I guess I am the only Italian who prefer a full cup of American coffee rather then an espresso....
And I drink tons of flavoured coffees and teas while travelling abroad.
This is a Xmas spiced speciality I am drinking now while in Germany.

Getting ready

Saturday 28 December 2013

I am about to leave for a few days road trip to Switzerland, France and Germany.
On new year's eve I'll be staying in an amazing 4 star hotel by a lake
I have my camera ready for these fabulous days, maps, warm clothes and much happyness and love inside my heart!

Cosy weekend

Monday 16 December 2013

My weekend in two words: low-key. After a period of busy schedules at work and trips, I was looking forward to a quiet weekend at home, spent cooking, catching up with my magazine reading, make those calls I kep postponing and simply enjoying the little things.

I hope you had a beautiful Sunday!

Do you wear white in Winter?
I don't but in the past couple of years I fell in love for this colour.
I may reconsider my fashion statement and start wear something immaculate instead of dark, borings shades.

I do believe happy people are contagious
a positive mind, an optimistic person will bring you joy
start being positive, happy and grateful for what you have
Life will change unexpectedly

Christmas wishlist #2

Saturday 7 December 2013

Dear Santa,

One gift I am expecting to get this Xmas is Advanced Night Repair from Estée Lauder.
You can’t say no.
And mind you, I want the 50ml bottle.

If you are running out of ideas for extra presents, here is a reminder of what else I’d like to receive.

With much appreciation
Ylenia xoxo

le sport très chic #1

Tuesday 3 December 2013

As you probably know me by now, I do lot of sport. But sporty gears are only used at the gym.
Thinking at my busy life and seeing myself always running errands, I have been considering the idea to wear my sporty clothes outside the gym.

Definitely a way to save some time by putting the right combo of elegant and jog pieces and maybe a lovely accessory. So I came across this outfit of Kim, a stylish blogger I follow religiously and LOVED her idea of a casual and dressy look.

I may give it a try myself.....
