Autumn is one of the best seasons for weddings! First, because it’s so rich in colors! Second, because of the abundance of seasonal fruits and vegetables of all kinds. Third, because the weather is still great, with many sunny days and warm temperatures, but it is not too hot to sweat like in the summertime.

Best book on finding your purpose in life

I love reading books on psychology and life coaching! These books always teach me something new, afterward, I notice things I was previously ignoring and look with different eyes on the world around me.

This book "FOLLOW YOUR HEART: Finding purpose in your life and work" though is incredibly easy to read, like an essay, with simple related examples from life and funny sketches, so that any reader at any age can easily understand the reading. You’ll start to analyze and classify what is currently happening in your life, why is that happening and what you should do if you want changes.

Best creams with SPF for youthful skin

It can be of no mistake, that our skin needs constant care and hydration to stay elastic and youthful. Especially during the summertime, when the sun is so active, and the wind is drying. This is when we particularly need to apply on a regular base a good cream with medium or high SPF factor, which will create a barrier and protect our skin from damage.

Burt's Bees Natural Lispsticks

Dear Ladies,

Who loves beauty in makeup knows, that LIPSTICK has a very important role in the look creation! Moreover, since we apply it on our lips, with whom we kiss, eat, drink, and so it has direct contact with our internal organs (liver, stomach, pancreas), I prefer to apply products from cosmetic brands that use mostly natural ingredients.

Sunday bruch with a mix of proteins

Dear readers,

I think it is a good idea mixing several sources of proteins, like animal proteins from eggs and vegetable proteins, for example from beans and broccoli.

Divide et impera (Latin)

It means “divide and rule”. It describes the type of political attitude widely diffused in history, which is to stir up divisions between peoples to avoid their coalition against the established power. It is hard to tell with precision the paternity of motion, that according to some sources go back to Philippe Macedone, but according to others it comes from different Roman imperators (which may seem more plausible, since the expression is in Latin indeed, and moreover it was the political rule that Roman Empire pursued on colonized territories). Another powerful example comes from the times of Louis XI in France, which used to say “diviser pour règner” (French), which put in the contrast between each other the feudatory in France to keep better control over them.

Crocodile tears

With this curious locution, it is used to express a post-factum useless resentment: just like a crocodile, that tears up after eating, regretting a meal just taken. The same is when someone is saying to be sorry after doing foolishness without having the possibility to turn back and is dimmed to useless repentance. The origin of this expression is not certain: it could result from misunderstood acts of crocodile eyes that tear up (even if not necessary after taking the meal). The lachrymation is useful to these animals to clean up their eyes and it is physiological: the fact that it increases while it is out of water for a longer period (that coincide with the time of the stack on a prey) could have originated the misunderstanding.
