MAC Cosmetics for Teatro Alla Scala

In the times of Greek and Roman theater actors wore masks to portray their characters, that is because they hadn’t discovered makeup yet. Nowadays theatrical makeup is an important art form that shapes characters and gives depth to the performance. So it was no surprise when MAC Cosmetics announced last December that it had partnered with La Scala opera house in…

Jumpsuits are my new dresses

I’ve started counting my jumpsuits and the number is getting very big. Before finding the comfortable life in a jumpsuit I used to wear only dresses, but in winter you need to wear stockings under because of the cold so the jumpsuit became an obvious choice. What I’ve found difficult is finding jumpsuits that can be worn without high heels…

San Cristoforo Rowing

I’ve seen rowers under the burning sun of July and under the heavy rains of November rowing for hours along Naviglio Grande.

I love watching the rowing race at…

As a 7 year old anything seemed possible so I…
