I have always appreciated the quote “Invest in your hair, is the crown that you never take away” because the care for ourselves is the best investment we can make.
Whether it is a necessary “cure” or a rewarding cuddle, the time we give to us comes back amplified. As you know by now, my passion for niche fragrances is constantly growing, as well as for beauty in general, always niche.
Danielle Ryan is the icon of the modern and contemporary woman. A true example of woman empowerment, businesswoman and a successful entrepreneur.
In 2014, Danielle launched in Ireland the brand ROADS, that consists of three companies dedicated to luxury fragrances, book publishing and film production.
ROADS is focused on minimalistic design, storytelling and a free and creative way of thinking and living.
For the launch of the new scents line ASIA, I had the pleasure to have a talk and beautiful interview with Danielle about the line, the brand itself and her.
Nothing can be more personal and intimate than your scent.
The fragrance describe yourself before you enter a room and can tell a lot about you without speaking.
If you are following me on Instagram , you already know that I am focusing on niche fragrances labels and boutiques and a few weeks ago I had a beautiful experience with Avery Perfume Gallery that is still up in my Instagram highlights.
There is a place in the world I feel to belong to.
A place where I feel completely myself and is like my soul is returning to full life again.
And is Paris.
Every time is a new adventure and discovering new places and things and last time I stayed there, I had a breathless experience with Le Royal Monceau.
During Spring, the redoubtable change of clothes in the wardrobe causes so much pain to lot of people.
Personally for me is always an occasion to make a funny game… The Take & Toss. Did you remember the scene from Sex and City? It was when Carrie call at home Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda in order to help her to put all her clothes in boxes before move. Obviously Carry didn’t wanna to take everything with her and here comes her three friends and they make fun together deciding what to keep ( TAKE ) and what to throw away ( TOSS ).
Christmas time is just a few nights away and the run to the gifts is already started.
When it comes to buy a present for your boyfriend/girlfriend, family, friend or party hosts the search can be very difficult and it can require no rush and some slow time.
Le Labo is one of my favorite brands regarding scents, bath and body lines. And a gift from them will be definitely appreciated for its preciousness and beauty.
For those who are not familiar to Le Labo, the products are totally handmade with raw ingredients from Grasse, in order to produce natural essences, that are perfect for both men and women. I started to try Le Labo the moment I read this scent they wrote :
“We believe that there are too many bottles of perfume and not enough soulful fragrances”
Nothing more true and I totally agree.
For the party hosts The Discovery Sets or The Body Lotion and Shower Gel Set are the perfect presents matched with a bottle of rare wine and one of Le Labo scents, like the renowned Santal, is a glamorous touch added to a main gift.
Paris for me is always the place to be… during the whole year and especially during the fashion weeks.
When I have to reach the city in the fashion month I already know that I will have in front of me busy and hectic days and it becomes fundamental to leave Italy in the most relaxing way. I have to recharge the batteries and have some time for myself only to think.

Desigual is the renowned Spanish brand that everybody loves for its playful and energetic attitude.
This year the wind of change has hitten the label that, surprising all the fashion system, has named Jean-Paul Goude as creative director. But this won’t be the only task of the histrionic Goude, he will take care of every perspective of Desigual, from productions creation to events and marketing activities.
Jean-Paul Goude is a French illustrator and director. He was also the artistic director of Esquire New York in the 70s and he was worked for several famous labels such as Perrier, Citroën, Kodak, Chanel and Shiseido.
The first collection signed by Jean-Paul Goude for the Spring/Summer 2018 was presented during New York Fashion Week .
The catwalk marked a big turning point for the Desigual, that is restylling its image, but the fans of the label were not disappointed about it has the pieces presented continued to mantain the features that makes Desigual famous around the globe… Unconventionality, genuineness and positivity!
As David Meire, operational director of Desigual, said “ The artistic collaboration with Jean-Paul Goude represents a step forward in Desigual’s will to allow talents of countless disciplines to contribute and enrich the diversity of the brand thanks to their amazing works”
My personal thoughts about the collection is that I see a more mature Desigual, a Desigual that is reaching another dimension. Inspired by the jungle, every print overlaps the other in an harmonious and carefree dance. Fluid and stratified shapes are amalgamated on raffia, cotton, leather and denim. The multicolor sneakers and the raffia anklet become a must to have for the next season.
I will definetely continue to follow Desigual and Jean-Paul Goude in their new successful path.
I am not a Summer person.
Okay let me explain, I love the sun, the breeze and the color of the season but I don’t love so much the obsessive heat that sometimes Summer carries with it. I like better the chilling ending part of the season and those fresh Summer night where you can wrap yourself in a soft cozy blanket.
This is why, every season, I never miss the chance to get a new one and, for this year, I bring with me one of the most beautiful I have ever had!
With an effortlessy chic, glamorous and super cool style, my Hayley Menzis Portobello blaket is become my favorite ever! The zig zag print and the pompom made it really eye-catching and perfect to be styled with every look, from the most basic to the most elegant one. It add an ultra plus of charme, sophistication and bold attitude.
And ( best news for you! ) all her blankets are now on SUPER SALE so this is the right time to grab yours home. In addition, I have seen a preview of the Fall Winter collection and it left me speechless and amazed, you will love it as much as I did.
