Rosso o Arancione? Tangerine!


Time of vitamins, tropical cocktail, orange juice, grapefruit, and Ace (no, not the bleach!) also for the wardrobe of spring summer 2015 that, for the summer, decided to turn red-orange!
Sophisticated but at the same time dramatic and seductive, Tangerine Tango reminiscent of the fact the radiant shadings of a warm sunset, marrying the liveliness and the adrenaline rush of red, forming a magnetic hue that emanates heat and pure energy.
A funyn color, strong and vibrant, the color, the most of all, of  the summer in all respects. From coats to jewelry. From shoes to hats and hair. The red-orange is still the most beautiful nuances of season that dominates and wins on cosmetics because of its versatility, with its exoticism, gives an allure sensuelle.
How to match it? It's very simple! It's fine with almost all colors (or almost). The Tangerine Tango in fact it is perfectly with black, white, electric blue, purple, turquoise and even fuchsia!
So, I convinced you?! ;)

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 memories


Lately my desire to fly (ooooh oooooh) is so much, so much that I dream airports and distant countries even at night. But at the time, several commitments forced me to keep my feet on the ground, just physically ;) So in addition to dream the possible trips that I'd like to do, brush up old memories, maybe you find the perfect destination for this summer!
Today I bring you to Cape Verde, off the African coast. Ever you have been there?
A cluster of islands, 10 to be exact (Boavista Brava, Fago, Maio, Sal, Santiago, Santo Antao, Sao Nicolau, Sao Vicente), volcanic strung like a necklace of jewels and surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean: this is the archipelago of Cape Verde, off the coast of West Africa.
The natural heritage of unquestionable beauty of the Cape Verdean archipelago ranges from long pristine beaches to lunar and desert landscapes. Bustling colonial towns of Cape Verde gives the visitor the true image of the country and the Creole spirit of Cape Verdean.
The climate is tropical dry, with temperatures ranging around 26 degrees all year. Being an archipelago so windy, it is ideal for fans of surfing and kitesurfing. Not only, even fans of diving, snorkeling or deep sea fishing will find particularly rich seabed. The wind for me was a little drama. Why? Because being a lover of the long, endless, regenerating, walks on the beach, I could not fully enjoy the view and its sand dunes. Can you imagine??? But be quiet, it is NOT always the case! I have confirmed, both the locals and acquaintances; let's say that on that trip have not been very lucky.
I was in Cape Verde in March (a few years ago), the first 3 days of travel, among other things, the sky was not very kind to us poor wretches from an Italian still chilly, making us enjoy, in addition to strong wind, even those tropical rains that there are almost nonexistent. This only for 3 days, after I was luckier (Desi are you sure?), or not, since I also burned. You should know that your princess HATES creams and that feeling greasy and sticky, especially under the hot sun, so after putting the first layer of protection, do not put it back again, not even after the first bathroom.
But back to Cabo Verde (named by the Portuguese who colonized), the beauty of the islands has been largely kept secret, only in recent years in fact have become tourist destinations, offering not only the nature of the tropics, even the experience a culture and a people particularly creating a rich mixture of parties, joy and cheerfulness.
The long endless beaches (Sal and Boavista have beaches looking desert unforgettable), wrapped turquoise ocean, the mystery of the historic colonial cities that gives to Ribeira Grande the title of the first European city in the tropics, the wide variety of sights, the deep green of the lush vegetation, are all elements that give the islands an old and mysterious charm.
In Cape Verde there is no native population, because the entire population is immigrant. The current population in fact comes from diverse ethnic groups, both African and European, who have over the centuries mixed, creating an ethnic and unique unto itself, without equal in Africa: the Creole of Cape Verde. In fact the music, cuisine and even architecture, incorporates African influences, Portuguese, Caribbean (as the crow flies Cape Verde is located just opposite to the Caribbean) and Brazilian.
A samba and salsa, sprinkled with African tribal escort, involving totally, your evenings.
If you enjoy fine beaches, the enchanting landscape of the tropics, vibrant cultures and still genuine and have a sense of adventure, then the Cape Verde Islands are waiting for you!

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 giarre.com. 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 (http://www.niyoandco.com/it/) 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.

YSL Nano Sac De Jour #OBSESSION

May and a new #obession. It's time for a bag that is, literally, losing my head.
It's called Sac De Jour and is the bag of the moment in the house Saint Laurent and homes (read wardrobe) of all the fashionistas, especially the "nano" size.
Colorful, glamor and immutable elegance, it's the perfect bag to customize in chic key every look.
If the name -bag from day- characterizes it as an accessory daytime, the Sac De Jour is instead a passepartout to wear all day.
I crave it in fuchsia and you?
Now I go to find the Genius (yes, that of the lamp), perhaps he advances some wishes to fulfill!
A kiss princesses

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.

I profumi della primavera 2015

The transparency of the water, the reflection of the sun on hot days, the life that is born, in the gardens, where exploding colors, and give life to precious alchemy that are now summer.
Delicate bouquet, sparkling citrus, marine notes. Fragrances of spring mix of timeless link. Read, impalpable as the scenarios that evoke romantic but cloying, mix flower essences and sparkling citrus, perfect to awaken the senses after the winter slumber.
Bergamot, mandarin and lemon, they capture with their energy and vitality, and then give way to the protagonists of the season: the flowers. Rose, peony and jasmine are all the rage, and wrap with their reassuring and classic scents.
Fragrances more feminine point on flowery and fruity mix.
The new Si by Giorgio Armani, which fuses the bitter freshness of Neo Jungle Blackcurrant Essence and green pear notes of mandarin, bergamot and neroli with delicate petals of May rose and freesia, Emozione by Salvatore Ferragamo that matches bergamot to the delicacy of the peony, the Bulgarian rose and heliotrope.

The sparkling and citrus notes are perfect for the day as they give a feeling of comfort and freshness. Prediligete the eau de toilette (especially on hot days). Among the evergreen, fragrant waters of Roger & Gallet, which are renewed in look while retaining the essence of all time, the new Blu by Acqua dell'Elba, a mix of Mediterranean flavors and juicy.

After sunset, eau de parfum most sensual, where the delicate bouquet are combined with spices, amber and woods. From Paradiso by Roberto Cavalli (here for more information) to Tea Escape by Martin Margiela, an exaltation of contrasts.

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.

INSTA-SPRING

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!
