VLD Italian 101 - Proverb 5

This instalment in the VLD Italian 101 Series is the perfect fit for this holiday long weekend!  It's a little reminder to kick back, relax, and have some fun!  Get those belly laughs going all weekend long - it's good for your health! ;)

A quick little note on the technicalities of the language -  This proverb is literally translated as "Laughter makes good blood." As well, this proverb uses the verb "FARE" which means to make or do.  See below for the full conjugation of the verb:

FARE - to make/do

io   (I)                                              faccio
tu  (you *informal singular)                     fai
lui (he), lei (she)                                       fa
Lei (you *formal singular)                       fa
noi (we)                                         facciamo
voi (you *plural)                                      fate
loro (they)                                             fanno

Although mother nature is letting us enjoy a little more sunshine, we can't deny that the fall season is just around the corner.  To be honest, I cannot wait! With cozy sweaters, pumpkin pie and cool, fresh air, fall is my absolute favourite season!

If you aren't ready to jump into the next season quite as much as me, not to worry.  There are a few gradual ways to ease into fall, and changing up your beauty look is one of them.  I've rounded up some of the season's hottest lip shades below.  Have fun adding these dolce colours to your fall palette!
