No, really

I came across this newspaper article in the Toronto Star a few days ago and I thought I would share it with all of you. For some reason I am not surprised that this happened in Italy. What are your thoughts?

Sagra is an annual thing here in north Italy where every summer the small villages cook for the masses. If you love food and you're in Italy you need to find a sagra. They are usually held in small towns so you will need a car to attend. When they advertise a sagra the signs are big, colourful and very detailed listing the time and date of the sagra. The sagra I attend had games, a few rides, and a stage with music and many small booths selling stuff. Here are some pics from Sagra di valle san Giorgio. Stay FAB!


Yes it is. Italian Vogue, July issue is on newsstands now. Buy a copy and celebrate history as no other magazine has used so many black models in one issue, other than magazines like Essence and Ebony. I picked up my copy week or so ago after hearing the buzz months back

My thoughts:
I wasn't really expecting a lot. When I heard it was an "all black issue" I thought to myself there is no way a high fashion magazine will be able to pull this off. An "all black issue" to me means, black woman from front to back of the magazine. Well not quite. Valentino, Prada, Gucci ads in the magazine sadly did not feature black models. It's okay though because

BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL. I love the stories which speak about some of the influential black people in America.

If you haven't got it yet, GO AND GET IT.

Stay FAB!

La Notte dei saldi

All you shoppers out there, now is the time to be shopping in Italy. Everything has gone on sale and it seems to be a good one. The night the sales began the stores in Padova were open until 12am. I honestly have not seen so many people like I saw that night it was like the entire city woke up from the Happy shopping!
