Giovani e belle con Alchimie Forever

The skin is the calling card of our beauty: a mirror that reflects our inner life, our moods, but also the ability to take care of ourselves. Wrinkles, in fact, are a "spy" of our personality: who laughs often has crow's feet, who mortify instead the "dire" horizontal furrows on the forehead. Have you noticed that happiness makes us "to change" face? It relaxes muscles and tissues, on the contrary, anxiety and fatigue cause a contraction of the muscles which decreases the blood supply to tissues and brings up the more wrinkled skin.
To stay young for a long time we must not abuse our bodies and adopt a healthy lifestyle. Longevity depends for 60% on the individual genetic heritage and 40% by lifestyle and by the action of heat, cold, wind, smog and smoke.
The creams help delay the onset of the signs of aging and protect the skin from external agents. The cosmetic, in fact, make elements that maintain the vital skin, favoring the production of new collagen and elastin and improving microcirculation. In this regard I want to tell you about Alchimie Forever, particularly the cream that I'm using: Alchimie Forever Kantic + Intensely Nourishing Cream.
This ultra-nourishing cream, rich in emollients such as jojoba and vitamin E, moisturizes and reduces the appearance of wrinkles. natural antioxidants derived from blueberries and grape seed reduce redness, and red clover, however, rich in natural estrogens, lifts the skin and, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, restores its youthful elasticity and resilience.
A unique formula for eternal youth ;)

How To Be A Gentleman: come arricchire un abito con gli accessori

"Anyone can be heroic from time to time, but a gentleman is something you have be all the time." 



The figure of the gentleman has increasingly been underestimated in recent times. It tends more to survive than to live with dignity, now to the gentleman we associate beautiful clothes and nothing more.
We were wrong: we speak of history, the British aristocratic figures, etiquette and rules to abide forever. We speak of an icon of a lifestyle.
We analyze the most superficial appearance, but not least: the dresscode.
A suit, a shirt, a pair of stylish shoes are not enough; what makes the difference is the attention to detail and in this case accessories can help a lot.
Here are some hints and tips that can enhance your look or avoid exaggeration:
-Tie, bow tie: normally the tie to wear is that of classic cut, no fine cuts or dental floss, the style is classical, you are not kids.
Sober colors that attract an item worn (no shirt) or, at most, completely detaching from suit and shirt.
If the opportunities being satisfied, and you wore the right item (smoking) the bow tie is preferable, strictly black and white shirt.
-Pocket Pochette: always match to the tie, the reminder must be there always.
-Watch: the watch is an important must to the man's wrist (although the gentleman preferred the pocket watch); it must have an "important" case, sober colors if possible, to be matched with what you wear.
-Bracelets: the current trend sees the bracelets as a necessary and vital accessory, my advice is: "anything goes as long as you do not overdo it!".
By the way you have a wide range of choice, with carved stones, metal, provided they are sober together.
-Rings: Ladies and Gentlemen, we are no longer in the '800, unless you're blue-blooded and do not need to seal the wax to your edicts and letters would avoid similar horrors on your hands.
-Tie clips: interesting and indispensable accessory, whether in steel, gold or silver, it gives that touch of care and order to the appearance. Need!
-Cufflinks: another detail not to be overlooked! Questionable sober cufflinks: nothing funny animals or favorite food.
-Sunglasses: strictly vintage, if possible tortoiseshell or black-framed: sobriety at first!
-Belts and braces: the second one a little outdated even though they might give a retro look, the first are more debatable. Absolutely fine and smooth to retrieve the shoes worn, no hype or fancy buckle on the workings and the body belt.
For the rest: the right length trousers, no socks in sight, the jacket in the right size, hair and well-groomed beard.
Last but not least, always remember that a gentlemen is also and above all in manners, and that clothes do not make the monk.

Underground Tale

When the perfect life, perfect does not seem.. When the trappings, the attention to detail, tired .. When certainties that seem solid, flake, crumble, lose consistency, importance.. We take refuge in a parallel world to measure us although the truth is that, in the life of every day there are no castles, but skyscrapers, palaces. The palace is a sprawling city, the secret are actually underground subways.
In all those experiences in which our being is pushed to the limit of potential, and in addition, in those cases we understand that there is no detail goes overlooked, neglected. I speak not of the usual accessories, but all that is living.
In the everyday hectic passing we often lose awareness of what really matters, what really needs to be preserved, guarded.. Our happiness, our security, our person.

#IAMPOISON - Dior cocktail party

"I am not a girl, I am poison"

One Thursday evening, February 4. The new fragrance by Dior, Poison Girl. Four cities and four exceptional location: L'Archivio Storico in Naples, the Coco Loco in Rome, the Fashion Café in Milan and the One Apple of Turin.
An exclusive party, to discover the new fragrance by Dior and the cocktail created in collaboration with Belvedere, Belvedere Poison.
Poison Girl. Much more than a perfume, a reminder of senses so strong to create havoc. An ode to the rebellious beauty, the smiles and the attitudes of extreme freedom. A perfume for those who can lead, for those who live it so casually and bold, for those who walk free on the streets of the metropolis, playing chase and let chase, in a nightlife without beginning or end.
A scent that speaks of a sexy, cool, scratchy, cheeky soul but always feminine.
"Poison Girl is a delicious reminder", a poisonous and delicious floral, "a sensual trap that avoids the sweet notes too sugarcoated. That torments and upsets the senses."
And so, on that Thursday evening in Turin, between electronic music and bitter orange fragrance, tonka bean, rose and vanilla, I let myself be seduced by the flavor of Belvedere Poison cocktail, letting me steal the heart from the new Dior fragrance that hovered in the air, intoxicating rosy talk of all the poison girls.

Alsteca sunglasses

21 grams is the weight that you lose when you die, they say that it is the weight of the soul. That light and impalpable feather remains between the here and now and the unknown, what will be once you cross that threshold. 21 grams is the weight of things done and those left open, the amount of breaths and sighs, the sum of all tears or smile, of every "if" and all "but". Of each door "open" or "slamming", of every love and every passion, every carelessness or distraction. 21 grams is the account of a life, sometimes lead, sometimes butterfly.
 21 grams, as the weight of a hummingbird, of a chocolate bar or five nickels one over the other. But what 21 grams are worth? And why 21? If it was a smaller number?
Can it save the result of so much wonder in something even lighter?
16 grams is the weight, not of my soul, but the new Alsteca sunglasses. The beautiful country has yet been able to surprise us, giving us another marvel!
The low weight would think of a weakness inherent in the product, but in the era of the technological advent "special effects" were not long to coming. The secret of these sunglasses, in fact, lies in polycarbonate, a material capable of high flexibility, innate strength and fracture toughness.

Caffè Ristorante Sangiacomo, ed è subito Parigi!

In the historic center of Tortona there is a cafe restaurant that takes us back in time: the Caffè Ristorante San Giacomo.
The restaurant takes its name from the ancient Via San Giacomo, the way that is now named Lorenzo Perosi, famous author of the original sacred music of the city. St. James the Elder, Apostle of Jesus of Nazareth, is the protector of the Pilgrims; his body is buried in Santiago de Compostela.
In a picturesque setting, the Caffè Ristorante San Giacomo allows "secular devotion" for a kitchen that selects raw materials by accredited producers.
Behind an elegant iron gate, in an old courtyard, a glass greenhouse and many tables in the garden, where you can dine by candlelight, wrapped in a romantic atmosphere.
Dine in the beautiful greenhouse allows you to enjoy the refined and warm decor, with attention to detail from Gabriella Cuniolo, well known in the environment of interior design.
A wide choice of à la carte dishes or alternatively a bistro menu. The elegant and original presentation of dishes is accompanied by the quality of the proposed foods, in line with the culinary tradition of the territory. The wine list is also very good and enhances the wineries of Tortona hills above, but also offers a wide selection of international wines.
From the first moment the atmosphere is romantic and peaceful, hard to forget. It almost seems to be in a Parisian bistro... just missing her, The Seine!

Il segreto è scovare la rarità fra la volgarità

People change their mind so quickly that not even worth trying to give too much explanation.
One day they loves you, one day hate you, when you have not done anything nor changed attitude.
Often have a morbid interest in the lives of others, puts their mouth on everything, they would like to decide for yourself. Therefore, with regard to your personal space, fill it with what you like, pay no attention to anything else.
Today bites and escapes with the rush of our age, we want everything with ease, we search for compromise and instead only what grows slowly dig deep and really puts the roots. The secret is to find a rarity among the vulgarity, the scent that sweat, when you earn your life.
This waste any craze with people who can not appreciate us should end. Because in the end, when finally you are okay, do not confuse love with dignity. Dignity is something diametrically opposed to pride. Never allow anyone to get used to your presence. Personal safety is not swinging and disappear to arouse attention or come back when you have visited the most beautiful places. We are not a parking of hearts broken down. But courage is to continue own way. For many give is an indication of stupidity, to me is the essence of life. I give you all of me but I also take back everything necessary. This whenever those who have close stops to give me value.
So I looked at her, she asked me: "What can I do for you?" I replied: "Love me, if you can. If you can not, let me go." (M. Bisotti)
