Dolce & Gabbana beauty ape-car: la bellezza passa per strada!

Ice cream, water ice, hot dogs!!
Ah no, make up!
Other than street food, now is the beauty to pass the street.
Thanks to the beauty-bee car of Dolce & Gabbana, a van with 3 wheels decorated with Sicilian inspirations, full of makeup, makeup is a porter and passes through the streets of Milan (until the end of October) with a tour dedicated to the beauty in motion.
#DGBeautyOnTheGo, the official hashtag of the fragrance marathon in collaboration with the Douglas perfumeries. The beauty bee-car proposes the latest in makeup and fragrances recounting by beauty experts and make-up artist officers, available for tailored advice. From lipstick to blush, but also concealers, eye shadows, and all you need for a flawless makep!
A genius like this only them could find it, and it's love at first sight!

Urban Safari

Sometimes I wake up in the morning as well, with the memory of that bitter scent that tickles the nose, that mix of nature and clay. That of the savannah.
With the desire to open the curtain of the tent camp, go for a sweet breakfast with a biscuit and African coffee enjoying the awakening savanna after a starry night around the fire; nights of dreams, silences and magical sounds.
Be caressed by the cool of the morning that uncombed hair, with the colors of sunrise and the sun illuminating the horizon and the lake where the lions run to drink. Before heading out, armed with binoculars and hat, on a Jeap and venturing on the red and dirt streets, looking for herds of zebras and gazelles in flight, families of elephants, graceful ladies with long necks (= giraffes), lionesses in hunting, leopards vain and proud to show off the beautiful snow, and him, especially him the King. The Lion, my favorite "kitten".
But when all this is too far, when having breakfast with cappuccino and a biscuit, in front of a PC and a view slightly different from the wild and rugged savannah, you realize you are in a jungle, yes, but underground, you can not help that open the closet, wearing a dress with an animal print, wide-brimmed hat and a straw bag, humming "Jambo, Jambo Buana .." (if you're in Kenya, you will recognize it!). Surely not the suitable outfit for a safari, a real one, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
The jungle city... is waiting for me!

Bond Girl

A call in the middle of a yoga class. A new top secret mission.
A summer suit, a thin layer of red lipstick and big Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses.
A plane from New York to Los Angeles and a car ready to run away.
A birthday party, Ron's, Mexican businessman who, as they say in Italy, "played with fire too."
15.000 guests, all gathered in the garden of his villa, but among them are hidden infiltrators determined to make the poor Ron dancing to the sound of maracas.
Just missing him and the mission can begin. Bond, James Bond.

Capo Verde, tesoro dell'Africa Occidentale

Capo Verde, al largo delle coste del Senegal, è la meta perfetta dove dimenticare lo stress cittadino e vivere una vacanza da sogno.
10 isole di origine vulcanica -Boavista, Brava, Fago, Maio, Sal, Santiago, Santo Antao, Sao Nicolau, Sao Vicente- allineate come un collier di gioielli e circondate dall'Oceano Atlantico: questo è l'arcipelago di Capo Verde, al largo dell'Africa occidentale.

Ex colonia portoghese, Capo Verde è un mix di culture, cucina, musica e architettura che incorporano influenze africane, portoghesi, caraibiche, brasiliane, e che creano uno splendido connubio etnico.
A Capo Verde non esiste una popolazione originaria, in quanto la popolazione attuale proviene da etnie differenti, africane ed europee, che si sono mescolate nei secoli, creando un'etnia unica e a sé stante, che non ha eguali in Africa: la creola di Capo Verde.
Aride, ventose e collinari, le isole di Capo Verde affascinano per il loro paesaggio lunare e desertico e il silenzio dominante.  Le animate città coloniali di Capo Verde regalano al visitatore la vera immagine del paese e lo spirito Creolo dei capoverdiani. Alcune isole si differenziano per la loro vegetazione lussureggiante, ma ad unirle sono spiagge, tutte lambite da acque turchesi e paesaggi vulcanici.
 La bellezza dell'arcipelago è stata in gran parte mantenuta segreta, solo negli ultimi anni le sue isole sono divenute mete turistiche, offrendo oltre che la natura incontaminata dei tropici, anche l'esperienza di una cultura e di un popolo particolare creando una miscela ricca di feste, gioia e allegria.

Il clima è di tipo tropicale secco, con una temperatura che oscilla intorno ai 26° tutto l'anno che rende Capo Verde una meta perfetta per concedersi una vacanza al mare d'inverno. I mesi ideali, infatti, per visitare questa destinazione vanno da novembre a luglio. Essendo un arcipelago molto ventilato, è l'ideale per gli appassionati di surf e kitesurf. Ma non solo, anche gli appassionati di subacquea, snorkeling o pesca d'altura troveranno fondali particolarmente ricchi.

Dall'Italia, con voli di linea diretti come quelli proposti da Neos, in sole 6 ore di volo ci si ritrova a Capo Verde. Una volta giunti qui e portate le lancette dell'orologio in avanti di 2 ore, inizia la settimana all'insegna del "No Stress".

Lady Dsquared

Lately I have a new fixation, it is called: red. Yes, the lover of pink, blue and black regard to clothing, has fallen in love or infatuated (we'll see how it will evolve the lovestory) of a warm, flashy and confident color just like the red and the image it want to convey. Maybe the passion for this color is just a fleeting crush, or not, and maybe due to the fact that the color of love par excellence, as you could see, "burned" the catwalks, becoming one of the hottest colors season.
So this spring, forget even the number of fire engines and get ready to burn the streets of the city, I have already begun!
A red pencil skirt combined with beloved white shirt, a big black hat as the Miu Miu pumps, red clutch and Dsquared2 cat sunglasses, that I've found on Definitely perfect to complete my ladylike look, is not it?

NIYO&CO. #youritalianbeauty

Hello princesses! Today I want to tell you about a brand of makeup and beauty that I got to know and test: NIY&CO. How many of you know it? Surely the Roman friends will already have heard about it, right?!
NIY&CO. is the real Italian perfumery, an established company in the perfume world with over 40 years of experience and with more than 2000 items including make-up and accessories, cosmetics, fragrances and perfumes, face and body treatments, skin care plus a men and children line.
Selected products and high quality at affordable prices, these are the strengths of NIYO&CO.
But we see the inspiration of this brand:

-N = New, a new concept in perfumery
-I = Italian, a brand completely Made in Italy
-Y = Young, because it's a young, dynamic and fresh brand
-O = Original, because it is the only franchise that offers a full range of products designed and manufactured in Italy
-&CO = Convenient

From these 5 points it was born the world's NIYO&CO.
Where you can find NIYO&CO. products? On the new online shop ( or at a retail store in Rome, Arezzo and Naples.
In the next post I will talk extensively of creams and makeup products received and I'm trying, do not miss them!

Chic Gardening

Dreams are like flowers. They must be cultivated with determination when they are buds, they must be looked after...dreamed.
We must prepare them fertile ground and, like small seeds, they must be growned and processed in sprouts until they take root in our present. 
Each has its season and its needs. Sun and water are vital sources, but the flowers and dreams must be treated with love and delicacy.
We must give them all the care they need; they must be loved, sprayed, pruned, fertilized and the best fertilizer is always love. The love and passion for what we do.
Only after much attention, care and sacrifice, we see blossoming our "pride" and admire it in all its beauty.
Dreams are like that, they must be fed, encouraged, always. Otherwise, how weak shoots, die soon, never become sturdy plants, do not change the life. Neither ourselves nor to others.
Dreams are just like flowers, if you do not take care they lose their beauty but if you let them flourish may make you proud and happy of care provided to them. Because one of the most fascinating things in the flowers is their wonderful secrecy.

Sweet, sugar, candy girl

The scent of freshly baked croissants, jam ones, the only ones I like, which blends in the crisp May. The cappuccino with two lumps of sugar for a sweet awakening. The blue sky and the feeling of lightness that floats like a light cloud of cotton candy.
The hills, the city view and a huge park, that of the castle. I don not still said, but here in Tortona once there was really a castle, stood on the hill Savo, the most important of the seven on which, according to tradition, was founded my city. Now remain only the tower, much like that of Rapunzel, and its park. An oasis of peace where you breathe deeply, forgetting for a moment the hectic life that takes place a little later, and regain the prosperity and happiness of children running happily in those fields. The pink and roses, those of May, my favorite, and the desire to run and jump like them, without thinking of Gigliola Cinquetti and "non ho l'età" which to return a second child we always are on time. Also to make "bubbles" with the legendary Big Babol of childish 90s.

Djerba, la perla del Mediterraneo

Sand, sun, sea, history and spices. Thus began one of the first trips in Africa.
After a first approach to the Land of the Pharaohs, Egypt, I have visited several times, I went back more to the north, halfway between Italy and Africa, an island in the Mediterranean many still unknown: Djerba.
Djerba is the largest island of North Africa, located in the Gulf of Gabes, off the coast of Tunisia. Formerly known as Lotophagitis, the island where, in the Odyssey, Odysseus and his companions meet the people of the Lotus Eaters.
Also known as the "Island of Dreams", Djerba today is a relaxing oasis between desert and Mediterranean Sea, one of the main tourist areas of Tunisia, together Tabarka, Monastir, Hammamet and Port El Kantaoui, best known for La Ghriba, one of the oldest synagogues pilgrimage site.
The beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear sea, combined with a mild climate throughout the year, are the highlight of this island, which is about two hours from Italy.
Houm Souk, literally "The neighborhood of the market", is the capital of Djerba, typical for Menzel, white houses with blue doors and windows, which make up almost a hive. Here, in addition to countless tree hibiscus (my passion) are the traditional souks, or markets, where to find local crafts, silver jewelry, spices, rugs and the famous ceramics, with all their corollary screams and trading, because, if you still do not know, in the Arab markets to negotiate is a must!
There are also the fishing harbor, at the Marina of Djerba, with traditional amphorae fishing for octopus.
But Djerba is also history and religion. Here, as well as several mosques, there is a Jewish community with one of the oldest and most famous synagogues in the world, El Ghriba, located in the village of Hara Sghira or Er-Riadh.
Today I woke up as well, with the taste of the sea and the memory of one of the best trips I've done.

An explosion of colors, pink and flowers. It's the spring and my Instagram @desireedaloia in the past month that is "blossomed" in the true sense of the word!
It was a bit of time that I didn't shared with you my shots, so, by browsing the photo gallery on the phone, I could not resist ;)
And it is with this riot of spring that I wish you a happy weekend!
