A pochi chilometri da Milano si possono visitare delle belle località lungo il lago. Per la gita di ieri ho scelto il paesino di Lenno. Sunday it was a wonderful sunny day, so I went to Como lake, one of the most beautiful lakes of Northern Italy. A few kilometers from Milan, you can visit some beautiful villages along the lake. For the daily trip of yesterday I chose the village of Lenno.
Da lì ho percorso il sentiero del Sacro Monte di Ossuccio, uno dei nove Sacri Monti della Lombardia e del Piemonte che fanno parte della lista del Patrimonio dell'Umanità dell'Unesco.
From there I walked through the path of Sacro Monte di Ossuccio, one of the nine Sacred Mountains of Lombardy and Piedmont that are part of the Unesco World Heritage List.

A rainy day

Missoni umbrella, Marc Jacobs doctor's bag, Mel Shoes rain boots, Rick Owens sweater, Lindex.com trousers, alpace cape, Bina hat, River Island enamel bow necklace

Today in Milan it rains and the temperatures are lowered drastically.   As my Swedish friends say: “there is no bad weather, but only bad clothes”.   So this rainy day has inspired me this look. What could be better than a pair of nice rain boots, a beautiful umbrella, a warm hat to repair your head from the cold autumn air and an alpaca cape to face the rain.

Beauty routine

I can’t believe I will be 41 in some weeks (the 8th November), even if the age has never been a problem for me. While most women close to forty begin to worry about the time that passes inexorably marking their bodies and their faces, fortunately I have preserved the looking of a twenty-five girl. This is the age that most people think I am. Many people ask me which is the secret of my juvenility, but I don’t think there is one in particular. I have never used any make-up except from a thin layer of mascara and a lip gloss and I have never spent my money in the last expensive cosmetics that promises miracles. My beauty routine, in fact, simply consist in washing my face in the morning and in the evening with a mild soap and then applying a good cream and an anti-aging eye treatment. 
As I have a healthy lifestyle, I am very careful in the choice of cosmetics. I always try to choose products made with natural ingredients. One of my favourite brand is Lavera, a German company specialized…

My mother's vintage bag

Image
Recently I'm rediscovering the love for vintage things. How I would like wearing some of the clothes and shoes that belonged to the wardrobe of my mum and that, unfortunately, I could see only in the old family photos. My mother, in fact, had the bad idea to get rid of each garment and accessory, saving only some jewels that I will show you in the next posts and a couple of bags. 
Ransacking in an old wooden cupboard, closed by a small metal key, in the apartment belonged to my grandparents I have found a lovely handbag in white leather, with golden profiles that dates back to the late sixties that now has become mine.
Ultimamente sto riscoprendo l’amore per le cose vintage. Quanto vorrei indossare alcuni degli abiti e delle scarpe che appartenevano al guardaroba di mia mamma e che, purtroppo, ho potuto ammirare solo nelle vecchie foto di famiglia. Mia mamma, infatti, ha avuto la malaugurata idea di disfarsi di ogni capo e accessorio, salvando solo qualche gioiello che vi mostrerò n…
