GUCCI BLOOM

GUCCI BLOOM

Santa has been good this year! As you saw from the pics I’ve got the newest perfume launched by Gucci, that’s called Bloom. Just reading its name you can really get its floral vibes, in fact it has notes of jasmine, tuberose and rangoon creeper, that’s a Chinese honeysuckle. A mix that won me over since the first time I got to smell it, so you can understand who happy I was when I saw this! It’s not easy to describe, as it is different from every other floral perfumes I have ever tried, included the other Gucci’s; you have to smell it and then you’ll understand what I am talking about right now!

But it’s not just about the perfume itself, the packaging its also so nice and catchy. From the bottle that’s light pink with fine lines (it somehow makes me think of old perfumes containers with a twist of modernity) to the outside box that has an amazing red and white pattern with flowers, leaves, little branches and butterflies.

So thumbs of for Alessandro Michele’s first perfume with Gucci! Do you guys like it? let me know!

BJÖRK SWEDISH BRASSERIE

BJÖRK SWEDISH BRASSERIE

Discovering new places where to eat is a joy for myself, I love eating and I love trying different types of cuisines. As you already know I love everything that’s Scandinavian, so a lunch at this Swedish Brasserie was necessary. Just looking at it through their website gave me that hygge feeling, so a good and cozy impression for its warm design and obviously also for their food offer.

Once you get there, the place really welcomes you with its candles and typical products on the shelves, making you feel like you are a little bit more in the North! Also, it is located in the central area of Porta Venezia, so easy to reach with a little talk from the really known Duomo square.

Their lunch offer is among different kind of dishes, and we decided to go for the salmon and meatballs that are such classics that you can never go wrong with them!

So if you are thinking about trying out new bistros in the city, I really suggest you to give it a try and I hope you’ll it as much as I did.

BERET

BERET

Berets, caps and beanies are what winter is all about, and it makes me so happy ’cause I love wearing them and seeing who people decide to styl them in different ways! They can give a simple outfit more character, making it so much more interesting while still keeping you warm. Just think about a pair of jeans, sweater, sneakers and bam a red beret… it’s done and it’s super!

And that’s why I would always go out my red one! You can really see it as a statement piece of you everyday attire.

Searching for nice berets on the net let me to a selection of some with different materials, colors, patterns and styles. Here are some of my favorites!

ON MY MIND – Urban Outfitters edition

ON MY MIND – Urban Outfitters edition

As probably all of you already know, a few days ago the first Urban Outfitters store opened in Milano…finally! And I underline that finally, as it took a lot of time (read it as: years) for the brand to actually open a store that can be called like that. Before there was just a little tiny corner of the brand at the Rinascente, a department store, but didn’t have a lot of items to be honest.

So I’ve thought about drawing up a sort of f wishlist with all the clothes/accessories/nice things and so on that you can find at the store! They have plenty of brands and products so choosing among all of them has been quite hard, since I do like a looot of things there!

So, enjoy and tell me what you would/are going to buy there!

  1. BDG Burgundy Velvet Puddle Trousers: velvet is quite a huge thing this season, you can basically find it everywhere. These burgundy ones have slightly wide leg, they are minimalistic but at the same time really catchy for the eyes!
  2. Vintage Inspired Twisted Texture Chunky Rope Hoop Earrings: I would wear hoops everyday, mostly if they are simple yet not too much like these vintage inspired pair.
  3. Elephant Tea Mug: just image yourself, under a blanket sipping tea or a cappuccino from this amazingly cute mug!! It’s a yes!
  4. Mario Badescu Mask + Mist Duo Set: if feeling purified with the cucumber mask and refreshed with the facial spray with cucumber and green tea is what we need, then those two products could be perfect!
  5. Urban Outfitters Geometric Half-Zip Mock Neck Jumper: geometric patterns and the half-zip mock neck gives me somehow a cosy-coolish vibes! The touch of red is amazing!
  6. Dress Scandinavian by Pernille Teisbaek: If you know me you already know I am huge fan of Scandinavian countries, from their way of life, to their traditions, interior, food and last but not least of their style! So this book couldn’t not being featured in this list!
  7. iets frans, Slogan D-Ring Belt: what can I say about this belt? I am in love and can’t wait to get a hold of it!
