Since I moved to Singapore, my skincare routine has become very complicated. I am surrounded every day with commercials of beautiful ethereal Korean models seducing me towards an ageless world made of serums, toners, essences and creams (for the eyes, for the face, for the lips, for the top of your nose and whatnot).

Christmas Fashion Illustration drawing Alessia Landi Santa red holidays greetings watercolour

Christmas is my favourite time of the year (the lights! The tree! The traditions! The food!) and it is super important for me to spend it with my family.

I’ve been writing this post for like two weeks. Write, delete, write, delete, write, delete. Everything I was writing was somehow off, I just didn’t like what I was reading. One version looked like the story of a pseudo-hippie and her newly found light shining from within. Another sounded like a motivational post, you know, like those you read on The Huffington Post and stuff (but the bad ones, those that get a lot of “this writer should find another…

A mindful beauty routine

Months ago, my therapist suggested me to do mindfulness meditation. I started to see her because of my anxiety issues so I thought hell yes, this sounds like a great idea. So I downloaded that Headspace app. I went up on the hill of the park behind my office in my lunch break – sounds super zen right? – I sat down, launched the app and waited for the magic to happen. I almost fell asleep. It was so BORING.…
