An elegant and sexy holiday with Stylewe

The holidays are coming and I've been snooping around the web  for stylish dresses to wear for Christmas and New Year's eve.  Then I remembered that a few months ago I did a post on Stylewe (you can see the post here) so I went back to their website and .... lo and behold! They have the most gorgeous collection of elegant, stylish and sexy dresses, perfect for this season.

At Stylewe you can find dresses from cutting edge independent designers from all over the world, so you have a wide variety of styles to choose from. There is something for everyone. I am sure you will find styles and fashion to suit your own personal taste, that's because at Stylewe, their  mission is to make fashion personal and diversified, and  they also believe that designer fashion should be available to everyone. In fact their prices are affordable as you can see when you visit their website. More dresses.

Here below I have listed a few of my personal favorites. As most of you already know, I have a particular "affection" for the color red, so my list includes lots of red dresses.

GET YOUR FLOWER GIRL DRESS AT SPOSADRESS

Here in Sicily the sun is still shining, it's hot and the weather is just perfect for weddings. My niece is getting married soon and she is looking for a dress for her flower girl. I think you all know what a flower girl is...that adorable little gal walking down the aisle ahead of the bride and scattering flower petals along the path. Not necessarily flower petals, I have seen flower girls distributing candies or confettis at some weddings. Anyway, in order to help my niece I did some research and found the cutest affordable flower girl dresses online.

These stunning dresses are sold by Sposadress a global online retailer where you can find the best quality dresses at the best prices. They have a huge selection of  evening dresses, prom dresses, wedding dresses and dresses for special occasions. 

Take a look at some of their gorgeous flower girl dresses. I'm sure you will swoon over them! I showed them to my niece and, as I expected, she found it difficult to choose just one.  

These are my favorites:
















Aren't these dresses worthy of a princess?  They are just a few samples of the splendid flower girls dresses and other special occasion dresses that you can find at http://www.sposadress.com/

OSTELLINO - a small paradise in Sicily

The Ostellino is a small but comfortable B&B at the foot of Mount Erice, in Trapani on the North-Western coast of Sicily. Here you can enjoy the beautiful countryside and the  Mediterranean coast. The Ostellino is strategically located, it is  near the airport, the port and train station so it is very convenient to reach. It is run by Chika and Andrea.

In 2013 I published a post on the Ostellino. You can find it here. Later in 2014 I had a photoshoot with my vintage clothes at the Ostellino. 

Here are some pictures of this little paradise in the Sicilian countryside

COLICCHIA - a Sicilian Icon

Colicchia is the most famous pastry shop in Trapani, a port city located in North-western Sicily. It is an impossible mission, even Tom Cruise would agree, to find cannolis anywhere in Sicily which are better than Colicchia's. Their granitas and sherbets are the best in the area, as are their pastries. Here are some pictures to give you an idea of the goodies you can find at Pasticceria Colicchia. You can also refer to my previous post here  on Colicchia which I published a few years ago

How a visit to the dentist can turn into a pleasure trip

The dental clinic Odontovita in Romania offers high quality dental treatment by highly qualified dentists, dental technicians and assistants at affordable prices.  The staff is friendly and passionate about their work and their priority is the health and well-being of their patients.

Odontovita has three clinics, located in Transilvania, each one equipped with the best and most up-to-date dental equipment. They offer world-class treatments by prominent  professional dentists and oral surgeons.

When travelling abroad, especially for medical reasons, one tends to worry about the language. It is of utmost importance that the patient and doctor understand each other perfectly. You don't need to worry about that at Odontovita.  The staff is fluent in English, Spanish, French and Italian.

Depending on the kind of treatment you require, it might be a good idea to plan to stay in Romania for several days or longer. You may need to go back to the dentist for a check-up. If you need a multi-stage treatment, then I strongly suggest you plan a longer stay. The clinic will provide assistance regarding room and board as well as tourism. This brings us to the picturesque sights in Romania, in this particular case, specifically in Transylvania. Look at the pictures below....aren't they spectacular?

                                       -----------------------------

Il turismo dentale sta aumentando globalmente di giorno in giorno. Molte sono le persone che vanno fuori dal loro paese per trattamenti dentali. 

La clinica Odontovita in Transilvania,  Romania, offre trattamenti dentali di ottima qualità, fornite da dentisti e tecnici molto preparati professionalmente, che hanno a cuore la vostra salute e benessere. Come vedrete dal sito, anche i prezzi sono ottimi.

La Romania è facilmente raggiungibile dall'Italia, in poche ore siete lì. La lingua non è un problema perchà nella clinica parlano italiano, inglese, spagnolo e francese. I rumeni in generale parlano bene l'italiano, anzi vi posso assicurare per esperienza personale, che alcuni lo parlano meglio di me:)

Se pensate di trattenervi per alcuni giorni o per un periodo più lungo (dipende dal trattamento richiesto), la clinica vi aiuterà a trovare alloggio. Vi aiuterà anche a organizzare viaggi turistici. Guardate che meraviglia troverete in Transilvania!

What's in season

We've been having torrid hot weather, as high as 35° C (which is about 95° F) so crops are flourishing.  The prediction is that we're going to have great wine this year, in fact shops are full of luscious, ripe grapes, both red and white. It's clear that they will make great VINO! 

Yellow melons, typical of our area, are being sold everywhere. They are so sweet and juicy! 

Watermelons are so abundant that I decided to wear them. 

The season for strawberries is over. Never mind, I have my strawberry earrings. 

What fruits or vegetables are typical of your area and are in season now?
