Shamrock Food Fair

A few weeks ago we ventured out to the Shamrock Food Fair in Providencia, it was the second that they had put on and I took the kids along as I was needing coffee (cos I’ve been converted and nothing tastes or works as good) , sausages and bacon and hot sauce  and I was keen to say hey to Chef Nancy.  I did not make it to try the eggs bene but that its definitely a draw card for those on the hunt for brunch in the city.

The babes got lucky and scored themselves some cupcakes and then proceeded to……..

Fabrizzio D´Angelo – Painter

In my painting I try to transmit the power of nature from a non-traditional graph, the viewer discover and list the ways the landscape, flora and fauna.

Based on the figurative and expressive use of color, playful character.

The theme I use is the nature, exuberance and fantasy in particular the American landscape and its iconography in the original cultures without any particular base it also inspired the first manifestations and graphic records of the man in the painting universally.

The development of themes or content of my work is the experience of being in nature, physically and mentally, from the geographical point helping to build the imagination of a very simple and happy way.

Ambar Alma

Amber is the fossilised resin from prehistoric trees that grew as much as fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea.

Every necklace is unique with tiny air bubbles and natural particles within the amber itself.

Amber has been worn for centuries as a natural remedy for pain relief and to promote fast healing and boost the immune system.

 Its analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties makes amber ideal as a natural (no drugs) homeopathic product for babies and children.

Amber is warm to the touch and should be worn close to the skin so your child’s warmth will release the healing oils.

A fantastic natural remedy for teething, redness in the cheeks, swollen gums, nappy rash and fevers. It is recommended for allergies and eczema and is used to promote a stronger immune system, assist in general wellbeing and reduce stress.

There are people making a difference everywhere. Lets not forget that.
