Eatuscany ~ A Little Bit of Italy In Midtown

Image
One of the many things I love about living in Midtown Sacramento is the food. There is a place to eat on every corner. All good, all have their own little flair.

I also work in Midtown so lunch time can be an adventure. 
Lately, my workmates and I have discovered Eatuscany. A great Italian resterauant (so I've heard) on P Street, gets their desserts from Eatuscany. 
Last week we decided to check it out for ourselves. It is a cute little cafe, not much seating inside but we were ordering to-go so it wasn't an issue. I'm sure they have outdoor seating when the weather is nice.
I had the Lucca. It was delicious. I don't have a picture because it didn't last long.


I plan on going back and trying their other sandwiches. Perhaps a cannoli  for dessert?
Ciao for now!

I'm not judging you for your plastic surgery, makeup technics or even using photoshop on your photos. Nor am I judging you for taking nude selfies. I'm not judging you at all. More power to you.

WHAT I am not buying is the fact that you claim to use your photos as a platform for empowerment.


Women and girls (most important…

The Body Positive Campaign ~ Is the Message Flawed?

Image
There is so many thoughts running through my head regarding this "Body Positive" or "Self-Acceptance" trend. Yes, it is a trend. If you don't believe me then explain the new Sport's Illustrated cover or the new Barbie dolls.

Why do we need to feel being overweight is okay? That it should be acceptable? Now before you pick up your dessert forks, torches and scream "kill the Monster," listen. When someone openly expresses that they do not think that overweight people should be encouraged, it doesn't always mean that they are saying the person is ugly. It means that there is a health concern that should not be ignored. Yet, what is the first response people have in defense of such comments? "She's beautiful you stupid hag!" Yes, she is no matter what size but that doesn't mean she is healthy. And the person making the observation isn't necessarily a hag.
You will never hear a medical professional state that an overweight perso…
