Armonia at Castello Belgiogioso, a slow fair to take care of your health, spirit and inner beauty

Holidays! While the majority of us Italians are spending the first long weekend of summer at the seaside, I decided to go relaxing at the Armonia Festival hosted by the beautiful Castle of Belgioioso, not so far from Milan.

There I lost myself into the harmonious vibe coming from all over the places, dancers, musicians, qi-gong, masseurs, and…



A mind-blowing approach to healthy and natural sleeping… Check out Pedano, true excellence for your back, body and rest.










Walter and his didgeridoo, music for the soul from the traditions of Australia.



My eco-friendly outfit today is made of second hand clothing, social impact necklace Bead for Life (which I told you about a few days ago here), handmade hay wallet – a souvenir from my spiritual trip to Thailand and my fave healthiest shoes ever Vivobarefoot.

Until next time,

Take care 🙂

Waiting for Toms

Chances are Italy will be one of the last countries of Toms’ takeover. Toms “Shoes of tomorrow” is the ultimate social brand promoting a so called “one for one” movement – for every pair you purchase, they’ll give a new pair of shoes to kids in need.

This year they started a similar project related to poverty and eye diseases launching a new eyewear set.

This photo is kindly reproduced from Briant Hom website, an eclectic artist very keen on Toms’ mission, so that he designs original unique pieces inspired his colored sprays. Cool.

Read the One for one report here.

Tutto il mondo impazzisce per le Toms, mentre l’Italia sta a guardare. L’idea di fondo somiglia alla legge del taglione, ma invece di essere “occhio per occhio, dente per dente” è “uno per uno” ovvero uno ti dò, uno mi dai: the one for one movement è nato per regalare un paio di scarpe ai bambini che ne hanno bisogno.

Nei primi tre anni di attività Toms ha donato più di 1.000.000 di scarpe in 23 paesi. Da quest’anno ha sviluppato la linea di occhiali da sole per aiutare le persone affette da problemi visivi gravi. 

L’artista californiano Briant Hom, come tante altre celebrities, ha sposato la causa del movimento esprimendo la propria ispirazione tra bombolette e colori con modelli unici e originali. Fantastici.

Kimono pants


Giappone, mon amour. Yoshina Takenaga, brillante studentessa di fashion design, ha trovato un modo per trasformare vecchi e scomodi kimono non più utilizzati in comodissimi e moderni pantaloni per ragazze. Viva il riciclo creativo! • Japan, mon amour. Design student Yoshina Takenaga transformed old unused kimono  into cool trousers. If anyone has ever tried to wear a kimono… well… from tightness peak to absolute comfort! Enjoy creative recycling. •  日本は大好きです。山口県のよしなたけながと言うデザイン学生は古い着物を再利用しました。素敵な女性のズボンになったそうです。創造的な着物のリサイクルでしょう。
