New Year, New Ideas, New Products

Whether you are consciously planning it or not, a new year - and especially a new decade - brings along a host of changes. It is the time of fresh starts, resolutions, plans and new adventures, and whatever facilitates these changes, be it a new outfit or beauty routine, a winter getaway or a meditation session, is most welcome.

Joes and Alfreds: Shine Brighter Than a Diamond!

If someone asked you why you love diamonds, what would you say? Most of us would probably reply, without much thinking, that we love their shine and brilliance, the way they reflect light and fracture it into a million tiny sparkles.

Get Into Your Dream Shape With Dr. Samary

Nowadays, we hear a lot about the importance of self-love. And that's wonderful! I'm a firm believer in loving yourself, no matter what you look like and what you have achieved in life so far. However, I also believe that self-love and self-betterment can and should go hand in hand.

Enlighten Jewelry: Natural Gemstones at Their Best

Wearing natural gemstones makes me feel special. There is something amazing about the fact that these beautiful rocks have formed within the Earth, and that it might have taken them millions of years to become the way they are. Their uniqueness is similar to that of the women wearing them; their colors, shapes and irregularities remind me of my own imperfections that I have come to accept and love.

Give Your Face a Healthy Glow with Spirulina!

Spirulina is a type of blue-green algae widely known as one of the world's most powerful superfoods that is chock-full of nutrients and health benefits. It contains protein, iron, magnesium, potassium, manganese and small amounts of almost every other nutrient, so it is usually taken as a dietary supplement (with great results), but up until now I had no idea that it could also do miracles for your skin!

Foggy Morning


I have always loved calm, neutral colors and soft natural fabrics for winter. Since I'm usually wearing lots of layers, going with this color palette is the best way to make sure all of them match for a harmonious and effortless look.

Eco-Print Silk Scarf

If there's one thing my mother taught me about fashion is that you can't go wrong with well-made. high quality accessories. They will, without fail, elevate your outfit and make you look elegant and put together even if you are wearing a pair of old jeans or mass market clothes head-to-toe. If you have to choose just one thing to invest in in your whole outfit, let it be your most prominent accessory.

Magical Bridal Robes by Taniri Designs

A girl's wedding is one of the most important days of her life, and most of us spend a great deal of time, money and energy on getting everything just right. We spend months searching for our dream dress, scouting locations, coming up with a color scheme, planning the menu, the floral arrangements, the guest list... Everything needs to be perfect!

At Home in the Wild: A Brand to Remind You of the Beauty of Nature

The beauty of wild nature is spectacular in any season. In the winter, however, we tend to spend less time outdoors and forget that we are one with nature and that the best way to recharge our batteries, revive our spirituality and reconnect with the divine is to spend time under the open sky, breathe in the fresh air and take in the colors and smells of the woods, mountains and meadows.

My First Time Using the WowSmoothSkin IPL Laser Handset

Hair removal is such a pain in the neck. I have tried it all: shaving, waxing, plucking, epilating, creams, you name it... and not one of those options is perfect in the long run.

A fusion of smooth reggae jams and modern pop, Kingly T's music is an almost spiritual experience that relaxes you to the core and makes you see your life in a different, much more positive light.

December Online Shopping Destinations

For people like me who hate crowds and fitting rooms, online shopping is a godsend. Being able to buy whatever you want, from any part of the world with the click of a button and having it delivered right to your doorstep is quite possibly humankind's most amazing invention since cell phones.

Nano Jewelry: Where Technology Meets Tradition

When it comes to creating a stylish and refined fashion look, we research the latest trends, choose the right colors, fabrics and silhouettes, put great effort into coordinating the pieces, but in the end what it all comes down to is the details. Sometimes the smallest things can make all the difference between an average outfit and a show-stoppingly amazing look worthy of being on a magazine cover.

Phoenixfire Jewellery: Flame Painted Beauty

Even after years of working with apparel and accessory brands of all kinds, I still get excited when I come across a design that I have never seen before. Sometimes I feel like there's nothing new left for me to discover but thankfully, time and time again, I am proven wrong. 

Get Your Nike Glasses on RX Safety!

Who said you don't need sunglasses in the winter? In most countries even in December there is plenty of sunlight that you need to protect your eyes from. Living in Italy and having light sensitive eyes, I get myself a new pair each fall, much to my Russian mother's surprise ("What are you going to do with them when it's dark and cold?!"). 

Fabulous Lashes by Flash Cosmetics

Many women I know underestimate the power of lashes... which is a shame because they are one of the very few things that can completely transform your face without surgery - and at a very affordable cost, too.

DSD Exclusive: Where Casual Style Meets Art

Few things are as versatile, cool and universally flattering as a classic, high quality white tee. Even if your wardrobe is bursting with the latest, most extravagant fashions in every color of the rainbow and on most days you dress up to the nines even just to go grocery shopping, nothing feels as good as slipping into a soft cotton tee, baggy jeans and comfortable sneakers and rocking an effortless, casual look.

December Favorites

So, this is the last "Favorites" post of the year... and also the decade! It's crazy how it's almost 2020 already, it seems like 2009 was two years ago, am I right?

Red Butterfly: The Symbol of Pure Love

In the past few years it has been fascinating to watch fashion brands evolve beyond pure aesthetics. Today's hippest brands are not just about looking cool but looking and being cool. It is getting harder and harder to impress people with designer duds - what you wear, much like what you do, needs to have a meaning and a purpose.

Sherpa Robe: A Warm Hug for Your Cozy Evenings

Many people are not huge fans of winter. The cold mornings and dark afternoons, the limited options for outdoor fun and fashionable outfits, the awful weather and road conditions.... well, I sort of understand them.

Stylish Home Organizing with Homeze

Ever since I adopted a more minimalist approach to life, I've become absolutely allergic to clutter. I don't tolerate knick-knacks lying around, statuettes, snowballs and the like have been banished from our home, and even loose coins have their place now. 20-year-old me would say that's pretty impressive.

Non-Toxic Versatile Leather Bag by Zwuits - Get Yours at 55% Off!

Today, more and more people are aware of the harmful chemicals that seem to be lurking in everything that surrounds us. We buy organic food because we don't want to ingest pesticides, we use natural cosmetics because we have learnt that some beauty products contain carcinogens, we use safe paint to decorate our houses and make sure that our children's toys are made of natural materials or non-toxic plastic. Or at least we try to. 

Christmas Gift Idea for Men: Quality Grooming Tools

Volumes have been written on how difficult it is to get a thoughtful, meaningful Christmas gift for the men in our lives.

Turns out, all we had to do all along is, ahem, think logically.

Gatto Mariano e il mistero della solitudine

Come genitori, è nostro dovere insegnare ai nostri figli come gestire le loro emozioni, rispondere alle loro mille domande e aiutarli a capire come funziona il mondo che li circonda. I libri da sempre sono nostri alleati in questo compito, che a volte può risultare non esattamente facile, visto che spesso anche noi grandi ci facciamo le stesse domande e ci mettiamo molto tempo ad avvicinarsi alle risposte e a trovare i modi migliori per gestire i nostri sentimenti.

Made-to-Measure Elegance by Adorique

I regularly buy fashion online - more often, in fact, than I do in brick-and-mortar stores, but it did take me a while to get comfortable with the idea of purchasing something I didn't get to try on beforehand. Because no matter how expensive or affordable the clothes, it is the fit that determines how good they look on you and how they make you feel.
