Tales by Light: Photography Brought To Life

Photography is more than just a moment captured. The art side of photography is a complex calculation. Photography is about the light setting, subject, focus, and so much more. It may be hard to see if you have never tried your hand at trying to artistically photograph a subject. That is why I think the Netflix Series, Tales by Light, brings the world of photographers to the public. 

Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore: Towering over Florence

One of my favorite churches that I have visited in Italy is the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is in Florence, Italy and you can’t miss it. This church stands proudly over nearby buildings and has towers, baptistery, and other amazing buildings included with the cathedral. It is amazing on the outside and on the inside. There is even a museum next door that includes information of the creation and preservation of the cathedral. However, that is not the only reason to visit this church. 

Next in Fashion: Designing Your Dreams

The world of fashion is full of color, sparkles, and gems. Making it big in fashion is a different story. It is not sparkly. It is hard to be on the cutting edge of creativity while running a business. Plus fashion does more than look pretty. It tells a story changes the outlook of the wearer. It makes a statement. 

Fashion can be the everyday street wear of our normal lives to the red carpet looks at award shows that we see every season. It is versatile and comes in many forms. I don’t understand all of it, but can appreciate the time and effort it takes to produce. So when the show Next in Fashion dropped on Netflix, I was fascinated.

Wine Fraud: Conning the Bottle and the Drinker

I love a good glass of wine. A little bit of bubbly champagne or pinot noir and I am your girl. When listening to the Stuff You Should Know podcast while working out, I was intrigued that they were discussing one of my favorite dinner drink.  

I had heard of wine fraud in the past. Thank you Leverage! However, I thought it only happened once in a blue moon and only with notable vintage wines.

Zumbo’s Just Dessert: Fantasy Dessert

Dessert is supposed to be just a sweet treat, but what if someone could change that treat into a work of art? Would you eat it? I think I would.

On Netflix, there is a wonderful cooking competition show called Zumbo’s Just Dessert. In this show art meets food. In Zumbo’s factory, contestants from Australia and New Zealand try to impress dessert chefs Rachel Khoo and the man himself, Zumbo.

The Mona Lisa: Stuff You Should Know

The Mona Lisa is one of the most famous paintings in the world. She was created by the master, Leonardo Da Vinci. I say this painting in person in 2017 when I visited Paris. She was a beautiful lady with a true representation of Da Vinci’s style. However, you can’t help but wonder several things while staring at Mona Lisa. 

Questions like who was she and why is this painting more famous than the others? Thankful the guys at Stuff You Should Know decide to answer those questions.

Creativity: The Wonder of Imagination

Creativity gives you the power to create amazing things. But if someone asked the question of where did it come from, I can’t answer that. I don’t think anyone currently can. I was listening to TED Talk Radio Hour when they discussed this very topic.

Go For The Greens: Building The Women of Tomorrow

The program is one of a kind. From the friendships you create to the empowering speakers that you hear. As someone who attended for two years, I can say that the results have been extraordinary. I have been able to achieve things such as securing an internship and graduating top of my class. There’s a new confidence and hope for the future that has been instilled me that I owe a lot of credit to the program for. It’s always an incredible experience coming back

Last Supper, the Last Stop

Leonardo Di Vinci is probably one of the most famous artist that emerged out of the Italian Renaissance. He was fascinated by a variety of academic subjects outside of his artistic pursuit. He traveled all over Italy completing work for some of the most powerful families at the time. People can recognize his unique style on sight. Some can name and describe several of his most famous masterpieces. I personally love his unique style towards painting and pursuing several subjects of study. So when I landed in the city of Milan this summer, I was determined to see one of his most famous pieces of work. This master piece was the Last Supper in the Convent of Santa Maria.
