Starbucks has arrived in Italy in great style!

Starbucks has recently celebrated the opening of its first coffee house in Italy and is probably the world's most beautiful Starbucks to date: the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Milan. The much anticipated Milan Roastery is the jewel of Starbucks global retail footprint. It is a place where Italian guests can experience the art and science of coffee in a breathtaking environment, paying homage to the city of Milan on the one hand and worshiping everything Starbucks learned about coffee in its 47-year history on the other.
With the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in the historic Post building on Piazza Cordusio, Starbucks opened its first location in Italy, with the plan to bring more coffee houses to Milan by the end of 2018.
Designed as a tribute to the Italian espresso culture that inspired Howard Schulz to create the Starbucks Experience 35 years ago, the new Reserve Roastery in the capital of fashion and culture presents the art of coffee roasting, brewing, and coffee over an area of 2,300 square meters.
It offers first-class reserve experience with limited available Arabica coffee varieties from 30 countries from around the world, the first time roasted in Europe. The range is rounded off with freshly baked delicacies from local baker Rocco Princi.

SHISEIDO ULTIMUNE: the power of timeless beauty

SHISEIDO has started a new era in cosmetics with the Power Infusing Concentrate Ultimune.
Every second of every day a complex network of cells, organs, tissues and fluids collaborate within our bodies to prevent disease and infection. This is the immune system, a fascinating area for researchers and the subject of increasingly advanced research for some years now.
Just like the body, skin has its own immune system to protect against environmental damages, emotional stress and ageing, factors which not only weaken skin, but also damage its appearance.
But unfortunately the cell that safeguards our skin’s immunity and more precisely the Langerhans cell are only the 2% to 5% of the epidermis.
Recent research has shown that Langerhans cells can get rid off the warning signals the skin gives off when exposed to UV, chemical substances and other stimuli, by attenuating the over-reaction and therefore play an important role as multi-difensive protector.
Shiseido has developed the first complex that directly targets Langerhans cells. It restores the Langerhans cell functions that have been weakened by environmental factors, ageing and emotional stress. Ultimune ComplexTM, is a synergy of 3 key ingredients : Bulgarian rosewater, Aqua-in-Pool, and ß-Glucan. Ultimune ComplexTM improves Langerhans cells’ defensive function by 64%* while also stimulating collagen production, encouraging hydration and strengthening skin barrier function.
The perfect solution is here with Ultimune, the first product to reactivate the skin’s multi-defensive power to resist, protect, regenerate and strengthen against harmful aggressors. It is the power your skin needs to visibly slow down the ageing process for as long as possible. 
Ultimune activates 4 powers within your skin: 
- The power to RESIST 
- The power to PROTECT 
- The power to REGENERATE 
- The power to STRENGHTEN 
With Ultimune women of every age and every skintype can rediscover timeless beauty with a perfect, flawless and trouble-free skin glowing with health.

Inspired by Washoku a traditional Japanese cuisine WASO incorporates exclusive technologies and the latest research while bringing the natural goodness of each ingredient. The WASO skincare line was created in 2017 to address specific needs of young and adult's skin while also boosting its resistance to daily stressors. The two new products visibly and instantly rescue skin by resolving concerns caused by daily environment and lifestyle.

SONY XPERIA XZ2: my review

As you may know when it comes about technology and more precisely mobile phones I am a huge Sony fan. The last three handsets I owned and of course  my current one have all been from Sony and I have always been positively impressed. A while ago I was asked to test the new Xperia XZ2  and I was of course very excited and curious to try it out.
I can honestly say that I have not been disappointed and out of all the Sony smartphones I owned this is surely the best one.
The XZ2 is packed with all the latest Sony technologies and truly gives you a whole new entertainment experience in many ways. Thanks to Sony's Dynamic Vibration System and a full HD+HDR display and Sony Bravia tv technology watching movies or video becomes an wonderfully exciting experience. The XZ2 is also packed with the world's first 4K HDR movie recording in a smartphone giving you more contrast, colour and details.
The design of the handset is really stunning: unique, sleek and elegant but also functional and fluid. The XZ2 feels and fits perfectly in the hand as the 3D glass surface creates a seamless shape that is really comforable to hold. It is beautiful inside and outside!
I really enjoy watching my favourite tv shows on the go as the XZ2 can play HDR the quality of the images is always spot on, with intensely vivid colours and great clarity. The XZ2 also boasts the loudest Xperia speakers ever the S-Force Front Surround giving you a true cinema effect on your smartphone.
When it comes about camera the new XZ2 once again doesn't disappoint. Thanks to the new advanced Motion Eye Camera you can really capture some breathtaking images or film in 4K HDR. One of the camera features I like the most is the predictive capture function which automatically detects motion or a smile before you even press the capture button, ensuring you never miss any important moment of your life. The 19MP camera is capable of capturing details and colours in a great quality. You can use it manual mode if you are an expert or the auto mode is also top class especially with close-ups.
Another thing that really impressed me of the new XZ2 was its battery life as it easily lasts all day with a standard charge. The XZ2 has a 3180mAh battery and whenever extra energy is needed Smart Stamina works ahead of time to keep you going for longer. The handset is also wireless charging enabled making top-ups really easy and quick.
Running on Google's mobile latest version operating system Android 8 Oreo the XZ2 is up-to-date with the latest software. Of course you can personalize the look of your XZ2 as themes and wallpapers are available, some of the themes are even interactive which is really a great plus.
Compared with the XZ1 surely the XZ2 looks more modern and sleek as the squarish design has been replaced with a beautiful curved-glass back. The XZ2 really sits comfortable in the hand and definetely looks the part. It is equipped with all the latest technologies giving you an excellent performance. The camera takes some stunning photos even in low light conditions. The XZ2 is all in all a great Android phone that gives you a fast and reliable performance and a vibrant 4K HDR display.
