Think Pink for Mother’s Day

Every year I buy a new pair of Superga sneakers to wear on my Glam Italia tours, not because the old ones are worn out, but because they come in so many fabulous and fun colors and I can’t justify buying multiple pairs in one year. I have grey, black, royal blue, hot pink, and now this year I bought pale pink. Supergas are the super cool sneaker that every it-girl in Europe seems to wear. They are chic, look good with everything, are incredibly comfortable, and you can walk or stand all day in them!

If you are buying Superga sneakers for Mom for Mother’s day you can find them on (free shipping!). They are absolutely true to size so you can safely order them as a gift.

Tory Burch Fleming Pink

Tory Burch Fleming Bag in pink

The Tory Burch Fleming bag in pink is my new favorite thing! The color on my bag didn’t photograph well – it’s actually a really pretty, hot pink. I love the quilting on this bag, the chain strap that can either be worn as a cross body bag or as a regular shoulder bag (making it perfect for travel!) and the size of it. The Fleming is neither a giant, heavy bag, nor a tiny bag. You can comfortably fit your sunglasses, wallet, phone and makeup bag – my personal requirements- in there. has a great selection of Fleming bags, including a pale pink one that I didn’t see when I ordered mine.

Nars lipstick in Roman Holiday. A client gave me a tube of this lipstick before one of my Italy trips and it instantly became one of my favorites. Quite apart from the name, here’s why: the texture is amazing, it keeps your lips super hydrated, the color is perfect – cool pink but not Barbie pink. I travel with just 2 lipsticks, a bold shade and a soft, glossy shade. All summer long this is my soft shade, its just incredibly pretty! You can order it online at

Narciso Rodriguez for her

Narciso Rodriguez For Her Eau de Parfum. I have worn this fragrance for years. I first discovered it during a layover at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport on my way to Florence. I sprayed it on one of those white fragrance cards and threw it in my handbag, and then for the rest of my trip every time I opened my bag the fragrance would waft up at me. In Florence I found a Sephora and bought it, and have worn it ever since. Every time I spritz in on I think of Florence.

The fragrance has a main body of musk, with soft floral notes of rose petals and iris, and some amber at the end. It is intensely feminine, slightly spicy, and absolutely gorgeous. It’s not on the shelves in most Sephoras but you can buy it online at

Foreo ISSA Hybrid

The Foreo ISSA Hybrid. Obsessed. I have been using the ISSA Hybrid for a few months now and it is just fantastic. Foreo have taken the sonic toothbrush concept to a whole new level with this revolutionary product. Instead of  regular bristles that can damage gums it uses silicone. The ISSA Hybrid is super gentle on your gums but polishes your teeth to a just-been-to-the-dentist level. I am convinced my teeth are whiter and brighter since using the ISSA Hybrid. You can order this feat of Swedish ingenuity online at, Inc.

I wrote recently about my favorite new thing, the Foreo Sonic ISSA HybridToothbrush. This silicone toothbrush is absolutely brilliant! It’s gentle on your gums and yet polishes and whitens your teeth so that it looks like you just left the dentists office.

pink foreo luna

Another Foreo product that makes a fabulous gift for mom this Mother’s Day is the Foreo Luna. This is a T Sonic facial cleansing brush that has silicone nubs instead of bristles, making it extra gentle. You can actually choose one specific to your skin type too, rather than trying to get a “one size fits all”option. The Luna gives you a deeper cleanse, exfoliates, unclogs pores, makes your skin absorb your skincare products even better, and has anti-aging benefits.

The Luna comes in a standard size, a mini and a travel size. See them all here

Foreo Issa Review

I have been wanting to test the FOREO ISSA toothbrush for ages! Basically every since it came out.

Face it – it just looks super cool!

I finally got my hands on one, and wanted to use it for a few weeks before writing a review. I get so excited about new things so I wanted to wait a while and see if after the initial excitement wore off I would still be loving it.

I’m loving it!

We are all familiar with sonic type toothbrushes, but this one is different because instead of sharp bristles it is made from silicone. The brush is all silicone! It is completely genius. The FOREO ISSA not only cleans your teeth, it massages your gums too, and of course we all know that in order to have healthy teeth and a great smile you have to have healthy gums. For people who have receding or sensitive gum this is an extra bonus.


One of my friends who was able to test the FOREO ISSA last year told me to watch out for how white my teeth would become after changing to this toothbrush, and she was right. My teeth look super white and super glossy. The combination of the silicone brush and the sonic pulse technology removes plaque, stops tartar buildup and removes stains on the teeth, making them look both whiter and brighter.

I was actually a little dubious as to whether you could really clean your teeth with a silicone brush, but it really does work! There are two brush heads to choose from. The FOREO ISSA  pictured here, and the FOREO ISSA HYBRID which combines silicone and a PBT Polymer which is stronger on plaque but still gentle on gums.

Some of the things I love about this toothbrush

  • The fantastic ergonomic design. It’s not weighty or cumbersome, and it’s not too big. It fits your hand (and your mouth!) comfortably. And did I mention it looks really cool?
  • The state of the art technology behind this toothbrush is truly revolutionary.
  • It has a USB charger, so you really can charge it anywhere.
  • It takes only one hour to charge and you only need to charge it twice per year! How fantastic is that?? If you have had a regular electric toothbrush then you already know that they have a plug in dock that sits on your bathroom counter, taking up space and looking ugly.
  • The FOREO ISSA and ISSA HYBRID stand on your bathroom counter by themselves looking incredibly chic.
  • The brush head lasts 6 months! Replacement brush heads are very inexpensive too.
  • The FOREO ISSA is perfect for travel. You don’t need to pack a charging dock when you travel – if you will be away more than 6 months you can pack your USB charger, but otherwise you just pack the toothbrush which comes with a soft pouch for travel.
  • You don’t need to wonder where you are in the 2 minute brushing cycle because it alerts you every 30 seconds to move to the next quadrant of your mouth. This makes sure each group of teeth gets equal cleaning.
  • Your teeth feel just-been-to-the-dentist clean. You know how after a cleaning at the dentist’s office your teeth feel glossy and you  can’t stop running your tongue over them? That’s what it feels like every day with the FOREO ISSA and FOREO ISSA HYBRID.
  • It comes in cool colors, Black, Mint, Cobalt Blue and Lavender.

It looks so modern and sleek and makes for a very chic gift too. Mothers Day is just around the corner and the ISSA (or any of the FOREO products) would make a fabulous gift. For those of you who like me have mothers in far flung lands across the world, this is a gadget that you can actually send internationally, because you don’t plug it into a wall socket to charge, you plug it into a USB port.

FOREO  make their revolutionary toothbrushes in fun colors for the entire family. The FOREO ISSA Mini is for children from 4 years old and up, and the FOREO ISSA Mikro is for babies through 4 years old.
