My two M’s favourite books

13 APRIL 2018

I’m dedicating this post to my two Ms, because before them no one had ever devoted such full attention to me and with such enthusiasm. Here goes… Our reading time before going to sleep is one of the most wonderful moments I share with my daughters Manuela and Maria. It has become a routine that […]


Flying with children

22 DECEMBER 2017

I’m a well-prepared person and when I travel with the whole family I pack our luggage consciously, unlike when I travel alone or as a couple, when I wait until the last minute to pack my suitcase. I’m taking the experience of our latest trip with our daughters to the Maldives as an opportunity to […]


Back-to-school weekly menu


How can a moment that is awaited with such happiness and enthusiasm become a traumatic experience? That is what happened with my daughter Manuela, who aged three and a half has started school in a new school. I held back the tears on four occasions. I explained to her that I felt the same; that […]


My daughters’s weekly menu

How silly and daring to judge from ignorance. That is why today, openly, I […]

Manuela’s terrible two

20 JANUARY 2017

Today I feel the need to share confessions that I think many of you, as mothers and fathers, will relate to, concerning this phase with our children. And, as the saying goes, “misery loves company”… My daughter Manuela’s terrible two phase is stretching into the terrible threes. This expression is used to refer to the […]


VL x The Animals Observatory

15 NOVEMBER 2016

Expressing my aesthetic universe, my way of seeing and experiencing the world, is a part of my life that I need to share. Creativity is a source of vitality for me. Through fashion design, I bring to fruition ideas that are fuelled not only by the present, but also by the past, by everything that […]
