When life gives you lemons, make Limoncello.

What feels more like summer than big, bright, beautiful lemons?!


After traveling to Capri, I was completely inspired by the beauty of lemons.  The lemons there are so large, they’re probably equivalent to 3 – 4 of our lemons here in America! Everything there revolves around them…the food, the drinks, the decor and the fashion.


Dolce & Gabbana has taken a significant part in that role and created a Sicily Collection that has continued to be modified and sold in Capri up to today!

This particular ad caught my eye in a few of the latest SS2016 fashion magazines:


In July 2014, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce hosted a legendary show on location in Capri in a cove near the Faraglioni twin rocks. Only 200 of their best clients and press were invited to the exclusive show, and the fashion was to DIE FOR.

Touches of Capri adorn each look with elegance and grace, showing off the passion Dolce & Gabbana have for their home.

There are many ways to incorporate this look into your Summer fashions yourself!

Why stop at just fashion? Incorporate the luscious fruit into your beauty regimen, as well!

There are endless ways to indulge in the exquisite fruit and including it in your wardrobe, beauty routine and your diet will prolong it’s benefits for a long, happy, healthy life.

Some health benefits of consuming lemons include:

  • restores pH balance
  • detox
  • weight loss
  • indigestion
  • asthma
  • acne
  • removes internal parasites
  • cold and flu
  • canker sores
  • anxiety
  • fights fatigue
  • pain relief
  • insomnia
  • bug bites
  • nausea/travel sickness
  • and so much more!

And one of the best ways to consume lemons the way the Italians do…LIMONCELLO!

Rock the Folklore Trend…

Several people throughout the start of the Fall 2015 Season have been saying how they love the Folklore look on the runways, but they don’t know how to incorporate it into a wearable look for their day-to-day lives.

It’s as simple as pairing a gorgeous statement bootie, or piece of jewelry, with your look to elevate it to the trend! Touches of fur and fringe glam it up or rock a tribal patterned tunic to simplify it!

The Red Lip

This Fall, make a bold statement with a seductive, powerful, red lip. Red is the color of the season, and what better way to rock it, than on that beautiful pout!

Pair it with an all white look for a chic pop of color that is sure to make you stand out.  Some of my favorite shades of red are deep, crimson reds all the way to a bright, true red.  All of these colors are reds with shades of blue in them, so they’re sure to flatter almost every skin tone!  Enjoy!
