Ready Steady Movember




I didn't think it was possible, 
but I am actually jealous of anybody who will be able to grow a moustache this November.
The super cool awarness campaign against prostate and testicular cancer, Movember, is back. And so will be the testosteronic moustaches on the mature faces of conscious men all around the world. 
That's probably one of the - hopefully - last traces of my Oedipus complex (my dad has a moustache), but I kinda like "bros" with hairy faces.
I'll see you in Nov..., sorry, Movember guys ;)!

The "mo bro" code:

1.Once signed up at movember.com, every "mo bro" has to begin the 1st of Movember with a clean shaven face.
2.For the entire month of Movember a "mo bro" must grow and groom a moustache.
3. Don't fake it. No beards, no goatees, not fake moustaches.
4. Use the power of the moustache to create conversations about men's health and to raise funds for prostate and testicular cancer.
5. Each "mo bro" must conduct himself like a true gentleman...

Psst! Women can support the Movember cause too! I just signed up as a Mo sista!

YSL: The One and Only in Two Different Movies




Yves Saint Laurent: one big artist, two different biographical productions launched within a year.
Oh la la! 
Watched the first. I still have to watch the one lauched in the trailer above.  And I kinda have to, since only the first one officially got the green light from Saint Laurent's life partner Pierre Bergé. Ah, holy curiosity!

The iPhone Diary

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: 

canyoning1
canyoning2
canyoning3
canyoning4

canyoning5
canyoning7
canyoning8
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 ;)!
