Bvlgari’s Fiorever, a New Icon Is Born

With Bvlgari, it’s all about that unusual flower that brings joy and sparkle. Knowing a thing or two about what women love in jewelry, the Roman house unveils its new “Fiorever” collection and redefines bold diamond fine jewelry in its own language. This collection, which brings together the Italian word “Fiore” – which means flower – and the word “forever”, honors natural beauty in the everyday through pieces that reflect an unrivaled craftsmanship and audacious creativity.

Being the emblem of Roman passion in life, this four-petal flower becomes immortal through enchanting diamond creations that cater to every woman’s style. In fact, this motif decorates many vestiges of the Roman Empire, from the garden frescos of Villa di Livia to the sculptures of Palazzo Massimo and the ceiling mosaics of the Santa Costanza Mausoleum – to name a few. However, it blooms in this collection through a combination of precious gold and sparkling diamonds to celebrate timeless beauty, contagious joy and most importantly, the Fiorever woman.

To depict the spirit of this new collection, Bvlgari chose Úrsula Corberó. After amazing people with her stellar performance in Netflix series, La Casa de Papel – known in English as Money Heist – the Latin actress stars in the campaign shot by acclaimed photographer Mario Sorrenti, exuding her positive energy and spreading her joy for life and lighthearted spontaneity all over the place – just like any quintessential Fiorever woman would do!

Clean Makeup Brushes… the Right and Easy Way!

We know, makeup brushes tend to become super gross, and even then, we’re either too lazy to clean them, or we just simply keep forgetting to do so. If this is the case with you, it’s time to give them a good, nice cleaning! Now you’re probably thinking about the load of work that awaits you, but sit back and relax as we’re going to give you some tips that will take care of your dear makeup brushes and, we’ll show you how damaging it is for your skin to keep using a dirty makeup brush over and over again!

  • Start off by running hot water on each brush individually.
  • Dip it in a bowl containing gentle shampoo and gently rub it with your fingers for a few minutes. I know, this sounds tiring but it’s actually good for your expensive brushes, as well as for your skin!
  • Afterwards, run some water on them again for another minute.
  • Some brushes take more time to become sparkling clean, so don’t hesitate to repeat the process.
  • If your brush is clean to perfection, squeeze out the water from it and let it dry on a towel by laying it flat. Avoid at any price stacking your brushes on top of each other in order to let them dry properly and keep the weird smell at bay.

Last but not least, when investing in good brushes, opt for synthetic ones as they are low-maintenance, easy to clean and long-lasting.

How to Wear Your Sneakers This Season – The Street Style Edition

Perhaps one of the most comfortable shoes a woman can wear are a good old pair of sneakers. That said, there was a time where these comfy shoes were not necessarily wardrobe mainstays. Indeed, women would keep sneakers for more athletic purposes, such as going to the gym or going for a quick jog. Instead, they would all go for ballerinas, pumps or sandals to elevate their looks.

Fast forward to today, the fashion industry has shifted towards a more relaxed state-of-mind – ergo, mixing style and comfort in one big pond of fabulousness. Of course, nothing can stand the test of time without the endorsement of the world’s biggest brands, such as Dior, CHANEL, Gucci, Off-White, Balenciaga and so many more big fashion houses. For the past few years, we’ve all witnessed a surge in popularity in the sneakers world, and It-girls, bloggers, influencers and models have all been embracing the trend with arms wide open. And so, we all know the drill: the quirkier the outfit, the better. The trick is to mix and match genres and styles – mini-skirts with dad sneakers, flirty dresses with espadrilles and shorty shorts with high-top sneakers.

To get you inspired, we’ve scoured a series of street style pictures that will show you how street stylers are wearing their sneaks this season.

Give me some Vitamin D!

Why would you ask for vitamin D? Just hang out in the sun, and you’re good, right? Wrong!

Chances are you are lacking Vitamin D (unless you are a lifeguard or poolman). Unfortunately, since we spend so much time indoors nowadays, people of all ages and yes even our babies, all need an extra dose of Vitamin D. Now don’t go out and buy it unless you have done a blood test confirming it, but don’t be shocked at the results when you actually get a test done.
So, what does Vitamin D do and why do we need it? Let me start off by saying I am not one to pop vitamins left and right, but this is one I take every single day and took throughout my pregnancy as well. I also give it in liquid form to my daughter every day. I can get all scientific on you, but in a nutshell it’s good for your bones. It also helps with cell growth, your immune system and reduces inflammation. I know what you are thinking, can’t I just eat it? Well there are only a few foods that naturally contain Vitamin D; fatty fish, beef liver, cheese, and egg yolks and some mushrooms. While yes, these are things which are probably found in our diet, especially the cheese, chances are we still aren’t getting enough. So, go get that blood test, and let your nutritionist or doctor give you the Vitamin D you need. Added bonus of Vitamin D? It reduces depression and helps you lose weight.
