Tuscany, here I come! Now what do I pack?

I’m VERY excited to be headed to Tuscany in early August.
I’ve never been and I will be staying in a rented Villa.
I have just pulled out my Italian Phrase Book that my very Italian friend gave me years ago.
I am so happy to finally put it to good use.
Now, the question is, what does one pack when going to Tuscany?
I have done some homework and I am told all woman wear the same thing in Italy and here is what the Italian women are wearing these days:
1. Skinny Jeans
2. Sneaks or flats
3.  Silver belts
4.  Scarfs (this is always the case, but not to be forgotten).

I can handle all 4.
I will bring some sundresses  (If I stick out because of my sundresses, I don’t care. I love them and I’m a New Yorker anyway.  Aren’t we just as up on fashion as they (I’m sure they may disagree on this one, but in any event, that’s how I feel.)?
Oh, I will not bring any shorts.
Apparently, Italian women do not wear shorts.
I don’t either.
We already have one thing in common.

Rooibos (red) tea – attention allergy sufferers

Rooibos (red) tea is a great natural remedy for anyone with allergies- respiratory, food sensitivities or a sensitive stomach in general.  I have both food sensitivities and allergies and it’s been really helpful the last two weeks.

It’s caffeine free, has a high amount of antioxidants and contains two bioflavonoids – Rutin and Quercetin, both of which are extremely helpful for relieving allergy sufferers by reducing inflammation.
If you are suffering right now from annoying allergies, don’t.
Go get some red tea.

Oil paints – oh how I’ve missed you!

My spirit said, pull out your oil paints and I finally did!
I haven’t painted in years and I’ve missed it sooo much.
Never again will I neglect my paints for so long.
I get into a zone where nothing else exists when I paint – nothing.
This was inspired by the artist I love, Amanda Tally.
I might go back and make some changes, but here is what I created so far in the last two days:

Reminder: Don’t neglect your outlet for creativity!!
