LOVE TO GIVE. HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS.


Christmas is just around the corner and there is no better time then this to start checking your present list. Get in the festive spirit and buy for your little one, if not for yourself, one of Hansa Toys individually handcrafted "true to life" reproductions. Personally I find it hard to resist to such items so each year, a toy inevitably ends up under my tree.

THE SHOPPING BUZZ

Rochas tunic, Maiyet earrings, Rochas oversized jacket, Alexander Birman pumps, Dior shades,What Goes Around Comes Around - Chanel Black Gold Premiere Large Watch and
  Chanel Black Jersey 2.55 9In, Tibi skirt, Rochas envelope, J.Crew loafers

The wrapped skirt some how became the final frontier this season for all stylish women who not only dressed for comfort but also were trying to create a winter wardrobe to remember. Next to it, all they had to add was an oversized sized jacket paired with either a pair of pumps or loafers.
If you are not still convinced, the shopping buzz for this week will clear things out.

THE DREAM BUY

Cashmereblend Coat, Chloé Beige Wool Coat

Nothing beats a good coat. The outerwear hero marks the beginning and the end of the cold season and is the key buy once you managed to find the one that has a timeless appeal.
Visiting the coat department, the three favorites to include in the portfolio are all about understated elegance.

THE STYE DETAIL

VALENTINO FW 2014-2015

Known as the masters of ageless sophistication, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli 
pushed the boundaries this season and allowed us to see that a timeless wardrobe 
can also include daytime pieces. The elaborate creations were all wearing the Valentino signature, they were all following the house's codes but simply displayed another facet of the city of Rome, the one that was the starting point and the source of inspiration for this collection.

LOVE TO GIVE. HOLIDAY ESSENTIALS.



 Just when you thought that the Holidays hopping experience could not reserve you any more surprises, something like a Challenger 350 Jet Experience comes and gives it a complete new meaning. You have two options for takeoff  with the luxurious private airline, an aircraft tailored to your needs (down to your bottled water preference), and the ability to fly further nonstop than any other private aviation company.
Good to get and good to give the present that does not require a wrapping paper will delight both naughty and nice.

BEAUTY CUES. ON THE FABULIST.


Inspired by a witty conversation regarding cold-weather lip balms and which are the best ones 
to use, here's my second option for the season: the Tuberose Lip Heal from Aesop. This is the product to put on the top of your fabulist because it seems to have all the key ingredients to keep ones lips away from that unpleasant dry, chapped and rough appearance. Among them, you can count Avocado Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and Evening Primrose Oil.
