Fashion Week RI Day 1

By Valerie Langlais

“The Colosseum in Providence hosted a modern-day Magna Convivalis Vestimentum (That’s Great Fashion Party for those unfamiliar with Latin).  The inaugural “Fashion Week Rhode Island” event on September 10th was truly an invitatio (entertainment) for those in attendance.  Spearheaded by Trade Secret’s own Yemi Sekoni, the show had the perfect combination of a fun, party atmosphere and serious Lepidus (glamour)!”

Joe Malaika, A Heart of Gold

Making Monkey Bread for the Holidays!

By Danielle Dube

“Holidays are the craziest time of year. Between work, making sure you look fabulous for all those holiday parties, and attempting to catch some sleep, you’ve probably been asked to bring “just a little something” to just about every one of those parties. One of my favorite recipes during the holidays is Monkey Bread. Quick, easy, cheap, and fantastically tasty.”

Growing Up in Italy

By Cinzia Antonelli

Like a real Italian I say without a doubt that Italy is the best country in which to be born, grow and live peacefully!
