Keep Calm and Forza Azzurri

I'm a huge fan of the Keep Calm meme. As a belated tribute to the Azzurri's performance in the Confederation Cup and in preparation for the World Cup, I created a Forza Azzurri meme.

Inspired by Italy

Italy, its culture, history and people are always a source of inspiration for fashion, home decor and beauty products. Party beads, home goods, to luxurious clothing, anyone can bring more la bella vita to their world. My personal favorite item is the hand painted Italian owl mug!

Inspirational Italy

The central tenet of "la bella vita" or "la dolce vita" is appreciating life's simple pleasures. However, the world is a chaotic place and it is easy to lose sight of the good life. I came across this Federico Fellini quote a few months ago and see it as a reminder that everything - good, bad, carb-heavy - is what makes life beautiful.
