I’m not here, leave a message

Beauty packing for me & him for a long weekend getaway, with just the essentials.
Biotherm Homme “Aquapower” face cream and Eye De-Puffer do the job for hubbie, who can use up to two-three products per day -men are bored so easily that it’s better to keep their beauty routine to minimum.
As for me, I try (hard, it is hard) to pack just the necessary, so here it goes:


Biotherm Aquasource keeps my face skin hydrated for 48 hours, so I don’t really need to take a night cream with me. Luminessence is one of the best products of Giorgio Armani in my humble opinion, a BB cream with SPF 50/PA+++ that lightly covers the skin and leaves it literally glowing. I also use it under the eyes as a brightening concealer, I love it.
Red lips, as always. Dolce & Gabbana “Dora” 5210 lipstick. When I don’t feel like wearing lip colour, Collagenist Re-Plump Lip Zoom by Helena Rubinstein is my alternative, which offers instant plumpness. Anti-drying body milk by Biotherm. And the latest addition to Moroccanoil family and to my beauty case, the Dry Shampoo for a soft, silky feel that can -wait for it- even absorb the salt and moist after the sea. The best dry shampoo in the market.

Safilo Summer 2016

In the country of sun we say: Hello Sunshine!
If you’re in search of new shades you’d better check all the arrivals of Safilo Group:
Gucci, Dior, Max & Co, Fendi, Celine, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs -all the Summer 2016 collections of the hottest brands of the fashion industry paraded at the press presentation the other day, and I found the Gucci cat-eyes to escort me in my brightest getaways this season.

New Shades

Eyewear. Some of the most fashion forward brands currently, are gathered in a very important eyewear company, Safilo Group, that invited us yesterday to see all the new Summer 2013 collections of fashion houses like Dior, Celine, Bottega Veneta, Yves-Saint Laurent, Gucci and Marc Jacobs. I tried on dozens of sunglasses but -given that I’ve grown a small obsession the past few years- Celine were two steps ahead of them all.

protect your eyes with some of the finest sunglasses

a selection of Sonia Rykiel & Dior



this is what i’m all about the last month, sleeping and waking up with south pacific islands on my mind. you could say it’s work and pleasure at the same time.

Prada woven leather shoes and the butterfly sunglasses, Katerina Psoma exotic jewelry, tropical flowers and the “Hula” book by Taschen, all spread on my new (old) vintage formica dinning table.


for your eyes

i took a look at next season’s sunglasses and my favorite trend -coming from last year- is the round lenses, classic 90’s or with a 2011 twist. not too big, neither too small. love them. but if your a cat-eye-sunglasses girl, guess what, they’re here once again, wear them like there’s no tomorrow. Persol and Rayban’s re-editions of basic older models are presented below. put aside for a while your Wayfarers.

Reference 2 : ‘anatomic’
Materials : black or dark turtle acetate, silver or gold  Monel
