Winter has finally come thanks to Burian, this super cold wind that covered half of Italy with snow. So we’ve a very good reason to escape from the city looking for the sun for the weekend, don’t you think? Here you are 3 travel ideas that you can reach in just a few hours by plane!       Marrakech You should be aware that, while we are freezing under the snow, in Marrakech is already spring. That’s a great reason to search for a last minute flight that can take us to this wonderful Moroccan city, second home for french designer Yves Saint-Laurent (the long awaited museum dedicated to his life and work opend last year). You can drink a peppermint tea on Jemaa el Fna plaza, get lost in the beautiful Jardin Majorelle, having some relaxing time in a hammam and enjoy the desert’s atmosphere. Maybe you remember that our dearest Chiara, not long ago, spent, some beautiful days in Marrakech.     Next time I need to sleep here ???? @revolve #RevolveAroundTheWorld #advertising #TheBlondeSaladGoesToMorocco A post shared by Chiara Ferragni (@chiaraferragni) on Nov 7, 2017 at 1:57pm PST       Malta It’s quite famous all around the world, but still it’s not considered as one of the coolest place to spend the holidays. Well, we completely disagree with this opinion, but maybe we can consider it as an ad advantage for us: we won’t risk to find too may people and have a real relaxing weekend. Malta has so many breathtaking cliffs, seasides that can compete with Caribbean ones (have you aver heard about Blue Lagoon?), wonderful Gozo Island and beautiful Medina, Malta’s the ancient capiltal. We’re pretty sure you’ll have a wonderful weekend!     Hello sunny Malta ☀️ So proud of my girl @caro_e_ ???? for launching her first swimwear collection ???? along with @hunkemoller ???????????? #bossbabe #womenempowereachother #malta #hunkemöller #caroforhkm A post shared by MADELEINE ✈️???????? (@pilotmadeleine) on Feb 25, 2018 at 3:07am PST       Crete Spring has already come in Crete: we can tell you that the coming days we’ll be so warm! If you always thought about it as a good place for your summer holidays, you should discover how beautiful it is in march. You can have some archeological moment (don’t miss the Minotaur’s Labyrinth inside Knossos palace), relaxing walks in Iraklion, Chania and Agios Nicholaus’ streets and unforgettable moments at the seaside, next to a deep blue sea.   Good morning Crete, nothing more rejuvenating than a beach walk ????

The make up trend for 2018? Metallic eyeshadows! Manuele Mameli, Chiara Ferragni‘s make up artist and our #BBtips contributor, explains how to create a bold, shining and sexy look.   Even if metallic eyeshadows are usually used to create dramatic make up looks, Manuele shows us a perfect daywear look. Here’s how you recreate it step by step.   ????MMBeautyTips???? Ogni un po’ di colore ???? #eyeshadowpalette @mulaccosmetics DifferentII colors #posh #bonton #thekholpencil @dgbeauty peacock 3 #mascara @diormakeup #pumpnvolume Thank’s my babe @clarissacarbone ???? A post shared by Manuele Mameli (@manuelemameli) on Feb 14, 2018 at 2:27am PST   1) Apply eye primer Thanks to the primer, we can create a bright base where we can apply the metallic eyeshadow. Primer also is required for long lasting looks.   2) Wet the brush A wet brush avoid pigments fall outs all over the face. At the same time, the colour’s eyeshadow will be more brillant.   3) Apply the eyeshadow Apply it all over the eyelid, just like we’re applying liquid metal on it.   4) Blend it Choose an intermediate colour, to avoid a clear-cut contrast with the first eyeshadow.   5) Finish with mascara Put some mascara on your eyelashes: what an amazing gaze! Manuele’s fave: the perfect eyeshadows for this look   Mulac Milano Different II Palette: these eyeshadows have shimmer tones, with soft or glittery textures easy to blend…but don’t use too much product.   Purobio shimmer eyeshadows: super affordable for a flawless look. There are many different shades and they’re all so smooth.   Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid: this brilliantly long-wearing sparkle eye shadow combines the perfect mix of pearl and glitter…For me, they’re faboulous!   Yves Saint Laurent Full Metal Shadow: easy to apply, with very interesting colours.   Madina Starlit eyeshadow: great value for money, beautiful colours for an amazing metallic effect. And now they’re also in sale!   Find all the products in our gallery below!  
Oscars 2018: the 9 best movies (and 1 more) to see this weekend
1-03-2018 13:36:51
The Blonde Salad
Are your ready for 2018 Oscars? There’s only 72 hours left to see all the movies that conquered the best picture nomination. We suggest you to watch all of them, plus one.   Call me by your name It’s been 19 years a italian movie wasn’t included in best picture short list. Luca Guadagnino’s play talks about the love story between Elio and Oliver, during a hot italian summer in 1983. The movie gained 4 nominations: best picture, best original song, best adapted screenplay and best actor in a leading role (Timothée Chalamet). Why you should watch it: because we debated about this movie for so long and because it’s good to support our country for such a good reason.   Dunkirk Christopher Nolan‘s movie depicts the evacuation of Dunquerque, a French seaside where the UK army was besieged by Nazis, during World War II. Why you should watch it: because we can’t say no to a movie about World War II, especially if the director decided not to use special effects.   Get Out It’s the second time in the Academy Awards history that an horror movie is included in the best picture short list. The first time was in 1992 for “The Silence of the Lambs”. And actually it won! Who knows if director Jordan Peele could score the award? Get out is about Chris, a young afro-american, that meet for the first time his wasp girlfriend’s parents. It will soon turn into a terryfing weekend, because his in-laws are like the new Ku Klux Klan. Why you should watch it: because it’s the director’s debut, it was made with a tiny budget and it soon became the hottest movie to watch…and plus, a movie weekend without an horror one?   Lady Bird Lady Bird is a coming-of-age teen movie and it’s the one you should’t expect in the best picture short list. Greta Gerwig, with her very first play, is the fifht woman to conquer the best director nomination. The plot portrays the relationship between the frustrated teenager Christine”Lady Bird” and her hyper protective mother Marion. Why you should watch it: because it’s about strong women, inside the movie but also outside the screen. All the 5 nominations are dedicated to director Greta Gerwig and actresses  Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf.   Phantom thread The Fifties couturier London’s atelier, where he creates beautiful dresses for princesses and movie stars is the set of Phantom thread, that talks about the relationship between the tailor  Reynolds Woodcock and his muse-lover Alma. It scored 6 nominations, included the one for best costumes, of course. Why you should watch it: because it’s Daniel Day-Lewis‘s farewell, and he’s close to conquer his 4th Academy award. The darkest hour  United Kingdom during World War II scored 2 nominations at the Academy Awards. Besides Dunkirk, also The darkest hour portrays the most difficult moment in Winston Churchill’s career, when he had to take the hardest decision ever for the country’s safe. Why you should watch it: again, we can’t say no to a good war movie, especially if Gary Oldman, with the Golden Globe already in his pocket, was able to turn himself into Chrurchill thanks to 200 make up hours.   The Post Latest Steven Spielberg movie depicts how Washington Post, just a local newspaper, became one of the most important medium in United States with the publication of Penthagon Paper, thanks to editor in chief Ben Bradlee and newpaper heiress Katharine Graham, the first female publisher of a major American newspaper Why you shoild watch it: because it’s about empowered women. Plus, how could you say no to Meryl Streep and her 22th Oscar nomination?   The shape of water Guillermo Del Toro‘s movie scored 13 nominations (only Titanic had 14 nominations). The plot is about Elisa, a cleaning woman at a secret Usa government laboratory where she discovers a mysterious creature emprisoned in a tank. We’re in Baltimore during the Cold War in 1962 and that “monster” could be the right weapon to defeat the enemy. Why you should watch it: because everybody loves impossibile love stories.   Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri  The plot depicts how three billboards, on which Mildred addresses the local olice department on how they didn’t solve the case of her daughter’s rape and murder, will change the lives of the three main characters: Mildred, indeed, sheriff Bill and agent Jason. Why you should watch it: because it scored 4 Golden Globe Awards and because it’s an outsider between so many big names. I, Tonya Tonya is Tonya Harding, the figure skater known as the first American woman to successfully land a triple axe that made headlines for the biggest sport scandal in the Usa. Why you should watch it: it’s not in the best picture short list, but Margot Robbie was so credible in Tonya Harding’s costumes that she scord her very first nomination for best leading role. Maybe she won’t conquer the award, but we hope it would be the first of a long series.

Sneakers, sneakers…we’re so obsessed by sneakers! Once upon a time, someone even created the word “sneakerhead” to define people that are crazy about them. It’s been a few seasons now that sneakers are considered the coolest items to show at fashion shows or glam partes. Do you know which are the 10 rules to follow? Keep on reading, then.   Two classic silhouettes see traditional renditions. The CNY #SUPERSTAR and #CAMPUS land January 13th. A post shared by adidas Originals (@adidasoriginals) on Jan 5, 2018 at 10:46am PST   Don’t forget the classics: we love retro sneakers. Adidas Originals, for example decided to relaunch all its past icons, such as Superstar or Stan Smith. Vintage mood is not over yet!   Love the sneakers of the moment: chunky sneakers have been the 2017 never without…and 2018, as well. Archlight, Rython, Triple S: impossibile not to think about immediately to succesful Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Balenciaga, that so many people define “ugly”. You really need to get a pair of them, even the most affordable ones.   Discover sneakers from another world with the #LouisVuitton Spring-Summer 2018 Collection by @nicolasghesquiere, now available worldwide, in-store and at louisvuitton.com. #LVSS18 A post shared by Louis Vuitton Official (@louisvuitton) on Feb 23, 2018 at 8:34am PST   Match them with posh outfits: sneakers revival showed us the truth: we can be posh even with a air of sneakers at our feet. Somebody loves to wear them with a masculine suit, other prefer to match them with glamourous runway dresses or even on the red carpet. Better be comfortable if you want to be amazing, isn’t it?   Choose the right socks: next spring-summer socks, you surely already know it, will have an important role to make out outfits remarkable. Talking about sneakers, you can’t make mistakes: choose logo socks, according or constacting your sneakers brand.   Tag three of your best girls who would LOVE these Triple S Balenciaga PINK colourway ???????? #thesolewomens ???? By @genteroma A post shared by The Sole Womens (@thesolewomens) on Feb 23, 2018 at 10:03am PST   Focus on total white: white is “the” sneakers’ colour, so you’ll better ave at least one pair of white sneakers in your wardrobe. It’s not easy to mantain their purity, but it’s very easy to match them with everything.   Wear them: some sneakerhead thought that we can’t consider a sneaker a shoe that is not used. there are so many brands that get them a “used” treatment before the purchase, but hey: see our dearest sneakers get old with us, priceless.   Born to ball @miho_umeboshi A post shared by Outpump (@outpump) on Feb 15, 2018 at 3:45am PST   Be inspired by your favourite sport: basket, running, tennis… sport has invaded the streets, literally. All the sneakers that not long ago we used to wear only at the gym are now the coolest to wear outside. So, let’s take some inspiration from your favourite sport, but remember: never wear the sneakers that you really use to do sport at work, parties or whatever.   Wear neon and bright colours: next season, brightest colours will be our MVP. Don’t be afraid to surprise others, but also yourself, with colours like green, orange, red and fucsia… we bet you’ll fall in love with them.   A look at new #GucciAce sneakers with wool-lined interior and trim featuring a gold embroidered bee—an archival House code from the 1970s. #GucciCruise18 #AlessandroMichele A post shared by Gucci (@gucci) on Feb 17, 2018 at 4:00am PST   Big yes to special details: studs, fur, pearls… sneakers now are more embroidered than a dress. But actually, that’s why we fall in love with them.   Don’t say no to millennial pink: it’s the hottest colour in the past few years and all the millennials love the. If you don’t want to miss the chance to be on trend, let’s fall in love with this candy and sweet pink shade. If you absolutely don’t want to wear it on your dresses, sneakers are the perfect compromize.   Inspired by @nycballet. Worn by @selenagomez.
