a look at the names on the 'personalities list' I like to keep as a reference for my next post. Having skimmed through it, I thought ''to hell with the list, I'm going to write about someone who I've been meaning to feature for ages'.

Jerry Mallia, who we've seen on a number of local TV series already, is a talented, unpredictable 20-something. His last appearance, interepreting Gian Marie on the famous TV Drama Strada Stretta has seen him portraying a confused, angry soul in pursuit of happiness. He tries to find love with Violet, a married woman who gives him lots of emotions yet never feels 'his'. As I ask Jerry whether he can relate to the role he interprets on Strada Stretta in any way, he laughs and asks me whether I'm a wine or a beer person. I tell him I'm a bit of both and note that this unpredictable chap is also a genuine soul who loves life and the challenges it brings with it.

We hit it off immediately, mostly because he's a straight-forward chap who blurts out whatever is on his mind, without trying to impress, sell himself too hard or fish for undue praise. With him it's a matter of what-you-see-is-what-you-get and I like that. I tell him about that time when I asked Steven Dalli - Director of Strada Stretta - to tell me about Jerry's acting skills. Steven had, in fact, mentioned what an innovative actor capable of portraying reality in Drama Jerry is. In turn, Jerry tells me about his passion of capturing footage for short movies, something I check out later to see whether he's any good. HE IS! He so is!

An hour later it feels as if I've known Jerry for ages. Could be because our meeting didn't feel like an interview but rather a chat with an old friend. I gather he's feeling the same thing so I ask him. Again, he laughs and goes to pay the bill.

As for the rest of the post, you know how it goes. I provided Jerry with a list of words that remind me of his personality and asked him for the first word that comes to mind. His replies follow ;)

Lately the blog has won the attention of a number of male followers (thank you guys!) and I've been meaning to draft something for the gents for ages. I happened to come across a brand which caters for the urban beardsman and provides a range of beard and moustache care products, and since hubby is at the moment obsessed with grooming his beard I thought I'd get him to review a product for me ;) Here goes a couple of words from the Mr.

*UPDATED* - What's in my makeup bag
Category: loves

Despite being no makeup expert, I've grown to love the world of cosmetics. And 'love' is probably an understatement. It's like going mad each time I discover new beauty products and learn new makeup tips. Most of all, I love going into pharmacies and spend ages swatching highlighters, blushers and lippies and exit with a colourful painting on my hand :)

A number of you lovely people, who share my same passion for makeup, have
