Layering is Spring’s escape. It’s a way to make sure that weather changes never catch you off guard. The rules are pretty simple – you start with body-hugging items and add more loose, oversized clothes over, so that they keep you warm without making you look like a tortilla. You can play with different textures, […]

1, 2, 3, 4,… 10 toes. My mom took her first deep breath after birth. She, as many other mothers in this world, had carefully checked that I had all my fingers and toes. That I was a healthy, glowing baby. That’s all that mattered to her. Little did she knew that years later, I’d […]

People say you’re naturally drawn to the season you were born in. I was born in May but I never found the appeal of spring. Summer was for vacation, delightful days at the beach, cocktails and the seaside. Winter was for snowball fights, Christmas, hot chocolate, comfy pyjamas and the smell of cinnamon in the […]

After I put my activities and nutrition in order, I found myself buried in a sea of expired or useless beauty products. Some of them were purchased a century ago, others had been fads that didn’t match my style and my present age (approaching the 30s, guys). So what did I do? What I had […]

Truth be told, there’s only a small number of chic items made from eco-friendly textiles. Of course, fast-fashion retailers are testing the waters with capsules, seasonal collections with clothes made from organic cotton, recycled polyester, […]

I have a short list of favorite designers. While I respect many, I feel like myself in creations from Isabel Marant, Olivier Rousteing, Alexander McQueen, Valentino (Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli), Jean Paul Gaultier. Even when I browse their collections, I can’t say I’d wear every item on the catwalk, blindfolded. It’s impossible to love every […]

I’ve always loved discovering charming and inspiring places in the middle of the city where I could let out my inner Carrie Bradshaw. Places I could go with my laptop or tablet, order a cappuccino and a decadent chocolate cake or light raspberry tart and write the day away. Those places where the food is good, […]

As often as I discover real bargains and cool accessories, I stumble upon weird products. Really, things that sound excentric at first sight but after careful examination, turn out to be unusable or too crazy to sport more than one time. That is the case with Groupon’s first ever edible nail polish. I can only assume […]

Let’s get one thing straight: I’ve never been on a diet. I’ve never checked my weight regularly or been particularly athletic. I was crappy at basketball where dribbling was impossible for my two left hands, I couldn’t do a head stand or go in a full bridge or jump ropes decently. The only thing I […]
