A last minute trip to Paris

1 paris-dailybreakfast.net

I first met Valentina in Venice last July. We were invited by The Gritti Palace for the opening of the Terrace designed by Riva.
I was running late and I caught the train few seconds before departure. Since then we met a couple of times before she called me, at the end of October, to ask me if I want to join her on an upcoming trip to Paris. And by upcoming I mean the week after that call!
Of course I said YES! You can find a reportage of what we did/ate/drank on her beautiful curated blog Tintacorda and on my instagram.

48 hours in London

48 hours in london dailybreakfast.net

I love London and I was so lucky to get there at least once a year since 2007.
The first time I took a plane to get there was for my first London Book Fair, and I almost missed that flight because… well, I forgot my ID at home. :-/
Then my photography courses at Central Saint Martins and the Food Blogger Connect. Now, any excuse is good to go back every time I can.
Last week I was there for 48 hours. Just enough time to meet my friend Nina and have a cup of tea with Jo – she claims she is just a writer but give a look at her instagram feed to contradict her! – a walk in Shoredicth and a goodbye to the Tower Bridge kissed by the sun.

Till next time, my beloved London.

A conversation between two friends

1 skinius-dailybreakfast.net-ko-bulon-thailand-

This is a story about a conversation between two friends and some respect for ourselves.

Last September I was invited to join a food shopping experience in Venice and there I first met Virginia, a young woman passionate about food.

I don’t remember why – probably she noticed my addiction to my lip balm – she talked about Skinius and how she was impressed by the quality of their products.

Few days later we met again at a dinner party and the first thing I told her was “I’m sorry I know I have an ugly face tonight but I had a bad allergic reaction to a face cream”.
She was really nice and just replied: “Ok, trust me. You have to try Skinius and then you will tell me what you and your skin think about it”.
So, she introduced me to Alice and then I had the opportunity to meet Mariagrazia, the founder of Skinius. It was [not so] funny to discover that her decided to build a product for herself because, just like me, since she was young her skin refuses most of any products. She, like me, needs to perfectly balanced the water temperature of the shower to avoid itch. She, unlike me, is a biologist.

I tested their products for one month on my own skin, and to be honest I’m more than impressed. My mother would be happy to know that finally I have no more addictions to lip balm.  Now, I use Noagy just once a day.

Also, when I had to pack my bag for Thailand and Laos I decided to leave at home all my lotions, solutions, day cream, night cream and bring only the Serum with me.

Yes, this is a sponsored post but I wanted to be sure about the quality of Skinius products before publishing. I won’t recommend skin products if I did not think they are good for real for my skin, first.
If you are giving them a try, let me know your thoughts!

A toast from Terrazza Gallia - Panettone Cocktails

Few days ago I had the pleasure to shoot the aperitif – or a sweet after dinner – for the festivities at Terrazza Gallia, the Rooftop Bar of Excelsior Hotel Gallia.

If you are in Milan you cannot miss a winter cocktail with the view from the rooftop and a slice of Panettone, a kind of sweet bread loaf originally from Milan. It is traditionally made with raisin and candied orange zest, but even if I’m from the homeland of oranges, I prefer the chocolate one. And if you like Gin as much as I do try the Jingle Gin cocktail for a perfect pairing. – Cheers!

Changes and sunlight

I found this photograph while cleaning my archive. So many things changed since I took this shot in Cacela Velha, a small and colourful town in Algarve.
Personal changes and professional challenges.
I am grateful for the people I have met in these past months and I look forward to new adventures.

A reportage of my travel in Portugal was published on Food and Wine.
