LOVE IT! #SESSOCONSAPEVOLE


"Two things save us in life: to love and laugh. If you have one it's ok. If you have both of you are invincible."

We had loved long as strawberries love and cream, the sea and the moon. Loved and stained of that sweet and deep love.
 A caress and a smile. His lips were parted and close to mine, so close I almost feel its warmth. Yet, this time, the thin line that kept us away was clear and we were careful not overcome it, for the fear of not being able to go back.
We had declared war countless times, but with the eyes we made still love.
 Love. How complicated is the love.
Love. As we know about love?

Rossetto rosso: i 5 più belli

Coco Chanel said: "If you are sad, if you have a problem of love, put on red lipstick and attacked."
Red lipstick, an object of worship. Red as fire, love, passion.
Considered the apotheosis of make up for its expressive power linked to feelings of passion, its origins come from the icons of the past. Cleopatra was the first to be seduced by the charm of the red lipstick, extracting it from the pigments of beetles and ants. Followed by Elizabeth I of England who took from beeswax. Then there was Marilyn Monroe and her lips enhanced by a scarlet lipstick. After her, a succession of red lips and different shades.

Princess goes to the country

 
"It is not easy to walk alone in the countryside, without meditating on something." C. Dickens

We always run away from something. Even if escape is never the answer to our problems.
 Sometimes I am pervaded by the desire to escape from the city, from its noises, its hectic and stressful life, to hole up for a few hours in the hills or in the country, to listen in silence interrupted only the sounds of nature. That silence, broken by the roar in the background of a stream or by the chirping of birds, in which the brain is free to roam to the best shores.
That place where you breathe again, savoring every "step" of that complex biochemical process. Feeling the air entering the body, nourishing cells and tissues, to cross it completely. Stopping to hear those beats punctuated by heart that sometimes is felt "strongly" to remind us that, after all, is always there with us. Even when we forget it.
Nature always is the cure, with her calming effect. A peace for the senses and the soul.
 The simplicity of small things is the cure for all evil, seize them in all their beauty and know how to appreciate it helps us to measure everything biggest that can happen.

Un caffè (virtuale) con Alessandra Soresina

Let's go back a few months, on a sunny February day. A university town, Pavia, and a princess struggling with a tough exam, one of many.
Months of study went up in smoke in ten minutes. Tears taste of anger, sadness and disappointment  caressed the face as soon as I came out of the courtroom. And at that time there was only one place I wanted to run away, Africa, the same place where I hole whenever I need a break from this world and to dream.
I went downtown and walked to the library. I did not looking for anything in particular but I looked for that continent which, in some way, could make me smile again. I began to wander among the shelves and printed pages in search of something that captured my attention, then, suddenly, I saw it: "Questa notte parlami dell'Africa" ​​and it was love.
Two women, Emma, ​​a lawyer in Milan and Nuri, twenty-two Tanzanian with many dreams. Two different lives but just the same, distant but united by the same dream: to become master of its own destiny. A romance that fascinated me from the beginning, and traveled to that continent that makes my heart beats, that continent of contrasts and wonders, of which you can not do without once known. I read and dreamed, so...with open eyes.
 A succession of emotions, shivers and sighs was accompanying words, pages and chapters, making me wish not to return from that "journey".
There are few people who can describe so well and in detail the feelings that arouse those wide open spaces filled with natural beauty, still less those who manage to make you feel the true essence of those places. I found these qualities in Alessandra Soresina. Hence the desire to meet her...

Sogni d'autunno tra vigneti e uva

October. The autumn, the falling leaves, the vineyards and grapes. Light and nature changing, and with them, perhaps, we change too.
Autumn and its thoughts, heated and lit by a warm sun that still smells of the sea and summer. A poetry of colors. Green and blue that blend with orange accents and overlook the infinite from a hill. On tiptoe, almost hovering, to see what's beyond those lives.
Desires and dreams that hover on white clouds, like the magic of a Viennese waltz. And when the music will stop, and people will leave, we'll be there again. On that muffled cloud of smiles, brought by a sweet memory.

Narciso Rodriguez - For Her L'Absolu

Narciso Rodriguez For Her L'Absolu, a new interpretation of the icon For Her perfume, a pure and refined fragrance, both personal and universal, current and timeless.
Inspired by the profound evolution of modern femininity and dualism, For Her L'Absolu redefines the original perfume enriching a subliminal power that only an "absolute" may contain: a sublime fragrance, with a decided sensuality that the emblematic heart of musk brings prominence.
The jasmine absolute and its voluptuous floral facets make intoxicant the symbolic heart of musk. The delicate notes of amber and woody velvety accents of sandalwood and patchouli adds an intense depth to the fragrance, gently enveloping.

Chanel Airlines

Take that genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the spring/summer 2016 of the Maison by the double C (yes, Chanel!) and boarded at the Gate 2C... the flight to the elegance, with Chanel Airlines, is ready to take off!
The location remains the same, the Grand Palais, set this time as the airport more chic of the planet, where the models parade between check-in and billboards of the departures.
A collection made for a traveler woman, less French and more international, in which the style is fused with a contemporary fashion influenced by street style and social. Among colorful prints, classic tweed suit revisited, scarves clothes, street elements such as baseball cap, denim jackets, tops studded with crystals, there are plenty of studied details, those who do excel the Maison, season after season. Airplane brooches, aviator glasses, sandals and the usual tourist matelassè trolley, strictly with logo!
My dear Karl this time you have WON!
Last call for the flight to elegance..Chanel ladies prepare to takeoff!

7 logiche per vivere bene

"Make sure that happiness is your only vice."
And I from one year to now I choose to be happy. I began a personal journey that led me to cut dead branches, to give up on the way people passed on their negativity and which influenced on my wellbeing, giving way only to positive thoughts and people.
Because happiness is not a destination of arrival, but a way of traveling.

Here are the rules, or rather, the logic I'm trying to follow and I invite you to do yours... our happiness and "good life" are first of all!

1. What other people think of you is none of your
2. Time heals almost everything, give time to time
3. No one is the reason of your happiness except yourself
4. Make peace with your past so it will not ruin your present
5. Do not compare your life to that of others, you have no idea what made their trip
6. Stop thinking too much, it's ok not to know all the answers
7. Smile, you do not have all the problems of the world

GUCCI S/S16

A fashion show, one of Gucci, who enchanted his audience. Alessandro Michele, the new creative director, has really surprised us, taking care of every detail and bringing a new breath of fresh air. A triumph of colors, details, elements, ancient and modern researched styles.
Silk and transparencies, malicious and never vulgar, wrap the Gucci woman who, next spring/summer 2016, aims to be admired, dressed in light and impalpable fabrics. A lady who likes to dress as a man but less androgynous, wearing suits with tie.
Flowers and Parakeets shooting on bags and clothes, whose lines hark back to the 70s.
