Italian Culture.

Italians do everything differently and it takes some getting used to. They take long breaks in the afternoon, close their doors on Monday, and love to ask for kisses as payment.

Venice(Well, wouldn’t that be nice?)

Venetian bridge(An homage to Parisian lock bridges, this tiny tribute was found in Venice)

Kiko(Ahh, nail polish! Not everything is different in Italy)

Gelato(Gelato on every corner. Can Italians really eat that much gelato? Maybe!)

Italian Market(Salted foods are sold in all of the farmers markets. This woman is buying a large piece of fish)

Carnivale(There were Carnivale stores on every corner. A few had the most impressive handmade masks)

Flower(Roses were in full bloom, so beautiful)

Italians were funny too, a lot of the people I met had me in stitches. But that’s something I can’t photograph.

Welcome to the Emerald City

Brittany and I are creative people who are influenced by a lot of things: candy, fashion, pigeons, but especially color. We tend to see things more clearly when they are expressive. We love the color green because it signifies nature, hope, wealth, and mint flavored M&M’s!

Green M&M's(These bad boys were 3 for $2! It hurt, but we ate ’em all!)

(We love the look of deep green nail polish)

(Brittany is wearing green nail polish, jade stone necklace, and green eyeshadow)

accesories(Jade necklace upclose and green belts make for a nice accessory)

green makeup(green makeup was applied in the crease of my eyelids and accented by a bold red lip)
Green cape(When the weather gets cooler, I love taking out my thick green cape)

(The weather was 80+ degrees a week ago so I was able to wear this green dress to work without tights, I forgot what that felt like!)

Green is a color that is subtle enough to be an accessory and also bold enough to be a focal piece. It’s various shades provide something for everyone so if you don’t have a strong green piece, we suggest you find one that you love because you can wear it in every season!
