The iPhone Diary

addy 2

If you think about it, there's no better diary than our smart phones. 

 We capture whatever gives us an emotion into pictures and then edit those images through apps so that they can mirror even better what we were feeling at the moment we took the picture. 
The human mind functions, thinks and understands the world around it in images. This makes pictures the most immediate codex we can use to communicate. 
 No wonder that we treasure so much the pictures we keep in our smartphones then. I even know people who take pictures of old printed pictures to keep them in their cell phones too. 

I had a look at the picts in my iPhone and sorted out those made in the last months that I like the most to share them with you. I "discovered" that I am much of a flower person and that I definitely have a thing for fluffy clouds and suggestive skies. And then of course there is the love for fashion details (some of the pictures above are from a fashion show in Lugano by Addy van den Krommenacker) even though I haven't been taking so many pictures of my outfits and I haven't been very selfie-obsessed either lately. 

What do you have in your smartphone? It could tell a lot about you.

Yes, I've been absent in the last weeks. But it was totally worth it.
Below, you will find some of the reasons why. 
I know you will understand ;).

The Canyoning Experience

This is the definition of what I experienced a couple of days ago by the online Oxford dictionary:

canyoning /ˈkanjənɪŋ/ (also canyoneering) The sport of jumping into a fast-flowing mountain stream and allowing oneself to be carried downstream at high speed.

And this is what it looks like: 


I surprised my BF with a canyoning tour to celebrate his birthday (the old chap is turning 32 tomorrow). We had our canyoning adventure in Ticino (Switzerland), where we both come from: it was so great to discover new beautiful natural places from our own native region. Watching the world from a mountain stream (in this specific case, the Boggera) while the flow is literally carrying you downstream as if you were a drop of water was amazing.

All in all: Best water park ever ;)!

Hair Therapy Session(-s): the Results

BC_RR_Compact Range
As promised, I am back with the results of my Bonacure hair therapy session, which I will now officially call sessionS, since I haven't stopped using the Bonacure Repair Rescue products since the test. It's been eleven days now (with a hair wash routine every 2-3 days), and I notice that my hair is glossy, nourished, and healthy. Let's be honest: not that my hair was an absolute catastrophe of split ends and dehydration. But as one can tell when some products are damaging one's hair, I now can certainly state that Bonacure is definitely not one of them, on the contrary. I hope you can see how my hair now shines on the picture above. What do you think?

Henkel and Schwarzkopf state that they have not made any test involving animal experimenting since the 1980s. Since March the 11th 2013, the EU law has forbidden animal testing for all cosmetic ingredients. Henkel & Schwarzkof are following the given rules. 
Should there be any problems with the copyright of the pictures I posted, please send me an e-mail at giorgiavonn@gmail.com and I'll remove them as soon as possible, thank you.
