A great wine fir this summer : #Gragnano

This weekend the sun was here and so were some spring weather and warmer temperatures. We have always preferred red wines over white one ( it's a matter of personal taste of course) and drinking robust and bold reds with quite alcohol content when the weather is heading towards summer it's not ideal. So we have tried and highly recommend for your al-fresco dining this amazing red wine from the Sorrentina Peninsula in Southern Italy. Gragnano DOC - Terre del Gragnano from a well known winemaker Iovine....more

A BODY CONSCIOUS CONFESSION.

If I'm honest, I've never been able to fully enjoy myself sitting at the beach on a hot summer's day. Sure, when I first get there, I'll plop down my chair in the sand, gaze at the beautiful ocean, breathe in that salty ocean air and soak in the sunshine with a huge sense of pleasure but, inevitably, my gaze begins to wander. I don't think I'm unique in this experience. Before I know it, I'm people watching and eyeing up passers-by beneath the protection of my shades. It doesn't take long before some toned body goes running by on the water's edge and I'm reminded, yet again, of my non-existent exercise routine. I may be thin but I'm not toned. Someone who eats healthy can be skinny but to be toned you need to actually work your muscles. If you avoid exercise, as I almost always have, it's as if you'll always feel that slight sense of disconnect and discontent with your own body. It's a subtle non-spoken guilt that comes out to play only when you finally reveal your skin to the sunshine. No matter how many times I try to feel confident sitting on the beach, I generally walk away from the day feeling disheartened and agitated with no one to blame but myself....more

Summer Stay-at-Home Activities

Winter is the toughest time around here. So when spring finally showed up, we were beyond excited. But now we are looking for ways to spend our days with all this nice weather. + Go to the zoo // This is a more pricey activity depending on the zoo and definitely a full day kind of thing. But it's always fun especially when you have a toddler who loves and knows animals. For me this is more a spring activity because by the time you get to summer, it can be a little hot for extended amounts of time in the sun. ...more
