My Apple Pie (lactose-free)

[ITA] Oggi ho preparato la mia versione preferita della torta di mele. Chiaramente la ricetta non l'ho inventata di sana pianta, ho messo insieme versioni pescate qua e là.
La versione originale vorrebbe il burro, io ho usato la margarina per la prima volta oggi e non ho notato nessuna differenza, nè nell'impastare (a parte il fatto che la margarina si ammorbidisce più facilmente del burro) nè nel gusto.

Ecco gli ingredienti per una torta da 20 cm circa, se volete usare lo stampo da 26 vi consiglio di raddoppiare le quantità!

[EN]Today I baked my apple pie, it's not that I invented the recipe, I put together different versions to create the "perfect one".
The original version has butter in it, I used margarine instead and I haven't noticed any difference in texture or taste.

Here's what I used for a small pie (the diameter of the baking pan was more or less 20 cm), if you want to use a bigger baking pan (the classic 26cm) you just have to double the quantities!

Packing: My Beauty Essentials

Hi everyone!
Snowy day today in Milan!
Since I'm leaving tomorrow for a couple of day at the mountains, I'll show you what I'm bringing with me.
When packing beauty stuff, I like to narrow down to a very few pieces, the essential ones.
I try to pick the most compact item I own to avoid any breakage and damages.



Domenica pomeriggio sono stata alla fiera enogastronomica "Golositalia" a Brescia.

Nail Polishes: My top 4 Reds

Hi everybody!

Today I want to show you my favourites red nail polishes.
Red is my go-to colour for special occasions, school, anything. It suits any outfit and is an evergreen. You can't go wrong with a nice red. 
Although my very pale skintone does not allow me to wear any kind of red shade...
That's why I came up with this top 4.

Baking 101: Apple and Cinnamon Muffin (lactose-free!)

Hi everyone, 
today I want to share with you one of my favourite muffin recipe since I've discovered to be lactose intolerant.

January Beauty Favourites

Monthly favourites are a must for both beauty bloggers and beauty addicts. It's something I go through every month, I like to see what everyone's raving about.
It's something that influences me A LOT when it comes to buy something new. 
That's why my purpose is to be completely honest and careful. I guarantee you that all the products that will be listed have been tested (by me of course) for a reasonable period of time, which enables me to tell you whether it's GOOD stuff or not. That reasonable period of time could be two weeks for a lipstick, but probably one or two months for a foundation. 

Ok, let's see what I've been loving this month!
