These shoes were made for walking...and that's just what you'll do with FSJ Shoes.

In case you haven't heard, there is a new debate going on in the UK. No, it's not about Brexit. It's about shoes.  Should women be required to wear high heels at work? Apparently in 2015 a lady in London was sent home from work for not wearing high heels. Can you believe it? It's surreal!

I would never give in to that. Especially when I remember the torture I went through in my younger days when I was wearing high heels to work. Running for the bus, hopping on the subway, doing all the office errands while my feet were swollen, my ankles almost twisted and my back hurting atrociously. All because of the high heels. It's ok to wear high heels for an elegant occasion, for a party, a dinner or night out but....keeping them on all day at work? They must be kidding! Why don't they (the men who sent the lady home) try standing all day in the office wearing high heels? 

If your feet are suffering, you will not be able to concentrate on your work, or on anything  for that matter, so my advice is: wear comfortable shoes, especially when you know you're going to be on your feet a lot. I found the perfect ones at FSJ Shoes. Their shoes are comfortable, gorgeous, stylish and affordable. 

FSJ was launched in 1998. The company is known for its quality and high standard of crafts. It sells to clients in the United States and all over the world. The mission of FSJ is "to help women realize their dream of fashion and pursuit of quality". Just what we women want.

When it comes to shoes, I am all for comfort and wearability. I want shoes that I can walk in without worrying that they could hurt any minute. The kind of shoes that make you feel you are not wearing any shoes at all, that's how comfortable they are. 

I am thrilled to introduce to you some of my favorites from FSJ shoes. In line with my taste and my wish for comfortable and relaxing shoes, I picked these absolutely stylish and attractive vintage Women's Oxfords and Brogues.

Have the time of your life at Cape Studies

Just like Baby in Dirty Dancing, you can have the time of your life by enrolling at Cape Studies, the only school in Africa to have been nominated by Study Travel  as one of the top 5 schools of languages in the Southern Hemisphere.

Cape Studies is an English language school founded in 1995. The distinguishing feature of this school is its small classes – no more than 8 students per teacher. This is a very important feature because it means the teacher can concentrate on individual students, giving them all the attention they need in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Another particular feature of the school is its location, Green Point, a safe and characteristic neighborhood. The school is set in a Victorian house and from each classroom you can rest your eyes upon the beautiful greenery of the garden.

What is interesting about this school is its infinite number of extracurricular activities. There is something to do for everyone,  you will never have a dull moment. Cape Studies, as you might have guessed is in Cape Town, South Africa.

Cape Town also known as the Mother City, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It’s surrounded by a mountain range, and cozily situated between two oceans – the Atlantic and the Indian.

A city so rich in heritage and traditions, arts and culture, and most of all, diversity (many people and cultures come together in Cape Town) that you will always find something new to explore.

Speaking about exploring, if you want to get your adrenalin going, here is what the school can arrange for you: a face-to-face meeting with the Great White, the most fearsome predator of the sea! This is something even the faint-hearted will not want to miss. A selfie with this shark is priceless!

If you want something adventurous, but on land, and you  like animals, then you can ask the school to book you an unforgettable wildlife safari. Here you will be able to view a wide range of African animals, birds and perhaps leopards, elephants, rhinos, buffalos and the king of the jungle, his majesty the lion. If  you are more of a nature lover, then Cape Studies has just the right extracurricular activity for you: a visit to the top of Table Mountain (you can get there by cable car or walk up, if you’re fit enough). You will be mesmerized by the view from the top; the city, its harbor and beaches make for a beautiful postcard.

Another unforgettable experience is a visit to the Cape of Good Hope (remember  Jules Verne’s “The children of Capt. Grant”?), the Fairest Cape in all the world”! Here is where the two oceans meet. If you go to Boulders Beach you can have a delightful swim with the penguins. Can you ask for more?

Other exciting activities are trips to the vineyards, where wine-lovers can taste the world famous wine of South Africa.
If you‘re into sports, you will be thrilled to know that Cape Town offers an enormous choice of sport activities kite surfing, wake boarding, surfing, golf, hikes, climbing, etc.

After all this work out, what you need is a nice, relaxing evening like a cocktail bar, jazz pub, beach bar or karaoke bar. Lots of Latin dancing for the aspiring Fred Astaires and Ginger Rogers.

Last but not least, you can shop to your heart’s delight in Cape Town, either at the V&A Waterfront or at Canal Walk, the biggest shopping center in the Southern Hemisphere.

Tired of looking out only for your own interest? Well, Cape Studies has invested in a project called Helping Hands, which sets it apart from other language schools.

Helping Hands is an initiative formed by volunteers who come to South Africa willing to do some good and help the impoverished communities. They improve their knowledge of the English language while helping needy people. This is studying with a difference!

An elegant and sexy holiday with Stylewe

The holidays are coming and I've been snooping around the web  for stylish dresses to wear for Christmas and New Year's eve.  Then I remembered that a few months ago I did a post on Stylewe (you can see the post here) so I went back to their website and .... lo and behold! They have the most gorgeous collection of elegant, stylish and sexy dresses, perfect for this season.

I am sure you will find styles and fashion to suit your own personal taste, that's because at Stylewe, their  mission is to make fashion personal and diversified, and  they also believe that designer fashion should be available to everyone.

Here in Sicily the sun is still shining, it's hot and the weather is just perfect for weddings. My niece is getting married soon and she is looking for a dress for her flower girl. I think you all know what a flower girl is...that adorable little gal walking down the aisle ahead of the bride and scattering flower petals along the path. Not necessarily flower petals, I have seen flower girls distributing candies or confettis at some weddings. Anyway, in order to help my niece I did some research and found the cutest affordable flower girl dresses online.

These stunning dresses are sold by Sposadress a global online retailer where you can find the best quality dresses at the best prices. They have a huge selection of  evening dresses, prom dresses, wedding dresses and dresses for special occasions. 

Take a look at some of their gorgeous flower girl dresses. I'm sure you will swoon over them! I showed them to my niece and, as I expected, she found it difficult to choose just one.  

These are my favorites:

Aren't these dresses worthy of a princess?  They are just a few samples of the splendid flower girls dresses and other special occasion dresses that you can find at
