Often we have a garment that can be worn and styled in many different ways, but have you ever thought about how to wear a shirt and style it differently?
A shirt is such a basic and so classic piece that almost everyone has at least one in the wardrobe, and did you know that it can actually be worn in several different ways? You can even make it look like almost a new blouse!
So I filmed a video with 7 different ways on how to wear and style a button up shirt, showing the same piece worn in different ways, not only in different looks, but also showing you how to style, tie or twist it to create a new way of wearing a shirt. In the number 7, it almost looks like another piece!

As someone who has oily skin, there was a time I was kind of afraid even to think of using a skincare product that was oil-based, until I tried the first facial oil 2 years ago and I loved the texture! It is not because the product is an oil texture one that it will leave your skin oily, in fact even if you have oily skin, you can use oil-based products with no problem at all and they can be great for your skin.
So today I’m doing a full review of the InLight Face Oil, a product and brand that I’ve met at the Cosmoprof last year and that I was testing for a couple of months, using it daily during my morning and night routine.
• InLight Face Oil: Review
I’d like to just mention that InLight Beauty is an organic cosmetic brand, and that this Face Oil is 100% organic, meaning that all ingredients present in this product are 100% natural and organic. And I’ve been really enjoying getting to know more natural and organic brands, because I love skincare products and since they are super present in my daily routine, it’s always better to pay attention to what ingredients and chemicals I’m applying to my skin.
So back to the InLight Face Oil: it’s a protective elixir for daily moisturising and it’s recommended for all skin types, including sensitive and/or damaged skin by sun and ageing.
The brand introduces this face oil with the following benefits:
– To help to balance production of skin sebum
– For long lasting moisturising feel
– To create a protective barrier and base for makeup
– To leave your skin feeling velvety soft
After using it for a couple of months, I really feel that my skin feels moisturised and smooth, this oil is not heavy and it didn’t leave my skin feeling oily. I applied it every day morning and night and my skin was never feeling oily because of the product.
I also liked it as a base for my makeup, the foundation apply very easily after this oil.
This face oil has a really light texture and it’s easily absorbed by the skin, it doesn’t make your skin look or feel oily and since it’s easily absorbed, it also don’t make your skin feel sticky or anything like it. It’s color is yellow, but it goes clear and transparent when you apply it into your skin.
You just need a few drops to apply this oil to your face and neck, by the way, never forget to apply your skincare in you neck as well! The packaging recommends from 2 to 5 drops for face and neck and that’s really it, you just need a small quantity of product.
You can apply it and after go with any other product that you feel the need to apply, or you can apply your daily sunscreen if it’s in the morning.
I usually apply oily products after I wash my face and apply an eye cream, so the third product will be the skincare oil-based product I’m using at the moment. In the night I do the same thing and sometimes I apply a face exfoliator before applying this oil.
I’ve been really enjoying using oil-based products and I really liked this Face Oil from InLight, for being light textured and actually making my skin smooth and moisturised after every application. Since I tried it for a good couple of months, I can also say that it didn’t leave my skin oilier even when I was applying it on a continuous basis, even on a long period of time.

Most people make the same mistake by indulging in a holiday that does nothing but make them even more tired. Instead, they should focus on their health and well-being.
The best thing to do is go to a health or wellness retreat that will give your body the necessary relaxation and so much more. It’s an excellent way to give your body that extra boost of energy that will provide enough of a push to feel relief from everyday stress.
Wellness retreats are also excellent to take care of those long-neglected well-being goals. These health retreats keep you active through having fun in a stress-free environment that will reenergize you. Most of them are placed in beautiful surroundings, which can be quite soothing.
Natural wonders, biking trails, and natural thermal springs are just some of the interesting and exciting things you can enjoy.
Enhance your well-being with a wide range of healing and wellness activities. With all that in mind, here are some compelling reasons why wellness retreats are good for your health and skin.
• Stress-free environment
Wellness retreats are mostly located in extremely beautiful surroundings, which is excellent for all those who need to de-stress. These health retreats are good for numerous things, as they provide a stress-free environment that helps beat insomnia, de-stress, eat healthily and get fit, among many other things.
Then, there’s also the benefit for your skin. In natural surroundings, you get a chance to escape all the daily stresses.
In fact, if it’s de-stressing that you need, wellness retreats offer the most excellent destressing methods such as spa treatments, detoxing, and meditation. Take a healing holiday and feel healthy, energized, and refreshed.
• Specifically designed wellness events
Not every wellness retreat is the same. Different retreats offer different events which are intended to provide relaxation and refreshment in exquisite surroundings.
These feel-good treatments offer an excellent way to take care of not only your health and mind but your skin as well. Tanning is fine, but it isn’t so great for your skin, especially if you overdo it.
You can pick specifically designed wellness events that will provide special treatment for your skin. For example, if you’re having trouble with fine lines and wrinkles and you want to do something good for your skin, a facial treatment with the Premier Dead Sea mud mask seems like an excellent way to take care of those dehydrated areas in the skin, as well as prevent the appearance of fine lines.
Picking a wellness event with such treatments will leave your skin beautiful and smooth, as the minerals found in the Dead Sea mud can do wonders for your skin.
• Not all wellness retreat focus on the same thing
There’s a wellness retreat for any taste. In fact, most of these retreats tailor their events and treatments to better suit the needs of their customers.
Whether you’re just looking for a healthy getaway, to lose weight, take care of your digestive problems, solution for your skin condition or just some stress relief, health retreats are the best way to take care of your health and reconnect with nature.
Most people use these retreats to take care of their health problems, as sometimes natural and traditional ways give the best results. People who suffer from any skin condition and are fed up with chemical treatments often turn to natural means.
Well, a wellness retreat that offers an excellent skin treatment with the Dead Sea Minerals might just be what you need to reap some important benefits such as:
- Removal of the dead skin cells
- Anti-wrinkle treatment
- Skin perfecting
- Age-defying daily skin care routine

• Avoiding bad habits induced by routines
Everybody needs a change from their daily routine, as people are used to bad habits induced by those routines. They easily get absorbed into that bad routine that makes them neglect relaxation and they fail to take some time off to take care of their health.
The truth is, wellness retreats provide life-enhancing experiences. They allow you to break your habits and routine, disconnect from daily stress and just let go of all the pressures you’re used to on a daily basis. This makes you stronger, healthier, happier, and more positive.
• A time to focus on you
Most people forget how important it is to focus on themselves and their health. Modern life offers so many distractions but a wellness retreat helps you disconnect and take some time to take care of yourself.
With proper fitness and health professionals at your side, spending some time in a wellness center helps your sleep, skin health, stress relief, anti-aging, detox, weight-loss, and so much more.

• Red hair color: light shades
Among the shades of light red hair color is the famous “strawberry blonde”, a light reddish-blonde hair color that has been very successful among several celebrities and is a hair color that creates a mixture between a redhead and very delicate blonde hair color.
Options for red hair color in lighter shades are very delicate and they are also the choice of many celebrities who had their hair dyed red or even were born with natural red hair color:
Another trend among red hair colors and shades is the so-called nude red hair, a redhead tone that is actually created with a certain basis in the person’s natural hair, creating a perfect shade for each skin tone, that’s why it can vary from person to person as it is created according to the natural color of your hair.

One of the world’s capital of fashion and design, Milan is a city full of events and one of the important one for who loves or works with architecture and design is the Salone del Mobile and the Milano Design Week in Milan (also known as Fuorisalone), that will be taking place this April, between 09/04 and 14/04.
For the 2019 Milano Design Week, the 5VIE, an integrated design district here in Milan is preparing a lot of interesting exhibitions and events. I’ve been present on the press conference a couple of days ago and here are the main attractions of the 5VIE for this Milan Design Week.
• 5VIE for the Milano Design Week 2019:
The 2019 edition of 5VIE is bringing art+design and it embraces experimentation more openly than ever to cultivate an even more international presence. This year’s goal is to consolidate their reputation as a cultural reference point, bringing together plurality of thought and international heterogeneity.
Cristina Tajani, Councillor for Labor, Manufacturing, Fashion and Design Policy, explains that “the presentations and installations proposed by 5VIE help implement the Administration’s mission to spread the vitality and creativity of Design Week to every part of the city. We believe that the Fuorisalone represents not only a great opportunity for operators in the design sphere to get together and compare notes, but for the city to offer the possibility of approaching beauty and craftsmanship through the new creative languages of design, which are often contiguous with the long artisanal traditions specific to the various quarters of Milan. An opportunity to explore the world of design, which draws strength from the collaborative efforts of the Municipality of Milan and the operators in the various districts, united by the desire to promote the city under the banner of creativity and innovation.”.
Every year, 5VIE dedicates the Milano Design Week to a great master and for 2019 their guest of honor will be Ugo La Pietra, an artist who established his reputation back in the late ‘50s and whose production has since explored an incredible variety of creative techniques. His exhibition is entitled Design Territoriale, Genius Loci.
• List of Events and Exhibitions of the 5VIE Milano Design Week 2019:
Here’s a list of exhibitions, attractions and events that will take part on the 5VIE district during the Milano Design Week 2019 edition. The list is divided according to where it will be taking place:
- SANT’AMBROGIO e dintorni
– CARLO MASSOUD – THE FISH AND THE CROWD (curated by Maria Cristina Didero
Address: Oratorio della Passione, Piazza Sant’Ambrogio
The Fish and the Crowd is the first solo exhibition by the young Lebanese designer in Italy, and brings together a number of objects created since the designer started his studio in Beirut in 2013 until today, combined with a new production realized for the occasion.
Carlo Massoud is interested in translating the world surrounding him into every day and lively objects. For the 2019 edition of the Milan Design Week 2019, Carlo Massoud has reimagined the space of the Oratorio della Passione through a new collaboration with his sister Mary-Lynn with whom he has created a collaborative brand new project. In the space of this jewel church a number of objects play the role of an imaginary crowd, seated on benches. For The Fish and the Crowd Carlo and Mary-Lynn Massoud quote the classical icons of Christianity and its liturgies (the religion they also belong to) to involve the viewers in an intense and ironical reflection suspended between the physicality of the objects and the spiritual tension of the context.
– ANTON ALVAREZ – L’ULTIMA CERA (curated by Nicolas Bellavance- Lecompte)
Address: Chiesa di San Bernardino alle Monache, via Lanzone 13
The work of artist and designer Anton Alvarez is futuristic and primitive at the same time. With the exhibition L’Ultima Cera, Anton explores an ancient material in a new and innovative way: bronze. Commissioned by curator Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte and produced by 5VIE in collaboration with the Fonderia Artistica Battaglia in Milan as part of their new program of commissions and residencies, Alvarez adapts his machine, called ‘Extruder’, to work with wax. The extruder is a large metal cylinder hung from the ceiling by chains, using an electric motor to exert more than 2,000 kilos of pressure on the wax, pushing it through different moulds and cut-outs into a pool of cold water, where the artist uses his hands to give the wax its final form. When the wax is set, all the pieces are cast in bronze, each one-of-a- kind. Alvarez produces twelve pieces, this being the first time that an artist has approached bronze with such a technique.
– FORO STUDIO – RUG-O-RAMA
Address: International English Centre, Via Medici, 15
FORO Studio + Alessandro Iovine present Rug-o-rama, a series of carpets in different materials intended as an homage to the city of Milan. With the ardor of a lover, the designers seek to capture the many identities of the metropolis, making its beauty their own, filtering it through the attentive eye of those whose work is dedicated to bringing the tangible closer to the intangible. The challenge is to transmit the power of a place to a furnishing element – a carpet in this case – where the physicality of the materials encounters the ephemeral nature of emotion and memory. The final product is therefore rooted in the territory, but at the same time free to tell multiple stories in multiple places. The concept involves the use of recycled materials from local industries and artisans in the furniture sector, with the aim of giving them new life, transforming them into unique objects. The carpets are hand-woven on a reticular support that ensures structural integrity. The exhibition will guide the viewer along a visionary and varied path in search of the right perspective from which to admire the many facets of Milan.
– DAVIDE GROPPI – SPAZIO ESPERIENZE
Address: Via Medici, 13
Light to see and feel people and space.
Light like a vision, but also like a feeling.
Light expressing mystery, deep reflection and seduction.
– LIZARD – ANA POPESCU
Address: Via Circo, 1
Lizard for Design Week 2019 presents a small selection of Ana Popescu’s acrylic paintings. Born in Romania, grew up in France and now lives in Vienna. Her work is a constant experiment trying to combine formal elements such as shape and color. She is mainly inspired by architecture – Bauhaus and socialist modernism. Each one of her projects tries to render simple scenes in something more complex.
