    Fashion tips for any occasion

    September 4, 2013 | Posted By: | BLOG |

    With my job, I often help ladies to choose bags and my advice is always the same: try to buy bags with matching shoes or belts (same colour and material). Even the most simple dress will make you feel unique and right in any occasion if combined with the right accessories and well-matched to each other. Maybe you will not need right now but put it in your closet, sooner or later you will need.

    This morning my mother-in-law pulled out of her closet some old pants and jackets telling me that have often thought to throw them away. My advice is: don’t throw away clothes if are well made (well-structured, with a good design) and made of good fabric because will come back in fashion, unless they are damaged (the fabric has lost elasticity or has dots …) and too trendy.

    FERRAGOSTO IN ITALY

    August 15, 2013 | Posted By: | BLOG |

    The Emperor Augustus, the first Emperor of Rome in 18 BC, decided to celebrate the feriae Augusti in this month. August 15th is the date chosen to feast the Assumption of the Virgin Maria (or in Christian dogma the ascent into heaven of Christ’s mother), wanted by Pope Pio XII in 1950, and the Emperor Augustus. 
    This festival has maintained the same importance and popularity through the millennia. 
    For this reason, in Italy, today is a holiday and the beaches are crowded with people who celebrate till the night with fireworks and the statue of the Virgin Maria is took along the coast by boat… at least here in Cecina-Tuscany, where I am.
    So….. HAPPY FERRAGOSTO to all !!!!

    Cheese tasting in Tuscany

    August 8, 2013 | Posted By: | BLOG |

    An old Tuscan proverb says: “Don’t let the farmer know how good is cheese with pears”. This is because the cheese since the time of ancient Greece was a poor food that was consumed mainly by farmers while fruit trees (gifts which rotted in a short time) were destined to the richer class. This good match is dates back to the sixteenth century, but it is still appreciated and served for appetizers or aperitif along with marmalade or fruit compotes.
    During my trip in Monterotondo, in Maremma, the city of my grandparents, I met a shepherd with his sheep cheeses, some made from raw milk, others with pasteurized milk. I’ve been captured by a delicious experiment , Gorgonzola cheese made of sheep milk instead of cow. I bought a several cheeses, some common ones and other particular such as cheese aged in grape skins, the taste in the mouth is a bit alcoholic. The winning marmellade, at least for me, for this last kind of cheese is the spicy chili jam while I really liked the gorgonzola with Williams pear jam (this pear is juicy, clear and very sweet).
    Try to combine cheese with jam and discover your winning match!!

    From July 26th to August 4th, 2013 back to Livorno ‘Venice Effect’ 2013.

    I’m not gone yet but I’m planning to go during this week to enjoy the show, to wander the market stalls and … eat a lot of fish!!!. A friend of mine, who lives in Livorno, sent me these photos and recommended a few places to eat. The third and fourth photo were taken near the church of S. Catherine, this trattoria serving typical food, in the second photo there is the fish market with a small restaurant with outdoor seating to enjoy various fish dishes (my favorite is the fish soup calling Cacciucco, a typical dish of the place) and on the terrace is possible to taste the craft beer of the Clandestino Brewery’s.
    In the first photo another restaurant called Cantina di Venezia.
    I think I’ll try the fish market…

    Wear something sexy and romantic at the same time, something made of soft fabrics that embrace you and make you feel unique. With this cold I prefer a dress in cashmere but silk also can be a good compromise if match with a jacket or ecological fur. Don’t forget the accessories, as necklaces, bracelets, hats and elegant boots or hight heel shoes, they are very important for your look. Sexy lingerie, hair and makeup have to be perfect.

    Smokey eyes for Your New Year’s Eve

    December 31, 2012 | Posted By: | BLOG |

    One sophisticated effect for the evening and very suitable for New Year’s Eve. Applying the black color on the eyelid (near your eyelash line) and then shades of gray, brown or colors (gold, purple, silver ..). The mascara must be absolutely black. To make the eye more penetrating, apply the kajal on the inner rim of the lower and upper eyelid , be careful not to touch the eye; always with kajal (Which has a soft tip) draw a line near your eyelash line and tone it down, keep on with the eye-shadow….start from the inner eye to the outside. For a good make-up don’t forget to draw a thin line of eyeliner on the eyelid, near your eyelash line to intensify the look. I don’t like to cover the whole eyelid with eyeshadow. A touch of pearly eye shadow at the inner corners for luminosity. Gloss or natural color as lipstick.

    NEW YEAR’S EVE IN ITALY

    December 28, 2012 | Posted By: | BLOG |

    Festa di San Silvestro, or New Year’s eve  in Italy.
    It calls for huge dinners at the restaurant or with some friends at home. In our tradition lentils and new clothes to wear (better if underwear in red color) bring good luck for the coming year; another tradition involves kissing under the mistletoe as a sign of good luck. 
    In some parts of Italy, people throw the pieces (usually dishes) in the street at midnight as a rite of elimination of evil accumulated during the last year. The broken pieces, then, are accompanied by some shots, with the double meaning of scare away evil spirits, and to express joy. 
    These traditions have mainly aims to ensure the abundance, prosperity and happiness for the whole year. 
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL !!
