The world’s most beautiful beaches

The world’s most beautiful beaches. Hands up who wants to go to the seaside? Hands up who wants some sunshine? Me, me, me!! I want to feel the sand between my toes, the sun on my skin and to see my freckles come out. I want to read a good book under a parasol, with the sparkling and fresh sea ready to dive into… Basically, girls, when are the holidays? My desire to hit the beach this year has reached new heights thanks to Piz Buin and their app Sun Finder which is a virtual list of all the more beautiful sunny corner of the world. 

The world’s most beautiful beaches. Here’s my list of my favourite beaches in the world (also in Italy!) 

To celebrate Piz Buin’s 70th birthday, and 70 years of beautiful sun protection, the brand has decided to surprise us all: they’re going to help sun-seekers find the best sunny corners of the world. This means you’ll be returning home from your holidays with an incredible story to tell… Piz Buin has put together a list of 70 sunny destinations around the world (find them here!). But that’s not all: they’ve given all of us, all across the world, the opportunity to share our own favourite sunny destinations to create a virtual list of inspiration for all our holidays.

Prepare yourself for summer by getting back in shape… 

Prepare yourself for summer. After talking a little while ago about how to get away from dull, grey, tired skin and to get that luminosity and summer colour back, it’s now time to take the reigns and get back in shape… because the beach is getting closer every day!!

Piz Buin is celebrating its 70th birthday this year, and they’ve put together, on their web page for Piz Buin Sun Finder, all the best sunny destinations around the world :) Help them discover the most beautiful destinations for summer: upload onto the page your personal favourite summer spot, and offer inspiration for all sun lovers from around the world (here you can find the best sunny destinations already uploaded!). In this way, you could become the next Sun Ambassador for Piz Buin (like me!!). Plus, I will also be participating by postinghere my favorite sunny places for holiday, together with the rest of the Piz Buin  sun ambassadors from Spain and Greece.

Prepare yourself for summer by getting back in shape… 

So now that swimsuit season is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to take control of our bodies… especially if you over-indulged during the winter months and now are worried about getting into your bikini!! We all know winter is the time for flopping on the sofa, watching films under the duvet… it’s amazing, I know, but now it’s time to kick start your summer fitness routine, because cake, pasta and Easter eggs all end up on our waistlines!! And it’s not impossible to arrive at the seaside and to be able to look in the mirror and think, I look good!! But how??

Banish dull skin and get summer-ready: goodbye fuzzy legs, hello tan!



Banish dull skin and get summer-ready: goodbye fuzzy legs, hello tan!

Banish dull skin. How many of you are going to tell me that you’re too afraid to get your legs out, because they’re too pale, or even worse, too hairy? This is the fundamental problem of this time of year, in the period between winter and summer, that we have to tackle every year. Not only because suddenly our eternally hidden skin is now on show (hello various flabby bits… we’ll be discussing this soon!), but also because our skin is bright white, hairy, dull… sad, essentially. Of course, winter doesn’t help: with freezing temperatures and tight clothes which suffocate your skin, plus if you don’t exfoliate regularly during winter and moisturise often, your skin is in a desperate state. But now that spring has arrived, it’s time to show off our beautiful skin: here’s how in 5 easy steps!

Banish dull skin and get summer-ready: goodbye fuzzy legs, hello tan!


First, you need to get rid of all the dry skin. Eliminate dead skin cells and reveal glowing skin. My advice is to exfoliate regularly at home, at least 2/3 times a week with an exfoliating glove on the driest parts of your body (knees, elbows etc) everyday. For your face, a gentler approach: exfoliate 2 or 3 times a week (but very gently, especially if you have very sensitive skin), followed immediately by a face-mask. But what kind of face-mask? Deep-cleaning, hydrating, brightening? Two ideas: first to use a different type of face-mask for different parts of the face. For example, I use a face-mask for oily skin on my forehead (where I tend to get pimples), a deep cleaning mask on my T-zone and finally an oxygenating mask (yes, one that makes loads of bubbles) on the rest of my face, or all over my face once a week.

If you want to invest a bit more, go for a deep cleaning exfoliator: it’s perfect for getting rid of all those dead skin cells in one use. I’d especially recommend this one if you have an important event at the last minute and you need to quickly “tidy up”, or also before a series of specific treatment (such as anti-cellulite treatment).

My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!



My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!

My trip to Costa Rica. ‘Pura Vida’ is the official motto of Costa Rica, meaning ‘pure life’. These two words perfectly sum up this beautiful country: a wild and sun-kissed land that is rich in beautiful nature and animals. A land of nature that is still blissfully untouched, dreamy beaches, unforgettable little places. Costa Rica is the country that we had the pleasure of exploring together with Piz Buin, the famous sun-care brand that was the creator of the first suncream, and that is celebrating its 70th birthday this year with the launch of lots of new products and its search for the best sun-kissed corners of the world for you to explore!

My trip to Costa Rica with Piz Buin: Pura Vida!

So super protected by an infinite range of products by Piz Buin that we were lucky enough to try out during the trip (and that I must say, provided excellent sun protection even in adverse circumstances… and this comes from someone who is obsessed with sun protection!), together with the Piz Buin team and some bloggers from all across Europe (Trendy TasteFashion MumblrThe muse and the ladybugSandra Kisic), off we went to explore Costa Rica!
