We are getting by and embracing the heat, before it all comes to an end and we are pulling out our
heavy gear. August is the month when the entire country of Italy goes on stand-by for 2 weeks to jet
off to the closest beach for what they call ferragosto: a time when you spend your days and nights
at the beach: “taking the sun” (the Italian-English translation for sunbathing) during the day, and
dancing the night away, sipping on vodka lemons or gin tonics. Being in Sicily during this time is
most beautiful restaurants by the sea that serve classic Italian dishes with the freshest seafood you can
find on the Mediterranean. It’s a time when you feel young, wild and free. Days turn into nights and
nights into days and you live each day excited to see what the next one will bring.
We spent the day on the very rocky, pebble stone beach, looking out on the Mediterranean Sea, with Isola Bella as a backdrop. We also enjoyed a boat tour around the island, looking into the grottos, listening to the music we had brought on board, thanks to the Bose speaker, and jumped over board to take a dip in the crystal clear waters. It was the perfect day, ending in the best way possible with a gelato from C&G, which was “to die for”. Summers in Sicily are simply magical.

Fashion Is Instant Language - Prada
It’s a classic tale of destiny. Two former cruise ship workers fall head over heels in love with two Sicilian Officers. Leaving their family and friends in Canada to live the Italian dream of romance and fashion. Both attending fashion school whilst waiting their men to return from the sea. Their struggles, adventures and experiences depicted here in two very different, but similar styles as they entertain you with fashion as they see it.
