MAP OF ITALIAN WINE REGIONS

Posted on Updated on

Italian wine is one of the most difficult regions to get to know. Why? Well for one, the Italians use an esoteric wine labeling system, much like the French. But that’s not even the biggest problem in terms of familiarizing yourself with Italian wines. The hardest part is learning all the different grape varieties.

At the moment, there are about 350 official Italian wine varieties. There have been rumors that over 2,000 different Italian grapes exist, but this might be a bit of an exaggeration– something Italians do well.

See an easy to understand map of Italian wine regions and major wine varieties. Learn about the 20 Italian wine regions and which ones to try first when delving into Italian wines.

With the arrival of the beautiful season, there is the ideal time to discover the genuine flavors of Chianti’s lands. Tenuta Belvedere welcomes visitors to Wine Tour who want to make this wonderful tasting experience. Tenuta Belvedere is set on the beautiful Florentine hills of Chianti DOCG, a few kilometers from Florence, in the town of Rignano sull’Arno. For its guests, it organizes tastings in the company that represent a unique opportunity to enjoy excellent Tuscan vinification products. The wines of the Tenuta Belvedere wineries are born in accordance with the ancient wine tradition, landscape and peasant tradition. Love for nature is found in every taste of Chianti tasted.

Tenuta Belvedere has its roots in the troubled times of the fights between Guelphs and Ghibellines. For more than a century, a branch of the powerful Mozzi family, wealthy bankers who had the management of the Pontifical Treasury, retained the property…  http://www.tenutabelvedere.it

NICE MUSIC INSPIRATION: 2016’s SUMMER JAMS

Posted on

2b784240220e56d9ab86f5d63f91b250

Summer is here so let’s update your playlist and your wardrobe.

Summer is a time for sun, fun, and general leisure. The best way to enhance the experience is by adding the right music. That’s why from June to August, radio stations, music sites, and social media designate the perfect summer songs and play them on repeat. Past songs of the summer have included Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” and Pharrell’s “Happy”.

A summer jam is not just any song. It is one that is usually released in the preceding spring, it’s upbeat, and it has a way of making everyone who listens to it feel instantly better. Perfect for road trips, barbecues, beach days, and festivals, a great summer song invites you to go out into the world, fall in love, or have an adventure. It sweeps you up and makes you want to dance like there’s no tomorrow.

The best time to listen to this music: when you want to get into a summertime mindset.

Here are 3 outfits inspired by the summer songs of 2016:

“Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake

I love this positive song about feeling good and expressing your happiness through your dance moves. Not only is this song ebullient and exciting, but the video shows off a variety of people bouncing, bopping, and boogieing to the lighthearted track. It’s fabulous and fun.

MTM5NTQ3Mjk1NDcyNDI4NTQ5

Recreate Justin’s outfit and embrace summer whites with a striped tank and twill shorts. Make the most of those long days with a cute watch. Slip on a pair of sneakers for all your dancing needs, then finish the look with a bit of sunshine and sun shaped earrings.

“This Is What You Came For” by Calvin Harris feat. Rihanna

Calvin Harris is a master at creating songs that inspire people to dance. His third collaboration with Rihanna is no exception; “This Is What You Came For” has all the elements of a summer anthem. The perfect mesh of Rihanna’s R&B and Calvin Harris’ electronic vibes, this effervescent song stays with you long after you hear it. (And that video?! Perfection.)

Ideal for festival season, days at the carnival, and all activities that start during the day and last well into the night, this look will ensure all eyes are on you. This metallic co-ord set pays homage to Rihanna’s oversized jumpsuit while keeping you cool. Enhance your tan with a glowy bronzer. Keep your hair out of your face with embellished pins. Complete the outfit with comfy sandals and a pretty wristlet.

“One Dance” by Drake feat. Wizkid & Kyla

This song is EVERYWHERE and for good reason: It’s a true gem, and it’s from Drake’s new album “Views from the 6”. Reggae influences and a cool backing track make this the perfect track for chilling out after a long day of sun.

Whether you are hanging out around a bonfire or ambling down the boardwalk, this outfit embraces the light of summer for a vibrant look. During Drake’s performance, the lights bounce right off of him, so mirror that effect with a flowy iridescent tank. Black shorts keep the focus on the top. Beauty and function meet in a lipgloss with SPF 30 to protect your lips from the sun. Protect your eyes with cool rainbow sunnies. Trip the light fantastic with prism earrings and finish the outfit with cute, embellished flip-flops.

Have a great summer, guys!

#EIVISSA

Posted on Updated on

Say Ibiza and say discos . Say Ibiza and in the collective you draw immediately the picture of a situation made ​​up of people in tank top , shaved up to the limit of depilabile , queuing to get to dance and is found the next morning on the beach with gait and zombie first caipiroska glass in hand already at ten am.

But no. No sir, Ibiza is a world meant to discos and light, some slight exaggeration, and many, many Milanese, but is also and above all an island full of corners to discover, of light that illuminates small golden statues of Buddha in meditation collected , hippy markets that sell useless things and therefore must-buy, a corner of paradise where wait the sunset on the beach and applaud the sun seems to descend vertically into the sea calm, to exchange the day with the night, the hour of breakfast snack, dine when we would look good for an early breakfast, to eat bread with aioli after the last dive in the cove full of tourists who take off the costume as it were the most natural thing in the world.

Ibiza is the island of white dresses and stivalacci of skin, hair bend to tie in your hair and a thousand bracelets braided leather to tie around the wrist.

Ok go a small my selection…

5 FAVORITES: WAYS TO LIFT YOUR MOOD

Posted on Updated on

eb76d1325899f8103d2ec69262d8ac54

Sometimes no matter what you do, the day seems off. Call it a funk or just a bad mood, you can’t seem to figure out what’s wrong. Hopefully this doesn’t happen too often, but when the inevitable happens, everyone should know that there are ways to get through it. There have been studies on what effects mood and how, but these are a few of my favorites. Try them when you need a mood booster or share them with a friend needs it.

Eat

A greasy meal may cheer us up for a minute when we’re feeling down, but that’s not what I’m talking about (and I think we can all agree that’s probably not the best route). Treating yourself to a littledark chocolate can enhance your mood though! The cocoa can boost your serotonin levels and increases feelings of contentedness. Bananas, turmeric, and berries have also been known to boost moods.

Listen

You may know how much I utilize sound therapy to relieve stress and anxiety. Taking time to focus on the sounds around you can put you in a better mood. I meditate with my singing bowl, but you can also listen to binaural beats, which are perceived when each of two sounds of different frequencies are heard in each ear. (Listen here). Certain frequencies can promote brain activity, or even a more relaxed state. But you can also pick up your mood by listening to some of your favorite songs. These days, you can find music for every mood, so don’t underestimate its power in brightening your day!

Exercise

Exercise is perhaps the most well known stress reliever. But did you know it can actually trigger positive emotions? Yep, that feeling after you just kicked butt at the gym is often compared to a temporary euphoric state brought on by an activity’s endorphin release. Regular exercise can alsodecrease feelings of pain, but regular is the key word here. You have to make it a regular part of your routine to really benefit long term.

Retreat

Time spent in nature will work wonders for your mood. Countless studies have linked to nature as a promoter of positive attitudes. And like certain foods, being outside is said to boost serotonin. Nature also helps keep your circadian rhythm on track, which helps make you more alert during the day and have more restful sleep at night. But if you can’t spend the day hiking or camping, no worries! Even looking at videos or pictures of peaceful nature scenes can boost your mood. If you like nature and are looking for a way to increase positive vibes this year, consider making going outside one of your resolutions. Even a quick walk on your lunch break can give you comfort, energy, and help you refocus.

Create

Although all artists know that creating art is essential to our happiness, even the not-so-artsy types should definitely give this a try. In fact, those who appreciate the arts are known to generally be happier than those who don’t. My suggestion is to set aside a few moments to doodle, paint, create a scrapbook etc. – without any expectation. You’ll likely get lost in creating and find that it did lift your mood!
