Only a few hours to the publication of the my new site! It seems to me the eve of a festival.I will not say December 24th but the day before the birthday, yes! I'm so curious to know if you'll like it! - Tra poche ore sarà online il nuovo sito...Mi sembra la vigilia di una festa, non dico il 24 dicembre, ma almeno il giorno prima del mio compleanno, si! Chissà che ve ne parrà...sono curiosa! E anche un pochino in ansia ;) Continue reading

Honestly I do not have many pairs of shoes Louboutin, because - unfortunately - I adore them but I can not put them on for more than 10 minutes without pain! Ok, we have to suffer to appear more beautiful, I know ... But I make an effort crazy to walk well with those wonderful shoes on .... And I'm sorry, because I feel like a princess with my red soles! Anyway thank you, Mr. Christian Louboutin and congratulations! Onestamente ho poche paia di Louboutin nella mia scarpiera perché, confesso, resisto pochissimo con quelle meraviglie ai piedi e non so... Continue reading

A fashion outing with my students of the Academy of Luxury: we were to drink tea in a Boutique on the quadrilatero, where KristinaTi, stylist of Turin, has customized her creations giving advices to her clients in Milan. I was a little embarrassed in my double role as teacher and fashion victims: In both roles I appreciated the nice initiative! Un té con i miei studenti dell'Accademia del Lusso in una boutique del quadrilatero: KristinaTi personalizzava alcune sue creazioni vintage con passamanerie e le cifre delle clienti milanesi. Ero quasi in imbarazo nel mio ruolo di "prof" e di fashion... Continue reading

A truly unexpected gift! A wonderful surprise! Thanks to my friend Silvia for this short love message for Birkin. I immediately hang this lovely picture in my office and it will look at me as I write, while I photograph, I surf, I think, I get nervous, I enjoy, I phone, I try to concentrate for posting something nice! - Grazie alla mia amica Silvia per questo meraviglioso regalo! Uno short love message per Birkin, wow. Ora lo appendo davanti alla mia scrivania così assisterà alla mia gioia, alla mia confusione, alla mia ricerca matta di notizie, immagini, idee carine...

Pictures are not terrific because of the light. And also because - honestly - looking at these little fishes nibbled hands and feet is not so chic! But my Garra Rufa therapy has been relaxing and enjoyable. Doctor fishes - famous abroad where there are also luxury spa devoted to them - can treat many diseases of the skin or, simply, make an exfoliation with a tickling sensation! (read more here, from The Wall Street Journal) Le foto sono bruttine sia per la luce soffusa sia perché, onestamente, non è così fotogenica una massa di pescetti che mangiucchia mani e...

Arancio, amaranto e marrone: tre tonalità calde e speziate perfette con i cappotti cammello, le sciarpe cannella e maglie senape, di super tendenza quest'inverno 2011-2012. Ma c'è un motivo (buono) in più per regalarsi e ragalare questi toys-anelli in silicone colorato con brillantino nel centro: i bimbi tibetani esiliati in India. Duepunti sostiene il Tibetan Children's Village voluto dal Dalai Lama per curare ed educare i piccoli orfani e bisognosi a Dharamsala. Orange, purple and brown, three hot and spicy colors so trendy this season! But there's one more (good) reason for buying these diamond & silicone rings: Duepunti supports... Continue reading

As soon as possible I will show you the footage shot in front of the legendary Hotel de Russie for my TV program. In my Director's mind I'd be a young lady who goes out with a small hand luggage and walks happily through the streets of fashion .... then .... a bad man... I'll show you. I promise ;) Continue reading

In her Boscareto Resort, among the vineyards in the Langhe, Valentina opened a boutique with lots of beautiful things, her kingdom! When I go there for a little rest, after a massage and a delicious tea, we go to play with Indian pashminas, the american jewellery, the all natural cosmetics: we seem little girls with dolls! Da Valentina, al Boscareto resort tra le vigne delle Langhe, c'è una piccina boutique con un sacco di cose belle! Dopo un massaggio super relax e un buon té, come bimbe con le bambole ci mettiamo a giocare con la bigiotteria americana, le pashime... Continue reading

Lanvin diamond print cabas on Vogue.it... Yes, the bag is really pretty, cool, quite fantastic!!! Yes, obviously, I've partecipated at the concourse... Yes, of course, I'd like to win this cute prize... but It's not true that... Certo... la borsa è bella, la vorrei vincere e sono inciampata (!!!) nel concorso di Vogue.it... ma non è vero che i diamanti sono i migliori amici delle donne!!! Oggi, con gli occhi pesti che mi ritrovo, tra un etciù e l'altro....dichiaro la mia dipendenza assoluta: non posso vivere senza il mio copriocchiaie!!! Not at all... what about my indispensable concealer??? Today I... Continue reading

Green is a color very trendy this season, and next spring/summer we will see it in abundance. So I think my friend Roberto- the coach (whom I met a little while ago on the street) is super cool. Let's say: at the office, with class...j'adore! - Street Style: un po' di verde, colore che vedremo moltissimo anche in primavera estate. Ho appena incontrato il mio amico Roberto-il-coach mentre rientrava in uffico. Che chic! Continue reading

There are shops where you feel at home. Boutiques that seem living rooms, bonbonnière, familiar places. There are little (or big, rarely) stores where you can find a lot of nice things simply right for you and you feel at ease. I really like Mari, a store that looks like his owner, his "mother". Ci sono negozi che ti assomigliano, dove ti senti a casa, dove trovi molti capi perfetti per te e vorresti poter acquistare (o almeno provare!!!) tutto...A me piace Mari, a Milano. Una boutique che somiglia ad un salotto, e somiglia alla sua titolare. Una bomboniera! Continue reading

This morning I had a hard time saying "no". Today is Monday, and like every Monday, I start the week with many good intentions. In a month it will be Christmas and I need a period of purification and detox before the holidays ... So, not without regret, I chose the option good! Come ogni lunedì inzio la settimana piena di buone intenzioni: ad un mese dal Natale, serve un periodo di detox e purificazione, low carbs dopo compleanni e feste! Certo non è stato indolore rinunciare all'opzione "bad" per quella "good"!!! Continue reading

Me, too, paparazzi! I saw these crazy shoes in NY, worn by a very trendy girl. I look for a while, then I asked if I could take a photo for the blog. ;)) Katia is an Italian, cute fashion victim, and she immediately gave me the address of the shop ...Now I've got it, and in Via Montenapoleone I met paparazzi!!!! - Anche io avevo notato e paparazzato queste scarpe! In un ristorante di NY le osservavo rapita ai piedi di una ragazza molto trendy...dopo un po' le ho chiesto se potevo fare una foto per il blog;) Ho... Continue reading

I walked in a hurry in Milan, via Montenapoleone, going to a business appointment. I run into paparazzi. Uncombed hair and stride fast! Certainly, the shoes do not go unnoticed! But................................... ( Read more. Soon!) Camminavo di fretta in Montenapoleone. Mi hanno paparazzata, capelli sconvolti e falcata ampia. Certo le scarpe non passavano inosservate ma.......................... ( arriva!!!) Continue reading
