Sustainable Luxury

    It’s been a while since I last shared a blog post. I have been occupied with resting a bit more. I was accustomed to an always-on-the-go life until I decided to introduce incremental moments of rest.  You can expect more skincare, beauty and fashion contents. In this post, I want to explore the idea of sustainable luxury. Sustainability is still an uncomfortable topic in fashion. Millennials say they prefer fashion made in a more ethical and environmentally conscious way. However, we can’t seem to get enough of quick stops at fast-fashion stores. These stores do offer trendy clothes...

Your Guide to the World of Perfumes

Your Guide to the World of Perfumes

I was drawn to a man’s fragrance at a holiday party. The sweet wood sap paired with dry fruits and the vanilla notes in his perfume created a warm, opulent and iconic smell. I shared how lovely his perfume was. He was quick to correct me he was not wearing perfume but a cologne instead. I gladly pointed out that Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille he had on, was not an eau de cologne but an eau de parfum. Our conversation evolved into different types of fragrances.  Ever wonder why one scent is more dominant than another? Well, let's go back to the basics....

Can You Keep a Secret?

Can You Keep a Secret?

I remember my first trip to Victoria’s Secret; I had seen the show on television and I loved supermodel Candice’s ensemble so much I collected my humble student savings and ran to the store. Their mid-year sale followed soon after and I was thrilled to score another gorgeous set. The brand became my go-to brand for all my wonderful secrets.

In the Streets of Milan

In the Streets of Milan

After a wonderful time in Rome, I jumped on a 3-hour train ride to Milan. I was eager to reunite with my oldest and dearest friend Cecilia and we could not choose a better place to meet than this great cosmopolitan city. Milan is one of a kind, it birthed many Italian fashion houses from Prada to Dolce and Gabanna. Milan offers a magic of sophisticated storefronts surrounded by traditional trattorias.  We first stopped for an aperitivo at Duomo dal 1952. We savoured different types of fresh pasta, grilled or sautéed vegetables, and tasty fishes. Next on our list was the Duomo...
