Tutto cambia

Everything changes. Everything can change from one day to another, from one moment to another. Change the feelings, friendships, our lives, our tastes and our ideas. Change the time and seasons.
Everything can change suddenly. For our will or the will/power of someone stronger than us.
We have no way of knowing the future, that future as unpredictable as unknown.
A moment can change everything? Yes, and this reality has always frightened me, especially when I think of worse things.
Natural disasters, diseases, misfortunes, or simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Then you could also sum it all up with: destiny. Because yes, in the end, for me, it's always all about destiny.
And if you really, at worst, just an handful of seconds to be able to see your world collapsing, dying inside and feel cut the ground from under the feet, then the only thing we should do is: LIVING.
To live fully, truly live. Without the regret of not having taken a chance when there was granted.
We fight, we get angry, we deny hugs for pride, we not love enough and sometimes do not even have enough laugh. We refer moments and we do not spend enough time with our loved ones. Sometimes we forget about those small, large gestures that warm the heart: a caress, a smile, an "how are you?", And other times we take things for granted when, in fact, taken for granted in the love and tenderness there anything.
And if in an instant, in a goddamn minute, we lost all these occasions? Just the thought kills. So forgive, embrace, laugh, kiss, show our feelings, talk, love. And then repeat it for another 10, 100, 1000 times.
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.

Ti ricorderai

You will remember the best days of your life, summer evenings and the winter sea. You will remember that scent you will always turn just feel its wake. You will remember the laughter, tasteful, those that are made with the belly and with tears in the eyes. You will remember the broken dreams and those reached. You will remember those times when you felt collapse, but then you're not falling. You will remember the most simple gestures, those that warm the heart. You will remember a caress, a smile, a handshake, a book, those sweet words and a note forgotten in a sealed box in a drawer. You will you remember that song heard a million times, of that sentence read, an reread engraved on the skin. You will remember the beautiful souls, pure and sincere. You will remember those moments that bear in your heart. You will remember their flavor and smell if they had one.
You will remember the hugs given and those denied, the words softly spoken and the stolen kisses. You will remember the hours spent at the phone laughing, joking, screaming. You will remember that time that life has surprised you and those in which it has hurt and disappointed you. You will remember the scratches on the heart, for love, for friendship, for an unrealized dream. And you will remember those who have been able to put a band-aid on that piece of heart.
You will remember when you were a child, curiosity and desire to grow and explore the world with your eyes. You will remember the fairy tales and the magic of Christmas.
You will remember the sulks and whims and who, unable to resist, those whims indulged them.
You will remember these years, these accelerated emotions, when you felt too much or too little.
You will remember what you have experienced and what you would experienced. You will remember.

Jelenov Greben

On a ridge at the foot of the mysterious Rudnica mountain, just ten meters above the monastery with the third oldest pharmacy in Europe (here), is Jelenov Greben, farm known as Deer Ridge.
A unique place, in the green hills of Olimje, where time seems to stand still. Immersed in the beauty of nature now with autumn colors and enclosed in the charm that gives the wood.
After a gentle awakening at Terme Olimia (here) and a visit to the monastery Olimje, upon our arrival we were immediately greeted by deer and wild sheep, which graze freely over 8 hectares of fenced meadows, ready to be pampered with a handful of corn for all their.
In Jelenov Greben the days are different than elsewhere. Here nature, in some ways, is like there enveloped in a warm embrace. Breathe the pure air of the morning, stroking a flower, listen to the vibrations of a stream, sipping a steaming cappuccino with a colored wool blanket on the legs, warmed by a warm autumn sun, and with a panorama so bewitching and comforting to act as frame. Happiness is being with nature, see her, talk to her, touch her.
A long time ago in this place was a farm that dealt with viticulture and livestock breeding. The young Borut Jezovnik, just eighteen, became the master of this farm, which with so much effort and energy created a colorful history.
After selling all the cattle, he bought 75 deer from the Brijuni islands in Croatia. Later he began to cultivate, preserve and recreate mushrooms.
Today, in this place that seems straight out of a fairy tale of the Brothers Grimm, there are two guest houses that bear the name of the daughter, Rebeka and Karolina, a restaurant where you can enjoy home cooking with specialties of game and mushrooms, but also cheese, salami and wine, and a shop, Zlata skrinjica, where to buy and take home the goodness of the place.

Slovenia: il Monastero Olimje

Not far from Terme Olimia (here), to Podcertrtek, lies the ancient Olimje monastery. Set in a bucolic landscape, green fields, orchards, gardens and fields, the monastery was the castle of Pilstein counts, then moved in 1663 to the Pauline monks Lepogiava, it is inhabited today by the Congregation of the Friars Minor Conventual of St. Francesco d'Assisi.
The exterior facades and the courtyard have frescoes in the Baroque style, with gray geometric decorative boxes. The church has a nave with a barrel vault, it is also in the Baroque style with blacks-gilded altars and a beautiful statue, a half-length, of Blessed Anton Martin Slomsek.
The room on the ground floor of the south tower conceals the old pharmacy of the Pauline monks, famous for its beautiful frescoes dating back to 1780, work of the master Anton Lerchinger, which narrate the paths that lead to the salutes and luck. The frescoes, in fact, portray famous physicians and healers, medicinal plants and Biblical scenes related to the history of medicine.
Even today, the Friars Minor Conventual have preserved the tradition and create herbal teas, tinctures, ointments, and other medical preparations, on sale at the monastery, and which are made from herbs that cure in the botanical garden right outside, where there are more than two hundred medicinal herbs.
Olimje is a peaceful haven in an increasingly hectic world. Here the religious find peace in silent prayer in front of the picture of the Madonna, and nature lovers enjoy the scenery while sitting on benches outside the monastery and let the beauty of nature, the creation of God, speak to them.

Viandante sul mare di nuvole

I saw slip away things I thought unforgettable. I saw slowly fade the memory of looks and moments. I also saw off things never happened when I hoped so. The mind is a big war machine, it builds diabolical devices for safety. But there is a pattern that can not reach. Incidentally there is what remains.
We are strange, undefined, comedians, abused by pain, by the many faces encountered the same heart and above all always looking for what is not there.
We can not lose what you never had but that we have never experiencedit can fail us forever. Yet the joy hates running and climbing. Why dint to go, to run, to not look carefully, time passes and you choose to live constantly waiting.
To go is emotion, emotions are incredible moments but understand when to stop is a real talent.
For this I would like to tell you: run everywhere, more than you want to live and as you can but then stopped with the person who will make you feel all without touching you. Because, in the midst of all the world's people, it will only be that what you need. You will thank the remnant and farewell greetings will be enough to recover your freedom, as always.

Resta così come sei

Never change. Retain the innocence, insecurity, shyness and confidence in dreams. They are the best parts of you.
Do not stop chasing happiness, even when everything will seem unnecessary, even when will be months, years that you do not find it anywhere.
Believe in love, even if they will let you down, stepped on, used, betrayed. Love the rain, the clouds and the sun in the same way and do not stop to be moved.
Embarrassed, blushing, still belting out your favorite tunes, continues to emphasize the most important sentences in your books.
I like to think that when I will reunite, now white hair will have replaced all the color, you'll still so: sweet, real, sensitive, immersed in everything you do and say.
I like to think that the world will not ruin you, that pain will not ruin you. I like to think of you a bit wiser, but always reckless.
Never change, even when they will say that it is absurd to be like you, you will find you sick, they shall devour you. Do not listen to them. Make a difference, stay as you are.

Natale: i regali per le amiche

Missing just over a month to the most sweet and magical period of the year and my mind already flies to decorations, illuminated city that smell of cookies and roasted chestnuts, warm sweaters, Christmas films on the sofa with my beloved red blanket and a cup of hot tea in the hands, hugs and kisses under the mistletoe, snow and gifts made from the heart.
Christmas, one of the best festivity to demonstrate affection to the people we love. Who cares what's inside that bag with golden bow or that package all red, it's the thought and love with which it was donated that count.
Just this week I'm starting to think and to look for the right gift to give to my family and my friends. I'm always looking for something special, not the usual perfume or book, or the usual jewelry; I usually like to gift something useful and that remember me. That is why I always look for something special for my special people.
 So the other day while snooping on Dottor Gadget, thanks to its numerous proposals and the many gadgets super nice, I found the best friend gift ideas of the web: from the personalized mug to butterfly-shaped bookmarks (I have a friend, and I do not do names, who loves them!), from fairy castor (I fell in love!) to the molds for biscuits ideal for that friend who loves to cook.
I can not wait to spend December evenings to wrap the gifts, with Christmas songs in the background, the Christmas tree lights and my mother who prepares the hot chocolate before cuddle on the sofa in front of our favorite films.

Chanel N°5 L'Eau

95 years ago, more precisely in 1921, was born the iconic fragrance Chanel N°5 commissioned by Coco to the chemical Ernest Beaux. A perfume that has taken the liberty to associate contrasting elements such as jewelry, jersey and fur, flowers and aldehydes.
Chanel N°5, indefinable and eternally enigmatic, is not just a perfume but it is an olfactory heritage, a very precise idea of ​​femininity and elegance, passed down from generation to generation.
This fragrance so loved by Marilyn Monroe has never ceased to stimulate the inspiration of the perfumers that always are busy, keepers of the formula without ever betraying the DNA.
Over the years, new versions were created: Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum, Eau Première. And today, in 2016, the perfumer Olivier Polge captures the essence of his time with the creation of N°5 L'EAU. A perfume rooted in the present, now and always.
With the same meticulousness of a goldsmith, Olivier Polge has created a new balance and a perfect freshness. Favoring aldehydes which smell of orange peel, neglecting the metallic ones. Increasing vibrations of various zest and lightening the base notes. Making the most nervous woods and ylang ylang notes greener. Easing the jasmine and mitigating the vanilla. Respecting the history, but push forward to the future, Olivier Polge has totally reinvented the iconic N°5.
Chanel N°5 has never been so fresh and natural. From the original inspiration, Chanel N°5 L'Eau inherits carefree and transparency. The skin scents of limon, tangerine and orange, exalted from aldehydes. A gust of wind carries the wealth of flowers. The rose is mixed with jasmine and ylang ylang to be overwhelmed by a floral bouquet perceiving each petal, feeling its velvety texture and its delicate shapes. Finally, a shock, an unusual vibration given by cedar and vetiver, accompanied by delicate notes of musk.
N°5 L'Eau is the praise of simplicity.
L'Eau is simplicity, modernity, freshness.

Autumn in Lugano


Lugano and the first days of autumn. Lugano, like a picture painted by some kind of great Master.
Lugano, with the rain and the sun, came into my heart. On tiptoe, like a ballerina on the sweet and graceful notes of "Swan Lake".
The city of parks and flower gardens, villas and religious buildings, alpine current and famous chocolate, squares and arcades of the Mediterranean charm of the city center.
A town on a human scale, where getting lost in the streets of the old town, with its many buildings in Lombard style and its exclusive museums, such as the LAC, the cultural center devoted to artistic production and the meeting between the various arts. But Lugano is also the largest city in the Ticino region, as well as being the third largest financial center and the center of conference, banking and business in Switzerland.
From the two closest mountains to Lugano, San Salvatore and Brè, you can admire the magnificent panorama over the city, the lake and surrounding mountains, where you can enjoy the sun of Ticino and daydreaming.
Every corner of the city is a discovery, from the roadside markets, among the luxury boutiques, where delight the palate with typical products or buy local crafts, to those most romantic spots, accessible by boats or cruises, where you can be enchanted by the beautiful landscapes that reveal precious pearls before enjoying great seafood, served in the various restaurants and grottos overlooking the shores of the lake.
Lugano is beauty, nature and marvel in a setting that recalls one of those "007" films. Lugano is a lakeside promenade, lined the Belvedere Gardens and numerous red benches ready to welcome sighs and hugs, to cherish kisses and thoughts, where losing the eyes and heart in such splendor. An invitation to rest, interior and mind tranquility and, yes, even love because, in the world, there is nothing more magical and romantic than a sunset by the lake.

La felicità in un viale di cipressi

It takes seventy-two muscles to sulk but only twelve to smile. So they say, but what does it take to be happy? Sometimes a lot, sometimes nothing.
A caress, a flower, a hug. A ray of sunshine, a kiss, a gentle word, a kind look. A dream that has done it and one in the making.
You look for happiness. Find, pursue, run after it, just like we run after the life, and then grab it. Look in the most hidden places, you can find it everywhere. Sometimes we do not realize it is there, hidden, under our noses, just a step away from us.
It can hide everywhere, as when as children we played hide and seek. Behind a smile, in the little things of every day. Sometimes it can just be hidden in an avenue of cypress trees in Tuscany, between the scent of resin and that of parched earth of August.

Grand Hotel Majestic: la Dolce Vita sul Lago Maggiore

Imagine a 1870 building in "Belle Epoque" style, overlooking Lake Maggiore, one of those "princess" palaces, that leave you in awe and literally speechless once crossed the majestic entrance. A palace of those I dreamed (and I bet you too) as a child, when I imagined myself like a princess, with marble staircases, red carpets, fragrant flowers, mirrors and large refined spaces. One of those buildings that offer exciting views everywhere you look; where to wake up early in the morning, between enchantment and beauty, to admire a dawn painting of pink at the horizon, or enjoy a glass of Champagne at sunset, enjoying the evening lights reflected on the sapphire blue waters of the lake.
Majestic, there is no longer suitable adjective to describe the Grand Hotel Majestic. Besides this wonderful hotel it is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and I could not expect better.
A magical place that seduces and captivates with its beauty.
Built in 1870 has been gradually modernized up to be a fine example of Belle Epoque architecture that collects guests in an atmosphere of refined elegance.
Immersed in the poetry of Lake Maggiore in Pallanza (between Stresa and Verbania), Grand Hotel Majestic offers a unique and exclusive location where you can enjoy an incomparable view on the picturesque waters of the lake and its enchanting islands, as well as stand out for its reborn architectural nobility.
The class and elegance of the atmosphere, the spacious rooms with frescoes, precious silks, marble, the beautiful terrace with the park overlooking the lake, relive the days when the hotel was living by illustrious personalities of the nobility and talented artists, while offering all the comfort and facilities of a modern hotel of excellence.
Surrounded by a lush garden, filled with plants and flowers, Grand Hotel Majestic is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate in one of the prettiest corners of the Borromeo Gulf, where you can stroll admiring the magnificent scenery that surrounds it, to indulge a swim in the bright heated poolof the Welness Centre which overlooks the Lake Maggiore, a refreshing sauna or an Ayurvedic massage.
From the garden, through an elegant stone staircase, leads to the enchanting small private beach overlooking the picturesque San Giovanni's Island, called Island Toscanini, because for years it was the summer residence of the composer and conductor Arturo Toscanini.
The elegantly appointed rooms are bright and welcoming, most of them enjoy breathtaking views of the Borromean Islands and the gulf that takes its name from them, including San Giovanni's Island, where, last summer, Beatrice Borromeo celebrated her marriage. A true delight for the eyes as well as the picturesque view of the lake, given by the large windows of La Beola restaurant, which enriches each menu.
Imagine then a Princess, yours, into her world. With eyes full of charm and herat full of wonder, the real one. With the desire to wear an elegant dress and dance a Viennese waltz on that terrace that made me fall in love.

Pensieri d'autunno e sogni

An escape to the lake to enjoy the first autumn days, those of the yellowing leaves and the wind kissing beneath the leather jackets. It chills the body can not understand. Prosecco on the terrace, the terrace that dives on those waves that soothe and lull just like those of the sea. The hands that weave and arms that are being sought. Eyes that are lost on the horizon and dreams that do not yet exist.
The lakeside walks and the randomness of the evenings. Life that passes and trembling heart.
Blue skies and sunsets access. The time of meditation and withdrawal into oneself. Afternoons at the spa and hot baths.
The desire to go and find out, take pictures with the eyes and with that same heart.
Those of happy thoughts, happiness and the memory of it.
I want an autumn like this: red like love, yellow as the still hot sun in the sky, orange as the sunsets at the end of the day, purple as grape grains to munch.
I want an autumn to discover, experience, taste.

Melià Campione: un week end da sogno

"Fly me to the moon..."
...Thus began, to the tune of Sinatra, my weekend at Melià Campione, 5-star hotel on the shores of Lake Lugano, at Campione d'Italia, shared the province of Como, near the Swiss canton of Ticino.
A romantic and elegant week end, between magic and dream. Actually it seemed to live in a movie, one of those beautiful that leaves you sighing for its entire duration, with dreamy eyes and smile on heart.
A luxury boutique hotel located near the Municipal Casino and a 10-minute drive from the city of Lugano. Beautifully decorated, with an innovative design and a friendly atmosphere. The rooms and elegant airy suites, designed and equipped to ensure maximum comfort with high quality materials in an elegant and contemporary style, surrounded by the Swiss Alps, offering a marvelous view of the Monte Brè or Lake Lugano. Soft chairs for relaxing after a day of work or a day discovering the beauties of the place, with a glass of sparkling wine or an espresso just made.
A small company, it is a boutique hotel, with an air of intimacy and privacy, just as the country where it is located, making it the ideal place for those who want to disconnect from the daily bustle without renouncing to the comforts that life can offer.
The à la carte restaurant offers an extensive range of Mediterranean and Italian dishes. Full and genuine flavors.
The hotel also has a meeting room for 20 people, fully set up and a Spa with sauna, turkish bath and relaxation area that will open shortly.
My weekend of Dolce Vita started with a delicious aperitif followed by an Italian lunch, still heated by warm rays of a sun at the end of September and pampered by the staff of Melià Campione. Strong and lovely flavors of the traditional cuisine of the beautiful country that blend with a wonderful view over the Swiss Alps: the perfect combination for a perfect lunch.
A visit to the village and a walk along the lake illuminated by the sun. Gulls flying here and there, colorful houses, flowers, ducklings and boats filled with tourists.
I strolled through the streets of the village until the evening, breathing the magic of the lake and marveling at every glimpse.
When the sun was preparing to set, coloring of pink, red and orange its sky, waiting for me a private boat on jetty. The finest hour for a romantic tour of the lake accompanied by Champagne and nibbles, enjoying the moment between smiles and chatter, sumptuous villas and the cool breeze caressing the face.
Then return to the hotel and sink into the white sheets, contemplating and enjoying the peace and quiet of the lake now illuminated by the lights of the evening, soak in a warm and relax bath with those same notes of Sinatra in the background...
"Fly me to the moon... Let me play among the stars... Let me see what spring is like..."
An hour later I was at the restaurant of the Casino to enjoy a glass of wine and a delicious dinner of fish, by candlelight, with live music.
After trying the luck and being caught again, on my return to the room, the staff attentions of Melià Campione, I let myself be lulled by the lake and then wake up the next morning, wearing a soft bathrobe, slightly the curtains to start my day with a breakfast with a view. And then... and then off to Lugano and its elegance, with the rain before and the sun after, it made me fall in love. A picture painted by some kind of wonderful brush.
Luxury boutiques, markets, gardens, buildings immersed in that first autumn air that gave it even more charming in my eyes... but I will tell you all these things in the next posts ;)
Melià Campione made me fly to the moon, play with the stars and experience the magic of a dream.

Idee regalo per viaggiatori accaniti

The door, the way: through them the journey begins, often real sometimes imaginary, touching countries, borders, paths, visible and invisible goals. Towards the elsewhere. And at the end of the trip always we find ourselves or a fragment of ourselves. We collect rocks, shells, sand grains. Magnets, bracelets and special objects to remember that place from which we just returned. Because every trip lived three times: when you dream it, when you live it and when you remember it.
Have you ever thought how difficult is to make a gift to those who love to travel? A gift that is not an air ticket for a new journey, of course!
While surfing the web I found Troppotogo, a site where you can find many gift ideas for all tastes, as well as other unimaginable objects. I found right here all the most original and funny gifts.
Guess who has lost the head over the globe to scratch and an instant camera? Of course I, and I'm already in my wishlist!

Tuscany in love

The scent of oleander blossoms and grapes, slowly, mature under the hot August sun, the country chic style, the sun illuminating the clusters, the colors of the countryside, the rows of vines that seem to extend to infinite, and the harmonious succession of fields of wheat and sunflowers.
With that indescribable charm, Tuscany is so beautiful everywhere. But when you consider the Tuscany you can not turn our mind to the rural and unspoilt countryside landscapes.
Hills and slopes, fields, vineyards and olive groves as far as the eye, castles and medieval villages: landscapes and charming villages that are the symbol of the region that gave the natives to Dante.
Immerse yourself in one of the most characteristic landscapes of Tuscany, staying in an estate, one of those in the countryside, with a red roof, surrounded by rows and rows of vineyards and olive groves, where you can not only relax and enjoy the views, but also savor the delicious wines.
Get in touch with the authentically traditional and genuine side of the region, discovering the roots and true passion that animates the inhabitants. Walking between the rows aimlessly, just to listen to nature and its silence. Organize a picnic in the shade of a large oak tree, one of those rustic and homemade, with Tuscan bread, a bottle of red, cheese and cold cuts at will. Falling asleep with the chirping of crickets and wake up with the breeze coming through the windows, that brings with it the smell of salt air mixed happiness.
I dreamed about an holiday like this for years. A peaceful holiday in an authentic Tuscan style.

Capelli castano chiaro

Among the colors of hair light brown is less bold. Maybe. Why be comfortable with this super delicious nuance may seem more complicated than you might think.
The choice of light brown as hair color is back, day after day, in vogue thanks to the varied coloring techniques, such as shatush or sweeping, that made it a must have for women who generally have a light brown natural hair. It will be for its charme but where is the perfect face, with its light and its heat conquer the world.
Light brown hair are especially good for women who have an amber complexion and then a warm undertone. In this case it is best to avoid cold colors and decided to stay on bright warm colors such as light brown on gold or copper tones.

Il sorriso della Toscana

That time I (re)discovered smile and happiness in Tuscany. That true and spontaneous smile.
It is the smile of summer, un and avenues of cypresses and pines. That of sunflowers, sea and its nuances, sunsets that amaze and falling stars.
The smile that allows the soul to breathe, that makes it perfect everywhere. That of dinners with friends and forget alarm clocks, natural hair and salt on the skin. That of happy hour by sea and sky view, which illuminates the eyes and inflames the heart.
  It is the smile started by another smile. That of friendship and love, which comes in the morning and stays on the face until one second before gently close your eyes, between a caress on the cheek and one on the chest.

Shopping? Sì, con RetailMeNot.it

Autumn is time for shopping even if, for us women, every season is an excuse to make new purchases, is not it?

Probably there is some magnetic field that attracts. Yes, there aren't other explanation! Thus, in view of the fall shopping you do, I want to tell you about RetailMeNot.it, the marketplace of discounts.

But that's not all because, in some cases, RetailMeNot.it also offers a real cash back on purchases of certain amounts.

Un week end in baita

A mountain of emotions, colors, smells. This was the mountain for me.
The first light of dawn, the sun's rays that enter from the cabin window and warm cheeks peeking out from the duvet. Pink sky, the "clean", fresh and light air, caressing the face in front of a cup of milk and coffee sipped on the porch with the valley that opens right there, before the eyes. A landscape, that of the Valtellina, which seems painted. One of those paintings full of light and color, where the colors are combined to perfection. The forest green of the mountains covered by pine trees, the bright of meadows wherecows grazing, the yellow of the sun and its rays so close and the blue sky sprinkled with white, fluffy clouds like the snow.
The clouds in the mountains caress the long ridges and peaks. They chase each other like children playing in the meadows. Constantly changing, forcing you to fly with the fantasy.
In the mountains you will find the freedom and peace reigns. The nature manifests itself in all its beauty, including the chirping of cicadas and the murmur of the streams that descend into the valley.
The mountain is made for everyone. For those who wish to rest in peace, as for those looking for an even stronger effort in the rest.
I go up in the mountains, I like the climb. The first steps are hard, the body is fatigued and the breath is anxious. When the wind breaks, fatigue becomes a constant, slow and pleasant motion. Every path, accompanied by the sound of cow bells in the distance, is a journey within ourselves.
The mountain is life. From its top you can see how big the world is and how wide the horizons are.
The mountain is a sunset at 2500 meters, with chills and emotion. A carpet of clouds, looking like a sea, where the sun's rays re-emerge. One of those magical, immense sunsets, as those who embrace you and rob you every word, leaving you displaced, surprised, grateful, in love.
Mountain raises this in the heart, the infinite sense, with the desire to raise the mind to which is sublime.
 The scent of wood and herbal tea for two by the fireplace, between talk, laughter, ginger cookies and the silence that surrounds the valley. The warmth of the fire and its popping sound, an unusual melody that lulls the heart till make you fall asleep.

Louis Vuitton Les Parfums

Imagine the delicate scent of leather, beige, used for the handles and shoulder straps of Louis Vuitton handbags and trunks. Imagine, then, the flower of the Rose of May and the jasmine of Grasse (here). Finally, imagine the aroma of Chinese magnolia and jasmine plantations of Arabia. Mix these precious aromas and you will get a fine fragrance line, that of Louis Vuitton.
A new territory for the Maison but not quite unexplored. Since the creation of its first trunk, in 1854, hover references to the world of perfume. Conceived to protect the most fragile objects during long journeys, these bags showed padded compartments for carrying the perfume bottles without it broke. This led to delicious objects called "Art Edition". After the success of these bottles collectibles, in 1927, Louis Vuitton launched its first real fragrance: Heures d'Absence, followed by Je, Tu, Il; Reminiscences in 1928 and Eau de Voyage in 1946, of which remain intact bottles but not their jus, evaporated over time.
To create new fragrances, seven to be exact, the Maison has relied on the experience and creativity of Jacques Cavallier, appointed Maitre Parfumeur Louis Vuitton in 2012, that from four years travels the world looking for natural materials.
A fragrance for travel, a fragrance to dream.
7 scents for an olfactory journey in luxury and senses:
Rose de Vents: A breath of petals that open new horizons - Faithful traveling companion, the wind rose, or compass, is one of the essential tools for sailors. The Maitre Jacques Cavallier Perfumeur leads us into the heart of a rose of Grasse, where beautiful roses, shook by the wind, seem to breathe. Elegant and majestic, thanks to cedar and iris, this scent is enriched with peppery notes.
Turbolences: A tuberous inviting ecstasy and makes the heart beat - The discovery of distant lands, sometimes it can seem like a journey through the clouds. Inspired by similar feelings at first sight, Turbolences pays tribute to one of the absolute most intoxicating flowers: tuberose, combined with precious jasmine petals.
Dans la Peau: A leather infused, an invitation to explore the senses - Often traveling stimulates desire and Dans la Peau permeates the skin as an indelible ink. The exclusive leather scent is enriched with notes of candied apricot, Grasse jasmine and China sambac jasmine. The absolute notes of narcissus and harmonious agreements musk seal the essence.
Apogée: Lily of the valley that leads to ecstasy - Escape, confronted with the immensity of nature, sometimes you can find yourself. The possibility of entering into communion with the planet to be reborn. Apogée gives this feeling thanks to the fresh lily of the valley: an elixir of innocence. The radiant notes of lily of the valley bind to jasmine petals, magnolia and rose.
Contre Moi: An unexpected vanilla in a deep embrace - Contre Moi commemorates the meeting between two travelers. A profusion of sensuality that leaves quickly emerge emotions. The vanilla from Madagascar and Tahiti come together in a delicate tulle orange flower petals, rose and magnolia.
Matière Noir: A mixture of dark wood and white flowers are invited to plunge into a mysterious world - Exploring the universe is one of the most exciting and adventurous travel fantasies. Solemn notes caress the skin like feathers. Matière Noir probe depth impalpable thanks to a journey through the dark woods such as patchouli and Indonesian agarwood. The notes of agarwood, intensified by the black currant, contrast narcissus and jasmine.
Mille Feux: An incandescent fusion of raspberry and leather creates an ode to light - A golden ray, a starry sky, the northern lights: the light helps to enhance the magic of the trip. To capture this glow, the Maitre Parfumeur Jacques Cavallier use a color. During a visit to the Louis Vuitton workshop for leather processing, he saw a craftsman transform the raw skin-colored raspberry in a refined bag. Glowing skin like a ripe fruit gave him an idea: to associate the smell of leather to that fruit. The composition was then enriched by notes of iris, saffron and osmanthus, white flower from the animal scent and apricot.

Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso: un pomeriggio tra pace e natura

A panoramic staircase of 268 steps to reach the gem of Lake Maggiore: the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso, where the mystic merges with the peace of nature, and the lake with the rock wall form a magnificent backdrop.
Perched on a cliff of rock face overlooking the lake, the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and fascinating scenery of Lake Maggiore.
Art and history are integrated beautifully in a natural setting among the most evocative, almost a balcony that juts out into the Gulf Borromeo, Stresa and the islands.
It founded in the thirteenth century by merchant Alberto Besozzi of Arolo, who, during a shipwreck, vowed to St. Catherine of refuge here in a cave. In 1195 he built a church to St. Catherine of Alexandria as a sign of public gratitude for favors received.
 The Hermitage combines a powerful spiritual energy to a special landscape beauty.
A magical place where time seems to stand still, able to transmit tranquility and peace. The perfect place to get lost to listen to own thoughts and heart. To spend an afternoon getting in touch with nature, soul, ego.

When holidays finished, the air begins to change and the days to shrink, bringing the first colors and flavors of autumn, behold, when it arrives, the month that starts with "S", is like to begin a new year. New projects, new goals, new desires, new dreams. Everything is renewed.
Like every year, I come back from vacation and I wonder: "And now what can I do?"
By nature I am a person constantly moving and changing, I do one thing and while I think of a hundred more. I am not able to sit still, especially with the mind. Thus, in the throes of this continuous need to renew and change, I decided to decorate the walls of my office.

#AtypicalPlaces with Desigual

One evening in August and a gallant date. The sun prepares to set, the light soul and a gust of wind that moves the hair, pulled back into a high ponytail, and emanating floral notes to my every step. A trail that can tickle all the strings of a human being, like a sweet melody that comes out of slender hands, gracefully, skim harp, line after line.
A modern city, decided by the characters, which is preparing to rejoice in the happiest hours. Elegant and refined, like Desigual dress that I wear for the occasion, decorated with many romantic flowers black & white.
Two souls meet, hands that touch and intertwine. A kiss and a smile.
A romantic dinner by candlelight, in one of my favorite restaurants, one of them with a breathtaking view made for dreaming.

San Vincenzo con Camelia Roma

August and the holidays in the beautiful Tuscany. Peace for the soul and wonder to behold.
The landscapes, the blue sea and its scented "water", the medieval villages rich in history and tradition, castles and rural churches, and again, the estates in the countryside, the cypress trees and the endless golden expanses. This is Tuscany, for me. Enchantment and wonder.
A walk to the port of San Vincenzo, one of the most popular seaside resorts of Tuscany, just before a drink in one of the many cafes overlooking the sea. One of those that I like so much, with white fluttering curtains, shells and corals as ornaments and blue cushions to sink into bliss. One of those in which breathe that air of sea.
The finest hour of the day, when the sun has already dried the earth and the salt was impregnated on hair and skin. That same skin become golden and emphasized by a whiteness shirt. A '50s Lady, on vacation, with a wide-brimmed straw hat, to shelter from the still warm sun, high-waisted shorts and a bucket bag made of genuine leather. Black with red interior fabric. Elegant and refined, like the woman who wears it.

Vineyard

The beauty. That of an afternoon in late July in the hills, under the blazing gorgeous sun. The magnificence of nature and its activity in a simple way. A sunrise, a sunset, a starry sky or overcast. A landscape that is being lost. A lovely space, nothing finished and definite, the unripe grape smell and a kitten in the shadow of a vineyard.
The beauty of those who laugh and turn the page. Of those who still believe in something. The beauty of the little things, the simple, genuine, well, true. Because the best things are even closer: the light in the eyes, flowers at our feet, the path of the just fine in front of us, the breath of life.
The beauty of a hug, warm, like the wind in the summer, the most beautiful dress to donate. As one of those to go out with in the evening, long, red. An "important" dress. One of those to leave you breathless.
The charm of two eyes that look at you, chase you, lose into your world, and the beauty of a woman and of her smile. Of her perfumed skin and her laugh. The magic, of a love or a friendship, enclosed in a wire coil. That red and invisible wire that binds two destinies.
The beauty, the real one, is in the eyes of the beholder.

Lavender

As an explorer of soft caresses, light and sweet hugs and cuddles intense as the scent of lavender. A sparkling scent, of fields kissed by the sun and animated by colorful butterflies.
The clear skies and warmth on the skin.
Happiness is chasing among the lavender fields, like children, laughing until become short of breath.
I will return in the immensity of that field, where the warm wind blows in summer and the air fragrant smells of lavender. We'll make bunches, all the same. Maybe one or two wires, and will place them between the pages of a book. Forgotten, as the lost loves.
And when time will have yellowed those pages, one day we reopen them and then we seem to still breathe the nostalgia of a perfume that, sweet filled our breasts.
And we'll be back there, lying on the purple cloud of our memories.

Innamorati

Fall in love with a person who likes to watch you sleep. Who whispers you beautiful words, as if he was singing a slow and unknown song that only in your dreams you can remember. Fall in love with a person who as a first greeting, in the morning, use an "How are you?". Not because you're bad, but because for her the most important thing is that you are well. Fall in love with a person who kisses you suddenly, for no reason, for every time the emotion of a love that surprising. Someone who uses hugs instead of words when you are sad, and that instead of advice, use the beats of his heart to calm down. Fall in love with a person who dedicates you songs every day, because every song reminds you. For this you are a strawberry, a marvelous creature or a nice bitch all in the same day. Fall in love with a person who thinks in a totally opposite way to you, but he always want to listen to your opinion. That spend whole evenings to explain his point of view. That pissed exaggerated if you do not agree and wants to make peace by making love.
Fall in love with a person who makes fun of you, a person that love more laughing than smile. Fall in love with a curious person who likes to travel, he will take you to snorkel with humpback whales, climbing Everest, bungee jumping from the Macau Tower, surfing in Australia. Then he will read Pride and Prejudice under a huge oak tree in England, and you will obviously cry for Darcy and will hate Elizabeth, but only the beginning. You will ride in Andalusia, and will sing you a serenade in an Irish castle. But he'll always remember that his house will be just where they are resting your eyes and your feet, the rest of the world does volume.
Fall in love with a person who knows how to isolate themselves in melancholy of your silence, that understand the importance of a liberating tears. Fall in love with a person who love your freedom, your independence and respecting your choices. But that sometimes makes you an outburst of jealousy, because basically you're his world.
Fall in love with a person who has the best smell of the universe, that you would recognize anywhere, the only one that only you can appreciate. That smell so similar to your emotions. And, in the end, fall in love with that one soul, you'll ever love with all yourself. Do not settle for a mediocre love, a love that is not love. Fall in love because you can not do without it, not because you do not want to be alone.

Château De Mandelieu

I woke up at dawn, with the weight of sleepy eyes, among the crumpled sheets and matted hair, even before the alarm clock. The bathrobe waiting for me, there where I left it the night before. One foot and then the other, on the cold floor, to the window of my room here at the Mimozas Resort (here). Hands on blue cotton, decided to deviate slightly those curtains, just a little, to go out barefoot on the balcony and breathe that air, warm and salty, of a Friday in late May morning in Mandelieu.
Wearing the peach-colored dress, one of my favorites, one of those long and fluttering at the first breath of wind I decided to have breakfast, eagerly, like children on Christmas morning.
Once walked the avenue flanked by a side from the golf courses and on the other by a canal navigated by many boats and ducklings, the sea loomed before me in all its glory, with those calm and turquoise shades. To fall me in love, right next to the port, a castle, that of a princess and her childhood dream, when as a child she enjoyed building sand castles.
Once upon a time... So, as in fairy tales we find ourselves in Mandelieu-La Napoule, so romantic and charming, with its château constantly kissed by the waves.
One of the most charming castles of the French Riviera, built by the sea in 1387 by Villeneuve counts, witness a rather eventful history and makes unique La Napoule beach.
Destroyed and rebuilt several times throughout history, the castle of La Napoule is a gift of love and the dream of a romantic couple; the Clews. Henry, rich heiress of an American banking family, and Marie, a beautiful lady who, with his sensitivity, carved the castle gardens for the pleasure of guests and visitors.
What we see today is the result of the renovation and modification work that Clews have brought to this place. A real spell of works of art, engravings and symbols that, for the most part, were sculpted by Henry Clews as a promise of eternal love for Marie.
