Going to Florence soon?

If you’re planning a trip to Italy, a stop in Florence, if only to witness the restoration of the Baptistery, is a must.  The Pucci couture sheath, wrapped by the venerable House of Pucci a year ago,  remains a delight for tourists and Florentines alike.

The Pucci family is one of the city’s founding families and its Renaissance-era Palazzo is around the corner from the Baptistery.  Laudomia Pucci has kept her father’s passion alive, spearheading efforts to mark the 60th anniversary of Florence’s Center for Italian Fashion with her father’s original 1957 designs. Pucci used over 20,000 scarves to drape the iconic Baptistery of San Giovanni in Florence during its restoration. “Quite amazing to think the foulard Emilio designed in 1957 would be draping the Baptistery over 50 years later!.” A limited edition of the ‘Battistero’ scarf is available at Emilio Pucci’s stores in Florence, Rome and Milan as well as on emiliopucci.com, with proceeds benefiting this iconic monument’s continued refurbishment, scheduled to be completed September 2015.

Emilio Pucci not only dressed The Baptistery in Florence Italy, and designed the limited edition scarf, but then went to the next level– Presenting scarves of the world.. What’s next?

I found the perfect face cream in WAKAYA– Wakaya Perfection



I’ve tried sooo many creams and spent sooo much money– Crème de la Mer, La Prairie, Sisley.. I can go on and on.. but then, I was introduced  to Dilo Cream from Wakaya— a private island in Fiji, known for its natural benefits, minerals and electrlytes which made Fiji water famous. 

 Though I was privliged to have visited Wakaya in the eighties, more recently I met up with David Gilmore, owner of Wakaya and founder of Wakaya Perfection which resulted in my new found love affair with Dilo Cream!  (It didn’t hurt to witness his wife Jill’s skin at multiple events this past season in Palm Beach– ) Jill’s complexion is a testimony to the product!

 I’ve been using the SPF 35 for my daily pool workouts to protect my skin from the blazing sun and chlorine, as well as the Dilo cream diligently nightly for three weeks, and have experienced a world of difference!

Wakaya Perfection Dilo products are made with organic virgin dilo oil, harvested from wild mature dilo trees on the island of Wakaya. The Dilo tree has been revered for centuries for its cosmetic and healing properties. Calophyllic Acid, found only in Dilo Oil, has been shown to reduce inflammation, help dry skin, and promote the growth of healthy new skin cells. 

I never opted to ‘save money’ on my skin– but now I have the best of products, a touch of the beautiful island of Wakaya every morning and night on my skin– and YES, I get to save money too! 

I recently ordered the Ginger and Tumeric products which I understand are equally fabulous if not better!  Will keep you in the loop once I personally test them!!



or even better, virtually travel to Wakaya

Rock Tradition with Ivanka Trump | Hamilton Jewelers

Hamilton Jewelers chose Ivanka Trump’s leading jewelry collection as their Spring 2014 highlight. Launching in 2007 at her boutique on Madison Avenue, the Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry collection focuses on the decades between the 20’s and the 50’s of Art Deco, combining with the structure and elegance of the architecture of New York.

The pieces exhibit the softer, romantic and feminine silhouettes of the early 50’s, harking back to the stars of old Hollywood. The collections appeals to women who have strong sense of themselves, know what they like, value exquisite workmanship and wear even the most important jewelry with a kind of off-handed elegance. By reinventing the best classics of the past cen-tury with a modern twist, Ivanka Trump encourages women every-where to rock tradition.
