Believe me when I tell you that having long hair is a lot of work. Washing, drying and combing it every other day takes up a huge part of my free time, treating it with hair masks and oils to prevent split ends and keep it healthy is a hassle, dying it takes three hours (and a half) and a ton of money, and when you're unfortunate enough to have a bad hair day, you really have a bad hair day.

When it comes to make up I am a very picky girl. I use more or less the same products all the time and I don't like to experiment a lot. With that being said, I was really excited to try the mineral make up sent to me by Mineralissima cosmetics, because they are made of natural ingredients, have no chemicals whatsoever and are not tested on animals - and I'm so glad I did, because they didn't disappoint.

I'm definitely not the kind of girl that you will see in sweatpants too often, unless I'm at the gym, but when one is in the mountains I guess it counts as a sort of athletic activity, so this kind of attire might be excused, or even considered appropriate. For a day at the lovely Auberge De La Maison hotel in Courmayeur I wore a pair of harem sweatpants, my new Blackfive sweatshirt with a raised pattern and my trusty studded high-tops. I accessorized with a jewelled leather baseball cap I got in Ibiza a while ago, a classic Missoni scarf and my brand new leather and steel bangle by Italian brand Maineli. It's a very unique and modern design that goes well with both casual and elegant looks and which I'm really happy with. Also, it's made in Italy, which is always a plus. Let me know what you think about this unusually sporty look and have an amazing weekend!

I love early fall nights. They are full of anticipation, a strange feeling of excitement for what's to come, even if we don't know exactly what is it we are waiting for. While mentally preparing myself for the colder months, I love to plan fall and winter events and imagine what I am going to wear. This season I am really hoping to go Vienna to attend the Opera Ball or the New Year's Eve Ball - we were planning to go to the latter last year, but had to cancel in the last minute. A ball is the perfect occasion for ladies to wear long formal dresses and feel like princesses, and I think that feeling is priceless. Pretty formal dresses for women are like drugs and I'm definitely addicted... This post is dedicated to a selection of special occasion gowns from Tidebuy.com for those magical fall and winter nights. Let me know which one is your favorite!

As I told you a few posts back, I'm spending a few days in Courmayeur, right at the foot of Mont Blanc, the tallest peak in the Alps. It's a truly magical place with breathtaking views around every corner. The warm hospitality of the staff in our hotel, Auberge de la Maison, is definitely making our trip even more memorable. Just imagine waking up in the morning to a breakfast prepared with amazing local ingredient, fresh bread and homemade pies filled with jam made with the fruit that grows in the garden right in front of you and eat it all while looking at the sparkling white snow on top of the Mont Blanc. Oh yeah...

You can't really go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans and a black T-shirt. I always keep these pieces ready for busy or lazy days - you can basically accessorize this look with whatever you want, it's a perfect blank canvas. For a day in Forte dei Marmi I chose and oversized silk scarf in a vivid burnt orange color, a pair of everyday heels with a cleverly hidden platform and piled on some vintage jewelry. Let me know what you think and have a great weekend! ;)
