If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you can follow me at @manuluize), you noticed I’ve been going to some fitness and training events organized with a initiative by the beauty brand Lierac, that’s organizing a beauty run here in Milan on June 9th: the Lierac Beauty Run 2018.
The Lierac Beauty Run is one of the brand’s initiative to empower woman and to help us to add some healthy running/activities in our life with more consistency.
In 2018, this is going to be the third beauty run and this years’ run was presented on the new New Balance flagship store here in Milan and it’s also known as the “corsa in rosa”, that means “the pink run” in italian. The run is organized by RCS Active Team – RCS Sport in collaboration with Lierac.
• Lierac Beauty Run 2018 – Milano:
It’s not only a beauty run created to empower woman that take part in the run, but you can also choose one between five different organizations to donate your donation quote included on the enrollment for this beauty run. This’ years organizations are: Fondazione Umberto Veronesi, Dynamo Camp, Diversity, Fondazione Francesca Rava and Professional Women Network.
Andrea Trabuio, Head of Mass Events RCS Active Team, explained: “Lierac Beauty Run is a run created to celebrate women and lovers of a healthy lifestyle, a day of great celebration for everyone. Also on this year, the run will pass in the heart of Milan with two routes, one of 5 km and another one of 10 km. The run is the end of a journey that started in January with RUN4ME Lierac, which has registered over 1000 members. We are waiting for you on June 9th starting at 3.30 pm at the Lierac Beauty Village, with many activities organized by our partners and with a special Kids Area. ”
The Lierac Beauty Run will take place on the Saturday 9th June at 9.00 pm, with departure and arrival at the majestic Civic Arena of Milan, and then winding along a city route of 5 km and 10 km! Which seems to be so cool!
All women and their companions can register for the 5 km race. Also this year, there will be a special start entirely dedicated to families and their children.
The most trained runners can participate in the 10 km, competitive and non-competitive running.

As a beauty run, some cosmetics couldn’t be left out of the game, right? Here are the products that will be part of the runner’s kit this year:

A red dress is that kind of dress that every woman should have in her wardrobe, and when in doubt, just start with the classics or basic pieces.
And this red dress is exactly that, it’s such a versatile dress that can be worn for spring or even for the fall/winter season!
• Red dress outfit:
A simple short red dress that can match different moods and styles. As you all probably know by now, I love high heels and this is the kind of shoes that I usually choose to pair with my outfits and dresses and so was the case here.
• GET MY OUTFIT:
It’s a red dress with a minimal approach (that I love!), so I thought it was a perfect classic choice to be part of my closet.
You can wear it with a bigger bag like I did for the daily life outfits or you can pair it with a smaller handbag or even a clutch for a more dress up/night out kind of outfit.
I think I already wrote here on the blog how I’ve been a bit obsessed with red clothing lately, specially red dresses, I’m in such a red vibe these days! And do you know why? Because red is such a color-trend for this year! So if you doubt, go with the red!
As for the quality of the dress and a Stylewe review, that’s from where this dress is from, fabric and quality are nice and the prices are always affordable with some interesting variety of dresses and clothing in general.
And since I was in an all classy mood, I just decided to go with a pair of black high heels, some golden accessories like a choker, earrings and a delicate flower ring.
• GET MY MAKEUP LOOK:
For my makeup look, a clean and almost natural makeup with a touch of a red lipstick, the color is Ruby Woo by MAC. My all time favorite red lipstick.
Spring is here and it almost looks like it’s already summer, so beautiful summer dresses are a must for this season!
And for this outfit I picked a short dress in white with some lace details in black and white that’s perfect for a fresh and chic outfit during the summer days.

I love white for spring and summer outfits and a little white dress is always a must-have for the summer season. But since I love a little detail or something that makes an outfit more delicate, I picked this white dress with some lace detail.
The shoulders’ cut is very modern and makes this dress a little more edgy than if it wasn’t there.
You all know how much I love high heels and now that the spring has arrived, it’s time to take your sandals out for a walk.
• GET MY OUTFIT:
I spent the day visiting some events of the Milan Design Week and Vanity Fair created the Green House, a cute and lovely place with beautiful gardens where I took this next photo:
This white dress is from the website StyleWe, where I have been able to find some cute dresses with affordable prices, and with an interesting quality of fabrics and sewing. Be it for winter outfits as well as summer outfits. They have a cool selection of pieces.
For my makeup, a very basic look with brown eyeshadows on my eyes and a bright pink lipstick on my lips:
• GET MY MAKEUP:
And my hair was with a very different hairstyle with a braid on side and just some messy hair on the other half of my hair, do you like it?

* I received the product from the brand, but my reviews are always my real and sincere opinions on the products/clothing I try.
Spring is finally here! Yesterday was a beautiful and sunny day her in Milan and I could finally wear my new pink lace dress, spring-perfect!
You all know how much I love delicate outfits and I’m in such a vibe of all shades of pink, specially baby pink and millennial pink for this spring/summer. So I couldn’t wait to wear this delicate little dress.
Pink lace Dress: Popjulia
This cute dress is going to be perfect for the spring/summer days this season and it’s from an affordable website called Popjulia. When shopping online, there is always a doubt if the piece you buy is going to arrive and be of good quality, I already own a few pieces from this website and I’ve been enjoying it.
The fabric of this dress is nice, the only thing you should remember is to check the delivery time, my dress took about a month to arrive here in Milan, so take that in consideration if you’re picking an outfit for a certain occasion. ;)
The style of this pink lace dress is cute and elegant, perfect for a casual afternoon out or even to going out during the summer nights.
You can either wear it with high heels like I’m doing here or dress it down with a beautiful pair of ballet flats.
Because I was in the mood for something almost monochromatic, I paired this pink dress with nude shoes and rosé accessories, like the earrings, bracelet, ring and even my hand bag. All in rosé!
My outfit photos were made at the Darsena here in Milan, near the Porta Ticinese, where you will be able to find a lot of coffee shops and bars. Such a lovely place to have a walk during the spring days.
This dress is fully in lace, so, so it’s its back.
For my makeup, nothing too different of my usual everyday makeup with a touch of a bright pink lipstick:
Elegance, tailoring and sophistication were all on the Maryling runway for Fall / Winter 2018.19 collection, as well as a highlight for monochromatic looks, especially in red and for the elegant plaid patterns.
I went to check out the Maryling fashion show during the Milan Fashion Week here in Milan and here are the main looks and trends chosen by Maryling for the next winter.
• Maryling Fall/Winter 2018.19 at MFW:
Matching the same pattern it’s still a hot trend and it’s also represented by this plaid print for Maryling 2019’2 Fall/Winter season, with the elegance made in Italy.
The college inspiration gains a much more sophisticated look, with a plaid print and 3/4 stockings, in a very adult and elegant look.
Dresses in fine fabrics create a movement and sensuality for the brand’s winter:
A beautiful print to make this winter happier:
Two of my favorite outfits from the Maryling fashion show from the winter 2019 collection, one in red with a beautiful plaid print and one in ton sur ton red outfit. Lately I’m so into the red vibe, and it’s a color that was super present on the Fall/ Winter 2018.19 runways here during the Milan Fashion Week.
The dark and sober tones that can not be missed during the Italian winter, always with overlays, even on the monochromatic outfits:
To finish this blog post, another outfit I loved from this collection is this one with this stunning camel coat:
Check out a video from the Maryling’s collection for the Fall/Winter 2018.19 show on the Milan Fashion Week:
Over the last years, once a year, the Salon du Chocolat Milano makes Milan a sweeter city and a great place for those who love chocolate and cooking. I’ve been to the 2018 edition of the Salon du Chocolat here in Milan and I loved the experience, because I love cooking, specially sweets.
From 15th to 18th February, Milan hosted the Salon du Chocolat with so many events and brands exhibiting their amazing chocolates at the Salon. During the four days of the event, we had 47 showcooking events, 36 presentations, and more then 105 brands and degustations of chocolate and sweets.
• Salon du Chocolat Milano 2018:
It all started with the opening night on the 15th February and with a fashion show inspired by the king: the chocolate. The dresses always had a story behind it and they were created by fashion designers collaborating with chocolatiers and chefs, creating a very interesting final result.
Check some of the dresses that were in exhibition after the opening fashion show at the Salon du Chocolat Milano 2018:
I love cooking, so I checked many of the showcookings during the Salon du Chocolat and I definitely learned a lot from italian chocolatiers and chefs.
Nicolò Moschella is a young pastry chef that I already heard about, because once I walking around Milan I ended up in a place called Just Love, it’s a coffee shop, but you can also have lunch there, as well as the famous italian aperitivo by the end f the day. The place is very cute and fashionable (I guess you now understand why I liked it.), but food is also great. I already tried from sandwiches to sweet croissants, tart, fish and even a veggie lasagna, all was always very good and with a nice ambience.
One of the brands I meet during the Salon du Chocolat here in Milan was Italianframe, a multisensorial shop opening here in Milan. I tried one of their cookies with a crystalized violet, it was such a good combination! Italianframe defines itself as a place where art, pastry and flowers meet, the end result could be just a great combination.
Check more photos of other brands and chocolate I saw during the Salon du Chocolat here in Milan:
Can we say crystalized flowers are a trend in chocolates already?
If you are around Milan around this time next year and you love chocolate and sweets, the Salon du Chocolat could be a great time to enjoy and appreciate good quality chocolate and sweets. Be it a program for italians, milanese or travelers.
