Two weeks ago, I was invited to celebrate one of the oldest cosmetic companies in the world, Shiseido.
Shiseido is the 4th largest cosmetics company in the world and arguably the most recognized Japanese beauty brand in history.
In 1872, Arinobu Fukuhara opened Japan’s first Western-style pharmacy “Shiseido”in the Ginza district of Tokyo. 150 years later, Shiseido continues to provide wonderful and exciting experiences through its commitment to innovation and excellent quality.

The first heatwave of the summer season in Europe arrived very early this year. Record-breaking temperatures across the continent makes everyone crave for vacation, and spend more time on the coast side. Personally, I didn’t have time off yet to spend on the beach, but I am looking forward to go on vacation soon, and spending some great time in the breathtaking coast of South of Albania.
On last travel post, I blogged about best things to do in Venice, Italy. But before visiting Venice, there are few things you should know what to do and not to do when visiting Italy’s most unique city.
Venice is one of my favorite cities in Italy, and one of the world’s most romantic cities (before Paris). Its stunning architecture, unique bridges, colorful streets, the gondolas floating across picturesque canals. Ah, I will never stop loving the ‘City of Water’ Venice.
Although Venice is a small city, there is still so much to see. Most of people plan just few days to stay, therefore I have created a short list of my favorite experiences in Venice.
Perhaps the cutest and most instagrammable island, the Venetian lagoon Burano was first established by the Romans, famous for Burano lace and bold colored homes. Burano is 7 km (4 miles) from Venice, a 40-minute trip from Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) by a Venetian water bus/vaporetto.
After visiting the south of the Italy, Südtirol Tourismus invited me to visit the most beautiful autonomous province in northern Italy, South Tyrol. The province is bordered by Austria to the east and north, specifically by the Austrian federal-states Tyrol and Salzburg, and by the Swiss canton of Graubünden to the west. The landscape itself is mostly cultivated with different types of valleys and forests and is highly mountainous. Entirely located in the Alps, the province’s landscape is dominated by mountains.
Visiting in 1953, John Steinbeck enthused: ‘Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.’
Amalfi coast and Positano was always on my bucket list, and I am so glad that I had the chance to visit it this year. I would say that after Côte d’Azur, it’s my second favorite coast in Europe. I love to explore new places, but I truly couldn’t get enough of Positano.
Deemed by UNESCO, the Amalfi Coast is a alluring combination of great beauty and fascinating drama: coastal mountains plunge into the sea in a stunning vertical scene of cliffs, picturesque towns and lush forests.
