Why You’ve Heard Of Lake Como

Lake Como is in northern Italy in the shadow of the Alps. It is known for the charmingly haphazard little towns, the amazing villas and gorgeous gardens on it.  In short, it is a is breathtakingly beautiful spot.

Here are some reasons you might have heard of or seen it:

  • George Clooney has a house there.  He owns the 18th century mansion, Villa L’Oleandra in Laglio.

  • The lake is also known for its pollution.  If the water looks a little green, that’s because it is green. Phosphates and nitrates from pollutants have caused an excessive growth of algae, a process called eutrophication.  Its waters have been too polluted for swimming since 1997.

Fall Fashion Trends

We had a request from the man with four first names to put more of him in the blog. In response, I have decided to start having him model European fall fashion trends here.  Enjoy!

David Beckham in a Slouchy Beanie from Now Magazine

Doesn’t he look just like Brad Pitt or David Beckham in his slouchy beanie?  

The man scarf is a particularly popular trend here.  Being a practical person, I am on board with it if it is for warmth. I am generally opposed to it when worn with a short sleved shirt.  That goes 2x for him.  Although, this guy seems warm enough… Please feel free to weigh in on this, or any other cutting edge issue.

I’m not sure that this trend is going to catch on.  If it does, you saw it here first.
