In my free time I love to go to health stores and spend hours researching and shopping for the healthiest products. It’s my (not so guilty) pleasure.
I’ve recently stumbled on these natural toothbrushes made of bamboo, that have caught my attention for their absolute simplicity. And the fact that they are completely biodegradable (unlike plastic), make it so that they won’t last forever in a landfill like every other brush. On top of that, bamboo is actually naturally antimicrobial.
Some of their toothbrushes have the incredible peculiarity of having bristles infused with 100% natural charcoal, which is one of my favourite ingredients to keep my teeth naturally white.
Charcoal is one of the most powerful natural whitening agents, it also fights bacteria and helps you keeping your breath fresh. The line has also a charcoal toothpaste which I find fantastic to remove extrinsic stains (discoloration from substances on the outside of the tooth, like wine, coffee, berries, other staining foods).
You can now get 30% off from the whole store with the code XENIA.
After all, a smile is the most beautiful thing you can wear!
I’ve teamed up with the dynamic and young guys of family first to co-create a modern and one of its kind male & female collection that I can wear everyday. And yes, I wear it to travel, to go to the office, or with heels for a night out.
If you know me you know that #empowerment of the individual (make you feel like you are in control of your own destiny and life) is one of my values. I’m an empowered woman and I want you too feel strong and invincible when wearing my new collection. That’s why the word e m p o w e r e d on so many pieces. Check it out if you want more.. visit FAMILY FIRST to grab the last remaining pieces.
It’s finally here and it’s going so well that some of the pieces are not even online anymore (I know, sold out in stores in Italy).. below a gallery of all of the unique pieces. What do you think?

Meet the multi-talented yet oh-so-humble-about it Xenia Tchoumi who is currently sweeping through the digital industry with a Dior bag and an empowered look on life. We talk about the struggles she has gone through on her way to success, but how having the right attitude can take you anywhere. Plus how she looks gorgeous on a day-to-day.
With a total of eight million followers across your social media channels you’ve racked up quite a following. With such influence comes responsibility. What are your tips for using social media responsibly and avoiding negative attention for other girls also seeking out to become mindful influencers?
Be yourself, take inspiration from women you love online but don’t be a copy cat. Work on your pages consistently, timing and rhythm are fundamental. Educate yourself: there’s plenty of good advice online on how to be a successful creator in your field.
Regarding bullying; there are two ways; you either completely ignore (it will go away) or you expose the bully to the rest of your audience for them to take care of this person. Both are very effective ways. But do not let it affect you and look at them with compassion; if the same bully was in front of you in real life, he or she wouldn’t have the courage to say even 20% of what they are capable to write!

Deborah Lyons, brought a group of powerful and accomplished ladies (not just models, but as well a professional ballerina, a runner, a illustrator amongst others) to walk in a unique catwalk on the Eurostar.
Deborah Lyons who is known for her feminine take on tailoring has shown a collection of playful floral prints, feminine tailored separates and party-ready sequins.
With so many fashion shows taking place over fashion month, everyone’s attention span is short - yet this unique show definitely managed to capture imaginations.
I felt very honoured to be part of a group of young, empowered ladies - each and everyone with a unique story and truly something to say.
Hi Beautiful people,
I have been absent with blogging as I was having some platform problems, and decided to take matters into my own hands.
This newest official page is a work in progress, and my new baby. I will be updating the blogging session with past and upcoming projects, videos, shoots as well as thoughts about the fashion and digital industry. I will try to be as always as direct and as honest as I can.
Being right in the middle of fashion month I can clearly state that what this industry needs is a refreshing injection of directness, kindness and honesty.
But not the type of fake kindness that screams “I’m nice to you cause I think I need you for my career”. I want human kindness, on the basis of nothing, the type of conversation that you’d have with your cab driver, cleaner or plumber. As well as with the editor of the one of biggest fashion magazines, the next IT-girl (is this term still in use?) or the marketing director of a brand you’d love to work with. I want to level up the field, remove the fakeness, see people relaxed while they are working and see them laugh more of genuine joy.
Call me an idealist, but we are all in this together, and competition is nothing but an illusion. Walk your own way, and you will get to your own, unique destination.
Welcome to the new Chicoverdose.
