I hope you are well and enjoying your summer! I know its been 3 weeks since I posted my last post on the blog, but I always keep you updated through my IG!This period, even if I am busy because of an upcoming project, which I will be able to announce you very soon, I finally took some days off and I spend some summer days in Greece! However, as you've also seen on my IG, last week a travel for 2 days in Milan, because I had some meetings there, and of course because Milan is always a good idea!
Likewise, as most of you during the summer, I am so excited when I am able to visit some summer festivals! Switzerland is worldwide famous for its summer festival, and of course, I was so happy when I receive the invitation from M·A·C cosmetics to be with them for a weekend at Montreux Jazz Festival 2018! Since many years M·A·C is the official Make-up supplier of the Festival !
It was the first time that I visited Montreux and was so impressed! For sure It is one of the best places that I've visited in Switzerland!Of course Montreux was also so amazing because of the Jazz Festival!
As Mathieu Jaton, CEO Montreux Jazz Festival, said the spirit of the Montreux Jazz Festival could be summed up in three words "Take the time!".
The Montreux Jazz Festival takes places over 2 weeks each summer in Switzerland on the shore of Lake Geneva. with ambitious programming choices and a warm welcome forged in the hospitality industry, the festival offers a haven of peace to both artists and public - time seems to stop as the most improbable encounters become reality.
The Montreux Jazz Festival was created in 1967 by Claude Nobs, Rene Langel and Geo Vourmard and has since become a landmark event! Not because it draws more than 250000 visitors, or because those two weeks in Montreux make up one of the best- known events in Europe and beyond, but rather because the Festival has kept its soul intact throughout all this growth!
While jazz and blues are the roots of this event, other styles of music quickly found their place as well, anchored by artistic encounters between generations of musicians and unique experiments. Montreux has seen historic performances by artists including Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Leonard Cohen m David Bowie and Stevie Wonder!
The weekend that I visited the Festival, were supposed to enjoy a performance of a magnetically charismatic English musician, Rory Graham aka Rag'n'Bone! Unfortunately, due to health issues, he was not able to sing.
Although, this day also we were able to enjoy Angus and Julia Stone, which they extend their performance!
Folk is a Stone family affair , carved in an exquisite softness, After their adventure in Los Angeles with prestigious U.S. producer Rick Rubin, these Australians have created an intimate project written with four hands. And it was in Switzerland, on the slopes of a snowy mountain that they came up with the premise for Snow, Back in their home country, the Stones cloistered themselves in Angus' cattle farm in the hinterlands of Byron Bay, Connected to nature, they composed the sunny melodies of Snow around a dusty organ from the 1960s that they picked up second hand, Transmitting by turns spleen and euphoria , the duo sings the poetry of Baudelaire and the Hollywood follies o the Chateau Marmont!
Of course on a trip with M·A·C, I had the opportunity to get a male grooming look by M·A·C experts and of course to have a M·A·C backstage access and visit before the show!
Thank you so much M·A·C for this so special experience and for giving me the opportunity to be there with you!
I hope you are well, and you are enjoying your week! I am totally back to my daily routine, so today I have time to share with you all the details of my recent trip to Kent, with Sony!
Of course during my trip, I post a lot of IG stories in order to keep you infrormed exactly how were my days in England!I also created a Highlight Story Album in order to have always these stories on my IG!
As you already know I am a big fan of Sony. Last year, I got the Soundbar HT-MT300 from the first days of its realease! (you can see my post here).
Also only 2 weeks before my trip to England I also got the super new Sony Soundbar SF200 , which from the first time that I use it, watching my favorite Netflix series, immedieatly I adore it! The soundbar is very stylish and has a great sound quality. The features include S-Force PRO Front-Surround: sound like in the cinema, easy USB and Bluetooth connection and integrated subwoofer! I really like it because of that you can have it all in a design that easily fits into my home and complements my style!
However, the reason of this exclusive trip in form of a Safari to the Port Lympne Reserve in Kent, was the launch of the new Dolby Atmos Soundbar ZF9! It was an amazing trip full of the sounds of the jungle and the animals. Our trip included an action-packed schedule of activities, accommodation and cuisine.Our trip was inspired by the total immersion and exceptional realise of both the Soundbar and the film Jumanji!
One of the first activities on our program, was the Sound Safari!A "Safari" about the Port Lympne Reserve where we were immersed in the sounds, sights and smells of the Jungle! When the "safari" ended, we were ready for our dinner in a super jungle surrounding!Our day finished of course with the screening of the exciting film Jumanji, with the ultimate sound of Dolby Atmos Soundbar ZF9!
Our trip continued with a presentation about styling of our Living Room, by the Interior Designer Selina Lake . She showed us how to style our living room, incorporating technology!
And then it was time for one of the most unique experiences that I have ever done, a real Safari! A two-hour safari around the whole of the Port Lympne Safari, when we had the opportunity to see all of the animals in their habitats, from giraffes to endangered rhinos!
I feel so blessed that I had the opportunity to be there with Sony and I really can't wait for the next time! Now it's time to go back to my sofa to relax watching Netflix, and enjoy the amazing sound that only Sony could provide us!

We had the opportunity to "destroy" a watch and finally to make it again , learning about the production about this unique watch.
However, Mr. Jaeger show us and present us the history and the philosophy behind the brand.

I hope you are well and you are enjoying your Thursday!
Even if I am back in Zurich, my mind is still in Sicily and to all these memories that I created last week because of the 150th Anniversary of Averna!
From the first time when I received the invitation I was so sure that it will be an amazing trip! And of course it was!
As you have already seen on my IG, my trip was full of unique and fascinating experiences in Palermo, Italian Capital of Culture 2018, and its countryside. That's why today I chose to share with you all the details about my trip!
First of all, the reason for this trip, was to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Averna. Averna is the Authentic Italian Amaro. Since 1868, Amaro Averna has represented true Sicilian craft with a story rooted in heritage and tradition. Its recipe transmits the flavors and aromas of the land it comes from and has become a staple in every Italian home, passed down from generation to generation.
In 2018, the Sicilian after-dinner amaro celebrates a new historical milestone: 150 years of conviviality and tradition, set against a backdrop of unsurpassed beauty. On this very special anniversary, they look back on Averna journey, intrinsically linked to that of Sicily!
On these days in Sicily, we had the opportunity to enjoy an exciting journey and to discover the tastes, the colors and the excellence of the Averna motherland.
Our trip started in the Sicilian countryside, discovering the roots of Averna immersed in its beautiful territory. A lemon harvest experience and a fresh lemonade was the best start for our trip!
The lemon harvest was followed by a ‘Festa Siciliana’ in a characteristic Sicilian villa, where Piero Fici - the Averna’s Master Blender – introduced us the right way to enjoy our favorite Averna ! Of course on a night 'Fiesta Siciliana' couldn't be without amazing Italian food with homemade past and of course accompanied by lively music!
Our journey continued with 'Carattere Siciliano' , four unique and so Sicilian experiences and encounters throughout Palermo guided by true Sicilians. It was a morning full of tastes, flavors and voices of this stunning land, discovering the ancient and contemporary Sicilian identity.
Our morning started with an authentic Italian breakfast made by one of the most acclaimed and Sicilian chefs in Italy and Europe, Palermo-born Filippo La Mantia! Then we had the opportunity to walk with him around the Ballaro Market, and feel the real Palermo vibes and of course to taste Sicilian steet food!
Our next stop was at one of the oldest and best Botanical Garden in the world, which is in the center of Palermo! Our host there was the Perfume Maker Meo Fuscini . The scents and aromas of the Mediterranean are never far away from Perfume Maker Meo Fuscini’s creations. Growing up in a coastal village in rural Sicily, his love of organic sensations led him to dedicate his life to translating his olfactory memory into poetic fragrances!
After our tour at the garden, traditional small Sicilian cars waiting for us , for a real tour around the city!
After our lunch, we had the opportunity to enjoy the Italian sun and the pool of our hotel, and tp get some rest before the Anniversary Dinner!
The dresscode of the dinner was elegant attire with a Sicilian Twist.That phrase can describe exaclty that night in the old cathedral in the heart of Palermo!Everything was so elegant with spots of Sicilian Twists! I think you can easily undestand it when you will see the photos of the set of thi dinner!
Being Sicilian is not just heritage, it’s a way of life. Thank you so much Averna that you gave me the opportunity to feel that way of life, with you in Sicily. I really can't wait to be there again!
