Marras imagined a British-Sardinian gentleman, fond of hunting with hounds in the wild countryside, but driven by nostalgia and a sense of home. “His style is a mash-up of memories.” A feel of rustic elegance was threaded through the collection, which was focused on outerwear. Peacoats and parkas were patchworked from an array of tweeds, jacquards, corduroy velvets, tartans, and felted wools. Worn inside-out exposing soigne linings, they had oversize, protective proportions; and though they looked sporty and functional, they conveyed the typical Marras flair for eccentric practicality. The British-Sardinian nobleman in question was obviously fond of a dapper touch of tailoring. Indulging in thick, knitted robe de chambre and parading sumptuous brocade tuxedo jackets.

Beauty is a message
Curious

Beauty is a message

Beauty is really a cocktail of divine proportions and harmony between the inner and outer world of man that gives meaning to his being and is rightly referred to as a synonym for truth and good*. Relative, however, it is subject to time, morals, and, to a great extent, to the generally accepted norms. In this sense, it can be said that beauty is a kind of aesthetic consensus of the majority about the unique qualities of the minority. Beauty is also a message that challenges taste, imagination and tolerance. In order to determine what is beautiful, we need to realize that it (the beautiful thing) should be liked and surely to cause delight and trepidation. In fact, in most cases, beauty is a wonderful combination of spirit and matter, shape and color, fluid and provocation that awakens admiration, joy and passion.

Cooking for your kids is never an easy task because you have to make something tasty so they will eat it, but also something that is healthy. You can’t feed them potato chips and Oreos for dinner, so you have to push for the equally healthy and delicious alternative. While you think of actual meals you can prepare, there is something that you can change in your cooking habits which will allow the entire process to be a lot healthier. Start providing healthier food by cooking with coconut oil. Of course, there are tons of great tips on how to use coconut oil, but one of the most popular uses of this substance is in the kitchen.
