Must Watch TV Shows (while waiting for Game of Thrones)

I represent that part of my generation that doesn’t watch TV. And no, this isn’t some intellectual decision to bury myself in books. I just don’t watch Italian TV but find myself binge watching tv shows online all the time. No ads, no weekly appointment with a show, and the opportunity to stop and replay whenever. Here are my Must…

Rethinking my Wardrobe

Spring time is dress time for me. Just another reason to not spend time styling tops and bottoms but just throw something over my head and ready to go.  Just last week I watched the documentary Minimalism on Netflix and it made me want to start doing a real spring cleaning this time. The documentary follows Joshua and Ryan, who call…

CastaDiva Como

One of the advantages of living in Milan, or in a tourists case visiting Milan, is the fact that you can reach so many beautiful places just within 1-hour drive. Como is one of the most famous lake towns, and it can be reached within just 30 minutes. Weekends by the lake are one of my favorite times and especially this…

Quattropiume: The Story of a Bag

It has been an amazing experience getting to follow the design and production of my own creation with Quattropiume. One month after my visit to Florence to get to know the brand and the people working on this innovative idea of having customers design their own clutch, I was invited in Milan to follow the production process. When you buy…

Fashion Week

Fashion Trend Primrose Yellow

 When we think of Summer, we picture sunshine and bright colors. Yet, yellow has been viewed as hard to wear, bright color that only supermodels or celebrities can pull off. Maybe it was Beyoncé’s dress by Roberto Cavalli in her Hold Up video, Emma Watson’s classic Belle dress in Beauty and the Beast, the La La Land posters of Emma…

Rahul Mishra From India with Love

Rahul Mishra takes the embroidery trend to a new level with its 3-dimensional hand-made work on dresses. Wearing this dress felt like wearing a pop-up book when with every movement a bird would open its wings and take flight, or a flower would start to bloom.  If you don’t know this new designer that comes from India and just showed…

Spring Beauty

It is that time of the year when the beauty routine needs a change. Adding some new colors of lipstick, starting using sunscreen and getting a glowing face through new highlighters is how I have started.  Here are some of the newly released Spring products that I love.

Spring Rain

As soon as we started celebrating spring it started pouring rain in Milan and the cold is back. We had a week of sun and warm weather to the point that I was having lunch with friends outside while wearing a slip dress and getting all worried that I hadn’t put sunscreen on. 2 days later and is winter again. …

Kat Von D Favorite Makeup Products

Being a makeup lover and living in Italy sometimes is difficult. Beauty brands don’t launch here at the same time they launch everywhere else. Eventually, beauty brands start planning their Europe domination and we finally have access to them. For example, I still buy Carmex and Burt’s Bees products only in the UK, and a few years back I ‘d get…

Clicquot In The Snow

Clicquot In The Snow: A weekend of champagne and snow in Courmayeur with Veuve Clicquot   It started snowing really late in Italy this winter, and it has been like this for the past years. If you don’t believe in climate change just talk to the tourism office anywhere in northern Italy. They’ll explain, how the ski slopes resemble more to the green fields…
